The following image, found by Chinese military aviation expert Andreas Rupprecht, shows the shape of what could be a future Chinese stealth bomber plane.
True or false? A model plane or just the base of a future radar evading attack plane?
Hard to say.
For sure, the shape of this alleged LRS (long range strike) stealth aircraft is intriguing and shows input from several existing U.S. planes, including the F-117 Nighthawk and the YF-23. Furthermore, some of Beijing’s works were leaked in the form scale models during local exhibitions hence, even if unlikely, it is not completely impossible that the one depicted in the photographs and artwork above is the Chinese answer to the Russian sixth-generation pilotless strategic bomber based on the PAK-DA or the American X-51, Falcon HTV-2 and other hypersonic development programs on which U.S.’s perspective strike capability will be based.
China is working a lot on stealth planes.
Last month, few hours before the U.S. Navy launched the the Northrop Grumman X-47B unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) demonstrator off the deck of an aircraft carrier for the first time, images of China’s first weaponized stealth drone emerged from the Chinese Internet.
The airplane shown may be the dark colored stealth J-28 that flew several hours at mach 6 speed and landed on September 18,2015.I think it used two Wang Zhengou turbo-scram et engines and Shou-En Zhu low cost grapheme alloy airframe.I do not under estimate the zeros that bomb Pearl Harbor.
The black model airplane looks like the airplane that flew on September 18,2015 at mach 6 speed for several hours and landed according to CCTV-13 and reported by two newspapers that was quickly censor.The yellow model looks like the H-11,hybrid bomber (the light of five stars) that used four Wang Zhenguo turbo-scram jet to obtained mach 6 speed then a rocket will send it into near space for 3.5 months at mach 10 speed.
