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?).
49 by my own count based on various posts on this forum and including the below from Huitong via our very own @Deino
Looking at your reply to yourNot sure how you come to 49?
I have 10 in batch 01, 14 in batch 02, 19 in batch 03 (quite unique) and so far 4 in batch 04 = 47
Looking at your reply to your
Mine is 01-24, 30-35, 39, 60-77 which is 24+6+1+18 = 49
Suspected 39 see post #3785, with Hendrik_2000 doubling down on it and you “liked” his post #3788 (I was less sure about suspected 36 in the same post). Revisiting the same photo now I have to say I can’t be too certain...
