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?
