Oh well ... I would LOVE to see some results of this exercise against J-10C in the same way we've seen the results of the earlier one against Su-27SK and J-11s. :smitten:
There is nothing that Tailand airforce can be pround of and share with the media, after J-10 is sent for the training exercise.

Thailand may have trying to push for J-10 purchase and they will push for the result to be published. Jas-39 is not a good plane. A lot of countries has lost interest in this plane. The room for upgrade is limited. Just like LCA.

J-10 is a medium weight fighter jet. A single engine thrust is almost equivalent to 2 F404 thrust. The room for improvement is greater.

But eventually in return, there is something the PLAAF could be proud of?

Yes, given the increasing Sino-Thai cooperation and acquisition of Chinese systems by the Thai Armed Forces I see a J-10C purchase since some time on the horizon ... in fact after Pakistan, Thailand was and still by best bet for the next export customer.

There are something beyond weapon export.

Yes for sure, good political relations and trade is far more important, but since I'm very much fond for the J-10C I wish for a new export customer and Thailand is IMO a prime candidate.

So China send J-10C for the first time this year?

I didn't realized that RTAF also has F-16 in their inventory.

Btw, why there is no Chinese side video for FS 2022?

China and Thailand have always had close diplomatic and military relations.
