Made in China: all Modern Chinese fighter jets in one photo

Jan 31 2014 - 6 Comments

One image shows some of the most famous China’s Air Force combat planes.

Even if some types are missing, the photograph is still much interesting. Indeed, if you wondered how the size of a J-10 compared to that of a J-8II, this photographs gives a hint.

BTW, since the Chinese site where the image was posted focuses on scale models, photoshop compositions etc., we can’t be sure the image whether the photo is genuine or it simply depicts a diorama.

Anyway, from left to right you can ID: Shenyang J-11, Chengdu J-10, Shenyang J-8II, Shenyang J-8, Chengdu J-7, Shenyang J-6, Shenyang JJ-2. Front row: Xian JH-7A, Nanchang A5.

If you are interested in Chinese aircraft, Modern Chinese Warplanes written by Andreas Rupprecht and Tom Cooper, and published by Harpia, is the book for you.

The paperback volume, sporting 256 pages, 274 color photos, 12 maps and 60 color drawings, accurately portrays China’s current military planes, their weapons, their markings and serial number systems, as well as the order of battle of both the People’s Liberation Army Air Force and Navy Air Force: the ideal starting point if you want to study Beijing’s air power.

    Cool picture. Would have been nice to get their stealth efforts in there as well.

    The size difference between an Su-27 and Mig-15 is striking.

    Yeah this is definitely a model but still pretty awesome.

    Good to see the A-5 Fantan still going strong :) Kills an many of its own pilots as the enemies.

    Having spent many years building them, I say these are plastic scale models. The way the paint looks is the most obvious giveaway.

    Come on, everybody can see these are scale models. Look at the ‘grass’, the paint of the a/c, the paint of the concrete….
