Notes:

"Peace Pearl" J-8II was a proposed joint American-Chinese effort to mate the J-8 II production model with US avionics, APG-66 type radar system and ejection seat. The F-8 was yet-another series of technology demonstrators, with this model utilizing an integrated digital fly-by-wire control system and a Marconi HUD system. There was some commonality with the F-7 equipment in that the PDU was again derived from the F-16A/B but the Electronics Unit was the more powerful one derived from that used on the F-16C/D. Both units were again to be made under licence. This programme was embargoed by the USA in 1989 and cancelled by China in the mid 1990.
