Images released on 21 February in an announcement by the Shenyang Aircraft Company (SAC), a subsidiary of the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), indicate that the manufacturer has resumed production of its carrier-borne J-15 multirole fighter aircraft.
2月21日,中国航空工业集团公司(AVIC)子公司沈阳飞机公司(SAC)公告的图片显示,该制造商已恢复生产其舰载J-15多用途战斗机。
 
The images, the publication of which comes about three months after the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) commissioned its second aircraft carrier, Shandong , show at least one J-15 painted in green primer - suggesting that the aircraft is part of a new batch - and technicians working on the platform at what appears to be a factory.
这些图片大约在中国人民解放军海军的第二艘航空母舰“山东”号正式命名三个月后发布,显示至少一架涂有绿色底漆的J-15-表明该飞机是新批次的一部分-以及似乎是工厂平台上工作的技术人员。
 
Although the SAC announcement does not specifically mention the J-15, the aircraft type can be identified by its shape and canards. The images also feature a short text, stating, among other things, "full resumption of production".
尽管SAC公告中没有特别提及J-15,但可以通过飞机的形状和鸭翼来识别飞机类型。这些图片还带有一个简短的文本,其中包括“完全恢复生产”。
 
It is unclear, however, when the images were taken and whether the new J-15s will be different in any way from the ones currently in service with the PLAN on the service's first aircraft carrier, Liaoning .
但是,目前尚不清楚何时拍摄图像,以及新的J-15飞机是否会与PLAN第一艘航空母舰“辽宁”号上服役的有所不同。
 
That said, the technicians are wearing surgical masks presumably as protection against the Covid-19 coronavirus, indicating the images were taken relatively recently.
话虽如此,技术人员大概戴着外科口罩是为了防止Covid-19冠状病毒,表明这些图片是最近才拍摄的。
 
Since 2012 the J-15, which is a Sukhoi Su-33 derivative, has been the PLAN's sole fixed-wing carrier-borne aircraft. Only 24 of these aircraft had been delivered to the PLAN in two batches before production was apparently halted in mid-2017.
自2012年以来,苏霍伊Su-33的衍生品J-15战斗机一直是PLAN唯一的固定翼舰载机。这些飞机中只有24架分两批交付给了PLAN,然后在2017年中旬停产。
 
At least two J-15s have so far been lost and two more have been damaged, meaning that fewer than 20 of these aircraft are believed to currently be available for the PLAN's two carriers as well as for training. The additional aircraft will most likely be used to set up a second carrier-based air wing to be assigned to Shandong .
到目前为止,至少有2架J-15失事,另外2架已经损坏,这意味着目前据信这种飞机中只有不到20架可用于PLAN的两架航母以及用于训练。额外的飞机极有可能用于建立第二个以舰载机为基础的空中部队去分配给“山东”号。
