The first batch of of J-10 was using Russian engines.  Now all those Russian engines are used up.  PLA airforce is hoping to used to domestic engine WS10A but the it has many problems and performance is not satisforactory.   Now, China has to renegotitate with Russain to buy additional 300 jet engine.   

PLA airforce is very angry at the Shenyang Liming the maker of WS-10A domestic engine. It delay all kinds of projects because of the bad performance of it domestic engine.

So, bascially J-10 and J-11B production stopped because of waiting to buy additional Russian engine. I am sure Russian will try to overcharge on that knowing China is desperate for those engine.


PLa airforce determine and decide to give the next round of new engine development to Xian.
No more future work for shenyang Liming.

   Bascially, Shenyang Liming failure of production quality domestic engine has put shame on the industry and PLA airforce.

it doesnt put any shame on the PLA airforce.  It just limits what planes they can use for the time being.  
It shames the Chinese aircraft manufacturing sector, or rather is just confirms what everyone knew.  China is still a ways away from being able to produce high end products like aircraft engines.  They are not the same things as cheap cars and DVD players and require better engineers and more development time as such.

well, it's a shame, because before open up in 1980, CHina knows its military industry is backward. It can't make its jet engine.

Now after 30 yrs later, after all those reform, it still cannot make its high performance engine. It put the country to shame.

It's not like they try to do it within 10 yrs.    They had over 30 yrs and more.

It also has alot of stratgic implication, becau  eof lacking good engines, China cannot export large number of FC-1 and J-10 fighters to Pakistan to counter India, therefore making India too cocky as we have seen today.

Even russian aircraft engines are not great and they have been working on it for nearly a century.  Even technically advanced france has been slipping behind.  Its hard to get everything out of an aircraft engine.  One of the reasons they typically costs over 33% of a planes cost.

Russian industry cannot compare to China  as China has the type of scale and manpower, and financial means.

30 yrs to develope a high quality engine should be doable.

This area has to most strategic implication, if China able to surpass Russian aerospace, Russia will nothing ahead of China, nothing else.

The day China surpass Russian areospace, will be the date Russia willing to be the little brother to China.
Russia will be willing to be secondary role player next to CHina.

This means Russia will open up central asia, Siberia for Chinese immigration.
