May I ask, where the information is from that they are assigned to the 105th Brigade?

These are KD-20A cruise missiles and the older KD-63B land attack cruise missile.

.... this would mean 16 J-20s now within the 9th Brigade at Wuhu.

According to this post "东空9旅有两个大队已经换装歼20" - "Two brigades of the East Air 9 Brigade have been remodeled for the J-20" - which I would transcribe into "Two daduis within the ETC 9th Air Brigade have been reequipped with the J-20" ...

Is there any update? "Southern theater naval Yongzhou/Lingling is used by PLAN special mission Y-8/Y-9 aircraft. Confirmation is needed whether a Regiment is based or that is is used for detachments only". Lengshuitan, not Lingling.

Again, for the moment I don't know and I'm truly confused. But the same is for the Naval Aviation, where the new H-6Js are also assigned to Independent Bomber Regiments and no longer within regular Naval Air Divisions.

Any idea, which unit this is?

That's the mystery and I must admit, when I saw the first images confirming this new organisation, I thought it would be a faked image. However it seems as if either - and IMO eventually to the Naval Aviation - the Bomber units were reformed from Divisions to Brigades

Externally there is no difference, but there are several reports and rumors and otherwise the number of engines necessary for all known H-6K/N/Js and Y-20As is bigger than the number of delivered D-30KP-2 from Russia.

You mean this one on the left? This is allegedly a "laser guided captive flight training bomb", which simulated only the weight (and as such flight) characteristics of a true LS-500J.

Seems as if they are powered by WS-18, a locally manufactured and improved variant of the D-30KP-2.

Nope ... my fault! 😕 I often use this designation with the letter A to differ it from the two demonstrators, but You are correct, most likely it is still simply J-20. This is the same aircraft
