Varyag aircraft carrier reconstruction scene
According to Russia's "periscope 2" Web site on May 27 reported that the Russian navy source told the recent "Chinese and Asian Defense" magazine interview, said that China's carrier-based pilots and ground simulation training system in Ukraine Nitka system very similar, both in size and appearance, especially close. The source believes that the system alone for Nitka two or three visits, the Chinese people do not complete the imitation of their work.
Recently, one from Ukraine, the news of the defense industry system in the acceptance of "Chinese and Asian defense" interview finally confirmed Russia's guess. Ukraine to sources, a Ukrainian state company (possibly special equipment export company in Ukraine) deeply involved in the construction process of China's aircraft carrier and on the "Varyag" aircraft modification work. He also stressed that the available information comes from this enterprise, however, the actual participation of the size of Ukraine is not as big as speculation.
The source also confirmed that the "Varyag" number will be equipped with Ukrainian-made power plant in the report is true. In addition, Ukraine is only provided China with two "European bison" type air-cushion landing craft, rather than the foreign media, the famous four.
He said, "Over the past 2-3 years, China and the military-technical cooperation between Ukraine has entered a completely different level with the previous, mainly because of: China to access to technology, and we believe that this is not in line with our economic interests. Therefore, in the Ukraine during the presidential visit to Beijing, although the two sides discussed the prospects for consolidation of military-technical cooperation, but now, it has not signed any specific plans. In the initial stage, the Chinese people want to learn how to design 'European bison', and we explained that to do so well, can provide some help Ukraine, but will not transfer technology. The results, the Chinese version of the 'bison' is not the same as its prototype, installed on its Chinese-made weapons and fire control systems. In addition, the final assembly work is also conducted in China. At the same time, taking into account the size of China's air-cushion landing craft, we also changed the layout of the cabin. "
The source also pointed out: "Ukrainian experts has visited Harbin Boiler Works of China. In your type of gas turbine has been known DN80 cooperation projects (including to provide China with the production of this type of gas turbine technology) after the Ukraine in the field of naval systems The most massive of a cooperation program is to assist the production of military power in Harbin Boiler Works boilers and power plant. "However, when asked whether these new boilers will be installed on the aircraft carrier built by China's imminent, he just smiled .
Can now determine that "Varyag" was developed by China and Ukraine's large aircraft carriers will be equipped with military boilers. Related work very well, Ukraine will provide China with several test boiler.
China has built aircraft carrier in the ground simulation training system, the pilot issue, sources said Ukraine, in cooperation of both sides is very limited, because the Ukraine has sold weapons technology and equipment, and is not responsible for the construction of military facilities. Ukraine's only advice to the Chinese side on the facility's internal planning, and provide them with information about buildings and facilities information.
"Chinese and Asian defense" that, even with the help of the above that, for China is also a good result. Cooperation with Ukraine, China has been possible to find out about the construction of training facilities in the main method.
There are many opportunities for Ukraine's arms and technology sales to China, and Russia in this respect there are obvious differences - the latter's exports of arms and military technology and equipment required to export through the Russian defense companies.
Wu sources said China had provided R-27T / R "air to air" missile ARTEM company can also export anti-tank missiles, the enterprise has the right to export independently. In addition, the Kharkov machine-building design bureau also have the right to export tanks 6TD-2 engine, and Antonov company and "Yves Qinke - progress," Chinese companies are able to provide air directly to the engine.
In the back of China's carrier-based pilots training system built on the issue, "Chinese and Asian defense" in a few years ago reported that Nitka directly subordinate to the Ukrainian navy training facilities, and Ukraine is an independent export of certain Department of Defense the rights of these weapons systems. Sources have said that Su -33 fighter prototype carrier T-10K is not exported by Ukrainian companies to provide special equipment to China. "Chinese and" The View, T-10K may be Wuhai Army or the Department of Defense to provide the name of retired equipment to China. Nitka system the relevant documents may also be sold directly by the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine to China.
As for Ukraine to help China to build aircraft carriers in the role on the issue, Ukraine, sources pointed out that Ukraine has sent to China only a limited number of experts. According to "Chinese and" estimates, this news means that most of the experts in Ukraine have been dismissed based on his own behalf, may go to China.
