    There are five Chinese aircraft with an indigenous AESA radar.

    J-10B: about 1,200 transmit/receive elements
    J-11D
    J-15
    J-16: 1,760 transmit/receive elements
    J-20: 1,856 transmit/receive elements

    IHS Jane's and Popular Science: China's J-10B, J-11D, J-16, and J-20 have AESA radars

    In its March 11, 2015 article, IHS Jane's states that Chinese AESA radars have been developed for the J-10B and J-20. IHS Jane's suggests that an AESA upgrade for older SAC J-11s are possible (see first citation below).

    In its May 4, 2015 article, Popular Science states that Chinese AESA radars have been installed on the J-11D upgrade (that first flew on April 29, 2015) and the J-16 (see second citation below and read the captions of the first and third photographs).

    The J-16 strike fighter AESA radar has 1,760 transmit/receive elements (see caption under third photograph in Popular Science citation).

    @Martian Hey, at first J-10 used key technologies from IAI LAVI of Israel and J-11 from Su-27.
    What's current status of their indigenization?

    Popular Science, Deagel, IHS Jane's, The National Interest, and everybody else say the J-10B radar is AESA.

    You might want to try reading the citations in this thread. I put them there for a reason.

    You already have confirmation of an AESA radar from the J-10B chief test pilot and a military expert interviewed on Chinese national CCTV.

    AviationWeek states China's J-10B fighter jet has an AESA radar.

    AviationWeek agrees with IHS Jane's, Deagel, Popular Science, and Defense-Aerospace that China's J-10B fighter jet is equipped with an AESA radar (see caption below the AviationWeek J-10B picture).

    AviationWeek also mentioned China's Xian H-20 stealth bomber is continuing development.

    They must be substandard radars with capability less than that of other ordinary Radar. They must be like chinese planes. China can build any high tech stuff is undigestable .

    Chinese J 11 surpasses russian jet and still china continue to buy Su35 from Russia. They think that people are as idiot as them. They said that J15 is better than Su33 but when the truth came out, it was seen that it is less capable than 3rd generation planes and can carry a payload as much as Mig 21.

    Man, there's much difference between boot licking partnership.
    If you have nothing to contribute, that is called boot licking.
    Initiatives started by India with USA are similar to how China started with Russia to attain a good aircraft industry.
    You must monitor all sections before reaching any conclusion.
