This is good news, based on the turn radius, the large J-20 maneuverability is considered good although not as nimble as the medium fighters with known maneuverability. It could still get into limited dogfight.
Maneuverability is not as important as before, anyway.

It is added advantage in unexpected situation. Despite having off boresight highly maneuverable PL-10E, some dogfight is still required in order to get confirmed good kill. Test proven agile short range IR guided R-73/74 & AIM-9X would still overshoot and miss target against nimble fighters at bad angle despite lock acquired.
