Deliveries have stopped.
Two things are happening. Indigenous avionics and custom built EW systems are being trialed and fine tuned.
Second, Russian engines are being trialed as well.
Is this about the J-15s?
20 planes delivered, right?
Are these the new B variants?

Yes, the newer and much improved J-15 multirole variant has been given the "B" designation.
Better AESA, Improved EW Suite, Increased Weapons Loadout, and IPE Powerplants.
There is also a Tandem Seater Growler/Trainer version called J-15D.

J10 pretty much out of cover as retired AM also said beginning of next Yr manufacturing started.
For vipers everyone is tight lip I want more C130 and some C17s for heavy lift @Khafee can shed light better
C17's are out of production, so out of question.

Vipers on track

Sir what’s wrong with chinese EW system on J-15D? Or do we have a better one at home?
Secondely if Russian engines are being trialed, that mean WS-10c didn’t satisfy PAF? Then what about J-10 engine?

Obviously you want a tailor made system, and not an identical one in service elsewhere.
