    While J-20 program "seems" to enjoy top level support from the Chinese leadership (we don't really know for sure, for example the first J-20 "reveal" back in 2011 supposedly Hu Jintao didn't even know when asked by the visiting US Defence Secretary Robert Gates), Chinese aviation industry overall is relatively small. I remember there was an article I read few years ago that says AVIC is still the smallest compare to other advanced countries. It has the manpower of only 1/3 to 1/4 (I think less than 5000? IIRC) of the american military aviation contractors.

    C'mon, you really believe Hu Jintao doesn't know about the J-20 back in 2011? o_O If that's the case I have a bridge called Golden Gate to sell you for a nice discount price as a fellow SDF member.;)

    And then the Chinese Gestapo will pay him a visit and we'll never hear from the dude again. Sort of like what happened to the guy that blocked a long line of tanks near Voldemort Square.

    Eh...attract too much attention. Not saying the MSS guys aren't capable but getting rid of anyone that comes into contact with the footage will leave a long trail of bodies, might get international attention, and might cause the videos to go viral online.

    Not quite.
    The first picture depicts a german IRIS-T missile. It clearly isn't even Chinese given the english writing around the seeker.
    The second picture is a terrible adaptation of an ausairpower drawing of high offboresight missiles. It's obvious it isn't chinese in origin given the target is meant to be a PLA fighter.
    The third and fourth pictures are legitimate photos of J-20 and J-16 carrying PL-10 missiles or PL-10 missile dummies.
    the last picture is a CGI of PL-10, but not official.

    This is the clearest image we have so far of PL-10, and it is a few years old already.
