Any remarks about the exact internal fuel capacity of the J-20 ? What about its external fuel tanks ( since it is confirmed that it can carry 4 of them) ? Does the J-20 encorporate a pylon+fuel tank drop capability like the F-22 to preserve stealth. (Does it actually preserve stealth,if the pylon is dropped away along with the external fuel tank it holds?)

Sure. It's just that I can't remember any photos of them carrying the real thing. Then again this is a leading edge weapon so they probably try to hide its operations record a bit.

Fifth generation fighters have the option to keep their bays closed! It will be very hard for PLA watchers to get a photo of a J-20 carrying the real thing unless PLAAF wants them too.
