    I won't totally count these speculations out because similar speculations about J-20 and J-31 all turned out to be pretty close to reality...

    • Welcome to the age of Unmanned Warfare. Although the "Dark Sword" on the released photo is just a full scale mockup, it shows this project has not terminated as pervious speculation assumed. Wind tunnel testing could has been underway.




      ​Ignore the comment section with all those "polite and friendly" conversations on who has larger xxxxnis, the article is worth reading.
      With AI technology developing, UCAV can be used as wingman/sentry/strike arms for new generation aircraft who has some C2 capability (like J-20 and F-35),

        • Two type 055 DDG got launched simultaneously today, increased total number of this class to 4.
          ​it is very likely that Dalian shipyard will continue the type 055 project and build pairs of 055s in parallel.

            • China is working on a new fighter jet for aircraft carriers to replace its J-15s

              China is developing a new fighter jet for aircraft carriers to replace its J-15s after a series of mechanical failures and crashes, as it tries to build up a blue-water navy that can operate globally, military experts and sources said.

              ...

              The need to develop a new fighter jet has become more pressing after a series of “unpardonable mechanical failures” that have killed one top PLA pilot and injured another.

              Two sources close to the military told the Post there had been at least four crashes involving the J-15, although only two of them have been reported by state media.

              “The J-15 is a problematic aircraft – its unstable flight control system was the key factor behind the two fatal accidents two years ago,” one of the sources said.

              Pilot Zhang Chao, 29, died in a crash in April 2016 as he tried to save his J-15 fighter jet, whose flight control system was breaking down during a mock landing on an aircraft carrier, according to state media reports.

              Three weeks later, his colleague Cao Xianjian, believed to be in his 40s, was seriously injured as he tried to deal with the same problem on a J-15. It took him more than a year to recover.

              All J-15s were grounded for three months after the crashes, which undermined morale in the air force and navy. The navy called for an investigation after Zhang’s death, the sources said.

              “But the aviation experts at first refused to acknowledge that the J-15 has design problems,” one of the sources said. “They only agreed there were problems after Cao encountered the same trouble.”
