in thousands of scientific and technological elite, the body at the rank he has emerged as the equipment on the front of the “missile doctor”; in a second live firing, missile transporter and other nick critical juncture, with his extraordinary courage and decisive troubleshooting risk-elimination. He is chief engineer of the Second Artillery Base Repair Factory Zhou.
strategic missile, the country’s “sword”, not “health” status and good performance, it is difficult to freely roam the nine days. For the missile as a “pulse” of the people, Zhou joined the army 20 years, has participated in live firing, special equipment repair, transit and other major airframe support tasks, on-site to solve all kinds of more than 6500 times the size of failure, major failure of danger exclude 21 since awarded the second class 2 times, third class 3 times.
one thousand cut Pu jade, a hundred iron into steel. In September 1996, Zhou Wenzhong, to participate in a particular model fledgling missile launch training support tasks. Launched on the eve of the missile bay can not be with the sudden appearance of major faults the vertical bounce. Zhou and others busy for a whole day did not troubleshooting. In desperation, had to call thousands of miles away to the manufacturer for help.
this deeply hurt his heart: how can the future of the battlefield with “nanny” battle. Since then, he determined, must master the skills of excellent service!
isolated from the cold quiet of the missile launch site back to motorcycles roar of the plant operation, Zhou quiet life is broken. His grasp of all available bits of time to “recharge” to understand the entire missile system and circuit design principles, he used live ammunition firing, check out of the box, equipment repair and other opportunities, met with five experts, research institutes, 12 Professor correspondence established contacts carefully to their opinion … …
just two years, Zhou mastered several models of missiles and special equipment installed 20 different types of general maintenance skills, summed up more than 200 Common Faults and exclusion method example, has nearly a million words to write “a missile launch pad repair specification model” and other professional books to address the lack of standardized military training materials, based on lack of checks and other problems.
missile transporter perform tasks in a way, the sudden appearance of a trailer wheel steering tie rod failure can not be broken, immediately close to the organization of local tour leaders and technical personnel to repair, six hours past, still did not find fault reasons.
“quick look Zhou.” Took command of the head of chicken, a base point. Zhou night scene, detect failures, replacement parts, debugging line … … Less than an hour put the troubleshooting.
“skilled are bold!” This is a general of Zhou’s praise. As a rank of chief engineer, Zhou is a special equipment vehicle, hydraulic, engine, large cranes and several models of missile launchers and more than 20 areas of expertise, “technical authority” has dozens of critical moment saved the day in the nick of .
time, the task force in carrying out missile emergency transport, emergency moment, but why the sudden appearance of the missile body crane Relay abnormal boom extension can not be reduced. At this point the missile launchers just hanging just above, if forced to operate, will inevitably result in a major bomb crash accident, the consequences could be disastrous. Technical staff of more than 10 hours of the inspection, there is no result, the soldiers anxious round and round. At this time, Zhou stepped. With a strong theoretical foundation and abundant practical experience, immediately closed: “cut off the circuit, replace the valve.”
scene of people have mentioned throats, each breath, his eyes glued to Zhou, secretly for him to sweat. But see Zhou calm, skillfully will fail eleven excluded. “Reborn” after the crane lifted again asked, “Excalibur”, the successful completion of the task.
in the eyes of others, every day with the “lump of iron” to deal with the Zhou, flies it is too boring and hard, but he has his own happiness. He admitted that, when recalling that he had participated in dozens of major live firing and other military support tasks, he proudly; remembered that he was involved in many training and teaching materials, innovative hundred combat training methods, his pride; remembered to bring their own out of the disciples, and some fame in the Second Artillery, and some equipment and technology to become the backbone of his pride … …
However, the army 20 years, Zhou is still with his parents, his wife and daughter three different ranks. For various reasons, he has no chance to accompany his wife and daughter away in his hometown in Hunan had a complete holiday for parents to make a bed to fulfill his son’s filial piety … each Mindful of this, the famous man of steel, eyes filled with cheerful tenderness also guilty.
mission to protect the shoulder, “Excalibur.” Over the years, becoming known as Zhou’s big name spread like wildfire, come to “dig up” the unit also followed people have pulled his development projects, there is hired as technical adviser, a director Xu, Manager title, there is a car, house, tickets, as well as inviting him to go abroad, “gold” and so on. It can be said, as long as he wishes, those of his “unique skills” enough to let him in a short time, “riches.” However, contrary to all expectation is that whoever promised favorable treatment in what, to what benefits did not make the Zhou tempted. In this regard, Zhou generously answer: fame is important, but I still pay more attention to the cause of my favorite missiles, as long as the troops need, and I willing to be a downright “nobody” is always the missile off “escort.”
