The 9th Brigade of PLAAF, based in Wuhu on the east coast of China, is now receiving its first 2 J-20 fighters. This means that 8 years after the inaugural flight of the program, the aircraft is officially assigned to front-line units, especially against the US and its allies.
Still they've trained for over sea combat missions and are supposedly ready for combat patrol. I think they can be used for combat should the need arise.Not sure how frontline Cangzhou's regiments are. They're more of an elite strategic reserve stationed in the interior doubling as an advanced training unit.
