J-11 Specification

The J-11A was never equipped with the PL-12. At a later stage, it can carry R-77 series missiles. But in theory, the J-11A should also be able to carry Chinese missiles including PL-12 and PL-8. The PL-12 has the same guidance module as the R-77, and likely has a similar engine (given the striking similarity in size between the two). It may be easier to launch the PL-12 by deceiving the fire control system.
At least, China has launched these missiles on the Su-30 of the naval aviation.

PL-8B uses a liquid nitrogen-cooled dual-band seeker, similar to the rose line used by R-73, and has basic anti-interference capabilities.
