Chinese Stealth J20, Look Familiar?
The general layout of the aircraft is not all that impressive. The forward canards suggest a typical pitch-up attitude control necessity because most of the aircraft's weight is positioned well aft. There does not appear to be a stealthy architecture built into the aircraft because of its very conventional "boxy" lifting-body that houses the weapons and landing gear. The non-vectored thrust is another problem that gives off a very much more defined infra-red signature.
