Photos have emerged of the latest Chinese version of the venerable Tu-16 bomber.  Apparently it has been adapted to carry an air -launched version of the DF-21 ballistic missile.  The apparently necessitates removal of the bomb bay.  Noted in the picture leading the article that the aircraft pictured is carrying the upgraded version of the old “Silkworm” version of the Russian “Styx” missile as well. I believe this is a version of the C-603 missile.
