The J16D is an example of the best use of the Su-27 derived platform where its large size and powerful engines provide the aerial persistence and staying power to provide an effective platform which is requirement for EW based platforms.

For this EW use case, its large size is an advantage as it can host large engines that can generate a lot of electrical power.

Well said my friend :tup:

That's why China choose a Heavy Fighter like J-16 for their EW Fighters Platform. Not medium fighter like F-18 US

The entire F/A-18 platform including EA-18G Growler have two engines.


"The Growler is powered by two F414-GE-400 afterburning turbofan engines with 44,000lbs thrust supplied by General Electric. A titanium engine firewall is incorporated into the aircraft structure. The engines are rated to supply 62kN or 98kN with afterburn."
