One variation I have been considering is a wing with reduced leading edge sweep, much like the later J-7 wings, but with the trailing edge remaining straight, and giving enough chord at the wing tips to mount short-range AAM's.  Combine this with an updated Ye-8 or J-7FS for a different look.

Beautiful Ye-8 variants!  If it gets a gun or guns, I can see single-barreled cannon on either side of the intake.  Alternatively, a twin-barreled Gsh-23, as carried on late-model MiG-21s located just aft of the nose gear and far enough down that the projectiles don't hit structure would work.

Other than the canopy and different bumps and scoops there aren't many external differences from the earlier MiG-21s
