Chinese UAV & UCAV development

Blogger "草根设计师-CAD" hinted at a new attack UCAV aircraft (or some other type), with the following clues about its specifications:

总载弹量超过“利剑无人机”3倍;
飞行速度超过“翼龙无人机”3倍;
滞空时间超过“歼10战斗机”3倍;
隐蔽接敌超过“歼15/歼16”战机;
能满载高原机场加力起降;
能满载海岛机场短距起降;
能对空/对地/对海发起攻击;
能挂载“歼20和FC31”装不下的攻击武器;
高抗损,高出勤,高可维护性;
攻击还用不“隐轰”出马的敌方目标;

这样子的“攻击2035”,香不香?
Essential points (please help improve my translation and add if needed):
  • Its weapons load is over 3 times that of the "Sharp Sword" UAV
  • Its top speed is over 3 times that of the "Wing Loong" UAV
  • Its endurance is over 3 times that of the J-10
  • Its "stealth strike capabilities" (paraphrase - please improve translation!) exceed that of the J-15 and J-16
  • It can operate from high-altitude airfields
  • It has STOL capabilities and can operate from an "island airport" (code word for aircraft carrier?)
  • It can attack air/land/sea targets
  • It can mount weapons that the J-20 and FC-31 cannot otherwise carry
  • It has high resistance to damage, high operational availability (translation help!), and high serviceability
  • The last point needs translation - please provide if you can
The closing line says something to the effect of: "This "Attack 2035", isn't it nice?"

Any idea what the hell this could be?
I suspect it being an UAV only since a few references to the WL and GJ-11 are made.

Don't think anyone can dispute the GJ-11 is in active service. Why else would the air force have them on the national day celebration? If they haven't taken delivery of them yet. They can't show something they haven't been given.

Something being shown by official military in PR is 110% sure of already being part of the military, China doesn't show all active service weapons in public shows but everything in public shows is in service.

The mockup shown during the parade suggests the non-afterburning version of the WS-13/RD-33 engine fitted has a redesigned nozzle - no longer the one shown from 2013 pics of the sharp sword prototype. Not showing an example of the actual GJ-11 is strange but perhaps done so to avoid exposing what the actual nozzle looks like. Chances are there are some differences and capability is usually hidden when it comes to China rather than the other way around like some countries ;)
