Taiwan, “Asia-Pacific Defense” magazine reports the September issue, the Chinese mainland media coverage of the recent death of famous aviation engines recently Experts Wu Grand deeds, from which can be interpreted many valuable technical information.
guess the J-10 with the “Chinese Heart”
reported that a number of lectures in the article Wu Grand deeds, there is a great length Introduction “Taihang” high-thrust turbofan engine, and quoted Wu En Grand disciples and saying: “‘Taihang’ engine was successfully developed, shows that China has independently developed aircraft engines on the road to achieve a significant leap forward in speed of aero-engine of the future career by leaps and bounds lay the foundation for the modernization of national defense is very important. “Although the” Taihang “engine and the chief architect of the En, but it is Miss Grand in the 1980s led to the decision-making presented” accelerate the development of aviation engines on a proposal “, finally led to the” Taihang “engine project.
an anonymous retired Air Force officer in the island of Taiwan, “cutting-edge military arms Forum” commented on CCTV “News Network” program, introduced Miss Grand deeds when the F-10 fighter jet figure, although there is no other explanation, but according to the usual continental style, which is implied to the outside world to spend the J-10 has been developed by China itself, “Taihang” engine.
for China, “Taihang” engine of the application of stereotypes is important, both as a bottleneck in China’s military aviation industry breakthrough masterpiece, it is truly independent of the Chinese aviation industry flag. Prior to this, the F-10 fighter must rely on Russia to provide the AL-31 engines, these aircraft production number, how long can fly right to decide, not entirely in Chinese hands. In the “Taihang” production, the Chinese need to look at Russia’s face, the Chinese air force regiment will not outsiders to grasp, it is critical to national security.
engine into the sound development
U.S. Jamestown Foundation, a China expert Marc David commented that China has knowledge of the existence of errors on the engine, do not realize that “power first” importance, resulting in aircraft, ships and even the car’s engine to rely on foreign technology.
into the 1990s, the Chinese through the development of the J-10, JH -7 and the introduction of Su-27 fighter, deeply felt “heart” seriousness of the problem, start the engine and the whole place machine of equal importance. After 10 years, “Mountains”, “Taihang” and “Tarzan” and other engines of the continuous R & D success, prove that the Chinese aircraft engine R & D system to mature. Publicly reported that the Chinese aero-engine research and development plan can be summed up as “production generation, development of generation, generation of pre-research to explore the generation.” In fact, China’s research system is now the cause of the engine onto the road of healthy development of a reliable guarantee. It is undeniable that this system not only rigorous perfect, and ambitious plans of the grand old even more than British and American air power.
long way to go to catch up with U.S. and Russian
experts believe that the “Taihang” successfully removed the engine of the F-10 fighter jet of the “heart”, making China one of the world one of the few able to independently develop high-thrust turbofan engine military list of countries. But “Taihang” Currently only the problem of the engine without problems, in order to catch up with the world’s highest level remains to be done.
British “Jane’s Defense Weekly,” has pointed out that China’s “Taihang” basic engine operation with Russia 20 years ago, the AL-31F rather, in some respects has not yet reached the level of the latter. From a global perspective, the United States and Russia have launched a thrust-weight ratio of 10, with a big thrust vectoring nozzle turbofan engine, they can give the fighter supersonic cruise capability, which is China’s “Taihang” engine is difficult to fathom. To narrow the gap with the world’s top level, China’s next step will be a breakthrough in engine technology, the pre-research on the core machine and testing, high temperature materials, lightweight alloys, full digital control systems and thrust vector technology above, while continuing to improve. ” Taihang “engine reliability and service life.
