Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series HA6409
Shenyang J-15 Flying Shark Diecast Model
PLANAF, #70, Carrier Shandong, 2020

Limited Edition

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Shenyang J-15 Flying Shark   12"   8"

The J-15 is a carrier-based fighter developed by the Shenyang Aircraft Corporation after China aquired an unfinished Su-33 prototype from Ukraine sometime in 2001. While the J-15 appears to be structurally based on the Su-33, the indigenous fighter features Chinese technologies as well as avionics from the J-11B program.

The Shandong was commissioned in December 2019 and is the first carrier completely built in China. It will join the carrier Liaoning but will be equipped with 44 J-15 aircraft, 8 more than the Liaoning. There are plans to build several more carriers over the next decade.

Shenyang J-15 Flying Shark

Designed by the Soviet Union to challenge the superiority of fourth generation US fighters such as the F-15 Eagle, the Su-27 was first flown on May 20, 1977. This one seat Mach-2 fighter had the Soviet Union's first operational fly-by-wire system. The aircraft is very large compared to the MiG-29, its closest Soviet counterpart, but it is built with a high percentage of titanium, which helps minimize its weight. It is exceptionally agile and is perhaps most famous for its "Cobra" maneuver, which is a short, sustained level flight at a 120 degree angle of attack, often performed at air shows.
