In the recent event of US naval C-40A's flight over the island of Taiwan, it was reported that PLAN Su-30 Flankers entered the island's air defense identification zone (

).
In the radar image below, there were two flying objects much smaller than the other planes near the centerline of the strait, one flying toward the mainland and the other flying toward the island.

The first could be the Su-30s (with only one transponder turned on) returning to the mainland after they escorted C-40A off the island. The second looked like another dispatch taking a similar route on the alert for the possible turnback of C-40A transport.

Anyone with an idea what kind of store this J-16 is carrying?

I am not sure that J-11BG participated in last year's Sky Eagle Cup.

剑不如人,剑法要高于人!李红文、张凯站在对手的角度研究,从战术战法到指导原则,从装备性能到火力配系,逐一摸清吃透,全方位学“彼”知“彼”,力争像熟悉自己一样熟悉对手。在最后两场关键性对抗中,他俩密切协同攻其不备,打出最佳成绩。
This Bagu article is about J-11B pilots winning last year's Sky Eagle Cup and the highlighted part is interesting -- I can win via superior sword play if my sword isn't as good as the other's. This implies that the J-11B achieved victory against aircraft with superior radar/avionics like the J-10C and J-16.

19th Brigade J-11Bs vs J-10B and J-11B managed to score a victory despite being at a technological disadvantage. The pilot interview had him talking about the extreme difficulties involved when fighting opponents that have even a little bit of technological advantage. A comment on the Weibo post talked about how 1st Brigade's J-11Bs were always getting dominated by 2nd Brigade's new J-10Cs thereby speeding up the decision to retrofit J-11Bs with better radar and EW systems.
