Here's a Youtuber's theory about H20. He's saying there might not be a B-2 equivalent bomber, but rather a medium to large unmanned bombing / attack drone. It'll still be big and expensive, just not as crazy expensive as the B-2. He's somewhat hawkish and a bit overly ambitious about PLA's development progress, but very logical and articulate. Worth a watch. You can turn on English subtitle.

From what I understand he doesn't describe what you have presented at all. He says PLA leaks have hinted that 2020 is year of five 20s. J-20, Y-20, Z-20, H-20 ... what's the last -20?? That is suggested to be a "GJ-20" or some sort of JH-20. So H-20 being a B-2 like stealth bomber is separate to what you are describing for the strike role. That's another program which he says may be unmanned but this is of course pure conjecture. This hint about five 20s may be referring to 2020 when all five reach service since J-20 and Y-20 have reached service at least in 2019 according to official status. Which means if there is any truth to the hint, there is a fifth unknown program. Since GJ-11 seems relatively fresh and unlikely to have been in service for years, I doubt it's yet another UCAV unless this mysterious one is so much better, enough to carry the somewhat prestigious "20" designation while serving along the GJ-11. Maybe it's filling an entirely different role.

Could you not post some random fanboy speculation from Youtube? Its insanely stupid to have a nuclear-capable bomber to be unmanned at this juncture. Humans need to be in the loop. No, they must be in the loop.

H6K is a poor mans bomber

Superpowers have stealth bombers with ultra long range giving global strike

H20 gives global strike and also nuclear triad

massive step up in capability from China

its like going from a hand gun to a 155mm howitzer

H20 should send shivers down the spine of many countries

I hope we see it soon
Along with DF-41, Type 096, the H-20 will represent a complete modernization of China's nuclear triad.
