First in service photo of H-6K, "god of war, with a small g"

It appears that the PLAAF's latest ALCM carrier, the H-6K, has finally entered service with the 8th Bomber Division.  Each H-6K is powered by a pair of Russian D-30KP-2 designed to carry up to 6 CL-10 ALCM, a major improvement over the older M model.

Yup, old Tu-16s never die, they just become ALCM carriers.


On a related news, the fifth batch of 11 D-30-KP-2 engines was delivered on March 25th.

环球网记者仲伟东3月25日报道,据俄新社消息,俄罗斯“土星”科研生产联合体新闻处发布消息称,该企业将在今年3月末以前向中国供应最后一批,也就是第5批11台D-30KP-2军机发动机。


俄罗斯国防出口公司与中国在2009年签署了供应55台该型号发动机的合同。合同还规定,俄罗斯生产企业将在保修期内提供技术支持。


消息指出:“预计今年3月末之前将完成最后一批D-30KP-2发动机的供应。”之前的4批发动机分别在2009年11月,以及2010年3月、5月与10月交付中方。
