Foreign media said the United States or with X-47B unmanned aircraft carrier-based F-20 fighter deal
new U.S. X-47B unmanned aircraft type, 4 February for the first test flight. X-47B unmanned U.S. F-20 opponent chances are you
Japan “diplomat” weapons expert David Akers magazine recently wrote, a retired U.S. Air Force generals said that no fighters spread throughout the Pacific region, which U.S. defense policy-makers is a big problem.
recent months, Washington and Beijing governments have revealed new or planned UAV programs. The U.S. Navy is considering the future of armed UAVs replace some or all of the F-35 manned aircraft. At the same time, China also committed to the development of advanced unmanned aerial vehicles.
With the rapid development of Sino-US UAV, the next Pacific air war is likely to be unmanned when the main character.

the United States against China to use X-47B J -20
retired Air Force Lieutenant large Wei Deputula to the “diplomat” magazine revealed that, due to the rapid development of unmanned aerial vehicles, five point the building must take into account the “design and construction of an effective air defense structure to respond rapidly to attack the enemy’s unmanned aircraft, while also ensure that no accidental injury allies aircraft and missiles. ”
He said: “Over the past 20 years, we control the airspace of the land of war, however, this situation will not last forever. Imagine, in the event of a sudden, several enemy one hundred UAV operations, we can distinguish between friend and foe how? how to effectively combat with the enemy at the same time, allows us to UAVs and other aircraft to continue its mission? “
He warned said: “If these problems are not addressed and resolved, then the first encounter in combat this situation, we will face significant challenges.”
just entered the U.S. Navy Air Force stealth fighter F-35, was widely considered to be the United States to achieve air superiority with China one of the main equipment. But now the leadership is considering a U.S. Navy F-35 fighter planes to reduce the possibility of orders, they want to save money to buy more with the X-47B unmanned aircraft equipped with the carrier, perhaps the future will encounter China’s F -20 unmanned new rivals.
America was considering reducing the number of F-35 fighters, mainly because they were high hopes for the F-35 stealth fighters has just entered the Air Force base on the engine failure occurred. Early last month, Eglin Air Force Base in the United States, an F-35 is faulty, leading to all 20 F-35 grounded. Although the U.S. Department of Defense approval for the subsequent flight of 12 F-35 return to flight, but obviously, F-35 Although the Air Force has begun to deliver, but failed to reach full maturity standards.
British “Aviation Week” had to guess, “F-35 could become China’s stealth fighter F -20 direct opponent.” But according to Western media the previous analysis, if the face F -20, F-35 is difficult to gain advantage. The reduction in F-35, the replacement is the same in the aircraft taking off and landing, unmanned X-47B.
X-47B UAV length 11.58 meters, a record for the first type can be completely out of the ground control, to rely on computer programs to perform tasks stealth fighter-bombers, and can take off from aircraft carriers and their own decline. X-47B F-18 with the weight of the same, with two bomb bay, can load two tons of smart bombs. X-47B aircraft from taking off, flying 2700 km and returned to the aircraft carrier, which will greatly enhance the aircraft’s reconnaissance capabilities. And an F-35 compared to the billions of dollars, X-47B unmanned aircraft is much lower cost, testing and production two X-47B, 6 years to spend $ 600 million. The first X-47B aircraft has been completed in February this year the land off the test, planned for 2013 aircraft pilot.
“can not allow China to dominate the Pacific”
face of mainland China’s rapid development of unmanned aerial vehicles and an increasing threat to force the United States finally take continue, the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan has recently become the target of interest groups advocating. September 15, according to AFP news, Republican Representative, Florida, USA Irina En Rose Lay Pavilion on the 14th called on the U.S. passed a bill to strengthen the “US-Taiwan relations.”
reported that U.S. congressmen asked the administration to sell Taiwan 66 by the new F-16 fighter program. Luosi Lai Yan Ting said in a statement: “It must not be allowed to dominate mainland China’s U.S. policy in the Pacific.” Draft Republican lawmakers also support the United States sell Taiwan F-16 fighter jets and other weapons, including surface to air missile , air defense systems, submarines and advanced UAV.
about U.S. deployment of unmanned aircraft, and recently a new trend, a UAV is about to deploy to the United States inter-Korean border; another is that the U.S. has UAVs deployed to a carrier to form a more extensive combat units. The United States already densely deployed unmanned aircraft of the circumstances, why should such a strong deployment of unmanned aircraft it? U.S. unmanned aircraft in the end will bring to China what kind of threat?
U.S. unmanned aircraft to high altitude, long-distance flight, the formation of a near-absolute threat. In the current world, few countries, this high-altitude high-speed UAV can detect, let alone shot down. The United States is a country with a sense of crisis, it has always been a rainy day for the other major powers to develop their own weapons systems. The United States has deployed in the Central China region a large number of unmanned combat aircraft, such as the U.S. military bases in South Korea, the U.S. military bases in Japan, Guam, and the battlefields of Afghanistan. Now turn to the deployment of unmanned aircraft carrier, the formation of mobile combat platform.
According to the “Voice of Russia” on September 14 issued a document that will appear in Northeast Asia, in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Pentagon’s frequent use of unmanned reconnaissance aircraft. Going on in the United States and South Korea near the demilitarized zone on the Korean Peninsula using the “Global Hawk” unmanned reconnaissance aircraft of the negotiations.
