Han said China’s Red Flag and anti-aircraft guided-16A has been officially to the international market
online circulation of Chinese red-16A anti-aircraft missile photos.
According to “Chinese Defense Review” magazine recently reported that China ALMT company sources, the army anti-aircraft missiles have been red-16A officially to the international market, the export name for the LY-80. The article said the Chinese army has been equipped with such a small volume of medium-range surface to air missile vertical launch, early-type to replace the red flag -61.
export-LY-80 -61 from the sea-based Red Flag evolved, the current Chinese Navy Type 054A frigate has been equipped with a vertical launcher “Red Flag 16″ air defense system, with the Shanghai NASA developed semi-active guided missiles. Export-LY-80 off-road vehicle use Tyan TA5350 wheeled chassis, the space from the recently set up a Long March International Trade Co., Ltd. is responsible for the world market.
article said, “red-16A” is equipped with six missiles, with the “red flag -9″ system together to create hollow and high-altitude area air defense system. From the appearance point of view, both use the same active phased array radar. In order to improve the ability to intercept low-flying targets, but also install a special blind target acquisition radar. In contrast, the “Red Flag 16″ range of 25 kilometers, “red-16A” range of 30 km.
“red-16A” has a very fast response capability, because it uses the vertical launch system. “Red Flag-16A” in the Chinese army’s role in the field air defense system is equivalent to Russia’s “beech-M2E”, which is a range of 42 kilometers and equipment the Army Army air defense brigade. China’s current use of the Russian armed forces, “Doyle-M1″ air defense missile system has a range of 13 kilometers, the main equipment in the elite troops air defense brigade. Overall, the Chinese military the ability of active air defense systems are relatively backward, which is bulk purchase “Red Flag-16A” one of the main.
“red-16A” export-oriented products LY-80 launchers are not using track-type launch vehicles, which will largely limit its field capacity, although how much this program seems a bit strange, but China has independently developed the majority of the mainstream anti-aircraft missile systems do not use the trailer, including the deployment of a large number of “red flag -7.” From the outline view, LY-80 launcher and S-300 and “red flag -9″ long-range air defense missile system is very similar, which is likely to mean that Chinese designers hope that the “Red Flag 9″ and “Red Flag -16 “based on the development of a unified modular structure.
“Red 16″ air defense missile system first public appearance in the 1999 Tiananmen Square on National Day parade, which uses missiles and Russia “no wind” and “beech-M2E” missile defense system is very similar to .
Currently, China imports from Russia’s most advanced “Doyle-M1″ air defense missile systems, modernization of the main deployed in Fujian, 31 air defense brigade. Another argument is the first Army, 38th Army was also equipped with “Doyle-M1″. In fact, China imported only two battalions of “Doyle-M1″. Therefore, all appearances, the first equipment improved, “Red Flag-16A” air defense missile system might deploy troops to the group for Taiwan’s air defense brigade.(edit: SN015) to share:
