The wording suggests it probablg won't be an existing "revealed" aircraft that we are already aware of.
Either a new aircraft or a significantly different variant of an existing aircraft imo
Not even a variant of an existing plane, such as the J-15D or J-16D?

I'm not an expert in Chinese so I've no clue.

Well the J-15D and J-16D is already revealed to us and have been flying for years now.
I think the way they describe this aircraft suggests it is much earlier in development than where we would expect either of those aircraft to be.

The "certain type of XYZ" also typically suggests a new type of product that has yet to be revealed imo

Are there any other clues suggesting how far along its development is? Might be helpful in guessing which project that might be.

To be honest it might even be referring to a drone.
