    Any remarks about the exact internal fuel capacity of the J-20 ? What about its external fuel tanks ( since it is confirmed that it can carry 4 of them) ? Does the J-20 encorporate a pylon+fuel tank drop capability like the F-22 to preserve stealth. (Does it actually preserve stealth,if the pylon is dropped away along with the external fuel tank it holds?)

    The fact they are blue also implies those are training missiles instead of the real thing AFAIK.

    Yes, but would anyone expect live missiles during an international airshow?

    Sure. It's just that I can't remember any photos of them carrying the real thing. Then again this is a leading edge weapon so they probably try to hide its operations record a bit.

    Fifth generation fighters have the option to keep their bays closed! It will be very hard for PLA watchers to get a photo of a J-20 carrying the real thing unless PLAAF wants them too.

    From people daily
    Chinese scientists have found a material that can hide a hot object from heat-sensing infrared cameras, according to Suzhou Institute of Nano-tech and Nano-bionics, which could be useful for military and technology applications as well as for research.

    Error level around the supposed J-20 is off. In case imgur has recompressed the image, siegecrossbow if you have the image before uploading to imgur, could you perform an ELA on FotoForensics?
