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

47 unique serial number have now been spotted.

Bit criticism of Huitong this paragraph is a bit confusing, two batches of 24 and 3rd/4th batch?

Two batches of 24 J-15s were produced. Recent images (September 2020) indicated that the 3rd batch is in service, probably for the aircraft carrier Shandong. The latest image (August 2021) suggested that the 04 batch just entered the service (starting from 74?).
