I am yet to see J-10s being used in active interception (show me?). Only J-11s and J-16s. Even in Tibet they are using J-7s, J-11s & J-16s (in small numbers only).
yea , for intrusions into taiwan not interceptions , only seen report of j-16 for interception .

I thinks its probable, J-20 is a new fighter after all, and maybe not high altitude tested thoroughly like how IAF or IA do ..
Do you realize how unrealistic that sounds?

A supersonic jet, capable of flying at excess of 20,000 meters (Mt. Everest is 8848 meters) at excess of the speed of sound, developing cracks when operated from high-altitude bases (~4000 meters) ?

I mean, if it had such a fundamental problem it would not even be considered air-worthy. In a normal single sortie of fighter jet it flies/cruises at an altitude of ~10,000 meters.

They also use refuellers & tankers for intrusion. For real-world scenarios where they are likely to run into an actual threat, they rely on J-11/J-16s.

Did you even read the alleged report ? Its the RAM coating developing cracks, not the airframe, so stop with the condescending attitude

J-20s in occupied Tibet is only for 'Power Projection'.

Operations from super high-altitude air bases on the Tibetan plateau would mean the J-20s will have lesser room to carry more weapons or fuel, resulting in a constrained combat range.

And PLAAF will only be deploying the Russian Su-30s and Su-35s and not their "indigenous" jets while facing the US Navy threat in the South China Sea, as same seen during Taiwan's ADIZ violations.
Actually deploying J20 in Tibet would be bad idea for reducing its life cycle. The better option would be bases in Xinjiang (Like Hotan) or Qinghai (like Golmud), they have better logistics and climates.

Powered by Y20B Tanker version it would take off from 1000m - 2000m hight airports.

Y20B has better WS20 engines than Y20A, which Russian D30 powered, it would provide more fuel to J20s.

According to our CMANO community war game, based on 2020 situation, the J20 were deployed in Golmud and Chengdu.

Fake for sure. Not having enough thrust could be more reasonable if true.

How RAM coatings (multiple) can develop crack if the internal composite airframe is intact! Also when an aircraft flys at 30000 feet what is the temp there? its less than -40 degree C. Also temp in Beijing reaches -10 degree C during winter, forget about Harbin. There should be other issues. May be starting underpowered WS engine at high altitude.

I doubt if he would have done it himself. He may have a cook do it for him considering his royal parent.
Most Chinese still see him as hero, since he died as a PLA member anyway during the war against USA.

Also we felt lucky that Mao had no more capable son, otherwise there would be a Kim family like N.Korea.

Of course !
Mao : yo comrade cook, cook me a noodles meal, I need something hot , and Don't forget tea.
Cook : O supreme comrade commander, enemy may spot us and we will give away our position
Mao : possible, but of the 500 men deployed here and 100 dugouts, I will take the 0.01 probability of my dugout getting shelled. Others may get hit, but thay is the supreme sacrifice MaoZedong demands for the communist cause.
Cook : as you wish comrade commander.

We all know what happened next

Mocking Mao Zedong's son for the 'fried rice story' is punishable and highly frowned upon in mainland China. That means there's some truth to this story.

Recently a Chinese celebrity chef was hounded and cancelled by Chinese communist party members when he posted video of himself on YouTube making a fried rice recipe on Mao Zedong's son death anniversary.
