that must have been a very important call! :D

The J-8 to me is such a wonderfully strange aircraft. It sort of teeters back and fourth between the Western definition of third and fourth generation without ever falling into one category or another. 'Its designed for BVR! Well there aren't any BVR missiles yet'. 'Its a multi-role aircraft now! Well its still obviously an interceptor at the core'. 'It has a very high thrust-to-weight ratio! Well it turns like a bus'. I wonder if that FBW they tested on the J-8III would have increased its abilities substantially? I guess we'll never know!
