Experts say the F-20 body dimensions of great help to mount anti-aircraft weapons
4 17, the establishment of New China, the sixtieth anniversary of the anniversary of the aviation industry, F-20 stealth fighters take to the skies again, this is from January 11, F-20 first flight after the second test flight. 2011 年 4 17, the aircraft industry in Chengdu Aircraft Industrial (Group) Co., Ltd. F-10 aircraft display machine at Open Day to attract thousands of visitors. CFP for map 1958, Mao Zedong visited WP-5 engine plant.
captain of 16.43 m, height 5.43 m, a wingspan of 9.75 m, maximum level flight speed per hour, the table 1350 km, known as “air Falcon” made the third-generation fighter F-10.4 17 60 for the new Chinese aviation industry a grand birthday gift, the second in Chengdu Aircraft Company to the public. In this special day, more than 2,000 people and close to the F-10 completed a “close contact.” People’s Liberation Army Air Force super pilot, F-10 chief test pilot school, also unveiled a powerful mine-site activities, for hundreds of “aviation fans’ autograph.
nervous and flushed
“F-10 from the 1980s started to develop, until March 23, 1998 was successfully completed its first flight, experienced during the 10-year flight test. “Lei Qiang recalled, first flight is not ideal weather, visibility barely reached 5 km, as tense and flushed, he looks like a drunk, jump to a 152 pulse is times.
strong when Ray took a deep breath after you start the engine into the cabin, I found myself completely calm. 17 minutes, “Hawk” safe landing, a successful maiden flight of mine said something stronger: “This is China’s real fighter.”
mention the difference between test pilot and pilot, Ray Strong, said: “When I was a pilot in the army, when once the special circumstances encountered in the air, I just need to be handled in accordance with the provisions of the manual, but the manual is provided on the blood test pilot lessons in return. As a test pilot, in the face is usually a new fighter, my job is to explore the aircraft’s performance, and help designers improve the aircraft. “
he revealed that, after repeated in the whole range of air filters , 24 people into the test pilot of the assessment. Ultimately, only five were identified as F-10, “chief test pilot group” members.
many details of the proposed 1000 improvements
in the eyes of many people, the recent test pilot who is away from the sky, but also from people who died recently, because Each test is “dancing on the blade”, and their fate is walking a tightrope.
Currently, the only active the world’s fourth-generation fighters (according to plan on behalf of the Russian fifth generation) F-22, there are two in the flight test phase of test pilots were killed. In the third-generation fighter development, the United States, Russia, France and other countries have had repeated crash aircraft accident, and three generations of Chinese-made F-10 flight test machine to achieve a “zero casualties”, created a miracle in the history of flight .
test pilot with the older generation is different is that mine strong start from the beginning involved in aircraft design, full participation, a total of 1000 F-10 made many details of the improvements. In a sense, he is also the aircraft’s “designer.” “The F-10 flight, I just got on a plane always have a good understanding of things, but for the first time the face of the F-10, I was completely dumbfounded, not more than 60% of basic knowledge.” Lei Qiang said, but through a second test He not only familiar with the F-10, and “help” step by step toward improved F-10.
F-10 is so quick
order to better control the F-10, Ray studied flying strong theory, but also maintain a record of flight experience. No matter how busy, he insisted to learn English, now with foreign exchange test pilot when there is no language barrier. Face known as the “death forbidden,” the spin of the delta wing aircraft stall risk serious test subjects, but also he took a strong challenge mine. Training in Russia, he also praised the “outstanding world-class test pilot.” Lei Qiang, from the first time in 1998 driving his F-10, to the Air Force F-10 quantities of equipment, driving his F-10 flew a total of more than 1,000 sorties, and the entire F-10 test pilot team, only about 10 individuals to achieve this level.
F-10′s combat performance, Lei Qiang said he made the first flight when startled roll, the aircraft could be so sensitive, agile, it is second-generation machine can not do. In addition, the F-10 can be at 80 km range missile, a combat radius of more than 1,600 kilometers, if the air refueling, also doubled, to ensure the security and defense as far as the Spratly Islands. Lei Qiang said, after the F-10 equipment, our fighters can effectively seize control of the air, while achieving precision strike on the ground. (West)
into the next decade, China’s aviation industry first phalanx
smoke in the birth of a new Korean Chinese aviation industry has gone through 60 years glorious career.
from the F-10, Xiaolong aircraft, a new boat to selling overseas series, Y12, from the adaptation to high altitude flight AC313 helicopter research and development of large passenger aircraft C919 … … China’s aviation industry from small to large, from weak to strong, have been produced over 20,000 aircraft and helicopters, aircraft, engine 60,000 units, more than 20,000 pieces of missiles, aircraft, exports and aid donated a total of more than 2,400 aircraft, developed a group of independent intellectual property rights, and the world developed considerable in-service aircraft, aviation equipment performance, among the able to develop advanced fighter aircraft, fighter-bombers, helicopters, trainers, special aircraft and other aviation equipment, a small number of nations.
