Y’all might remember the cyber espionage by china to steal F-35 data, they did it, the J-20 design ofcourse is chinese but everything inside is what F-35 carries inside (can’t say about quality though) which can be a threat.Per my understanding real 6th gen is way far ahead in future for China.. in our region it will still be useful for many more years to come
they copied the American EOTS and they have it in J-20
External pod will just increase RCS that’s why it is kept internal. Lockheed martin says its affordable which means it is for sale, hence ADA DRDO can buy and install it.
see these images, J-20 with stolen EOTS tech
F-35 with EOTS
although chinese one is copy but it will be dangerous as F-35’s EOTS can detect a Ballistic missile 1300 miles away hence we should not underestimate J-20 as it is F-35’s copy from inside if not outside.
