    finally some info on the 52'cs weaponry. 280 km is very impessive. the progress the lacm is getting is also very good. the missle may be finished development by 2007 and will enter srvice when gallileo come online in 2008.

    is their info on the speed of the yj-62?

    nice, that's 280 KM lo-lo range for YJ-62 and probably more for domestic versions. And also 210KM+ lo-lo range for YJ-83.

    The H-6 isnt very reliable these days...

    H-6 not reliable...? have you considered the new versions? the B-52 is jsut as old!

    well... the only reason i see Iran wanting it is to handle CBG....

    No dude, the H-6 really isnt that great

    1. B-52 > H-6 w/ upgrades

    2. B-52 is from mid-50s, but still can get more job done than the H-6

    3. B-52 payload is 70k lb, THERE IS NO WAY THAT THE H-6 CAN CARRY THAT MUCH! I can understand if the H-6 is equal to the B-52 in many things from... H-6 is too FARRRR away from the B-52

    Summing up: B-52 MAY from the 50s, but truely revolutionary

    the b-52 is a great aircraft, and is set to retire after over 100 years of service. the h-6 was comparable to early versions of the b-52, but quikly lost its lead. but im sure the chinese will find more ways to upgrade it. but the best way is replace it with a backfire.

    China is wasting time upgrading the H-6, it cant carry 70k worth of weapons... low payload... i agree, backfire is out solution for the time being
