Korean media: China should develop air-launched long-range cruise missiles against U.S. aircraft carriers
Data Figure: Chinese CJ-10 land-based cruise missiles
[World Wide Web Roundup] Korean military website Silla Air Force Forum August 20, 2012 article, Russia test-fired a new air- launched cruise missiles Implications for China. Articles that can not be created in the short-term global Navy air-launched cruise missile deterrent capability of the wide range of key equipment. In order to maximize the performance of the air-launched cruise missiles, China should develop high-end tactical bomber similar to the American F-111 “Aardvark” and then get the air deterrent capability of the high intensity of the Asia-Pacific region. The combat capability of air-launched cruise missiles to enhance the development for China the global naval fight for more time.
First, has the world’s naval, China should vigorously develop air-launched cruise missiles.
Russia ties has released news that Russia has successfully carried out a test launch of two new air-launched cruise missiles in August and then carried out two successful test-firing the missile will official equipment of the Russian Air Force. Reference to the information available, this new air-launched cruise missiles is likely to be Russia previously mentioned X-102 long-range air-launched cruise missiles. For Russia the missile test, it will come to the view that Russia is still trying to individual weapons, especially missile weapons technology advantage to make up their own military power compared to the disadvantage of the United States overall. This view is correct. As we all know, after the missile weapons fully mature concept, such weaponry has become the hope for a larger sea superiority, but the whole period and are unable to build the the global Navy countries preferred equipment. For now, compared to Russia’s sworn type rise, the rise of China in the Asia-Pacific region and the world within the more realistic and irresistible. In this process, the air-launched long-range cruise missiles is undoubtedly essential equipment in China.
earlier, the Russian military the media had burst latest “sword” -10 series of cruise missiles deployed in a Navy experiment on board and inferred in future, the Chinese navy mounted other large surface ships or will have the ability to launch long-range cruise missiles. But then, a lot of the correct view is that, in the case of inability to build global Navy, the deployment of long-range cruise missiles on the development potential of the already overstretched large surface ships is too strong a functional temporary measures. In contrast, the deployment of air-launched long-range cruise missile is no doubt at this stage is to have larger airspace best means to gain the advantage of the sea. The view from the technical characteristics of the air-launched long-range cruise missiles, its essence is to have a long-range cruise missiles on the remote multi-target strike capability remote fighter with excellent flight performance and flight effective combination. Resulting in a combination of tactics within the context of mobility, the power and the fight against the most flexible weapon. Although this combination too strong tactical blow attributes greatly weaken its strategic deterrent capability, but like China this sea strike capability to balance its own surface ships vulnerable countries need powerful space-based tactical air-launched long-range cruise missiles undoubtedly still is quite a good choice.
in the foreseeable period, the Chinese Navy will be one in the Western Pacific region of the implementation of the regional defense naval forces. In view of this, the unfavorable situation in offshore naval battle with China if the United States will have to fall into the deployment of a large number of naval forces to confront China in the Asia-Pacific region. At this point, the soft surface impossible simple airstrike serving China, the U.S. aircraft carrier will have arrived at the vicinity of the Chinese coast, and the confrontation between the 18th and 19th centuries a similar kind of naval and coastal artillery. In this form of warfare live in the sea for warships has become a supporting role, really play a key role in China range from 100-2000 km of various types of shore-to-ship anti-ship missiles. The face of such a terrible blow to the power of the U.S. fleet or risk likely to suffer heavy losses, adventure remain there may be more harm than good operations in China offshore execution. Either on to withdraw completely lost effective deterrence capacity beyond the maximum range shore-to-ship missile. This missile combat system, air-launched long-range cruise missiles at the enemy suffered our previous missile strikes, the weak link of the enemy appeared to focus on combat, this is the realization of a fatal blow to the enemy fleet and maintain combat consistency has played an irreplaceable role. Even if the long-range air-launched cruise missiles from the the overall missile strike system, relying on its own within the range of various ships super strike capability, but also for China, in a non-war environment, play some of the world’s Navy tactical combat or strategic deterrence role.
Secondly, China should develop the heavy tactical bomber similar “aardvark” with the new type of cruise shells.the article Korean media in the past, there had been this view, that the “sword” -10 range cruise missiles and F-10 fighters combination is effective solution to that is also the problem of new tools . This view only solve the South China Sea issue, no doubt, is correct. But China’s growing maturity as a world power, its political ambitions locally is limited to maintaining the stability of the good of their own backyard. China in the foreseeable period of political and strategic demands of view, China’s air-launched long-range cruise missiles striking range at least to cover the entire Western Pacific region, not only that, combat intensity should reach any location in this area The moderate intensity Kukai hit ability. Faced with this demand, the Chinese sections of active duty fighter-bombers were unable to meet the demand (fighter combat radius 2000 km, the weapons mounted in the amount of 12-15 tons), while the legend will be equipped with Russian-made Tu-22M3 bombers because the technology is too backward , equally difficult to meet the demand. In view of this, China to work with long-range cruise missiles, the need to develop a new heavy-duty tactical bomber models available for reference US-made F-111 Aardvark fighter-bombers.
