 Beginning of J-11
In the 1970s,Shenyang Aircraft Factoryproposed to design a light fighter  powered by the BritishRolls-Royce Spey 512 engine, but otherwise similar to theMiG-19then in service. Known as the J-11, the project wasabandoned due to difficulty in obtaining the engines…..
Codenamed `Flanker' by NATO, the J-11 [Su-27 / Su-30MKK / Su-30MK2] is a multi-role fighter bomber and air superiority aircraft whichcan also be used in the maritime strike role. The Flanker has anoperational radius of around 1500 km, and is equipped with an inflightrefuelling facility extending their radius by another 500 km. Althoughnormally configured for conventional operations, the J-11 couldprovide China with a high-performance nuclear-capable strike aircraft.
The acquisition of Su-27, after China had attempted for years todevelop the J-10 aircraft with equivalent technology to perform similar functions, demonstrates a lack of confidence in domestic industrialcapabilities.Since China received its first 4th-generation Su-27 fighter in 1992,training, tactics and operational concepts progressed slowly as Chinaintegrated the new technologies and capabilities into the forcestructure. This protracted learning phase has allowed China toprepare for the introduction of larger numbers of 4th-generationaircraft into its inventories. By 2002 new Su-27s and Su-30s hadbeen more rapidly integrated into operational units. Meanwhile, air combat tactics continue to evolve and training became moreadvanced.
Jane's Defense Weekly 
reported on March 31, 2004 that by early2004, China had received some 154 Sukhoi aircraft (this number does not include roughly 100 aircraft built in China), mostly Su-27SKfighters, and that by the end of 2004 roughly 273 Sukhoi fighters willbe in service
Su-27SK Purchases
In 1991 China purchased an initial batch of 24
SU-27sfor about $1 billion which were delivered in late 1992 and based atWuhu Air Base, 250 kilometers west of Shanghai. In May 1995 Chinapurchased a second batch of 24 SU-27 aircraft through Russia's mainstate-run arms exporting company Rosvooruzheniye. These weredelivered in April 1996 and based at Suixi Air Base in SouthernChina. The 48 Su-27-type aircraft include 36 one-seat Su-27SKmanufactured in Komsomolsk-on-Amur and 12 two-seat Su-27UBmanufactured in Irkutsk, worth a total of 1.7 billion dollars.In February 1996 Moscow and Beijing reached a $2.2 billionagreement for Chinese co-production of the Sukhoi Su-27. Under theinitial agreement China would produce up to 200 aircraft [without theright to reexport the jets to third countries] from Russian-madecomponents over three to five years. The total cost of the contract is$1.5 billion, including $650 million for technical documents and $850million for parts, instruments and equipment provided byKomsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Enterprise
Yuriy Gagarin[KnAAPO], which is to deliver around 30 percent of all completingparts for 200 Chinese SU-27SK jets. Russia has licensedcoproduction of Su-27s to the Shenyang Aircraft Company, which canproduce fifteen to twenty per year. In the period 1998-2000 Shenyangplanned to assemble only 15 Su- 27SK fighters of the 200 permittedunder the terms of the contract. The first two aircraft built atShenyang flew at the end of 1998. By 2004, China had only receivedcomponents kits for 95 aircraft, as a contract covering the additional105 kits was still pending.At the end of 1999 it was anticipated that the Irkutsk aviationindustrial association will deliver to China a total of 28 training andcombatant Su-27UB fighters. The delivery would be implemented torepay the state debt, and 8 planes would be delivered to China withinthe year 2000, 10 planes in the year 2001 and 10 planes in the year 2002.
