    PL-10 AAM spotted on a J-11B

    Is this the first photo of the PL10, China Air Force's next generation of High Agility AAM?

    Word on the street seems to agree.

    PL-10 (K/AKK-10?) is the next generation IR-guided missile in the same class as AIM-9X, ASRAAM, A-Darter and IRIS-T. It features an IIR seeker and TVC, giving the missile a 90° off-boresight angle and excellent IRCCM capability against aerial target maneuvering at high-gs. It also has a "lock-after-launch" capability, which could extend its range to BVR. A recent drawing reveals 4 narrow stabilizing strips are attached to the mid-section. The development of PL-10 started in 2005 and a test round was launched from the ground in November 2008. The development was projected to be completed by 2010

    By the way, this is NOT the old PL10 that has been in existence for years。

    The new PL10 is compact enough to fit in J20's internal weapons bay and is designed for such use:rofl::
