Another grainy image of J-15T.

It seems that the nose gear takes the place of the front hardpoint on the centerline?

Again, a PLAN J-15 spotted with low visibility marking ... and as it seems, not only the PLA-emblem is grey, but also the bort number on the nose! Unfortunately, too late to be included in my new book.

The so far missing no. 89 was found

... but also a new J-15S no. 49, so nos. 47 + 48 are missing.

I'm still amazed by the production numbers and especially the bort numbers of the J-15s ... even if now all gaps on the single-seaters are closed and we know confirmed all J-15s from 01-24, 30-35, 60-92 - so in total 63 single-seaters, I am puzzled about the gap between 24 and 30 - i.e. 5 machines - so that I currently assume that this will also be closed and then the J-15 nos. 01-35 are available for Huangdicun and Liaoning and numbers 60-92+ (here I still expect 93 and 94) for Lingshui and Shandong.

What do you think?
