 Chinas air force -6K take-off and landing of South Island Reef can cruise around Malacca Strait


If our air force long-range bombers can carry missiles to cruise the Malacca Straits, the significance will be very significant. The Malacca Straits are the main roads leading to the South China Sea and have great economic and military significance. If we can cruise the Malacca Straits, then the surrounding areas will also be in our deterrence. We can not do it, but we can tell the world that we have this ability. Lan Shunzheng, a military researcher, told ScienceDaily.

Statistics show that the Malacca Straits are one of the busiest Straits in the world, and are important international watercourses both economically and militarily. The oil tankers entering the South China Sea through the Malacca Strait are 3 times as many times as the Suez canal and 5 times as much as the Panama Canal, and most of the oil imports from the mainland of China will pass through the Malacca Strait. The Strait of Malacca is the most important energy transportation channel for China, Japan and Korea. It is known as the lifeline of the sea. Once conflict occurs, the Malacca Straits will become a battleground for the military.

Wang Mingliang, a military expert, told the media that the bombers were trained in the southern waters of the islands and reefs, helping to improve the ability to combat all kinds of security threats at sea, and to temper the ability to prepare for war.

The aforementioned article believes that when Chinas sea and air forces have the necessary number of heavy tankers on the basis of the -20 transport aircraft, they may be more willing to use these airports on the islands of the gas dispenser.

The general estimate is that the standard -6K range is 6000 km, and if it is modified, the network transmission can reach 8000 km. If it is only cruising around the Malacca Straits, it will be no problem to take off from the airport of the South China Sea Islands and reefs. But if you need to stay in the surrounding area for a long time, you still need the help of the tanker. This will greatly enhance the cruising and operational effectiveness of -6K. Lan Shunzheng said.

Then, what special requirements do the airports on the South China Sea Reef have on fighter performance? What are the difficulties in technical support?

Lan Shunzheng introduced, the marine equipment and land equipment are very different, the most basic point, in order to adapt to the marine environment, the marine equipment must be equipped with waterproof, moisture-proof, salt fog and other capabilities. The South China Sea area is under the environment of high temperature, high humidity and high salt for a long time. This requires the aircraft body structure, power system, electronic equipment and so on to have certain corrosion resistance, otherwise it will greatly reduce the service life. Therefore, if we want to deploy -6K and other aircraft on the South Sea reefs, or to take off and drop frequently at the island reef airport, it is necessary to redesign and improve the related equipment. Of course, our country has many experiences in this respect for reference. At the same time, it has higher requirements for hangar construction on the South China sea reef airport, such as typhoon prevention capability. In addition, if a stealth fighter is to be deployed in the future, there will be a special thermostat hangar, which is beneficial to the maintenance of a stealth fighter for a long time, and can protect the expensive surface of the stealth coating from being eroded. He said. The reporter understands that the maintenance of the stealth coating of the B-2 stealth bomber needs to be carried out at a constant temperature, which is extremely demanding for the environment. The US army deployed the environment control hangar in Guam, known as the B-2 mask system (B2SS) or the super large deployable aircraft library system (XLDAHS), which can withstand a high wind of up to 177 km / h.
