Honestly speaking, as an Indian ,I do agree withIt’s never good to underestimate your enemy. The J-20 uses the Luneburg lens, that devise is especially made for aircraft like the F-22 and J-20 to be seen on radar and to masque the actual RCS. External fuel tanks have also been spotted on J-20s.
The J-20 also is “stealthy”. It follows all the basic concepts of RCS reduction. It will be extremely difficult to detect. Even a J-10 can be a real threat especially in large formations combined with AWACS. Even somewhat outdated aircraft can shoot down a much more modern aircraft if those more modern aircraft are ambushed and outnumbered.
Do Chinese aircraft have radar? Yes. Do Chinese aircraft have missiles and bombs? Yes. Then they are capable of inflicting damage.
that idea of a Luneberg lenses Reflector with you,the Chinese are not so fool that they will make a stealth Aircraft that can be easily detected by Even a 4th generation fighter aircraft.
Another thing that may have caused the J-20's RCS to have been increased was that it had its bay doors open and hence it Resulted in an Increased RCS that day and hence it got Detected By SU 30 MKI.
