Commented that progress on China’s manufacturing role in weapons development or underestimated
Data Figure: China’s newly developed F-20 stealth fighter prototype test
Communist Party of China is about to usher in 90 years anniversary, the position of the first U.S. manufacturing country China is quietly being replaced. This shift in the military have been affected?
American scholar denmark recently in “Foreign Affairs” magazine published an article that people do not so pessimistic view of U.S. military power. Reason is that although China’s defense industry has improved, but still far behind the United States, but is unlikely to catch up recently, China’s military know-how “, but is still the number to make up for the lack of quality.”
certainly a lot of people who support denmark, however, find at odds with the views or evidence was not difficult for us.
the one hand, the U.S. manufacturing sector from the 1970s onwards had slipped into orbit. How can we conclude that those who are competitive and close the Detroit car production line, the future can be like World War II, as once they change the production tanks rejuvenate it?
the other hand, progress in China’s manufacturing capabilities of weapons and equipment research and development role, may be underestimated. R & D of -20 F to make the world quickly unexpected. And F -20 prototype up against two instead of one, which accelerate the maturity of the aircraft shape is helpful. Aircraft engine manufacturing is the highest level of military technology, in which China and the world-leading gap has been relatively large, many people estimated to be a major breakthrough in China, takes 15 to 20 years. However, general manager of China Aviation Industry Group Corporation Lin Zuo Ming, publicly declared this year, five years, China’s aero-engine will be the leap. Chinese military-industrial sector to act in accordance with the traditional low-key style point of view, this is not like lip service.
generally believed that the effect depends on military R & D investment and human capital investment, contrary to the U.S., both present, China is not lacking. China is now able to participate in R & D scientists and engineers is very large, and the government financial position, unlike the United States as the day for domestic and international deficits and utterly exhausted.
we all know, China’s high-speed rail technology in just a few years jumped to a world leader, one very important reason is that at capital investment. And studies have shown that, China’s aviation industry from the current pre-development phase into a pillar industry, still less than the required investment in high-speed rail.
strong industrial capacity to make China the opportunity to participate and learn from foreign military construction. December 2010, by Shanghai Zhenhua Port Machinery Group Co., Ltd. built a 1000-ton gantry crane to be loaded on ship left Shanghai, the destination is Scotland, used to assemble the British Navy, “Queen Elizabeth” aircraft carrier. The birthplace of the former aircraft carrier now is relying on China’s machinery and equipment used to complete the most critical assembly work, this news should be brought to our attention.
Chinese industry “to take 800 million pants for an Airbus 380 aircraft,” the era is gone. Adequate financial resources, a huge production capacity and the strength of a new generation of researchers, these three together, is bound to bring a steady stream of Chinese military development dividends. ▲ (author Beijing media people Du J)
