this will be a real game changer after rf stealth , because irst was only challenge(along with low freq radar) to stealth and now irst will have problems
btw ,4.5 gen jets can also have this so i believe after 4-5 we will see rafale or tejas mk2 painted with ir stealth coat , according to alpha defense work on ir stealth coat has been started in collab with iit

I'm not sure what is it bcoz it doesn't cover entire body from all angles. Belly & underside of wing are not covered. SWB covered but not MWB/UWB. Rudder covered but not tail-plane.
It could be adaptive IR camouflage, passive RF panel or laser reflective panels, etc.

ir stealth is the most prominent theory about the coating (as told by defense experts)

Could be but in that case belly shouldn't have been left. There are ventilation grills beneath.
Rafale has used composite materials to greatly reduce IRS. But a typical composite skin or IR coating will be stealthy in RF bands is also a question. So either a superb material with reduced RCS & IRS is needed or the IR coating/panel needs to be covered by RAM.
Now when DEWwill be reality in 6th gen then laser reflective skin is also requirement.
So ultimate challenge is reduced IRS+RCS+DEW damage reduction.
