China will begin construction of a "fourth-generation big rocket destroyer"

24

In the second quarter of 2015, China will begin construction of a "fourth-generation large rocket destroyer" Type 055, which will become the largest warship of this class in the world after the American stealth destroyer DDG-1000, mil.news.sina.com.cn. reported today.


The construction of ships of this series is planned in the framework of the 12 5th year plan and will demonstrate the highest level of Chinese technology in military surface shipbuilding. Ship's bookmark is somewhat behind schedule, currently finalizing the design of the 055 Type.

The ship’s total displacement is 12000 t, the destroyer is equipped with a domestic gas turbine power plant of the QC280 type, which will give it a “global cruising range”. On the ship will be based two helicopters. The destroyer is being developed taking into account the application of the most advanced technologies in the field of noise reduction, reduction of infrared and electromagnetic radiation, the highest ergonomic standards will be applied to facilitate crew service. The ship is equipped with a whole set of missile weapons - HHQ-9A ("Red Sea-9") and medium-range HHQ-16 ("Red Sea-16") long-range missiles, YJ-18 (Orel-18) and KR DH- 10 ("East China Sea-10", intended for striking ground targets).

CRC "Eagle-18" are a combination of subsonic and supersonic weapons (marching subsonic speed and supersonic at the last section), has an option with an electromagnetic warhead, which, having exploded in 50 meters from an enemy ship, disables 60% of its radio electronic equipment, which is equivalent to its destruction. It is also reported that the Type 055 uses the most advanced technologies of the previous generation Type 052D to the maximum.

    Oh, the Chinese are stirring up something. Too many "breakthrough" technologies and devices have appeared over the past year, don't you think?

      Here, if something is found, then "sources of leakage of important information ..."

      Maybe so. but as one of the ancients said, the main task of the army is not the ability to fight, but the ability to rattle menacingly at the right moment for politicians.
      Just here the Chinese know how to "rattle" perfectly.
      So, in fact, it’s actually not so important anymore, the main thing is that PR is done as it should. ))))

      Well, there are no breakthroughs! Just evolution is coming!

      That is, we are shoving Calm, Frigate-M and the clones of the Exocetos into a modern building, counted by common efforts - 052V, then change the Calm to C-300 (HHQ-9), and the Frigate to your 4 canvas system, finish the hull - we get 052S, we change the drum system HHQ-9, we replace the old canvases with our own new ones at 100%, we hide all the missile weapons in the VPU, we complete the CIUS - we get 052D.

      They just work and are ready to build, even if not outstanding ships, but constantly to finish them.

      The situation with 052D and 055 is identical with the situation of 051C and 052В / 052С. That is, on the one hand, they squeezed everything out of the 051 case, putting there C-300, the most new equipment, the Frigate-M2, the new gun, 730 MZA. On the other, based on the same solutions, but in a new, more promising building, they made 052В / С. And they did it in parallel.

        I'm not talking about that little. It’s not the first year that news has come that China has already mastered hypersound, is building aircraft carriers and destroyers, is building a 5th generation fighter plane, creating a long-range bomber, creating new ICBMs and more ... Moreover, there is no reliable data, photos of what are are dull. So the doubt creeps in, that the Chinese are simply inflating an elephant from a fly, because Wed (except for kung fu probably wink ) did not invent anything super modern.

          And you, my dear, did not think that it’s more than one year’s work. Build an aircraft carrier that has never been built, create a strategist that has never been released. I’m not talking about hypersound, over which we and the Sramers have been fighting for more than a year, and the practical results have not yet been seen, and you want the Chinese to op right away - and everything worked out. So no need to jerk. At least they develop and build, but everything is stolen and cut from us.

            I wasn’t even going to jerk.
            As you already said, two countries, with enormous technical potential and technologies, have been struggling with the problem of hypersound for ten years. And the Chinese here are OP, and made a rocket, and even a flying one! This does not happen. The Chinese cannot make an engine for their J-15s, they buy from us, and they praise that they are doing a 5th generation aircraft. And further in the same spirit.
            And you, my dear, did not think that it’s more than one year’s work.

