China has placed additional orders for Russian AL-31-series fighter engines. State arms trade agency Rosoboronexport clinched two big contracts earlier this year. One is for more than 150 AL-31Fs as replacements for earlier engines of same type that power cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Su-27/Su-30MKK/MK2 fighters, that are designated J-11 in China. Engines under this contract will be assembled by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Ufa-based UMPO factory.

The second contract is for more than 120 AL-31FN engines to power newly built Chengdu J-10 fighters. Engines under this contract are already being delivered, from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Moscow-based Salut plant.

Speaking to AIN at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Aviation Expo 2011 in Beijing, Salut general director Vladislav Masalov said that negotiations continue on a second batch of nearly 140 AL-31FNs and that a follow-on contract is expected to be signed in October.

Masalov furcá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r said that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 grand total of Salut-made AL-31 series engines in China “is nearing one thousand units.” To serve cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m, Salut has established partnerships with Limin Corp. and Tyan Li company in Chengdu on deliveries and manufacturing of spare parts for both cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 AL-31F and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 AL-31FN. Russia has also agreed to provide all necessary maintenance and repair documentation to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Chinese partners.

Nothing for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 J-20? I guess Russia doesn't want China's 5th gen fighter fleet to expand too quickly.

The J20 doesnt fly AL-31s.
