Reference News Network reported in August 7th: according to Japans the news of production on July 31 daily, the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense teams latest launching ceremony of the Aegis warship was held in Yokohama in July 30th. The ship was named Mayer and is expected to serve in March 2020. The biggest selling point of the ship is cooperative combat. CEC system. The Aegis is a superpower that symbolizes a countrys military strength, said Takeo Ikeda, a former commander of the Sea Self-Defense Fleet. Deterrence and application are immeasurable. What is the combat capability of the Mayer? Is it as strong as the propaganda? What is the help of the Japanese sea? This article is a brief analysis of it for you.
World War II, Japan was re visited by the US submarine.
The latest Japanese destroyer, Mayer (fender 179), is the seventh Aegis warship of the Japanese sea, whose name is actually inherited from the Japanese Navys Kaohsiung class cruiser No. 3, Mayer, as well as the name of the 6 aegis warship, with a strong army. The revival of nationalism means that. The first 4 frigates of the earliest service were the name of the 3 Ship Miao Gao (the World War II), the No. 4 ship the bird sea (the Kaohsiung grade cruiser 4), and the other 2 of the ships name (Jin Kong and fog island). After the 2 cramps (also known as Jin Gang) destroyers, the name of the ship inherits the adage No. 2 of the self - high male - level cruiser, and the foot handle.
The name of the World War II Morgan came from Mt. moye, Japanese Hyogo County, which belongs to the Kaohsiung level (the name of the first ship is from the Kaohsiung mountains near Kyoto, not related to Kaohsiung in Taiwan). It is the final treaty type heavy Patrol built by Japan before World War II (the tonnage and Shipborne Fire is restricted by the Washington Navy Treaty), Japan. It is called the strongest treaty heavy Patrol. The maye weighs 203.7 meters long, full load 12 thousand and 700 tons, maximum speed 35 knots, firepower includes 4 double (8 doors) 50 times 203 millimeter main gun, 6 double double 127 millimeter antiaircraft artillery, 4 quadruple quadruple 610 mm torpedo tube and so on. Under the impact of the economic crisis that began in the late 1920s, the Kawasaki Kobe shipyard, which was responsible for construction, was almost bankrupt and forced to work under the intervention of the Japanese Navy. The main gun fire of the Mayer after completion was actually weaker than the other 3 sister ships (all equipped with 10 203 millimeter main guns), but increased accordingly. The air defense capability is at the advanced level in the world at that time in terms of overall operational performance.
The Mayer was commissioned in June 1932 and joined the Japanese invasion of Hainan Island, China in July 1937. After the outbreak of the Pacific War, it participated in a series of Japanese invasion of Malaysia, Philippines, Guadalcanal, Aleutian Islands, Marian and other battles. In October 1944, the Mayer took part in the battle of Wright bay with 3 other sister ships. In October 23rd, the Japanese fleet was found in Palawan waters by a U. S. Navy submarine. The maye was misidentified by the American minnows submarine as a battleship. It was hit by 4 torpedoes through the Palawan waterway and sank within 8 minutes, ending his evil life.
Todays Mayer destroyer inherits the name of the ship. I am afraid it will not touch the light of our predecessors. Sure enough, the bow-mounted balls did not open smoothly at the launching ceremony on July 30, which was no good sign. Mayer missile destroyer 170 meters long, 8200 tons of standard drainage (full load of water will exceed 11 thousand tons), although the size of the predecessors is not the same, but the combat capability has already been in the past. In addition to a 127 millimeter naval gun and a 96 unit vertical missile system, the ship will carry the Aegis baseline J7 combat system (equivalent to the US Armys Aegis baseline 9 system, with marine anti missile capability) and the AN/SPQ-9B radar system produced by Northrop Grumman, which can be used in a strong electronic jamming environment. The target of high speed anti-ship missile at low altitude is found and tracked.
The new ship can make use of the AWACS to break the mountain to fight the cow CEC system into a power multiplier.
According to the news of production, Ikeda Tokushiro, who served as the commander of the Japan Sea self escort fleet, said: CEC is a network fire control system that can be intercepted, even if the ships radar fails to detect it, so long as the friendly other (ship or airborne) radar detects the target. This is the goal that the sea has been trying to achieve for many years. Mark . He added: this system can share the combat intelligence of a number of aegis warships at the same time compared with the ability to rely solely on a single warship, and more capable of intercepting time for (antimissile or air defense).
The CEC system is a network operational command and control communication system developed by the United States Navy in 1987 on the basis of C3I (command, control, communication and intelligence) command automation technology system to strengthen the Naval Air Defense (anti missile) operational capability. Its biggest feature is that it can use the network. Collaterals, the radar, fire control system, weapon system and warship early-warning aircraft in a carrier strike group are connected with the warship early warning machine (including the stealth fighter, unmanned aerial vehicle, high altitude surveillance airship, etc.) to realize the real-time operational information sharing, so that every warship can grasp the battlefield situation and the enemys target trend.
With regard to the effectiveness of the CEC system, the US Navy has developed a battle system known as Navy integrated fire control air defense (NIFC-CA) on the basis of the CEC system as the backbone of the anti regional rejection / intervention (A2D) capability in recent years, and has carried out a test. In September 12, 2016, the United States Navy and Lockheed Martin conducted a joint experiment with the first successful use of a radar ground station to send a F-35 stealth fighter to a naval Aegis system through the enemy target data transmitted by the multi-functional data chain (MADL), after which the data was obtained. The launch of a standard 6 ship to air missile will destroy the simulated target.
Even the powerful and powerful radar, whether land based or shipboard, will be affected by the curvature of the earth and can not detect the target on the other side of the horizon. In addition, these 2 types of radar are also vulnerable to objective factors such as terrain and sea clutter. But the Aegis warship like the Mayer is equipped with the CEC system, and the SPY-1 series phased array radar equipped by its ship Aegis system can receive the target data from the air E-2D advanced eagle eye early-warning machine, launch the standard 6 long range ship to air missile, and combat the range of the carrier radar detection range. Single or multiple targets to achieve the effect of separate mountains and cattle. Japan has ordered four E-2D early warning aircraft, which are expected to be delivered in 2020.
From the above performance indicators, it is not difficult to see that the sea air defense and anti missile capability of the sea of Japan will undoubtedly increase significantly after the service of the Mayer and the other ship (eighth aegis battleships) being built. Especially through the CEC system, the Japanese warship will also be able to fight with US Navy warships and early warning aircraft in the future. Although the sea now claims to be equipped with only the CEC system on the 2 warships, it does not exclude the possibility of being equipped with a CEC system on the other 6 aegis ships and other warships after the trial. Using the power multiplier of CEC, the Japanese sea will, to a certain extent, weaken the saturated attack deterrent capability of Chinas anti ship ballistic missiles and cruise missiles, which is worthy of high attention.
