Millitary tech is a direct function of underlying economy. If no one here is sure about that strange-looking "WS-10a" or "AF-31", then it won't surprise me that it could be a new derivative of WS-10a, produced by a secret parallel project - quite logical though in light of China's economy.
The Telegraph should have the integrity to recuse Mr. Praveen Swami, a known strident Indian nationalist, from writing articles about China due to his exhibited anti-China bias. India did not warrant a mention because they are a mere buyer that is contributing money to the project. Using the standard set by Mr. Swami, we can lump Israel and all of the nations participating as buyers and money contributors in the F-35 project as nations possessing stealth technology.
Mr. Swami's list should either exclude India or include all of the F-35 participating nations. Any other choice is misleading.

But in the end of the day, China get results when nobody can turn to...and India?
LCA start about 5 years earlier than J-10 and what we got?
Now let's see if there'd be any flight of J-20 tomorrow...by what I've been sniffing through BBS like CJDBY, the fixtures usually associate with first flight was only setting up in noon, so it makes sense not today. But what about tomorrow? That'd depend on how much the CAC wanna keep the big shots waiting I guess...
And guys, think I just found somethin' not posted here yet...

I tink with this pic, you can calculate the length of this beast easy with that towtruck
BTW, some silly journalist popped the J-20 question during the Foreign Affair's daily press conference, of course the spokeswoman told him to ask the military instead...
Obviously knock the wrong door but can show clearly J-20 really generate interest in the outside world far more than J-10 did back then.

From this high-angled view, it's quite clear the J-20 have the planform for high speed. With reasonably powerful engines, it'll be interesting to see how the J-20 will compete with the other stealth fighters purely on speed alone.
