China’s new H-8 bomber

China's new H-8 bomber
China has been studied more than ten years of stealth strategic bombers – the H-8 cruise missiles, heavy bombers. In fact, the resident near Xi’an, people may already have some experience, when night fell, there will always see taking off from a nearby airport Yanliang large aircraft, driving a red, blue and green navigation lights, near Xi’an, sky flight, that is our new routine H-8 aircraft in flight (as distinct from the same time, flight of the H-6 aircraft, the flight was marked by significantly faster than the H-6 aircraft). I have personally seen, then, H-8 aircraft is what kind of aircraft? H-8 aircraft, have adopted what advanced technology?
China's new H-8 bomberThe new H-8 strategic bombers successfully developed in China in the FBC-1 (or H-7), the developed countries focus on developing the latest generation of stealth bombers. The time machine started to develop around the mid-nineties in the last century, central to the aircraft’s position is: heavy, no less than 18 tons of load of bombs, not less than 1.2 times the supersonic, stealth, carry a new cruise missile is able to hit the North American continent, a range of not less than 10,000 kilometers, with aerial refueling capability. The research task by the Xi’an Aircraft Design Institute and Xi’an Aircraft Manufacturing Co., Ltd. jointly to complete. The new H-8 aircraft, used mainly the following advanced technology and design:    1, BWB conventional aerodynamic layout. H-8 Why conventional aerodynamic layout? This is because the army has independently developed the first large-scale bomber before the bomber is just copying the former Soviet Union, there is no independent design concepts and design ideas, therefore, comprehensive consideration or use of the familiar design of trustworthy better. But also in the design of a large number of application of the latest technology, such as wing-body integration, fly-by, the second surface body design, front and rear edge mobile flaps, wing tanks and other large-scale integration of new technologies.
