Japan’s new tank can deal with the special forces the world’s most expensive cost
TK-X Japan, the future main battle tanks and wheeled motorized chariot new developments the total purchase amount will be at least 600
4 10, China Association for Science and Technology in Beijing released China’s space science, biomedical engineering report on the development of 28 disciplines, including the first release of “weapons science and technology disciplines Development Report” (hereinafter referred to as the “Report”) caused a high degree of public opinion at home and abroad attention. China reports first disclosed in weapons research in recent years in all areas of significant progress made, showing some weapons technology has been catching the world’s advanced level.
report shows that China’s armored device has initially established a complete system; armored vehicles’ mobility, firepower, protection, “the three performance has been improved; design methods from generation design, second copy to Start with independent intellectual property rights; high-power diesel engine, fast burning, high-pressurized, high temperature cooling and other key technology research and application device has reached the main battle armor can be equipped to compete with the world advanced level. Guided weapons in the field, the initial formation of the anti-tank missiles, homing shells, artillery missiles, guided bombs and unguided rockets of the series. Many foreign media have “reported” expressed great concern.
in unmanned aerial vehicles, nuclear submarines, the concept of information warfare and other high-tech weapons and flying times, why is called “traditional” tank technology is still able to cause so much attention?
versatility for countries not to relax on the tank technology research
foreign media is so concerned about “reports” because technology is versatile tank . Same kind of bombs, tank is installed in the ground-based anti-tank equipment, installed in aircraft and helicopters is air-launched anti-tank missiles, launch platforms, the principle is the same damage.
and now from a global point of view, anti-tank missiles, armor-piercing capability is still the focus of military power. During the Cold War, the United States attaches great importance to how to deal with the huge Soviet armored forces, one of the strategies is to develop anti-tank missiles, and stressed by the helicopter load in order to quickly shift focus and fire.
Lockheed Martin AGM-114 “Hellfire” is a product of this strategy. Although they are not supposed to race on the Soviet Union in World War II, but almost involved in since the Vietnam War until the Iraq war, all wars, a major U.S. military helicopter containing 30 years of anti-tank missiles, and has been a gradual monopolization of the U.S. air-launched anti-missile field.
for the problems exposed in the Gulf War, the U.S. military to “hell fire” of the seeker, autopilot, warhead, fuse and other electronics has been redesigned, so called “Hellfire Ⅱ “with a range from 8,000 meters to 9,000 meters, the flight speed to Mach 1.1, the laser seeker not only the introduction of advanced anti-jamming measures, can effectively avoid the enemy’s implementation of active and passive optical interference, especially reduce the impact of natural factors, as used in the Gulf War, “hell fire” is sometimes erroneously received laser scattering dust and water vapor, but the target reflected laser “turn a blind eye.”
2002 in the second half, in order to meet the needs of the war in Iraq, Lockheed Martin completed in less than a year of “hell fire Ⅱ” improvements, makes it particularly suitable to deal with hiding in caves underground fortifications, buildings and other enclosed spaces within the staff. So far, “Hellfire Ⅱ” (including its improved) the market share remains the world’s first location.
tanks and equipment in the world map still plays an important role
into the 21st century, action against terrorism has become the mainstream of the world. According to international political, military change, developed countries are research and development for future combat in the form of advanced tanks, many developing countries are greatly improving and enhancing the operational performance of existing tanks. Map of the world tanks equipped with the new trends.
Europe (including NATO and the United States and Canada) is the world’s largest area of ??the tank and equipment, totaling more than 56,000 vehicles, accounting for 50% of the total number of tanks the world, including Russia topped the list. Not only are leading, quality is also Europe’s tanks on the star-studded, big names gathered. “Leopard” main battle tanks equipped with 10 countries in Europe, “Leclerc”, “Challenger”, “Ram” main battle tank amazing skill.
the Middle East has always been a powder keg, which is the Middle East of equipment, one of the largest tank density. Israeli tanks density as the largest country in every 10,000 square kilometers land area with 1662 tanks, and the Israeli army in the performance of the advanced “Merkava” tanks account for 1681, its armored strength is evident.
developed in Japan to fight against the special forces of the new tanks, the world’s most expensive
2008 年 2 13, Japan is shown to the media self-developed new tank. The new tank length 9.42 m, width 3.24 m, 2.30 m high and weighs 44 tons, with 120 mm guns and 12.7 mm and 7.67 mm machine guns each one.
