中广网 Beijing on December 9 news (Sun reporter Lee) November 17, 2009, the Navy in the Pacific United States and Japan, codenamed ANNUALEX 21G large-scale military exercises at sea, ANNUALEX 21G means 21 times the annual military exercises. Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force sent by the latest numbers on the aircraft, including multi-standard ships in the exercise. U.S. forces dispatched a resident of East Asia CVN-73 George – Washington aircraft carrier battle groups and amphibious strike group participated in the exercise LHD2. The exercise, the United States and Japan participated in the exercise equipment so special? “Cutting-edge military technology,” guests at the Second Artillery Command College Professor Shao-Ling received extensive military correspondent in an exclusive interview with Sun Li.
out the four main U.S. Navy ships
First up are all among the Big Brother warships – the United States, George – Washington aircraft carrier. It is the Nimitz class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, 6 destroyers, commissioned in 1992, Captain 333 meters wide and 77 m from the bottom to the mast 74 meters high, equivalent to a 20 multi-storey high building, full load displacement is more than 10 tons, is a real monster. It can carry 70 fixed-wing aircraft, including combat attack aircraft, electronic warfare aircraft, early warning aircraft, anti-submarine aircraft, etc., among the world’s tonnage, the largest and most technologically advanced and most capable aircraft of .0. From September 2008, Japan’s Yokosuka naval base became home port of Washington, this is the first one in Japan stationed on the nuclear-powered ships. Compared to the previously deployed in the area, now retired conventionally powered aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk, Washington and combat capability in life is natural to be much higher.
ill-timed Seawolf-class attack submarines
may be many listeners of the USS Washington is no stranger when it comes to Seawolf-class attack submarines, it would not help with the somewhat mysterious, and for two reasons, first, it is the world’s most advanced, most effective fighting multi-purpose attack submarines, and the second, too few, the U.S. Navy a total of only three built. So, can the exercise of which it is easy to see its presence.
“Sea Wolf” in the 1980s began to design, when the Cold War is not over, so it’s mission is to give the United States in the deep ocean in full confrontation with the Soviet nuclear submarine, the global hegemony. To this end, the United States at all costs, spare no effort to build the Seawolf-class was the absolute leader in operational performance and extraordinary power, perform anti-submarine, anti-ship of land, mines, escort and other tasks, is hailed as “the 21st century nuclear submarine.”
However, “Sea Wolf” untimely, the collapse of the Soviet Union it lost its rival, the hero no longer have its uses, plus up to staggering cost of more than a billion dollars, so the United States After the construction of three, put the interest turned to performance, although slightly inferior but more suited to its new strategy of “Virginia” class body. Seawolf-class captain 99.4 m, width 12.9 meters, the aspect ratio of 7.7, the water displacement of 7460 tons, submerged displacement of 9150 tons, the maximum underwater speed of 35, the maximum potential depth 600 meters. Noise level of only Los Angeles-mod 1/10, is the first generation of Los Angeles-class 1/70, so stealth is extremely advantageous. In weapons, the Seawolf-class equipped with eight 660 mm torpedo tubes, capable of firing Tomahawk cruise missiles, long-range anti-submarine missiles, Sea Lance, MK-48 torpedo Adelaide Karp, Harpoon ship missiles total of 50. In addition, the Los Angeles-class boat equipped with a level more advanced than the type of integrated sonar systems and integrated battle command system. Participating in the exercise of the “Connecticut” is the Seawolf-class boat No. 2, December 11, 1998 in service.
