Latest image of China’s stealth fighter jet weapons bay is a bad Photoshop work

As we have already explained, on Jul. 2, the J-20 Mighty Dragon stealth fighter jet conducted a test flight with the weapon bay opened.

However, what we hadn’t noticed at first glance is that the inside of the weapons bay was blurred so as to hide its content.

Hence, the roundels you can see are not painted on the bay ceiling but were added in post-production: a bad Photoshop work, as you can clearly see the warhead of the missile housed in the weapons bay.

So, did Beijing want to show the weapons bay giving just a hint to the missile China’s 5th generation fighter plane will carry or was the missile head just a mistake?
