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

58

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 simpler here: Armament JL-9 with a total weight of up to 2000 kg is located on five nodes of the external suspension (four underwing and a central under-fuselage) and can include an air-to-air missile (close combat) missile launcher with a PL-8 type TGS (Chinese version Soviet K-13) and PL-9, as well as NAR and free-falling bombs. In addition, a 23-mm Type 23 cannon (Chinese version of the GSh-23L) is installed under the fuselage.
        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.

              The tail (stabilizer), elevators and most likely the engine are from the MiG-21, this is obvious. The wing is from the F-5E "Tiger", in any case its inflow, a similar (but without such inflow) wing with 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 combat, it would be interesting to compare the OMS of both vehicles. By the way, the Chinese also have their own analogue of the Yak130, Hongdu L-15, which, thanks to the Ukrop engines, is 50% faster than the Yak !!! has 4 km higher ceiling and 50% cheaper. China is a direct competitor of Russia in the arms market, just the countries of the third world, partly developing countries, Negroes and Asians "beggars" buy 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 UBS L-15 was, most likely, 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, first of all, on the military aviation of the PRC itself, where in combat squadrons and training centers of the Air Force, mainly two-seat combat training vehicles JJ-6 and JJ-7 are operated.In terms of their flight characteristics, these aircraft (especially JJ-7) meet the modern requirements of the air force, but in terms of the level of onboard equipment and weapons they correspond only to the second generation of jet combat aviation and cannot be effectively used in training pilots for fighters of generations "4" and "4+" (FC-1, J-10, Su-27 and Su-ZOMK) arriving from the end of 1990- x years into service with the PLA.

          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.
