Those Guam Okinawa based B-1's and F-22's are all meat balls if they as much as attempts to breach Chinese air space which would be sealed air tight in times of war and hostility if such hostility materializes between the US and China -- guaranteed.  
Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

Aerial refueling, now that is a very interesting topic unto itself - which usually gets little att ...

Well... We might not have any need to have our J-20's or whatever else is in the pipeline refueled in the middle of the Pacific because such distances does not post a threat to us anymore.

However, a perimeter of say... 200-400 nautical mile is a definite must and a necessary evil because, that is where carriers launch attacks at China. That is where the H-6U comes into play. An additional 200-400 nautical miles with aerial refueling would push these carriers out further to sea... say to between 400-800 miles as is opposed to 200-400.

Now, if hostility breaks, and if Z'land and Stralia will be used as bases for American hostility directed against China or against Chinese assets at sea (chance probably very very high here) or against Chinese bases in the region, say... Mr. GD's Singapore for instance , yes, both will be in range of the J-20 and of Chinese DF's and Chinese air and sea launch cruise missiles. We must make it in-range. We have to make it in-range. Because our security and survival is dependent on it if the two are turned into a threat to us.

No way MALAYA, SINGAPORE, NEW ZEALAND or AUSTRALIA going to be used as LOGISTIC BASE for a

.....CHINA THEATER battle!
It'll be likelier to be BASES on Luzon island, Taiwan, Korea or Japan.
Ships sailing to resupply the 7th fleet from the closer base is more appropriate.
The bases can be supplied via the AMERICAN AIR LOGISTICS.

Cheerios!

With aerial refueling, J-8 (later upgrades), it is suggested, can now enjoy the luxuries of those  ...
Bottom line: With a given and strategically defined and secured air space secured by Chinese air superiorit fighters with no concern of interference/interuptions from enemy fire or penetration over a given period of operational time in space, Chinese H-6U/DU's definitely won't be no clay pigeons that you have visualized, nor will they need to settle for Kamakazi tactics -- if they are required, strategically to take out targets which prove a security anomamly to China or to Chinese forces in the region, even if these targets are NZ, Australia, Guam, Japan, Okinawa, Mubie, wherever, as need is the mother of all creations, NZ and Australia is breachable!


Given that there is not interdiction and or prosectution of said "bombers" and refuelling aircraft, NZ and Australia are breachable, yes. It can be guaranteed, however that there will be such interdiction and not necessarily on the J-20. The interdiction will take place against those fat juicy tankers they rely on! When that happens, the J-20 becomes nothing more then a kamikaze if the pilot is so briefed or inclined, or an expensive coffin.

Yes, China's air superiority fighters can operate, with impunity, in uncontested skies but, why do you assume (correct me if I'm wrong) that the skies will be uncontested?

Wow... because how you distinguish friend from foe in aerial combat is by sight and how the plane looks. I am talking to an ignorant.


And electronic IFF.
