Chinese experts said that India is not high performance anti-missile system does not have real value
Data for: Indian missile defense test
中广网 Beijing July 8 news (reporter Zhen-Xi) A senior Indian Defense Ministry has said that India will be tested again in August this year the country’s self-developed ballistic missile defense system. So, India’s performance to the missile defense system? Compared with other countries, what advantages and disadvantages of equipment? For India, how does that help the future of missile defense? On these issues, the reporter interviewed the Second Artillery Command College professors, military experts, Shao-Ling.
India’s missile defense system is a big platter
Correspondent: India’s missile defense system despite a late start, after starting from the 2000 R & D, but very rapid development momentum. Some foreign media comments, India’s missile defense system collection of many strengths, superior performance.
Shao Ling: India’s missile defense system, actually the equivalent of a hodgepodge, a platter, and its self-developed too little, too many things are taking someone else’s. Missile defense system than this, in fact, it is a double block, the first layer is called PAD, high-altitude intercept point, PAD is the use of ballistic missiles – the earth 2, on this basis transformation. India PAD early-warning radar, in fact, introduced from Israel – is the “Green Pine” long-range tracking radar and fire control radar, if the PAD failed to intercept this layer, a lower level, there AAD, AAD its early warning radar from France, “Master” A multi-coordinate radar, interceptor missiles in fact it is Israel to help India develop. So this point of view, although India’s missile defense system is a double block, but it’s a lot of things do not belong to them. In fact, not only in the missile defense system, a lot of weapons and equipment in India are imported from other countries. So look at individual level may be good, but the overall compatibility is relatively low.
Indian anti-missile system in the fire capacity, reaction time performance in general
Correspondent: It is reported that India plans to deploy the first phase of the 2012 anti- missile system. Compared to some foreign anti-missile system, India’s advantages and disadvantages of this equipment does what?
Shao Ling: India’s missile defense system there are too many things from abroad, the lack of independent research and development, the overall compatibility will not be good. Now, it’s missile defense system to the mobile deployment is the way, but it’s firepower capacity is very limited, is a car a bomb. Under normal circumstances, as the interceptor missile, certainly more than the number of incoming missiles, so that it can intercept the likelihood of success. Such as Israel’s “Arrow” anti-missile system is Six containers, up to three-an even playing one of six. The end of the U.S. high-altitude interception system has just conducted an experiment and also a success, it is ten to twelve even loaded. Patriot 3 missile to sixteen connected equipment. Now India’s anti-missile system is a vehicle of a bomb, it is necessary to re-launch after the first plate, the efficiency is very low, not continuous fighting, the system response time is longer, this is a big problem.
India’s success but no real test, although the value of
Correspondent: It is reported that India had conducted in March this year, a missile defense system-related test, but failed. Some analysts believe that India is scheduled for August this year, once again test the likelihood of success is not great, even if successful, gold content is not high.
Shao Ling: India’s missile defense system so far carried out four experiments. In addition to the failure in March this year, this time, before November 2006, in December 2007, 09 March each year for once, these three have been successful. However, the larger the water, inside the more problematic. In the experiment, it is in the pre-set conditions, and all of the dummy parameters are well known, to intercept incoming missiles and missile positions very close – less than 100 km, a little “capricious , fighting amongst ourselves “feeling, and real combat environment that much difference. So, I think the success of these three gold content is too low. Then, in August of this year’s experiment have any great significance, you have to look at the experimental conditions in a completely known or unknown circumstances. Also as in the past, such as experimental, not much significance. But if they really can detect in the case of unknown incoming missiles, and be able to successfully intercept incoming missiles, we can say that India’s missile defense system actually has a real value.
