i keep wondering if there is in fact triple pylon for h6k/j inner hardpoints, in which case by my calculation a single sortie can carry 14 kd88-like missiles, and that is quite a delivery capacity
oh, didnt know there is a wing span issue - would a dual pylon work in your opinion?The wingspan and footprint of KD-88 means such a thing won't really be plausible.
If they developed a new missile with a smaller footprint like JSM, JASSM, Kh-59MK2, or even just a similar one to KD-20 but smaller, then it would be plausible.
As of 2020, the PLAAF has operationally fielded the H-6N bomber, providing a platform for the air component of the PRC’s nascent nuclear triad.
In 2021, the H-6N-equipped unit very likely will be developing tactics and procedures to conduct the PLAAF nuclear mission.
