J-15 Flying Shark

J-15 is the first generation of Chinese shipborne fighter aircraft being developed by both 601 Institute and SAC for PLAN's first aircraft carrier. In the beginning there were rumors claiming that J-15 was a new semi-stealth design based on a similar but more advanced stealth design developed earlier by SAC/601 Institute to compete for the J-14 project (see below), but this design turned out to be a follow-on design. In order to save time and cut cost, the aircraft is now believed to be based on Russian Su-33 in terms of structural configuration and flight control system as well as domestic J-11B (see above) in terms of radar and weapon systems. Similar to Su-33, J-15 features folding wings, a pair of small canard foreplanes to improve its low speed handling and shortened tailcone to avoid tail-scrape during high AoA landing. Some key shipborne aircraft technologies such as landing/navigational systems are believed to have been obtained from Russia and Ukraine. One Su-33 prototype (T-10K-3) was acquired from Ukraine around 2001 and has been studied extensively. J-15 is believed to share many common components with J-11B, such as a similar radar, the same glass cockpit as well as the improved WS-10 turbofan engine. It can also fire a variety of Chinese designed weapons, including PL-8, PL-12 AAMs and YJ-83K AShM.
Overall J-15 is believed to be in the same class of American F/A-18C. The first prototype has been undergoing assembly at SAC since 2008. J-15 is expected first to be stationed onboard the Varyag aircraft carrier currently being fitted in Dalian. The latest news suggested that the first prototype made its maiden flight on August 31, 2009, powered initially by Russian AL-31F turbofan engines

Discuss about the Pakistani Air Force capability, induction of fighters, changes in air force, comparison with other air forces of the world.
Again. i dont understand what is the purpose of running a thread which is not even remotely related to PAF.

sory , dear!
maybe its not in your list, i mean CHINA & CHINESE fighter aircrafts, the fact is that , there is nothing wrong , running this thread, because PAF , surly find that intersting scince , PAF is very much dependent on chinese fighter ACs.

2nd , best thing is that, its nearly a F-18A, after looking it closly , we had a better partner, to your FC-20 , NOW!:cheers:;):pakistan:
I GUSS, NOW WE DONT NEED TO EVEN THINK ABOUT, RAFEALE!

Its great News and it would be a true FC-20 partner if you are looking for one. Since the air-frame is excessively similar, the same degree of maneuverability would be possible and learning curve for the pilots will be considerably shorter. But I wonder how is it more stealthier than J-10 when same air-frame is in use?

Congratulations China, every day I have a new reason to be happy for you. Great going. :china::china:
