WS-10 is not a high bypass engine by any stretch and has been used extensively in J-10 and J-11. Comparatively, it has higher bypass ratio than WS-15 which means reduced fuel consumption.
LOL All respected senior/professional Chinese said WS-10 based on ( CFM-56) civilian engine ànd relatively high bypass ratio of all indigenous engines ànd by the way its a first successful turbofan of China

Any updates on the HQ-26 (SM-3 equivalent)?

HQ-9bE ans System as well as hq-22 being mentioned I think now like s-400 HQ-9 supports various missile types with many dodge to radar types
Covering low, med and high altitude detection and engagement

The high-bypass version of the WS-10 is the WS-20 on the Y-20B.

The WS-10 is not a high-bypass engine. It wouldn't be powering fighters if it were.

Com on ... the WS-10 is NEVER ever a high bypass engine and no-one ever claimed this. Also I'm not sure what you mean with "relatively high bypass ratio"? AFAIK we don't know any specific data to say it has a higher high bypass ratio in comparison to the US F100 and F110 or the Russian AL-31 and AL-41 engines.

Might want to wait for TVC for surprising maneuvers.
I wouldn't throw a spanner with reference to TVC development in China.... That's a wholesome new game and what they demonstrated lastly with J-10C, isn't on back burner at all. In-fact, its a huge progress and indeed surprising in coming times. Now coming to J-20, I have more interest into a powerful flying which used to lack due to previous engine.

J-20 has much better manoeuvrability than you can see even without TVC. Look at this F-22 demo
you will see F-22 lit up its afterburners all the way during the demo. In each turn, F-22 pulled maximum thrust as the two engine nozzles looked burning bright.

F-22 relies heavily on full engagement on afterburners during the demo otherwise the demo cannot be such stunning.

Same happened with JF-17 demo

J-20 pilots should be allowed to use the afterburners more often with greater thrust for the airshow. Therefore its turns can be a lot sharper and the demo can be more entertaining. PLAAF leadership is way too conservative on this matter.
