India’s new carrier will be carrying nuclear warheads, ballistic missiles are equipped with the world’s first
Indian Navy aircraft carrier the next two new renderings
data for: Indian aircraft carrier with ballistic missiles from the Army-type” Prithvi “short-range ballistic missile Evolution from
中广网 Beijing on February 11 news (reporters Sun Li) in early 2010, only one aircraft carrier the Indian Navy, “virrat” number, while the original development of the very large aircraft development program ( that is to build at least three, and if possible will build five aircraft carriers), and gradually built up a number at least in Asia, the strongest aircraft carrier battle groups fighting the idea, seems to have been dashed. Although in the eyes of many, the development of India’s aircraft carrier is not ideal for the road go far without success, but the Navy recently accepted a CCTV expert Li Jie told reporters that the Indian Navy aircraft carrier development path has its own Features: The construction or modification, or plan to purchase various types of aircraft carrier deck landing approach were similar, both skid-type, the move will help the old and new aircraft carriers of the natural convergence and transition; carrier aircraft models combinations for the MiG-29K fighters and LCA, different from other countries; can be installed on an aircraft carrier can carry nuclear warheads of ballistic missiles, a move for the world’s first aircraft carrier.
Indian aircraft carrier development, it is not ideal because: commissioned by the Navy has 50 years of “virrat” sign, although repeated during the overhaul and modification, but because of the early to the end of life age, will be delayed a few years at most. India developed “blue sky” Guardian of the aircraft carrier construction process does not seem smooth, the original idea put into service in 2012 is difficult to achieve (approximately 2014 or so); by Russia responsible for the modified “Gorshkov Navy Marshal, “the carrier’s completion date is dragged, a sky-rocketing costs ($ 2.3 billion has been finalized). More people are worried that imported Russian MiG-29K carrier-based fighter aircraft combat capability than the United States is still a considerable gap, and now Russia and India also plans to sell MiG-29K carrier-based fighter unit price by 60%. As for the self-development, with the former form of LCA with high and low light fighter, but also because war is mainly the technical performance and delays in schedule put into service; although a lot of problems, time dragged on, but the general idea for the Indian aircraft carrier and construction and development, naval experts, Li Jie said: It builds a set of characteristics in line with India’s aircraft carrier-based aircraft and the overall development of ideas, take a practical building initiatives, etc., have their unique; the fact that the Indian aircraft carrier and The carrier-based aircraft development of the road although not smooth, but by no means a failure, there are many worthy of further study.
Indian Navy active duty and in the construction or modification of various types of aircraft are skid-type
Li Jie naval experts believe that the Indian Navy active duty and in the construction or adapted to various types of aircraft carrier landing deck broadly similar way (all the skid-type); the move will help the old and new aircraft carriers of the natural connection and transition, and significantly reduce the pilot’s training session, reduce maintenance costs, help all types of transfer between aircraft carriers and use, so that the maximum cost-effective.
a lot of information and data show that both the old “virrat” was active aircraft carrier, or being used by Russia, “Admiral Gorshkov” was converted into a “Vic Rama Tia “aircraft carrier, there are set to take off the skid-type deck, but on two different Qiaojiao. For example, “virrat” aircraft is equipped with 12 degrees on the Qiaojiao skid flight deck, ensure “Sea Harrier” type of V/STOL aircraft glide a short distance off operations. The modified “Vic Rama Tia” aircraft carrier flight deck Qiaojiao 14.3 degrees, almost close to the threshold Qiaojiao enough care in a relatively short distance rises relatively heavy (maximum takeoff weight of 22.4 tons) of MiG-29K carrier-based fighter. As for self-development of the “blue sky” Guardian of the aircraft carrier on Qiaojiao at 12-14 degrees, the flight deck length 253 meters, can ensure the MiG-29K, “Sea Harrier” and made in India and other fighters of the LCA off. By 2012, if all three carriers serving in the Indian Navy, when the Indian Navy aircraft carrier will become the largest number in Asia, but also the use of all carrier-based aircraft skid off the aircraft and related technologies. As a result the future, even if any of the Indian Navy aircraft carrier overhaul of the retirement or into the plant, which can be very successful on the aircraft carrier to another carrier on the ground, just some slight adaptation of the training can be in a very short period of time on the other carrier responsible for combat missions.
Not long ago, another thing that the Indian Navy in implementing the skid-type aircraft carrier flight deck’s determination. The end of 2009, the world’s major media spread a message: the United Kingdom due to the financial crisis, ready to be the largest in history, has not yet serving a ship called “Queen Elizabeth” aircraft for sale. After learning that in India, eager to decided to spend ￡ 2.2 billion to buy aircraft carrier aboard a large uncertainty. Of course, India decided to buy the carrier before, certainly gone through a full demonstration. We can say that one very important reason is that the carrier take-off to consider four basic configurations in three and skid-type species is on the flight deck, only one is to use a catapult; In other words, the Indian Navy to be purchased aboard large aircraft carriers, the future is more likely to use the skid-type flight deck. If the next Indian Navy really a dream come true, carrying on the original three Indian Navy aircraft carrier-based aircraft on the twists and turns without any fee, you can as quickly as possible from the “Queen Elizabeth” aircraft to take off, and successfully complete the landing. Thus, as carrier aircraft smooth transition, full load displacement of 65,000 tons of “Queen Elizabeth” was a large aircraft carrier-based aircraft can carry more, enough to form a stronger fighting.
