Is the J-20 a potential threat to the F-22?
Looking at it and from what you have heard how good could this aircraft possibly be?
Is it all stealth?
The engine nozzles are exposed, is this a weakness?
Just curious if anyone has any details on this aircraft in its infancy. Of course it has a long while to go.

War is about more than just technical superiority.
There are 180 F-22's. If China produces 5000 J-20's, they would overwhelm the F-22 by sheer numbers, even though it is inferior in one-on-one combat.
The days of people in fighter airplanes is coming to an end, and the next generation fighters will be unmanned aircraft with better performance, and longer loiter (flying) times than current generation

yep, if you have numbers and will to sacrifice them, you can hunt down even better technology.
remember the effort of allied fighters to eliminate the German jets by strafing the jet bases, patrolling the general area to intercept jets slowing down for landing.
if not anything else, confirmed presence of the F22 formation in the air of a nuclear superpower might be a valid reason for employment of tactical nuclear weapons to smite those F22.
