The Xian H-6 strategic bomber is a licence-built version of the Soviet Tupolev Tu-16 strategic bomber built for the Air Force of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Air Force. The Xi’an Aircraft Industrial Corporation signed a licence production agreement with the USSR to build the type in the late 1950s. Since then, the bomber has been repeatedly modernized. The latest version is the Xian H-6K capable of carrying air-launched cruise missiles.

    I believe with the tech the Chinese have today, it should not be that hard for them to copy TU160 or even B2 bomber, if only they get their hands on the “Blueprints”.

      With the Su-27 China had an import deal with Russia, but then started manufacturing unlicensed copies as the J-11B, and then continued with a totally unlicensed copy of the carrier borne Su-33 as the J-15. Sukhoi were not impressed. Though, unlicensed copies come with own problems, the indigenous Chinese engine used in these copies is far inferior to the Russian supplied power-plant.

        Okay, I got it, the problem the Chinese have now they might het it corrected by time. That’s the rule of invention, you get it wrong, then you improve. And also, maybe not in the short time.
