    China's largest destroyer technology beyond the United States for the first time: 055 ship ahead of the Western generation

    http://www.bestchinanews.com/Military/6593.html

    In April 26th after the China's first aircraft carrier in the domestic water, people will look to Chinese another milepost significance, even more important than 001A aircraft carrier ships, this is the 055 type frigate. Large destroyer advanced is of great significance for a country's national defense and the defense, many cases can even change the fortunes and influence the course of the war. After World War II, who acted as the role of soy sauce naval destroyers, began to fling, each ship has become the main naval power. At present, each military power has a particularly eye-catching family destroyer.

    After entering the new century, with the rapid growth of China's economy, China's dependence on the shipping channel is getting higher and higher. Increasing demand for critical maritime transport routes and overseas interests. The Chinese Navy needs to appear anywhere in the country's interests, that is to say, it is necessary to fight anywhere in the world. This means that the Navy should have a greater operational platform, a stronger maritime self-sustaining.

    China from type 052 destroyer ship launching in 1991, 26 years from the world shipbuilding technology behind the third echelon became a leader in the first echelon, which is not easy and bitter as can be imagined. Now, we finally have the ability and strength to build a 10000 ton destroyer. From the difficulty of integration of Naval Technology, to some extent, the construction of the destroyer is more difficult than the aircraft carrier. China and the United States are the only countries that are able to rely solely on their own industrial systems for the construction of large, 10000 ton phased array radars.



    In 2014, next to the ground test for carrier scheduling and island electromagnetic environment compatibility test of Wuhan aircraft carrier building, built a ship superstructure, the ship's superstructure is obviously not the construction of large type 052D, via satellite photo interpretation, the ship length and width are far more than at present all our active appearance models, 055 the destroyer of the first show in the world.

    The summer of 2016, Jiangnan Shipyard, a large warship segment exposure, this section of the width is significantly greater than the type 052D destroyer, the ship was broken has shown her identity, type 055 frigate which is navy long-awaited. With the speed of construction is beyond imagination. The displacement of 7000 tons of 052D type berth period is 9 months, while the type 055 frigate for more than 10000 tons, although its construction period is longer than the 052D type, the berth cycle should be in about a year, launched in 2017 is not a problem.

    [​IMG]

    The day before the user photographs show that integrated mast type 055 destroyer is being built has been installed, the distance water time is not too far away.......

    At the same time Jiangnan plant second ships also built 055. At present, the Dalian shipyard is simultaneously building a 055 type destroyer, the progress is not much slower than the Jiangnan plant, is expected to be launched by the end of this year or early next year, the Chinese Navy's urgent need for this type of destroyer.

    Type 055 destroyer ship's captain 183 meters, 22 meters wide, 166 meters long waterline waterline, 20 meters wide, 7 meters draft loaded square coefficient of 0.55, with a displacement of up to 12800 tons, compared with 052D, the maximum displacement of only 7200 tons. In accordance with the provisions of China's navy, although the 055 displacement has more than 10 thousand tons, but still belongs to the destroyer sequence. The destroyer's first order was 8, priced at more than $5 billion.

    Type 055 missile destroyer ship is the core of future China naval fleet, after the completion of the 055 will be the most powerful fighting forces in the world of the destroyer, don't get me wrong, this is not Chinese boasting, but the Navy's assessment conclusion. Evaluation on type 055 from the U.S. Naval Intelligence Bureau, the Bureau issued a regular Chinese naval military report, the latest report of a detailed analysis of 055 Chinese Navy warships, the report said Chinese 055 class destroyer beyond Ali Burke III of America's new Zumwalt class destroyer and construction plan the destroyer, to become the world's most advanced air defense ship.

    U.S. military believes that China's type 055 destroyer has a faster speed, higher endurance, longer self-sustaining force and good global airworthiness. The ship type is used to reduce the electromagnetic characteristics, infrared characteristics and noise characteristics of stealth design, and has a good living and living conditions for the crew. The ship has a strong ability to operate a single ship, with far, medium and nearly three layers of hard and soft weapons early warning network and attack firepower. With air defense, anti submarine, anti-ship and land attack capabilities, with a comprehensive three-dimensional group refers to the ability. The use of full combustion power, double shaft, double pitch propeller, power system using 4 domestic QC280 type gas turbine improved, the maximum speed of about 32. The installation of 112 units of the general vertical launch system can be integrated with nearly all types of air defense missiles, anti submarine missiles, cruise missiles. A new type of medium range air defense missile will achieve a unit of 4 equipped with the way, carrying capacity increased significantly. 055 stern set up two large hangar, can be equipped with a new generation of 2 anti submarine aircraft, anti submarine capabilities greatly increased.

