This is a pretty important development in the Asian military balance. As an interceptor the J-20 could fire their missiles first against incoming US or Japanise F 15's. And as a small ( F-111 type)bomber but with stealth. The J-20 could carry out surgical strikes.
All the more reason for Japan, korea and Austrialia to get the F 35. If the F 35 is delayed they should consider the stealth version of the F-15 as an interim fighter.

It looks alot the Avro Arrow, which still could be useful to any Air Force.
