Thanks, it became clearer. But what happened to the L-15 (LIFT) and L-15B? And what kind of varinat - L-15 WRZY?

That's actually a good and still open question. AFAIK the LIFT is still on offer for export as the L-15B, then there is also a carrier-capable variant called JL-10J rumoured since some time and the L-15WRZY is a dedicated test plane for drone development.

By the way, I tried to find a photo of the JL-10J, but alas, I couldn’t. And on the export L-15Z, it also seems there is no A / B?

I hope you don't mind my quick - and very layman's style - for suggestions to add or correct. ...

As for the rest of the prototypes, I was able to find out this: according to "

" there were the following numbers - 01/434, 03/432, 05/433 and, accordingly, the only LIFT at number 06. True, there were 11 more 12 numbers, but if I understood correctly, then they are for static tests. But the number 02/435 was created later and apparently used for the JL-10 tests.
I did not find the abbreviation for the name L-15AW. And you think that it can be designated as L-15A?
Do you also think that the JL-10H was a development from the JL-10 "Status-01"?
Photos JL-10J alas no. I think that it is not necessary to connect the JL-10 "Status-03" and L-15B, although yes visually they have in common in terms of antenna definitions of "friend or foe" and the electronic warfare system.
