Last week, American manufacturer of strategic stealth bombers Northrop Grumman announced the arrival of the B-21 Raider, which will "change everything." The presentation is scheduled for December 2 this year. It is obvious that the plane is being created to confront the Pentagon with China and Russia. But Chinese military experts, in an interview with the South China Morning Post, refute Northrop Grumman's laudatory rhetoric.
The debut of the B-21 will have a limited impact on the global military-strategic order. Compared to the B-2 bomber, the B-21 will have a smaller combat radius
Fu Qianshao, China's People's Liberation Army weapons expert, said.
Military experts from the Celestial Empire are confident that Raider will not be able to overcome Chinese air defense systems, in particular the S-400, and when trying to carry out military operations against China, it will be detected by radars and shot down by medium or long-range anti-aircraft missiles.
Hong Kong military observer Song Zhongping also casts doubt on the claimed superpowers of the Ryder.
The PLA is constantly improving its means of protection against stealth aircraft of a potential enemy. The United States overestimated the capabilities of the B-21 and underestimated the capabilities of the latest air defense systems of China and Russia
Song Zhongping said.
