I guess the S-62 is no longer an active program. Looks like it could be effective. A bit more from what I can find about it.

Yeah, though as noted the power requirements for a big radar will be a sharply limiting factor.

I wonder why they would go for such a large fixed installment vice a mechanically steered array like the MQ-4C? The only good reason I can think of is that this is a very low frequency array that requires a long antenna. As such perhaps its intended purpose isn't surface tracking but long range anti-stealth detection from high altitude. Though those engines look like they'd struggle to get that platform to MQ-4 levels if they use Chinese built engines.

You can get a much bigger array, though as above you can probably make it bigger than the power supply can reasonably support. It was probably designed to hold a long rectangular VHF or L band AESA array, mechanically steerable in one dimension (elevation).

Possibly only one array can be run at full power at a time, though then you need to ask why not have a single array in a single fuselage, and have it fully rotatable in one axis, as in the MP-RTIP on Global Hawk.

Unmanned supersonic interceptor ?

It isn't Dark Sword. It could maybe be one of the hypersonic test vehicles.

Can you help ID the stores on that J-10?It looks like two drop tanks and the PLAAF version of Krypton and some kind of pod fuselage mounted - ECM?

It likely isn't  the KG600 ECM pod; it apparently has a rounded nose:
