The newest low-noise Chinese submarine Type 096 is ready to go to sea: in the USA it is considered a copy of the American submarine

36

Development of modern underwater fleet is one of the main strategic objectives of China. According to Sohu, the newest Type 096 low-noise submarine is currently ready to go to sea.


The most powerful Chinese submarine


There is no doubt that in recent years, the PRC has made quite significant progress in the field of creating its own naval equipment. Thus, the aircraft carrier "Shandong", the destroyer with guided missiles Type 055, was presented, but the strategic missile nuclear submarine Type 096 until recently remained a real mystery. She was often talked about, but the Chinese military department was in no hurry to spread information about the submarine.

The Sohu publication highlights the advantages of the Type 096 submarine over the previous generation of PRC class 094 nuclear submarines. According to Sohu authors, the Chinese submarine of the 096 class has reached a level comparable to the latest generation submarines of other great maritime powers.

The submarine's combat power is based on the ability to launch long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles, which can attack any enemy targets at a distance of thousands of kilometers. Thus, the latest submarine can be regarded as a reliable tool for strategic deterrence of the enemies of the Celestial Empire.

According to Sohu, the newest boat is about 150 meters long and 20 meters wide, and has a displacement of 16 tons when fully loaded. The submarine's hull is extremely pressure resistant.

The PRC press is characterized by the desire to highlight the power of the Chinese state and the superiority of the Chinese weapons over the weapons of most potential rivals. Is it really?

The newest submarine or a replica of a 40-year-old American boat?


Maxim Starchak, a researcher at the Center for International and Defense Policy at Queens University, calls the developed Chinese submarine 096 class an analogue of the American Ohio class submarine. But Ohio class submarines were produced from 1981 to 1997, that is, 25-40 years ago.

Another expert, Managing Director of the FerryBridge Group Brian McGrath, claims that China's nuclear submarine program lags far behind other programs in the PRC's naval industry. This is explained, according to McGrath, by the long-term lack of attention of the Chinese leadership to the design and construction of nuclear submarines: for twenty years, the construction of submarines was not considered a priority in the naval industry.

In addition, the creation of submarines requires significant technical efforts, which are not always within the power of Chinese specialists. As for borrowing technology from other states, it takes a lot of time for the United States to explore the latest technological secrets.

At the same time, even American experts, with general skepticism about China's success in the field of the submarine fleet, admit that the 096 class submarine is really better than the 094 class submarines already in service with the PLA Navy. After all, the Type 096 will be the most well armed and the most the largest Chinese submarine for the entire history Chinese submarine fleet.

In addition, a distinctive feature of the submarine 096 will be its low noise compared to other submarines. In addition, there is no doubt that in the foreseeable future, China will continue further research in the development of the capabilities of its submarine fleet. Moreover, the confrontation between China and the United States in the Asia-Pacific region will only grow in the coming years, and the Celestial Empire should have reliable forces to respond to the Americans.

      The project type 096 is in no way similar to the American Ohio. You can look at the model type 096 at the link below and compare with Ohio. Although it also has, like Ohio, 24 silos, promising American Columbia-class missile carriers will each have 16 silo launchers for SLBMs.
      A promising project for the Chinese fleet is the creation of an even more powerful submarine type 096 "Teng", armed with 24 ballistic missiles. Displacement - 16000–20000 tons, length - 150 m, width - 20 m, type - double-hull. Main power plant: nuclear, two pressurized water reactors and two steam generating plants Travel speed - underwater up to 32 knots, immersion depth - maximum 600 m, armament - 20 or 24 SLBMs of the JL-2 (or JL-3) type, 533-mm TA. The submarine will be equipped with modern soundproofing systems, which makes the boat quiet (the noise level can be as low as 95-100 dB, and for boat 094 - 115 dB). According to some of the most optimistic data, by 2020 the Chinese strategic nuclear forces will consist of 4 Type 094 SSBNs with 12 JL-2 SLBMs and 4-8 Type 096 SSBNs with 24 JL-3 SLBMs.

    It is always more difficult to copy a technique than to create a new one based on their own technology.
    I think that the Americans compare the Chinese boat only with the characteristics of their boats.

      It is more difficult in the sense that the copy is always worse than the original, and as a rule with a strong delay of 5-50 years.

      2.number of dviguns and movers
      3. GED and gearbox operation ...
      and further down the list, without focusing on the level of noise and the capabilities of the SAC. And I generally keep quiet about the capabilities of Trident-2, as well as about the torpedo armament of SSBNs.
      Does it not bother you at all among the Hunfuz?
      It seems to me that they are repeating the backsides of submarine shipbuilding, most likely, copying our BDR ... But they stuck more silos, without thinking about whether they could all shoot them in a combat situation.
      But the Yankees already realized that with 24 mallets they got very excited, that's why they returned to 16 launchers in Colombia.

    Type 096 SSBNs are estimated to have a length of 150 m (type 094 - 140 m), a width of 20 m (094 - 12,5 m) and an underwater displacement of about 20 thousand tons, or at least 16 thousand tons ( 094 - 12,5 thousand tons). The boat has a double-hull design, two pressurized water reactors and two steam generating units, the maximum speed under water should be up to 32 knots. In addition, the use of high-strength materials can allow the boat to descend to a depth of 600 m. The submarine is equipped with modern soundproofing systems, which makes the boat quiet (the noise level can be as low as 95-100 dB - for the boat 094 - 115 dB). Thus, we can conclude that the PLA Navy has successfully completed the construction of a new type 096 SSBN.http: //www.lzmmil.cn

    How could they copy an American submarine.
    There are only two options.
    Either get the ship itself, or design documentation.
    And the external similarity is about nothing at all.

    Ohio has no "hump" from the word at all. The American military wants money and the American miracle yard. While we were dealing with the Russians here, the Chinese appeared like hell out of a snuffbox. I remember the scandal of how our Peter was given out for a cruiser of the US Navy. The US eerator is naive as a Nanai boy. I apologize for this word usage among the Nanai. They are more zombified than we are. fool

    Well, that everyone snapped up? A boat is like a boat, yes it is definitely worse than the rest, but we can say this is a real start in the real design of normal boats. They also started on airplanes, although they will still copy, steal ideas and lag behind, but not much.

    It's like the AK copied from the STG44, although the Mka was copied from it. And I consider the opinions of some users about the connection between the hydrodynamics of the body and the noise to be stupid. Aggregates inside the boat make noise. For amers, identification and detection is based on monitoring the noise frequencies of the internal equipment. The body has nothing to do with. Accordingly, the quality and method of fastening the equipment gives the boat noise. Well, the screw. But for a submarine missile carrier, a low quiet speed is exactly what is needed. His task is to quietly crawl around the patrol area and issue orders.

      When the low-noise speed of Seawulf and Bars differs 3 times not in our favor, then it is already necessary to look for the enemy at the level of the hull streamline noise.

      And the submarine missile carrier just needs all the best, and the best GAK, and high low-noise speed, and the best torpedoes and counter-torpedoes and simulators.
      A defenseless missile carrier in 99% of cases will never complete its main task.
      No matter how quiet it was, but from an active search, not a single sedentary, even the most quiet target - did not go away.
      He is categorically forbidden to be a stupid cow that cannot fight even a defensive battle with a hunter who can simply take and destroy a defenseless missile carrier.
      Therefore, Gadgets regularly train to hunt each other ...
      And Gadget is still the standard for low noise among SSBNs.

        He is an authority in submarine shipbuilding, but you, dear, well, how could I put it mildly ... just a "malley" on the VO website. yes
        That's the cognitive dissonance, though!
