What is worthy of China: 10 years of military supplies from Russia




The Stockholm Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) has published data on arms exports for 2019. This allows us to consider the supply of Russian combat systems over the past decade. First of all, China, once a major customer for the Russian Federation, is of interest.

Back in 2005, the PRC ordered (as part of licensed production) eight 76-mm artillery guns AK-176 ship-based, but they are still being supplied. As SIPRI points out, in China this system has received the designation H / PJ-26 and is being installed one at a time on Type-071 (Yuzhao) landing craft docks. It is just planned to build 8 pennants of this type. In 2010, 59 AK-176 guns were already purchased under the same conditions - in this case, for Type-056 frigates (Jiangdao).

In 2018, the 2004 contract for the supply of 30 Fregat air defense radars was fulfilled. As noted, they are intended for 28 or more frigates of type 054A (Jiangkai-2) and 1 aircraft carrier Liaoning. SIPRI believes that the radar data was probably produced in China.

A similar conclusion is drawn about the ordered 2004 MP-120 "Walnut" fire control radars ordered in 90 (they were equipped with frigates of the 2018A type - 054 per pennant until 4), which should serve the HHQ-16 medium-range air defense systems (joint Sino-Russian project for the modernization of the 9K37M1-2 Calm airborne SAM system).



In accordance with the contract of 2011, China produced 120 of the 125 ordered AL-31F turbojet engines for the J-15 carrier-based fighter. According to the agreement of 2014, 60 AL-31F-M2 power plants manufactured in China were shipped, already for the latest Celestial fighter J-20. In accordance with the 2016 agreements, 123 AL-31FN produced in China came for the J-10 multipurpose fighter (possibly, this batch included spare power plants).

Actually in Russia, from the products delivered by the PLA, only eight S-400 air defense systems and 300 48N6 anti-aircraft missiles were produced (by agreement of 2015). Only for them does SIPRI indicate a payment of $ 3 billion. However, for unknown reasons, this organization did not mention yet another acquisition in 2015 - two squadrons of Su-35 fighters, which cost Beijing about $ 2,5 billion.

This review as a whole demonstrates the serious changes that have occurred in the military-technical cooperation between the two countries over the past decade. Compared to past times, China only needs to purchase the most advanced Russian models. weapons and then in a significantly limited range - in terms of fighters and long-range air defense systems. It is not known how deeply localized in the Celestial Empire is the production of AL-31, but the very fact of the release of engines - the "heart" of the aircraft - at its own capacities says a lot.

On all other "fronts", the military industry China, apparently, considers Russian products unworthy of attention.

    Here a natural union of China and Russia is formed ... contrary to the interests of the United States.
    China's resources and military technologies are of interest to China no less than economic cooperation with the United States ... though China still does not understand that the United States is a country of swindlers and scammers ... sooner or later, the US State Department will palm the Chinese a big pig.

      The Chinese have no allies. There are fellow travelers. Do not bring the Lord, they will turn up a chance and they will bite off a piece of Russia. Without hesitation. They themselves wrote about resources.

        Well, many people wish to receive Russian resources, and not only China but also Germany, Japan, the USA ... everyone wants to bite off a piece fatter from her body ... it always has been and will continue ... and it depends only on us whether they eat us or choke .

        The Chinese have a STATE strategy to sell not high-tech, but inexpensive, while CONSTANTLY improving quality.
        This also applies to weapons.
        They take up specific markets - for example, a light tank for African off-road.

      That was in vain minus this comment.
      After all, there has never been a convincing argument against such an alliance at VO.
      There is good folk wisdom. On bezrybe and ..... Russia cannot yet stand alone, not even the United States, but the collective West. (including Japan in this concept). Therefore, such a union is vital to us.

      They stand each other. It is we who do not know what China is. Despite the many illustrative examples.

    A strange conclusion about unworthy attention from China, Russian arms. It would seem that the conclusion should be different - China has become one of the countries producing advanced models for most weapons. No one is surprised that all the advanced countries in this area do not buy or are purchasing very few foreign weapons. These countries include the United States, World Bank, France, Germany and others. In addition, the economy also intervenes, for example, the United States might have bought the S-400, but this fact will undermine the credibility of their own products and they will never do that. The one exception is the RD-180 engines. But this is apparently the exception, confirming the rule.

    Well, what can I say? Well done. China, as a giant pump, absorbs the best world technologies, legally and illegally. Until recently, everyone just laughed at Chinese quality and today almost all high-tech products come from China (market consumer goods do not count). Yes, and why spend money on long, costly and exhausting own research, if you can copy the best and save a lot?

    And there everything is written for the sake of the last paragraph. True, at various arms exhibitions, these “unworthy of attention” samples are simply stuck with Chinese photojournalists. laughing

    Well, as if China doesn’t need a lot of Russian weapons. Buy a heel or a dozen rockets, disassemble, and do it yourself based on them. In the place of Russia, I wouldn’t sell anything to them at all. Immediate penny gains will surely return in ruble losses.

    According to 2019, they wrote that China surpassed Russian arms sales

    We must supply products, not technology. Why prepare yourself an opponent with your own hands? Or is someone counting on gratitude? Yeah, shazz, do not wait.

    China has one border, where they have no disputes, it is Russia, along the rest of the perimeter they have a conflict in one form or another, as well as Tibet, Chinese Turkestan, the problem of the Strait of Malak, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and other little things. no less than ours, or even more, so only a fool can organize an additional adventure on the northern border. In the medium term, we are fellow travelers and are very complementary to each other.

    Do not carry nonsense.

    TSAMTO data, period 2016-2019:

    USA - 139,685 billion dollars (1st place),
    Russia - 53,436 billion dollars (2nd place),
    France - $ 37,492 billion (3rd place),
    Germany - 18,160 billion dollars (4th place),

    Italy - $ 7,644 billion (9th place)
    South Korea - $ 4,994 billion (10th place).

    China is ranked 8th in terms of export valuation.

    More specifically, what are these “almost all” products? Name at least 5 high-tech goods exported from China.

    And why spend money on long, costly, and exhausting your own research, if you can copy the best and save a lot?

    I will not evaluate this maxim from a moral point of view, although there is much to be said, but this is a position that is always catching up.

    Those. I gave specific numbers and a source, and some hammer-bird puts a minus on this message. A certain account throws in that China has bypassed Russia in arms exports, as it supposedly heard somewhere, and this bunch in a puddle is gaining pluses. L - lobbying? Only some kind of ridiculously clumsy.
    Bring the source.

    Greet the Chinese with one hand, hold the knife behind your back with the other hand. Just in case.
