Guys, does anyone know how many pylons J-10s have? Wiki and many other websites say it has 11 (5 under fuselage), but I can only see 9 (3 under fuselage).

Also, why J-10 don't have any wingtip pylon? If I'm not mistaken JF-17 that the PAF use is partially developed by Chengdu, which is also the developer of J-10, and it has wingtip pylons. If they can, retrofitting the wiring and adding some strengthening to the wingtips in exchange for 2 more pylons for AAM sounds like a good deal for me.
There are indeed 11... the rwo rear fuselage stations are rarely seen.

I guess everyone has been distracted by the Ladakh incident that this has gone unreported for the last five days!

大陸軍機今天中午再度闖台灣西南空域,國軍照例進行廣播驅離。空軍司令部今(21)日表示,中午偵獲中共殲10型戰機短暫進入臺灣西南空域,除廣播告警外,我偵巡戰機全程掌握,並驅離應處。除了昨天,陸機6天內已5度飛西南空域。
Chinese J-10 has been detected in South West Taiwanese air space yesterday afternoon. Chinese military aircraft has entered said airspace five times during the last six days.

Pardon to ask, but how reliable is this? ... given the faked J-10-image!?

Seems to be not even the ROC's ADIZ and not truly Taiwan's air space ...

Yesterday J-10 has been spotted near Taiwan air space again.

I think there are strategic considerations from the Chinese side due to the recent face off in Ladakh.They don’t want pan green to do something crazy in case of further escalations with India.
