Russian media said about half of F -20 fighter technology from Russia
Data Figure: China’s fifth-generation fighter demonstrator F -20
According to Russia’s” Military Observer “website reported on August 8, China’s fifth-generation fighter aircraft F -20 flight has more than six months. Flight from the moment the parties’ comments on the aircraft has not stopped too.
analysts had pointed out, much like the Russian-made Su-F -20 -47 and the MiG 1.44 and the U.S. F-22 and F-35′s collection. Nevertheless, the emergence of China’s military aircraft industry has made another great achievement. F -20′s successful maiden flight makes China become the United States and Russia after the third fifth-generation fighter aircraft developed countries. In addition to these three countries, only Japan, India and South Korea in carrying out the fifth-generation fighter, while the European countries are still the fourth-generation fighter to improve.
Russian media said the F -20 exotic neither direct, nor is “completely independent” research results. There are a range of experts believe that the F -20 project about half of the technologies from Russia. The only way to explain why the Chinese people will advance so quickly the fifth generation fighter development program.
American International Institute for Strategic Studies of the experts believe that the F -20 stealth performance to be inferior to F-22, but was able to carry more ammunition and fuel. Meanwhile, the emergence of -20 F that China’s military technology has made significant research breakthroughs. Of course, the emergence of the prototype F -20 does not mean that China has with the challenges of Air Force Air Force strength. In fact, a new type of aircraft from the flight to the Army at least ten years time. For example, although the U.S. F-22 flight in 1990 already, but until 2005 the U.S. military equipment in volume.
Russian media said, significantly more than the shape of F -20 United States and Russia’s fifth-generation fighter, it’s a feature that is causing widespread concern in the outside world is an important reason. Some experts believe that the great body of the aircraft designed to have a large maritime targets of attack capability. And a long time, the U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups as the Chinese military has been one of the major threats. However, in order to penetrate the protection of U.S. Navy aircraft carrier battle groups close to -20 F based development platform out of the air attack success rate is not high.
Russian media said, although the larger size -20 F, but still can mount only a small tactical anti-ship missile, can not the huge aircraft carrier battle groups to the cause substantial damage. To prove this point, only light of China’s active range air-launched anti-ship missiles and the U.S. “Aegis” range of carrier-based air defense system relatively simple. In addition, the U.S. Navy carrier-based AWACS will further enhance the “Aegis” system against small airborne targets. China’s tactical anti-ship missiles with a range in the 150-250 km, even if they can break through the U.S. Navy’s air defense ring, the displacement of more than tons will not necessarily, highly reliable carrier hull causing substantial damage.
