Liberal usage of meta materials would be standard in 6th gen combat.aircraft. That I have no doubt and it will continue to get more advanced going forward.
Things like materials science and meta materials is as much art as science. This is fairly new territory that we have just now experimented with but not yet mastered. Much of the experiments and discovery are still done the good old fashion way and that is through trial and error not unlike Edison and his filaments.

When 7th gen rolls around, between the advancement made and the full integration made with new yet to be discovered composites and supercomputing processing, I believe partial cloaking is entirely possible especially when combined with nano techs and nano cameras.
Of course I would be a very old man by then unless the good lord sees fit to move forward my life expiration date.

Anyway that is my unprofessional prediction.

Well now that you've defined the "seventh generation", maybe you could explain the sixth generation?? or are you gonna start singing "This is the Dawning of the Age of Aquarious"?? oh yeah, that's the "Fifth Dimension",,, like when those birds are "lost" in a cloud of vapor??

I don’t think they will be any serious revolutionary changes to 6th gen only because 5th is already such a game changer.
I believe 6th fighters will just be more mature and refine adaptation of technologies found in 5th gen. More human machine interface, better avionics and networked warfare capabilities, better stealth shaping, and more powerful engines Ie. t:w ratio.

Oh come on dear IAF ... no aircraft is undetectable.... and that's known already.
To be fair, it did say that the J20 should be detectable from ‘several kilometres away’, which would be perfectly true since I don’t think anyone would argue that 5th gen are detectable by currently fielded radars at less than 10km.

How they then spun from that fact to the claim that India is a good position to counter PLAAF J20s is very much a mystery.

from "several Kilometers" a Pilot with a good pair of eyes wouldn't need the Radar.
Generally it's considered that To see a Lightning a SU35 has to be in about 50km and 35 km to see a F22. Obviously it's a case by case depending on the Radar and the boogy, But if a J20 Driver closes withing 75 km of a Indian radar it's only a matter of distance and time.
