The JH-7 is a fighter-bomber produced from 1988 to 2017, it is indeed a rather modern plane as it is still in service in the PLAAF today as the JH7-AII.The program started in 1983 after being authorized by Deng Xiaoping , looking for a fighter-bomber that could replace the H-5 and the Q-5.

Why I would like to see this plane in WT


 

Spoiler

 

China is currently a nation that is very forgettable in the game, it needs any indigenous design it can get , especially at top tier to make players want to actually grind the tree.The JH-7 will offer a pretty different gameplay from the J-7, being rather heavy in comparison and less maneuverable, but having a  powerful radar ,strong missiles ( PL-5 is the most adequate choice for the game ) in good numbers ( the plane can be equipped with a lot of missiles ) unlike with the J-7, has an acceleration that is roughly the same as  the FGR2 ( same engine (WS9 is a chinese license built Rolls Royce Spey engine) and almost same weight ).The plane can also carry anti-ship missiles , ECMs , anti-radiation missiles, air to surface missile which makes it future-proof and also gives it potential as great CAS for Chinese ground forces at top tier as well.

I would also like to add that as of now March 2020 this  would be the perfect plane to add to China and get people to play it as it carries countermeasures and missiles comparable to what is going on in top tier jets with the F4-E and Mig 21 SMT*

*do not get fooled by the 30g number , the tracking rate on the PL-5 will make it balanced

PL-5 Missiles suggestion from John_Jiang:

Open for Discussion.:salute:

 

I edited the poll to comply with the guidelines. All polls must have a "No" vote in each question as the polling system requires users to vote in each question rather than just one.

 

Quote

Create polls that don't include a "Negative" or "No" answer

While polls offer a good and simple way for individuals to quickly express their stance on a subject, without having to elaborate it in detail, there are ways to manipulate polls to always show a desired result. To avoid having an unfair voting system, make sure to always include a negative option to a question so that it's fair and unbiased. If this requirements isn't met, the thread author will be notified and the poll will be altered to provide a fair voting system.

i would like to see it at high rank 7 but IMO the br in the poll are way to low

Why ? It's a mach ~1.6 jet that will be armed with PL-5s 

There's no chance PL-12 ( SD-10 ) would be in the game on that thing , nor PL-8 because it's comparable to an Aim-9L and all aspect , same with PL-9

because speed isn't revelant in modern age for the most part since it's weapons dictate it's capability in game , that's like putting the gen2 harrier at 9.7 "because they are subsonic" but can carry AIM-9L and amraam ,it's coming one day that's for sure but not now .

Gaijin has confirmed last year "gen 4 and even newer one" wich most probably is gen 4.5 , so yes amraam are coming , yes phoenix are coming and yes PL-12 are coming , not rignt now , not this year and most probaly not in 2022 , so for people like me , i would like a more polish poll

all aspect IR missiles are coming too , maybe even this year since we did see more and more jets with flares this year

And still it doesn't make this aircraft any better than what we currently have 

It being more modern doesn't do anything if the loadout and performance it is added with is aligned with what we have in the game currently

If we follow that logic then we shouldn't have any of the aircraft that carried AIM-9Ls historically  

You could add it now with just PL-5s and it would be a perfect fit , not too strong , SARH-less , but a decent addition to a TT that is missing jets you actually WANT to play

 

Waiting 2-3 years so that it can come with SD-10s and such is just bad since it will only face aircraft that are very superior to it 

 

We have a BR bracket where this thing can perform and actually bring something to a nation that is impaired , there is a loadout that fits,  why not add it ?

+1. This addition will give Chinese top tier a good CAS aircraft it really needs. The current top tier it doesn't have a good full lineup and good support planes.
