J-9VII, the grand daddy of J-20:
The plane never made it beyond concept stage because Chinese aviation industry wasn't capable enough to produce the design at the time.

Nanchang Q-5B prototype
J-5 used as a radar testbed.
This strange machine is CJ-5 trainer that was modified to look vaguely like an F-84 for static ground shots

-- paf flies most of these fighters-- ft-5, f6,f7,f7pg,jf17,j10,a5-- other than j11 derivates and jh7 all others are paf related, thats the reason why i posted it in paf mil. aviation section and requested it to be kindly maintained there--thankyou
I will like to know more about JH-7A
Chinese fighter aircrafts J-2 and J-5
---------- Post added at 04:49 AM ---------- Previous post was at 04:47 AM ----------
will cover some fighters which wernt mass produced, in a couple of posts-- i still cant find the complete article ''j2-j5'' where it starts to desvribe a5,j7

F -12 fighter development program is proposed in early 1969--In 1977, development of the J-12 was abandoned, probably because the Chengdu J-7, based on the Soviet MiG-21F, was considered superior.

F -12-- Profile
[IMG] J-12 [/IMG]
1): J-11: Chinese copy of SU-27 (Shenyang)
2): J-12: Super light single-engine interceptor project in 1960s-70s (Cancelled)(Nanchang)
3): J-13: Medium weight, conventional layout single-engine interceptor project in 1970s-80s(Cancelled)(Shenyang)
4): J-14: Project initiated at the beginning of 21st Century, heavy-weight twin-engine stealth fighter developed from the basis of J-10, aka "Big 10", later cancelled due to 4th-gen fighter R&D proceeding on schedule, experience garnered are to be used on future projects.(Chengdu).
5): J-15: Chinese version of SU-33 with avionics upgrades, carrier-borne version of J-11B, 1st generation of Chinese carrier-borne fighter. (Shenyang).
6): J-16: Chinese version of SU-30MKK with avionics upgrades, variant developed from J-11BS, this is to be a long-ranged fighter-bomber with similar technological level as to F-15K/SG. (Shenyang).
7): J-17: new generation of long-ranged fighter-bomber based on J-11B, to something like the SU-34 but integrated with certain stealth technology. (Shenyang)
8): J-18: new generation of carrier-borne fighter with stealth characteristics, develop from the basis of J-15基础上, integrated with many of the 4th-gen technology. This proposal, along with that of J-19, have received the go-ahead in 2009. (Shenyang)
9): J-19: high-end, major modification to J-11B design to 4th-gen stealth standard, this is designed as a 4th-gen heavy-weight multi-role fighter to serve alongside the J-20.(Shenyang)

These two aircraft designs never made it off the drawing board- the top one is the DF-107 which was intended as a twin engine light fighter roughly in the class of the Northrop F-5. The bottom one is the DF-113 which was a large single engined interceptor roughly in the class of the McDonnell F-101 Voodoo.
This aircraft actually flew but never went into production- this is the Nanchang Q-5B which was a maritime attack variant of the Q-5 strike aircraft. It featured a drooped nose with a radar unit
These three designs are from Xian and are all based on the Xian H-6, the Chinese version of the Tupolev Tu-16 Badger. The top aircraft actually flew- in the search for a faster bomber that could carry a heavier load, Xian tested an H-6 re-engined with RR Conway engines- two in the wing roots which necessitated smaller intakes than the stock H-6 engines needed as well as two more engines on pylons on the wings. It was designated H-6I.
The middle design is from early 1980s I believe and is the Xian H-6M which redid the wings of the bomber to accommodate four high-bypass ratio turbofan engines roughly in the low end of the CFM56 class. It never made it off the drawing board, but it wears the corporate demonstrator colors. You'll notice the fuselage is also slightly stretched and the aft fuselage sighting stations have been deleted.
The bottom design is so outrageous you have to love it. That is also from the 1980s and is the Xian H-8II which took the H-6M, stretched it, enlarged the fin, added a new attack radar in the nose and stretched the wings to accommodate SIX turbofan engines. It never made it off the drawing board, but I did it in all yellow primer colors with demonstrator markings

This is the Chengdu J-9 in all-white prototype colors. The J-9 was a canard delta wing fighter with a single engine. The design dates from the 1970s and had the technology been there, it would have been an impressive fighter.
The top most profile is the Shenyang J-10 interceptor from the 1970s (it predates the Chengdu J-10 which is in service now, the J-10 designation got reused by the PLAAF). It never got built, but it was a massive two-seat delta winged interceptor in the same class as the MiG-31 Foxhound.
The middle one is the Shenyang J-11 from the 1980s- this one predates the current Shenyang J-11 which is a license-built copy of the Su-27 Flanker. The Shenyang J-11 was a single seat multirole fighter in the same class as the Mirage F1 powered by a single Rolls-Royce Spey engine. It too, never got built.
The dimunitive little one did get built but never entered service. That's the Nanchang J-12 which was a high-performance light fighter that flew in the late 1960s if I remember right. It would have been about the size/class of a MiG-17/19.
The topmost profile is the Shenyang J-13 from the 1970s. It never got built, but was a further development of their earlier J-11 design. This one had a more powerful indigenous engine and would have been in the same class as an early Block F-16A.
The second one below that is a chin-intake development of the Shenyang J-13. Like the other variant, it never got built but is considered the "Chinese F-16" and dates from the 1980s. It would have been in the same class as an early production Block F-16C.
The third one is a real frankenplane of a design. Kinda looks like offspring of F-16, a MiG-29, and a MiG-27. It's the Nanchang Q-6 strike fighter and it dates from the late 1970s and like most of these designs, never got built.
The bottom and last one came very close to getting built. It's a side-by-side version of the current Xian JH-7 strike fighter. The PLANAF flies the JH-7 now in the maritime strike role, and Xian has been pitching an upgraded JH-7 to the PLAAF for the deep strike role. I believe that that design, the JH-7A, will look very similar to the Navy's JH-7 with tandem seating, but initially the PLAAF wanted side by side seating similar to the F-111 and the Su-24.

The DF-102 was a Chinese Farmer variant with a unique inlet arrangement and a centrebody bullet radome
Shenyang J-6-III Farmer. Note the wingtip rails
Shenyang J-6-IV Farmer. The wing root gun fairings are removed
The Fantan is a direct derivative of the J-6/MiG-19 Farmer

Notes: Unveiled in November 2004, this ambitious project is one of the first private-venture military planes by a Chinese company; unassisted by the government. Obviously based on the MiG-21 “Fishbed”, the LFC-16 features bifurcated intakes, a planar digital radar and canards. Notably, the LFC-16 does not have fly-by-wire; which keeps the cost down. Guizhou claims it can have a flying prototype within 36 months of receiving an order.
The type is intended as a low-cost daylight interceptor, targeted on the export market for countries retiring MiG-21 “Fishbed”s and F-5 Freedom Fighters. It is compatible with existing systems such as the PL-7 AAM, FAB-series iron bombs, and MiG-21 drop tanks.
Powerplant: x1 Kunlun II afterburning turbojet
J-8-I Finback A and J-7
irfan bhai , Electronic warfare JH-7
The first JH-7s were delivered to the PLANAF in the mid-1990s for evaluation, with the improved JH-7A entering service in 2004.
The PLANAF required a similar aircraft and the program set out to develop a variant for each set of requirements. The PLAAF variant would be a two-man all-weather deep strike bomber, with side-by-side cockpit seating, electronic countermeasures (ECM), and terrain following capabilities similar to the General Dynamics F-111.
The JH-7A had a lighter and stronger airframe than the JH-7, allowing precision air-to-surface capability
