    LOL, Sina just reported that today! So either you know how to read Chinese (you liar! :D) or Sina is picking up their news from this forum!

    I am guessing the extensions at the tail is to better hide the engine heat signature. Notice how the bottom stablizers are also positioned to cover the engine nozzles from the side view?

    Now, upon closer examination, something looks off. It looks a bit manipulated. The lighting doesn't look right, and the surfaces of the plane look way too smooth compared to the grainy background. The missile looks especially suspicious.

    I'm not saying it's photoshopped, but the image was at least heavily retouched, probably to offset the smog.

    What do you guys think?

    UPDATE: never mind, it's a confirmed photoshop product. Sorry!:oops:

    The weapon pylons beneath the wing should have been sufficient warning.

    Sorry...never bought it.

    Does anyone think for a moment that on the first day they roll the new aircraft out that they would have an A2A missile like that in the weapons bay?

    Nope...not going to happen.

    I tagged the whole thing for a PS from the get go.

    Guys, everyone is waiting for 2016.

    Attempts to spoof SD forum and its members in an environment where there is high expectation for the real thing, no matter how good a spoof it is, will be deleted.

    Posting something that is admitted to be a PS up front is fine...as long as it is stated up front.

    We are waiting for the real 2016...thanks.

    However they seem to be older, since that darker structure on the radome is missing and I have quite exactly the same images (weather, light, ...) from 27. January.

    Anyway nice.
