Okay, I will list pics of all of the J-15 aircraft I have found, which now include the 6 prototypes, and the 18 production aircraft, 100-117. I actually have two or three photos of each aircraft.

Here are the six prototype J-15s:

And here are the next six production aircraft, 112-117::

117.jpg

Altogether, then, there were 18 production aircraft we know of and I believe all of them have been on the Liaoning. But the 117 was lost, so that leaves 17 production aircraft.

They also have 6 flying prototypes. So 23 flying J-15 aircraft.

I have to believe that they have produced more.

Perhaps 24 production aircraft in their first batch.

Who knows? (Well, certainly there are those in the PLAN who know for sure! LOL!)

We will have to wait until we see them.

H-6G's missile motor ignites:

Missile accelerates away from H-6K:

Missile continues on its way:

Neat stuff. The entire video has a lot of good stuff in it like this, particularly PLAN vessels.

That's looking good.

The aft elevator is installed.

Both sections of the island are sitting there waiting to be lifted.

But...here's what I hope to see soon:

Notice, I am showing the openings through the flight deck closed off and all of that internal work done. When we see this, then the structure will be complete.

Here's to hoping we see her looking like this within the next couple of months..

I have put together about 150 very decent photos of the PLAN doing exercise over the last few months. If you want to see how far they have come, and far they have advanced in modernizing their naval forces...take a look at this photo album. Feel free to pass it around.
