What happened to this thing or was it photoshop?
Likely in development. Still, I don't think anyone in the forum can assert these haven't become part of the service. The "situation" is evolving such that systems like these are going to be very valuable ( if they managed to meet the brochure claims).

I have issues with the Kyle Mizokami article ( I rate him very poorly) regarding certain technologies he points at to be part of the drone, like utilization of Surface effect. Does it have the wing chord or area to extract the benefit of Surface Effect? I am not sure. Sea skimming doesn't need to exploit Surface effect or that's what i think.

It seems that the toys you hear about more are more for export. What's for the Chinese military it seems you hear less of until it's put into service. Look at the WZ-7. First you saw some pictures of it and you didn't hear much of it for years and now you have some great shots of it especially flying. How about how people said the DF-41 was dead and the DF-31A replaced it. Now the DF-41 is official.

Technically Wingloong 2 is for domestic use as well but it is on the low end of the spectrum, with Wingloong 10 and GJ-11 filling the high end.
