China’s People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) released a video that showed nuclear-capable H-6 bombers attacking what appeared to be US’ Andersen Air Force Base in Guam.
Reuters reported that the video, titled, “The god of war H-6K goes on the attack!” is about two minutes long and has dramatic music. The video, released on Saturday on the People’s Liberation Army Air Force Weibo account, came as China carried out the second day of drills near Taiwan, to express outrage at the visit of a senior U.S. State Department official to the island nation.
Guam is home to major U.S. military facilities, including the airbase, which would be key to responding to any conflict in the Asia-Pacific region. The Chinese air force’s two minute and 15-second video, set to solemn, dramatic music like a trailer for a Hollywood movie, shows H-6 bombers taking off from a desert base. The video is called “The god of war H-6K goes on the attack!”
Recently, as EurAsian Times reported, the new H-6 Bombers made their appearance in the South China Sea (SCS) and practiced attacks on surface ships, long-distance strikes beside night landings, and surveillance missions.
As per reports from the Chinese state-run Global Times, this was the first time the H-6 bombers were revealed by the military. During the practice, the new H-6 bomber was also joined by the H-6G bomber as both planes displayed their prowess over the contentious waters of the South China Sea.
