2009, the PLA cruise missile side team to participate in the 60th anniversary parade.
comprehensive report of the World Wide Web, according to Russian military news network reported on June 21, as a sense of one-time combat unmanned aerial vehicles, cruise missiles, combat use far earlier than the UCAV one of the most successful products is the U.S. BGM-109 Tomahawk “, has been almost the embodiment as cruise missiles, but many of its performance is actually far better than similar products developed by Russia and China.
Russian media said, “Tomahawk” cruise missile is a very successful weapon, the main advantage is the use of safety, the efficiency is very high, and can be fired at the enemy zone. But there are some serious flaws, such as the flight speed is low, there is no active defense capability. In the recent war, the United States consumes more than 1900 pieces of sea, air-based cruise missiles, the battle is quite good. The U.S. Navy were equipped with about 2500-2800 cruise missiles, is the latest model “Tactical Tomahawk”, recently ordered 361. The main carrier consists of four Ohio-class nuclear submarines, nine Virginia-class nuclear submarines, three Seawolf-class nuclear submarines, 42, “Los Angeles” class nuclear submarines, 22 Ticonderoga class cruisers, 60 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers and 3 “Zhu Mua Stewart”-class destroyers. U.S. Air Force’s only cruise missile carrier 89 B-52 strategic bombers, and up to each carrying bomb 20.
Russian media said the U.S. “Tomahawk” cruise missiles are not without opponents, developed in Russia “gem”, “onyx”, “BrahMos”, “Club” series of product performance is excellent, range is somewhat less, but the flight speed and a strong general performance, submarines, surface ships, fighter aircraft, ground-launched devices can use a variety of carriers, in particular, “BrahMos” a series of land, sea and air base and club “ship-based and shore-based missile, the Navy has in Russia, China, India, Vietnam and equipment, including 877 and 636 submarines, frigates 11356 and 22350, the 20385 corvettes” Rajputs “and” New Delhi-class destroyers, Su-30 fighter plane, can not only attack ground and surface targets, but also to have some anti-submarine capability.
Russian media said that China is more positive in the developed and equipped with cruise missiles, in addition to imports from Russia, Ukraine procurement Soviet-made KH-55 “Tomahawk” cruise missiles from Pakistan, but also fully own technical strength and R & D capabilities, drawing on foreign products, independently developed various types of domestic cruise missiles, and now have a strong combat effectiveness molding products, including the East China Sea -10 “and” sword -10 supersonic long-range cruise missiles, both can use the vehicle, carrier-based launchers, and can also be mounted on the H-6M bomber, not only against surface targets, but also to attack ground targets, the maximum range of 2500-4000 km. In addition, China also manufacture the “Red Bird” series of subsonic cruise missile, it can use a variety of launchers, the main carriers, including JH -7 tactical bombers, submarines, destroyers, Type 054A frigate. In short, the performance of Chinese cruise missiles are very advanced in many ways no worse than American products. (Compiled: woodlands)
