President Xi Jinping has transformed the communist powerhouse’s armed forces into a force to be reckoned with on the global stage.

Speaking during a military assembly in the northern province of Hebei last month, Xi said: “[The military should] create an elite and powerful force that is always ready for the fight, capable of combat and sure to win in order to fulfill the tasks bestowed by the Party and the people in the new era.”

Tensions continue to rise across the globe as the once-remote possibly of another world war looms large, propelled by the United States’ increasingly tense stand-off with North Korea.

But if war was to break out, what military hardware could China rely on?

Daily Star Online takes a look at some of the Republic’s most advanced weaponry.

Hypersonic bomber

The as-yet-unnamed aircraft, which makes use of revolutionary new technology, was unveiled by Chinese scientists this week to huge fanfare.

It is designed in order to dramatically reduce the amount of air resistance on the aircraft, allowing it to fly at much greater speeds.

Two sets of wings combine to help cut drag and turbulence, meaning the hypersonic jet could fly at more than 3,700mph – or five times the speed of sound.

After news of the design breakthrough made its way online, an unnamed Chinese military aircraft designer told the South China Morning Post: “We’re talking about something like a hypersonic heavy bomber.

“It’s a crazy design, but somehow they’ve managed to make it work. It could lead to a huge step forward in hypersonic technology.”
