J-11B/BS

The largest variant of J-11 is J-11B, a modernized Su-27SK equipped with Chinese Type 1493 PD radar, a glass cockpit, PL-8/12 missile system and WS-10A engines. A recent image (July 2020) indicated some naval J-11BHs started to wear a new light gray serial number below the canopy.

Su-30MKK/MK2

All 38 Su-30MKK fighter bombers China ordered in 1999 were delivered within one year from December 2000 to late 2001. This relatively fast pace demonstrated the urgency of PLAAF's requirement for a modern fighter bomber. The table below summarizes all examples identified so far. Additional 38 Su-30MKKs ordered in 2001 were delivered in 2003. 24 Su-30MK2 maritime fighter bomber were acquired by PLAN in 2004. One Su-30MK2 (#01) crashed into a mountain during a training mission in April 2002 and was later replaced.

JH-7A

A PLAN JH-7A was cruising over the East China Sea. More JH-7As were produced after surplus Spey MK202s (~70) were imported from UK in 2001. The JH-7A production ended in 2016. Some naval JH-7A started to carry a new 2-digit light gray serial number in 2021.

J-15

The first batch of 10 J-15s entered the service with the PLAN Carrier Fighter Group stationed onboard the aircraft carrier Liaoning.  These aircraft were painted with a PLAN flag as well as a "flying shark" insignia.

The latest image (August 2021) suggested that the 04 batch just entered the service (starting from 74?).
