After the end of the Cold War for quite some time, although the Russian military-industrial sector continued to strengthen internal to China’s military industrial capacity is sometimes expressed concern, in particular, imitation weapons, but not in the mainstream within the Russian military has long been publicly stressed that “China threat . ”
However, recently, in view of the Russian media by the West, “China threat” effect, Moscow continue to call the “China threat” theory, so that the Russian military has also been greatly affected. In the Russian interior, “the next 20 years, China is the need to pay attention to potential adversaries” and other voices are rising. Restructuring a significant portion of Russia’s military power into the Far East concerns the strengthening of defense forces, above.
US-Russian relations with the Obama era, Russia and the European Union and NATO do to ease relations between the Russian eastern border again to focus on defense issues. The first two Su-27SM modified groups are deployed in the Far East Military District Air Force, the bulk of the T-90A tanks equipped with the first fifth Siberian Military armored division, is the best description.
Russia is very concerned about the current development of Chinese air force. Although the book, the Russian air force Su -27,400 at least nearly 449 MiG-29, but they are mostly built in Soviet times, maintenance, pilot training
factors are even weaker than China. On the contrary, the Chinese Air Force has equipped 281 Su-30MKK, Su-27, F -11 and other fighters, the F-10 equipment, the number has reached five groups, all of these instructions, the Chinese Air Force has been greatly reduced with the Russian Air Force between the technological advantage. Especially in the Russian armed forces before the fifth-generation fighter.
as the mid-transition, the Russian Air Force from 2009 to strengthen the construction, expansion of domestic demand. Equipped with two groups in the Su-27SM fighter improved after the Air Force Commander Zelin said: Air Force no longer intends to improve more Su-27SM, Su-35 is mainly due to be received and the next – generation fighter aircraft.
from 2011 to 2015, the Air Force will be equipped with 64 new multi-purpose fighter, so you can retake the Chinese air force’s tactical advantage. As for the strategic strike forces, relying on the current continues to improve among the 15 Tu-160, at least 90-100 Tu-22M3, the formation of strategic deterrence in China more than enough.
first. Starting in 2011, the Russian Air Force receives the most important task is to 48 Su-35, the 4 + + generation multi-role fighter, has been basically decided not to sell to China. Tactical data published according to Sukhoi, a
Su-35 fighter jets integrated combat, at least 2.5 times the Chinese air force’s Su-27SK. With the Russian Air Force Su-35 equipped with a new generation of multi-purpose long-range air to air missiles RVV-SD, Kh31AD such as air-to-ship missiles will be deployed progressively. 48 Su-35′s overall combat effectiveness will be more than 100 Chinese Air Force Su-30MKK or 150 SU-27SK (J-11) of combat forces.
2009 Russian Air Force also started to receive 34 new production of the MiG-29SMT. Zelin stressed: the future of the MiG-29 on active duty will be gradually improved to reach the standard MiG-29SMT and MiG-35 is also being considered to receive. By 2011, the Russian Air Force will equip 12 new Su-27SM, and four Su-30M2. In this way, Russia will have in 2011 a total of 60 Su-27SM is active. Obtained in 2011 with 48 Su-35 Sukhoi fighter aircraft of advanced combat capability in general should be flat with the Chinese Air Force.
here must also consider the Su-34 frontline bombers, 34 MiG-29SMT factors. From 2010 to 2013, Sukhoi will be delivered to the Russian Air Force Su-34 frontline bombers 32 in combat capability is far stronger than China’s current model JH-7A fighter-bomber. The latter level of at least a generation behind.
for 2015, the Russian Air Force hopes to five or six years of flight. Start small-volume equipment, fifth-generation fighter aircraft. Troops in the fifth-generation fighter, Russia’s air power superiority of China will be completely restored.
Zelin stressed: the Air Force will continue to improve the MiG-31. For the vast depth of Russia’s Far East region, the MiG-31′s mission is very important. He stressed that Russia is ready to nine brigade of 108 MiG-31 was improved, especially in the radar system, which is the 2015 transition period, the main task of the Russian Air Force.