F-111 “Aardvark” U.S. General Grumman and the 1960s for the U.S. Navy and Air Force research and development of a versatile heavy tactical bombers. Do kind of the U.S. Navy did not continue development of the fighter-bombers, carrier-based model (“sea pig” sea-pig, mainly due to this type of aircraft taking off and landing on the aircraft carrier performance poor, the final has been eliminated, the replacement model is The famous “Tomcat”), but “Aardvark” fighter-bomber is still regarded as the U.S. Air Force F-15E fighter-bombers in service before the tactical combat ace. The emphasis on high-altitude high-speed environment as a cross-typical second-generation fighters, “Aardvark” fighter-bombers made is still without a person to break the tactical aircraft carrying missiles records (15 tons). The ultra-long-as far as 2100 km combat radius not only to the ability to initiate the “Gold Canyon” action, almost necessary to the Gaddafi life in 1986, at the same time, also make Australia the purchase of a limited number of after technology has shrunk the “Aardvark” long occupied the top spot of the tactical air in the Asia-Pacific region to combat the strongest.
future China’s new heavy-duty tactical bombers, the aardvark such as variable swept wing and outdated technology should never emulate. The aardvark bring today lies the essence of the research and development of the Chinese fighter-bombers, “Aardvark” success proves the superior payload of 15 tons of tactical bombers still excellent long-range strike mission completed. Strong ability to mount heavy tactical bomber undoubtedly not yet implemented (or is not necessary to achieve) the miniaturization remote air-launched cruise missiles provides sufficient space for the mount, large volume of the fighters, and also make it with the loading of a full set of flight electrical and radar equipment, and then have the ability to independently complete a full set of detection and attack missions. The stronger mount ability to look at the abandon variable swept wing in accordance with the the “aardvark mount, as well as similar Chinese fighter, a kind of heavy-duty tactical bombers mount the necessary self-defense missile, can mount about 6 long-range air-launched cruise missiles. If dual or multi-aircraft formation flight, a similar “Gold Canyon” in the U.S. aardvark fleet of 10 squadrons sufficient beyond 1000 km of enemy medium-sized vessel formation (or contains 1-2 The aircraft carrier task force) to initiate a fatal blow to the saturation of the air-ship. This strike capability is China’s most needed at this stage.
third, the development of air-launched cruise shells can be said to build global Navy win development time.
for arms development continued slump in Russia is booming in China, the air-launched long-range cruise missiles with a partial implementation of the global fleet tactical strike and strategic deterrence, but the development of air-launched long-range cruise missiles the significance of what exactly? To replace the global fleet it? When people are not! China and Russia, the two countries to develop air-launched long-range cruise missiles are derived from three common reasons that both need global fleet in the short term, the two countries can not have the world fleet, as well as the two countries have a global fleet are subject to a serious threat from the United States Global Fleet. And in the final analysis, for China and Russia, especially in China, the development of empty actually build enough with the United States to confront the global fleet to win their long-range cruise missiles.
experimental platform marked “Varyag” aircraft carrier, the Chinese navy gradually by the Frigate mainly small and medium-sized fleet mode to large aircraft carrier-based fleet mode conversion. But in the process, China is faced with a very real dilemma. One hand, due to their own lack of construction of this large surface ships, using a similar aircraft carrier has the experience of building a large fleet, had to learn more and more of the U.S. Navy’s development mode. On the other hand, the United States is mainly imaginary enemy of the Chinese navy in the foreseeable period, disclosed or apparent to China’s large fleet information is likely to contain an extremely deceptive, the Soviet Union is on a victim, therefore, China may not not in the draw on the experience of the U.S. fleet at all times maintain caution. In view of this, China needs to integrate a large number of U.S. Navy based information through their own practice and explore large fleet build system according to their own national conditions. This approach will no doubt help to bypass most of the United States no less than the trap, but it has also caused the relatively slow pace of development of China’s large fleet, allowing the U.S. Navy to growing technology advantage, given China’s growing large sea pressure. In view of this, the Chinese food need this in a certain period of time, equipment asymmetric advantage the U.S. temporarily withstood U.S. Navy pressure for the healthy development of their large fleet to win like air-launched long-range cruise missiles.
U.S. Navy tactical strike system, air-launched long-range cruise missiles is not a highly regarded and equipment, mainly due to the equalization of the U.S. Navy’s overall combat capability, and therefore do not need this type of performance too The outstanding equipment overstating the overall combat capability. But, even if the future large aircraft carriers and large amphibious assault ships and other large surface ships have been in service for the Chinese navy, the Chinese Navy and the U.S. Navy in the form of balance, but the Chinese navy in the overall technical level than the U.S. Navy will inevitably the disadvantage. In this case, if the Soviet Union the kind of comprehensive the conventional competitive way, will repeat the mistakes of the Soviet Union. Vigorously develop relying on new heavy tactical bomber remote air-launched cruise missiles will effectively strengthen the overall combat capability of the Chinese navy to disrupt the U.S. Navy combat inherent combat system, to change the way of the Chinese maritime confrontation , resulting in the original American model has excellent performance of various types of equipment to continue to show the technical and tactical limitations, and thus create the conditions for tactical and strategic advantage for the Chinese navy made. Of China, not only from the performance of weapons, but also from the concept of operations for China checks and balances in the combat power even beyond the United States may, relying on the development of a new heavy-duty tactical bomber remote air-launched cruise missiles.
