Russia “Pandora’s box”
present, the Russian military-industrial complex is international arms market selling a product called “Club-K” cruise missile system. The system includes one to launch the “club” of the four cruise missile launchers, the launcher was hidden in a cargo container looks like a container, the container’s role is to cover the “club” missile transport, from vertical, launchers, and control room; control room, there are two operators responsible for the implementation of satellite communications, and missile targeting and launch. Russia’s “club” of NATO missile, code-named SS-N-27 “hot.”
However, the “club” missile export name “Pandora’s box.” The container looks like a weapon system that the container ships, trains and container trucks launch. Although the exterior looks like a simple container, but the actual “club” to locate the missile to a secret, and make preparations for the raid, or may be simultaneously from multiple launch tube, and fired several missiles.
“Club-K” missiles with satellite navigation capability, the missile is currently able to use the U.S. GPS and Russian “GLONASS” system. Moreover, this missile might be able to use the future of China’s “Compass 2″ and European “Galileo” navigation system. In addition, according to the “Club-K” missile propaganda video display, in addition to targeting from space-based adjustment of satellite-derived information, the missile can also be obtained from an airborne platform similar services.
“Club-K” cruise missiles carried warheads with conventional warheads are not limited to one. According to the British “Jane’s Defense Weekly” said, “the club” missile and the former Soviet Union similar to the RK-55 cruise missiles, which can carry 200-kiloton nuclear warhead. SS-N-27A can also be equipped with land-attack missile power generators, as the electromagnetic bomb or electromagnetic pulse weapons to play a role.
as a Russian “Club-K” cruise missile system, potential major customers, which India may be the first round or second round of missile attack as a weapon to deal with Pakistan or China. If the United Nations to lift sanctions, Iran may become a “club-K” missile is another customer.
Chinese submarine menace
According to U.S. National Security Fellow, Heritage Foundation, Dr. Sidi La Jiesi Karma, China has expressed interest in buying the “club” missiles, equipped with China’s 041 yuan-class submarines, 093-class nuclear-powered submarine and the Russian “Kilo” class submarines. China as a container ship may also equipped with ground attack missiles, electromagnetic bombs; equipped with nuclear warheads, electromagnetic bombs to attack U.S. Navy port facilities.
American International Strategic Assessment Center, said Richard Fisher, director of the PLA Navy’s submarine force in the number and sophistication of large-scale upgrade more threatening. Although the PLA submarine fleet would not own the expansion to provide public information, but analysts based on existing data, the PLA submarine force in 2011 to 2020 development of the assessment. Since 2000, the PLA Navy has a 50-60 diesel-electric submarines, but with the old submarines, especially the 50′s production of “Romeo” class submarines to be replaced by a new design, the ability of China’s submarine force is constantly increasing.
SS-N-27 anti-ship missile system currently used by the Russian military, there are two models: one is the “Club-S”, standards for equipment with 533 mm torpedo tubes of submarines; another kind of “club-N”, for a universal vertical launcher of the missile surface ships. SS-N-27 anti-ship missile systems, including missiles that can be used: for use against surface ships of the 3M-54E and 3M-54E1; used to attack ground targets, the 3M-14E; used to attack submarines 91RE1 and 91RE2. The “Club-S” with 3M-54E or 3M-54E1, 3M-14E and 91RE1.
3M-54E and 3M-54E1 anti-ship missile family form, the two series are different. One of three 3M-54E anti-ship missiles, including solid-fuel booster stage, winged low-flying subsonic and supersonic flying last paragraph of the class level, the middle of their flight with inertial navigation, the last paragraph of the use of active radar homing. The missile is equipped with the world’s first supersonic low-flying torpedo tube launched by the last paragraph of the level of anti-ship cruise missiles, can be equipped destroyers, frigates, corvettes and submarines. 3M-54E1 anti-ship cruise missiles are subsonic, including booster with wings level and the main engine subsonic level, for equipment with a small tonnage of surface ships and submarines short torpedo tubes. Compared with the 3M-54E, 3M-54E1 warhead weight has doubled, an increase of 40% range, can hit targets as far as 250 km away.
Richard Fisher believes that once the Chinese Navy’s attack submarine equipped with a “Club” anti-ship cruise missiles, it would be even more powerful. China’s conventional submarines continuously improve combat capability, so that the U.S. Navy’s cruise missile submarines and nuclear-powered attack submarine operations in the Taiwan Strait is subject to the implementation of a greater inhibition. This challenge also highlights the U.S. Navy anti-submarine facilities are further shrinking. This is the most reluctant to accept the results of the Pentagon, the U.S. Navy for decades in the exercise, they have witnessed how the non-nuclear-powered submarines to the surface and underwater with the United States forces in dealing with great victory.
8 23, U.S. National Security Fellow, Heritage Foundation, Dr. Sidi La Jiesi Karma wrote, China’s procurement of Russian “Club” anti-ship missile has a very large interest in the ultimate goal is to These Russian ‘killer’ class submarines equipped with the 041 yuan, 093-class nuclear submarines and Russian “Kilo” class submarines. Once with the “Club” anti-ship missiles, attack submarines, the Chinese will have greater lethality.(edit: SN015) share:
