If the conflict in the Taiwan Strait Western deduction that U.S. warplanes shot down by a ratio of 6 to 1
Data Figure: Chinese Air Force fighter fleet took off heavy training
LONDON Dec. 31 (Reuters): U.S. Aviation Week reported that 28 sites, the latest Australian Policy Institute conducted a war games show If the outbreak of armed conflict across the Taiwan Straits, U.S. warplanes shot down by air will be 6 to 1 ratio, but the PLA will have the ability to beat with the number of U.S. military aircraft.
In this regard, the Australian Institute of actions and the ability to project policy director Andrew Davis said that even if the U.S. military each missile can destroy a target, but China will still have enough to survive the attack machine , thereby undermining the U.S. tanker, command and control, intelligence gathering aircraft.
Davis said: “The U.S. will fail because it will lose to China’s current fighter sorties and endurance due to a half hour after the outbreak of conflict, Taiwan’s airports will be closed, so all U.S. fighters only take off from Guam or Okinawa mission. As a result, U.S. warplanes in the Taiwan Strait over the deployment time will be very limited. “
fighters for the Navy should begin to take action where problems , Davis replied: “The problem is whether the U.S. aircraft carrier away from the battlefield, close enough to reach the place? since the 1995-1996 Taiwan Strait crisis, the Beijing government has been close to the Chinese aircraft carrier battle groups to prevent the development of the ability which is also the base become a cause of the problem lies. Rand Corporation released a study has not conducted a formal setting such attack on the Chinese military losses caused by the quantity and the same number of missiles the U.S. military, but still have enough power to survive, join tanker, P-3 reconnaissance aircraft and RC-135W intelligence gathering machine of the column.
reported that Davis led the analysis carried out long-term research, and start an investigation on what the air force is the most important, and how the future of the United States and Australia.
Davis said: “Global air force will need a remote, stealth, has been in use and can go high-altitude fighter. They are the basic assets of the regional blockade. These aircraft are equipped with powerful sensors, so the sensor array to carry out any action within the coverage area is extremely dangerous.
affected, Davis began to turn their attention to high-endurance UAV. In accordance with his previous estimates, these UAVs and B-2 does not require as large, but slightly larger than the F-15. Will provide high-endurance unmanned aerial vehicle, especially a large weapons load is not the case – a small bomb similar to a high degree of precision.
reported that the use of high-power microwave, radio frequency pulses or laser directed energy weapons, will be the drone attack sensor suite and part of the communication devices. However, Davis said: “Although $ 80 billion black budget, but I think directed energy weapons will not replace the high-explosive weapons.”
reported that supporters of modern air power that, in operations in Kosovo and Iraq is a successful example of advanced technology. However, Davis questioned, with a little less modern warplanes attacked the military, is this not a fair test. He said: “To be able to respond to third-rate country, we spend a lot of money while winning platform effects are incredible – just need a small amount of this platform, we can completely suppress the relatively small force, and, people free operation, the loss will be small. “
However, in response to the Chinese Air Force, small, high-tech military does not seem wonderful. “China has thousands of surplus MiG-21 aircraft,” Davis said. He said: “Why do not they are made of UAVs? Consumed if a Chinese F-35 aircraft carried four fighters in a missile, then what would happen and, if equipped with the Chinese UAV, will cause a great threat to us, although a MiG-21 UAV does not constitute a major threat, but if China one thousand of such aircraft, and we only have 200 missiles, then there must be struggling to cope with . “(Compiled: Spring)
