    Guys, I don't know if this could be considered as semi-official news regarding the Su-35 purchase. It says Su-35 will arrive in China before Christmas. My stance still remain unchanged; I'd believe it when I see it.

    I saw you posted in the Su-35 thread, I thought it has been reopened. I went on searching the web for Su-35's delivery. I found mixed results. Some report said that the delivery will be on 25 Dec 2016. Earlier than expected; however, those reports themselves reject their own claims by citing some high rank official saying that the delivery will not happen in 2016.

    OK, I'm not going to hold my breaths. Just a few more days to go. 25 Dec is the last deadline.

    Have you heard anything else about this? PLANAF supposedly establishing a new AEW&C regiment on the Liaodong Peninsula.

    Yes, I've noticed this too to be equipped with the KJ-500H and at first I thought it would simply a re-equipment of the 4. AR at Laiyang ... however if the location at the Liaodong Peninsula (which is further north) is correct, it could also be a new one.

    However why two regiments within one Division ?
