You have a point there, what IS the point of the J-8, it's like what is the point of having F-4s in the American AF... oh wait... ALL OF THE RETIRED!
so SAC isn't sitting around.

SAC is not sitting around, they are doing the R&D for Jxx. think it's more because PLAAF can't afford to have all J10s and j11, money wise and also engine wise. still have to import engines for J10s remember. so for upgrading the second line of air units, it's the new most advanced J-8s. and for elite air units then J10s, J11, MK2 etc.

SAC is going to fail at their JXX. I am more confident in CAC, the developers of the J10 but politcally, they lag behind SAC.

Chinese need to award companies based on merit and ability; not on politics. I have the feeling SAC will fail on the JXX project.

J8 is a piece of Crap. J7 (CAC) is much better than J8.

CAC has the upper hand like Sukhoi does really because SAC copied the Su-27 as their lastest and CAC has the Jian-10, sure China imports the engines, but i gotta admit, CAC is better today

WHat happened to Xi'an?
