    Where's this from? Anybody else notice that it indicates 8 missiles in the J-20, 6 in the main bays?

    Pictures of the J-20 bay imply that it's 6 missile capable in the main weapons bay. The limitation is the missile design, i.e, the PL-15 needs to be eventually replaced by micro-missiles of similar or greater capability.

    I believe the picture itself is fan made but is an accurate depiction of the cockpit configuration.

    The six missiles in the main bay is likely either depicting what the original creator hoped for PL-15 (before we had confirmation that it carries four rather than six), or meant to represent J-20 when the "PL-20" is developed (i.e.: the BVRAAM that J-20 should be able to carry six of).

    and that's by design, flying the J-20 is "no sweat", he's not anxious about anything else he might meet either, in fact he could use a big fat "stogie!"

    He's a cowboy on "burner"!

    Like I said, it's so retrograde. You have to remember when the J-20 carries 8 missiles, including 6 in bay, the Americans will be carrying 12 missiles in their F-35s, of similar or greater capability.

    nice bait. But that'll be a pass.
    Also, approaching troll territory.

    What is the Oxygen delivery system used aboard J-20 ? Is there any issues reported with the use of it. Any issues with the RAM coating degrading and mixing with the oxygen delivery system and poisoning the fighter pilots? Even the russians Su-T 50 squad seems to be pleased to announce the technological advancements with their oxygen delivery system.
