*Double delta wings.

All this improvements pushes the F-7BGI from 3rd generation to early 4th generation in terms of capability, thus being classified as a 3.5 generation aircraft, thereby becoming the most advance F-7/Mig-21 ever produced. The 14 aircraft built will serve the Thundercats till 2015 when they will be replaced with Su-27SKM and transferred to 21st reserve squadron which is currently operating former Thundercats F-7MB. The planes themselves will be eventually planned to be replaced with 5th-genaration J-31 as soon as they becomes available for export.
