The JH-7A Feibao is a SEAD aircraft available to China. It first appears in Wargame: Red Dragon.

HistoryEdit

The JH-7A Feibao is a twin-engine, two-seat, supersonic multi-role fighter developed by Xi'an for the Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force and Navy. Its genesis started in the early 1970's, when the PLAAF established the requirement for a new fighter-bomber to replace the H-5 and and Q-5 (Chinese produced variants of the Il-28 and MiG-19, respectively). Authorized to begin in 1983, the JH-7's first prototype flew in 1988 and the JH-7 was introduced to PLANAF arsenals in 1992. The JH-7A is an improved variant of the baseline JH-7, with equipment for the precision strike role, a stronger airframe for higher weapon carriage capacity, new avionics and radar, and compatibility with precision-guided and anti-radar weapons. It was introduced into PLAAF and PLANAF arsenals in 2004.

OverviewEdit

The JH-7A Feibao is a prototype SEAD aircraft available to Chinese and Red Dragon decks. It carries an internal GSh-6-23 gatling-type cannon, four Yingji-91 antiradar missiles and four PL-8 fire-and-forget air to air missiles. This armament allows the JH-7A to defend itself against enemy fighters while it is en-route to its operating area, as well as enemy helicopters operating within its vicinity. The gun allows the type to strafe troops and lightly armored vehicles. The Yingji-91 has exceptional range, AP power and accuracy. It is able to destroy even heavily armored anti-aircraft vehicles. The JH-7A's ECM is good, perhaps slightly weak for a SEAD aircraft, however, the type also features Medium stealth, making it more survivable when engaging enemy SAM sites.

The major drawbacks of the Feibao are its cost and the performance of its PL-8 missile. At 160 points per aircraft, the Feibao's loss provides significant points to the opposing force. Also, while the type does carry air-to-air missiles for defense, the PL-8 is only useful for short range engagements, leaving the JH-7A vulnerable to attack by fighters with long-range radar-guided missiles. As such, a fighter escort should still be considered when sortieing the JH-7A if enemy aircraft are anticipated.