Wasp-class amphibious assault ship “Essex” was
in the formation which looks quite a bit similar with the aircraft carrier Hornet is the U.S. class amphibious assault ship Essex Road. “Wasp” class is the world’s largest tonnage, carrying the largest multi-purpose amphibious assault ship helicopter, set the helicopter assault ship, amphibious assault ships, dock landing ships, amphibious transport ships, hospital ships and other functions in one, with strong integrated combat capability. The main task of the class ship is to support landing operations, followed by the implementation of the sea tasks. It is designed to carry the U.S. Navy AV-8B Harrier V/STOL aircraft and new LCAC air cushion landing craft and design. Standard displacement of 28,233 tons full load displacement of 40,532 tons; captain of 257.3 meters, width 42.7 meters, the flight deck 250 meters long, 32.3 meters wide; life 9500 sea miles/18. “Wasp” class can carry different equipment according to the task. For example, in landing operations, the carrier 42 “Sea Knight” helicopters and six “Harrier” type of aircraft; tasks in the implementation of the sea, set 20 “Harrier” type of aircraft and six “Sea Hawk” helicopter. Mixed loading of helicopters including “Sea Stallion”, “Sea Cobra” and “weekend in Iraq” and so on. The attack aircraft needed executable, anti-submarine, mine clearance, supply, transport and short-range support missions. In addition, the wasp-class amphibious assault ships carrying landing troops and equipment, and materials of the capacity is also very strong, the typical landing force landing carrying capacity of 74 persons, 5 Ml tanks, 25 light armored vehicles, eight M198 howitzer, 68 trucks, l fuel vehicles, vehicles and other types of vehicles. Ship there is a more complete after the hospital ship’s medical facilities, 600 beds and more than one operating room, clinic, etc. Essex is the No. 2 Hornets class ships, commissioned in 1991.
Ticonderoga class guided missile cruiser “test Pace” was
Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser Perth test which take air in formation No. task. U.S. Navy Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser can be described as reputed world, wearing a number of laurels, and “the most advanced cruiser,” “epoch-making fighting and vitality” and so on. The reputation of the come is because it is equipped with advanced Aegis air defense system, which is contemporary to improve air defense capability of surface ships a landmark symbol of its R & D as a strong opponent with the Soviet Union. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union against U.S. aircraft carrier idea is to use a lot of anti-ship missile “saturation attack”, which the U.S. Navy’s a variety of traditional air defense weapons bloated. So, it began to develop a revolutionary anti-saturation with the Aegis air defense system to combat capability, and in 1983 the first equipment in the Ticonderoga class guided missile cruisers. The system in the airspace around the whole multi-target search and alert at the same time, able to multi-target fire control tracking, but also provide threat judgments and decision-making, weapons, fire control and distribution functions; addition to air combat, it is in the sea, the other side of anti-submarine warfare operations and can also provide these functions. Therefore, the “Aegis” system is actually a whole ship-based air defense weapons and integrated command and fire control system, after the upgrade and installation of standard 3 missiles, it also has the ability to intercept tactical ballistic missiles. Ticonderoga class guided missile cruiser’s primary mission is to provide air protection for the aircraft carrier battle groups, taking into account the formation of the regional anti-submarine warfare and the other side of the sea, the main weapons and equipment ship-to-air missile, “Tomahawk” cruise missiles, anti-ship missiles, anti-submarine missiles, torpedoes, helicopters and so on. Pace is the reference number of the No. 17 class cruiser ship.
Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force – extra-heavy destroyer “day to”
above is a major U.S. Navy ships participating in the exercise situation, let’s look at Japan. Japanese warships participating in this, the most notable service in March this year is probably the “day to” the destroyer, and it is “on the” class of the first ship, the largest tonnage of ships in Japan, 197 meters long, width of 33 meters, the standard displacement of 13,950 tons full load displacement of 18,000 tons. From the size of the scale, the “day to” the length, width, displacement and so with the British Navy light aircraft carrier rather than the number of the Italian Garibaldi, the Prince of Asturias, Spain and Thailand No. poor Kerry? Nalvbeike number of light aircraft carriers. Ship deck capable of landing the Japanese land, sea and air self-defense in all big helicopter can accommodate four patrol helicopter while landing, hangar can accommodate up to 11 helicopters, capable of carrying about 340 passengers. Listeners who might feel, how could such a big ship called a destroyer it? Should be a helicopter carrier fishes ah. Indeed. After World War II pacifist constitution of Japan as being the exclusive defense and military strategy limitations in the development of military power is very low key, even at the self-dwarfing, such as warships, no matter what are known as the frigate, of course, there are strings No. DE and DD difference in the Chinese translation, sometimes known as frigates, sometimes known as frigates or destroyers, according to the string. As to the class on the type of vessels, although the Japanese foreign called helicopter destroyers (DDH), but in view of its displacement and the number of helicopters, helicopter aircraft carrier has been fully compliant with the standards. Externally, on the level with a starboard island superstructure, deck the whole formula, with the carrier is also very similar. Of course, since there is no deck or Ski Jump ejection device class does not have to take off and land on regular fixed-wing aircraft. Many carrier-based helicopters and ship equipment, artillery, missiles, torpedoes and other weapons, advanced radar systems, so that the “day to” have a powerful attack and anti-submarine capability. The ship is also equipped with advanced command and communication system can be used as a flagship. August this year, “at the” level 2 of the ship, “Ise” was also been launched, in 2011 service.
