South China Sea a sea, naval engaged in a special test, using the newly developed torpedo to attack a real submarine.
at the moment, the submarine atmosphere was especially tense, air solidified. Stick war the officers and men is pretty scary: submarine torpedo pilot scheme went straight to the bottom comes, if the torpedo missed the target depth to hit submarines, what will happen, really difficult to predict. It’s like a sharpshooter people to lift the ring target practice firing practice, even if the shoot with great precision deserved reputation, will make people smoke in a cold sweat.
torpedo underwater attack the sound Youyuanerjin, success! Torpedo from the submarine a few meters below the security through the attack and set the depth is exactly the same. new underwater weapons against precision to achieve a new leap in the process, led the military representatives of the supervision of nearly 10 years of the new torpedo “Ray,” Xu Xingqin contributed.
torpedo water missiles “in the world, and its underwater attack mainly rely on the guidance of the sound signal. Due to the underwater acoustic environment is complex and other factors, the difficulty of upgrading of the torpedo firing accuracy is higher than a variety of missiles in the air. In order to temper the new torpedoes, precision strike capability, the Navy military representing Xu Xingqin advocated break the routine, to play a real submarine torpedo submarine of our own production target.
remark one shocked by the parties. In the torpedo test, has always been a sound target simulation of submarine features of this safe and effective method. There is no doubt that the activities of submarines to replace the fixed acoustic target as a torpedo attack target, security risk, high technical difficulty.
new torpedo is in the continuous research, testing and improvement, can not be separated from the approximate shooting test in real conditions and to test equipment performance. Xu Xingqin stick to their point of view: torpedo underwater attack to play with, and hit more accurately, this what the mine. Only after full and rigorous testing, in order to protect the troops training in the future to maximize the close combat.
Xu Xingqin seriously awkward to convince a new type of torpedo chief architect, no one thought the biggest problem is still troops here. Choose which submarine target, all excuses. Submarine officers and men heard that bring torpedo play the submarine, head shaken like a rattle, strongly disagreed. The test torpedo is clearly not explode, but in case the torpedo missed hit the submarine, the consequences could be disastrous.
no way, Xu Xingqin fleet heads of offices, led the chief architect went to the “silver bullet”.
“pilot program, the safety factor of 99%, we have adequate security measures, torpedo attack under the front of the submarine hull there is a certain distance.”
accidents and risks? “
” There is a certain risk, but this risk is risking the worst result of deviation from the target route mistakenly hit the submarine, but the torpedo test mine, even if hit by submarine to ensure that officers and men life safety. “
” I agree with you playing, but you want to sign a military order. “
Xu Xingqin really mine to play successful submarine of the message, so that the organs of leadership excited. General a person to take the target submarine sea trials, to experience the real situation of the submarine torpedo attack. Successful trials, submarines rely on the pier, the General ashore after Xu Xingqin first sentence is: “torpedo hit very accurate in the submarine has to feel its power.”
According to statistics, the transport supply ship sank in the two world wars, 76 percent of a torpedo; up to 41% of the battleship is not guns, aerial bombs and other weapons to hit, but with the specter of “underwater,” said torpedo sent to the seabed. However, the limitations of a variety of conditions, the People’s Navy was faced with the “short board” situation of the torpedo technology development.
new torpedoes research project time is tight, difficult, demanding, the Xu Xingqin stepped in to serve as project leader of the military, he was Lebuqilai pressure ah, after all, this is the most advanced in the development of our country The torpedo, which is to catch up with world advanced level.
staring to play a few decades dealings torpedo Xu Xingqin have their own ideas: “as good as others dare Sword, it is forced to the survival of the fittest is a miracle, but not to win the war as military representatives, we must keep a close eye to the inevitable law of victory. ‘winning excellent’. “
the chief architect of the torpedo is a highly respected academician, academic attainments in this field no one can , and Xu Xingqin is engaged in the military representative of the many years of engineering practice. The development phase of the program review constantly reinvent the wheel, and finally the chief architect of flies into a rage, feel that Xu Xingqin in the set up difficult “growing resentment.
Xuxing Qin heart to heart with the old Academy of Sciences: “You do not trust me, you may not know me and I learn torpedoes, military test torpedoes have a special feeling. Military representative on behalf of the troops , not on behalf of the units and individuals, I want to ensure that this type of torpedo from the initial stage, better and stronger. “
that winter, into the pilot phase of the new torpedo” a problem “. Which a torpedo into the water, the engine will soon stop working. Recovered a check, but the investigation is unclear.
things out by accident, Xu Xingqin than clear to everyone: the reliability of the weapons and equipment of great significance, we do not check out the problem is definitely a new problem, big problem, the mark must take to live.
Early one morning, Xu Xingqin suddenly remembered what he snatched his clothes draped over his body rushed to the studio to the trial. The door did not open, we have not come to work, Xu Xingqin recite at the door. Looked up and saw the 1-meter-high windows, Xu Xingqin imagined from the window to climb into it, he was looking for “power burst valve.
electrical explosion valve is an important component of the power system, play a role in the ignited engine. Xu Xingqin rummaging through all spent more than 30 electrical explosion valve “to find out, and carefully compared, Xu Xingqin an electrical explosion valve there is a subtle difference. So he immediately instructed to find the corresponding test torpedo, according to the number of the valve on the electrical explosion, yes! Fish Lei a problem!
excited Xuxing Qin did not jump to conclusions, but took to do a test, really “power burst valve process quality problems. The problem is found, has always been serious and the chief architect of tightly holding Xuxing Qin’s hand moved to say: “Thank you!”
the birth of this type of torpedo, so that China’s high-performance main battle fish Lei Yiyue among advanced in the world. “torpedo the stereotypes of the day, Xu Xingqin and chief architect of tightly hugged. A leader of the project for many years state leaders heard about the trial is successful the message, write down the eight characters: the 10-year swords, and finally the National Cheng Kung University.
