China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

China is likely to un­veil one of its most an­tic­i­pated weapons soon, a new-gen­er­a­tion long-range bomber, avi­a­tion in­dus­try ob­servers said amid dis­clo­sure of the plane’s ap­pear­ance by its de­vel­oper on May 8. Avi­a­tion In­dus­try Corp of China, the na­tion’s lead­ing air­craft maker, dis­played a front view of what ap­pears to be a fly­ing-wing air­craft con­cept at the end of a pro­mo­tional video. The video was pub­lished on its WeChat ac­count to mark the 60th birth­day of Xi’an Air­craft In­dus­try, an AVIC sub­sidiary in Shaanxi province that is China’s ma­jor builder of bomber air­craft.
