Really tough: four generations of tactical bombers debut
four generations of tactical bomber unveiled
the Korean military website Korean military defense network “published an article on August 2, 2012, the United States has announced that the F-35 message based on the research and development of next-generation bomber. The article believes that there is a serious bottleneck in future bomber development, resulting in the United States can not be developed in the F-35 on the basis of a whole new bomber. In view of this, China should be cautious development of stealth bombers. If China decided to develop stealth tactical bomber, the F -20 is an excellent platform for reference.

new U.S. bomber with China as the imaginary enemy
United States Global Strategic Network article of July 30, the U.S. Air Force in the next 15 years, research and development of a cost of about $ 550 million, a new stealth bomber can carry 6-10 tons of bombs flying about 9000 kilometers. The bomber will be a large number of existing technologies, this bomber essentially expanded version of the F-35 fighter. As a landmark, the United States basically completed the research and development of two fifth-generation fighter, the next stage or began the development of a new stealth bomber. And long ago, the United States declared out of balance China’s “anti-intervention/regional denial capacity considerations, stationed in Guam and the Asia-Pacific region will be the main strategic bomber B-1B and B-52 two active duty U.S. military. Thus, in the United States is gradually languished bombers seemed to usher in a “second spring”. But that may not be the case, only the United States will in the F-35 based on the research and development of new stealth bomber program, and its future is quite bleak.
from the United States after World War II bomber R & D point of view, in addition to the B-52, B-58, B-1B and B-2, including bombers, the most basic performance goals are effectively break through the the tight Soviet national air defense network, and by good tactical air defense troops to protect key targets effectively combat. Therefore, these U.S. bombers part or all have high payload, high-speed and stealth performance, if you put aside the cost factor aside, both the performance of these three which the maximum extent of a bomber who is best able to meet battlefield actual need models, while the B-2 is undoubtedly the best equipment. Although the Soviet Union has disintegrated over the years, but this time to face the United States in the Asia-Pacific is the rise of China, China has tight defense system did not lose in the then Soviet Union. Therefore, the terms of China as the imaginary enemy developed a new stealth bomber, the best mode is undoubtedly the continuation of the United States during the Cold War bomber ideological. F-35 is not only itself unable to take on this task, and almost any technology upgrade version not have this potential.

F-35 mount capability by two main magazine and two vice magazine restrictions, even if you want to reach the level of the early models of F-16 fighters (4500kg) almost impossible. F-35 as a model for the United States insists on stealth development principles, although with the ability to retrofitting conventional external pylons, but subject to the destruction of this great stealth performance, the United States is undoubtedly not as a fixed-configuration. Therefore, the new bomber by the F-35 a slight upgrade from the words, no doubt difficult to meet the 6-10 tons carrying missiles demand. But if the United States is a new framework of fighters and F-35′s existing technology research and development of a new bomber, technical difficulty will be significantly higher than the research and development of a new bomber. Because this pattern of development, the United States out of the so-called “technology – Universal reduce costs” principle, passive to the overall design to adapt to the F-35 fighter of the state is not stable at this stage, which will undoubtedly greatly increase the difficulty of the research and development of new bombers , even a repeat of the F-35, eventually leading to excessive emphasis on versatility leaving three models developed difficulty with the spiraling costs of the fighter dystocia consequences. Seemingly expensive 550 million stand-alone cost is likely just the final selling price of a fraction.
no need to develop stealth bombers
F -20 fighter more than the US-made F-22 and the Russian-made T- 50 of the body volume point of view, the cabin weapons mount capacity is likely to be strongest in the United States and Russia, the three heavy-duty fifth generation fighter. If China successfully developed on the basis of the F -20 fighter, the system FB-22 stealth tactical bomber similar to those of the United States, its impact will not be limited in the effective containment of China in the coastal waters of the U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups.
as early as during the Cold War, the world’s major Air Force National bomber future analysis. The reason is simple, land, sea and air nuclear forces of the three bases, relying on the fastest motor speed of the space-based nuclear bomber force, suffered battlefield survival rate for the first time after a nuclear strike but also more than a land-based nuclear forces, the power of space-based ammunition blow The effect is strongest in three basic nuclear forces. While the bomber to tactical purposes, and in turn caused a serious waste of resources. Ultimately, the United States has basically abandoned after the B-2 bomber research program directly retired once famous bomber of the Cold War era “3V”.
With the F-117 marked the emergence of stealth technology, the fate of the bomber has not improved, but confined to its own stealth capabilities bleaker prospects. In view of this, subject to the limitations of the the bombers application performance, care should be taken to develop stealth bomber.

