Foreign media: a Russian aid, China’s nuclear bombers arise, Scatter!
Reliable sources confirmed that the defense industry this year, China should get 32 ??D30-KP-2 aircraft engines. Reported that China may use these engines and equipment H6K bombers, because it can carry a range of 2,000 km of cruise missiles and strategic bombers with nature, which the United States are very worried. Reported that the Russian defense industry an “authoritative source” that “despite the Russian Il-76 military transport aircraft on the broken contract, but the development of strategic relations between Russia for the consideration and hope to perform supplementary contract, that is, to the Chinese provided D30-KP-2 engines. ” Under the agreement, which is China’s Il-76 transport aircraft engine spare parts, but the source said: “We are very clear, the Chinese side attaches great importance to the supplemental contract, is prepared to use these engines because of their bombers for modernization.”
reported that sure, China has been using D30-KP-2 engines equipped with 1-2 frame H6K prototype, which types of bombers can carry six missiles with a range of not less than 2,000 km CJ10 air-based cruise missiles, which can let the Chinese air force with a nuclear retaliatory capability. That did not D30-KP-2 of this purpose and illusions. Under the original contract agreed to add that Russia will provide China with 240 D30 series engine, but after the first delivery, this figure was reduced to 32, apparently there was some worry about Russia. In addition, the United States also expressed deep concern about China’s production H6K bombers.
as D30-KP-2 engines delivery is delayed, H6K of full production from 2007 has been interrupted. But 32 new engine production line will enable China’s H6K restart. The assessment, at least 16 D30-KP-2 engines will be used to assemble H6K bomber, and the rest will be stored as spare parts. In other words, China can produce at least eight H6K, this play for its nuclear deterrent enough.
According to ITAR reports, the Russian Federal Military Technical Cooperation Bureau, deputy director of the first Alexander □ metformin on July 20 announced the Farnborough Air Show in England, Russia will be in the prescribed time limit within the performance of the contract to supply China with 55 sets of equipment for the Il-76 transport aircraft D-30KP-2 engines. He said: “We and China did not IL-76 aircraft on contract, but after promising to provide the supply of 55 units of this type of aircraft engine contract, the contract is currently in the discharge phase.”
