Chinese says its H-6K strategic bomber that can attack US military bases in South Korea as well as the Japanese mainland using long range nuclear cruise missiles.

“With a range of between 1,500 and 2,000 kilometers, the CJ-10 meets the requirements of the PLA Air Force to possess the capability to launch strategic missile attacks against US military facilities and those of its allies in the Western Pacific,” a report by the Want China Times says.

The article also lauds the fact that the H-6K can target the Japanese mainland without even leaving Chinese airspace, in addition to Russian cities in the far east, all major cities in India, as well as Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines, “in a potential war against Southeast Asian neighbors over territories in the South China Sea.”

“An H-6K taking off from the air base of the PLA’s 10th air division in Anqing, Anhui province, would be able to strike at all US military bases in South Korea,” states the report, noting that “the long-range cruise missile has become a crucial part of China’s nuclear arsenal.”

Earlier this month, a PLA military website bragged that China’s first aircraft carrier combat task force was close to rivaling the US Navy.

China’s moon landing program was also used as a reminder of Beijing’s growing military capabilities, with one state media report discussing plans to turn the moon into a Star Wars-style “death star” from which the PLA could launch missiles against any target on Earth.

A display to promote China’s Jade Rabbit Moon rover also included a background photograph of a mushroom cloud over Europe, a startling detail which some have interpreted as an indication that Beijing’s space program is a cover for the militarization of space.
