Description: The Shenyang Aircraft Corporation two-seat F-16 fighter bomber is a derivative of the J-11 (Chinese version of the Russian Su-30MK) equipped with a new radome homing an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar. Besides, the F-16 features pilot's helmet-mounted display systems (HMDS), stealth characteristics with lower radar cross section (RCS) than the J-11 fighter bomber and multi-purpose capabilities to perform both air defense and air strikes against targets on the ground and at sea. The J-16 features a stealth coating. The aircraft is fully compatible with the latest Chinese strike weapons including both guided missiles and smart bombs. It is even possible that the F-16 will be able to deliver space weapons. The People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) may deploy the new aircraft in the 2014-2015 timeframe complementing the current fleet of Su-30MKK and Su-30MK2 fighter jets.
