Russian research institutions that the Chinese J-20 still a long time to volume production
article said the Chinese authorities deliberately leaking fighter F-20 picture, the goal is to strengthen the United States E Xiou and neighboring countries affect the results.
LONDON, January 16 news: According to the Russian world arms trade center site on 13 January reported that China’s first fifth-generation fighter J-20 on January 11 has been successfully conducted test flights. Perhaps coincidentally, this new type of aircraft in flight when the U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates is visiting China.
Russian arms trade center world that, although Chinese President Hu Jintao has declared that J-20 flight test of time just “happens” to visit with U.S. Defense Secretary time to overlap, but to a large extent determine the that China would like to take this arrangement is continued military assistance to Taiwan, the U.S. administration to exert pressure.
2010 year, the U.S. leaders eventually agreed to provide Taiwan with defensive weapons and improve a number of Taiwan’s military active-duty F-16A/B to assess the possibility. Currently, Taiwan is equipped with a total of about 145 F-16A/B fighters. Taiwan’s military hopes the new replacement for these aircraft avionics, engines and radar systems.
can expect is that, Taiwan, India and South Korea’s defense sector leaders will certainly test the success of J-20 upset at this point, the U.S. experts are no exception. For China’s rapid modernization of the Air Force, U.S. Lexington Institute, U.S. Department of Defense leaders, the experts had to stop production of the F-22 expressed concern about the decision. U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates to explain to stop production in the F-22 because of that, based on the assessment, “China can not be equipped by 2020 the fifth generation fighter aircraft, even in 2025, China will only have a limited number of new generation aircraft.” .
Chinese develop a new generation fighter on the news first appeared in the late 1990s, while the aircraft is the first photographs in December 2010 was only spread on the Internet. Russia’s arms trade center world view, J-20 information is likely to be interested in the Chinese special department leaked out, the aim is to strengthen the United States, Russia, Western Europe and neighboring countries affect the results.
It is estimated that, J-20 of about 21 meters in length, weighing about 30 tons, designed with built-in magazine. There will be two numbers are expected to participate in 2001 and 2002 prototype flight test.
assessment, according to experts, China’s fifth-generation fighter to use with the U.S. F-22 and similar to the Russian T-50 stealth technology.
American International Institute for Strategic Studies of the experts believe that, J-20 stealth performance to be inferior to F-22, but was able to carry more ammunition and fuel. Meanwhile, J-20 shows that the emergence of China in the field of military technology has made significant research breakthroughs.
most let the experts can not determine the J-20 in the end what kind of power system equipment. This is because China has developed the WS-10 (including its improved model WS-10G) are less likely to type into the J-20 production structure design. The engine may only be used in flight.
this should be noted that the Chinese side has been newly developed in Russia expressed interest 117S engine.
Russia, the world arms trade analysis that led to China’s interest in 117S only one reason – the same as before, China still can not get rid of the modern Russian-made aircraft engines dependence.
As for the distant future, Russia and the world arms trade center on the Chinese military industry in the short term to create the fifth-generation fighter’s remarks was very skeptical. Currently, the technological level of China’s defense industry in the major direction (including the manufacture of modern jet engines, radar systems, composite materials and avionics) still lags behind Western countries and Russia. In fact, visiting Chinese Defense Minister Liang Gates also acknowledged this during the gap.
Russian arms trade center world that, despite the emergence of J-20 people feel very surprised, but to create experimental prototype to mass production, China’s military enterprises still experience a long period of time. (Compiled: Compass)
