In August, the Olympic security work in the air, the Air Force organized an unprecedented 40 air sky Zhongda patrol … …
from the introduction of weapons and equipment to independent research and development system across the trend was
60 years of innovation and development, the Chinese Air Force in the completion of a backward agricultural society based on the construction of the Air Force, in the developed industrial society based on the construction history of information technology across the Air Force twice, was a weapons system across trend.
60 years ago, the Air Force aircraft participated in the founding ceremony by reading no one is made. Chinese Air Force at the start, only seized from the hands of the Japanese invaders and the Kuomintang left the United States, Japan, Britain and other countries made more than 20 old model 159 aircraft.
during the Korean War, the Chinese Air Force to fight in the front, rear also stepping up construction of its own aviation industry. July 1954, “CJ -5″ in Nanchang aircraft have been successfully developed, the Chinese aviation industry to create a turning point from the repair. Have been copied out after the F-5, F-6, Yun-5, straight-5, H-5, H-6 and other aircraft, and the red flag on the 1st, 2 surface to air missile and Charlie on the 1st-air missiles, self- developed a CJ-6 and Q-5 aircraft.
20 1980, the U.S. F-15, F-16 and Su-27 marked Russia’s third-generation combat aircraft and gradually become the main force of the air, the Chinese air force F-6, F -7 for the main types of aircraft, defense has been far from satisfying the needs of modern weaponry, advanced fighters and the international widening gap.
20 Since the 1990s, the Air Force to enter the period of rapid growth, gradually fitted out a third-generation combat aircraft, surface to air missiles and a number of third-generation information technology more advanced weaponry. 1999 National Day military parade, the first three generations of aircraft Su-27 public display, showing the rapid development of important results.
2006 year, new aircraft made the first public appearance of the J-10, marking the Chinese aviation industry and weapons development capabilities to achieve the milestone of crossing, China has independently developed a world-class fighters have the ability.
the 60th anniversary of the parade, from early warning aircraft, the tanker to the F -10, F -11, hundreds of planes to the Chinese Air Force advanced fighter of all-domestic portfolio, declared a new era by leaps and bounds achievement.
60 years, the Chinese air force weapons and equipment to achieve from the introduction to independent research and development across. The rapid expansion of China-made weapons and equipment types, system support, and close to or reach the world advanced level. In particular, the successful development of the J-10, making China one of the few independent research and development one of the three generations of machines, Air Force 60 years in construction and development of China’s history, for the first time through independent research and mastery of advanced weaponry, one of the world of Air Force weapons development forefront.
step construction of the five branches of the whole territory with a new level of integration of combat capabilities
after 60 years of construction, the Chinese Air Force has developed into the air, ground and air missile troops, antiaircraft artillery, airborne, radar, communications and other combined arms strategy military services, with a strong air defense and air offensive capability, certain long-range precision strike, and strategic projection.
Air Force is the main body of the Chinese Air Force, including fighter aviation, air assault, bomber, transport aviation, air reconnaissance and early warning, refueling, electronic warfare, search and rescue and other specialized aviation units. Into the new century, according to the offensive and defensive strategic requirements of the Chinese Air Force efforts to enhance the information under the condition of the air offensive capability, long-range precision strike capabilities and strategic projection capabilities, integration with the capacity to fight the whole territory.
past decade, with a new series of foreign air defense weapon system and the introduction of automated command system, made the successful development of new air defense weapons, the Chinese air force soldiers have been developed into a surface to air missile with a high altitude, far Department of short-range anti-aircraft fire with a modern high-tech arms, information warfare capability significantly enhanced, with a certain amount of anti-missile capability and the ability to fight multiple targets, starting from air defense to aerospace defense transformation.
Chinese Air Force airborne is a combined arms, prepared with infantry, artillery, aviation, communications, reconnaissance, engineering, chemical defense and other 27 professional branches. Currently, the paratroops have been able to develop into a full range of rapid movement, in a variety of complex terrain conditions into the organic airborne, long-range assault force independent operations.
after 60 years of development, the Chinese Air Force radar across the country to build a more rigorous radar network, established to carry out various tasks of the joint air situation early warning and detection systems, basic with a global detection , full-frequency, multi-dimensional space, multi-class targets.
Air Force Signal Corps is responsible for Air Force communications, to protect an important branches of the military command of the Air Force. Whether it is combat, exercise, training or routine work and respond to emergencies, are inseparable from the Signal Corps on duty day and night. Currently, the Air Force Signal Corps with FM, shortwave, microwave, satellite communications and other means of communication to achieve a communication network covering the whole territory, where planes fly, voice and digital information can be passed to the where.
addition to the five branches of the Chinese Air Force, the main branches of the military also electronic warfare troops, anti-chemical warfare and so on. Soldiers equipped with electronic jamming electronic warfare aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles and anti-radiation missiles, and radar countermeasures equipment, communications equipment and optoelectronic countermeasures against the equipment. Held in China’s nuclear tests in the previous task, the Chinese Air Force anti-chemical troops took on the air radiation measurement, nuclear test clouds and aircraft decontamination sampling and other tasks.
establish “air and space, both offensive and defensive,” the Air Force strategy
current operations under conditions of informatization center of gravity shift from ground to space, space one combat is the world’s military powers of the basic means of waging war. To seize the strategic high ground, the Chinese Air Force to accelerate the transition from territorial air defense to both offensive and defensive changes, from mechanization to information spanning from the air to air and space-based development, established the “air and space, both offensive and defensive” strategy of the Air Force to establish a line with the development needs of the space age of air forces.
from the late 1970s, several hi-tech local wars through the smoke, people began to re-examine the Air Force Air Force’s position in the role of modern warfare and started from a simple defense to emphasize the overall attack offensive defensive direction. 90′s, People’s Air Force to accelerate the upgrading of weaponry and training reform, from the preparation system, weapons, personnel structure to the training guidelines, began a comprehensive transformation of the offensive and defensive, the overall force level of the building has undergone a qualitative change, both offensive and defensive air force, the ability to deal with local wars are fully enhanced.
1994 In October, the Air Force first organized high-tech air offensive campaign training exercise, participating units using a variety of weapons, to interference, suppression, blockade and destroy the other means of attack, in multi-dimensional fields to the “enemy” to launch a joint attack, marking the Air Force from “air-defense” to “both offensive and defensive,” change has taken solid steps. October 1998, the Air Force for the first time in the form of a remote computer on a distributed network system, successfully carried out a high-tech indoor air campaign maneuvers, in order to achieve from the “map to talk about soldiers” to “line drill “a historic leap.
entered a new historical period, according to the strategic transformation needs, according to the Chinese Air Force “air and space, both offensive and defensive,” the Air Force strategy to actively promote the training of information technology to further focus. In 2001, the Air Force to establish “close combat, outstanding against, from the difficult and strict, science and technology training,” the guiding ideology of military training, military training gradually to the base, simulation and network development; 2006, the Air Force to carry out “full all installed fine deep training training “activities, military training toward a new era of accelerating change.
Chinese Air Force now has a primary air and space combat capability. Air force unit of a long interview that Air Force fighters now range far more than the number of air changes in the information very quickly. “We can say that now we a fighter pilot in the aircraft to obtain the display of the battlefield situation than in the past a theater commander can master even more, faster.” Some experts pointed out that this is the initial access to the information the Chinese Air Force the threshold of the combat. The construction of this system, it is the Air Force has been doing in recent years, but also the future of the Chinese Air Force need to continue to strengthen.
