Nanchang J-12

The Nanchang J-12 was one of China's first attempts at an indigenous fighter, with an order for a small, light, STOL (short take off and landing) aircraft first being issued in 1969 to replace the MiG-19. Lu Xiaopeng and the Nanchang Aircraft Corporation designed and built the aircraft respectively. Armed with a 23mm and 30mm cannon in the wing roots, the J-12 could also carry PL-2 or PL-5 air-to-air missiles. There was another version, known as the J-12I or J-12A, that had a 8,929 lbf (39.72 kN) Wopen WP-6Z afterburning engine on top of other changes. Which brings another point up, the base version of the J-12 is non-afterburning, with a 24.52 kN (5,512 lbf) Wopen WP-6B engine.

Why do I want this vehicle in game?

This would give China something that I am sure many people would not mind seeing, an indigenous Chinese designed vehicle. On top of this, it will help fill out their top tier, even more so if the J-12A is added. The J-12 could be a 9.7, however this of course, can be changed!. However, for now, I would like to focus on the J-12, as Flametz has already done the J-12A.
