    What in any of the above previous posts make you think the current rumoured design for H-600 may not be final?

    The Chinese way to build a blue water navy in iterations:
    first have a STOBAR carrier, then a CATOBAR carrier
    first have an interims-fighter, develop the real fighter later
    and ... first have a quick and dirty solution for AEW, followed by a sophisticated aircraft

    Because the Chinese people know that the procedures are more important than the material and it is better to have material available in short time to start with the procedures early.

    They already have their quick and dirty solution for AEW; that is the Z-8YJ.

    Yes, just like how there are different procedures and tasks for a fighter designed to take off from a ski jump and a fighter designed to take off from a catapult.


    In any case, for H-600 I don't think we've heard anything that would suggest that it is not meant to intended to be developed as a fully mission capable aircraft.

    This graphic clearly implies there is no shared ancestry between the JZY-01 and the KJ-600 in terms of airframe, as I have said before. Not that you couldn't already tell this by looking at the planes themselves...

    Any recent news on the aircraft itself?
