China is developing an "anti-avian" BR DF-26 with a hypersonic warhead

22



"Military Parity" from 01.02.2014 reports: In the US magazine “Aviation Technology and Space Weekly” from 27 January (corrected by VO editors, Aviation Week & Space Technology - January, 27, 2014) An article titled "The US Navy views the Chinese hypersonic apparatus as a major military threat from China" has been published. Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements with reference to huanqiu.com.

The US Navy believes that the 9 held January by China hypersonic test with speed 10M reflect China's preparation for a future war. After China masters this technology, it will have weapon, which will overcome all existing missile defense systems and increase the range of its ballistic missiles. It will take several years to work out the complex issues of control systems and to set up the release of weapons of high-precision strike.

The article says that testing of this hypersonic device eloquently confirms the fact of China's further work on the creation of anti-ship ballistic missiles. And, probably, indicate the imminent appearance of the next generation of Chinese anti-ship missiles. According to US military expert on China Richard Fisher, this is a DF-26 rocket, which may be equipped with a hypersonic warhead and will have a range increased to 3000 km, rather than a DF-21 with a range of 2000 km. If China equips the DF-31 MBR with the same warhead, then its range may increase from 8000 to 12000 km.

The article states that the United States must deploy work in the field of creating weapons based on new physical principles, such as directed energy flow, to counter such missiles, since the existing anti-missile defense systems cannot intercept missiles at speeds above 5M.

The article in “Aviation Technology and Space Weekly” by the authors Bradley Perrett, Bill Sweetman and Michael Fabey is more extensive and tells about significant and serious things.


For example, in the article it is believed that the DF-21 ballistic anti-ship missile (BKPR), possibly close to adoption, is less dangerous than a DF-26 with hypersonic BB. The authors believe that the BFCR DF-21, created on the basis of the RSD, flies along a ballistic trajectory at a speed of less than 5 thousands of meters per second and for intercepting it on the AUG there are means such as anti-missiles SM-3.

We are in our discussions on the page "Military Review" have repeatedly pointed out that the trajectory of the flight of such missiles is quasi-ballistic, since the head part on the highway is actively maneuvering, looking for a target and aiming at it. Therefore, in order to intercept such targets, it is necessary to have time to detect them in a very limited time reserve, to track the changing parameters of a nonballistic trajectory with high accuracy, to accurately calculate the start time and the interceptor missile intercept route. At the same time, the energy resources and reserves of the interceptor maneuver may not be enough to test the "calculation errors" and the resulting values ​​of the "slip" values.

In addition, the use of a set of means to overcome (PCB) in the form of "false targets" and EW repeatedly and significantly complicate the task of interception, making it almost impossible ...

China is developing an "anti-avian" BR DF-26 with a hypersonic warhead

The article focuses on the complexity of interception due to the late detection of a hypersonic attack device such as DF-26. It is concluded that the interception of such aircraft, having a speed in the detection of 5 and more mach, is currently impossible due to the lack of weapon systems. Although the hypersonic device itself (the head of the DF-26 rocket) does not stand out in any particular way: the warhead maneuvering in the high atmosphere layers. Probably outputted to the target by the so-called quasi-styled high-energy-intensive trajectory. From here and later, the detection by radar means: the usual head of the RSD at launch can gain altitude in 500 or more kilometers, quasi-styling - near 200.

It is necessary in this connection to recall that all the new and currently developed Russian long-range missiles - the Bulava-30, Topol-M, Yars-24, Rubezh, Sarmat and even operational - Iskander ", - have a multidisciplinary trajectory for the elimination of head parts, including quasi-styling.

Much of the material in the journal echoes the information previously provided in the "VO" article by Oleg Kaptsov.Chinese penalty. Anti-ship ballistic missile "Dongfeng-21D" "In particular, about the possible use of the UBB (guided combat unit) ideas embodied in the Pershing 21 RSD in the design of the BFSR DF-2. Discusses and problems that need to be solved on the way to the creation of BCRC:
- questions of target designation, its accuracy, speed of reaction;
- the need for special structural materials when creating hypersonic devices ...

There are a lot of skepticism. Nevertheless, a conclusion can be made: competent specialists and officials in the United States closely follow the theme of creating long-range BCRCs, seeing in them a fatal danger to AUG in the near future.

The article also hints at the possible cooperation of Chinese and Russian specialists in solving the problems of creating ballistic anti-ship long-range anti-ship missiles and space-based means of detection and pre-targeting, including due to the similarity of the programs for creating components of these means.

        China is trying in this way to solve the main problem for itself: to level the superiority of the Yankees at sea, depriving them of the main strike force in the face of the AVU. In any case, the adoption of the Bpkr will seriously complicate the life of the US Navy.
        However, tangerines should think about what they will do with the Yuserovsky PLA PLA. After all, they are carrying a CRBD, and the Chinese fleet can be very upsetting, and disrupting the landing of troops in Taiwan ... The main thing is that the false start does not work, otherwise you will again have to act as peacekeepers, saving the Chinese asses and your capital investments.

