Description: The Tupolev Tu-16 was a subsonic, twin-engine, turbojet-powered medium bomber developed in the 1950s by the extinct Soviet Union as a replacement to Tu-4 bomber. Nicknamed Badger by Western intelligence it was mass produced totaling between 1,500 to 1,800 aircraft including more than 100 license built aircraft in China under H-6 designation. Powered by two AM-3 turbojets each rated at 21,000-lb was able to develop a top speed of Mach 0.95. The Tu-16 Badger was introduced as a tactical and nuclear bomber but soon thereafter new variants were developed to serve as tanker, maritime patrol, reconnaissance, electronic intelligence and jammer aircraft. The Tu-16 medium bomber first flew in 1952 and its deployment within the Soviet Union Air Force began in 1954. It was actively used by the Soviets in Afghanistan. These aircraft are provided with AM-23 23mm cannon at the rear fuselage for self-defense purposes only. The surviving Tu-16 aircraft were retired from service in the early 2000s.

The H-6K is an outstanding upgraded version incorporating composite materials and state-of-the-art avionics which first flew in 2007 and entered service in 2013, some claim earlier in 2009. The H-6K bomber is powered by two Russian-made D-30KP turbofan engines and features longer range compared with previous H-6 aircraft. Besides, the K model features a full glass cockpit, a more powerful radar, larger air intakes, extra fuel capacity and six underwing pylons. The newest Chinese bombers are being equipped with CJ-10 nuclear-capable cruise missiles, YJ-100 long-range subsonic anti-ship missiles and YJ-12 supersonic anti-ship missiles. The H-6K is deemed by the People's Liberation Army (PLA) as a truly strategic bomber comparable to those operated by the United States and Russia.
