Description: The WS-10 is a Chinese-built turbofan engine family intended for fourth generation fighter aircraft and developed using the Russian AL-31 engine as a rough model in the 2000s. The People's Liberation Army (PLA) utilizes the WS-10 engines to power the J-10, J-11, J-16 and J-20 fighter aircraft as well as the carrier-based J-15 fighter jet. The WS-10 engine entered service in 2010.

The WS-10A engine was designed for the J-10 fighter aircraft achieving initial operational capability after 2005 replacing the Russian AL-31FN engine. In early June 2010 it was reported to have been installed on the J-15 carrier-based fighter which is a copy of the Russian Su-33 Flanker-D. The WS-10H refers to the engine variant powering the J-15 carrier-based aircraft. The engine has maximum output of 27,000 pounds of thrust.
