Sorry I was referring to Blitzo's post at #2756. Scroll down a little on that link. He drew a red box around it.
I did saw it. Was it a part of the maintenance panel or the pop-up panel when the gun is going to shoot like in F-22? IMO it was a bit too far in the back for it to be the pop-up panel, especially when deflection shooting in a dogfight, so I guess it's the maintenance panel?

I believe it's part of the maintenance panel too.

Really? hmm, that does make sense considering the current jet is somewhat underpowered and they aren't going to war anytime soon anyway. At most, they'll only lack the gunnery practice time. Out of curiosity, do you have any pictures of the gun port? It'll be interesting to compare it to F-22 & F-35 gun ports. Also, do you know what type of gun will it use? Will it be the J-10 gun, J-11/16 gun, or a whole new Gatling gun?
I don't know about lacking gun practice... if the software has stuff like gun funnel and radar gun sights (which can use, for example, balistics data of a Gsh301 in the absence of an actual gun on J-20) the pilots would be able to simulate guns only dogfights as much as they want. However whether J-20's software encorporates gun simulation at this point is a question I can't answer, just suggesting one possibe workaround

Have you all lost your marbles? It's clearly that plant photobombing the engine nozzles.
Honestly though we know those are Taihang nozzles behind the plant. What really matters though are the serials of those birds and more importantly if they are already in operational service!
