Chinese F-10 fighter world rankings: You’ll never guess
Chinese independent R & D success of the first high-performance, modern fighter, the J-10 aroused great enthusiasm of the military enthusiast, has also been considerable criticism. Uncompromising in its supporters and opponents, at loggerheads; the former tend to exaggerate the aircraft’s combat capability, while the latter cost is too high, outdated technology, the grounds of its large increase attacked. So the fact that how? J-10 fighter of the forest in the world of real Where is it?
First let us summarize the overall situation of the world fighter: fighter can be divided into two categories according to the volume/weight of the heavy fighter and light fighter, the former F-14, F-15, F-22, and Su-27/30 series on behalf of, the latter represented by the F-16, F/A-18A//C/D, EF2000, J-10 and Rafale . The heavy fighters tend to use the most advanced technology at the local blood to ensure that as a strong operational capability. In fact, today is also only the F-15, F-22, and Su-27/30 series in the structure of large-scale use of expensive titanium components.
heavy fighters expensive and limited number of equipment, light aircraft are generally used to supplement the deficiencies of the heavy fighter, the implementation of the relatively easier task; such as the F-16 inception There is no all-weather, BVR combat capability, only to be put in non-guided bombs for the daytime-the-horizon combat and visual. European countries were affected by the restrictions of national strength, can not afford the high/low (heavy/light) with a combination of fighters and forced to complete a variety of tasks in a single model. EF2000 and Rafale like “heavy” light fighter of national strength is strong (Britain, France, Germany, Italy), R & D, and weak national strength and Sweden to develop a cheaper price of the JAS-39 aircraft and Chinese mainland/Pakistan’s JF-17, the IDF, Taiwan, South Korea’s F-50 (T-50 fighter version envisaged) belong to the same ultra-light fighter.the
The heavy fighter in combat radius, radar, power, payload, improved potential had a light aircraft can not match advantage, therefore heavy fighters such as the F-22 and Su-27/30 series and a light aircraft such as the J-10 on the comparison is not appropriate. Compared with other light fighter, the J-10′s performance is quite good. Based on existing data, we estimate, in air combat load (1/2 internal fuel, air-to-air missiles), J-10′s wing loading is less than 300 kg/m 2, weight ratio close to 1.2. Although this J-10 air combat thrust to weight than lower than the EF2000 and Rafale thrust to weight ratio, do not lose most of the F-16 F/A-18A//C/D weight ratio, wing loading, and EF2000 and Rafale is extremely close, much lower than the F-16 and F/A-18A//C/D air combat wing loading. By inference, similar to the F-16, F/A-18A//C/D, J-10 subsonic acceleration performance slightly inferior to the EF2000 and Rafale, fairly subsonic maneuverability and agility, and EF2000 and Rafale better than the F-16 and F/A-18A//C/D; supersonic acceleration performance, sprint speed, mobility and agility and EF2000 similar, better than other models (sweep delta wing, low wing loading. adjustable inlet point to the excellent performance of the supersonic).
then compared with the F-35 stealth fighter, the J-10 Is there a stroke it? A fact that has not been widely recognized that the F-35 is not strictly defined on the aircraft, will be referred to as a light bomber more in line with the actual situation. F-35 design ideas from the study of the U.S. Air Force on close ground support tactics, setting the operational environment is the fighting frontier of large-scale heavy armored corps, set the combat object movement in the mobile field air defense system under the cover of armor forces.
F-35 does not emphasis on air combat performance, its flight performance of the F-16, F/A-18A//C/D compared to no increase, the maximum speed decreased (from the F-16 M2.0 and F/A-18A//C/D M1.8 down to M1.4), the reason is simple: close support does not require high air combat performance, speed too high will make the pilot can not observe the situation on the ground. Similarly, the requirements of the F-35 set the operational environment of their stealth capability is limited; the U.S. Air Force does not require the F-35 penetration depth air defense system, the F-35 radar stealth is designed to only in the I/J band effective, that is able to effectively fight fighter fire control radar and a mobile field air defense system radar; decimetric band at the longer wavelengths, such as the KJ2000 the L-band and the S300 ig, ird ??radar the D-band, the F-35 radar stealth undermined. In addition, the F-22, F-35 is not invisible in the infrared. J-10 and thus may be early warning aircraft, or high-performance ground-based radar to guide or use of passive RF sensors positioned close to the F-35; but the distance near to tens of kilometers in the F-35 radar stealth will not be able to beat the J-10 fire control radar.
F-35 radar stealth will give active radar homing air-to-air missiles causing the problem, passive RF-guided (anti-radiation) and infrared-guided The missiles are unaffected, and the Russian R-27 and R-77 series BVR AAM are anti-radiation and infrared-guided model, the technical problems inherent in this type of guidance system is not equipped with PL-12. F-35 slow, the initiative in the war with the J-10 J-10 side, while the F-35, unable to chase at full speed retreat J-10, can not be avoided J-dashed with its 10 war. J-10 airborne electronic systems and weaponry is not related to the advanced level in the West a certain gap, after all, when the new Western fighter jets have been equipped with active phased array radar in the J-10 is still using conventional pulse Doppler radar. Electronic equipment, however, update speed is very fast, a fighter in the service period will experience several times electronic equipment upgrades, the rapid development of electronics industry in China will allow the J-10 in airborne electronic systems quickly catch up with the advanced Western .
so the critics of the first batch of production J-10 airborne electronic systems out of date really does not make sense. As for the weapons and equipment, not only airborne electronic systems, like escalating, and effectively there is no need to over-the pursuit of the advanced nature of the technical. The fact is that the U.S. Air Force most of the airborne weapons are the Vietnam War era and developed in the 1980s.
J-10 early production more expensive is inevitable, for the following reasons:
1, production companies must recover the construction costs of R & D expenses and production lines
2, the immaturity of the production line, the efficiency is not high with the the continuous operation of the production line, the total output of the increasing R & D costs and the recovery of construction costs of the production line, the maturity of production technology, production efficiency, the price of post-production will significantly decline.
J-10 does not like Su-27/30 extensive use of expensive titanium alloy, using one instead of two engines, spare parts The total number is much smaller, post-production J-10, the unit price will be significantly lower than the unit price of J-11. This the F-15/F-16 U.S. production history can be fully proved. Large Chinese Air Force J-7, Q-5 fleet is rapidly aging, in addition to the double delta wing, J-7 since the 1990s the production of advanced age are outside the (Q-5 in the late 1980s had already discontinued) , an urgent need for a large number of new aircraft. New offensive orientation also equipped with high-performance, multi-role fighter. So mass-produced J-10 (Chinese Air Force may eventually need to 1000) is absolutely necessary.
J-10 J-11 engine’s versatility will effectively simplify the logistical support. To sum up, the J-10 is not particularly advanced, but comparable to the overall design and the latest European fighters. Although it was unable to confrontation with the F-22, but enough to beat the F-35 (assuming that the opposing sides have AWACS). In the case of mass production, the unit price will be significantly lower than the Su-27/30/J-11. Will be referred to as the single best fighter in the world is not exaggerated.
