Images show PLANAF J-15s armed with KD-88 and YJ-91 missiles

Images have emerged in Chinese state-owned media showing at least two People’s Liberation Army Navy Air Force (PLANAF) J-15 fighters equipped with what appear to be the KD-88 air-to-surface missile and either the YJ-91 anti-radiation or YJ-91A anti-ship-missile: an indication that China has enhanced the multirole capabilities of this carrier-borne fighter.

CCTV broadcast images in early November showing at least two PLANAF J-15 carrier-borne fighters at Huangdicun Airbase armed with what appear to be the KD-88 (fitted onto the aircraft in foreground) and YJ-91 missiles (fitted onto the aircraft to the right).

The images, which were broadcast in early November by China Central Television (CCTV), show the J-15s on the ground at the PLANAF’s Huangdicun Airbase, although it is unclear when the images were taken.