Although the United States still exists. ” abandon the stealth bomber “sound, but the United States plans to deploy the B-1B and B-52 bombers in succession Asia Pacific should look at the actions of the rise of China, have a lot of the value of the bomber. Of China, however, this existence will face very limited, and thus there is a great application of the limitations of Chinese bombers. As we all know, the main role of U.S. bombers outside the range strike mission. For China, in the foreseeable period, China pursues a defensive national defense policy, there is no long-range attack outside the long-term goal of task. At the same time, there is a mistaken view that the long-range bombers to patrol the South China Sea. The reason is simple, Although China currently has full sovereignty over the South China Sea legal, but the actual situation in the South China Sea are entrenched with the intricacies of his country’s interests. Mount a large amount of ammunition, and even tactical nuclear bomber rashly or long-term patrol in the South China Sea, not only not conducive to the solution of conflicts, and may even complicate the South China Sea issue, ultimately more harm than good in the South China Sea. In view of this, in a foreseeable period of time, Chinese demand bombers is not obvious.
bomber stealth technology is applied, for China is also not a suitable choice.
well-known enemy bombers and fighters face detection type is different. The reason why the United States is keen on the outset application of radar stealth technology fighter aircraft, in fact, expect one’s own fighter occupy radar detection advantage in air combat with enemy similar fighters from enemy fighter facing enemy detection basically The party fighter airborne radar. Bombers completely different, it faced a large number of the enemy’s entire defense system, the performance of different multiple detection of several types of radar, stealth technology, almost does not exist in this environment to achieve completely stealth possible. If you take into account the bomber’s body volume is much larger than a fighter, not difficult to imagine the technical difficulty of the stealth bomber. As far as China is concerned, although to achieve a breakthrough in stealth technology through research and development of the F -20 fighter, but the inputs and application of stealth technology is far better than the situation of the United States, in the United States are not the fighter effective stealth case, China would like to rely on existing technology research and development of a true sense of stealth bombers, and technical difficulty can be imagined. If hastily putting in a lot of the technical and economic forces to carry out research and development, not only is very likely to fall into a “death spiral” of technology and cost, even if progress has been made, with the pre-investment will be very proportionate. In view of this, the stealth bomber is undoubtedly a need to be careful development equipment.
the well-known, tactical and strategic bombers. Although there is no strategic bombers for long pursued a defensive defense too much reality needs. However, in the present stage of China’s “ocean offensive and defensive strategy, tactical bombers, or will play a very important role. The reason is simple, With the emergence of special mixed fleet of Chinese aircraft carrier, the Chinese Navy, at least in the composition of the combat power to catch up with the United States, compared to the U.S. Navy but the purpose of the overall combat capability, undoubtedly there is still a large gap. In view of this, China and the United States Navy in China in offshore confrontations or conflicts, land-based naval aviation will continue to play a vital role in this process, a tactical bomber stealth performance will become effective deterrence against the U.S. fleet, especially the U.S. aircraft carrier equipment. Type of bomber stealth performance by relying on their own to resolve the interception of the U.S. Navy’s carrier-based aircraft, and the combination of high mobility and stealth performance will also enable them to make more excellent than fourth-generation fighter at low altitude sea-skimming penetration capacity, but its greater ability to mount than heavy fighters, combined with China has been in the forefront of the world anti-ship missile technology, stealth tactical bombers equipped with land-based naval aviation will undoubtedly become the People’s Liberation Army in the coastal waters in narrowing the gap between China and the United States Navy effective equipment. Existing technical level, the research and development on the basis of the F -20 stealth tactical bomber is the best practice.

Currently, the already recognized prototype Total two, although there is no direct manifestation of this aircraft magazine layout photos, but the F -20 fighter over US-made F-22 and the Russian-made T-50 airframe volume view cabin weapons mount capability is likely the strongest in the United States and Russia three heavy-duty fifth-generation fighter, do not mind if we take into account in mount plug and equipment necessary for the F -20, the ability to mount even with large payload said the fourth-generation heavy fighter-bomber (the maximum payload of the Russian-made Su-30MKK 12000kg, US-made F-15E The maximum payload 11700kg) compared to not strive.

in the process of developing new stealth tactical bomber, because of the type of fighter maneuverability is not as fighters then harsh so China can remove the front canard F -20 fighter, to be replaced by similar U.S. FB-22 fighter-bomber program large diamond-shaped main wing, while appropriate to increase the body’s volume, increase the volume of the magazine with the fuel tank, and then get more large payload and range, its technical objectives will basically reached the payload 10000kg combat radius of 2000-3000 km level. Simplify the performance of the fighter radar and avionics to complete basic flight navigation, real-time combat information sharing and ammunition guided prevail. The radar stealth performance without too much specialized research, to maintain the current S-shaped inlet F -20 fighter with stealth paint can.
If China successfully developed on the basis of the F -20 fighter stealth tactical bomber similar to the US-made FB-22, its impact will not be limited in the coastal waters of China in the U.S. aircraft carrier The formation effectively curbed, more important is that China can rely on excellent stealth tactical bomber stealth penetration and long-range strike capability, posing a grave threat to all of China’s territorial waters and as far away as Australia, all kinds of sea and land targets. In this case, the equipment prior to the Australian Air Force, with the ultra long-range strike capability F-111 fighters have all retired U.S. is constrained by a fifth-generation fighter technology continued dystocia, and can not decide whether future major development was fighters or unmanned fighter foreseeable period of time it is difficult to come up with a new, long-range strike and penetration ability stealth tactical bombers. South Korea and Japan and other countries, even if the technical support of the United States, apparently unable to reach the R & D level fighters and flush. Therefore, once China successfully developed in the F -20 fighter based on stealth tactical bomber, this aircraft in service at least in the Asia-Pacific region enjoyed 5-10 years of technology leadership and tactical advantage of relying on such equipment in the Asia-Pacific region to build strategic advantage, other countries, apparently in the short term is difficult to shake.
