Did it is a connection between Ye-152 and the Chinese J-8I?
You're right.I've seen mention that Ye-152 and early J-8 were related even before the Internet existed - in a 1987 magasine (I was 5 and already an aviation buff)
So asking the question - where they related, and how did the Chinese got their hands on such a relatively advanced prototype, from the Soviets ?
I remember an old Aerospazio Mese (ASM) number, dated back 1985, in which there was an article by Nico Sgarlato (@Nico in SPF) about the J-8I "Finback" development and possible connection with the Ye-150 "Flipper" prototype.