Indian Navy and other countries did not follow the weight, carrier-based aircraft with a light path
Li Jie naval experts believe that the aircraft carrier-based aircraft combinations, the Indian Navy and other countries did not follow the heavy, light aircraft with the road, but rather to highlight their heavy and light aircraft combinations.
previous years, mainly for the U.S. carrier-based fighter aircraft: F-14 “Tomcat” and F-18 “Hornet”, the former maximum takeoff weight of 33.724 tons, which is 22.328 tons (on the ground attack); can be said that the two formed a more ideal weight with a light aircraft carrier. The Indian Navy aircraft carrier for his most are medium-sized aircraft carrier status, select the MiG-29K fighter jets and light aircraft LCA, as the severity of match, to make up for each other; the former maximum takeoff weight of 22.4 tons, while the LCA of the normal take-off weight of only 8.5 tons. At this point, India’s approach with the French, “de Gaulle” aircraft carrier is quite similar. The latter on the severity of the combination of carrier-based aircraft: Rafale fighter M1 (12) and Super Etendard (20), maximum take-off weight of 21.5 tons and 12 tons.
addition to the two planes in the tonnage and load are very different, the Indian Navy’s use of light aircraft carrier – LCA fighter, MiG-29K fighter with a unique matching consideration, especially for the slip ski flight deck needs. Tests proved that the MiG-29K fighter aircraft is ideal for short roll, able to quickly pull within a short distance off. LCA light supersonic multi-role aircraft’s performance is more prominent in this respect: its aerodynamic layout and reasonable, with no horizontal tail of a large delta wing design, outstanding short takeoff and landing capability, is ideal for skid off the deck needs; 40% of the body the use of advanced composite materials, both to reduce the weight, but also a very good stealth performance, in many cases difficult to lock the other missiles and attack it. The machine also features an advanced four-wire redundant digital flight control system, so that the level of first-class handling, driving feel very comfortable.
view of the LCA fighter many parts are put together, and independent research and development, “Carvedilol in the” engine of the plans are scaled back on the ship as soon as possible in order to make it meet the requirements of smooth flying leaps, LCA-ship machine not only reduce the load of 500 kg “body weight” and the installation of a U.S. General’s technology is more mature, higher reliability F404-GE-F2J3 engine. Multifaceted effort, January 4, 2001, the first of LCA fighter finally liftoff. Although LCA fighters dragged the date of service, funding more than doubled 10 times, but the machine after all, is India’s own R & D fighter. However, it is worrying: the future while several of the Indian Navy aircraft carrier, LCA-based aircraft may not be able to catch up field; such as “blue sky” Guardian of the aircraft will be delivered around 2014, the Indian Navy, and the LCA may be 2015 or even After a formal delivery, and can not keep handy. To this end, the Indian Navy has taken some remedial measures: the purchase of 12 MiG-29K, 4 MiG-29KUB, the proposed re-purchase 29 MiG-29K, to be single transition.
first Indian Navy: aircraft carrying nuclear warheads, ballistic missiles can be installed
Navy Li Jie that unique carrier-based air weapons and ultra-quiet “Underwater bodyguard” for the aircraft carrier and its battle group to help prop up a reliable “umbrella”, not only near the enemy’s difficult to rely on the body, but also effective against.
on the new aircraft carrier the Indian Navy, in addition to the more advanced MiG-29 fighter jets and light aircraft LCA, there are several sets of very handy Body “killer”: First, there can be installed in the ship ballistic missiles can carry nuclear warheads, a move for the world’s first aircraft carrier. The ballistic missile is the Army type “Prithvi” short-range ballistic missile from the Evolution. It weighs up to 4 tons, the largest range of 150 km and can carry one ton of nuclear warheads; the explosion when about 6 million tons, equivalent to the Hiroshima atomic bomb in 1945, equivalent to 3 times. Code-named “Dhanush” This missile uses inertial navigation system, produced by India’s own sophisticated computer software control. Its trajectory is more flexible and can be pre-programmed by the programming of six different flight trajectory; However, this type of ballistic missile also has its shortcomings, that must be carried out before launch, the warm liquid fuel from the intended targets, the missile from the vertical, raise the ignition propellant to launch the most successful they have three hours.
Currently, India’s “virrat” aircraft with “Barack” -1 ship-air missile, the new carrier is expected to install a new generation of “Barak” -8 ship-air missiles: the use of 8 standard vertical launch cells and EL/M-224B “Adil” phased array fire control radar; missile tank with automatic search function, to remain on alert around the clock, and the structure is very compact, only 30 Russian aircraft carrier percent of the installation space can be set. “Barak”-8 anti-air missile direct mechanism, the use of 22 kilograms of powerful blast warhead, the incoming missiles and aircraft, can impose a large area of ??destruction; even in relatively harsh conditions, the missile can maintain a high hit probability. The missile is also equipped with adaptive control, sensitive altimeter fuze mode, even if the fight against sea-skimming missile flying 3-4 meters also have a very high probability.
excellent addition to the more incoming targets to deal with space weapons, the new Indian carrier battle group “underwater escort” also has its own unique approach: it is not like other big countries like the aircraft carrier, the use of nuclear-powered attack submarine for their escort, but will use the French developed the “You fish” AIP submarines. This class submarines using water drop shape, the hull surface, to minimize the appendage; coupled with the widespread use of a number of damping noise reduction technology, such as the floating raft vibration technology, such as highly skewed propeller 7 leaves; the preparation of personnel on the boats only 31 people. Therefore, the boat’s very low noise, quiet, very good, difficult to find each other, but in the far distance can be found on the other side. The boat’s underwater combat capability is also very prominent: the type capable of firing torpedoes and submarine-launched anti-ship missiles, and fast recharge capability, including 16 heavy torpedoes, “flying fish” submarine-launched anti-ship missiles, and, when necessary for mines and other weapons loaded.
