Pylons are way behind the CG rendering them probably useless for heavy bomb loads and draggy (trim drag).

The speculation is that these pylons are for PL-10 and PL-15.

Although, a year or 2 back, there were images of a J-20 prototype carrying drop tanks - Image-1, Video-1

YJ-83K is the air-launched version of the YJ-83 anti-ship missile. Not sure about the specifications but It has an export version named C-802A - Link-1 , Link-2

Thanks. So it's the same as the C-802A on the JF-17 with the PAF?

C-802A carried by the JF-17 is the 'export' version of the YJ-83K. I don't know the specifications of the domestic version. Long time ago I heard a rumor that the range of the YJ-83K launched from JH-7/JH-7A is over 250 km. But I not sure whether that is accurate.

Submarine launched versions (export) are CM-708UNA and CM-708UNB. New ship launched version (export) is CM-802B. CM-708UNB and CM-802B have a max range of 290 km (Link-1, Link-2).