According to the U.S. military “Stars and Stripes” newspaper revealed that in the region using the “Global Hawk” makes the whole territory of the first-ever monitoring of North Korea as possible. Negotiation process are confidential, although the Air Force headquarters in Hawaii said, “Global Hawk” in the days of the Korean peninsula over the far off.
Korea expressed its willingness to buy “Global Hawk”, equipped with remote infrared cameras, radar and eavesdropping devices, “Global Hawk” North Korea can monitor what is happening throughout, in particular, to monitor nuclear facilities and military facilities. Military analyst 士伊格尔科 Luoqin Ke said, “Global Hawk” can see from 18,000 meters altitude range of 550 kilometers on the ground, which means that it can cover some provinces of China, which of course will not let Pyongyang and Beijing happy. “The U.S. strategy is the emergence of unmanned reconnaissance aircraft, including the Chinese military to collect information on potential” – China said makes sense.
exposure based on past U.S. military bases stationed in Korea, Afghanistan, unmanned aircraft and unmanned aircraft, you can clearly know that the U.S. is mainly for this unmanned aircraft such as China military power. China’s high-altitude unmanned aerial vehicles in and out freely, to form China’s threat can be imagined. In short, the future of unmanned aircraft, will become the first outpost of the war, the implementation of the first wave of reconnaissance and attack missions, reconnaissance and enemy command center, attack the enemy’s head, making it possible to complete the first time in a The initial phase of the war.
X-47B unmanned aircraft is the first ever ground-based personnel can be completely out of control, relying on computer programs to perform tasks stealth fighter-bombers, took off from aircraft carriers and fall on their own, will greatly enhance the carrier reconnaissance capabilities and operational capabilities.
China’s new UAV for the U.S. panic
after all the trials, to explore after it was found that UAVs are the future trends. U.S. experts have been proposed to reduce the number of F-35 fighter, the funds transferred to the production of advanced unmanned aerial vehicles, a major reason is the endless stream of new China in recent years, unmanned aerial vehicles to the United States a little panic, they are afraid of their own set up on the advantages of UAVs by the Chinese to catch up and surpass.
in the late 1960s, the United States during the Vietnam War have been frequently used unmanned reconnaissance aircraft into the Chinese airspace surveillance camera, has repeatedly been shot down, but has been a lot of intelligence and no human losses, the United States people are still cost-effective.
China by continuing with the U.S. unmanned reconnaissance contest, also recognized the role of the aircraft and started research and development. From the 1960s until the 1990s, the development of domestic aviation growth empty-1 unmanned drone series, “Changhong” high-speed high-altitude unmanned reconnaissance aircraft, T-6 general-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle, Z-5 series of unmanned reconnaissance aircraft , ASN series of unmanned aerial vehicles, etc., to develop dozens of drones and reconnaissance UAV, widely used in day and night aerial reconnaissance, battlefield surveillance, target positioning, artillery fire correction, battle damage assessment, border patrol and other military and aviation photography, geophysical exploration, disaster monitoring, marine anti-smuggling and other civilian areas. However, compared with manned aircraft, in the past 40 years, the Chinese UAV position in the military can only act as a supporting role is not high, in recent years the emphasis of the mechanized warfare to information ahead, its position finally jumped quickly. According to China’s “Science Times” reported, in one fell swoop in 2010 China launched five models of UAVs, including the ability to attack with stealth fighting machine, design and performance are very advanced, led to international aviation exclaimed incessantly .
According to foreign media reports, the Chinese developed the first UAV to the recent appearance of suicide. This self-developed China’s suicide UAV – “long Eagle” unmanned aerial vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles from Northwestern Polytechnical University in the team. Some experts said that with the National Model “long Eagle” the successful development of long-endurance unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs achieved by China in recent mid-term, short flight, to the remote, long-endurance historic leap.
in this year’s Beijing International Aviation Exhibition, the Chinese exhibited a non-cockpit F-6 UAV, the UAV low cost, because China has thousands of aircraft of this vintage aircraft, just a little transformation, China can have thousands of high-speed unmanned aircraft to perform dangerous items. China in the transformation of such a UAV, the U.S. will feel that China is threatening force. Because the number of China can create so many fighters, even if the U.S. each missile can hit the Chinese fighter, then China can still consume much of the U.S. missiles.
In addition, China recently has also exposed the WJ-600 Chinese version of the “Global Hawk” unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs an exhibition that attracted a lot of attention on the eyes. This UAV can perform various tasks, such as reconnaissance, mapping, attack, monitor and so on.
frequent exposure of Chinese UAV, the U.S. military have seen the huge Chinese manufacturing capacity. In contrast, the current U.S. financial crisis. U.S. Congress Armed Services Committee 席麦克科恩 warning: China wants an equal footing with the United States military. Mike Cohen said: “China firmly believes that they will get the financial crisis through the development of our military the opportunity.” McKeon said Beijing for the first time that they can be on an equal footing with the United States military, they build stealth fighters and submarines. However, it should be noted that Mike Cohen in the U.S. Congress for consideration in the context of defense budget’s remarks, the China threat theory. He therefore opposed the re-cut the U.S. defense program.(edit: SN015) to share:
