A true 5th gen, from my understanding, is a family of systems integrated to work together effectively and efficiently. The J20, at best my have a decent sensor suite, but not as robust as an F35 or 22 even.

And why do you say the J-20 is not a true 5th gen?
Honest question, not a bait or trap.
It makes far more sense for the Status-6 to be sitting in habors waiting to go boom.

we've had those mini drone subs a decade before anyone else.
about the Chinese sub. sometimes it good to let a enemy show its hand. we let that sub do that. it was being tracked the whole time and the data we got on their capabilities has been priceless. at any point we could have stopped that Chinese sub but why not just give your enemy a false sense of security and let them hang themselves with their own ignorance and arrogance
