“Shi Lang number” in the change, “F number” under construction! Exposure second aircraft carrier to China!
According to the U.S. “strategic News” reported on January 8, the Chinese have two aircraft carriers, “Shi Lang” number and “F” number is in the construction, of which one is expected to be launched next year. The aircraft carrier design has been completed, the current focus on the operational aspects of aircraft types and tissues.
China is now the land facilities, carrier-based aircraft and helicopters on training; in a time of need, will send the aircraft to service ships at sea. China will initially operate in this way to the aircraft carrier, aircraft carrier operations with the United States in different aspects of the practice;
U.S. carrier-based aircraft carrier is permanently configured (unless maintenance of the aircraft carrier because of the need for a long time to stop use). There are different is that China’s helicopter was equipped with the small surface ships; this organization with the U.S. carrier-based aircraft, the Chinese carrier-based aircraft become more independent.
reported that China will be equipped with carrier-based aircraft carrier model is not yet determined. China’s main carrier-based aircraft is the F-11 (modified in accordance with Russian Su-27 prototype models of China). China has been one from the Ukraine, Russian naval version of the Su-27 fighter (Su-33), and learn a lot of technical information for the take-off weight of up to 30 tons of improvements for the J-11 carrier-based F – 11BH (earlier known as the F-15). But in “Shi Lang No.” aircraft carrier officially launched before all this is not enough.
China, “Shi Lang No.” (W good cell) aircraft carrier
contrast, is more important is the training carrier pilots. At present, China will use the take-off weight of 9.8 tons of domestic JL-9 “Eagle” trainer, and recently put into use the take-off weight of 9.5 tons of JL-15 trainer aircraft for carrier-based pilot training.
Today, China already has can be used on carrier-based aircraft carrier helicopter. Including the Russian Ka-28 anti-submarine helicopters, radar warning card, -31 helicopters and Mi-8 transport helicopters. China in the field of design and manufacture of ship-borne helicopters still unable to meet, or exceed the level of Russia’s existing models. Therefore, in the next decade, China will continue to use Russian-made helicopter.
“Shi Lang” aircraft carrier can carry up to 50 fighters and 18 helicopters, but China will not initially carry so many aircraft. It is reported that Russia also will deploy the full load on the aircraft carrier. Nevertheless, the Chinese aircraft carrier in the first few years will be mainly used for military training, and occasionally used for official visit foreign ports, to show its military strength.
for the above two tasks, the Chinese carrier is likely to carry eight fighters and 9 to 10 helicopters (which contains six anti-submarine aircraft, 3 early warning aircraft and a search and rescue unit ). Once the other F-11BH ready for training pilots and crew of the carrier’s control still needs a few years time. Therefore, China has dispatched the aircraft carrier air force with the ability to need to wait until 2020; carrier-based aircraft include: F-11BH and F-10AH, and anti-submarine, early warning, search and rescue helicopters.
so far, “Shi Lang” aircraft carrier has berthed at the port of China for over nine years. Ship semi-finished products for Russian aircraft carrier, the Chinese side is stepping up its renovation. Aboard the former Soviet Ukraine, “Kuznetsov” was three years ago was re-named “Shi Lang” number, hull number “83.” Two years ago, China decided to build aircraft carrier fleet, and since then, “Shi Lang” was refurbished was put on the agenda, progress rapidly. In the past two years, “Shi Lang” in the dry dock in the assembly of engines and heavy equipment. Radar mast on the deck has been completed and is currently self-load the Chinese-made radar systems.
“Kuznetsov” was the Russian Kuznetsov-class aircraft carrier in which one, in the 1980s began building. Kuznetsov class aircraft carrier was originally designed for 9-ton nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, is very similar to the U.S. aircraft carrier, carrier aircraft are equipped with a steam catapult take-off device. However, due to modern U.S. aircraft carrier structure is very complex and expensive cost, so Russia was forced to adjust the aircraft carrier construction program, the carrier set at 65,000 tons full load displacement, and abandoned the take-off aircraft carrier catapult steam plant and replace it with slip runway flying leaps.
the same time, the design of nuclear power has also been canceled. Nevertheless, the Kuznetsov class aircraft carrier design is still daunting; the whole ship is the length of up to 323 meters (1000 feet), usually can be equipped with 12 Su-27s (also known as Su-33s), 14 Ka -27PL anti-submarine helicopters, two electronic jamming helicopters and two search and rescue helicopters. Aircraft can carry 36 Su-33s and 16 helicopters.
the aircraft can carry 2,500 tons of aviation fuel to support 500 to 1,000 fighter aircraft and helicopter sorties task; crew size of 2,500 people (if the full load carrying fighter aircraft, 3,000 crew members required). Kuznetsov class aircraft carrier built only two, one in the Russian service, and the other one is the “Kuznetsov” was.
article said, I believe China has manufacturing company with Russian ships made contact, and received a Kuznetsov-class aircraft carrier design data and equipment information. Years ago the Chinese leadership has said that China will have aircraft carriers in 2010 (I believe it must be refurbished Kuznetsov), and this will become a reality in 2012. Perhaps time is not so early, because China is still dedicated to accelerating the construction of other military technology; but China is confident for the first time in the aircraft carrier construction success.
three years ago, the Chinese government announced that the first aircraft carrier pilots will begin in the Dalian Naval Academy training. Naval officers here to complete four years of training, which will allow them as a fighter pilot in the aircraft. China has already built on land with the aircraft flying leaps, like the slippery track, carrier-based aircraft designed for training pilots. Russia has warned China that want to have the effective operation of the aircraft carrier technology and knowledge at least 10 years; while China move forward.
