This will be our new thread for J-10 discussion. Fresh for the coming new year.

Last current topic is sightings and reports of alleged J-10B prototype having its first flight.

Well maybe a hint of what J-10B could do; last month PAF said it was going to procure FC-20 with thrust-vectoring capability. Although the 2010 date for induction is way too soon, I think it will ultimately be pushed up to 2012-2014.
Pakstan's air force picked the FC-20 from dozens of candidates as it adapted Russian engines with the most advanced thrust vectoring technology, the general said.

The supposedly j-10b with the dsi is photoshopped.
I thought so, it would seem ridiculous to be able to suddently change the intake like that after only a few years of service with the J-10A. Is the rest of the J-10B rumours also 'suspect' you think? Tphuang seemed pretty sure about the other information

Well that doesn't really mean anything because the FC-1/JF-17 didn't have DSI in the beginning until I believe the 04 made its appearance in a shorter amount time.

i don't understand why many people want to see j 10b with dsi
My guess its mainly an aesthetics thing IMO, internet forum posters often have a preconceived idea of what a 'cool modern fighter' is supposed to look like and therefore want the J-10 to have DSI intakes when in fact there are considerable trade-offs in performance compared to the chin mounted intake of the J-10A. Its all just fanboy fantasies I guess but rumour about DSI onthe J-10 have been swirlling around forever, I guess we'll find out when we actually get some pictures (either real or photoshopped)

Sometimes obviously fake pictures or unrelated photos are actually very related. The posters are suggesting something without saying it, to avoid getting into too much trouble, plausible deniability, you may call it. So don't dismiss a photo just because it is photoshopped, there may be a reason behind bringing it up.

I believe some said of that CG art a couple years ago when it first came out was the DSI was exaggerated and the design not realistic.

he is not talking about JF-17 style tail design, but rather they are putting ECM package on tail like they did for JF-17. And by the way, thanks for your great work at re-awaking munir into arguing that JF-17 is amazing and China is lucky that this Pakistani assistance can be used to improve J-10, which is an overrated fighter jet hyped by Chinese fanboys.
Thanks for pointing out the ECM package move on the new J-10.

By the way, I don't know why you are acusing me of re-awaking someone into arguing how amazing JF-17 is. I was just simply let people on this forum kown what's happening on other Chinese military forum regarding to J-10B. Yes, it's my 'mistake' not pointing out the 'ECM package' part of the new design. But that's all I've done 'wrong'.

Okey, for the record I do not understand why people are even trying to discuss JF-17 VS J-10 here. IMO, they are just two different planes for countries have different use, and of cause with different fonds. Some people here may still not know the fact that if China has the tech which it wants, then it will have it no matter what. So let me put it straight, for China JF-17 is just not good enough. And J-10A is just about good enough till the new J-10B comes out. Hope I made my point clear, now.
