Yeah that's really stealth right there Mars Camo?
http://china-defense.blogspot.com/it is the PLAAF's "August 1" Aerobatic Flight Team's new bird practicing for the upcoming Oct 1st National Day Parade. Why the bright red color scheme? Well, consider the parade will be directed by Zhang Yimou, it should not be a surprise. Just add a dragon (make sure it is painted yellow) on the fuselage and you are good to go.
If you look closely it does resemble the S-400 (the missile cannisters and the BAZ trucks)
China is already copying the S-400? Wow, they are quick!
god my eye...I have no idea whats pohotoshop and whats not anymore. Back in my day we when we posted photos they were the actual photos...
The 01 prototype of the new J-10B was unveiled in March 2009, 3 months after its maiden flight in December 2008. This much improved variant features a DSI/bump engine inlet which not only cuts weight but also reduces RCS, after a similar design was first tested onboard FC-1/JF-17. The aircraft also features a J-11B style IRST/LR and a wide-angle holographic HUD. IRST enables passive detection of enemy aircraft, making J-10B more stealthy in combat. Its nose appears flatter too, similar to that of American F-16, and radar is thought to be PESA (of Russian origin?), the first of such type ever being developed for a Chinese fighter aircraft, giving J-10B a stronger multi-target engagement and ECCM capability. Two underwing inner pylons are strengthened for the heavier ASMs or LGBs. The tip of vertical tailfin was redesigned as well, featuring a large fairing containing communication and ECM antennas, which resembles that of French Mirage 2000. A rear facing MAWS sensor can be seen underneath the parachute boom. A similar system was tested onboard FC-1/JF-17 as well. All these improvements suggest that J-10B is equipped with a new generation of integrated electronic system, ranging from radar to EW system. The aircraft thus serves likely as a testbed for various advanced avionics onboard the 4th generation J-14 (see below). Its mission may be changed from air-superiority to multi-purpose, such as AG. In addition, the aircarft is expected to be powered by an indigenous WS-10A turbofan. Overall J-10B is thought to be comparable to American F-16E/Block 60.
