A chinese AWAC probably would not use the english words “Propeller” and “Danger” to mark propeller plane or leading edge of main gear door. one might have thought a person who would laboriously add the chinese insignia to an CG of E-2 would not miss such dead giveaways of its origins.

Are the aircraft in the bottom right portion of the shot there for modernization, refurbishment or recycling? I can only imagine the J6s are from drone conversion but what about the J7/8s? And is that actually a KJ600 in the top right or a test bed?

In my view the top right one is not a KJ-600, the platform is more like the white colored transport aircrafts next to it. As for J7 I know some of they are used as targets in tests of weapons/radars.
