Zhang Zhaozhong: Kuznetsov flying leaps deck sliding variable waste into good
data for: foreign media that China is transforming the Kuznetsov aircraft carrier conducted a trial voyage
data for : China’s air force Su-27 fighters have started the slide deck jump off the ground training.
our reporter Wu Minjie
8 12, the United States’ strategic website “website” Chinese aircraft flying leaps slippery runway exposure “as the subject reported that U.S. commercial satellites to China recently shot being tested Su -30 and carrier-based aircraft flight deck photo slide jump, and infer the future Chinese aircraft carrier-based aircraft will fly way sliding leaps. In this regard, National Defense University professor Zhang Zhaozhong (blog column) of the “Youth Reference” newspaper, said carrier-based aircraft There are three ways to take off, do not rule out the leaps future Chinese aircraft carrier to fly the possibility of sliding.
guess I set up “pilot crash course”
8 12, the United States’ strategic Web “website to get the so-called terrestrial and satellite digital photo business infer said that China is a Su-30 fighter jets to test the use of flying leaps and sliding-type carrier deck design.
article under the “Liberation Army Daily,” the source said, the end of 2008, China announced that Dalian Naval Academy opened its doors to its first aircraft carrier pilots, hopes the four-year course, and transformed them into can take off and land on aircraft carrier fighter pilot. The article said that Russia has warned China: to train students to control aircraft carriers are familiar with the necessary knowledge and skills, may take 10 years or even longer. Therefore, the site believes that China’s time in four years short-term training carrier pilots in the “gambling.” This article is also speculation that the reason for China’s purchase of the “Kuznetsov” was abandoned aircraft refurbishment, may be due to the introduction of the aircraft carrier from Russia the necessary drawings and technical, and intends to ship water trials later this year .
“Kuznetsov” was variable waste into wealth
response to these reports, the reporter August 15 telephone interview with National Defense University professor, Rear Admiral Zhang Zhaozhong. Professor Zhang said, “Kuznetsov” is the Russian Navy active duty, “Admiral Kuznetsov” aircraft carrier of the same type of sister ship, the biggest feature is the use of carrier aircraft flying leaps slide deck, but the “Kuznetsov” was based on the name of the scrap metal sold to China, the reason for the sale of metal when the void is important because before the sale of some equipment has been dismantled or destroyed, China has been very difficult, there is no need to put it back into combat with the carrier. However, waste ship-based aircraft carrier deck Ski Jump is still intact in the ship with instructions and guidance of the command device is a good training platform for carrier-based pilots at sea, so that “turning waste into treasure . ”
on aircraft carrier flight training base, Zhang said, speaking from common sense, since China to build aircraft carriers, then the establishment of carrier-based aircraft pilot training base, completely makes sense to do.
slip on planes flying leaps high requirements
The United States’ strategic website “website will be used on China’s aircraft carrier-based aircraft flying leaps slippery way to say, Professor Zhang said, fixed-wing aircraft take-off aircraft carrier approach is an important issue to be resolved, the world’s fixed-wing carrier-based aircraft carrier take-off in three ways: the ejection of large aircraft commonly used methods, the British light aircraft carrier uses a jump and slide VTOL hybrid approach, the Russian medium-sized aircraft carrier using large fixed-wing aircraft is taking off Ski Jump. Steam catapult catapult take-off divided and electromagnetic catapult two, the most mature technology in which the steam catapult. British steam catapult was first invented based on German technology, the U.S. Navy and later bought the British patent, and eventually developed; The principle is to push the piston driven high-pressure steam ejected the slider on the track, the link to its projection on the aircraft carrier out.
Professor Zhang also said that the United States from the latest “Ford” class aircraft carrier began to give up the steam catapult and use more advanced technology, electromagnetic catapult. The United States is experiencing six or seven years later began to engage the electromagnetic catapult, with the exception of the U.S. aircraft carrier, only the French “de Gaulle” aircraft carrier catapult purchased from the United States. For America, this is definitely not just the output of the core technology. The British used the slide jump and vertical takeoff and landing hybrid method, you must meet the VTOL fighter. These three aircraft carrier take-off mode, the way Russia’s Ski Jump off the highest performance requirements for carrier-based aircraft.
Major General Zhang Zhaozhong, in the 1970s, the Soviet Union experts in the implementation of the concept of the steam catapult take-off after experiencing many difficulties, began to study the large thrust-weight ratio, high level of mobility carrier-based aircraft carrier deck landing technology. Made to the final from the successful implementation of the program to the “Admiral Kuznetsov” aircraft carrier, the Soviet Union spent 10 years time, spend a lot of manpower and resources. So, the Soviet aircraft carriers flying leaps slip technology come easily. The pre-completed 70% of the “Kuznetsov” was, the slide deck and jump, “Kuznetsov” aircraft carrier deck slide jump geometry similar to that of the Soviet aircraft carrier to China designed to experience, explore solutions to carrier-based aircraft horizontal takeoff and landing aircraft approach this problem is a good reference. In addition, compared with advanced American aircraft carriers, but the complex steam catapult take-off mode, the Soviet aircraft carrier sliding technique is simple and practical flying leaps, its R & D cost and risk control costs are relatively low, perhaps China’s aircraft carrier program would take into account factors .
