Chinas second aircraft carrier 002 is about to start the sea trial, and it is not far off to complete the construction and delivery to the Navy. Compared with the first aircraft carrier, Liaoning, the type 002 carrier is sure to improve in performance. What improvements have been made in the 002 type carrier, where is it stronger than the Liaoning? In terms of size, although the exact data of the 002 type carrier has not yet been published, the information revealed at the present time is basically sure, the length of the warship, the amount of drainage and the quantity of the Liaoning are almost the same, but at most, a slight increase. In the power, the use of the Liaoning as the same conventional power mode; carrier aircraft takeoff, but also followed the Liaoning skid takeoff way, so the rough looks, many people think that the 002 aircraft carrier is the Liaoning domestically made reprint. This is only half that. The predecessor of the Liaoning was the former Soviet Varyag. China had completed about 70% of the hull construction when China bought it. The follow-up was that the Chinese navy was refitted and built on the basis of its own needs in the original Varyag. Therefore, the Liaoning is a semi domestic carrier, and the 002 type is from the first cut of the steel plate, until the completion of the whole process, the whole process of Chinas own construction, is pure domestically. Therefore, the Liaoning is Chinas navy to achieve the breakthrough of zero aircraft carrier. In the construction of the Liaoning, China actually only built the latter half of the project, rather than the whole process. Although we have the most direct experience and experience in aircraft carrier construction, we still have some deficiencies in the whole history of aircraft carrier development. The construction of the 002 aircraft carrier made up the gap. Even the reversion is a valuable experience to build the whole process of the aircraft carrier construction. The significance of the technology and talent training for the aircraft carrier is indescribable by any pen and ink. Figure 2:002 and Liaoning are basically the same size drain. Besides, the 002 aircraft carrier has not made a lot of improvements to the Liaoning aircraft carrier. First of all, the Varyag was designed by the former Soviet Union in 70s, especially in the internal cabin structure, and there are many limitations. In the construction of the Liaoning, it was unable to be completely modified in accordance with the needs of the Chinese Navy because of the limitations of the sky. And the 002 type has no limitations. From the beginning, the design and layout of the internal compartments started from the needs of the Chinese navy. The picture is the Chinese Navy Liaoning ship The Varyag is a typical Soviet Russian heavy cruiser equipped with carrier based aircraft style, equipped with powerful firepower including cruise missiles. The 002 type carrier has taken into account the construction of the Chinese Navys 052 China shield destroyer and the 055 million ton destroyer. It can provide the aircraft carrier with strong air defense, ship, anti submarine protection. The aircraft carrier itself does not have to carry heavy firepower. It can be equipped with only a small amount like the American aircraft carrier. The guard is enough. Therefore, we can save a lot of space for armaments to be used for aviation operations. Figure 3:002 has a significant increase in the number of carrier aircraft than Liaoning. For example, the P-700 remote anti ship missile vertical launching system near the takeoff deck was cancelled, and the empty space was opened up with the original hangar, which greatly increased the area of the hangar. As a result, the 002 type aircraft carrier has a 1/3 increase in the hangar area than the Liaoning, and the number of carrier aircraft has increased considerably than the Liaoning, and is said to have reached about 35, an increase of 50% more than the Liaoning 24. The 35 carrier aircraft is basically the compilation of an aviation group, and the carrier aircraft that can be dispatched in actual combat will also increase greatly. We should know that the combat effectiveness of the aircraft carrier is reflected by the carrier aircraft, so from this point, the combat effectiveness of the 002 aircraft carrier has been greatly improved than that of the Liaoning. At the same time, on the deck of the type 002 carrier, the ship Island took up 10% less space than the Liaoning, and removed 4 weapon seats on the back deck, thereby increasing the space on the deck, and not only carrying more helicopters on the deck, as well as the large aircraft that could hold the hangar in the future (such as early-warning aircraft). And when the carrier aircraft is released, several more stops on the deck can be reduced, thereby reducing the time to take off the carrier aircraft. The area of flight deck 5:002 has also been greatly increased. Also, the upwarping angle of the skating deck of the 002 type aircraft carrier is 12 degrees, and the Liaoning skating deck has an upward angle of 14 degrees. Do not look down the difference of the 2 degrees, can effectively help the carrier aircraft to shorten the takeoff distance, so as to realize the carrier aircraft fuel saving, increase the load of weapons, greatly improve the operational efficiency of the carrier aircraft. At the same time, it can also enhance the firmness of aircraft carrier structure. Therefore, comprehensive hangar, flight deck, skid deck and other aspects of improvement, the number of the 002 type aircraft carrier in the number of carrier aircraft, aviation fuel and ammunition will be more than the number of Liaoning, according to the mathematical model, the operational capability will be three times more than the Liaoning. Figure 6:002 aircraft carriers combat capability has been greatly improved than Liaoning. The development of electronic equipment is the most rapid. It can be said that it is changing with each passing day. So the electronic equipment of the 002 type carrier is more advanced and natural than the Liaoning. The biggest improvement is the installation of a S band phased array radar with a number of 4 large antennas at the top of the ship Island, which is the most advanced radar system in China. It can achieve a 360 degree coverage search and carry out detection and tracking on ten air and sea targets. This also lets the 002 type aircraft carriers warning and command ability be higher than the Liaoning. Figure 7: Liaoning ship carrier Island feature As far as the overall combat capability is concerned, the 002 type carrier is less than the Liaoning carrier, although the drainage volume has not been significantly improved, but the actual fighting capacity is greatly improved. Therefore, the Chinese navy takes Liaoning as the cradle of the development of the aircraft carrier, grope for the experience of the use of the carrier, train the personnel of the aircraft carrier departments, test the formation and use of the aircraft carrier fleet, and use more as the aircraft carrier test ship. And the 002 type carrier is different, from the beginning of the design is to be the battle carrier to position, and destroyers, frigates, submarines and other components of the aircraft carrier combat group, the implementation of the true significance of sea and air operations.
