Model Description

Air Force One 1/72nd scale AF1-0167 Xian H-6K Badger PLAAF China. Available to pre-order at Flying Tigers.

 

The Xian H-6 is a licence-built version of the Soviet Tupolev Tu-16 twin-engine jet bomber, built for China’s People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF).

Delivery of the Tu-16 to China began in 1958, and a licence production agreement with the USSR was signed in the late 1950s. Xi’an Aircraft Industrial Corporation (XAC) manufactured aircraft at Xi’an as the “H-6”; the first flew in 1959. By November 2020, the PLAAF had as many as 231.

The latest version is the H-6N, a heavily redesigned version capable of aerial refueling and carrying air-launched cruise missiles. According to United States Department of Defense, this will give the PLAAF a long-range standoff offensive air capability with precision-guided munitions.
