"Jet food for the Su-30": in Malaysia, appreciated the Chinese fighter FTC-2000G


Beijing has managed to enter the lucrative market for light combat aircraft (LCA) in ASEAN: the Chinese media presented news on the order by an unnamed country of a batch of FTC-2000G Lead-in Fighter Trainer (LIFT) aircraft.


Who needs a Chinese masterpiece?


This machine, called JL-9 in the PLA, is largely based on the FT-7 / JJ-7 two-seat TCB (NATO designation is Mongol). According to the manufacturer AVIC, the FTC-2000G has a maximum speed of 1,4 Mach (or 1728 km / h), a maximum take-off mass of 11 tons, a maximum range of 1650 km and a ceiling of 15 km. Without additional fuel, it is able to stay in the air for two hours, equipped with “modern radars and SLAs”, has 7 suspensions and a maximum load capacity of 3 tons.

In 2019, six FTC-2000s were delivered to Sudan. Some have decided that Myanmar will become the next foreign operator. However, as indicated by the Malaysia Flying Herald, “The country's air forces are in the midst of modernization, purchasing the MiG-29 supersonic interceptor, the Chengdu / PAC JF-17 Thunder light multipurpose combat aircraft, and a large number of Yak-130 UBS.”

The Yak-130 has already taken on all the role that could be assigned to the FTC-2000G in the process of initial pilot training

- notes the publication, indicating that for similar reasons it was not destined to buy a Chinese car and Laos, which already has 4 Yak-130s and does not need more because of the "lack of access to the sea and external enemies."


FTC-2000G


The true price of “power”


However, the situation is different with Cambodia, which has a "bitter relationship" with Thailand and Vietnam. Hanoi, hiding in the air of the Su-30, is at odds with its ally, China.

At the same time, Cambodia has only five L-39s and two MiG-21-2000s (Israeli modernization). The remaining machines, as noted by the publication, are in disrepair. Against this background, the Chinese media present the FTC-2000 as a "powerful fighter." According to the Malaysia Flying Herald, he will only perform in such a collision with the Vietnamese Su-22, F-5T Tigris and KAI T-50TH Golden Eagle.

However, pointing to this, it should be understood that the FTC-2000G will become a "jet food" for the Vietnamese Su-30 (Su-30MKM)

- concludes the publication Malaysia Flying Herald, noting that the Chinese car has nothing to oppose and aviation Thailand, if there will be an air battle with the F-16 Fighting Falcon and SAAB JAS-39C / D Gripen.

At the same time, one should pay attention to the experience of the pilots: “Cambodian pilots are clearly not enough of the valor obtained during the preparation”.

        The FTC-2000G export light fighter is a further development of the FTC-2000 Shanying training aircraft with improved combat capabilities. Maximum payload weight of 3 tons at 7 nodes of the suspension (missiles PL-8 and PL-9), max. take-off weight 9,3 tons, max. speed - 1,6M, engine - turbofan WS14 with afterburner pull 7800 kgf

      ====
      It’s easier: Armament JL-9 with a total weight of up to 2000 kg is located on five nodes of the external suspension (four underwing and the central under-fuselage) and can include air-to-air (melee) missiles with TGS type PL-8 (Chinese version Soviet K-13) and PL-9, as well as NAR and free-falling air bombs. In addition, a 23-mm Type 23 gun (Chinese version GSh-23L) was installed under the fuselage.
      The PL-9 is most likely an unlicensed copy of the American AIM-9L / M Sidewinder.

            Guizhou JL-9 is a Chinese combat training aircraft developed by Guizhou based on Guizhou JJ-7 (a Chinese copy of the MiG-21U) [2].

            The aircraft is offered for export under the designation FTC-2000 Mountain Eagle and is equipped with the Italian Grifo S-7 radar.


            FTC-2000G is an export version of the JL-9G, first introduced at Airshow China 2012 in Zhuhai [5]. In the future, the aircraft is planned to be equipped with the Liming WP-14C Kunlun-3 engine with maximum thrust on afterburner 76,5 kN.

                      It is there, on the nose, that the air intake and the place, because there are minimal disturbances, the problem is precisely the location of the radars in the nose. But on missiles, a pipe scheme is found.

            The tail (stabilizer), elevators and most likely the engine - from the MiG-21, this is obvious. Wing - from the F-5E "Tiger", in any case, its influx, similar (but without such an influx) wing with a variable sweep along the leading edge was in the Chinese versions of the MiG-21.
            In general, a good replacement for the F-5E for poor countries. If it is just as easy to maintain and pilot. The thrust ratio is at least much higher.

