I was hunting for something new and must admit it's difficult to really pick out anything.   I even look at pictures of other J-10s but can't really pick up on anything.  I was hoping somebody here might notice or know something more on the topic.  Like the webmaster said it looks like a good spot for a datalink antenna to go.

I found a close up to what that thing is but still not sure.

Correct me, but this place would be the best for air refueling. Why would they put there something like an antena, and not in the tail . After all i see a rectangular opening which seems that it is there for other reasons.

It is dangerously close to the canopy for aerial refueling. Anyway, China uses probe-and-drogue, not the boom. I believe the only tankers they have are Badgers with wing pods.

Are you sure that close-up is one from a J-10? Because it doesn't look the same, look at the bulp-up canopy of the J-10. This looks more like that L-15, you posted some pics of in the Yak-130 thread.

I stick with the datalink, the Raptor has one in the same spot. It's close to the cockpit, so avionics wise it makes sense. Not sure if it is also a satellite link though.
