Global Network May 9, 2007, the mainland to the Ukraine to buy Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, after about ten years of service overhaul . Taiwan’s “United,” said the outside world is its name, “Shi Lang No.” quite a lot of speculation, in fact it around after the service how much influence the situation, the real focus.
Taiwan media said Kuznetsov the only sister ship “Admiral Kuznetsov”, currently in service in Russia. Although the displacement of more than 60,000 tons, up 70 percent of the U.S. aircraft carrier, but in combat power, and not as half of the U.S..
the most important fighter-bombers, the U.S. has 44 per vessel carrier, Kuznetsov less than 20; solely on U.S. military aircraft to jam enemy electronic EA-6B, there are all-weather provide sentry for the fleet of E-2 AWACS; Russia in these areas, the lack of performance can be the corresponding models.
In addition, the carrier deck is not long enough for fighters to take off, the United States use the steam catapult, the aircraft “shot” into the air; Russia still lacks the technology, can cause the boat upturned bow, so that aircraft “jump” into the air. Seriously affect the aircraft’s payload, with the lack of air tankers, making the fighters against the scope and capabilities are severely limited.
Taiwan media said the U.S. military’s most valuable asset, a few years of operating experience, the U.S. aircraft carrier at sea for more than one-third, “Admiral Kuznetsov” is often a year out not a far door.
so Taiwan media that can be expected in the next few years, the mainland carrier force, “faced with more serious learning disabilities, aircraft operating losses would be very heavy.” The future composition of its fleet, in the face with a considerable strength of the imaginary enemy (such as Taiwan), and “no special skills of combat power.”
article says, although quite different with the United States is still far, but an aircraft carrier in service, the mainland’s military buildup is a major milestone, beginning with a certain degree on behalf of its projected strength of ocean energy. The military services across the continent, together arms combat power, and the level of information is bound with the carrier’s introduction and a substantial progress. As for Taiwan, the mainland carrier must not be because the initial instability may appear, to be taken lightly, ignoring the potential threat.
