China unveils the 6th generation JH-XX stealth bomber

China has attracted much attention from the western media with a prototype of the JH-XX stealth bomber, displayed at the Zhuhai Air Show.

This aircraft called JH-XX is a new generation bomber, that China has developed to replace the old H-6K bomber, and it is said to be qualified to replace the H-20 long-range bomber as well.

The existence of the stealth bomber was revealed by US intelligence not long ago.

Furthermore, the JH-XX can use stealth technology and combines the characteristics of a bomber and a fighter, in addition, it has a combat range from 1,800 to 3,600 kilometres.

The H-20 bomber is capable of flying at least 8,000 km without refuelling, which puts the Guam US base as well as the Australian cities of Perth, Darwin and Sydney within its effective range if it is deployed on the Chinese island of Hainan.
