China armed with new EW aircraft

18
The PLA Navy Northern Fleet has adopted a new electronic warfare aircraft based on the H-6 bomber (a modified copy of the Soviet Tu-16). As writes Asia Times, adopted the aircraft received the designation H-6G; they were assigned to the PLA Navy Base in Zhanjiang in Guangdong Province.


H-6G received suspension containers with electronic warfare systems. Technical details about the suppression systems installed on the aircraft are not disclosed. It is only known that the equipment in outboard containers is unified with similar systems of electronic warfare aircraft based on J-15 carrier-based fighters.

China armed with new EW aircraft


It should be noted that up to now, PLA under the designation H-6G were armed with guidance and adjustment of cruise missiles. They were developed on the basis of H-6 and adopted in the 1990-ies. As noted by the Asia Times, these aircraft were converted into new aircraft of electronic warfare.

As part of the armed forces, electronic warfare aircraft must perform several tasks. Among them - the formulation of interference to enemy communication systems, the suppression of radar stations and weapons guidance systems, as well as the detection of radar and transmitting antennas. Aircraft electronic warfare can, for example, "hide" the movement of troops, suppressing enemy detection systems, reports "N + 1"

    Tu-16 is cool! High-tech, modern China. In 1963, we removed them from production.

      Well, everyone sees only the Chinese fleet. And they don’t see that in other sectors they don’t have such a shocking pace. Once such junk is still used. I will repeat it for the hundredth time - we have different priorities.

        In fairness it’s worth noting that we have not only different priorities, our industry capabilities are so different that we don’t even want to give numbers, it remains to be glad that they still fly on airplanes that we developed 65 years ago

        So what ? B-52, Tu-95 are used. They satisfy modern requirements. Supersound - unnecessary luxury, invisibility - too, which are expensive to the detriment of the basic characteristics - range and payload. Just this class of aircraft (distant, but not yet intercontinental) has died out everywhere except the USSR. Why cut a good thing if their content is affordable for the Chinese? Maybe we should cut the IL-38 to please the "new"?

      Well, you can mock even if you turn blue ... and do we have enough EW aircraft? At the same time, the same IL-22 "Logger" was created on the basis of the IL-18 aircraft, which was created in shaggy 1968 ... and now sit laugh with the Chinese.

      Take a look at your phone. In Russia, more than half of the population use Chinese phones. And about the plane - he has a twenty-fold safety margin

      Tu - 16. The cost of one aircraft is 800 500 rubles (for 1967 year).
      Eight hundred thousand rubles cost one bomber !!!!

        These are full-fledged rubles, which are 1 to 1 per dollar. Plus, it is worth considering the inflation of several thousand percent that has happened since then.

          laughing
          That you give up. Since then, the dollar only once in 5 has fallen in price. That is, 500%.
          And still, the difference in prices for bombers is five hundred times. lol
          2 billion and 100 million apiece b2 .. well, let 4,5 million for Tu-16 -)))))

    In fact, the Chinese version of the "perpetual plane!" good Since they use it, it means that it fully satisfies them! And the Chinese are also developing their electronic warfare systems, realizing that they cannot win a war without them.

      Generally speaking, everyone is always armed, this is a continuous process, weapons are being updated all the time, the old is being removed from service. Just constantly reading the news about new weapons, one gets the impression that everyone is only doing what they are preparing for war

    Urgently test on AUG, let them write a report in the nearest Japanese port.

      Such EW aircraft are the antipode of AWACS aircraft. AUG is not at the box office at all.

        It is electronic warfare, and not a guidance aircraft. I do not like the AUG, let the destroyer shuganet.

    A very beautiful and flying airplane, a classic! And the Chinese engines adapted the D-30s of their production WP-8 are called. With electronics, with their advancement in this direction, no problems are foreseen.

    A beautiful and useful aircraft. But on the subject of the latest Chinese bomber, it’s silent, I wonder what it will be. Or wait for what ..?)

    Why did everyone attack the plane? This is all just a carrier, he does not need to fight with enemy fighters. He is not required to perform aerobatics, etc.
    Its task is to stay in the air for as long as possible, carry EW suspensions on the suspensions, power them with electric energy and interfere.
    If there is a threat of attack, escort fighters can be identified.
    This is just the case when content is important.
