Super-maneuverable rocket tested in China

48
On the characteristics of the new air-to-air missile PL-10, recently tested in China, one of its developers told Defense Talk online edition.




“The ammunition, which is now being tested along with the prototype of the fifth-generation Chinese fighter J-20, is intended for close air combat. The length of the rocket is three meters, the mass of the order of 90 kilograms, the range 20 kilometers ", - cites the source Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

According to the interlocutor, “PL-10 is equipped with a multi-element infrared homing system with dazzle protection and is capable of hitting targets that are away from the aiming line. Data on missile guidance can be displayed in the helmet pilot indicator. "

According to the resource, “large steering wheels and the use of an engine with a controlled thrust vector indicate that the rocket will have very high maneuverability.”

It is reported that during the tests about 30 launches were made. The development of the rocket is conducted by the Luoyang Electron-optical Research Institute.

    What is it like? Why then do the wide-eyed engines put strangers on their papilos? or - scale - lack of mind?

      I’m afraid that when the distance is reduced to at least 100 km, with any of the existing 5th generation aircraft, the Chinese will have nothing to launch this missile with hi

        that when the distance is reduced to just a minimum of 100 km,


        So, melee will be gone? To the landfill of the gun, R-73, you do not need maneuverability and all kinds of high-voltage weapons with other tricks? Passed already in the 60s ... Super-irons with a wing load of 600 kg per square meter

        It is clearly written "intended for close air combat." Choosing the best from someone else's, copying and making themselves, rather than buying from your uncle? Well done, that's what all normal people have always done. And we including when we were normal.

          Simply, the people are mainly envious, because the Chinese do not stand still, but go forward by any means ... The Chinese have mercy on the Gorbachevs, Yeltsins, Chubais, Gaidar, Yakovlev, Berezovsky, Gusinsky, from cutting the fleet, strategic aviation, from deindustrialization, from shock therapy, from the destruction of education and healthcare and many, many more misfortunes !!! How BE was lucky for them ...... If the USSR in 25 years turned into a bunch of mendicant republics + the Russian Federation with a more or less economy, then China, being at the start of a poor, backward country, has grown its economy in 35 years according to various expert estimates of 30 up to 40 times, the economy continues to grow at a pace that many countries don’t even dream of !!! Like, they were lucky ..... But maybe it's not about luck, but in something else ??? Yes, and engaged in industrial espionage, engaged, will be engaged in all countries ... The American missile and nuclear programs implemented captive Germans !!!! The Americans in this case did not even steal the technical documentation, but the biological carriers of ideas !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            What are you talking about. China 300 years ago was a superpower. For the last century and a half, they have had such a restructuring that my mother does not grieve. And everyone has always been engaged in industrial espionage. Otherwise, gunpowder, paper money, silk and porcelain have been made only in China until now. The world would look cool, wouldn't it? "then China, being at the start of a poor, backward country." When that start was the Germans and the British had not yet come to Europe, In Europe there were no roads, no Rome, to which they all lead.

              Do not confuse! China, I will not argue, was a superpower, the first economy of the world for millennia ... until ... the Opium Wars, after which there were uprisings, revolutions, foreign interventions, civil wars in China for a century, resulting in chaos and devastation ... In Russia, the period of revolutions and civil war took how much? -Year 6-7 .... And what were the consequences ???

        And you name the fighting planes of America of the 5th generation at the present time. There is nothing besides F-22. And these unfinished airplanes, pilots have limited flight speed, since 1990 in the USA 195 airplanes have been manufactured. You ask yourself - why is it so negligible?
        F-22 is so expensive and capricious that America abandoned its use in Iraq and Afghanistan. And recently she stopped buying F-22 altogether.
        One of the developers of the F-22, Darrol Olsen, said that the Lockheed Martin corporation supplied the American army with F-22 Raptor fighters, the designs of which had flaws previously known to the developers. For example, stealth coating defects that were not fixed before the military began to deliver aircraft. Darrol Olsen said that poor-quality coatings can lead to dangerous incidents, as happened in 2008, when part of the cover came off the plane and hit the engine. This incident resulted in more than a million damage to the military. This limits flight speed.
        F-22 requires more than 30 hours of maintenance after each hour of flight. The cost of an hour of flight operation of a fighter is more than 44 thousand dollars. And still, these fighters break down so often that from October 2008 to May 2009, according to the Pentagon, about 50 percent of the aircraft in service with the Air Force were not ready for use due to technical problems.

        With whom the Chinese will fight - I just can’t imagine!

Now there is a good opportunity to get around the Anglo-Saxons, Amers and others like them in the issue of the serial SUCCESSFUL fighter of the 5th generation, both here and among the Chinese, while we are fiddling with F -35/22, trying to give birth to at least something normal. So why miss this chance?
          And the same story for PAK FA. Rather, bring to mind, go through the GSI and put into series.

            You are in your role, you are turning everything over. A SAG reader stated that all these Chinese missiles with a range of 20 km. will not even be launched from their planes, tk. will be destroyed by 5th generation aircraft from a distance of 100 km.
            I did not say that "China does not need to develop its own fighter and arsenal for it?"

            Add retirement age. And whoever doesn’t find a job in a civilian is a contracted army. laughing What's the use of it? After 60 people, as a rule, are no longer workers. For the ratio to be different, you need to give birth to children! And for this you need to implement a real policy of supporting families with children, and not just what is happening here - one empty chatter. This I declare as the head of a family in which there are four children. It's not about the liberals. What is the difference in what color a cat is, the main thing is that it catches mice.

And this large generation of old people should feed the small generation of working age! This is a purely demographic trap, almost all countries have fallen into it ... Robert Kiyasaki predicted it 5 years before the crisis of 2008! Moreover, he said that it would be a pension crisis at its core ... He also predicted that when the baby boomer retirees massively start selling their shares (their savings in shares), the collapse of Western stock exchanges will happen !!!

    With a declared range of 20 km - this is not a rocket at all, but a guided mine. In principle, a brick will fly 20 km, dropped from a great height at Mach = 2. Maybe a typo in the article, and meant 200 km.
    What to print the devil knows what, check the information (both numbers and letters), dear site administrators, and moderators - watch!)! Any fascist "Fau" flew more than 20 km, but no one shoved this information into "VO" as a super achievement.
    PS Of course, before neither "VO" existed, nor the Internet at all, but nevertheless this does not mean that there is no need to read and check the released text.

      Short-range air-to-air missiles (they are also melee) should not (and are not physically capable) fly 200 km. because their dimensions are small, the average length is 3 m, the diameter is 0,125 m., where is the fuel from there at 200 km?
      The domestic analogue of the RVV-MD also flies at 20km. and I’ll notice this a lot. Previously, short-range missiles (historically with infrared seeker) flew no more than 5 km. for they were intended for close combat, which took place at a distance of about 1 km., and a distance of 20 km. It was considered average, at such a distance our R-23 and American AIM-7 Sparrow worked.
