[Canada," Chinese Defense Review "magazine November issue of the article] Title: continue to expand into the Russian strategic weapons technology gap
recent years the Russian military-industrial and technological developments can be seen in major aviation radar, engines, nuclear weapons, intercontinental ballistic missiles, strategic submarines and other advanced military technology, the gap between China and Russia than in reduced, but to expand into. F-10B fighter and passive airborne phased array radar, the F -20 testing machine, 052C “Chinese Aegis” guided missile destroyer, KJ-20OO early warning aircraft have appeared on the one hand reflects the Chinese military industry in a completely isolated , isolation of the progress achieved under, but also exposed the gap between Russia’s military technology is rapidly expanding into the facts. No country in the 21st century military industry is behind closed doors, complete way of cloning
the weak nuclear force
first of all nuclear weapons technology, intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missile technology, a new generation of intercontinental ballistic missiles in Russia on combat with a missile equipped with 10 sub-head, a range of more than 10,000 kilometers of ability, self-propelled solely on its way in terms of emission , far more than China’s new “wind”-31A to be advanced. Moreover, do not see China’s intercontinental ballistic missile technology with a capacity of carrying 10 warheads.
Russia’s new generation of “尤里多尔戈鲁基” series of strategic nuclear missile submarines also have the shape of the 21st century style of Western strategic nuclear submarines and missile compartment design approach has been completely Westernized, with than 094 of China’s strategic nuclear missiles under the submarine is entirely the 1970s replica of the Soviet strategic nuclear submarines. Russian “Bulava” submarine-launched strategic missile test successful three times since 2010, while China’s “waves” -2 submarine-launched missiles, the actual service time is currently still appears elusive.
weaknesses of conventional forces
F -20 fighter appeared, indeed that the Chinese fighter toward the direction of independent design. Yet it is the emergence of -20 F, so continue to buy AL-31FN engine trends shows that the Chinese fighter insurmountable obstacle to industrial development continue to exist, but the short term is difficult to cross. That is still a lack of high-thrust engine with advanced radar technology.
F -20 is only a test machine, the engine obviously do not have supersonic cruise capability, can only be called “with Chinese characteristics, fourth-generation fighter (test machine)” only. As for Russia, the fifth-generation fighter to use active phased array radar for air has been tested from two years ago, and more than one. Fifth-generation fighter needs 14,500 kg class 117 series engine afterburner thrust can be achieved to promote T-50 supersonic cruise.
China’s long-range air defense weapons in terms of charge or in engine technology, with the Russian air defense missile technology is still a considerable gap, Russia has started to develop a range of 400 km air defense missile system.
in ship-to-air missiles, Russia began to deploy a new generation of 9M96E vertical launch system, S-300PMU2 on the ship is not difficult technical problems. Universal vertical launcher, prompting Russian 9M96E carrier vertical launching missile range covers 40-120 km, than the early-type RIF-M ship-to-air missiles (Chinese Navy) is more compact, modular, digital. In-ship missile technology, types, only Russia and India deployed a range of 300 km, small supersonic “gem” multi-purpose missiles. China has no such technology, but also do not have a vertical launch missile ship.
airborne weapons systems in China and Russia into a widening gap. Range of more than 220 km KD-88 air to surface missiles, the emergence of the Chinese Air Force has the capacity to implement horizon-to-ground precision strike. But Russia, the United States, Europe, the advanced-ground missiles, are in the 300-500 km range, the use of advanced GPS + INS + + end of the match terrain imaging radar infrared or induction technology. China and the former use of the Russian ground and air-to-ship missiles are beginning to make improvements.
Navy’s situation is basically the same. On the surface, China has 90% of domestic capacity, but is this the last 1O% are key technologies.
052C guided missile destroyers of the emergence of a “naval version of the F -20.” The emergence of 052C, do show the progress of China’s ship industry, at least have mastered the active phased array radar technology.
in the UAV field, China’s development is a fact faster than in Russia. Large-scale strategic UAVs “pterosaur” entered the flight test, with anti-tank attack UAV attacks have pushed the international market, while Russia has not yet appeared similar UAV.
tanks improved speed faster than in Russia, five years have come up with a variety of 99 tanks modified, until September 2011, Russia was exhibited improved T-90AM main battle tanks. In addition, surface ships built in recent years, China is far greater than the tonnage of Russia, and Japan. Equipped than the Russian Navy’s first shipboard active phased array radar. Overall, however, as noted above, the overall gap still exists.share:
