Perhaps the expected sale of F-16V to Taiwan prompted China to focus on J-20 which outmatches F-16V. J-10C is roughly on par with F-16V.

Unlikely and again, it seems not that production has suspended, but deliveries!
I dont think china will spend more time on J10

It will just work on fifth gen fighter

USA is way ahead..and USA with it allies are going to put 2000 f35 soon in operations ..chinese will have to look at that

Even japan is ordering a big number
Its possible it will even cap more j10s and simply move to j20 and j35. Though j35 progress has been oddly very slow

Here is a picture of a J-10 C parked at Masroor Airbase,Pakistan.You can see words BANDIT, which is a name of a PAF group.There is also a Pakistani green flag. Which confirm that PAF has unknown number of J-10 C jet fighters.

In case I once again did not notice sarcasm, I already apologise, BUT NO:

This is NOT a "J-10 C parked at Masroor Airbase,Pakistan" It is a more or less basic desk-top model of a J-10C in as yet What if markings and serial numbers. This does NOT "confirm that PAF has unknown number of J-10 C jet fighters"!

Guys ... either you must work on your humour by adding certain emojis so that stupid Germans like me can notice sarcasm or should do some sort of reality check!

China has produced nearly 800 J10ABC. After that, a small amount of J10C may be produced at a low speed to maintain production capacity.
The United States Air Force has only 790 F16s in service.So it is generally believed that the number of J10 will not continue to grow at a high speed.

Follow up on the Chengdu J-10C delivery issues.
1612915877077.png


Recently we revealed that deliveries of the Chengdu J-10C single engine fighter to the People's Liberation Army - Air Force (PLAAF, Chinese Air Force) seem to have been stopped. See the Scramble Magazine news item of 23 January 2021.

With the picture shown today multiple rows of fighters can be seen standing idle at Chengdu/Huangtianba, with all the flight sheds behind stuffed with J-20 fighters preparing for there test flights.

Although some believe that the J-10s are stored whilst waiting until an order for the J-10CEs with Pakistan is signed, a more probable reason could be that the locally developed Shenyang WS-10B engine has not yet been qualified for operational use. In November 2019 the first aircraft of production batch 05 was noted with this engine, but no WS-10B powered aircraft have been seen operational yet.

All operational aircraft noted are still powered by the Russian Saturn AL-31FN engine.

Here an interesting summary of the situation at CAC: According to local spotters there are no longer that many J-10s at CAC and they were said to be delivered already. As such the most likely explanation is, that there was/is a slip in production of one item - eventually the engines - maybe caused due to COVID-related production issues so that this batch of J-10C had been waiting for their engines.


But again, there is no hint that they are for Pakistan and as such why again here a new thread in the PAF section?

One picture is of an air base and the other is just some grass.

I am hopeful that we will hear good news about J-10CE coming to Pakistan. It can be further upgrade/customized with Turkish ASELSAN EW self-protection suite (SPEWS-II), Advance AESA Radar, Electro-optical targeting system (EOTS), long range AAM to match the performance of Rafale.

Maybe modified J-10 with

Yes, that's Chengdu-Huangtianba - home of CAC / 611 - and it shows, that there are no J-10Cs anymore, at least no longer in that huge number.

But again, there is nothing that hint's them to be prepared for Pakistan.

China will never allow PAF J-10C be equipped with Turkish avionics. The most with Turkish targeting pod which wouldn't affect most of the network system.

of course, China will not do for itself, but what if Pakistan wants to do exactly that? Either China will make a better targeting pod or allow Pakistan to integrate that with it. The answer is, both are available for Pakistan all the time. It will bring Turkey and China closer.

China will eventually allow Pakistan to integrated non- Chinese sub-systems from Turkey.
