JH-7A

Notes: This aircraft was at first rejected by the Chinese military in favor of the Su-27. Its low-thrust engines do not lend themselves to speed or lifting capability, and weapons load is small for an aircraft of its size. The two wingtip hardpoints may be used only for air-to-air missiles.

Twilight 2000 Notes: With the escalation of hostilities between China and Russia, the supply of Su-27s to China was abruptly cut off. The JH-7A was thus put into high production.
