It seems that there are flurry of reports that the upgraded J-10(B?) has flown a test flight and was seen by witnesses in Chengdu. We'll see if anyone caught some pics anytime soon. If it's true, is there any reason why it seems that new developments come out at the end of the year a lot?

What is DSI? I know is a particular kind of air intake that reduces signature, but what does DSI stand for?

What other types of aircraft uses DSI intake?

I think you are right. Something new has flown, but I don't think it was the J-11B. Most sources put at least 3 J-11B prototypes flying back in 2006. If the J-11B entered production in 2007 as many people are saying, then based on China's production rate of the J-11A, China probably has around 25+ J-11B's or so by now.

I don't think eyewitnesses would be able to spot the difference between an AESA J-11 and a regular J-11, so again we're back to where we started.

On another website it was reported that a new J-10 was spotted, not a J-11.
Err? I thought we were talking about the J-10B, not the J-11B.

Divertless Supersonic Intakes

here is a very basic explanation because I'm really lazy ;)

Divertless Supersonic Intakes (DSI) is an air intake that was designed for supersonic flight regime, so the plane doesn´t need to have any variable-geometry airintake, that´s why it is called DSI. In supersoniv flight regime, it is hard for an airplane to turn, especially kulbit. In order to gain airflow to the engine, most fighters uses variable-geometry air intakes, or moving air intakes that we could found in F-22, or Su-27, or MiG-29, or any other fighters. Fighter such like F-35 doesn´t need any moving parts because it uses DSI. DSI automatically gain airflow to the engine in supersonic flight regime.
