Experts say the development is not only concerned about the data carrier index (Figure)
Data Figure: Battle of the Falklands had participated in sports and spirits of the British aircraft carrier.
foreign military enthusiasts like to talk about a lot of “aircraft carrier” in this topic, then, what kind of aircraft carrier it is considered good? May be more of a concern some technical data of the indicators, such as: large carrier is better? Nuclear-powered aircraft carrier is better? There are several aircraft carrier catapult? There are several lifts? How many aircraft can carry? What kind of carrier can carry machine? Carrier-based early warning can upload? And so on. Therefore, a long time, almost all of these technical indicators to measure quality standard aircraft carrier.
In fact, the carrier is a complex military equipment, just with some digital indicators do not measure it good or bad. In the use of the process, some non-digital factors impact on the aircraft carrier may be larger. Today I would like to digitize from the perspective of these non explore with you what kind of aircraft is a good carrier.
useful carrier is a good carrier
I think a good carrier of the first standard is: easy to use carrier is a good carrier.
what kind of aircraft carrier is considered easy to use it? We can look at the end of World War II a number of local wars, the use of aircraft carriers.
in these wars were, to use aircraft carriers in size, performance may be typical on the 1982 Falklands war. In the Falklands War, the British carrier’s situation reflects a useful carrier state. Two aircraft carriers were deployed in the UK, one is relatively new, “Invincible”, the other is the old “sports gods” No.. The two traveled from the British aircraft carrier sailed into the South Atlantic, and in the bad days, Hou and sea conditions continued to fight for so long without “ball dropped” from this point to measure, can be said that the carrier is easy to use.
turn, we see India-Pakistan war in the performance of the Indian aircraft carrier. India can be said that Third World countries are in possession of the aircraft carrier earlier in the country, and experience in the use of relatively abundant. The first India-Pakistan war, India already has a carrier, but not the war, why? The reason is the mechanical power system failure, the aircraft carrier in the home “lying nest” of. Then the second India-Pakistan war, India can be said that victory, the war in the Indian aircraft carrier entered the war, and played no small role. By the time the task, it cut the so-called East Pakistan (today Bangladesh) to West Pakistan (today’s Pakistan), sea lanes, in fact, these two regions to isolate the. However, the specific use of the process, we can see its original intended use and the Indian Army is not the same. The initial plan in accordance with the Indian Army, its carrier should sail to waters near West Pakistan, directly on the Pakistani side of the progressive implementation of an important naval base naval blockade. But the war broke out, the Indian carrier had a problem again, said there was an engine malfunction, that is dynamic, there is a problem, then India will not be able to complete this long-range aircraft navigation task, only in East Pakistan sea ??implement a naval blockade.
aircraft carrier from the India-Pakistan war, India’s performance, we can see that in with the aircraft carrier, but the carrier is not useful in the case, the aircraft carrier became a burden, a burden, even is a pile of scrap metal.
Why does this happen?
We know that aircraft carrier is a super-complex system, a complex system in which any of its sub-problems of probability are unavoidable. For example, an advanced fighter airborne radar system, there is a term called “mean time between failures”, that is, how long radar can be no failure. This “mean time between failures” is probably the usual indicators of more than 100 hours. If an aircraft parked on the 100 carrier aircraft, then it means that 100-based aircraft every hour there will be a failure of the aircraft’s onboard radar.
carrier system complexity far more than a fighter, but far more than a fighter’s radar system. Theoretically, the aircraft carrier in the navigation process every minute there is a possibility of failure, with failure to navigation are to combat. These faults exist in some systems may not affect the use, but once in the words of some core systems, aircraft can not be war occurs, the phenomenon can not be used.
talking about this, we can see the easy to use and difficult to use the aircraft carrier the difference between a. In reality, the aircraft more difficult to use some old, second-hand aircraft, such as India’s aircraft carrier is the case. But we can not rule out even the old aircraft carrier is also easy to use case, like the British “sports gods” No. It’s performance in the Falklands war, is remarkable, is still regarded as a useful carrier.
Similarly, the carrier is not good with the situation in which some of the new carrier will also appear. We look at the new office in France “de Gaulle” nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, has just completed sea trials when the propeller blade fracture appeared in the issue. Forced the French to the new blades removed and replaced the old aircraft carrier propeller. Replaced the old propeller, the aircraft’s speed can be maintained at a lower level. In fact there have been bad with the phenomenon of new carriers, and this phenomenon is reflected in the technical mastery of the aircraft and the level of construction standards. Only a real master of the carrier’s core technology, truly able to maintain a high level of construction standards, to be able to protect the aircraft carrier into a truly useful carrier.
cheap carrier is a good carrier
going to say the second criterion is: cheap aircraft carrier is good.
you may think the carrier is not cheap, and even that “good is not cheap goods, cheap goods not good.” However, the aircraft carrier (ship) in the construction of the development and use of them, there is a traditional saying is: “is far more than the funds sunk by missile submarine sunk by submarine.”
ship itself is a money thing, an aircraft carrier really become a good premise must be cheap. This inexpensive contains three meanings, is made from the first, second is to use starting the third is the loss starting. The first two meanings we are very easy to understand, only cheaper, limited circumstances in military spending, in order to maintain sufficient quantities, this is the so-called “cheap” meaning. As for the “loss” So, may be more people did not expect. We always felt that the aircraft carrier will not be sunk, from World War II to today, not an aircraft carrier which was sunk in combat. But in theory, no one ship is not sunk. Therefore, the process of using the aircraft carrier has been, there are still another problem, that is, loss of carrier.
or in the Falklands war, for example, we think that the British Navy, the British aircraft carrier luck surprisingly well. In fact, in this war, there have been the possibility of the British aircraft carrier was sunk, was sunk when the British aircraft carrier, will bring about what kind of results? The British Navy’s own words, if it is “Invincible” or “sports gods” was sunk, then the British Navy would lose the war. We can understand this sentence as, in this war in a British aircraft carrier “can not afford the loss” of the state.
