China’s long-range bomber should have a range of at least 12,000 kilometers and 20 tons of capacity, Fu Qianshao, an air defense expert. The H-20 bomber likely has prominent stealth defense capability and a better performance than the US B-2 bomber.
A covered H-20 was shown in a Xian Aircraft Corporation promo video.
The B-2 has a range of more than 6,000 nautical miles (6,900 mi; 11,000 km) on internal fuel and over 10,000 nautical miles (12,000 mi; 19,000 km) with one midair refueling.>A It entered service in 1997 as the second aircraft designed to have advanced stealth technology after the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk attack aircraft.
The H-20 is expected to go into service around 2025.
China’s aviation giant, Aviation Industry Corporation, revealed a model jet, believed to be the US B2 stealth bomber-like model “H20”, in a 9-second Easter egg in a video commemorating 60 years of its subsidy Xi'an Aircraft Industrial Corporation. https://t.co/yD5k0Ecc0O pic.twitter.com/kLWJkxSaXh
