    Since in recent days the rumours are again getting more and more intense, some even speaking of a F-20-variant having already won, while others still take the decision not made yet, I anyway start a new thread.

    Here are at least a few posts that hint into that direction ...

    And finally I stumbled across this one ...

    http://mil.news.sina.com.cn/jssd/2017-09-18/doc-ifykywuc6028805.shtml

    If not a fake again it looks as if the carrier-mock-up & teststand at Dalian has a fighter mock-up added.

    Does anyone know if this image from Wuhan is indeed real?

    I'm a bit surprised that by now no-one else posted it here.

    It's probably not real. It was posted on a Chinese forum somewhere and was quickly dismissed as a fake.

    You are correct ! That image was taken on 9 November 2014 ..... and is simply the J-15 replica.

    It's hard enough following Chinese aviation made more difficult by fanboy fakes

    Looks like a smaller replica of the STOBAR carrier.

    He means the little model ships behind the one you pointed out.

    That could be a ship, a couple of ships, or a pile of something. Hard to make out exactly what that is.
