PL-10 AAM spotted on a J-11B

Is this the first photo of the PL10, China Air Force's next generation of High Agility AAM?

Word on the street seems to agree.

Close by, a freshly minted J-11B undergo flight-testing

These are obviously not PL-10's, which is derived from A-Darter. In fact, there have been no previous records of these short-range missiles. They share the aerodynamic design theme of R-77, but are much smaller and feature an IR seeker. Chinese bloggers are labeling them PL-13, but this is wild guess.

I agree, they don't look like a PL-10. I'm thinking that these were developed specifically for the J-20's quick bays and maybe are unique to this aircraft.

I've heard the PL-13 label being used on the Chinese blogs, but I'll reserve judgment until we have more info.
