Old version of China’s JH-7A fighter/bomber

Russian media says China sends its new version of JH-7A fighter/bomber to take part in the Aviadarts competition in Russia’s International Army Games.

It says that China has installed the radar, targeting navigation guide pod and Russia-made radio reconnaissance pod on the new version of JH-7A. JH-7A’s new avionics system enables it to carry a wider range of weapons. The fighter/bomber is similar to Russian Su-24 frontline static bomber but has 11 weapon cradles, 3 more than Su-24.
