army airborne combat vehicles no less
Xinhua Military: Airborne fighting vehicles can talk about the significance of airborne troops for what?
Sun Xiangdong: Now the airborne troops, has increased from the traditional single paratroopers into combat vehicles by parachute, parachute assault vehicles, mobile command system automatic-type weapon based heavy equipment airdrop platform consisting of airborne and mechanized units. Airborne troops not only to maintain the original long-range mobility, it also has a battlefield mobility and strike capability.
compared with other mechanized, airborne troops with a fast response, remote beyond, deep behind enemy lines, vertical combat characteristics.
Xinhua Military: Russian airborne troops and tanks have been in contact, the feel?
Sun Xiangdong: I have two field contact with the Russian airborne fighting vehicles, one in the “Peace Mission 2005″ joint military exercises on China and Russia, one in the SCO joint anti-terror drill in Russia on. Control almost all aspects of style. From the positioning, I think Russia is a battlefield airborne combat vehicles and mobile fire platform, and the Chinese army’s airborne combat vehicles not only have more than one function, or a delivery platform.
airborne fighting vehicles suspension system have a clue
Xinhua Military: Airborne fighting vehicles in the parade training, and other armored vehicles, should not the same, right?
Sun Xiangdong: We should say very different. Airborne chariot is characterized by small size and light weight. And team side of the 30 vehicles in airborne combat vehicles is the only vehicle suspension system using oil and gas equipment. Airborne combat vehicles using gas suspension system for two reasons, first is loaded into transport aircraft in the airborne car when the door was not high enough, oil and gas through the wheel suspension system to load it up, reducing the vehicle’s height. In addition, airborne combat vehicles off-road performance and high-altitude launch of use also requires the use of gas damping suspension system for better performance. In other words, we load airborne chariot wheels 10, each with its own oil and air pressure. Training in the parade, the oil pressure of each wheel load and pressure are transferred into the same, there is the difficult part. Tiananmen Square Chang An Avenue, otherwise a very flat road, car will tilt. The original airborne combat vehicles suspension system from high to low right low left high is normal, but also to adapt to the hills, mountain warfare needs. In this battlefield, airborne combat vehicles would not be so bumpy, it reflects the power of oil and gas hanging out.
lightweight airborne fighting vehicles, air transport and air-dropped to the need, and you may have noticed that the track than any other airborne combat vehicles tracked vehicles have to be narrow, which creates a new phenomenon. Some bricks or uneven ground, the ups and downs, almost like giant tanks have little impact, but will airborne tank “top up.” This makes the formation of airborne chariot “standard Qi” more difficult.
“vehicles with the vote” is not necessary
Xinhua Military: Do you think the Russian airborne fighting vehicles, “vehicles with cast” more advanced it?
Sun Xiangdong: In this respect, there are many errors. The former Soviet Union only in 1976 conducted a “cast vehicles with” test. Analogy we can look, take a capsule the astronauts return to Earth, to the maximum extent, reduce the impact of physical damage to the astronauts, scientists use a number of means. If it is “the same cast of people and vehicles”, was how much protection measures to ensure the safety of members, cost-effectiveness is poor, not worth the candle. In training, “sub-investment vehicles”, the airborne airborne fighting vehicles owned building to find the speed is not slow, we take the people and cars down the same way with the machine and equipment from the tailgate from the machine, personnel from two side door from the machine airborne. Can control the parachute, landing as close to the equipment location. This drop means that we have trained many times, I personally think that “with investment vehicles” is not necessary.
Xinhua Military: Do you think Airborne fighting vehicles, where the direction for future improvements?
Sun Xiangdong: I think the first is to further enhance the firepower, because the airborne troops combat environment is harsh, protective on its own airborne fighting vehicles have limitations, if fire is not strong, it is trouble. Second, as far as possible to enhance the protection force. Finally, in the remote communication and data sharing should be further strengthened. The first is to enhance the firepower of course.
