Just a model someone built of the two seat Su33. Nothing remotely official about it, especially with that computer monitor background. Almost look as if someone made it for some online competition and took pictures with the organising website in the background, as these competitions often require.

He is just showing off something his wife workplace (put in your favorite guess here) give out as memoto/present.

but you are right
these models are only suggestive and not official.

I still have a toy "CZ-8" model someone gave to me as a present long time ago, they supposily got it at a official museum. nothing indicative at all and meant only as a toy.

They are still making conventional take-off´s and ladings with J-15. I think that they still have not enough confidence to make carrier TO and landings with them.

Also, my impression or is there one aircraft with WS-10 and another with AL-31, or are all of them using WS-10 ???

This is at the factory,
why would they do carrier ski jump and arrestor landing during factory checkout flights?

did every factory fresh F-14 flew out of Grumman Calverton, Longisland did a cat launch at Calverton? and had a arrestor landing ? on their maiden checkout flights?

I dont think so either?

according to the latest issue of kanwa, a picture of two seated J-11BSH that appear in shenyang aircraft co. was in fact J-16.

Just wonder why Shanyang is following Russian style of different designation on the same series aircraft. They started by J-11 then J-15 and now the unconfirmed J-16. They are all flankers!

I personally like the western way of using A/B/C/D/E/F etc to represent different models of the same aircraft rather then the Russian way, but who cares about these designation as long as they keep producing different models

actually Kanwa reporter was told it was J-16, the russian also claim that it J-16,not J-11.
according to the article PLAN official was satisfied with SU-30MKK,order shenyang to reverse engineer it.
