Chinese Air-To-Air missiles, History, Performance & Discussion

Many Chinese jets did carry PL-9s but not as their official loadout. I believe it was just tested on them.

PL-4 on J-7? or is this PL11?

this site calls it PL-11
although they both seem to share the same shape and looks

PLAAF use PL9C, too
its one of the export trun to self use weapon as same as ZTZ96

I’m more interested on the aircraft. It looks a lot like J-7. J-7 with radar missiles would be interesting

Pakistan and bangladeshes j7s did have SARH missiles iirc


It could be one of these early J-8s. They kinda have round airframe like the J-7s.

ourJ-7s did have actual fire control radar though.
lemme search it up again

every modern J-7s had one. But none of the J-7s ever used any radar missiles.
Only the J-7s that has PL-9C and maybe PL-8B used radar slaving for the missiles. Apart from that J-7s never used any radar missiles.

hmm, sadly it seems ur right, but most of them did have HMS though so thats a plus at least

Technically ARH missiles should work on J-7s. But it would have to depend on the missiles own radar. Fire it in a general direction and pray that it hits something.

yeah but i dont think gaijin would ever consider those… will just have to play like a better J-7E with HMS and 4 x 30G IR missiles

It depends on how you define J-7, FTC-2000G and JF-17, can be some kind of super J-7

Definitely no, there’s only one dorsal fin on the other photo, also it doesn’t look rounded like on the j-7 so it could still be a J-8B or newer

PL-12s with 30g… is that accurate on the dev stream?

MB just checked it has 38Gs

I think I’ve found a few more pictures of how the PL-5B should look like in game, very similar to the R-13M or naval AIM-9


And as a bonus: J-8F mounting PL-5C, those would speed up the stock grind
