In China, the Xian H-6K bomber was called the "God of War"

66
Chinese media have published information that the personnel from among the representatives of the Harbin Air Force Academy was involved in special exercises on Xian H-6 bombers (modification H-6K). In the media materials of the People's Republic of China it is reported that the pilots were practicing flights at low altitudes, followed by calling on "non-nuclear bombing."


In China, the Xian H-6K bomber was called the "God of War"


We are talking about the aircraft, the base model for which was the Soviet Tu-16. In this case, the H-6K is one of the latest versions of the bomber, equipped with D-30KP-2 engines. The combat load (and he is able to carry and nuclear weapon) This Chinese aircraft is about 12 tons. The combat radius of the H-6K is about 3 thousand km. The weapons of the PLA Air Force Xian H-6K bomber took about 8 years ago.

It is noteworthy that the colors in which the Chinese media describe not only the bombing exercises themselves aviation, but also directly to the H-6K. SINA portal publishes photographs of a Chinese aircraft and writes that it can be called "God of War".

A very serious definition for such an aircraft. However, the media and in our country often give the same type of characteristics for certain types of not the most modern domestic weapons.

The PRC media reminds that the PLA has a naval version of this bomber today. This is a Xian H-6J with anti-ship missile launch capabilities. The Chinese aircraft manufacturing industry is working on the creation of the H-6N modification, which could become the carrier of the DF-21D anti-ship air-launched missile (DF-21DA). However, information that such a modification of the rocket is already prepared is not published in the Chinese media.

        Now any media do not spare paints

        both gloomy and bright

        Some call it "God of War", others - "Unparalleled",
        still others are "exceptional", but the essence is the same:

        - Media can’t be without sensation - there will be no advertising

          There was a case in history when the media went without advertising. True, the news was standard, about the struggle against the harvest and the evil grin of the imperialist west. There are always costs. And on the network, I installed an ad blocker and I’m not worried.

      Interesting of course. And how many heads and wings with one tail have the Chinese god, with one horse and spear have George the Victorious? Or, why did the image of George suddenly disappear with the primordially Russian penny, as well as the patronymic of the Russian person in all the media and speeches of those in power, except for themselves? And at the same time, they argue that in Ukraine there is a conversion of man into Bandera, what is also true?winked

      The patron saint of journalists in Catholicism is Francis Salski,
      The Orthodox have the Archangel Gabriel. Since being a messenger in the Christian tradition, he helps diplomats, couriers, ambassadors, postmen and other figures involved in delivering something or forging relationships. This also includes media workers.
      In the pre-Christian era, such gods do not seem to exist. Since media workers were considered damned and, upon detection, they were immediately buried laughing

      The Chinese have analogues of our X-55 as weapons, then it’s more correct to talk about the Tu-22M3 with the Zircon missile, also winged, albeit hypersonic.
      "According to Jane's Missiles & Rockets, one of the most secret projects of the Russian defense industry is an air-launched hypersonic guided missile (GZUR). The magazine, like other media outlets, does not indicate the code of this ammunition, but at the same time gives data: the weight of the missile is 1,5, 6 thousand kg, and the length - 6 m. The speed of the GZUR will correspond to 7 Machs (about 2013 thousand km / h), which will make it possible to level the capabilities of any existing missile defense system. The main purpose of the GZUR is to fight against large surface forces. In April 2020, Colonel-General, former Air Force Commander-in-Chief Alexander Zelin spoke in his lecture in April 1,5. According to him, by 6 Russia should receive a compact operational-tactical aircraft missile with a range of 8 km and a speed of Mach 9. well-known data shows that "Zircon" can reach speeds of up to Mach 2012 (about 2013 thousand km / h). According to unconfirmed information, in 22-3 prototy n this hypersonic missile passed throw tests from the Tu-XNUMXMXNUMX aircraft carrier at the Akhtubinsk test site. "

      This is a Chinese licensed copy of the Soviet Tu-16 jet bomber. The same glider set new engines and avionics.
      Engines by the way, ours. Such were on the IL-62M, IL-76 and Tu-154. Engine D-30KU. Increased flight range from 1800 km to 3000.
      Bomb bomb - 12 kg
      or 6 cruise missiles CJ-10A (copy of the X-55).
      It is somehow annoying that Russia is so actively arming and modernizing the armed forces of China. As if later did not come around.

          Xian H-6 has long ceased to produce. Now they are modernizing the existing ones. All weapons are in bomb bombs.
          The external difference is missing the rear cannon mount. Instead, they pushed the radar.
          It is interesting to see how long the Chinese will upgrade the Tu-16. Which is already at least 15 years old, like all the countries in which it was, they started to metal.

      You are laughing. I didn’t fly next to the triple (if only I stood in the parking lot). Our neighbors at the 16 airfield at M2 and M3 at 91 have changed. Heaven and earth. 16 with X-22 threes barely came off at the end of the strip, it just did not flap its wings, and the strip was 3200. We all watched and wondered if the short-range drive would blow the chassis or not. And 3 is beautiful. almost from the middle of the strip and went. Only ears are laying from the roar.

      Xian H-6K is the latest modification of the classic H-6 (Tu-16) with the new D-30KP-2 turbofan engines with a thrust of about 118 kN each, increased air intakes, an upgraded crew cabin and an enlarged radome fairing without a 23 mm gun [5 ]. The combat load is 12 kg. The bomber is capable of carrying 000 CJ-6A cruise missiles (copy of the X-10) [55]. Combat radius increased from 1 to 1800 km. It made its first flight on January 3000, 5 [2007]. Adopted by the Chinese Air Force in 6 [2011].

