Han said the show exports destroyer design not keep up with world trends
<span class="img_descr" unknown type destroyers. According to information provided by the relevant enterprises, the destroyer is 140 meters long and a displacement of 4500 tons, the maximum speed of 28, equipped with a 76 mm caliber gun, equipped with anti-ship weapons in recent anti-weapons and torpedoes, the main role is to attack surface and medium-sized warships against submarines and to participate in convoy operations. the
Korean military website Viggen Military Forum published an article on May 3, the new stealth warship on display at the 2012 DSA Defense Exhibition held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The article that China exhibited a variety of warships, a never before available, large tonnage similar to 054A missile frigate is most striking. Compared to the “New Youth”, which uses a more thorough stealth design, or dual hangar layout to enhance anti-submarine detection capabilities. Note, however, the type of battleship compared to similar international warships still significant gaps. Has not used full stealth design, carrier-based electronic devices are still based in their imitation of the Russian-made system. Might nevertheless be significant gains on the side warships market.
Korean media said the 2012 DSA Defense Exhibition held in Kuala Lumpur, not only exhibited a new VT-2 export tanks, warships design department come up with a variety of new warships designed exhibitors . Warships on display only in the conceptual stage, but shows the progress of China’s warship design. The most representative is a large guided missile frigate of unknown type. This type of warship design is obvious from the Chinese navy recently a lot of equipment Type 054A frigate, great advances in stealth and anti-submarine capability, but the equipment, electronic equipment compared to the prototype did not significantly enhance still based on imitation Russian equipment, the overall level of technology compared to similar international warships have significant gaps. As export warships or side warships market-based medium level of development, Third World countries access to larger gains.
First, the Chinese new warships overall improved significantly
Korean media said, in order to successfully exported to Pakistan F-22P missile frigate as a symbol, China has gradually will be active-duty warship upgraded to improve research and development of foreign trade warships. The new missile frigate The exhibition is undoubtedly China has a lot of equipment 054A missile frigate on the basis of its improved results into stealth and anti-submarine capability. Compared to the prototype anti-submarine capability may be a result of the layout of the double hangar and get promoted, but the anti-ship and air defense capabilities are compared to the 054A no significant growth. However, this type of warship still through the prototype stealth and anti-submarine upgrade the overall technological level is still significantly improved. Compared to the 054A frigate-class escort two larger fully enclosed mast. The technical features, the Chinese have more electronic equipment integrated into the mast inside the exposed significantly reduced the number of electronic devices. As the chimney of the ship’s main source of thermal radiation, also use stealth layout better than the prototype, although it did not like the “Horizon” class as with the superstructure integration point of view but from a larger stealth shape, the or thermal radiation shielding technology. As the middle of the Chinese warships stealth soft underbelly of the hull in this type of ships also carried a better overall design, equipped with two non-stealth-mounted anti-ship missile launcher, but the overall stealth effect undoubtedly improved significantly more than the prototype. Another obvious this type of warship technology upgrading, is to use a double hangar layout. Although from the pictures released by the anti-exhibition can not directly see the structure, but the hangar is wide and very flat top of the hangar structure, coupled with the potential users of this type of warship (Southeast Asian countries are in the development of conventional submarines blowout stage, the main warships of the anti-submarine performance of great importance) countries focus on anti-submarine capability, this type of warship very likely double hangar layout. Coupled with the type of ships may be equipped with the potential users of the equipment of the inch “Super Lynx” or American “Sea Hawk” anti-submarine helicopters, and its anti-submarine capability will no doubt be higher than any of the Chinese Navy active duty a surface ship to reach the world top level. The exported ships to stealth, anti-submarine for major improvements direction that China has made great strides in the design of large surface ships. Refer to the “we” trade principles, in the design or construction stage, made similar vessels or have a higher technical level. With the already entered a stage of rapid development, the aircraft carrier as the representative of the domestic large surface ships, the Navy’s overall level of equipment, or ushered in by far the largest leaps and bounds improvement.
