Everyone knows that China specializes in copying the world’s best products. However, China has never officially confessed that it has made a product by stealing a country’s technology. Recently, the People’s Liberation Army Airforce of China has released a recruitment video. In which Aaj Tak has shown the H-20 stealth bomber hidden in the eyes of the world. At first glance, this aircraft looks like the B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber of America. As it is, China’s track record cannot be denied that this aircraft was built by stealing American technology.
This video was released by the Chinese Airforce on 5 January
This recruitment video of PLAAF first appeared on YouTube on January 5, 2021. Through this video titled ‘Dream of Youth’, China is wooing its younger generation to recruit in the Air Force. These days, China is under stress with most of the world superpowers, besides America and India.
China is entangled with many countries in the South and the East China Sea on one side, including the US, Taiwan, Japan, Brunei, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Malaysia. On the other hand, his tension with India is well known in the Himalayan heights. In such a situation, President Xi Jinping is looking at the idea of making his airforce world-class.
China will deploy H-20 instead of H-6
According to a report by the defense technology watchdog Flightglobal, China is now planning to deploy the modern H-20 stealth bomber by removing its H-6 strategic bombers. Many experts have also feared that this Chinese aircraft, like its other aircraft, has been made by stealing technology. The pattern of this aircraft resembles that of the US B-2 and B-21 bombers.
Is this bomber powerful in China or really?
At the same time, a report by National Interest says that this Chinese aircraft still remains mysterious. While the US B-2 and B-21 bombers are combat proofs that have been tried in many wars and intelligence missions. In such a situation, this aircraft cannot succeed in posing any big challenge to America.
This aircraft was shown for the first time in 2019
China first showcased its mysterious H-20 bomber at the Zhuhai Airshow in 2019. At the same time, a New Zealand Herald report claimed that the H-20 supersonic stealth bomber could double China’s strike range. Interestingly, not much information about this aircraft is available on any platform yet.
