China is developing a new-generation strategic bomber that will soon be presented to the public, China’s Air Force Commander Maj. Gen. Ma Xiaotian said.

BEIJING (Sputnik) — According to Ma, the Chinese air force’s strike capabilities have significantly increased over time.

“We are currently developing a new generation of strategic bombers, soon you will be able to see it,” Ma told the Global Times (Huanqiu Shibao) newspaper.

Ma gave no additional details on the new bomber.

Last year, China unveiled its Xian H-6K strategic bomber, a licensed copy of the Soviet Tu-16 aircraft. The H-6K is equipped with the DH-20 cruise missile, which gives the Chinese bomber the ability to hit targets located as far away as Australia.
