The DOD has said in its 2020 China Military Power Report that the H-6K is capable of carry a nuclear bomb. The nuclear weapon in question is already in the game.
DBID #1731 H-6K Badger [God of War] (China - 2011)
Please add a loadout with 1x DBID #2136 China Type 639-6 Strategic Bomb [3.3mT Nuclear]
I have two unrelated questions for the DB manager, the first of which is what the criteria is for requesting units that have little info about them, namely the Type 096 SSBN and the H-20 stealth bomber, is. Apparently, the Type 055 destroyer was added to the game when much about it was unknown too, and it was simply given characteristics from the Type 052D as a placeholder. In addition despite much being unknown about the Type 095 SSN, it has been added to the game very recently as well. Based on comparison between the F-22 and the J-20, it might be possible to create placeholder H-20 values by making it a sort of downgraded B-2. In the case of the Type 096, it could be an upgraded Type 094, while there are decently accurate predictions of the range of its new SLBM, the JL-3. When CMANO was first released, 2017, 2018, and 2019 were the "future" for scenarios made at the time of the release. Given the precedent created by the Type 055, I hope it will be possible to have units added with placeholder/estimate values, as the required information may take quite long to (or never) be released in the case of China, due to the geopolitical situation. Especially as the "future" for CMO scenarios becomes the mid and late 2020s.
My second question is what your stance on "ultra-hypothetical" units is and whether they can be requested or not. For example, the possibility of Japan acquiring nuclear weapons and/or ballistic missiles has been raised in recent years due to the threat of North Korea. Many predict a Japanese ICBM would be based on the M-V space launch vehicle. This is where the data values for a hypothetical Japanese ICBM unit could come from. An SSBN could be based on the Soryu class, etc. Suitable placeholder units exist in the DB for the most part, but particularly for the ICBM, a new unit would be better. Of course, the data for the units would be realistic, no record breaking speeds for aircraft, sci-fi weapons, or whatever.
All of these questions are in the context of potential requests for units I need for scenarios I plan to make.
