    And yet no such aircraft ever came to pass, nor is there any evidence that either the US or China are pursuing anything dramatically different from an aircraft that looks like an E-2.

    Personally think this will be for CV-18 and CV-19 flat deck carriers

    Having fixed wing AWACS means load, range and speed

    Open ocean far from home your defensive perimeter needs to extend hundreds of kms

    CV-16 and CV-17 are just setting the stage

    J15S, J15B and J15T are all most likely for flat deck carriers

    KJ-600 is also for the same units

    Just shows how robust the Chinese carrier programme is

    At first, i was thinking: finally a prototype. Then, i realized that its the mockup that is sitting in the carrier mockup in wuhan for a year and a half now. Nothing new here.

    Nothing new on the KJ-600 but there is at least a new J-15 mock-up installed. Maybe a J-15D/J-17??

    Its another j-15 mock-up in the carrier mock-up. As for if it is j-15D/J-17 or not, well its a mock-up after all. Not terribly accurate, and besides the photo doesnt have enough details for us to conclude anything, IMO.

    To check interference from the "Chinese Growler" with ship radar? Than it is a mock-up, but has real electronics installed?

    Yes, but why another J-15 mock up? ... there must be a reason?