1951 年 4 17, the state promulgated the “decision on the construction of the aviation industry,” Aviation Industry Management Committee was established, the new Chinese aviation industry was born.
the 1950s, strong support in the country, the aviation industry to achieve a leap from the repair to manufacturing. In 1959, the first supersonic jet F-6 trial success, China entered the world at the time the few mass-produced jet fighter ranks of countries. The sixties and seventies, the independent aviation industry into construction and development period. In 1965, our own design and shape a strong 5 attack aircraft design; 1968, the first aircraft designed and manufactured high-altitude high-speed fighter successful maiden flight.
reform and opening up, especially since the new century, the rapid development of China’s aviation industry, mastered the third-generation fighter aircraft and engine, turbofan regional jet, helicopter research and development of advanced technology, to among the series, information technology, systems development of aviation equipment, the ranks of countries. The F-10 as the representative of China’s military aircraft from the second generation to third generation cross; the “Taihang” engine as the representative of China’s military aircraft engines from the second generation to third generation, from the vortex wherein turbofan, thrust from other major thrust to across; to AWACS aircraft and other equipment for the special representatives of China’s aviation equipment from mechanization to information across.
general manager of China Aviation Industry Group, said Lin Zuo Ming, China’s aviation industry with the world advanced level quickly narrowed, 2015 , will be fully complete the task of key models developed to promote inter-generational air weapons development, and achieved the initial breakthrough in air power bottlenecks; to 2021, the world’s aviation industry will achieve strong from the “hold a candle” to “parallel” by leaps and bounds, one of the world aviation industry in the first phalanx; to 2051, China’s aviation industry to create a centenary, will strive to aviation technology and industrial development ahead of the world level.
“in today’s world power, and both the aviation industry powerhouse. Aviation industry is to create strategic advantage of the core industrial countries, the level of development determines a country’s international competitiveness.” LinZuoMing that the aviation industry’s core technology can not be bought with money, with the market can not be exchanged, can only take the road of independent innovation. Bottleneck for the engine technology, the aircraft industry will be in the “five” spend 10 billion yuan during the development of advanced aircraft engines, and actively carry out the original innovation and technological breakthroughs, to fight a “patriotic air” power turnaround.

three next-generation fighter F-20 question
After years of looking, a skyrocketing number of F-20 military fans feeling that inspired, enthusiastic and lively discussions. For the entire machine, including four generations of fighter aircraft made many new questions, hear Xinhua News Agency, “World Military” magazine editor in chief, military expert Chen Hu, recite for us.
One question: four generations of machines, or Five machine?
F-20 in the end is the fourth generation machine or five generations of machines, this is an old topic, F-22 came from the United States, began to appear on the so-called “fourth generation” and “Five” of the two it is called.
the United States is based on the operational effectiveness of combat aircraft has a large span of progress for generational: like F-86, this is the era of the first generation of jet fighters; after the F-4 “Phantom” is A typical second-generation fighters; to F-15, F-16, F-13, F-18, is America’s third-generation jet fighter; to the F-22, F-35, which is a fourth-generation fighters.
of points in Russia and the United States is somewhat different, it is typical of the major technological advances on behalf of a way to plan: the first two generations of Americans and in fact, MiG-15 is a typical example first generation; by the MiG-21 is the second generation; but by the third generation, when the Russian people to the use of variable wing aircraft as a generation of technology, such as the MiG-23, while the Americans believe that technology for variable wing aircraft operational effectiveness is not greatly affected, so did not see it as a separate generation; to the Su-27 is the fourth generation; to more below, the current T-50 is already the fifth generation. This is the first four generations of the Five Dynasties and the causes.
from aircraft engineering and operational efficiency in terms of, I think, four generations of machines is still the way the division has its scientific nature. For example, the title of the F-20, military enthusiasts or weapons enthusiasts, more recognition is divided into four generations of machines, I also agree with this classification method. On the network, F-20 has a nickname called “ribbon” is actually a “fourth generation” of harmonics.
question two: the meaning of four generations of machines, how much?
Overall, as a symbol of the modern fighter, “won” four-generation machine means you have to master the world’s top air combat platform technology. Specifically, four generations of machines for different countries, it embodies the meaning are different.
for example, that the F-22 U.S. Air Force can make it available to any other country or any region of the asymmetric advantages the Air Force absolutely. At the same time, it believed that the advent of the F-22 can make this advantage has been extended to 2020 or even longer. This is for the United States, military significance, political significance, economic significance is quite significant.
countries outside the United States, its meaning may be radically different.
First, it broke the American monopoly in this area, the state. In fact, my personal view, four generations of machine is only a platform for advanced conventional air operations, that is, it is only a plane, meaning it is not necessary to unlimited overstating.
In fact, modern air combat is the combat, four generations of machines such as advanced aircraft, but in this system, which occupies an important position only. Single performance superb fighting weapons, does not directly equal to enhance the combat effectiveness.
Three questions: a good big or small better?
first appeared online after the F-20 photographs, some of the so-called foreign experts to do a comparison, they find a reference to estimates based on photographs found F-20 is bigger than the F-22 and T-50 must be large, so large that mean? Big or small the good good?
do larger aircraft size, the greater the weight, then the payload, fuel load, the greater, the more space the body, you can install more advanced, a huge machine avionics. From this point on, the large aircraft from the operational capability is an advantage, especially in the fourth generation machine. Because the characteristics of four generations of machines is the biggest stealth, and stealth capability given that the primary task is to combat and ground attack rather than air combat.
In this sense, the four generations of machine-to-ground attack performance can be said that more attention, payload, fuel load large range far is a very key indicators, there is clearly a large aircraft large benefits.
In addition, for the fourth-generation stealth fighter, there are still a factor to consider is the way of stealth aircraft weapons mounted. If the aircraft size larger, so the machine can be made larger bomb bay can carry larger and heavier, longer range airborne weapons, which some of the remote attack high-value, high-threat target, such as playing carrier, there is great significance.
the same time, the aircraft also has a big big problems and shortcomings. From a cost point of view, you should probably large. Similarly, from the development and production of technical difficulty, may be necessary to high. It can be said, a big small have their advantages. (Guangzhou)
