Satellite imagery shows that China has developed new stealth bomber. The new mystery Chinese bomber was spotted at a research facility in the city of Chengdu.

The mystery Chinese aircraft similar to the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit and X-47B unmanned combat air vehicle. Some source said that this aircraft is the Xian H-20 heavy long-range strategic bomber.

In September 2016, the Ministry of National Defense of the People’s Republic of China has confirmed that the next-gen long-range bomber is under development.

“We are now developing a new generation of long-range bomber, and you’ll see it in the future,” said Commander of the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) of China Ma Xiaotian.

Analysts noted that the new type bomber may enter service by 2025, and will seek to replace China’s existing fleet of Xian H-6K bombers.
