The People’s Liberation Army Air Force, or PLAAF, and the People’s Liberation Army Navy, or PLAN, have both received Su-30MKK and Su-30MK2 aircraft.

Other new aircraft types will be unveiled at this year’s exhibition, which has been postponed from its planned November 2020 date owing to the epidemic, according to a Chinese defense ministry official.

The WZ-7 jet-powered high altitude unmanned aircraft, as well as China’s J-20 stealth fighter, will be among the other debutants.
