The IRST setup on China's SAC J-11D is sparking a minor discussion on MilTwitter..


I have no idea whether or not its unusual or what.  I'm not one of those guys that examines Chinese/Russian/even allied aircraft in great detail.

At a glance it appears that the forward view is becoming a bit more obscured.  The radome appears to be a bit "beefier" too.

One thing is certain.

China is big into heavyweight fighter aircraft.  That kinda applies to the West too.  The age of the lightweight fighter seems to be taking a least for now.
