some Chinese news say dual WS-17 4700kg afterburner TWR=9
Great news, not a lot of news about that engine maybe because it's not for the top of the line fighter. Still it's quite an important engine for the JL-10 and proably UAV projects. It's quite a step from the AI-222-25 that have 4200kg thrust and a thrust ratio of 7.5 for the afterburner variant.
