September 17 website china-defense.com at the forum offers information about Chinese developments 2-bombers, strategic focus of the new generation. It is not clear from the article one is engaged in the development of bombers, one company or independent of each other by different companies. These research activities have spread information military experts at Li Xiaoning (Li Xiaoning) and Dinshen Ma (Ma Dingsheng).
Li Xiaoning states that traditional languid listed bombers Tu-95 and Tu-160 Russian and South American production of the B-52. These aircraft are "flawless platforms" for bombing enemy targets far beyond the bounds of the zone acts of his defense. In China, a fundamentally new bomber developed by two methods — H-8 (method "flying wing") and N-9 (or H-10 — supersonic bomber aerospace technology destination "weft"), available as H-6 ( a copy of the Tu-16) is very out of date, and requests the change. According to Chinese experts, in the near future there will be a fundamentally new, "revolutionary" plane.
Ma Dinshen reports that the most important tasks for China's strategic bombers destination — a struggle against enemy aircraft carriers and application of ground targets point-nuclear attacks. The new bomber in its own missile arsenal should have an instrument with a range of up to 1,000 km, so that the air defense of the enemy could not strike a blow aimed. Chinese technological equipment behind the U.S. for 20-30 years, admits Ma Dinshen. H-6 was created in the 60 years of the twentieth century. For the base was taken by Russian Tu-16. This bomber definitely outdated, since the very will take on enemy radar equipment. Drawback is its small and weapons load and range flight. That's why the chances to break through the enemy's air defenses are low, and therefore, according to military spec, we just have to do bomber the last generation that will change the obsolete H-6.
Next Dinshen Ma says that China will not copy the Russian TU-160 and South American B-1 and B-2, and in this field will give their preference to their development. His outlook on this issue is: "Innovative High bomber N-9 has to fly in the atmosphere, so climb on suborbital altitude. The equipment of such an aircraft enters a combined power plant with 4 engines improved "Taikhan" for atmospheric flight, also with 2 special rocket engines for the ability to fly at heights above 100 km beyond the atmosphere. On this basis, the aerodynamic method of the aircraft will be radically different from the existing one. According to spec, in the form of aircraft will remember ballistic missile, with a low aspect ratio wing on a "duck." The equipment will include airframe and all-aspect system of observation. Boarding the aircraft will be made of composite materials-based carbon fiber. The internal weapons bay will take six cruise missiles with satellite and radar-guided. On the outer pylons is also impossible suspension missiles.
Bomber H-9 will produce a rise in ordinary military airfields. In the atmosphere will reach speeds of up to 2.3 M, and the climb 15,000 m followed by the inclusion of ramjet engines that are able to bring the airplane to an altitude of 100 km above sea level. Upon reaching a height such plane will be able to increase speed to 8 M, very rapidly reach the outskirts of the enemy and terrain to put missile and bomb strikes on targets. Landing in the airport's own N-9 will perform a normal plane with the introduction of turbofan.
Its main plane flying time will be outside of the atmosphere, because control of the aircraft will be through the on-board systems that are directly connected with the satellite constellation. In the arsenal of N-9, and will include the so-called "smart" missiles, which themselves will be able to go out on a target without interference from electronics bombers.
Ever since 1995, China has developed a strategic bomber FBS-1 (Hong-7). Its design features — weapons load of more than 18 tonnes, a large flight speed of 1.2 M, the arsenal of the aircraft had to go new cruise missile with a range of over 10,000 km. Designed and refuel in the air. While China is trivial tried to play Russian Union of technology in this field. Formed his own design school was not, says Ma Dinshen. Now in China, there is already a good design base, and because the new bomber will be developed on the basis of the most advanced aerodynamic schemes and technologies.
In the development of promising bombers according to the H-8 ("flying wing") are widely used and studied stealth technology. "Flying Wing" has unique qualities in reducing infrared and radar signature. The engines are located deep inside the plane, this is achieved thanks to an unexpected decrease of the EPR and IR signatures. Such plane virtually no "seams" and looks fantastic, says La Xiaoning.
Extensively used in the construction of aircraft composite materials based on carbon fibers. Through the use of these materials may be lower airframe weight, volume increment of fuel, and, as it should, the likely increase combat payload and range of its flight. In addition, these materials possess beautiful stealth properties. The equipment of the aircraft will enter the digital system control computer software, which will change the hydraulic machine. In bortovik entered the necessary data for an upcoming flight, which will significantly reduce crew workload.
Arsenal will consist of 6 CD Red Bird-3 ("Red Ptah-3") with the sighting range of up to 3,000 km, 6 missiles will still be installed on two external pylons. As can be seen, the airplane in the general difficulty is able to carry up to 12 CD. Also bomber instead of the CD can be equipped with different types of bombs and precision missiles. In the refinement of the aircraft will enter the most advanced avionics and electronic warfare system. This coming new versions of the aircraft can be applied plasma stealth technology.
Great enthusiasm given to the study of the most advanced radar-absorbing materials. In China, the current time created a new generation of PRM. This coating not only reduces the ESR plane, but greatly reduces the effect of radiation and airborne radar systems of the aircraft.
4 new turbofan aircraft will enable the H-8 to produce a supersonic cruising flight at 1.4 M, but not in the air refueling, range flight can be achieved and 11,000 km. This would mean, as if the purpose of the strategic bomber, taking off from an airfield in Heylutszyane, has the ability to rocket attacks on at least some of the target in the United States.
