To avoid collateral damages to the tow plane and other things on the ground, the warhead of the "training" missile is probably substituted with steel weight.
Recall this rumour on CD:From my twitter, cross posted cause I'm lazy..
On 10th anniversary of J-20s reveal, this is supposedly an AVIC official model of J-20 (alerted by a colleague).
-6 BVRAAMs in main bay, doesn't look like PL-15 -- the new BVRAAM?
-Unsure if engines are WS-10C or WS-15
-OP said there was a cannon, but no obvious site...

Specifically this bump definitely isn't on the real thing.
It is smaller than F-35A or Su-57 gun bumps, but it is more noticeable than F-22s gun location which is *very* subtle.
Not conclusive obviously, but I'm sure that difference isn't there by accident

Recall this rumour on CD:
please do not act annoyed as I wasn't trying to offend. isn't this forum a place to share thoughts in a civil manner? and excuse me if this topic had been discussed ad nauseum, I simply wasn't aware. But I'll stop. I'm not annoyed and I also do not feel offended, all I wanted to note is that...www.sinodefenceforum.com
I remembered the rumour said the new J-20A with WS-10 engine has six PL-15, however I went back to confirm and in fact it just says "加两个蛋" or "add two more missiles". I assumed at the time the "add" part means PL-15 but in rumour doesn't actually say that.