    055. The biggest feature is the integrated RF system, the integration of the antenna, the main mast integrates various types of radar antenna and detector, this technology represents our country and even the world of shipborne radar electronic equipment to the highest level, is the world's first one by the technology of naval ships. The success of this system will further consolidate China's maritime warning, combat core competence, of great significance, is worthy of the name "sea powers".

    The traditional mast of naval ships is full of radar, electronic warfare, communications, IFF, data link, information distribution and other equipment, which is more and more messy. The integrated mast can integrate the clutter antenna, at the same time, it can greatly reduce the detectable signal and improve the stealth ability. This is also the development trend of World Naval ships.

    The British type 45 destroyer, India Calcutta class destroyers are also using the integrated mast, many European powers in the study of Shipborne integrated RF system, and is equipped with a lot of "shape" of the integration of the mast, but they are more or less in the key system lacking, God does not like the shape.

    In April 29th Chinese Dianke 14 official reports show that delivery of the system has entered the final sprint stage test. The integrated mast and universal integrated antenna are equipped with a variety of data link systems such as JIDS system, integrated data link system and broadband high-speed data transmission system. To realize the integration of radar, radar, electronic warfare, information integration and communication system in one, and for the first time the ship battle electronic equipment through the embedded open system to form a multi sensor fusion of organic whole, operational efficiency is greatly improved, creating a ship electronic equipment by independent combat system to combat.

    [​IMG]

    Type 055 destroyers are the most advanced and powerful electronic radar system in the world. In November 21, 2016, Chinese Dianke group fourteenth Institute of foreign propaganda platform are reported the production of a shipborne radar equipment for detailed arrangements. Also disclosed the shipborne radar equipment is one of China's new generation of destroyers of the core subsystem, will greatly enhance the Chinese next-generation destroyer combat capability, to change the meaning of the Chinese Navy from light blue to dark blue, the radar also known affectionately as "star of the sea".

    [​IMG]

    Picture: a study of Wuhan ship surfaced in 2014 055 of the destroyer land model, the 1:1 scale model for electromagnetic compatibility testing of ship superstructure, masts and bridge around the comprehensive central will install a dual band active phased array radar.

    [​IMG]

    The 055 destroyer project began in December 2009, this time to the end of 2014 officially started, Dianke 14 synchronization to complete the development of a new generation of Shipborne Phased Array radar. According to military experts explained that the combat system type 055 destroyer with information fusion ability of high degree of automation, can be greatly improved, information systems and other forces, such as air force AWACS and strategic security forces satellite to realize information fusion, this represents a fly.

    [​IMG]

    China's large-scale Shipborne Phased array radar are produced by Dianke 14 R & D, for example 052C\/D destroyers above 346\/346A phased array radar. In 1984, Chinese naval delegation's first visit to the United States, the delegation of the United States at the time of the most advanced equipment of the Te Kant Roca missile cruiser on four phased array radar and missile vertical launching system is not as good as people envy, feel helpless. Then the drafting of the report by Navy high-level attention, after five years of naval shipboard radar seminar held in Nanjing, the meeting proposed the independent development of Shipborne active phased array radar, created after the internationally renowned "star of the sea".

    The beginning of 1990, the whole radar system started from the itemized research unit, after eleven years of development, in December 2001, 346 radar flight test in the test base of Huludao Naval Weapons Test, and the Red Sea 9 missile weapon system supporting the running, 10 times in a row to saturation attack test, all successfully intercepted, to 2002 successfully developed.

    In 2003 346, the assembly has just launched the 052C radar guided missile destroyer ship of Lanzhou no.. This Chinese has become the world's third large-scale Shipborne Phased Array multifunction radar of the country, the U.S. Office of naval intelligence assessment that the radar is Chinese real innovation development of phased array radar, marking the first Chinese shipboard phased array radar has reached the international advanced level.

