characters Biography: Li Shujiang, wheeled howitzer side team to force their own party leader.
party leader had been a scout
Xinhua military: to see your profile, previously had been a scout should be, right?
Lishu Jiang: Yes. I was six months ago to Zhezhi Artillery, formerly the Army Reconnaissance Battalion when the battalion commander. After the new troops, a role I am also facing the problem of conversion. The force has completed 10 years ago to motorized mechanization changes. And where I artillery regiment is equipped with a new self-made force howitzer, less traditional infantry elements. But after the visit to the regimental history museums, I feel heavy military heritage of the revolutionary spirit, a strong fighting spirit, is eternal. As for myself, but also stressful. “Bear one soldier, the flaming nest”, to do a good job of military officers, the military must be fully own quality, especially the learning of new techniques and equipment performance.
firepower shock organs
Xinhua military: new self-force howitzer can also fight alone?
Lishu Jiang: Yes. Our own force howitzer wheeled equipment either company, platoon way set operations can also be a single shot into combat, but require the rear of the command and control departments to provide information. This forced the characteristics of howitzer, by definition, is not only capable of firing mortar shells and grenades are also capable of firing shrapnel. The high degree of automation equipment can be fully automatic loading. Its main mission is to fight to suppress or destroy the enemy’s effective strength, but also to destroy enemy bunkers and other field command post or a fixed ground target.
Xinhua Military: Why in a gun on a combination of two functions?
Li Shujiang: mortar fire curve can attack hidden behind the target horizon. For example, 100 mm self-assault guns, mainly Zhimiao shooting. If you encounter mountain, building shelter, etc., we can play this role in a mortar. Reconnaissance and intelligence by getting in front of our car in the road in the firing of the calculation, geographic reach, we can immediately opened fire shooting, then quickly move on. This type of equipment the fire is very strong. When participating in the shooting, when the shells exploded, a kind of shock the feeling of internal organs.
howitzer forced to adapt their own hills, urban warfare
Xinhua military: military parade training, equipment, and tactical training is also very different, right?
Li Shujiang: is this. But the goal is the same, that is win win. In the military build-mobilization meeting, I spoke to said we should take part in the 60th anniversary of National Day military parade as a “battle”, the training ground as a battlefield. Compared to the 50 National Day military parade, military parade this year, new equipment will almost certainly change.
Xinhua military: You feel this type of equipment suitable for fighting in what terrain?
Lishu Qiang: I feel more suitable for operations in hilly areas, urban combat operations and plain. You can also mountain warfare, but in the mountain, the mechanized equipment can easily be trapped opponents attack. And in terms of trends from operations should be carried out combined operations with other equipment, would be better. The operations in a complex electromagnetic environment, in particular, the key is to keep the smooth conductor contact. (Interview by Xinhua military correspondent Zheng Wenhao)