            So, dear ... do not need sarcasm, I just assumed that this is all profanity, and blowing dust in the eyes.
            And about the cuts, you tell the Yanks how they lost 8.7 billion. dollars out of 9 allocated to literacy of Afghans. Moreover, the trained Afghans only learned what to write their name. Such a non-resident education ...

      They do not stir up, but purposefully rearm the fleet and the entire army, and set the pace so that the rest can only watch and keep statistics.

      Well, if they rip off, and do not think with their own heads, then why not !!! They have high-level espionage, they have developed !!! And the Americans complain that the Chinese stole their F-35 drawings !!!

    Type 055, which will become the largest combat surface ship of this class in the world after the American stealth destroyer DDG-1000,
    More and more "Chinese comrades" are rushing into the ocean ...
    But the American visa-a-vi looks more futuristic ... And our "united concern" can what answer?

      What have no analogues! What is the plus of the Chinese? They have low technical risk and safety net. That is - a lot of equipment has already been worked out or is being worked out at the time of the construction of the ship. Even if there is a story like with 052С, when 3 of the year brought the first pair to combat readiness, then there is always a safety net (then this is 051С, in this case it is 052D).

      We initially have an extremely large technical risk, and as a result we have big delays in construction, when node A is simply unprepared and because of this it is impossible to actually build a ship further. Large delays in completion, when the equipment is again not ready or requires refinement already on the ship. Big problems with testing, when it turns out that everything does not work as planned.

      However, we have no choice. For the failure in technology and development is large, and building ships of the Chabanenka level today makes no sense. Yes, and the same 11356 scolded, they say we spend money on an outdated ship.

          It is also interesting. Externally, it resembles Zamvolt, although the differences are dramatic in the placement of air-craft, guns, a smaller platform for helicopters and a superstructure. Maybe one of its concepts or earlier versions, maybe a closed project of the cruiser CGX, or maybe a Chinese variation on the topic of Amer’s zamvol.

    They steal from their country less and work for the good of all the powers. They do not want to be dependent on the Americans and their opinions, so they arm themselves to the teeth, if necessary, hard and biting, sobering click on the grin of the snickering west in the face of the United States ... Well done! The positive development trend of China’s defense industry is clearly on the face ...

    What can I say. Outrun. Here is the simplest evidence of the superiority of a planned economy over liberal Chubaisyatina.

    Another confirmation of the fact that China is building the vector of its development strictly to the south, towards "untouched" Australia.
    The fast pace of construction of corvette class ships is certainly a significant achievement of Chinese industry, but in order to really pretend to be something, destroyer class ships are needed. They can also become the basis for the protection of the Chinese AUG.
    However, so far these are just plans and there is no one to challenge American dominance in the Pacific Ocean. However, if the Chinese and with this project show enough zeal, then Washington’s fears may be realized in the near future.

    Well, here again, China ... I want to hear something about our fleet ... how is it that they are always ahead of us ... they probably have a different attitude to this topic, and the laws are tougher - they stole, immediately to the wall, and we don’t know everything, misled, etc ... here and read about the successes of others !!!

    Whatever they say about the Chinese. but they BUILD! Fast, cheap and cheerful. How much time did we need for the development of shipbuilding? years will be 250 commercials. England and the USA are also somewhere in this framework. In just a couple of decades, China has been developing good programs. Another 20 years will pass and they will have their own technologies. They went much faster that way that we are. But after all, Moscow was not immediately built.
    How many years have we been unable to finish building the unfortunate "Gorshkov"? Now we are using the developments of the Great Country, and we cannot even come one iota closer to the construction deadlines that were before the collapse. But at the same time, we are making fun of China.

    Sadly ...

    The destroyer is new, but the architecture is old !!!
    "windows" of the HEADLIGHTS antennas in the superstructure, like the amers ... to be located high above the horizon in the foremast like the British "Daring" is not destiny ???
    The Chinese, it seems, learned to steal ideas .... but just not the newest!

    And we have built RTOs for five years, and then they finish building up - is that normal?

      Well, we have new RTOs, with new weapons, electronics and more. What do the Chinese have, xs. There is a high probability that something is stolen and finished.
