looking at the photo published above, it crossed my mind how it could appear in a single-seater version, here is the result with a quick photoshop.
but it could be a interesting version , an aircraft multi-role light-weight fighter single-seat.
Good progress on JL10
HAIG, an AVIC subsidiary, makes its first delivery of an advanced trainer in 2021 with a JL-10 III, a version that would be fitted with a PESA antenna radar. The aircraft is said to be dedicated to the Chinese Air Force, according to its livery.
The K-8 has a top speed of 800 km/h and is powered by a Ukrainian AI-25TLK turbofan or a Chinese WS-11 (an AI-25TLK clone) developing 1 680 kg of thrust. However, some export models are powered by the TFE731-2A turbofan developing 1 600 kg of thrust.
Maximum takeoff weight is 4 470 kg and maximum range 2 200 km. Export versions are usually better equipped than the models in service with China (JL-8), and feature components such as Martin Baker ejection seats, a glass cockpit with head up display and multi-function displays and ability to carry PL-5E/PL-7 air-to-air missiles and a 23 mm gun pod. Angop reported that Angola’s K-8Ws will be armed with air-to-air missiles, cannons and bombs.
