Can we tell whether the radar is AESA or not from the radome?


Not really. The plane is still using the old pitot though. The pitot itself may not have a direct relationship with the AESA but the upgrades might come as an entire packaged set.

The new radar might still be in a testing phase. So while they are testing, the pilots can be training simultaneously.

Reason why naval radars can lag behind those that operate over land is that radars over water have to deal with the sea clutter. So they have to do testing so they can filter out unwanted reflections.

That would mean somewhere, they should have a prototype or two with the new radar. It would have to take off from a base near the factory and fly over the water during its testing duties.

each batch is 12 not 24

Nope ... Batch 01 was only 10, Batch 02 had 14 and the number of Batch 03 is not known, but if we take the number of confirmed J-15s and fill the missing ones (for example we know 60-64 and 66-67 and then again 69, so it is highly likely there is also a 65 and 68) we reach a minimum number of 16 within Batch 03. Maybe - when we include even the known 7x-numbers we have even 4 more and reach the number of 20. Huitong claims, no. 74 - so far the highest number spotted - is in fact cn. 0401.

ok so average of batch 1 and batch 2 is 12 thats what I was thinking I did remember I counted them at one point long ago

so batch 3 and batch 4 are slightly larger but no where near 24
