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-10G engine variant has been designed to power the J-20 heavyweight stealth aircraft operated by the People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) beginning in 2017. The WS-10G development is the direct result of the setbacks experienced by China during the WS-15 engine development which was originally intended to power the J-20. The WS-10G features Thrust Vectoring Control (TVC) and a maximum takeoff thrust of 34,000 to 35,000 pounds.
