Chinese aircraft carrier phase is still in factory trials take years fighting force behind the formation of
Chinese aircraft carrier now in the trials stage
Summary: just a carrier trials involving numerous types and technologies, “the Navy drama” opening. U.S. Jamestown Foundation, “China Brief,” Berg said editor Alan Slavin, China’s first aircraft carrier to really act as a balance weight of power in Asia will take several years, the earliest completion of the preliminary sea trials in the aircraft and aircrew staff are training.

high-profile platform for the Chinese aircraft carrier, “Kuznetsov” was 10, began its first trials. If the completion of the aircraft carrier was a newborn baby, then the trials can be said is that it has taken a “life first.” Chinese military experts LiuJiangPing 10 in “Global Times” said in an interview, in accordance with international practice, the main carrier of the first trials to test the performance of sailing ships, then go through a lot in this process, from service and even the formation of combat also need a long period of time.
“Laowa” still in factory trials stage
defined by the relative movement of the carrier trials is “the necessary equipment must be installed after the test “This center also involves three stages: the first phase of an aircraft carrier in the construction and modification during the trials, referred to as” factory trials “; followed by sea trials before military service, that” trials before Battle “; the entire aircraft carrier battle groups to complete the final battle force preparedness before the trials, it was known as the “fleet trials.” From all indications, the original factory in the Ukraine plant trials are not completed this step the “Kuznetsov” was, after 10 years of sun and rain and just more than five years after the re-outfitting the transformation, the plant trials is undoubtedly long and difficult.
According to reports, “Kuznetsov” is in the top 10 is out of the port tug. Jiang-Ping Liu said, more than 300 tons or more States Navy ships in general have taken such a departure when the tugboat pushing the top way. Because of the relatively small ports, large ships frequent acceleration and deceleration, forward reverse drive wear and tear for a great and huge fuel consumption, very economic. He said the carrier’s first sea trials, usually ships sailing performance testing, such as hull power, on the command bridge, watertight compartment tightness and radar navigation and communication system performance.
for the “Kuznetsov” the trials to go through the steps, perhaps from its sister ship, the Russian Navy, “Admiral Kuznetsov” number of trials during the “piece of a jigsaw.” It is involved in the “library” was the work of the Ukrainian Black Sea shipyard trials total construction division 伊万伊奥希 夫维奇维尼 Branch recalls, “library” was the project up to more than 1,100 plant trials, daily shipyards are 900 people to stay in the carrier, other collaborative units with 2,200 people. Of course, in different stages and the acceptance test project, the type and number of personnel has changed, when a cooperative unit to provide the system does not test this unit with people on land or on board the carrier’s protection break. In addition, from the Soviet Union Navy sailors and cadets have half of the trials on the ship, the number of about 1300 people. Wei Nike impressed, in for examination, “library” aircraft carrier aviation system, more than 100 research institutes from the Soviet red flag of the 8th military representatives of the aviation security system of each ship a screw are for demanding inspection.
served as plant trials after trials before the Trial and formation, mainly the ordering party — Navy aircraft carrier to be responsible for things. Served mainly in the former naval officer to trials to test the mechanical properties and command and communications aircraft, reconnaissance, fire, air system functions work, and with the air carrier aircraft support facilities also check the list, the limelight of the carrier machine landing trials in this phase. The formation of trials included in the Navy aircraft carrier is dishonorably discharged, follow the sequence of operations for joint training with the neighboring vessels.
the U.S. easily, Russia and France hard
in carrier trials, the U.S. has a very smooth and comfortable. And countries such as Russia and France during the carrier’s trials is relatively difficult.
began 40 years ago due out from the costumes, “Nimitz” class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier large, then the entire production line and the military training system has been in close contact to form a complete industrial chain, the U.S. aircraft carrier trials becomes easier. According to reports, the Russian aircraft carrier trials of the many projects to be tested, the U.S. aircraft carrier can be resolved only on the shore. Moreover, no American aircraft carrier comes as Russian aircraft carrier as a plethora of radar and missile equipment (American carrier-based aircraft adhere to the “source of all power”), the majority of technical equipment were all mature product, so it’s longer than trials Russian aircraft carrier to less than half, in recent years served as the “Ronald Reagan” “Bush” sign and other large aircraft are mostly only took about a year and a half of time trials.
compared to the Russian aircraft carrier trials are not as adept a. According to Russia’s “scholarly compilation of the Navy” magazine, design, construction and delivery of large aircraft requires less than 10 years or so, with the middle half of the trials. According to retired Russian admiral recalled, the Soviet Union and Russian aircraft carrier trials is a major feature of all carrier-based weapons firing live ammunition, as the fourth ship of the Soviet Union built fixed-wing aircraft carrier landing, “Baku” number (ie, sell to India’s “Admiral Gorshkov” number), the test sailed a total of 2195 hours, 16,496 sea miles, conducted 18 missile launchers, artillery firing aerial target 17 times, the water target 13 times, 10 land-based targets times, the test aircraft in the West is unthinkable, and thus see the Russian aircraft carrier construction and testing applications based entirely on the actual consideration.
As for the “European boss,” the French aircraft carrier trials of the road, go as hard and Russia. The only one French nuclear-powered aircraft carrier “Charles de Gaulle” in up to four years of testing with system reliability and carrier-based aircraft carrier has been plagued them of Fitness, November 2000, “de Gaulle” aircraft carrier in the North Atlantic voyage test for actually get lost a propeller blade, had to rely on a single oar to return Toulon Harbour.
Chinese aircraft carrier of the road has just begun
is just a carrier trials involving numerous types and technologies, “the Navy drama” opening. U.S. Jamestown Foundation, “China Brief,” Berg said editor Alan Slavin, China’s first aircraft carrier to really act as a balance weight of power in Asia will take several years, the earliest completion of the preliminary sea trials in the aircraft and aircrew staff are training.
The Chinese Navy Senior Colonel Jiang-Ping Liu said, it is undeniable that China and even the formation of combat aircraft from service will take some time, but the trials so that the road of China’s aircraft carrier has taken a solid step forward. ▲