        To compare the Tu-95 strategist with the tactical Tu-16 bomber (H-6K) is somehow not entirely decent.

        A bunch of new aircraft from the Chinese, including their own development. But with the bombers they have, at the moment, a complete failure. It seems that they could not buy from anyone, nor steal, or rip off.

      Not only are they the only ones. PAK YES was postponed due to the fact that the product 80 contract was concluded only in 2018. They initially wanted to put the modernized NK-65 as an engine, but changed their minds.
      "The construction and start of testing of the first prototypes of the bomber (Prospective Aviation Complex for Long-Range Aviation, PAK DA) has been postponed approximately until 2030," the bmpd blog reports, citing the French magazine A? Ronautique Militaire. 80 "in the thrust class of 25 tons, which is still at the preliminary stage, as well as with the need to solve a number of problems to make the aircraft stealthy. Meanwhile, the state armament program (GPV-2027) included a program for restoring in a modified form the serial production of long-range bombers Tu -22M The study of the possibility of modifying the Tu-22M was started in accordance with the current GPV for 2010–2011 (R&D "Magnitka") adopted in 2020. In PJSC "Tupolev", the project of radical modernization of the Tu-22M is designated as "Product 345" ( the index "45-30" is also used), in connection with which the aircraft can receive the official index Tu-345. The aircraft "345" must be kept It is mainly the airframe of the Tu-22M3 bomber, but instead of the NK-25 engines it will be equipped with two NK-32 series 02 engines. It is known that the 345 aircraft will have a crew of two and will be equipped with a retractable boom for refueling in the air. the possibility of using conformal fuel tanks on top of the airframe, which, in combination with more economical engines NK-32, will significantly increase the range of the aircraft, bringing it in the ferry version supposedly up to 9-10 thousand kilometers. Presumably, "345" will receive onboard radio electronic equipment similar to the modernized Tu-160M2 aircraft. The armament will include cruise missiles of both the existing types (Kh-55 / Kh-555, Kh-101 / Kh-102, Kh-32) and the promising Kinzhal missile systems, GZUR and X-50, as well as a wide range of guided and unguided aerial bombs. In addition, the aircraft will carry nuclear weapons, including at strategic range, and the volume of bombs is likely to be increased. Boot compartment. "

      The funny thing is that the Tu22 M3 (if we take the avionics and weapons as equal) is clearly not better than anything.

      They are fundamentally wrong, avionics are not even comparable (without "Hephaestus") ... "Ruby" yes .. good, but .... "ancient", like me .... and bailout ..... did not try chairs ride to the starting position, at least when diving with a pitch angle of 1 degree? The simulator on your feet will seem ... "kindergarten".
      Missiles fly almost twice as far ...... NK-45 (MiS and Rumb) are much better than GPK-52 and DGMK-7 ... well, etc.

        He flew both on TU 16 K26 with KSR 2 and KSR5 and on TU22M3. My personal opinion: the TU16 is better as a bomber. Rubin1A is better for bombing than PNA. And the navigator's cabin is much more convenient than the "parcel box with a window" in the TU22M3. As a missile carrier, the TU22M3, of course, wins due to the range of the PNA and the Kh-22, although the KSR-5 is much more reliable. And in general, the Tu16 is an airplane, and the 22nd is a suitcase with wings.

          My personal opinion: how the TU16 bomber is better. Rubin1A for bombing is better than PNA

          And I wrote that Rubin for b / m is much better than PN, which is easier and more qualitatively adjusted, since all the slots are in front of you, and not in the whatnot of the second navigator.
          The navigator's review is better, I don’t argue, but you don’t need to look at the Tu-22M3 in the "window" ... unless you look at how the wingman stands in the ranks.
          DAC-5 agrees completely. About quality the same ..... Tu-16 can plan, but Tu-22M3 without "thrust" .... "brick.
          But the control is better, the maneuverability is better, the ABSU is much better than the AP .... the truth is, you don't go to "visit" ... only in a chair.

        What do you know about the avionics of the Chinese? Do you think that Hephaestus is not comprehensible for Chinese industry?

          Do you think SVP is a "panacea for all ills"?
          Answer the question ... how is the "intermediate wind" taken into account in the SVP and I ... "lag behind you as .... a bath leaf".

    Xian H-6 - he is 1000 years old at lunch. This is essentially a Soviet Tu-16.
    The Chinese have a gut on many issues, both in military aviation and in civilian.

    The SINA portal publishes photographs of a Chinese aircraft and writes that it can be called the "God of War."
    A very serious definition for such an aircraft. However, the media and in our country often give the same type of characteristics for certain types of not the most modern domestic weapons.

    For instance? The author, some kind of not too clean reception. What specific types of not the most modern domestic weapons are called “gods of war” in the Russian media? Do you think or are you able to give confirmation of these words?

    Xian H-6K named "God of War"

    Only this "God" has sand from behind. If it could be somehow radically improved, then in the USSR they would have gone exactly this way. But no, let's not go.

    China needs to update the "gods", otherwise they are outdated a little))

    Only the Chinese in 2019 can boast of a copy of a Soviet aircraft of the early 50s. Kamon, he has already had an 80th anniversary just around the corner.

    Apparently, these "gods" appeared after the obsolete Tu-16s were removed from service in Russia. We bought it at the price of scrap metal (like our first aircraft carrier), replaced engines, avionics, and painted them. And here he is - GOD OF WAR
