Xian H-20: NI with reference to the Pentagon called the range of promising Chinese strategic bomber

26

The American edition of The National Interest published material that reflects on a possible response from China to increase the number of F-5 fifth-generation fighter jets in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition to the United States, such aircraft are available in Japan and South Korea in the region; earlier, information about the Singapore contract appeared. The program also includes Australians.


Browser Peter Suciu writes that China could counter the expanding presence of the F-35 with the deployment of its latest Xian H-20 strategic bombers. True, the whole problem for China is that these "strategists" are still under development. The prototype H-20 took to the air in 2013, but for a variety of reasons the aircraft is still not brought to mind. One such reason is a problem with the engines. In principle, this problem today is characteristic of a whole new and promising aviation Chinese development.

From the NI article:

China may feel its responsibility to respond (to the increased presence of F-35s in the region) by speeding up its Xian H-20 program.

The material notes that the final version of the Chinese strategic bomber, "will probably be demonstrated at the Zhuhai air show before the end of the year, but only if the coronavirus pandemic declines."

Peter Suchu writes that the commissioning of these aircraft is constantly being postponed. At the same time, the author, referring to the data of the Pentagon, calls data on the range and armament of the Xian H-20:

According to the US Department of Defense, the bomber has a flight range of more than 5300 miles (about 8,5 thousand km) and can fly at subsonic speeds, having four powerful hypersonic invisible cruise missiles as its weapon.

The author at NI writes that such bombers "could threaten US military bases in Guam, as well as Japanese and South Korean military airfields with F-35s stationed there."

From the article:

He can even threaten bases in Australia.

      NI articles like this should be labeled as "publicity rights." In this case - F-35

        Well, I don’t know, I don’t know. For the time being, the Chinese saw the need to develop a bomber to withstand the reign of Leighting two. PR of level minus 100500. Or welcome with the whole staff of NI to ward number 6

          Moreover, the even penguins in Antarctica in a panic trying to knock out the US contract for iron penguins.
          This ineradicable habit of the American media raises everything to the level of "nonsense for downs".

            What are you what are you. Ren TV said that the iron penguins stopped American expansion, emerged as disco-shaped and destroyed the entire American squadron.

            Maybe so, BUT !!!
            Khinchiks walk very quickly: surface ships were set up, already the Yankees in the Asia-Pacific Region became crowded.
            On the 5th generation of the IA they swung, though there is a problem with dviguns (but they are sawing in the hope of an early success). And then, stepping over a generation, from the H-6 (s / k) analogue of our Tu-16, straight to the flying wing using the stealth technology! They say that this is a rough copy of the B-2 Spirit, but nevertheless, we are just going to blow through the model, and the prototypes of the Hunfuzes took to the air and threatened to show them at the parade in honor of the Air Force anniversary in 2020. Amy B-21 Rider is just being created, but here they took a picture of a demonstrator from space ...
            So, the N-20 (Hong-20), according to the Chinese representatives, is a long-range strategic stealth bomber, designed according to the flying wing scheme, having 4 engines, providing flight at high subsonic speed for a range of up to 7500 miles (Chinese air expert Fu Qianshao edition Asia Times) and carrying 20t load. At the same time, it can carry 4 air-based cruise missiles (strategic?) CJ-10K.
            The bomber was created from the beginning of the 2000s by the Xi'an Aircraft Manufacturing Company (XAS), which is part of the State Aircraft Corporation of China.
            The appearance of the prototype looks like this:

            I would like to wish our designers success in creating PAK YES.

      They want to have a nuclear triad.
      Still, missile-carrying aircraft, without entering the air defense zones, can launch cruise missiles across the United States.
      Try to track them over the Pacific Ocean.

        this is so to speak "in the plans", f35 does not seem to play a role, what is with them what without them, and the menacingness of f35 is somehow incomprehensible

            He can even threaten bases in Australia.

            Last year, the University of Sydney Research Center already published a report from which it follows that the US no longer has military superiority in the Indo-Pacific region and ceded this superiority to China.

    Does China really have REAL hypersonic missiles? Or, is it a vague hope for some perspective ???

      In China, as in Greece, there is much and much will certainly be. Only they try to first bring to flight, and then only give dosed information. And NI guesses, scares and breaks new funding for the Pentagon.

    The couple did not understand. Do they think that the Chinese will kill the Penguins with bombers, and not with their "invisible"? What is smoking there in NI

    "We will answer their garden bogeymen with our snowmen" .... In essence - (especially IMHO) - the Chinese will not have a good strategist until a normal modern copy appears ... The blades on the 41st still cannot be copied, But publications in the same Sohy are getting more serious and straightforward ... T-14 is bad for them ... but we have metal - always a fairy tale. But with electronics - trouble, we admit.

    for me so news from the category "nothing". Every little thing is pulled here. Someone said something, some expert thinks. Now, if the Chinese rolled out a prototype from the hangar, it would be more interesting.

    Hyper sonic missiles cannot be "invisible" or even subtle.
