I think China should modify and upgrade existing JH-7A fleet into EW/SEAD specialist platform for export. Leave the strike role to J-16.

Nobody will purchase a platform based on a Cold War-era airframe, with all of its limitations. Those who cannot afford high-end EW aircraft such as the Growler will settle for smaller platforms like a notional EW JF-17, not an obsolete JH-7.

JH-17 doesn't have the payload capability as JH-7, and you don't need massive maneuverability or high performance platform for EW aircraft. US used EA-6B/EF-111 while Soviets used Su-24MR.

If the platform is obsolete, then why JH-7B is born? they would stop the program long time ago and chose another platform instead.

There is no JH-7B! At least not active ... the JH-7B was once in development but as it seems is long dead.

J-16 is better than JH-7B in all dimensions. Better retire all JH-7 when the service life expires

The future bomber will be flying wing design, like B-2 anyway.
