In continuing with the Israeli-involved theme of the Kfir and the Lavi, put the J-10 into service with any Latin American nation that flew the Kfir.

My vote is Equador.

There was an article in Popular Mechanics back in the 90s about the Rockwell X-31.  There was a bit of speculative fiction at the beginning about Navy F-24s using the X-31's thrust-vectoring.  The first time I saw the Trumpeter J-10 kit, that's all I could think about.  The J-10 is a bit bigger than the X-31, but that's just what you'd expect from a matured design, right.  I'm thinking Navy VFA markings over low-vis grays, or maybe a CONA retro scheme.

Oooh, that's nice!  8) Jolly good work, ysi!  :smiley: The J-10's slightly hunchbacked look works really well with this.

Chengdu once considered using the WP-15 turbojet, which is a locally-refitted Tumansky R-29-300 engine, on J-10 prototypes.

'Just figured that this seems like some sort of a parallel to the F-16/79......

Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

On the basis Israel sold warplanes to Argentina and they need a replacement for their Scooters - well just a thought.