          China has never attacked anyone in its history and is not going to attack. Their strategy is wiser - a quiet conquest of more and more new positions ... But China is arming itself not in vain, because everyone knows that the Indians spend more than ALL TOGETHER IN THE WORLD TOGETHER TAKEN (!). Only a desperate idiot like Gorbachev in such a situation can not think about defense and the development of defensive weapons ...

    American "coffin trucks" are weapons that are today intended for brown people (to scare to bomb). Yes, undoubtedly this is a serious force in the ocean, but hr.n knows how events will develop in the context of a global nuclear war (it is possible that theirs auges will even turn out to be useless). After all, the same chinoids, if they fire a piece of warheads at pi.dos, are unlikely to catch everything.

    It is necessary to discount the efforts of the United States to create unsinkable aircraft carrier groups !!! Therefore, China is going its own way here, we are our own !!! Here our goals are similar and the first results are already visible !!! A little more and these floating groups will represent weapons for fighting only third world countries! Then many billions of dollars will be thrown to the wind, because America on the water will no longer feel safe, which means that the goal of destroying the aircraft carrier group will be achieved by asymmetric and much cheaper means! Success to our designers !!!

      I agree! But you can’t imagine how difficult it is to do without the use of SBP.
      KSHVI: "The defeat of the enemy's AMG in the conditions ...". Everything seems to have been counted, but an intermediary comes up and declares: "The enemy destroyed XX, disabled the control unit, and suppressed the SCU by means of electronic warfare." And you understand that the forces of the fleet are not enough to complete the task, you need to turn to the Supreme Command for help.
      Why am I? And to the fact that the adversary will maintain a database to ensure b / stability AMG, in the interest of fulfilling its tasks. Surely it will deliver preemptive strikes against the installations of the BKR, the forces of the fleet in the bases, on the routes of deployment, airfields, etc. Therefore, it is impossible to rely only on the BPRK or the SSR. A fleet operation is a multi-dimensional, multi-step "game" with a bunch of ever-changing variables. And, as a rule, with a decrease in the used potential of the outfit of your forces. Therefore, I believe that the Americans will not allow the Mandarins to shoot at their ABU BRs with maneuvering homing BBs, remaining out of reach of aviation from Yapo-vov, Toporov from PLA and NK, etc.
      That is why the PRC was puzzled by the construction of new aircraft carriers, the construction of a submarine fleet, new NK - carriers of the Kyrgyz Republic, and the search for an antidote against AMG. And all for the sake of the US not getting into their showdown in the Asia-Pacific region because of the fear of unacceptable losses. IMHO.

      But no one specifies which engine is on their warhead. Maybe it's a rocket engine, not a scramjet. Then the main problems are the control system and the warhead shell heating

        in the course of such an apparatus there are no power plants, only control elements for integral planning.

    China is preparing hard for a war with us! With America / Japan, they only ponte. They flirt with us. Till. They study us, our combat capabilities, our tactics and strategy, our weapons, buying it (or through espionage), copying / propagating / cloning and testing it. They climbed into Ukraine already and seriously ... In reality, the Chinese are preparing precisely for military operations with Russia! This is a very cunning, insidious, ruthless nation. They do everything (including kill) with a smile on their faces, only they don’t have it from the heart, they have an anatomical one. And at the same time it helps to hide emotions. This is a completely alien civilization! With your goals and objectives. This must be understood!

    tasks of creating ballistic anti-ship long-range missiles and spaceborne detection and preliminary target designation

    Here from our side, from the open part:
    Russian scientists and engineers are ready to create ultra-high precision weapons comparable in efficiency to nuclear weapons, said Georgy Rykovanov, Academic Director of the Russian Federal Nuclear Center at the All-Russian Research Institute of Technical Physics, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

    “High-precision weapons have existed for a long time,” said the academician, ITAR-TASS reports.

    He recalled that systems had been created quite a long time ago, where special characteristics of the target were used for targeting - increased brightness in the radar range (electromagnetic wavelength from 1 to 10 cm), target illumination by laser radiation and subsequent capture of the reflected signal by the homing head, etc. .

    “Now a more ambitious task is being set,” Rykovanov emphasized, “the defeat of any given point target at a distance significantly exceeding 100 km. Previously, due to the low accuracy of the delivery of ammunition, it was necessary to use nuclear weapons to hit a target at such distances. ” The atomic bomb now has alternatives.

    “Suppose we achieved a miss less than 10 meters. In such cases, the target may be disabled by a conventional explosive at the expense of hitting the most vulnerable or important part of it. In this sense, high-precision weapons are approaching nuclear efficiency, ”said academician Rykovanov.
    “I can reassure,” the scientist continued, “we have all the necessary technologies: developed inertial navigation systems, control systems and global positioning (GLONASS), production of microelectronics with a sufficient degree of integration to solve this problem. Most importantly, there are specialists who can solve the tasks. ”
