Indian Su-30 fighter defense network is difficult to break China’s nuclear strike
data for: Indian air force Su-30MKI multirole fighters
With India growing buildup of mine, some of the Indian military person’s tone has become increasingly hard. According to the United States, “Defense News” reported on August 11, Indian Air Force has a military base near the Indian border in the deployment of a multi-purpose Su-30MKI fighter squadrons. Indian Air Force officials said the fighters can carry nuclear weapons, aerial refueling, it can into the Chinese hinterland.
Su-30 for China to deploy
reported that the Su-30 fighter squadrons will be deployed in India’s northeastern Assam’s Tezpur Air Force Base. A senior Indian Air Force officials further revealed that, near the border of another base — Jia Buwa Air Force Base also be upgraded to accommodate the Sukhoi fighter jets, transport aircraft and even medium-sized multi-role fighter. He said the medium multi-role fighter will be in close proximity to China’s northeast and northwest Pakistan near the patrol. Reported that the Indian move was to strengthen defense capabilities against China. To further show the deterrent capability of the Su-30, a special Indian Air Force officials emphasized that the support of the air refueling, the Su-30 carrying nuclear weapons completely into the Chinese hinterland.
huge funds in support of the Indian Air Force advanced fighter force is expanding. According to “Defense News” reports that the Indian government in June this year approved a $ 3.3 billion in procurement contracts, from Russia to buy 42 Su-30 fighter jets, which will enable the Indian Air Force Su-30 fighter in 2018 reached 272, Su-30 will become the largest number of Indian Air Force’s main fighter. Indian Su-30 can be relied upon the claims of Chinese nuclear deterrence is not all puff. Indian air force Su-30 carrying the fuel on its own can fly nearly 4.5 hours and a maximum range of 5,000 kilometers. If there is accompanying tanker protection, can be further expanded its range to 8,000 km. In addition, the Su-30 using double cockpit design, two long-haul flight, the pilot can turn to drive, maintain their strength. Just from a technical perspective, the Indian Air Force Su-30 fleet does have the ability to launch long-range nuclear attack.
fortune combat capabilities continue to improve
measure of a country the strength of the Air Force long-range strike capability, the number of aerial refueling and airborne cruise missiles, two performance important indicator species. Currently, the Indian Air Force has been equipped with six Russian-made “IL” -78 aerial refueling, which can effectively extend the range of fighter combat.
Indian Air Force has recently frequently with the United States, France and other powers established the Air Force held joint military exercises, “IL” -78 aerial tankers along with several Air Force Su-30 fighter jets and competing against the West. These preliminary exercises with the Indian Air Force in unfamiliar airspace for aerial refueling.
also pays special attention to the Indian Air Force fighter aircraft equipped with advanced cruise missiles to enhance its long-range precision strike capability. Indian military sources had “Chinese Defense Review,” said the Indian Air Force plans to Tezpur, Jia Buwa Air Force Base in the deployment of a squadron of Su-30 fighters. “Chinese Defense Review,” analysis said that if the Indian Air Force Su-30 fighter planes to carry the “Brahmos” cruise missile from the air near the Indian border bases, the range can cover Kunming, Chengdu, Chongqing, Nanning, Guilin, Lanzhou, China can attack in Yunnan, Qinghai’s second airport. “BrahMos” missile strike distance of more than 290 km, a 10-meter height of the highest speed of 2.8 Mach hit targets on the ground, is extremely difficult to intercept.
addition to the jointly developed with Russia, “BrahMos” missile, India is actively developing a product called “Fearless” long-range cruise missiles onboard.
According to the U.S., “Aviation Week” had revealed that Indian officials said, “Fearless” will be able to reach the missile’s range from 800 to 1000 km, a range of “BrahMos” of three. Article pointed out sharply that “the missile mounted Sukhoi fighter jets will be a long-range strike platform, and have strategies to combat potential.”
Clearly, India is working to create its own space-based strategy strike force, which is an important part of its fleet of Su-30MKI multi-role fighter equipped with advanced long-range cruise missiles.
means to counter China rich
tanker and Su-30 fighter jets equipped with nuclear missiles, is indeed a very powerful combination. But comparing China and India’s integrated military strength, “Su-30 into the Chinese hinterland,” such tactics actually difficult to achieve.
After years of unremitting efforts, Chinese Air Force has been equipped with the J-10, J-11 advanced fighter planes, ground radar surveillance network and “Air Police 2000″ AWACS assistance, which can effectively intercept the invading enemy.
According to the United States, “Strategy Page” website reported on August 6, the most advanced home-made Chinese Air Force J-11 fighter first flight in China over the Tibet Autonomous Region exercises. While foreign media speculation that J-11 fighters stationed in Tibet is still not long, but its attitude was demonstrated plateau leap increasingly sophisticated operational capabilities.
visible, such as the Su-30 design did not use the stealth fighter is difficult to break through the Chinese Air Force tight defense network.
Although China has stuck to the “striking” the nuclear deterrence strategy, but the Second Artillery Corps equipment, “East Wind” series of ballistic missiles and cruise missiles, already has a long-range precision strike capability.
JH -7 Chinese Air Force fighter-bombers, H-6 medium bomber with the same “nuclear delivery potential.” The face of nuclear blackmail, the Chinese army has a variety of powerful counter-measures, which are temporarily in India have a strategic advantage.
Some analysts pointed out that the Indian military often create the “China threat” theory, and sometimes hard-line stance against China, China actually not really looking for trouble, just “a fictitious enemy” in order to obtain to find an excuse for more military spending.