          The price is important here! Judging by the performance characteristics (speed, ceiling, load), it will be better than the Yak130, especially if the price is the same, or even lower. After all, both UBSs, with the ability to fight, but the Chinese seem to be more adapted to the battle, it would be interesting to compare the MSAs of both machines. By the way, the Chinese also have their own analogue Yak130, Hongdu L-15, which, thanks to dill engines, is 50% faster than Yak !!! has a ceiling 4km higher and 50% cheaper. China is a direct competitor to Russia in the arms market, just the countries of the 3rd world, partly developing countries, blacks and Asians "beggars" are buying Chinese and Russian weapons.

            If the L-15 is cheaper than the Yak, then let me tell you about the fact that in China the salaries are already higher than the Russian ones, I will listen.

            And in order to make a combat aircraft out of a Yak-130, you need to put a bunch of everything on it, and its price will fly up. At the same time, supersonic fusion is rarely done, because other types of aerodynamics are used in supersonic sound, in particular, the cone with the best flow around it is a cone, therefore all fighters have sharp noses. This means that the aircraft should support more modes, and sharpening to supersonic makes it less effective in typical modes for TCB. So the Chinese simply ponte, unlike the Koreans, who just want to unify even at the cost of more expensive TCB.

    "If the creation of the L-15 UBS was apparently due to the needs of not only the domestic, but also the external aviation markets, then the developers of the FTC-2000 combat trainer focused primarily on the military aviation of the PRC itself, where in combat squadrons The Air Force and training centers operate mainly JJ-6 and JJ-7 two-seat combat training vehicles.In terms of their flight characteristics, these aircraft (especially the JJ-7) meet the modern requirements of the air force, but they have the same level of airborne equipment and weapons. match t only to the second generation of jet combat aviation and cannot be used effectively enough for training pilots for fighters of generations "4" and "4+" (FC-1, J-10, Su-27 and Su-ZOMK) coming from the end of 1990- x years into service with the PLA. "
    Quote from 2002 ....
    The calculation was for third world countries with a limited budget.
    But in the end it turned out that there are much more advanced cars that are slightly more expensive.
    The PRC can only dump, giving away its "new products" for a penny.

        But I have neither an iPad nor an iPhone. I don’t fundamentally buy Apple since the last century after the news flashed that Apple sponsored a rainbow parade. Moreover, now they have an open rainbow general manager (well, or blue, if that’s more clear to you). And the Samsung that I buy is made in Korea. Not Europe, of course, but not China.
        And in general, they do one thing on a contract for Western companies, using Western equipment and technologies, from which they have no right to deviate from a micron, and the Chinese there is only cheap labor, trained to carry out their operation, and not even understanding its place in full technological process. And it’s a completely different matter when they themselves develop the technology. Take at least Chinese jet engines. They look exactly like the Russians with whom they torn. But they develop less traction, but they burn out faster.

    not destined to buy a Chinese car and Laos, which already has 4 Yak-130 and does not need more because of the "lack of access to the sea and external enemies."

    Firstly, the aforementioned aircraft were not purchased by Laos in exchange for the already ready-made MiG-21s, but for the training of flight personnel, and accordingly the purchase of aviation equipment will continue ....
    In addition, Russian engineers restored the Lao Air Force air force, including upgrading the runway and replacing all navigation equipment, it is unlikely that they began to do this for the sake of 4 Yak-130s ....
    Secondly, the author’s logic about the absence of the need to have combat training aircraft is incomprehensible only because of the lack of access to the Laos Sea ... following the author’s logic, Belarus is not needed either ....
    Thirdly, regarding the lack of enemies in Laos, meanwhile, back in the 80s - 90s, Laos with the "empiricist" and pro-American Thailand had military border conflicts ....
    The rearmament of all Lao forces with the Russian military and military aircraft is supported by the PRC and the SRV ("older brothers of Laos"), which however do not want to spoil relations with the United States and Thailand ...

    Kitayose fellows - carried out a deep modernization of the MiG-21 airframe and its layout. Now it’s more maneuverable and more powerful radar in the nose fairing. So it turned out FTC-2000G

    In addition, Russian engineers restored the Lao Air Force air force, including upgrading the runway and replacing all navigation equipment, it is unlikely that they began to do this for the sake of 4 Yak-130s ....

    And for what reason the FTC-2000G is called a fighter when it has been a combat training aircraft all its life, which can be used as a light combat aircraft if necessary.

    The Yak-130 has already taken on all the role that could be assigned to the FTC-2000G in the process of initial pilot training

    This is just some kind of holiday!

    Neither FTC-2000. neither Yak-130 - not intended for initial training.

    Even the Korean F-50 should surpass Chinese begging in avionics, and in terms of performance characteristics, since it is bigger and has a normal engine.

    In principle, it is not intended for anything more than intercepting any unarmed aircraft and striking targets without serious air defense.