Secondly, the Chinese new warships has not kept pace with the trend of the world
Korean media said the type of export frigates compared to its prototype, as well as active duty recognized by a surface ship, the overall design has received a significant upgrade, but can not deny that reflects the stealth and electronic equipment as the representative of a series of technical limitations show, it is still a failure to keep up with the world trend of the new warships. And fifth-generation fighter has been unable to find the correct performance of stealth positioning, and warships for the urgent needs of the stealth performance, as early as during the Cold War has been fully manifested. Therefore, even if based on a pile of equipment and low stealth performance, said the Russian-built warships, regarded as the basic performance of the battleship on the latest 20380 series built frigate, will also be stealth, thus forming a technical style with Russian characteristics of stealth warships. In contrast, although China is the first time in the 167 “Shenzhen” missile destroyer, using the overall stealth design, but in this type of export frigates, its performance in this aspect is still there are many soft underbelly. The export frigate, on the 1st of the mast top and equipment is an imitation of the Russian-made “roof” long-range search radar, the highest in the ship’s highest point, but did not use any stealth design. On both sides of the mast is also equipped with 6 Exposed radar equipment. Most people do not understand is that the warships of this anti-submarine performance has been a major upgrade on its foredeck even superfluous equipped with two obsolete 12 Rocket Depth transmitter, which not only can not fight a modern diesel-electric submarines also cause serious damage to the warship stealth effect.
Korean media said the lack of stealth performance, electronic equipment also face greater limitations. Two bell-shaped radome from this type of warship deployment in the top of the bridge and after the top of the mast, and the imitation of the mast to the top of the 1st “roof” radar, electronic systems of this type of warship is still Russian-made imitation of Russia system and equipment-based, self-study electronic equipment is not widely available in this type of warship. Compared to similar warships have been equipped with phased array radar, imitation compared to the Russian-made equipment has been significantly enhance the overall level of technology of electronic equipment is still at a distinct disadvantage. Thus, at least from this type of warship electronic equipment layout can be seen from the study of carrier-based electronic devices and to the extent of the full-scale equipment, the export warships at this stage have not yet benefited from China’s technological progress possible. In particular, the type of export warships these technical limitations, not from design errors, but subject to the current level of technology in China. At this stage, China is difficult and similar high-end warships sales to competition, but for Third World countries, the types of warships is likely to be the best choice, and then detonated the battleship’s arms sales to mid-market.
Third, the Chinese new warships will be hot in the mid-market
Korean media said Pakistan ordered four F-22P missile frigate. have very direct to the Chinese expressed the hope that the desire of purchasing more high-end escort. It is not difficult to see, on the one hand, the overall technological level of China’s export of warships has received some recognition, similar to the F-22P this equipment upgrade in the second-tier Chinese warships on the basis of export, on the other hand, has been difficult to adapt to the Third World users demand for more high-end export warship has become inevitable. China’s exhibition this large-scale export frigates, it is precisely in keeping with this trend. The of warships performance in similar warships moderate, or will make it become a hot product in the mid-ship sales to the market based on military spending plenty of third world countries. Southeast Asia as the Third World countries, the most concentrated, the most intense competition with each other region, the representation of the demand for warships. In the region, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, countries, military spending is relatively abundant, the ability procurement of high technology content of surface ships. Compared to India, this region of the great powers in the area of ??arms development, there are still large limitations, the most obvious is to combat a small environment, low technical level of the overall equipment system. This kind of environment in these countries the warships technical level is not too high, otherwise it will be difficult to adapt to the low technology base. On the other hand, the the warships performance can not be too low to be able to play a flagship role, led the other ships in a smaller operational area, the sea of ??low-intensity confrontation. This exhibition of this new export frigates precisely adapted to the needs. Although the overall technical level of this type of warship medium shipborne phased array radar, with all the hardware facilities of the international top-level warships. Their existing equipment to meet the smaller waters, leading small and medium-sized warships to combat the demand. Its large hull, but also the type of warship different levels of technology upgrades to create the conditions. If Europe similar top warships than for US-made of the “Sea Wolf” class attack nuclear submarines of, then this type of Chinese export warships then is “Virginia” class attack nuclear submarine’s appropriate to simplify, so that the combat capability of enough of cost is cheaper, more effective use within the larger context of This is precisely the basic needs of the Third World countries are purchasing vessels.the
Korean media said this warships can be regarded as a microcosm of the Chinese Navy. Through nearly 20 years of rapid development, China has reached world advanced level in the shipbuilding system, lacking only the R & D and large-scale use of new technologies. China developed its own aircraft carrier as a symbol, the Chinese navy has been ushered in since its birth date, the largest technology development and shipbuilding climax. Then, the Chinese navy is very likely to go beyond the old red navy, as only a full-scale confrontation with the U.S. Navy sea power. (Spring)
