The Shenyang Military Region received two regiment, about fifty Chengdu J-7E (MiG-21) Fishbeds in the nineties. At the beginning of the millennium the 1st and the 4th Fighter Division used them. The Chengdu J-7E (MiG-21) Fishbed was the Shenyang Military Region's first modern fighter aircraft.

As agreed in principle in 1995, Russia consented in 1996 to allow China to co-produce as many as 200~250 Sukhoi Su-27SK Flanker-B single-seat multirole fighters under license, initially consisting of assembly from Russian kit. China has designated the Su-27SK Flanker's Chinese version, which is being produced at Shenyang Aircraft Industry Co. (SAC), as the J-11 Flanker. The first 1st Fighter Division received the J-11s in 2002. The 1st Fighter Division's J-11 Flanker were modern and long-range fighters.

The other regiments of the Shenyang Military Region used very old fighter aircraft which were planned in the fifties. Seven regiments still flew with Shenyang J-6 (MiG-19) Farmer type!
