First image of China's newest stealth bomber arrives


It became known that Beijing is developing the latest aerospace complex called Yuan Hong. The first image of the model of this promising stealth bomber, which should become a key project for the military-industrial complex of the PRC for the period of the 14th five-year plan (2021-2025), has appeared on the Web.


It is assumed that the bomber will be of a heavy type and in its arsenal will be developed long-range hypersonic air-to-surface missiles, including those with nuclear warheads. Judging by the image, it will be built according to the "flying wing" aerodynamic scheme to increase the radar stealth of the structure.

There are no other details on this matter. However, it should be noted that outwardly, the Yuan Hong is very similar to the X-47B, an American multipurpose attack UAV from Northrop Grumman.

We remind you that since the beginning of the 2000s, China has been developing a strategic bomber Xian H-20 (range up to 8 thousand km). The prototype of this aircraft first took to the skies in 2013. It is made according to the aerodynamic design "flying wing" with the use of stealthof technologies... The PLA expects to start operating this "strategist" in 2025, replacing the obsolete N-6 bombers (a copy of the Soviet Tu-16).

    - Yeah - without our own engines and a production aviation school - even Sunhuivchai !!!

    It's somehow too optimistic, by 25, all the more from scratch. For example: everything that is actively flying now has been developed since the mid-70s and put into service in the early 90s. That is, on average, 12-15 years.

    China planned to build 500 (five hundred) J-20 stealth fighters, already built 150 (one hundred and fifty) such machines. 300 (three hundred) J-20s will be powered by WS-15 engines, with a thrust of 18 tons.

    The plant for the production of these engines has already been commissioned.

    Four of these engines will quite pull a B-2 stealth bomber, it has four of these engines, compare:

      Uasya, how far will these engines pull? What is their resource? What is the service cost?

        In fact, over the past 5-7 years, the Chinese have brought the resource of their engines almost to the level of Russian ones. Reduced the backlog to a minimum. Soon they will overtake the resource of the Russian turbojet engines and will chase after the American ones.
        So it goes. Follow the media ...

          When they bring their draloscopes to the proper level, as they imagine, then we'll see. But for now, watch the press. Well, wash your face. Green like a crocodile.
