    Can't be a DF-15B. DF-15B RV has small maneuvering fins.

    The photo's resolution isn't sufficient enough to make a distinction as to whether it has fins or not.

    stabilization fins are missing too. DF-11 also have them. DF-16 have smaller ones. I guess it could be a blurry/PS of a DF-16.

    Newer variants of the DF-11 and DF-15 do not have stabilization or RV fins:

    PLA Army took the FK-3 SAM and now named it HQ-22.
    HQ-22 medium range SAM displays on Zhuhai Airshow 2016.

    Evolution path: HQ-2 -> HQ12(KS-1) -> HQ-22(FK-3)

    This is pretty big news, if fk-3 really got a HQ designation. Looking back at what promo materials said for FK3 it is clear it's really a new system, not so much as variant of ks1. Missile itself looks different, its guidance mode may be similar (command plus semi active) but i guess that's part of the low-end cheap mix. And 27km ceiling and 100 km slant range are definitely respectable. If half of the remaining hq2 units (20ish or so?) are equipped with it, it'll be a nice upgrade for PLAAF's SAM forces.

    Impossible to be exact in more since 3 years SOC the specialist for SAM going for Jane's and for new good infos...

    So for give an idea i have about for AF only 200 HQ-2, 130 HQ-12 on 700+ SAM launchers.

    Easy to say but only 15 years ago many many HQ-2, J-6 etc... AF have again 33 on 75 Rgts with old types Q-5, J-7 and first J-8...
    China is gone from very very far away for the quality in 1990 about on 3500 fighters and bombers the " best " yet outdated was about 500 J-7 with some H-6... !!! it takes time.
