data for: Haikou, China Navy 052C-class destroyer 171
data for: class 169 052B Navy guided missile destroyer off the Somali coast have to go to perform escort missions sent to China
● ships on the Gulf of Aden has the most advanced radar detection and C4ISR capabilities, greatly improving maritime surveillance capability
● Chinese destroyer sent to the Gulf of Aden can effectively detect and obtain the U.S. Navy Fifth Fleet, the radar signal and record relevant data
● China South China Sea Fleet is likely to set up a submarine fleet resident Indian Ocean
the U.S. Associated Press Feb. 27 issue of the Han and defense chief editor Andrei Chang article revealed that the China last year sent to the Gulf of Aden to combat piracy task of “Wuhan” and the “sea number of” advanced destroyer, equipped with advanced “Sea Lion” radar, greatly enhanced the PLA maritime surveillance capability to monitor the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet whereabouts. The article said that the South China Sea Fleet may be formed “Indian submarine fleet,” long-running task to fight pirates, and thus achieve the purpose of the Permanent Mission of the Indian Ocean.
Andrei Chang said, “anti-piracy action” for the Chinese people to enter the Navy and the Indian Ocean, where the best reason to deploy permanent forces. As the Gulf of Aden region to combat piracy is a long-term task, the PLA Navy’s South Sea Fleet is likely to set up a submarine fleet – could be “Indian Ocean, South China Sea Fleet submarine fleet.
He pointed out that recent months, a series of Chinese publications clear that the “Indian Ocean does not belong to India,” the article. Now, the intent of these articles have become increasingly evident in the implementation of anti-piracy operations, the PLA Navy ships will be remote Marine combat operations experience, for the formation of an ocean-going aircraft carrier fleet to prepare for the future, the Chinese navy may send other ships, such as the 054A frigate, perform similar tasks.
Andrei Chang said, to send warships to China the existence of the Gulf of Aden a key military target. “Chinese Aegis” class “Wuhan” and the “Haikou number” destroyer has been the Gulf of Aden waters, the destroyer has the most advanced radar detection and C4ISR capabilities, so that the areas of effective battlefield surveillance exercises Gulf of Aden to monitor the U.S. Fifth Fleet People’s Liberation Army to provide the best geographical environment.
he said, “Chinese Aegis” destroyers powerful detection capability, thanks to its equipped with the “Sea Lion” active phased array radar in the development of the radar system, the Chinese from Ukraine KVANT Design Bureau has been some minor technical systems and the recommendations of the Design Bureau has been involved in almost all major Soviet surface warship radar system development process, including FREGAT-2EM3D radar, China has been based on KVANT Design Bureau to provide drawings, reproducing such a radar system.
However, Andrei Chang went on to say, the arms imports and exports from the State Administration of Ukraine received the news that China re-design and renovation of the sea lions radar systems, especially radar circuit from the passive phased array radar development to active phased array radar, which means huge advances in technology, Because this process must address the problem the antenna cooling of China’s contract Ukrainian radar was designed radiator cover, radiator cover that regular use of heat to the cooling agent radar antenna, the diffuser hood also added a small amount of desiccant.
said Andrei Chang, the Chinese government has never said “Chinese Aegis” destroyers equipped with the technical parameters of the radar system, but Western observers generally believe that Russia and China, “Aegis “destroyer far behind the United States,” Aegis “destroyers, and,” Chinese Aegis “destroyers of the chief architect has also made similar comments.
Andrei Chang pointed out that China’s” Sea Lion “Radar System The basic measurement provides some clues about its performance characteristics, which is a sea and air search radar system, capable of changing the beam index (beamindex) at the same time, search and track targets. it can search more than 100 targets, and be able to track one of the 50 goals. about the scope of its search planes 500-550 km.
He noted that China built only two are equipped with the advanced radar system 052C destroyers, which aims to test “Sea Lion” the effectiveness of the radar to be installed next to the Chinese carrier. the use of currently deployed in the Gulf of Aden, “the sea” destroyer is equipped with radar systems, the PLA Navy will be able to monitor the Yemen, Oman and the Hall over most of the wood Zihai Gap area so that they can understand through the Strait of Linz Hall tanker situation in Saudi Arabia, and, based in the Persian Gulf island west of the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet in Bahrain, Qatar, the United States in Saudi Arabia, Central Command and the Army Air Force fighter deployments and actions may be completely in the “Chinese Aegis” destroyers under radar surveillance.
said Andrei Chang, “Chinese Aegis” is also able to the way to the Indian Ocean, passing through its area (the Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia and the Malacca Strait, the main) to conduct reconnaissance, including over southern India. Affected by the National Air Force operations and voice communications signals are likely to be monitored or intercepted. Andrei Chang said, it is worth noting that most of these countries are there with the Chinese army or the sea territorial disputes.
Andrei Chang also said, “sea” and “Wuhan” destroyers equipped with China’s most advanced electronic information access and against the system, and it is equipped with antenna arrays are deployed with Israel and support of electronic information systems for non-similar to these systems can effectively detect and access to the U.S. Navy Fifth Fleet of the radar signal and record the relevant data of these equipment can also monitor the radar signal and the countries along the naval warships of the frequency of action allegedly had a military source said, “the sea” destroyer equipped with NRJ6AESM/ESM system, which is a microelectronic system imported from Israel.
Andrei Chang pointed out that any naval fleet of warships will need strong support underwater guard force, but also the need to strengthen the anti-submarine capabilities in order to ensure the ability to participate effectively in three-dimensional combat, of course, the best anti-submarine measures than the use of submarines to carry out anti-track action. Andrei Chang that the PLA Navy can not be excluded in the Gulf of Aden to combat piracy operation, the new generation 093 attack submarines, diesel-powered submarines or other underwater alert as the possibility of using force.
Finally, said Andrei Chang, hidden behind the scenes action in the fight against piracy, is the main power of naval forces in the establishment of its new “national interest borders” and start the competition. (Spring)
