I didn't really want to get into a lengthy discussion on the f-16, wanted to focus more on the j-10b and c, as being superior to the f-16. After all, lockheed is still selling the f-16 so they are not entirely done with it yet for the sake of the f-35. For that matter, I wonder how a future j-10 would compete with the f-35 and super hornet with similar avionics, aesa, engine upgrade, cft's, and some internal bays as an upgrade. Probably pretty well. That's not far fetched based on how far the j-10 has already developed.
The 10 is a flying radar target. Combat with an 35 would be lopsided. With an 18, th3 18 is backed up by growlers and AWACS.

Yes, allegedly too close to populated area and the pilot decided to stay ... R.I.P. :(

Otherwise here an image of a J-10C assigned to the 131st Brigade

So, with J-10B test airframe going to appear at Zhuhai Airshow with WS-10 TVC variant, does it tell us anything about likelihood of said engine variant appearing in 1) PLAAF J-10B units? 2) Exported J-10s? or 3) Non-TVC variant of WS10 appearing in service with J10B anywhere?

Has anyone noticed that their smoke tubes have BOTH FRONT AND REAR OUTLETS?

4th batch of J-10C now equipped with WS-10B. But why are the MAWS missing?

4th batch means the J-10B/C total is nearing 200?
