Sichuan Online – Digest Weekly: When the pressure in the face of the Taiwan Strait, the Chinese Air Force had air superiority over the Strait to seek and to suppress other air defense forces, to seek smooth implementation of cross-sea combat. Taiwan’s air defense system, mainly by the Patriot air defense missile system components and Nike, though has not advanced, but because of the intensive deployment and supported by a sufficient number of third-generation fighters, enough to bring big offensive threat. Coupled with Taiwan after the Navy obtained Kidd ship off the coast of further air in early warning, through the Taiwan Navy’s Great Army Strong systems and network systems can be summarized these air situation information, and to judge the overall defense posture, to guide aircraft to do maximum efficiency of interception operations.
long as Taiwan and the U.S. Air Force land exchange, the U.S. anti-radiation system is quite familiar with the system of copying the U.S. anti-radar tactics are obviously stupid. U.S. anti-radiation cover attacks based on the idea of ??long-term fleet air defense system into the deep, as long as the completion of the campaign against key nodes, even the loss of a number of aircraft is acceptable. China’s Air Force, although the number of three generations of machines has made great progress, but from the quality, the ability to perform the dual space of ground combat and combat missions or three generations of machine platform can not meet demand.
in this grim reality, China’s Air Force must use some of the more long-range anti-radiation missile, anti-radar platform in order to protect the security of a small elite. According to foreign periodicals reported that the Chinese Air Force has received a series of Russian Kh-31 anti-radiation missiles, and complete localization. Kh-31 missile equipped with four rocket/ramjet cruise speed of Mach 3.
some foreign defense experts believe that, Kh-31′s performance was stronger than the U.S. fleet of HARM anti-radiation missiles, mainly due to its large diameter bomb, you can use a larger antenna size four-arm spiral antenna will help to enhance the ability to find and lock on radar, but also reduces the anti-shutdown of the technical difficulty and for airborne targeting equipment. And Kh-31 anti-radar type of flying faster, making the anti-air defense missile system efficiency down hard, which strengthened its penetration ability.
Canada, “Chinese Defense Review,” said China has made Flying Leopard VI boom mounted on platforms such as the localization of anti-radar missile Kh-31, and has combat effectiveness. Regardless of the news is accurate, up only from system analysis, the ability to fly and the leopard mounted and F/A-18 combat radius of the series are similar, if Leopard can mount a number of flying like AN/ASQ-213 the pod, and with some appropriate electronic jamming pod, will obviously be more powerful air defense suppression capability. Coupled with longer range (not less than 40 km) of the Kh-31 anti-radiation missiles, flying leopard in a major anti-air defense missile systems to attack outside.
mainland because a large number of fielded improved Kh-31 self-produced, making the Taiwan-based air defense system tends to weakness. Once the core of the ground radar was destroyed, would seriously dampen the morale of Taiwan, causing the collapse of air defense system. Mainland air force as long as the two directions of Taiwan launched the air attack campaign, carrying anti-radiation missiles and other aircraft flying Leopard will force the Taiwan Air Force had to expand the scope of its air defense circles, but it will significantly reduce the overall strength of Taiwan’s air defense system, And before Taiwan’s fighter out too soon or from the cover of anti-aircraft missiles, the mainland side will face a variety of fighters to intercept. Therefore, for Taiwan is called “electronic Leopard” Flying Leopard electronic warfare variant is almost no solution. (According to “Air Files” Moon Shadow Wufeng Li/text)
