This was supposedly spotted in China. Anyone know what exactly this is?

I had posted the same question in the PLAAF section ... and IMO the question is: Is this the old JZY-01 testbed, now with eventually the outer wings and the radome removed or a new type? At least the open source GE version shows it on 12 December 2019 still complete.

Any idea in which corner this is is sitting?

It's still the JZY01 but not sure why radome was removed. Or it could be a KJ600 test frame that bears a striking resemblance to the JZY01.
