Russian TU-22mChinese websites are again reporting that Russia has agreed to sell Beijing the production line for the Tupolev Tu-22M3 bomber at a cost of $1.5 billion.

Once in service with the Chinese Naval Air Forces the Tu-22M3 will be known as the “H-10″.

The deal struck with Russia includes 36 aircraft: a batch of 12 followed by a second batch of 24 additional bombers.

The Tu-22 will be employed in the maritime attack role and used to attack targets from low levels to avoid radar detection.

The Tu-22 is a Soviet supersonic, swing-wing, long-range strategic and maritime strike bomber. It was developed during the Cold War and is among the closest things to a modern stealth bomber. However, it will get updated with indigenous systems and an extended range making it a significant threat to many latest generations weapon systems.

The Tu-22 bombers will give China another tool to pursue the area denial strategy in the South China Sea and the Pacific theatre; a fast platform to launch cruise missiles, conventional or nuclear weapons in various regional war scenarios.

    Sounds like China has not forgotten WWII, when you forget or rewrite history you are doomed to REPEAT it. The US is once again sticking its nose into Asian affairs, how many hundreds of thousands will die for corporate profits this time around? I say we take care of our own probleems FIRST!!!!

    China can raise an army of 200 million according to CIA Fact Book.

    A few million attacking our west coast would not even faze them.

    Lmfao…..:-) This bomber is so old and has many design flaws ! The ( USSR ) in case some of you younger pups cant remember what that means is ; UNION SOVIET SOCIALIST REPUBLIB ” . Russia could never develop a long range, low level penentrating bomber !!!!!! As to the report of being any type of ” Stealth ” ; The radar signature is like picking up a Aircraft Carrier 🙂 Still lmfao

      Yep, have to agree. There best bomber is still a turbo prop and you’ll here that damn thing about the same time it looms up on radar.

  • canuck

    Not sure how much they are used still but many of the Russian designs used tubes instead of transistors. These aren’t affected by EMP’s? Guess they’re not worried about it being detected if radar systems are offline by some preemptive strikes.

    If the US looks after its citizens ,there will be less trouble .There will be no need to tell China to fuck off.
    If the US continues to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries ie make more money for the mic,millions of people ,including Americans will die .
