Have any details about the aircraft's capabilities come out yet - it would not be unreasonable to expect this to be just as capable as the J-11B?
J-16 will be used to replace current SU-MKM / MK2 in PLAAF. The grey radome shows it has been equipped with new kind of radar (supposed to be AESA). With twin-seat and powerful synthetic aperture radar, J-16 will be used to counter Japan's power naval forces using its equipped air-to-sea missiles...
J16 looks like F15 Eagle ( 4.5 Gen fighter ).
Will it operate like F15 ? that would be the key.
Will it be available for Export to close allies of China ?
Smoke on that haterz!
Nice achievement China .....
In a thread about about J16 , the chinese troll has to bring India
Classic case of India obsession....
that pic is clearly a photoshop
Pakistan needs to stay close to China. I have been saying this for very long time, there is nothing to gain from Europe or US. This is the reason why Gen. Musharraf was very close to China & maintained a very good friendship with our friend China.
new leak photo of j16 with number 1601 (J16 is important. but unfortunately J20 and J31 draw more ppls attention ）
+ official photos of J11B

J-16 scares the **** out of Japan Navy. China is too powerful for Japan to deal with.
J-16s，now being mass-produced， are Su-30MKIs‘ swan song。
