Chinese airborne early warning aircraft demonstrate the ability to multi-day continuous patrols

24
Aircraft DRLO 76 special aviation regiment 26 air divisions in the region of the East China Sea were continuously patrolled in a given area around the clock for six days, according to reports from Chinese sources. According to them, “the first Chinese part on AWACS aircraft” has recently attracted increasing attention in connection with the introduction of the PRC air defense identification zone in the East China Sea. Chinese AWACS aircraft showed full readiness for combat duty, as well as the ability to directly control the actions of various types aviation and ground forces.

Over the past years, the Chinese have been working on various options for the use of DRLO aircraft, with at least once reported a continuous patrolling of more than 24 hours during exercises. For a long time, the Chinese practiced methods of transmitting data by such aircraft to troops. According to the well-known US PLA Air Force researcher Ken Allen, originally Chinese DRLO planes did not send commands directly to combat aircraft in the air, but instead contacted command posts of the respective destructive air regiments, which carried out control based on the data obtained. Subsequently, in 2012, there were reports of the first exercises with the use of DRLO aircraft for direct control of aircraft in the air. Probably, by now, such management has been fully developed.

    According to the photograph, the Chinese car is very similar to the Russian version of the AK RLDN variant, which India refused. Fixed mushroom with three antennas, simultaneously scanning at 120 degrees. The carrier is also very similar to Il76

      Do the Chinese have a lot of equipment similar to their "own" Chinese? winked We take A-50, unscrew it to the last bolt and microcircuit, copy it, and then assemble Chinese KJ-200 or KJ-2000 on Chinese bolts and microcircuits.
      Yes, scary, gloomy, but relatively flies and sees something there. Woo a la! wink

        At the 18th Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China Hu Jintao emphasized that the PRC would not "copy Western political systems." For the rest, he modestly kept silent ...

        Not true. They took the A-50, threw out all the electronic stuffing, set theirs (at first they wanted the Israeli one).

      This is IL-76 - the aircraft is called KJ-2000 and consists of the purchased IL-76MD with revision according to the project (radar - H / LJG-346 SAPARS, control and analysis complex in the cargo compartment and operator’s place).

    It is a pity that in Russia even daily duty on air is not practiced.
    Yes, and during my service in the GSVG "Bumblebees" did not often hang in the air.

    Well, in this case, the Chinese had to rest quite independently.
    Yes, our carrier and the main elements of the RTK are borrowed from foreigners.
    But they had to integrate everything into a single complex themselves.

    As for doubts, from the point of view of modern builders, many historical monuments in the same St. Petersburg, for example, Isaac, at one time was impossible to create. Technology did not allow. Probably aliens helped. smile

      Well, you know, this can hardly be called own invention. This is about the same as if I took a BMW and a Mercedes, and assembled one in a garage of two cars. For a long time, crookedly, not everything works or does not work as it should, but it looks familiar and even sometimes drives.
      I am not against borrowing, it’s quite normal and everybody does it. BUT ... If in the USSR Korolev created the R-7 based on FAA missiles, which is fundamentally different in design and this R-7 actually still flies ... The same goes for airplanes, tanks and more. Even their own computers were, yes, sorry, killed the industry on takeoff.
      What about the Chinese? They presented them with nuclear weapons - has it changed since then, no one knows, I think it’s unlikely. Aircraft - copies, ships - copies, cars - copies (well, we must admit that we suffer), copy rockets. Moreover, copies where NOTHING is significant changed !! So, dopilivanie good cars to such a state that there is nowhere to cut further.
      Technology did not allow. Probably aliens helped.

      The aliens also built the pyramids, and the Egyptians earn on them. wink

    The comparison is unsuccessful.
    Large systems, of the AK RLDN level, are not created according to the principle of the LEGO constructor.
    The main problem is the integration of individual elements into a single complex.
    When creating the A-50, both the carrier itself and most of the equipment were no longer new products. However, it turned out to be difficult to cook porridge from this.
    For comparison: only at the level of refinement and testing of gray A-50s, i.e. when the plane seems to be ready, the complexity was 6-7 times higher than on the IL-76.

      Why is this? Me and China are also different levels of technology and industry. I have a cordless drill and a welding machine, China has an industrial lathe and all the power of the industry.

    I wonder what kind of filling he has ... how far and what he can "see"

    In general, this is a clear signal to the Japanese, the United States and their cronies that China is no longer the same, you cannot indulge in it. Moreover, now it is possible to get from him specifically by the "tinsel"!

      Which, however, does not make China invulnerable. It is still very easy to plunge them into chaos and anarchy even with ordinary, non-nuclear weapons. "Two-thirds of China's population lives in a small part of its territory, in the lower reaches of the three main rivers. Several hundred million Chinese live in flooded areas, and in the event of a massive breakthrough of dams, entire Chinese provinces will disappear from the face of the earth. Agriculture will also disappear, all built on water regulation and the impossible without it, and the industry in these areas - and the industries needed for the simple physical survival of the population, such as food, will disappear.

    Why is that?

    Because I know how many cones I had to fill when creating the A-50.
    Because the Chinese had to stuff them themselves.
    They have a different complex.

    In general, in our current state, neglect of the Chinese is inappropriate.
    We are now more proud of the "Egyptian pyramids", which we can no longer fully build ourselves.

      Well, absolutely, I’ll fill up as many cones, crossing BMWs and Mercedess in the garage.

      I agree. But the fact remains. Only by copying technology, they will not surpass anyone. Unless in quantitative terms.

    And where did you get the idea that they only copy?
    Is it really necessary to distill someone?
    Strictly speaking, we, too, have never been an industrialized country with advanced technologies, nevertheless, we were able to create models of equipment with completely acceptable TTX, which proved to be quite worthy.
    Well, another question: Have you been to their industrial enterprises?

      Well, I did not see other, technologically advanced things from them, to be honest.
      Strictly speaking, we, too, have never been an industrialized country with advanced technologies.

      Oh really? Since the 16th century, Russia has been one of the leading industrial countries - some of which are guns. Only these were not factories, but monasteries and workshops. We are still leading the way in selected high-tech industries. Do you find a list of industries yourself?
      Have you been to their industrial enterprises?

      There was my boss, brought photos and personal observations. Not closed of course. Huge areas, entire quarters are devoted to one production. Thousands of people work. But we are talking about significant inventions and breakthroughs. Comparison of their quantity and quality, as it is not in favor of the Chinese.

    And I was myself. Only on new, compact, well-equipped. And most importantly, I saw the training of their young engineers. I assure you it is pretty decent. In addition, they are ambitious and the role of stupid copyists clearly does not suit them.

    The hopes for breakthroughs, significant inventions and the "intellectual elite" were lost.
    Empty slogans, the "Emeli on the stove" mentality.
    With whom are you going to realize your significant inventions and breakthroughs?
    With Goblin guest workers?
    Or for you the problem of qualified personnel is news?
