International Herald Tribune correspondent from Beijing in the winter in the U.S. media reports GM’s Hummer brand will be sold to China after the Sichuan Tengzhong The Pentagon received a call from a number of enthusiastic people, very concerned about whether to ask the military version of the Hummer also be sold? Ask for the outside world, the U.S. Army spokesman Martin Downey June 4, quickly clarified: General Motors plans to sell Hummer brand will not involve military Hummer, “Hemu Wei.”
Hummer in China, ordinary people have the impression, however, is a false picture of luxury, why the security concerns caused by the Americans?
military version had parted ways with the public version
“This is because the American public for military and civilian Hummer Hummer in the production process, structure, process, etc. misunderstanding. “PLA Institute of Zhang Yanguo engineer vehicles to the” International Herald Tribune, “said. Since October 1999, the U.S. auto consolidated companies (AM General) transfer to the General Motors Hummer’s trademark use of civil rights and production rights, the “Hummer two brothers” on completely separate ways: by the military Hummer is still in Indiana U.S. automakers General company; civilian Hummer parts production is widely distributed in emerging countries with cheap labor, the last factory in the eastern United States a unified package.
in appearance, military and civilian Hummer Hummer “face” similar, a large body, is quite the same fuel. However, both in structure and performance is actually a big difference. Zhangyan Guo said that military Hummer usually resistant to extreme pressure, high temperature composite materials, and “living community” of the material and Hummer Jaguar, Land Rover off-road vehicles are not very different other civilian.
“is just a Hummer military vehicle weapons platform, the onboard command and the operating system is the most critical part.” Zhangyan Guo pointed out that the United States on the battlefield in Iraq and Afghanistan, the military Humvee in addition to installing mine protection board, equipped with all kinds of offensive weapons, but also coated with anti-infrared paint; powerful electronic systems is a major feature of the Hummer military vehicle, due to excessive noise, the crew can not determine the direction of the bullet or bullets struck the car have installed the “acoustic sensors”, to alert and help the crew determine the orientation of the enemy’s fire. In addition, with the ever-increasing demands of information warfare, U.S. forces since the spring of 2008, introduced in the Hummer military vehicle equipped with electronic attack systems.
contrast, within the civilian Hummer is not such a large system, and replaced by luxury air-conditioning, sound system and leather interior.
some people worry about “selling horse” unsafe
Hummer, no doubt the United States embodies a special feeling. Now, into bankruptcy protection the company had to consider the general situation relieved the burden of Hummer, Hummer and high fuel consumption of more energy saving is contrary to this idea. However, the United States a variety of forces are best to prevent the common “selling horses.”
American Enterprise Institute think tank, an article on June 3, concocted the so-called “Chinese conspiracy theory”: If even the deep pockets of the former General Motors Hummer can not operate successfully, we believe what a Chinese heavy machinery company to success?
“This is entirely China’s attempt to transform cf civilian Hummer military vehicles out of a shameless conspiracy.” From the San Diego area Congressman Hunter that declared, “go to China or any confidential process of Chinese enterprises technology will enhance China’s military power in a way. “
In this regard, Zhang Yanguo engineer pointed out,” From a technical perspective, the civilian Hummer to the car’s China R & D reference is not the U.S. media claims Tengzhong background with the Chinese military is nonsense. “China’s military off-road Jeep self” warriors “in 15 key technologies are tested in more than 12 U.S. military Hummer, including fuel consumption and load two important indicators.
