China Capable of Developing, Making Strategic Bombers

Mil.huanqiu.com reporter Liu Kun says in his report today that China is provided with the following three major conditions for making strategic bombers:

1. The demand for such bombers. Since the US is developing long range strike bomber B21 to bomb Beijing, China certainly needs something to respond

2. The technology. China is now developing Y-20 large transport and C919 airliner smoothly, it may obtain the technology for large bombers in the course of the development of large transports and airliners.

The greatest problem is the engines for the bomber. China is now developing WS-18 turbofan for large aircrafts.

China’s success in developing J-20 stealth fighter jet will enable China to make its strategic bombers hard to detect.

3. The 100 billion yuan (US$17 billion) fund for the development is by no means too much for China.

Since China is capable of building stealth strategic bombers, the mystic bomber China may have been developing will perhaps suddenly emerge to surprise everyone.
