中广网 Beijing on July 6, according to Voice of China” Global Chinese Radio Network “12:14 report , Air Force flight demonstration team performances machine F -10 New Look at the same time, by the Central Academy of Fine Arts design team has been through four paint program began in the civil aviation GOLD comments, and accept the vote. The four options are navy blue, air force blue, medium gray and light gray, paint we see on the page display, each program is divided into side view and a 32-second video Panorama exhibited. Speaking of J-10 fighter, which is independently developed by China’s new fighter, let’s look at it.
Validation of F-10 project from the beginning was the 1980s and by the Chengdu Aircraft Company 811 Aircraft Design Institute designed the 1988 re-positioning of this new fighter design in a new technology medium-sized multi-purpose fighter aircraft to replace the huge Chinese Air Force J-6, J 7 5 fleet and strong and effective response was the same type of Western fighters. J-10 West will be divided into a typical third-generation fighter aircraft, that it is the first Chinese-made military equipment, third-generation fighter, the first truly free and excellent, a double-ground combat capability of the domestic aircraft. 60th anniversary of the parade, the the August flight demonstration team F-10 fighter overall facelift. August aerobatic team to drive China has independently developed the latest, best embodies the Air Force strength, China’s great power status commensurate with performance machine, J-10 is the best choice. Let’s connect the Voice of China military observers Yong-Chun Liang.
Moderator: It is reported that such things as aircraft painting has been in the industry prior to the internal implementation of the Why to the general public for comments?
Yong-Chun Liang: August flight demonstration team, the painting collection to the public program, which is the first time first time. Before such things as are within the basic design, leadership finalized a decision, and ordinary people seem to not matter, but this is not the same. Open call the program a few months time, there are just more than 1.3 million Internet users click on browse, of which 35 million people to vote, more than 2,500 of the message thread. This fully reflects the people on the flight demonstration team’s care and love. No matter the flight demonstration team adopted a new paint scheme, through the participation of the whole activity will significantly narrow the distance between Air Force and the ordinary people.
Moderator: Speaking of aircraft painting, my first thought was some of the U.S. military during World War II fighters, they painted the nose shark head is very visual impact, aircraft painting there is nothing particular about it?
Yong-Chun Liang: Military aircraft are basically silver and dark gray paint, these colors are close and the sky background. Especially in the early close combat them, as you just said World War II, this coating allows the aircraft and the sky blend, the enemy is not easy to find, is a real value. But now the air is often the case in the conducted over the horizon, the pilot depends mainly on the search for enemy radar and not by the naked eye, so the paint color of the hidden function of the aircraft more diluted. However, the identity of the plane pattern is varied, which is the world an important part of the Air Force culture.
you just talked about World War II, the U.S. Pacific battle fighter pilot like his own head into a grimace of a large shark printing pattern. Flying Tigers fighter especially the United States are of this form. They are said to rival the Japanese more afraid of sharks. Now the U.S. military participated in some of the old World War II flight unit also retains this tradition, to draw a shark on the plane icon.
Another example is in the Korean War, the Chinese Air Force has a requirement volunteers, who laid an enemy, who’s plane can be printing a red five-pointed star. Wang of China’s famous air heroes of 9 aircraft inkjet five-pointed star, representing that he had shot down nine U.S. aircraft. For the fighter, I do not think this is more beautiful than a painting.
Moderator: Come talk to four F-10 paint scheme, if you vote, which one do you choose?
Yong-Chun Liang: Frankly, I think, now the four programs also are not particularly desirable.
flight demonstration team is a national Air Force team, is the country’s business card. It’s painting, no matter the color or pattern, are very particular about.
we look look at the major world powers of flight demonstration teams, such as the United States, “Thunderbird,” the Russian “Warriors”, French “French soldiers on patrol,” and so they have chosen the red aircraft painting , white and blue, because it is the United States, France and Russia national flag colors. Thunderbirds demonstration team on both sides of the vertical tail plane is also the printing of 13 stars, representing the American Stars and Stripes and the early days of the 13 states, the national characteristics of the aircraft painting is very clear. Italian Air Force demonstration team called the “three-color arrows” as the name implies, it is chosen the Italian flag painted red, white and green color. British “Red Arrows” show the flag team also used the basic color, but it is a red-based colors. Because red is the traditional British uniform color. This painting seems both national characteristics, but also embodies the tradition of the army.
topic back to our flight demonstration team up. What kind of paint colors and patterns to better reflect the Chinese characteristics and the ethos of the Chinese Air Force? Can also be a good refined look. The four coating in the present scenario, we can see, including the national flag, emblem also have these basic elements, but the feeling still is not very striking, and the color and pattern design seems to need to have a stronger impact force. Now submitted to you in this online program is not necessarily the final four programs continue through the collective wisdom, I think there will be a better solution introduced.
