Fascinating pictures QuantumFX, especially the last one that features the J-10 with a TVC nozzle.  That is the first time that I have seen the J-10 with TVC nozzle fitted.

It seems that one is only a mock-up. J-10B TVC demonstrator made its public debut during the 2018 Zhuhai airshow- Link

Here some old photos of the actual nozzle

Possible sighting of a newly upgraded J-11B (J-11BG?), with a new AESA radar.

It is an Anti-ship Ballistic Missile.  It is an air-launched version of the DF-21D with an estimated range of 3000 km.
