Xi'an JH-7, History, Performance & Discussion

I think they are trying to say,no matter what sources you bring to us we are still not going to add Kh 29.

If anything, it could be a tease that they are coming. They are officially acknowledged by the devs, but like Smin said, no ETA on when they are coming

Let’s hope that’s the case

how are you avoiding the swarms of f14b f16c and mig29s all ready to murk you

Really just depends on the match, and if my teammates(Pantsir players) are actually providing some decent SPAA cover or not. Plus you have all the tools too also kill an F-16 if they arnt paying attention. The Pythons are great for sneak attacks

if an f16c spawns in they will notice you on radar immediately and will easily kill you. it so happens f16c is not only the best cas jet its also the best fighter next to f16a. If you fly high a massive trail gives you away, if you’re low. The unrealistic lack of hmd makes enemy cas hunting much more difficult compared to j8f. I cant find any redeeming qualities for the jh7a. I would pick mig27k over this thing any day

Putting aside the Kh-29’s(which the JH-7 might get anyways) what benefit does the Mig-27K offer? Your RWR is crap so you won’t even know when your getting locked half the time, or from where or what. At best, you only get 4 guided missles and 4 guided bombs, all of which only have a max tracking range of 7km and under, and your laser guided bombers don’t even have internal navigation. And then take into account that you have no thermals, less FOV in your camera(it can’t really look left or right while flying side on too a target) and very limiting air too air missles, which also compete with your ground ordinance for pylon space. I understand that the JH-7A isn’t as good as it could be, but let’s not be dramatic, this is still a decent plane.

You can’t find any redeeming qualities? This plane is amazing.

Now it’s modes unique only For marinfluger ( F6F-5N) and su-39

Im hoping that with the new upcoming update, we will either get a AGM CAS plane for China with the J-10, or we will finally get the Kh-29’s for the JH-7A. Hopefully we might hear something sooner than later tho

eh i doubt china will get a new plane with the next update

according to a reddit “leak”, which we know are not very credible but anyway, china gets the JH-7A but with the Kh-29T

There is no point to give China a new JH-7A just to have Kh-29T unless they are also adding PL11/PL-12 to it too.

They could upgrade JH-7A with better ordnance and give Q-5L it’s CM’s…

In the case of JH-7A, not until stand-off missiles and anti-ship missiles are a thing in the game. Realistically they can add Kh29T and GJ250/100 but the game is not ready for other ordnance yet.

Can you share this leak? Most leaks I’ve seen(regardless of how legit they are) all seem to point towards the J-10
