China’s JH-7A Fighter/Bomber Replaced by J-16 Strong in Electronic WarfarePosted: August 4, 2017
One thing worth notice in China’s military parade on September 30 is that JH-7A fighter/bomber that usually took part in such parade did not appear this time. In its stead, a brand new homegrown J-16G fighter/bomber was showcased in the parade.
J-16G has not only better ground and sea attack but also strong electronic warfare capabilities, which is very important in penetrating air defense to hit its targets.