equipment of Atago-class Aegis guided missile destroyer “Ashigara” No.
and U.S. Ticonderoga class guided missile cruisers are equipped with the same Atago-class Aegis guided missile destroyer is enough to handle numbers. From the exterior view, that is, by four octagonal planar array composed of a fixed radar antenna, which is the “Aegis” core of the system – multi-function phased array radar. Number is enough to handle the No. 2 Atago-class ship, is the latest Japanese Aegis destroyers, March 13, 2008 the official service, a displacement of 7700 tons full load displacement of 10,000 tons. Before the Atago class, the Japanese already have an Aegis ship, is Diamond level, the construction of a total of four. Atago-class level improved as King Kong, the biggest difference is its Aegis system to upgrade to the “Aegis” baseline 7. Aegis baseline 7 is the core of SPY-1D (V) phased array radar, the system allows both detection and tracking of ships 1,000 targets, and also hit one of the 20 goals (in actual combat may only be track 900 against 12), but also has the ability to track ballistic missiles. In firepower, the Atago class destroyers equipped with two groups of US-made MK-41 vertical launch missile system, a total of 96, more than six diamond level. Atago-class now standard equipment on-2MR Block Ⅲ A/B-to-air missiles. Standard-2MR Block Ⅲ A flight speed of Mach 2.5, the maximum range of 167 km, shot 10-19800 meters high, with middle inertia correction and the last paragraph of instructions plus radio semi-active radar homing composite guidance. And compared to standard-2MR Block Ⅲ, Block Ⅲ A type of range, accuracy and performance, have greatly improved, high-explosive warhead with the explosive film also has a greater speed, greater capacity for incoming targets damage. And can be more effective against low altitude high-speed small goals (such as sea-skimming anti-ship missiles), can be 20-25 kilometers away from the ship to intercept altitude of 10-15 meters from the sea flying low altitude targets. Standard-2MR Block Ⅲ B-type is “standard” -2 series, the latest model, the missile due to the additional set of auxiliary infrared sensors into a dual-mode terminal guidance, and the logical extension of the missile guidance, enabling the missile to better treatment from the ship sensors and missile seeker to upload the information to improve the flight of missiles in the final stages of performance against key targets. The future, but also in Japan, Atago-class number on the ability to intercept ballistic missiles equipped with the standard -3 Block Ⅰ anti-aircraft missiles. In anti-submarine, the Atago-class direct introduction of the U.S. integrated anti-submarine combat system Aegis combat system, but did not follow the King on the domestic level system. The system has a long-range target detection ability of many types of water and the shallow waters of low noise and low-speed navigation of the submarine submarine excellent detection capabilities. Ship is equipped with the ASROC anti-submarine anti-submarine weapons and missiles and MK-46 Mod5 type and type 73 light anti-submarine torpedoes. Also equipped with an SH-60J multi-purpose anti-submarine helicopters. In addition, the Atago-class hull is also based on the Diamond level made significant improvements. Such as the addition of a helicopter base, increased stealth capabilities, and so on.
