Does J-10 have conformal fuel tanks? I notice that they don't have much range and pretty much always carry external tanks. Conformal fuel tanks should help.
I doesn't and likely never will. I read an interview with a Chengdu designer where this question was posed, and he said the canards make the addition of F-16 style conformal fuel tanks very tricky aerodynamically. Drop tanks will have to do, and that's why you see so many J-10s carry them.
What a madlad, he did everything right.
I honestly feel really bad for the unit at wudangshan... receiving new j-7 in 2020...poor guys...What do you think: just a deployment or a a new permanent J-10-brigade? At least it could explain the missing Batch 4/5 J-10Cs we've seen thru 2019/20 without a new unit confirmed
