    Throwback to Zhuhai 2018: the YL-5 1000 kg laser-guided bomb was seen testing on JH-7 prototype #816 during the airshow exhibition. It was also displayed as part of the JF-17 weapons package.

    Refer to post #95 for closer-up photos of the YL-5.

    Not sure if this is anything substantial, but a graphic from Hongdu Aviation seems to suggest that it is developing a stealthy air-launched cruise missile. Some websites speculate that it could be carried internally by the J-20, but nothing is confirmed as of now.

    The silhouette itself seems good as it seems to be a kh-101, however I do think it is meant to indicate that a stealthy cruise missile is in the works which of course is something we've known for a long time (probably more than one as well)

    Well spotted about the Kh-101 - it's upside down, so it wasn't obvious!
