Russia says U.S. may no longer be held Chinese Su-27 fighter generic problem
Data for: F-11B fighter-made bomb hanging off
LONDON Dec. 14, 2007: According to the Russian military news network reported on December 13, United States, “Wall Street Journal,” the article claimed that on December 7, achievements of China’s aviation industry is largely generic and is closely related to the Russian fighter. Many experts believe that this assessment is “the blinders to see the forest,” because great progress in China’s aviation industry in the development of China-made fighter has many unique features, and even Russia itself may no longer pursue the issue of the Su-27 Chinese imitation.
U.S. media pointed out that the Soviet Union, Russia desperately short of funds for the start of a large number of arms sales to China, including the Russian Air Force Su-27 proud fighter. China’s imports of such weapons is to imitation, including radar and avionics equipment, its peak is a generic engine, the Su-27 F-11B is a simple imitation. But the fact that some Western media, military, Russian fighter F-11B is not a simple analog product. Australia’s “Air Power” magazine that the Chinese fighter, there are many unique structure, is the original product, it is not that these planes are normal clone. Although the airframe and engine are similar, but the installation of a Chinese fighter HUD completely different diffraction, infrared search and track system and glass cockpit and other unique components.
But more interesting is that, for this issue, Russia is how to think. A few years ago the Russian media have reported that Sukhoi CEO Pogosyan has stressed: “Russia will never raise the issue to China and we believe that China has the ability to start production of components made U.S. experts deliberately hype the issue, Russia and China attempt to sow discord the West (in this regard) manufacture a large noise, the purpose is to combat the Russian military equipment producers’ interests. “
In fact, Chinese and Russian cooperation in the field of aviation have a long history. The Soviet Union was to provide technical assistance to China, to organize production at the time the more advanced F-6 (MiG -19) fighter. After the F-7 (MiG-21) fighter was mainly in the efforts of Chinese industrial production began to achieve self-reliance policy of the aviation industry. F-8 is almost entirely self-developed products in China, and then developed the JF-17 and F-10, indicates that China has been developed in the modern fighter has their own design and manufacture of large self-potential. China is currently developing a new generation fighter aircraft, it will be great progress of China’s aviation industry is all about. Reason to believe that China will soon be able to reach the world advanced level in the field. (Compiled: Shu-shan)
