Chinese aircraft designer: next-generation carrier-based fighter will be presented before the end of the year

18

At the international air show in Zhuhai, China, journalists asked about when the new generation carrier-based fighter would be presented. We are talking about a combat aircraft, which should become the basis of the aircraft carrier's aviation wing, starting with Type 003. These are promising aircraft carriers of the PLA Navy, which differ from the versions available in the PRC in that their deck is flat (does not have a springboard).


The question was addressed to the chief designer of the J-15 carrier-based fighter, Sun Kong. Recall that the J-15 is a fighter that was actually created on the basis of the Soviet Su-33. At one time, the Chinese bought such an aircraft from Ukraine and studied its design in detail.

According to the Chinese designer, combat aviation, the carrier-based fighter of the new generation will be presented "before the end of the year." At the same time, he did not specify exactly when and within the framework of what event this will happen.

Chinese aircraft designer: next-generation carrier-based fighter will be presented before the end of the year


Experts note that the journalists asked the question, referring to the J-31 carrier-based fighter (fifth generation aircraft). It was planned that it will enter service with the PLA Navy in 2019. However, a number of problems (first of all, problems with engines) do not allow completing the complex of tests and, in general, determining the technological parameters of such a combat vehicle.

At the same time, Sung Kong refused to elaborate on the issues of a new-generation carrier-based fighter, recommending that reporters "wait a little bit to see everything with their own eyes."

Recall that the J-31 is the second 5th generation fighter being developed in China. A variant for the PLA Air Force - the J-20 fighter - is already entering service.

It is important for China to obtain a new generation carrier-based fighter in order to equip promising aircraft carriers with it, the first of which is already under construction. As noted, this is also important in terms of confrontation with the new anti-Chinese military bloc - AUKUS (Australia, Britain, USA).

      A UKUSum because sooner or later yes

      Unless, of course, the Americans are ready to play the game they have begun to put together a new one to the end, purely anti-Chinese block.

        So far, only the United States can bite out of the entire AUKUS block, while Great Britain will not rock the boat without a command from Washington, and Australia is generally about nothing as a military power.

        ... According to British media reports, the Royal Navy submarine Venjens conducted a training launch of the Trident strategic missile off the coast of Florida in June 2016. After the launch, an emergency situation occurred and the rocket lost its intended course, flying instead of a target into the sea towards the American coast. Fortunately for Florida residents, the missile did not carry a nuclear charge.

        What caused the malfunction is still unknown. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that Venjens carried out an underwater launch of Trident ...

        Although everyone knows that the UK can launch a Tradent ICBM only after agreement with the American military on board the British submarine, the United States controls the British arsenal of Trident ICBMs.

        Let us recall the old, international adage "As AUKUS gets lost, so the BRICS will get out"!

      The Chinese copied the Su-30SM, but they themselves said that the Hindu Su-30MKIs are bad. And if they are bad, then why copy it? Now they will buy a Ka-52K from us and after a while its exact Chinese copy will appear, which will also be exported.
      China's new fighter - J-16D.



      One of the most distinctive features of the J-16D over the original J-16 is its two large wing-mounted EW containers that will be used to disrupt operations and wreak havoc on hostile electronic equipment, including radar and communications systems. The aircraft has lost the infrared sensor installed in the front of the cockpit, since air combat is not its main task. The J-16D is also equipped with new avionics and domestically produced engines, has undergone significant structural changes, including the use of a large number of composite materials, said On Wednesday, Wang Yanan, editor-in-chief of Beijing-based Aerospace Knowledge magazine, Wang Yanan, to the Global Times.In real combat situations, electronic warfare aircraft can accompany other aircraft and provide them with electronic support, for example, conduct electronic jamming or deception, Wang said, noting that they also can directly interfere with the operation of enemy AWACS aircraft.
      Interestingly, the J-16 fighters are clones of the Russian Su-30 fighter. But they have a number of significant differences, mainly related to avionics and other equipment. The new aircraft is equipped with Chinese FWS-10 aircraft engines. As the Chinese themselves assure, their aircraft is superior in technical parameters to the Indian Su-30 MKI. But they admit that the Indian machine is more maneuverable in air combat, although this will not play any role, since the Chinese J-16 aircraft will be able to detect the Indian Su-30MKI before it enters the zone controlled by it, which allows them to gain some tactical advantage ...

      Also at the air show in Juhai will show other newest aircraft of the military-industrial complex of China.

      Combat trainer JL-10 (L-15), which is basically the same Yak-130

      They can look whatever you like, but without a reliable engine with a long resource for the J-31, you can forget about it as a deck for 003. But with the Hunfuz dviguns, there is a concrete plug. Even the applied layer of "non-stick" composite did not correct the situation. Fuel consumption increased, radius decreased and further along the chain ...
      So, it's time for the Chinese comrades to stop copying and pasting and start to INVENT "GUNPOWDER" again, otherwise there will be no luck.

    Yes, they will, they will make at least a concept. It seems to me: or there is already some groundwork_ "draft" Jay31 was not wasted; il already 'licked' somewhere.

      laughing If you were wrong, then only a little. The developer and builder of our aircraft carriers, Babich, left Ukraine for China.

        He didn't go anywhere
        The son of Soviet aircraft carrier designer Valery Babich denied his father's move to China to work at the local shipbuilding bureau. Gleb Babich wrote about this on his Facebook page. “I didn’t intend to, I didn’t think, and I didn’t even receive any offers,” Valery Babich’s son quoted.

        He added that the designer had never considered moving either to China or to any other country.

            There, according to the link, it is also written about this, and there is an assessment of the journalists who wrote it, it's just that the site rules prohibit completely copying articles in the comments.

    According to the Chinese designer of combat aviation, the carrier-based fighter of the new generation will be presented "by the end of the year." However, he did not specify which year. smile
