BEIJING: China is developing a new long-range bomber, the head of the Chinese air force was quoted as saying in state media on Friday, the latest move in its ambitious military modernisation programme.
China has already improved its ability to strike at targets far from home and there will be further improvements in the future, the Global Times quoted air force chief Ma Xiaotian as saying at an air force open day.
"We are now developing a new generation of long-range bomber, and you'll see it in the future," Ma said, according to the paper, without elaborating.
China has been ramping up research into advanced new military equipment, including submarines, aircraft carriers and anti-satellite missiles. This has rattled nerves regionally and in Washington as China takes a more muscular approach to territorial disputes in places such as the South China Sea.
The air force, which has for years relied on large numbers of Chinese copies of Russian aircraft, is now also developing its own stealth fighters. In July, it put into service a new, domestically developed large transport aircraft.
Ma said the air force had entered into a "transformation" stage, changing its focus from quantity to quality, the report said.
MODI WILL PEEEEEEEEE NOW............HAHAHAHAHHAHA

It is obvious that the Chinese Consider the USA as their target.
China is truly amazing... One fine day, they will sell fighter jets to America. Then india will be competing with Bangladesh for its military powers
target practice for Indian air force!
It''s a wake up call for India. We are lagging behind in defence need to do a lot of catching.
A "Made in China" bomber will probably bomb itself before reaching its target. The Chinks are only good at copying.
this was all in the cooking for the last 10 years in China while India under Congress was busy looting and selling our own nation and see the results. what Modi is doing now shud have been done 15 years ago. better late than never.. long live Modi . Jai Hind
The arch rival of China is USA.
However the ambitious Chinese armed forces may use South Asian countries for target Pracitise.
More you are advanced more you are unhappy because your mind becomes idle and thinks only destructions. In stead of doing some creative work for humanity, world is drawing towards destructive researches only! What''s use of long range bombers? It proves ill motive of China and can''t be trusted at all.