Again, this state of Japan in World War II embodied more typical. World War II, the Japanese aircraft carrier can be said that not a small scale, the level is not low. But the Japanese aircraft carriers and almost all other large battleship whole force to build out its own production capacity can not make the loss of these large ships quickly added, and therefore a “can not afford the loss” of the state. If we expand the field of the main warships was the number one, you can see more clearly. Japan was the world’s largest, most advanced, most powerful two battleships fighting: “Yamato” and “Musashi” was. The two whole force to build up a large battleship the Japanese navy and almost a symbol of the Empire of Japan from both psychological and material from a “can not afford the loss” situation. Results in the whole process of combat, whether it is “big and” number or “Musashi” was, basically they have the opportunity to sail. “Yamato” was a total war on the sail twice: first in Battle of Leyte Gulf, it should be said to play a few guns, but basically there has been little victories on the withdrawal back; second is the “Japan” was shot Shen of the Battle of Okinawa. This is in fact a typical “can not afford the loss” example.
Therefore, the development of aircraft carriers must take into account economic factors, economic factors that determine whether it can afford to build, whether affordable, but also to determine whether it can afford the loss. Only be made affordable, affordable, afford the loss, this aircraft is a good carrier.
well-made aircraft carrier is a good carrier
talked a good carrier of the third standard, I think it should be well-made aircraft carrier is a good carrier.
we can recall the case of World War II. Throughout World War II, America built more than 100 aircraft, there is a water per week. Of course, these aircraft can be said is varied, both as the main carrier of large warships, merchant vessels or other vessels are also useful for the transformation of escort aircraft carrier. In fact, no matter what type of aircraft, they have a uniform standard that will help when needed in the short time of war or mass production. It is this continuous production capacity, the United States in the Pacific war was always in an unbeaten state.
which involves a problem: how to mass production in a short time the aircraft carrier? Obviously, only good to build aircraft carrier to meet this requirement.
We know that good may not necessarily be made of the most advanced aircraft carrier, which involves a carrier to another dimension of development – like the carrier is not also need to level with modern fighters like: both have the ability to develop advanced aircraft technology, but also to the development, production, equipment afford this advanced large aircraft carriers, but not because of these advanced aircraft carrier, to give up those low-end, easier to build aircraft carriers.
In fact, in today’s aircraft carrier construction of power which they did to keep the hands of such preparations, even as the United States has so many large-scale nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, but it also came a different voice from time to time. When the U.S. Navy had recommended that “the development of aircraft carriers do not put all our eggs into one basket of them,” so when the U.S. put forward the development of some small, cheap, good-made aircraft carrier, which is when the U.S. Navy’s so-called sea ship program. Although these sea-ship plan was not really implemented, but the U.S. Navy also plans to hold them there to try a handful of others. Today we see the Spanish Navy, “the Prince of Asturias” aircraft carrier is actually in accordance with U.S. standards and sea to build the ship; Similarly, the Thai Navy aircraft carrier is imported from Spain by the same standards to the construction of .
another veteran of the maritime powers – Britain also did not give up such a well-made aircraft carrier technology. Were in the Falklands War, Britain temporarily modified a number of container ships, ro-ro ship as a carrier aircraft, although they can not directly carrying aircraft into the air or sea operations, but they can across the ocean carrying aircraft for the two British aircraft carrier “Invincible” and “sports god” was to provide supplementary and resources. Despite the war, British Sea Harrier was shot down an aircraft carrier and one, but “Invincible” and “sports god” was on the carrier-based squadron has maintained a full member of the state of Qi. Perhaps these “aircraft carrier” fight quotes, but it is good because they made “aircraft carrier”, was the British that two real aircraft carrier to maximize the combat effectiveness.
Wan Dezhuan aircraft carrier is a good carrier
Finally, I think Wan Dezhuan aircraft carrier is a good carrier.
fact it contains a lot of “human” factor. A good carrier, is advanced from a technical perspective, the reliability, is easy to use is one thing, but the person operating the aircraft carrier is quite another.
we see that the same aircraft carrier, the use of the carrier-based aircraft may be a big difference. Typically, each aircraft carrier-based aircraft on the day should be sent 2 to 3 times. In the Gulf War, Iraq War, U.S. aircraft carriers and the average is about three times the number deployed. In the Falklands War, the British Navy carrier-based aircraft is the maximum number of frames sent out six times a day. This actually depends largely on the formation of combat human factors, user’s level of play a considerable role.
aircraft carrier is a huge system, and development of aircraft carriers is a huge systematic project, is a long, difficult process. Only a national carrier to become a real nice, cheap, good build, and Wan Dezhuan aircraft carrier, aircraft carrier can be regarded as a big country and carrier power.
