Analysts say China to build aircraft carriers to promote national development in many fields
is modified in the” Kuznetsov “was or will become China’s first aircraft carrier. The picture shows the “Kuznetsov” was data for
Journal newspaper first issue 584, “China’s first aircraft carrier,” born “in mind “, the media has been widespread concern inside and outside. Since this issue, the newspaper will be launched “China’s aircraft carrier,” a series of reports, so stay tuned.
“International Herald Tribune” reporter freelance writer Zhang Bin Yang Hai Tao from Beijing in recent days, the “Kuznetsov” was overseas reports (see Section 584 newspaper reported that “China’s first aircraft carrier.” the birth of “mind”) continuous heating, the “Kuznetsov” was a shipboard weapon systems, water time, carrier-based aircraft selection speculation on each surface. In addition, the construction cost of the aircraft carrier has become the focus of discussion in the foreign media, alluding to some foreign media in China Navy aircraft carrier, “the top luxury.”
abroad, the aircraft carrier in addition to “large-scale integrated maritime combat platforms,” ??the scientific name, there is another special tag, such as “Hey do not eat the animal swallowing gold”, “money-burning machine” and so on. However, this is a coin has two sides. Carrier tangible and intangible value, are far beyond the carrier itself, not only military security, the spillover effect of driving the carrier, will promote and enhance the socio-economic development of technology.
“burn” also “make money”
such a large build an aircraft carrier battle platform, driven by technology, equipment development to achieve “amazing” level. From the basic aircraft hull, power plant, propulsion systems, radar, weapon systems to carrier-based aircraft design and manufacturing, from the operational command to the flight controls, landing systems, means that almost all new equipment and technology development. Modern ships “intelligent”, “information” required upgrade for new computer support systems, multi-function control, intelligent communications, navigation, target identification and carrier-based laser research and development of new weapons systems, will also play a huge role.
the aircraft carrier battle group supporting the construction, expansion of the aircraft carrier home port, airport, land-based aircraft carrier construction, will bring even greater domestic demand, a significant development of related industries. Large to hull materials, office automation and small aircraft drinking water systems, all containing considerable business opportunities.
British new carrier construction process, the only insulation system with the British Royal Kang signed a value of ￡ 57 million contract, the insulation system, while providing 350 jobs; and Thales UK signed a $ 250 million pounds based communications system contract, while providing 50 jobs; even as an auxiliary treatment facilities, aircraft carrier contract, also worth 100 million pounds.
aircraft development from the national situation, usually invested billions of dollars, will bring tens or even hundreds of billions of dollars in the market and employment needs. It can be said, self-transformation or construction of aircraft carriers, for a country’s domestic economy, driven pretty obvious, carriers also can “make money.”
enhance awareness of the National Ocean
China has a long coastline, as a land and sea power, relative to the United States, Japan and other traditional maritime countries, national marine awareness is relatively weak. As of today, referring to the ocean, greet people is probably more of a mind “island chain” and “storm the lock.” In the subconscious, the ocean is still a source of danger.
“United Nations Convention on Law of the Sea” into effect, China’s maritime rights and interests has been greatly expanded, but generally speaking, the national maritime rights and interests will still maintain the basic defensive and passive. At present, China is the only country without Security Council’s five national carrier, Japan, India and other neighboring countries have been or are about to build its own aircraft carrier. Have aircraft carriers, is not only a military capability requirements, the national show to maintain maritime security and maritime rights and interests of an important benchmark.
Sun Yat-sen once said: “The winners of sea power, its strength often dominant.” It can be said, have aircraft carriers for the upgrading of China’s national maritime awareness, for China as a maritime power to enhance self-confidence, will undoubtedly play a positive role in promoting.
assume more international responsibility
Navy is the only take the country in times of peace the military services, and support the implementation of foreign policy is a powerful tool, but also create a favorable environment for national maritime security and strategic military services.
recent years, the Chinese navy in the Gulf of Aden, off the Somali coast to escort, Wenchuan disaster relief and other tasks are diverse military tasks such as outstanding performance. However, relative to the U.S. military, the lack of aircraft carriers and other large offshore platforms, the Chinese navy in peacetime delivery of large-scale deployment and ability to use still seems inadequate.
and aircraft carriers in service, will greatly enhance China’s naval escort in the far sea, overseas, humanitarian aid, UN peacekeeping operations and international disaster relief operations, emergency evacuation, and the fight against terrorism, piracy, smuggling and other crimes at sea activities. Meanwhile, the international community, but also to further improve China’s ability to assume the obligations of a big country, to carry out a more extensive joint naval exercises, maintaining order in the high seas and other areas to further play a constructive role in promoting international maritime order in the direction towards a more just and equitable development, should consolidate and expand China’s international status and marine development.
