I seriously doubt that they have any better stealth coatings than what survived that F-117 crash. Probably no stealth coating at all. It will have a reduced signature due to design but it will be plenty visible to any radar. I have no confidence at all in the Chinese.

What demonstration of technology did any of the allies provide during the second world war? The Manhattan project for certain, but by that time the German's were beaten and the Japanese on the ropes. In fact the Nazi's were years or even decades ahead in many fields, most notably rocketry and jet engines, yet they lost largely because of the allies superior industrial base and material resources.
I believe it was Stalin who said that quantity has a quality all it's own. Just because the west maintains a technological lead for the moment, that does not negate the threat that the largest industrial base in the world poses, with it's ability to overwhelm with numbers and replace losses at a greater speed.