    [​IMG]

    Then China began development of a new model of 346A radar, phased array shape of the new type reaching square, shell plate structure, and the area is larger, the new phased array in June 2012 first exposure in the number in the comprehensive test ship, new radar canceled the past 346 type gas cooled system arc cover, using liquid cooling structure. Although the official did not disclose the specific properties of China 346A radar, but according to the Zhuhai airshow China Dianke group experts revealed that the performance of the 346A radar, regardless of the detection distance, fire channel, interception or accuracy, anti-interference ability and so on, AN\/SPY-1D is far more than the U.S. aegis radar service.

    According to the relevant military experts, 055 large missile destroyer equipped with an active phased array radar for the 346B type, is an improved type of 052D destroyer radar on the 346A. 055 destroyers of the integrated mast also has a small phased array radar, with two different bands of active phased array radar system, constitute the DBR (dual band radar). Dual band system from a wide area search radar (VSR) is responsible for long-range search, by multi function radar (MFR) is responsible for identifying and tracking precision weapon fire control, the two complement each other, complement each other, meet all functions of radar ship needs, including the air sea search, early warning, air and missile defense, close in defense of operations on the sea.

    This is the world's most cutting-edge technology of shipborne radar at present, can provide both mass and ability to lead long distance target detection and missiles, leading the world's major powers generation, leading Japan more than and 10 years of technical level, this is a brilliant crystal China Naval Technology development.

    The United States in the research and development of DDG1000, when the Walter class destroyer, the beginning of the plan is also equipped with dual band radar. Because the S band passive phased array radar SPY-1 belongs to focus on long-distance intercepted aegis missile terminal guidance, lack of ability, need special collocation illumination radar. Therefore, the United States decided to use a dual band system in the new generation of shipborne radar, according to plan CVN-78 Ford aircraft carrier and Burke III destroyers will be equipped with DBR dual band radar.

    In order to save $20 million in June 2010, the U.S. Department of defense decided to cancel the DDG1000 destroyer VSR radar system, only to retain the MFR radar. Such an important radar is cancelled, don't say the dual band, DDG1000 destroyer can be counted as a "Aegis", has become a very controversial.

    [​IMG]

    Zumwalt class of maritime targets strike capability is not outstanding, in the face of the warship equipped with anti-ship missiles and submarines, the ship has no advantage at all, on the Chinese naval surface and submarine threats are not great. Positioning Zumwalt class is the result of the strategy by the sea, in the absence of symmetric adversary, Zumwalt class 155 mm gun on land to strike, the gun has a range of 150 nautical miles, bully the small OK, but there is a complete radar warning system for Chinese opponent, zhumuwoerte close to the land only beaten a.

    Don't be so China audience DDG1000 fantastic appearance scared, which was a few months ago in the Panama Canal coastal warships, really advanced, operational capability is quite powerful, but its air defense capabilities may be less than 055 Chinese large destroyer.

    [​IMG]

    Next to China 055 destroyers and a new radar competition is the United States plans for the development of the Ali Burke III destroyer, the ship will install AN\/SPY-6 (V) dual band active phased array radar system, its search capability is currently installed in the Burke type IIA on AN\/SPY-1 radar 30 times. The United States Burke III destroyer loaded with dual band radar in 2016 before the budget, from the start to the construction of the service to the water at least three years, the development of China's time after the destroyer of 055.

    [​IMG]

    Therefore, in the dual band phased array radar and universal common vertical launch system equipped with integrated RF technology, the 055 destroyer launched in 2019 this year or early next year, before entering the Navy, China will become the first to have a dual band phased array DBR large destroyer of the country in the world, while the United States Ali Burke III will have to wait two years to launch DDG1000, zhumuwoerte, don't look at other dream, it is not the air defense destroyer is a big problem. As for the Japanese ships aegis, without the United States they are not what. This means that China in the field of large air defense destroyers beyond the U.S. Navy, which is the second time the United States Navy in the back to catch up with the Chinese, this is a historic great progress.

    055 destroyer cost is estimated to 5 billion to 6 billion yuan.

    the Shanghai Jiangnan Changxing Shipyard is building No. 2 ship and No. 3 ship. Dalian Shipyard is still building No. 4 ship. Chinese sources said the type 055 has 12 warships. The Navy will receive No. 1 ship in early 2018.

    yes, you should certainly be proud. despite what anyone may say, Im very impressed with two things about China- (I) Their rapid strides in defence production capabilities and (ii) their Infrastructure construction capabilities.

    It always boggles the mind as to why doesn't India solve its issues with China and partner with them. An India China axis would literally F**K the world. I guess the colonial hangover will take another century to go.
