Thats a good looking machine. I wonder, is the engine in it any good? What sort of thrust to weight ratio does it have? Why hasn't it been exported?

Does anybody know the training rates of the Chinese airforce or air arm? If they are up to western standards they are definitely a force not to laugh at. Do they operate all aircraft as front line squadrons or are they making a 2 or 3 tier system. Tier one: best jets, lots of training, best pilots etc, while the 2nd tier is not so much training, older aircraft with older weapons.
