China is developing a long-range stealth bomber

Since 2008 1st aviation Institute of China Aircraft Corporation (AVIC) is developing a first-generation long-range stealth bomber for the PLA Air Force, according to a report from the China Aviation News state agency. This is what today wantchinatimes.com writes.


Senior Colonel Wu Guohai (Wu Guohui) from the Beijing National Defense University told China Aviation News that a stealth bomber has two advantages over ballistic missiles. Firstly, ballistic missiles can only start once, while a stealth bomber can take off repeatedly. Secondly, in the case of cancellation of the order, ballistic missiles cannot return to the base, but a stealth bomber can.

At a time when the US decided to finance 1,2 billion dollars a year to develop a new stealth bomber to replace Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit, Wu said, it is time for China to have its own stealth bomber. Conventional strategic bombers, such as B-2 and Chinese Xian H-6, are easy targets for enemy fighters and anti-aircraft missiles. Russia is also designing its new-generation long-range bomber to compete with the United States and China.

Currently, the United States is the only country in the world that has developed and has stealth bombers. AT stories US military aircraft developed three types of long-range stealth bomber: Lockheed A-12, Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk and B-2. Today B-2 aircraft are the only manned stealth bomber in service. For this reason, China sees the development of a long-range stealth bomber as a breakthrough for the country's aviation industry.

China is currently the only country in the world, with the exception of the United States and Russia, which develops long-range or medium-range stealth bombardirovschiki. According to the report, Xian Aircraft Industrial Corporation and Shenyang Aircraft Corporation began conceptual design more than 10 years ago. At the beginning of the 21 century, the Chinese Aircraft Corporation took over the design and continued to develop the Chinese stealth bomber.

After the 30 years of Deng Xiaoping's open-door policy, China has more resources than ever to complete this project, according to a China Aviation News report. China needs a real stealth bomber because modernization of the H-6 bomber can act as a temporary measure, the report says, and they are outdated to be the basis of real strategic aviation and to project the influence of China.

    First, ballistic missiles can only launch once, while a stealth bomber can take off more than once.

    I'm afraid if it comes to ballistic missiles, then 2 times no one flies.

      War is the physical elimination of a competitor, + its economic weakening.
      China's creation of a new "stealth" (even if it is not stealth at all, and not a bomber at all) is a blow to the economy of the states, and confirmation that the states are not in vain paying attention to the region's maintenance.
      Consequently, the influence of the states on BV is weakening, and here is the work of the allies in action ...

        Russia ..... to compete with the USA and China.
        Eka where the terrible Colonel Wu bent.According to him, it’s not China that kserit everything that is stolen, but Russia slammed both fighters and spaceships and an aircraft carrier ......
        Cool.
        I personally think that the ephemism "develops" means waiting for Russia to create its own PAK-DA to steal it at the development stage and pass it off as its own efforts of the brain.

        Do not let the states dominate the world, establish their own rules, weaken the economic potential of the United States, increase their security, their strategic capabilities !!! This is first of all aimed at the efforts of such countries, creating their projects for long-range bombers like China and Russia !!!

      If it does, it does not even fly once ...

      It means that ballistic missiles are not suitable for exerting military pressure on a particular country, and aircraft can be recalled. What gives strategic nuclear forces flexibility in use.

    Let's see what kind of beast the Chinese will get, but to be honest, I don’t feel like rejoicing at the works of the Chinese comrades.

    They think about the future, and it’s hard to blame them. It doesn’t matter if they themselves build it, copy-paste or communize it, the main thing is political will, desire and opportunities to develop strategic aviation.

    The "hackers" and the "3D machine" work well for them. sad This allows making new models of equipment with the least expenditure of time and financial resources. "Wopa" will come when they will finally be able to fully copy aircraft engines (performance characteristics of the originals). And now they already have the main components: Electronics, The ability to build gliders, A large amount of information obtained, Financial resources. Not enough: engines (with high performance) and experience with a design school.

      I can assume that the problem is not only in the formulation of "superalloys", but also in the production technology (including, in working with monocrystals, etc.)

        Yes, China has already splashed all the alloys on 3D printers, will soon switch to planes entirely in place with fuel and a pilot !! wink wink wink

    Compared with the F-117, the tail and air intakes are more developed, the wing seems to be not a continuous triangle and less sweep, apparently they want to make the machine more aerobatic than American invisible ... It will apparently fly anyway at a speed of about 1000 km / h as 117 ... But here we must already have the ratio of the mass of the apparatus and the thrust-weight ratio of the engines ...

    Still, it looks like blah blah blah. If you were seriously engaged in development, there would not have been voices about it at every corner ... Or is it only in our country that such works are secret? Remember when everyone saw the T-50 ...

    Who is the first, We or the Chinese? It would be interesting to compare our product and them.

    If China is planning, they will do whatever they plan by any means. Their desire and possibilities coincide.

    First, ballistic missiles can only launch once, while a stealth bomber can take off more than once. Secondly, if the order is canceled, ballistic missiles cannot return to base, but a stealth bomber can.

    That is, weapons are not for war, but for blackmail, soared - scared - forced to sign - sat down. Yes, and the object of blackmail ... ambiguous ... what
