The Chinese H-6 was intended to serve as a medium-range bomber for delivering unguided ordnance over land and sea.

The H-6K is an advanced version of the older H-6 (which is a licensed version of the Soviet-designed Tu-16 bomber) that has new nose cone. The H-6K also has two larger engine intakes and three hardpoints installed on each wing.

Another distinction for the H-6K is the absence of separate tail and belly oscillating gun turrets that were permanent features on both the original Tu-16 and H-6.

The H-6K is designed for long-range attacks and stand-off attacks.
