F-20 stealth second in the world can remotely kill the U.S.
Russian “Military Review” quoted the Russian weapons analyst speculation, said many new features of the F -20 Stealth fighter was exposed. The article said that the F -20 to fully draw on the design features of the U.S. F-22 and F-35 two fighters, also has advanced weapons systems. Future it will become the elite forces of the ability to remotely kill the U.S. AWACS.
According to “Le Monde” quoted the report, analysts of the Russian weapons after long-term observation on the performance of F -20, a detailed analysis, and proposed many new ideas.
First of all, outsiders have previously suggested that the F -20 aerodynamic layout is similar to the U.S. F-22 fighters. F -20 prototype, the main wing to the large edge of the BWB design, consistent with the F-22. This indicates that its mobility and maneuverability are more excellent. Recent studies have shown that F -20 to send the machine inlet shape is similar to the F-22 inlet side of the F-35 fighter of the DSI inlet. This shows that F -20 aerodynamic layout to not only learn from the F-22, a combination of some of the advantages of the F-35 fighter. DSI type inlet with automatic adjustment function, which according to the speed change at any time to change the feed rate so as to enhance the performance of the engine. This excellent design F -20 to cruise at supersonic speed, and maintain the stability of the flight. Outsiders have previously suggested that the F -20 does not have a supersonic cruise capability guess is wrong.
Secondly, after analysis, F -20 is a larger payload of heavy fighters, stealth performance may be subject to certain restrictions. Recent studies have shown that the shape of F -20 with the characteristics of the advanced stealth fighter, and its belly is very smooth, suggesting that it draws on the F-22 Stealth shape design, with better stealth performance. And the PLA may have been in stealth coating technology breakthrough, therefore, F -20 stealth performance should be superior to Russia’s next-generation stealth fighter T-50 and U.S. F-35, second only to the F-22.
The article said that another new discovery on the F -20 fighter: its weapon mount system is highly versatile, not only to mount the “Lightning” series of air-to-air missiles, but also mount a “Thunderbolt”, “Thunder Stone” series of land-attack missiles, including the People’s Liberation Army of the latest development of “Thunder-3″ and “thunder stone 6″ guided missiles. This makes F -20 and Russian Su-34 fighter-bombers, with a powerful ground attack capability.
reported that the People’s Liberation Army has not disclosed information about the F -20 airborne radar. Russian weapons analysts believe that it must be equipped with advanced active phased array radar, which can provide support for its variety of guided weapons.
The article said that the F -20 with aerial refueling capability to significantly expand its operational range, this Prior to the outside world was not found. People’s Liberation Army will F -20 as a one hit kill weapon. It can penetrate the defense system of the U.S. Air Force to shoot down the E-3 (Air Eagle Eye) airborne early warning aircraft, which paralyzed the U.S. airborne early warning and command capabilities. In wartime, the U.S. military will certainly AWACS deployment in the rear of the combat formation. At this time, the F the -20′s long-range attack ability will send in handy.
F -20 with supersonic flight capabilities, stealth capability, powerful weapons systems and distant voyages, the Chinese Air Force is certainly interested in it as a long-range combat aircraft flew to the second island chain to use. It will also become the F-22 the most formidable opponent. F -20 into the military, the U.S. military does not have the number of aircraft F-22 still in service. Thus, the U.S. military has every reason to worried about the F -20.
article to speculate that the F -20 production is expected to reach the scale of 400-500. It will completely replace the Russian-made Su-27 and Su-30MKK fighter with the F-11 and F -10 “national production” air combat fleet. More articles:
