Some pictures from cjdby.net of China's AL-31F class turbofan, on display at the China Aviation Museum.

If its displayed the right way up, then its a Su-27 version (top mounted accessories).

Afterburner arrangement looks rather similar to the AL-31F...

Yepp ... but anyway very much different !

IMO it's the one, that was tested on the J-11/WS-10-testbed and most important it's again different to the WS-10A shown at the Zhuhai airshow last year.

Agrred ... actually I really don't understand the whole WS-10 / WS-10A or what ever other designation may be used. Anyway it seems, as if really a complete redesign has been done and that this WS-10 looks much like a development of the WS-6.

I think I have to look again ...
