Four more high-resolution images of J-10C...
You don’t need a full weapons load for training.There is asymmetric load out on last 3 pictures. In picture 2 and 3 only one Pl 12 training round on right wing.
In the last picture one Pl 10 and Pl 12 is carried on non linear pylons.
Anyone can shed some light on the reason.
well, I don't know about vast gap ... but you are right, there is a gap between J-10A and J-10C ... but J-10A is modern enough for most Air Force surrounding China, inc Japan, Taiwan, Korea, and let alone other countries neighboring China.I wonder if there is any upgrade program for older airframes? There is such a vast gap in equipment between different J-10 versions.
