    This has already been discussed. Blitzo believes that at a later date the Chinese will have their own micromissiles so that the J-20 main bay could contain 12 missiles likewise. I'm just pointing out that wanting to put in 6 PL-20 missiles (which I've never heard of) into the J-20's bay will do very little, that a PL-15A or PL-15B with 6 missiles in the J-20's bay is more reasonable, and that next-gen Chinese AAMs need to be able to match the micro-missile paradigm.

    ...a missile, that so far also in the USAF still does not exist.

    Yes, and due to the physical properties, I'm rather certain that the priority now is for a longer range missile, rather than the "tiny bird"!

    Not this particular image but it is from the same collection as the one I posted before.

    I don't think so.

    Well, we’ve got a similar photo of the pilot’s visor earlier. I believe the assumption at the time was that the green/blue glow was the reflection of the MFD off his visor. However, if you look at the reflection and imagine this is what the pilot is seeing (also taking the consideration of the angle of the camera). And he would be staring at the HUD with a weird green/blue background. That would be very unlikely. So is it possible that the green/blue hue is from the visor itself?

    The visor is likely designed to resist dazzlers; laser dazzlers have been a recent threat to pilots of late and the F-35 will eventually get dazzlers installed. Normally, this would impact night vision and the quality of visual detection, but with EODAS you can rely on the cameras instead of your own eyes, and let the replaceable camera get burnt out instead of your retina.

    @Deino, we know the SACM is in development as well as MSDM. It's a family of weapons from the LREW (AIM-260, probably around 400 km of range) at the top, to the MSDM at the bottom (active chaff).
