China‘s H-18 Stealth Bomber

An US military photo website carries a report on China’s plan to build the H-18 stealth bomber, which is a stealth fighterbomber instead of a strategic bomber.

The bomber is 28 to 30 metres long, much smaller than the US B-1B’s 44 meters length.

According to foreign military fans’ speculation, the H-18 has a range of 8,000 to 9,000 km and a maximum combat radius of 3,500 to 3,700 km, a speed of Mach 2 and a load of weapons of 12 to 15 tons.

It has an inside weapon cabin 8 metrs loeng for 72 100kg Leishi small precision-guided bombs or 4 Changjian-10A cruise missiles that may carry out tactical or nuclear attack at Guam.

It may also carry 4 Yingji-12 supersonic anti-ship missiles or 4 Jingji-100 super long-range anti-ship missiles to destroy an aircraft carrier.

It has adopted lots of stealth technology to become the world’s first stealth fighter-bomber and stealth supersonic bomber.
