Chinese J-10A Fighter Jet Locks on Su-30MKK2 Flanker





CCTV has aired footage taken during a recent PLAAF (People's Liberation Army Air Force) exercise.

Among the images, there is also an interesting HUD capture showing a Lock On on Su-30MKK2 Flanker by a Chengdu J-10A, reportedly taken on Dec. 2, 2013.

The simulated lock-on is interesting, because HUD captures have rarely emerged from China and, above all, it was taken on a supermaneuverable fighter jet, serving with People's Liberation Army Air Force, Indonesian Air Force, Vietnam People's Air Force, Venezuelan Air Force and the Uganda People's Defence Force.

Obviously, as previously explained, such captures are almost meaningless unless we know the RoE (Rules Of Engagement) of the dogfight, flight parameters, restrictions, etc.

Is that the report where they used Top Gun footage as part of the exercise? :lol:

the so called 'J10C' has been flying for months...and it seems no big difference with the J10B in appearance as what we can see...



Manufacturing number: '2·01', it came with the J10B's first SP batch (1·xx)at the same time...
the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th of first SP batch of J10B in flight tests...

Putin gives green light to sale of S-400 missile system to China
Russia's president, Vladimir Putin, has given a green light to sell the country's newest S-400 air defense guided missile system to China, which Russian media claim will give Beijing an edge in the airspace of the Taiwan Strait and over islands in the East China Sea at the center of a dispute with Japan, reports the military news website of Huanqiu.com, the Chinese-language website of China's Global Times.

Beijing has been interested in acquiring the guided missile system since 2011. Two years ago, Russia talked with several countries interested in buying the system but was forced to suspend negotiations in order to ensure its supply to the Russian military, the general manager of a Russian national defense export company told Russian newspaper Kommersant in January this year. Export sales of the system may not begin until 2016.

Talk of a potential deal with China drew concerns from Russian security officials who worried that it may not only affect the supply of the system to Russia's own military but also that China could back-engineer the technology to produce its own systems. The system's manufacturer Almaz-Antei has eased the former concerns by delivering the first batch of the system. Moscow also announced a plan in January to build three new plants for the contractor in order to build more air defense and anti-guided missile systems. An intellectual property rights agreement that China and Russia signed with regard to the arms trade has also come into effect.

Though in what volume China wishes to acquire the S-400 system is unclear, Kommersant's source said China wants enough systems to equip two to four battalions. The People's Liberation Army has already obtained an air defense guided missile system and another command system from Russian and deployed them in the defense of Beijing and Shanghai, according to the paper, which estimated that the country would be able to control the airspace over Taiwan and the disputed Diaoyutai islands (Diaoyu to China, Senkaku to Japan).

It is definitely a beautiful aircraft. But I never understood why China never exports them. Pretty sure that there are several countries that would be happy to buy these jets.

Until last year, J-10A to J-10C were all flying with Russian engine and Russians refused to supply any engine for J-10 to be exported.

After WS-10B began to install on J-10, so Chinese started to promote their J-10E since last year.

No that belongs to India's mig-21. No one can take it away.
Dude seriously, we all know that China operates its own versions of mig 21 and more than India, that too more unreliable than Russian one, many crashes have occurred which have been hidden by ccp controlled media

Yes, right. CCP covers all the J-7 and J-8 crashes. But reveal the J-10 crashes.
And you know what, there quite a lot countries have been flying Soviet/Russia Mig-21 for decades, it seems that only India found the plane "unreliable". :rofl:

Those crashes which are revealed are those which couldn't be covered up or are reported before they could hide it , those are the exceptions not the rule , no one knows the amount of crashes or the flight hours logged by CCP air force.

you guys have literally covered the news of entire village being wiped out by failed space rocket launch , whatever CCP and Chinese say is not worth the words or the paper it is printed on.

A nation of pathological liars and propagandist
