- I have other ideas(Comment given)
To this day, the J8F still does not have the corresponding BVR capability. I believe that adding PL11 and its modifications to the game as a mid range air to air mount for the J8F is appropriate.
Although all three versions of PL-11 have slight performance improvements, they are still essentially an AIM-7E-2, with performance not exceeding that of AIM-7F/M. Therefore, I believe that adding PL-11 and its modifications to the game as an air mount for J8F is quite suitable.Moreover, the current J8F is one of the few top tier aircraft in the game that does not have semi-active radar missiles, which is unreasonable in terms of history and gameplay. Other top tier aircraft that do not have semi-active radar missiles have outstanding performance in some fields.
For example, the Hammer 2000 is better than ground attacks, while the F16A (F16 BLOCK10) has one of the most powerful body performance in the game. So I think my requirements are reasonable, and I also hope to see PL-11 and its modifications added to the game as soon as possible.

《Chinese Aircraft: China’s Aviation Industry Since 1951/Chinese Air Power Yefim Gordon》:
P85: The j8f radar is 1473 radar evidence, and the 1492 radar can mount PL11 evidence on j8h (successful PL11 shooting in 2002)
P83/88: j8c can be mounted with PL11, indicating that the 1471 radar can guide (below the figure), while the 1473 radar is improved based on the 1471 radar
P90: In the j8 family diagram, it is proven that models after j82m can still guide r27r1 even if they cannot guide the PL11
P97-98: Both the j10 and j8f radars are JL10A(1473) radars, and there is evidence of PL11 in the JL10A(1473) radar armament
Prove that jl10 is being upgraded to jl10a in the plan, where jl10a is the model used for jh7/j8f/j10a, and jl10 is being abandoned. And in the future, the jl10/jl10a has added the function of guiding Aspad missiles(PL11), among which the jl10a can be compatible with PL12 missiles
The article explains that the j8f is equipped with the jl10a or 1473a radar and has the ability to transmit pl11/11a. And the 1492 radar of j8h also has the ability to transmit PL11/11a

In the model introduction, the 1492 radar of the j8h can guide the PL11, and the jl10 radar or 1473 radar is equipped on the j8f.
It is mentioned in the article that PL11a has a radio command receiver, so it can accept j8f radar guidance signals
The PL11 paragraph in the article clearly states that there were still j8f that had PL11 installed before 2006 due to insufficient production of PL12
The article explains that the j8f is equipped with the jl10a or 1473a radar and has the ability to transmit pl11/11a. And the 1492 radar of J8h also has the ability to transmit PL11a.
