Major Upgrading of China’s Strategic Bomber H-6K

H-6K bomber able to attack Guam with two refuelings

China has developed a new version of its H-6K strategic bomber capable of aerial refueling, which will extend its range from 1,900 to 3,000 miles through two refuelings. That will enable it to attack US military base at Guam with YJ-12 supersonic anti-ship missiles with a range of 250 miles and CJ-20 subsonic cruise missiles with a range of 1,500 miles.

    China is a lot behind than Russian and American bombers which has more or less 8000 miles range without even refueling from what I’ve read. China needs to step up development of their military technology.
