    Holy smoke !

    Look awesome

    PLAN maybe sending big signals but PLAAF will send shivers down the spine of rivals

    When are we likely to see this deadly bomber

    Interesting section

    Program Status

    Although many facts are still unclear, some information is available regarding this program:

    • The primary contractor for the new bomber is the Xi’an Aircraft Industrial Corporation (also known as the Xi’an Aircraft Company Limited) XAC and its affiliated no. 603 Institute.
    • For certain areas like the wing geometry, the S-shaped dorsal engine intakes and the engine’s exhaust as well as the flight control system of the new bomber is said to have gained assistance for technical solutions from Shenyang’s SAC and its experience on the Sharp Sword UCAV.
    • The Chinese aviation industry seems generally confident that through the J-20’ and Y-20’s development (as well as via international cooperation) AVIC has gained enough expertise to overcome any eventual technical difficulties including engine location, air intake design, material selection and stealth technology.
    • The new strategic long-range bomber—officially known so far only as the “strategic project”—will probably be designated H-20 and has been under development since the late 1990s, or more likely, the early 2000s.
    • The PLAAF was reportedly undecided for some time about the requirement and what type of bomber would fit this best. Consequently—and similar to the alleged new tactical- or regional-bomber design under development at SAC—various configurations were studied ranging from supersonic configurations thru conventional and even quite innovative designs: one is said featuring a delta wing geometry and canards while others were more conventional to finally a subsonic stealthy flying wing design (Chinese Military Aviation Blog, February 12).

    Wasn't it rumored that the prototype rolled off the assembly line on June 8, 2017?

    Indeed ... but others said the one who posted this at the cjdby-Forum was later expelled.

    There's insufficient number of planform generating lines here I see to finally destroy LO planform alignment rules.
