Zhuangao Xinhua (Xinhua military commentator Zheng Wenhao): The United States has been strict on the implementation of China’s technology blockade. Especially in military technology and military equipment, the U.S. is strictly controlled exports to China. Therefore, in the Chinese military equipment, in addition to some of the last century to buy some of the “Black Hawk” helicopters and radar outside, almost no American weapons systems. But this does not affect China’s military enterprises of the United States as the world’s largest arms market, a yearning. And as China’s rapid military-industrial technology development, the formation of the modern enterprise mechanisms as well as the expansion of foreign exchanges and cooperation in the U.S. defense market expansion is only a matter of time.
1 24, the famous “Jane’s Defense Weekly” has reported, China Aviation Industry Group is prepared to partner with American aerospace companies to participate in the tender, compete for the U.S. Navy VXX helicopter program and senior Air Force TX trainer project. In the VXX helicopter program, the China Aviation Industry Group and the U.S. aerospace company plans to use U.S. civilian aerospace companies designed for the AC-313 medium transport helicopter bid; in the TX project, the bidding will focus on China’s twin-engine L-15 “Falcon” advanced trainer.
“Jane’s Defense Weekly” reported that there is a drawback, is that there is no description VXX helicopter program and the TX project in the end is hell. Jane’s professional may be positioned in defense journals, bother to explain these issues. But we look a little inspection, will know a new generation of U.S. military trainers TX project projects, VXX helicopter program is the U.S. Marine Corps helicopter used to transport the U.S. president’s “special.”
two U.S. presidential plane, one is the use of foreign or long-haul “Air Force One”, another is close to the Marine Corps to use “special presidential helicopter.” This “presidential helicopters, and” exposure is not over, “Air Force One” poor. Because there are countless news programs, had to show the American President at Camp David after the eat, drink, and sped away into the presidential helicopters, the television cameras.
U.S. President’s helicopter is now using Scholes-based company’s VH-3D Sea King helicopters, is a 1974 model developed by the old helicopter. Obama has said that the helicopter is now very good for me. But professionals have pointed out, Obama seems to be the “highlight thrifty” but in fact do not understand the truth. VH-3D Sea King helicopters are very expensive to maintain the old model, looking to save money but in fact than the new aircraft also expensive, year of maintenance, according to a New York Times columnist revealed that up to 32 billion U.S. dollars! In fact, back in the “911″, the U.S. president had wanted to get a new helicopter. But this project is still $ 11.2 billion due to the astronomical figures being terminated.
VXX helicopter program re-start, is the spirit of “cheap” the purpose of going. Of course, the U.S. military industrial giants do not think so, the U.S. goods has always been “expensive” on a word. But the tender has a background as Chinese companies become interesting to them. According to the U.S. aerospace company Kirkland lawyers say: AC-313 specifications for the VXX program is perfect, and much cheaper!
AC-313 in VXX significance of the project lies not only cheap, but the AC-313 directly born out of China’s “straight eight” helicopter. According to the China News reported, AC313 helicopter flight in March 2010, is the latest improved straight eight helicopters to improve the focus on redesigning the whole anti-body to improve crash performance, improved rotor system to enhance its flight performance plateau. September 18, 2010, AC-313 helicopter has successfully landed on the Everest base camp, to become China’s first helicopter flight in the whole territory. VXX AC-313 involved in the project, some experts have pointed out little hope of success. More importantly, this is not a simple technical or price issues, has become a political issue. Can you imagine the U.S. president will take one kind of Chinese military equipment has a background in helicopter cruise around it? Even if only to provide a flying platform for China and the United States to install electronic equipment, the U.S. president will be the domestic right-wing hawks and saliva drowned.
for China, although still not have their own large aircraft, but the Chinese aviation industry dared VXX sensitive projects in the U.S. in this tender, the “Sword” spirit quite worthy of recognition, and even U.S. officials Such scenes are also willing to appear, at least for those U.S. companies can kill the bargain.
2010 U.S. GDP figure is $ 14.6 trillion, of which manufacturing output roughly $ 2.6 trillion. The bulk of the manufacturing sector, in the aviation industry. In 2008, the U.S. aviation industry output value accounted for 1.4 percent of GDP in the United States, which is over $ 200 billion. Aviation industry covered by the metal production and processing, composite materials, aviation electronics, heavy machinery, has become the last bastion of American manufacturing. In a sense, U.S. manufacturing has been no retreat back to the point. Meanwhile, the Chinese aviation industry also made in 2017, “trillion” objective. Of course, there’s “trillion” is RMB. Looking at the world each year nearly $ 400 billion aerospace manufacturing market in China and the U.S. aviation industry is now far more intense and the competition will be brutal.
