Chinese bomber H-20 will allow the PLA to attack US bases


Beijing's H-20 stealth bomber will give China a "truly intercontinental" capability that expands its military reach far beyond its borders. This is stated in a report by the analytical center Royal United Services Institute, reports the South China Morning Post.


The Pentagon believes that the H-20 is capable of striking bases in overseas US territories such as Guam and Hawaii. The range of its flight will reach 8-12 thousand km without refueling. The bomber will carry up to 45 tons of weapons, including nuclear weapons, and will be able to use four types of hypersonic cruise missiles.

The development of the bomber began back in 2016, and within five years, the combat aircraft may be ready for operation. The production of the H-20 is part of a wider modernization program for the PRC's armed forces.

Former PLA instructor Song Zhongping noted that the H-20 is being developed as part of China's nuclear triad, which also includes land-based and sea-based missiles. The radar "invisibility" of the aircraft is of great importance, since its design does not imply high speed characteristics.

Stealth is the main quality of the H-20, since in modern warfare "flying bomber trucks" are replaced by maneuverable multi-role fighters, and improved air defense systems allow to destroy high-speed aircraft

- said Zhang Zhaozhong from the National Defense University.

In his opinion, the stealth capabilities of the H-20 will be similar to the stealth capabilities of the American B-21.

    I do not know how they will go further, but they made a big jump. From the bottom to the top of strategic bombers. They now have one Xi'an H-6 bomber in service (this is a licensed copy of our TU-16 Serially produced from 1953 to 1963) Their only bomber looks a lot like the Northrop B-2 Spirit lol

    in modern warfare, "flying bomb trucks" have been replaced by maneuverable multi-role fighters,

    It's like comparing boxes to apples.
    Difficulties in translating from Chinese, peculiarities of Chinese "thinking" or incompetence?

    The H-20 Stealth Bomber Will Give China "Truly Intercontinental" Capabilities

    It does not expand, but complements the capabilities of forceful support of economic expansion in local conflicts in the middle zone in the presence of strong points - military bases.
    The strategic nuclear triad, which includes land-based, sea-based, air-based missiles, is a thing of the past.
    Today it includes a space group, an electronic warfare system and control.
    In the event of a Great War, it is not the army itself that is subject to destruction, but its Basis - the productive forces of the enemy: population, food base, production capacity, etc.
    This is due to the fact that in the event of a preemptive strike and the destruction of space, air, sea and land carriers, the so-called. “Dead hand” which hits the squares and destroys everything indiscriminately, the victory turns into Pyrrhic and loses its meaning.
    As Vladimir Putin said, we will die, but they will also die.

      So after all, according to your description, the "Great War" is already underway in Russia. And Mr.Putin himself copes well with this, without any Americans in a completely "democratic" way.

        Where is Putin destroying Russia's growing production capacity every day? Today, industrial production in Russia, as well as the consumption of oil, gas and electricity by our economy, ranks 4th in the world, overtaking India and Germany, respectively. I think you know how to use information from Google.

          What kind of industrial production are you talking about? Foreign or offshore capital?

    It is only in an inflamed mind that the thought can be born that China, with its own hands, will destroy the largest market for its goods ...
