There's a FC1/JF17 poster on the wall, so most likely at Chengdu

This image looked quite different from other previous photos of J10A/J10AS assembly shops. And I can't see any green color anti-slip paint on the shop floor, and no overhead hoist and hoist rails.

Could this be an excellently made CG?

An old photo of J10 assembly line hall for comparison.

I don't think it is the production line but more likely another facility, repair-shop for maintenance or whatever

Judging by the words on the wall, I suppose these J-10S were at the "test flight station(试飞站)".

Latest article from Second to None magazine leaks more interesting details on the J-10C.

Some key takeaways:
1) The radar/avionics are very sophisticated and there is a high level of automated decision making that significantly reduces pilot workload, hence the "supersonic computer on wings" moniker.
2) The J-10CP is an omnirole aircraft equally capable in air to air and air to surface roles.
3) Engine is very good.
4) Has very low rcs for a fourth gen aircraft. Almost stealthy under some conditions. (reiterated, as with engine).
5) Maneuverability is excellent.
6) Sophisticated tech makes maintenance very easy.

Sorry if I missed this, but do we know 1) what the current production rate of J-10Cs might approximately look like and 2) if they're upgrading J-10As?
