Description: The J-15 is a Chinese twin-engine all-weather carrier-based fighter manufactured by the
Shenyang Aircraft Corporation in cooperation with the 601 Institute for the Chinese PLAN aircraft
carriers. In China the J-15 is known as the Flying Shark with a NATO designation of Flanker-X2.
The J-15 has the same basic airframe design as the Su-33. When the jet entered service in 2015
it was compared to the U.S. Navy’s two-seat FA-18 Super Hornet fighter. In 2018 it was
announced the J-15 would stop production for the J-15B.

The aircraft carrier Liaoning was originally being built as the aircraft cruiser Riga but was
renamed Varyag in 1990. When the Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991 all work stopped on the
bare bones ship and it was sold by Ukraine to China in 1998. The now named Liaoning, it was
commissioned in 2012 and combat ready in 2016. In December 2015 the J-15 “Flying Shark” 116

six J-15’s assigned to the carrier.
