    well it was said that four of the 500km cruise missiles would accommodate J-20 and the naval fighter. Whether the J-20 can also carry four of the ALBMs is another matter

    Two stealth cruise missiles and two ALBMs would be quite the load out.

    One side of the coin remains skeptical at a Western source getting this kind of info, while the other side is willing to entertain the possibility.

    This is from a week ago, but contains some fairly significant rumors from PB19980515 about the J-XY.

    Translating it will be like drinking bubble tea from a garden hose, so I'll do a quick summary instead. Please correct if I am wrong in the translation/interpretation.
    • The FC-31 technology demonstrators are used to verify its low-RCS design, weapons bay design, low-risk high-speed maintenance, and assembly line configuration for precision assembly (???)
    • Potential customers for the FC-31 will be those looking for mid-to-high-end cost-effective solutions
    • The main purpose (of the tech demonstrators) will be for carrier adaptation, including takeoff & landing performance, low-vulnerability design (??), high maintainability, fast maintenance, high availability, deck configuration & fitting, as well as subsystems testing (Obviously a lot of help is needed in translating here)
    • I (Pb19980515) am 100% certain that the new carrier-borne fighter will be from Shenyang (as I've stated in 2017), that it will be of a conventional configuration, that it will have two engines, that its AESA radar will have 1500 T/R modules (each with XX watt power output), EOTS targeting device, and distributed aperture system (DAS)
    • It will have integrated EW and radiofrequency management systems
    • 70% probability that it will have flat tails and folding main wings
    (Link)

    ********

    In a different thread, PB19980515 still maintains that the J-XY will fly at the end of 2019 or early 2020; I'm not going to translate it because it's essentially a word-for-word copy of the above post: https://lt.cjdby.net/forum.php?mod=redirect&goto=findpost&pid=77661027

    What could flat tails mean, besides tailless?

    This section should translate to “70% probability that both the horizontal tails and wings will be folding”.

    Ah, makes much more sense. Thanks.

    I wonder why does he say "70% folding wing" at all. Isn't that a must for a Carrier aircraft? I know Rafale M does not fold its wings, but that is not China who is building a big carrier or super carrier in line of USN.

    I think it means "70% that both folding wing and folding tail" will be present. I.e.: probably 100% that folding wing will be present, but 70% that folding tail will also be present. Weird way of writing it but it's the only interpretation that makes sense
