Came across an image on the Chinese internet of what appearsto be the Chengdu J-10B. Remarkablythe radome is open, showing what could well be an active electronically scannedarray (AESA) radar. Though the developmental J-20 has received all theattention this year, it is the J-10A and J-10B that will be the mainstay of thePLAAF in the coming decades – and an effective AESA radar for the B version hasthe potential to be a significant force multiplier.
