with Japan on July 22 Russian joint anti-terror military exercise near the two sides are stepping up training and preparation. Following the July 18 and Russian armed forces for the first joint training, the 19 sides and a second joint training to improve military interoperability capability. A Chinese military expert, “Global Times” interview, said Sino-Russian joint military exercise mode maturing, and will move toward normalization.
Russian experts said the joint military exercises to eliminate the external suspicion
Russian “Red Star” 18 reported that participate in the Sino-Russian “Peace Mission 2009″ anti-terrorism military exercises and Russian armed forces are well prepared before the exercise, the exercise field will soon have lambasted the two sides will spend the equivalent of the actual battlefield situation 1/3 of the ammunition, to the outside world to fully show their military skills.
“Red Star” also analyzed the Sino-Russian military cooperation between the two countries are beneficial for both countries. Russia can exercise to understand the new image of the Chinese army, and China can learn from the exercises in Russia’s advanced experience. “Red Star” quoted Chinese Defense Minister Liang as saying that the development of military ties with Russia, China’s military diplomacy is one of the priorities, the deepening of Sino-Russian military ties meet the fundamental interests of both peoples, and contribute to the maintenance area world peace and stability.
Institute of the Russian political and military analysis ? 赫拉姆奇欣 Alexander, director of analysis is that the Chinese army in world politics will soon become an important force, especially the Army, the ability of any the traditional enemies of large-scale ground war. 7 large Chinese military the strongest in the Shenyang Military Region, close to the Russian Far East Military District, and monitor the volatile Korean peninsula, adjacent to the military exercise, play together to make China and Russia, will undoubtedly deepen the friendship between two soldiers eliminate the external suspicion play a very good role.
emphasis on ground attack
been reported in the joint training stage, Russia sent a motorized infantry battalion and an airborne assault even, but the Chinese sent all participating units. Joint training, the Russian armed forces in addition to not play live, exactly the same training content and exercises, focusing on exercise, “the joint sealed, three-dimensional breakthrough mobile destroy the enemy, crush depth,” the four subjects, very particular about the tricks. Strategic Research Department at the National Defense University professor Han Xudong, “Global Times” interview, said, “the joint sealed” and “three-dimensional breakthrough” that the exercise involved forces and operations in space highlights the combination of open space; and “destroy the enemy maneuver “From the mode of operation in terms of air combat power is based;” crush depth “refers to the order of battle, a chance to take first strike forward command post of the strategy.
the first three subjects, the ground assault is an important part. It is understood that the military exercise, the Chinese air force battle group battle group together with the Russian Air Force, completed on the ground “terrorists” precision strike missions for the exercise of in-depth follow-up phase to clear the way siege. To accomplish the purpose of implementing this important lesson, participating in the Chinese Air Force battle group training increased the difficulty and intensity. In this regard, Professor Han Xudong commented, in dealing with terrorism, the successful implementation depends primarily on the ground of a sudden surprise attack, the air force in carrying out its mandate, the sooner the better speed of motor response, the more hidden enemy better. This is for Russia’s armed helicopters and large transport aircraft made a high mobility of the practical requirements.
and another unnamed military expert analysis, although a lot of open space in the joint military exercises coordinated operations by adding new elements, but the exercise is organized point of view, then there is still a Russian “special war “style, that is an absolute advantage in conventional military power of the group of militants to” F-hunting “, airborne, helicopter, armored combat is the most important” three elements. ” He said: “In fact, the Russian armed forces exercises in sports in the key is to look at the performance level of the three arms. Airborne is the pride of Russia’s armed forces, and China is a Russian airborne traditional students, they Joining the effect of the exercise will directly affect the performance of Western Russian elite rapid reaction force on the strength of the evaluation. “
As for equipment, China and Russia in accordance with the principle of proximity, from their Far East Military District of Shenyang Military Region, and deployed, But both the deployment of weapons in different parties has caused great interest. Compare the two sides and equipment, China is the best out of elite ground equipment, air equipment, while Russia dominated.
the Russian Far East is the first deployment of the Army Military T-90S main battle tanks of the unit, so far at least five tank battalions be changing, and most are deployed in the Sino-Russian border, but it took the Russian Second, the T-80 tanks to the exercise field. In contrast, China Shenyang Military Region to combat the strongest 99 main battle tanks and turrets with 30 mm cannon launched a new 86 infantry fighting vehicles. However, China has sent the Air Force seems more fragile, can be seen from the reports, Russia’s Far East Military District of Su-27S, Su-24 fighters were put into other third-generation drill, but the Chinese only F-8, Flying Leopard and other fighters to participate. Analysts believe that this may be trying to highlight China-made equipment, the idea caused Moreover, local production of F-8 is the Northeast, supply and logistics is more convenient.
Sino-Russian military cooperation to a new level
Russia for the first time since 2005 “Peace Mission” exercise date, the escalation of military cooperation, mutual the degree of trust between elevated to a new level. Han Xudong said China-Russia military exercise in 2005 only a tactical exercise in 2007, focused exercise is the purpose of the exercise classes, and participating this year, the number is less than 2007, but it is a campaign-level exercise, we can see that both the military increasing levels of cooperation.
In fact, exercises such as high-level military exchanges to improve combat effectiveness of the Russian armed forces of great help. According to Russia’s “off” magazine, the “Peace Mission 2007″ exercise, the Chinese specifically to bring Russian-made Mi-17 helicopters and Z-9 armed helicopters, and humbly ask for advice to the Russian, because Russian troops in Afghanistan and Chechnya received helicopter combat on the battlefield experience. In addition, Chinese and Russian paratroopers in airborne joint training process, the latest six-Russian umbrella system airdrop system have a more profound impression, and thus her four umbrella airdrop system to make improvements. Similarly, in 2007, a joint exercise in Russia to China to bring the 100 mm caliber assault guns wheeled interest, that it is ideal for counter-terrorism operations. I believe in this year’s joint exercise, both sides learn from each other more things.
Han Xudong said China and Russia joint military exercises in the future will move towards the direction of normalization, which is shared by the two countries faced external military pressure on the decision. In the future between the two countries to exchange military scholars and small-scale military training exchanges will increase, so the choice of the two countries need each other’s strategy.
