That should ensure a spirited rebuff to China's attack on them.

You're assuming that the PLA-Ns ASW is up to speed. I don't think so!

FYI, the J-20 reaching and bombing NZ? Why on earth would it, and it can't anyway without massive refuelling support which is extremely vulnerable.

No my friend, I can understand the logic behind the J-20 but kamikaze, which is what you infer here, is not really an option with aircraft that expensive.

Combat green, yes. I think that the Chinese pilots who exercise with the annual SCO military exercises are fairly competent though. You'd be right though, PLA-AF pilots generally get less "stick time" than their corresponding western counterparts....maybe because the J-10/11 series combat aircraft are too maintenance expensive.
