Nanchang Q-5J twin-seater trainer of the People's Liberation Army Air Force 82nd Attack Regiment, 28th Attack Division based at Hangzhou-Jianqiao in Zhejiang Province. The type has replaced the JJ-6 (Chinese-built twin-seat MiG-19) that had been in service for more than 30 years. In addition to a new fleet of "modern" fighters, the PLAAF is also procuring more specialized training assets - a trend that is ignored by many of the PLA watchers out there.
