<p August 22, 2011, when 30 minutes, the tempest just invasion of an airport in the Central Plains. 5 of the Guangzhou Military Region Air Force transport aviation certain unit of a large transport aircraft screaming in turn, start remote emergency-range attacks intensive formation, flew to airdrop area 1,000 kilometers away, a large fleet of remote unknown weather conditions "three noes "airdrop technology contest kicked off, which marks the Ministry organically formed remote mobile combat capability.
the airdrop technology contest, the implementation of the conditions of the “three noes” airdrop that does not provide ground command guidance does not provide meteorological data, do not set the center point marked on the the pilots physiological, psychological and technical tactical level as well as equipment performance is a challenge.
airdrop designated an area in the height of 600 meters, five aircraft took off with an interval of 10 minutes to follow up the implementation of all artificial airdrop, two cast parachute, each batch unit enters airdrop two cast parachute, weight 120 kg. Airdrop field area of ??1800 meters x 1300 meters, the center point of the T cloth subject airdrop matter after landing distance with T-cloth distance to calculate the score, selected the outstanding aircrews.
before takeoff, the Ministry leadership told the author, to accelerate the innovation and development of military training and carry out diverse tasks quickly upgrade the ability of the comprehensive solid strategic delivery of core strength, their requirements based on the new “outline” training content, in accordance with the “war consistent training, training with the same” guiding ideology, carefully arranged, organizational units, emergency pull and nighttime low meteorology and physical airdrop and airborne training; to increase transition training sorties unit to execute hundreds or even thousands of kilometers of transition tasks, to improve its long-range attack capability; constantly set danger tactical means of radio silence, electromagnetic interference and anti-interference, cross-use of tempered troops, starting from the actual temper Force long-range delivery capability.
the Ministry troops long Liu told the author: a large transport aircraft stand-alone the formations follow up, continue to try and drills, the outline of the provisions of the follow-up interval shortened by two-thirds, rapid delivery capability troops improved significantly.
takeoff soon, the crew discovered hidden route turbulent airflow concentrated cumulus. With airborne equipment to measure air wind. “The fleet scheduled airspace, the lead plane, deputy commander Yang Jun carefully control the aircraft, led the fleet to the implementation of the 600 meters flying at low altitude.
ground signs, meteorological data and ground guide “three no” case, the unit quickly start airdrop procedures. With the horn sounds, the yellow light, airdrop members quickly do airdrop ready. Shortly thereafter, the green light, “cast” the pilot Marvin widely command sound, carrying two cast parachute airdrop material from the machine away, one after the parachutes flying in the air.
11 when 35 minutes, with the last aircraft captain Hu Jinming driving safety back to the Ministry, the remote tactical background endowed with “three noes” airdrop technology successful conclusion of the contest. It is understood that, in a contest of this large fleet of remote airdrop technology, aircraft remote range raid 3 hours and 20 minutes, a range of more than 1,400 km, the implementation of the follow-up airdrop unknown weather conditions, four crew airdrop achievements assessed as excellent, a unit as well.Share:
