They look just like xerox copies of sukhois.
You just made my day mate. So a single engine, medium weight, canard delta fighter aircraft is a "xerox" of a twin engine, heavy weight fighter nearly double its MTOW? Please compare and contrast before making such ridiculous statements

The refit and upgrade of DDG 167 a Type 051B destroyer has been completed. The most obvious additions are the upgrade of the 3D air and surface search radar and the addition of 32 VLS cells:

"May be testing"? We've had photographic proof for almost a year that a J10B prototype was flying with a TVC WS10 Turbofan. It's preparing to perform at Airshow China 2018

Not for these ISIS guys. They were killed for real not just on paper by Iraqis.




Don’t know what Jordan is in though.
As per F-16.net user who was part of Ok inherent resolve, Iraqi CH'4 had very low operational availibilty (1/4th of Reapers).

China building third aircraft carrier: reports

BEIJING: China on Monday officially confirmed that it is building its third aircraft carrier which is stated to be "bigger and mightier" than the other two warships, a move by Beijing to bolster its blue-water navy capability to operate far from its shores.

A late entrant into aircraft carrier-led naval battleship formations, China launched its first aircraft carrier, Liaoning, in 2012, which was a refit of the former Soviet vessel bought from Ukraine.

Though Liaoning was operationalised and led trial expeditions into the Taiwan Straits, it was widely regarded as an experimental vessel used for mastering technologies, especially to operate the newly built J-15 planes from its deck.

Subsequently, China launched its domestically-built second aircraft carrier and commissioned it for sea trials last year. The yet to be named ship is expected to be put into service by 2020.

China has launched work of building its third aircraft carrier, official news agency Xinhua reported on Monday.

A "new-generation carrier" is being constructed at the shipyard as per schedule, the state-run China Daily reported quoting Xinhua.

The Xinhua article, which was intended to mark the sixth anniversary of the first take-off and landing by a Chinese fighter on the country's first aircraft carrier CNS Liaoning, the report said, without elaborating about the programme of the "new-generation carrier".

The Xinhua article is the first official confirmation that China is building a third aircraft carrier, it said.

The China Daily report referred to the speculation that the China State Shipbuilding Corp's Jiangnan Shipyard Group in Shanghai is building a "bigger and mightier" than the Liaoning and the second carrier.

An official at the China State Shipbuilding Corp's headquarters in Beijing, however, refused to comment on the issue.

Also, information officers of the People's Liberation Army Navy could not be reached, the report said.

China has been secretive about the construction of its aircraft carriers, though the official media periodically releases sketchy reports.

If it is anything less than CATOBAR it is a waste of money.