The tank weighs 44 tons, than the existing main battle tanks, light tanks, 90 6 tons, with a range of high technology, and equipped to ensure that at night or bad weather can be accurately shooting fire control system, using a short time to installation and removal of modular armor, to one’s own tanks on the battlefield and share intelligence data link system.
New Japan Ground Self-Defense is not only able to deal with enemy tanks and tanks, for example, also has a special forces attack the guerrillas or the threat of new features. Japan said the tank development costs 48.4 billion yen, the cost of a tank of 700 million yen (about $ 7.14 million), is the world’s most expensive tank.
the same time, the Indian Army this year is expected to be fitted out by their self-developed “Arjun” Main Battle Tank. India claimed, “Arjun” main battle tank is the world’s most advanced one of the three tanks. Although the “Arjun” tanks developed a long time also called “the world’s best tank development cycle”, but because it is the development of India’s independence, the tank may be better adapted to the South Asian subcontinent and the hot and humid weather conditions, terrain, and its shape resembles the German ” Leopard 2 “, but also people should not be overlooked.
main battle tanks in the modern urban warfare, there are still important arena
set firepower, force protection and mobility in one of the main battle tanks, from the date of birth is considered the backbone of the modern Army. Cold War that the “King of Land Warfare,” was the cold, but with the war in Iraq, the conflict in Gaza, main battle tanks in fierce fighting in the city once again showing the unique advantages of its position in the national army and therefore to be re- consolidation.
main battle tanks in urban warfare has been widely questioned the effectiveness of 1995 in Grozny, Russian armored forces defeat the scene many people fear. However, more practice shows that in a reasonable and tactical intelligence support to the premise of full tanks in modern urban combat in the role is still difficult to replace. On the battlefield in Iraq, the armored main battle tanks, solid and effective not only reduce the casualties, their firepower can be the first time for the force to provide fire support for friendly reliable psychological support.
as an important form of asymmetric warfare, urban warfare tactics of combat equipment performance requirements more demanding. Originally designed for large-scale field main battle tanks must also be upgraded accordingly to eliminate the new combat the adverse effects of the environment.
In this regard, the U.S. M1A2-TUSK, the German “Leopard 2″-PSO, the French “Leclerc”-AZUR with Israel “Merkava” -4, etc. are outstanding representatives. Although the basic properties of these different models with different features, but its overall design concept there are many similarities. Taking into account the traditional armor-piercing power of the lack of urban warfare, these tanks are specifically added grenades (bombs bursting) the proportion, to give full play to clear obstacles and enemy anti-personnel effect. In particular, some military enterprises developed the “programmable grenade”, to ensure that the projectile flew over the target at the moment of detonation is above, so as to achieve maximum destructive effect.
addition to guns, new weapons, urban warfare, the choice of the auxiliary tank is also under a lot of work. Currently the most popular to be “overhead weapon station system.”
the device is actually a mounted machine gun turret at the top of the remote control, with matching cameras, laser rangefinder and stabilization device, the tank crew can manipulate in the car, which greatly protect the machine gunner safety. In addition, to overcome the tank main gun elevation angle gap, the Israelis are still the “Merkava” tanks fitted with an 60 mm mortar rounds, designed to crack down on fixed fortifications hidden behind the target.
present, people new main battle tanks in urban warfare also praised Canada’s performance, that the superior ability to adapt to the environment is to ensure that its easily deal with “asymmetric challenges” key, the appropriate upgrade material value for money.
In short, the city’s natural armor combat not restricted, the development of modern military technology, making the main battle tank in front of the more powerful threats. With its own operational effectiveness of the continuous expansion of the traditional “King of Land Warfare,” in the future will continue to create new glories. (Li Li)
