    The line was because the image is perfectly cemetrical. Indicating a doctored image either CGI ( my bet) or a half model. It was the mirrored to create a complete image.

    The upper badge has a black aircraft inspired silhouet
    It looks like a drone with winglets.

    Well we're not really talking about global times' credibility so much as the CCTV segment's credibility.

    The global times article is obviously written by someone who doesn't know much, choosing to quote a source of poor credibility (Russian Gazette??) and someone with slightly more credibility (Mr Song). So we're not assessing global times credibilty at all, rather it's more the CCTV segment and Mr Song's credibility (or rather his logical process), and both seem fine to me and Mr Song's conclusion jives with what we know about H-20's development so far

    yes, it sort of looks like a CH-3 from the front

    but who knows what it's actually meant to portray. Might just be a generic non-existent aircraft for all we know

    As others have mentioned, the silhouette on the badge looks more like a smaller UCAV, based on the relative proportions of the landing gear.

    If you look closely at it, it's not. The thing I'm wondering about for the H-20 is the sensor suite; if it's larger than the J-20, it can also employ better EODAS; i.e, it can function as an EO AEW&C just as much as a B-21 can, and if it supercruises, it can keep up with the J-20s.

    Oh, I thought you were talking about the XAC video (see Deino's post above)

    That photo isn't even a "leaked shot" it's clearly a shot of an H-6K from a CCTV program that was photoshopped.

    When you said "leaked shot" I thought it meant a shot with any semblance of credibility or connection to the real thing, and that PSed H-6 is obviously just a fan made photo and a pretty poor one at that.



    I'm not sure why you believe H-20 will have a chance at supercruising, it's pretty much a done deal at this point that it'll be a subsonic flying wing.

    Come on ??? You really think it is REAL???

    That is a well known faked image - and IMO not even a good one. So any conclusions about its sensor suite or its functions are either simply logical due to the nature of such a surely larger aircraft or by what we know so far or it is impossible to conclude ... at least from a faked image.

    But why you think a stealthy flying wing should be able to supercruise is even more beyond me .... o_O
