An interesting observation besides the images itself are the two different nozzles of the WS-10B engines, even more that the left one - an older production batch J-16 - has the new engines, while the right one - a later production batch - has still the old ones.

That means they can reengine J-16s with the new engine with very little problem.

Is this that version of the engine? (What’s the designation for the 140 kn now? Seems like we’ve moved away from straightforward A-B-C system).

I would guess WS-10C but I don’t know for certain. No doubt there is commonality between the J-20 and J-16 engines.
