Chinese Air Force (PLAAF) News & Discussions


As it seems another hint, the PLAN NA is transferring its or at least some of its assets to the PLAAF: This image allegedly from a NTC JH-7A brigade clearly shows a PLAN NA aircraft.

So the question is, ... are they just transferring aircraft and as such does the PLAN "empty" its units in order to later re-equip them with carrier aircraft and in PLAAF service they are assigned to already existing units to raise the numbers, or is it even a complete transfer of units and eventually even its bases?
Is this a new unmanned jet project? Is it a previously declassified system or something new? @siegecrossbow @Deino
The things it carries under the wing also have an interesting geometry and I wonder if they can be air-dropped drones.

BEIJING, July 19 (Xinhua) -- A record number of Chinese air force cadets have been recruited this year and competence levels have reached new heights, the air force recruitment department said on Wednesday.

The proportion of cadets that met the physical standard for fighter pilots increased notably, and 95 percent of cadets have good aircraft flying potential, the department said.

The air force has attributed its recruitment progress to extensive publicity, refined selection and assessment systems, and cooperation with elite civilian universities.

To boost their sense of pride, the new cadets will be flown from five cities across the country to the Aviation University of the Air Force in Changchun, northeast China's Jilin Province, aboard Y-20 transport aircraft on Wednesday and Thursday.
