Interview with 赵霞 of SAC. She was the deputy chief designer of J-15. She is talking about her experience working as chief designer of a new fighter. She specifically says this aircraft will have four variants.
Assuming this is FC-31, the common guesses for the four variants are:
- PLAN carrier based
- PLAN land based
Why the heck are they bothering with a PLAN land based variant? Just make that, the PLAAF variant, and the export variant the same.
