Looks like a WS-13. It doesn't have those blue-ish streaks of colour that the RD-93 has. But the photo quality is terrible so I can't really tell.

Friendly cockpit layout & operating system'

The ability to operate the radar in every manner, employ all types of weapon system, fly the aircraft & communicate with other aircrafts without ever taking your hands off of the Throttle & Stick is quite amazing.

The similarity in function and utility should be discussed---but then most of the " so called ESTEEMED posters " know diddley about that either.
