U.S. media exposure: Chinese Air Force has been fitted out in the 12 H-ten bombers
U.S. aviation magazine published in the the Colonia Phil commentator’s article said: “whether it is necessary to stop the construction of large-scale strategic aircraft” This may be for South Asia peace on the peninsula of India the situation is very unfavorable. Phil Colonia: China in the early development of a variety of large-scale intercontinental transport, bombing passenger planes.
these aircraft at the time the poor of the Chinese technology was abortion. The example is only one exception Y10 large transport aircraft. He is the early design the first turbojet is a twin engine transport aircraft. Its design performance between early Boeing 707-727. In the early stages of reform, China has completed his part of the basic design. Its prototype is built in the late 1970s.
However, in the anti-hair as well as financial reasons, termination of the plan followed by 85 years. Instead applied the McDonnell Douglas co-production, production for the McDonnell Douglas 82 aircraft tail components. In 1987, China had expressed the hope that the joint development of large passenger aircraft at McDonnell Douglas. But was rejected. China eliminated Y10 transport aircraft, parked in a Beijing museum.
Therefore, we can see, the Chinese early on with a certain large transport aircraft design capabilities. Y8, Y9 from the former Soviet-designed An-12. There is not much updated design. Y9 is in the newly developed medium-sized aircraft. But he still is not conducive to the expansion of the turbine wheel plasma engine. This is the main features of the former Soviet aircraft.
Chinese Air Force has received 12 Tu22E3 Backfire intercontinental bombers from Russia, arrived in China after being named as H-ten. Procurement of such bombers tried this research to develop their own large range intercontinental bombers.
However, because Russia does not agree with the TU160 sold to China, therefore, tried to use the level of TU22 is impossible for China to achieve in the real sense of the true intercontinental strategic bomber. Because of the TU22 payload capacity than the Russian TU160 or the U.S. Air Force B1B bomber to be small, even less than the B52 bomber. TU22-range air defense penetration ability is very good, he could easily break through the air defense system in most European countries.
China is now in testing a similar U.S. “Pegasus M” air-launched rocket weapon, he is similar AGM109G the air-launched cruise missiles. Can be a surprise to combat outside the theater. China will in the future, such a missile applied to Tu22 bombers.
Therefore, at 2,200 nautical miles South China Sea dispute between China and South Asian countries, China will be in the air, strategic attack on an absolute deterrent advantage. For the current waters east of Japan disputes, not a harbinger of the long-range bombers. And China continue to a large number of advanced warships stationed in the East China Sea. Shows that the Chinese against the Japanese navy at sea.
Keluo Phil: China such a move seems to have his own reasons, but this balance the situation in South Asia peace, and the U.S. Navy and Air Force in South Asia forces present at the location is very unfavorable. Therefore trigger a new round of southern Asian arms race.
China has always been the land of the Kingdom, in 2006, concerned about the waters of the ocean. And the former Soviet Union to look at the form: “strategic bomber + aircraft carrier fleet” is used to temporarily compensate for the lack of overseas bases distress.
China’s large aircraft program. There are at least three projects in operation, including the name of the early named Y10 multi-purpose aircraft. But which one. And China continue to erode the French aviation industry, to obtain a very good tool for development, therefore, China will be borrowing the means to develop independent of the large aircraft. Civil Aviation of China can accommodate large aircraft, this is a can not currently clear answer. Some Chinese scholars have pointed out: China large passenger aircraft in a large number of procurement beauty, there is no need to develop their own large passenger aircraft. More having to go to develop for long-range intercontinental transport aircraft China.
public information, the Tu-22M (NATO reporting name Backfire-C type) is an ultra- the speed of sound, variable wing of the long-range strategic bomber, a payload of about 2.4 tons, a range of up to 6800 km, four crew members and deputy pilots, navigators and weapons, including the manipulation of hand manipulation. Weapons configuration, design-22M wing ammunition hanging decorate machine abdominal is also equipped with rotary launchers can be mounted up to 10 cruise missiles can carry nuclear or conventional warheads. In addition, the tail of the Tu-22M3 bombers, equipped with an air of self-defense in GSh-23L remote control authorities of the 23 mm caliber gun.
with supersonic flight capability and variable wing design, Figure-22M bombers is still one of the main models of the Russian bombers.
strategic and tactical tasks line
as early as the 1950s, the former Soviet Union developed the first generation of supersonic bomber – 22 “goggles”. However, due to the presence of defects in design and technology, this bomber has suffered criticism of the Soviet pilots. Military satisfaction, the Tupolev design bureau in 1965, a Tu-22M bomber design. Although the Soviet Union was declared the bomber is an improved version of the Tu-22, but the West that it is in fact an entirely new bomber, the Soviet Union insisted classified in Figure -22 series is nothing more than to circumvent the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks in the limit provisions.
