New video of J 15 training
The main content of this program: One day in September 2020, a pilot training base of Naval Aviation University, the flight students of carrier-based fighters, are conducting daily flight training. After flying in the air for more than two hours, student Zhang Yuliang piloted a J-15 fighter jet to prepare to return home, but at this moment, the malfunction light on the fighter jet turned on.

On the top picture, do we see two types of flanker behing build ? Some tails tops looks differrents ? The two middle ones look to have less trunkated top ( the darker tips ones).
Most likely an optical illusion produced by the way the different shades of gray interact with the background color and light.

I must admit, I had a similar idea based on the different primer colour. The green ones left and right seem to be J-15s but the one in the middle looks different. Also it seems to stand out higher ... could be a twin-seater, maybe a J-15S, J-15D or simply a J-16.
