The new aerial tanker can fuel almost all fighters

CCTV recently played a section of the game. The mosaic of the 歼-20 film confirmed that the fifth-generation stealth fighter has begun aerial refueling training. This is the first time that the aircraft has been refueled in the air since its official debut. The almost simultaneous news shows that the Chinese Air Force is using the Il-78 aerial tanker to refuel the Su-30 fighter, which greatly extends the operational radius of the J-11 fighter. However, even more shocking news has emerged. China has used the self-developed large-scale transport aircraft to refit the large-scale aerial refueling machine, the oil-to-oil-20 officially flew for the first time. This is really a great news for China's goal of building a strategic air force!

Earlier, Il-78 was a surprise for Su-30.

As we all know, the aerial tanker is a companion babysitter on the modern air battlefield, allowing the participating groups to stay in the air for longer and longer distances. The Chinese Air Force's first air tanker was a bomber-6 improved on the basis of the H-6 bomber. Due to the platform, the aircraft could only perform aerial refueling for the J-8F and J-10 fighters. In order to refuel the 歼-11 series of heavy-duty fighters, in the strict sense, before 2015, the Chinese Air Force had only limited air refueling capacity, because this capability could not cover the most important models.

The Il-78 made up the last air refueling short board of the Chinese Air Force, but this patch is also very limited - because there are only three Il-78s in the district, this is the symbol that the Chinese Air Force can only operate in small and medium-sized air. The meaning of sexual protection. Therefore, after the Yun-20 began mass production of the Chinese Air Force, many people were calling for a certain amount of oil to be reconditioned as long as the production capacity reached a certain level, in order to meet the eagerness of the Chinese Air Force to establish a long-range strike capability. Because not only the J-11 series fighters, including the J-20, H-6N, Su-35, Air Police-500 and other fighters, they need to transport oil-20 to ensure remote patrol capability.

The bombardment -20 disclosed in 2 weeks ago is in the same box as the bombing oil

< p> I did not expect that China’s progress will be so fast. Just in November, there are pictures of foreign satellites showing that at the airport of Xi’an Flight Test Institute, it was found that there was oil--20 and Il-78 and H--6 stopped at the airport. News together. It’s not a few days later, the news that the oil-oil-20 officially made its first flight was really encouraging. From the data of Yunyou-20, the machine should be able to carry about 70 tons of oil for air refueling service, which can meet the air refueling needs of 6-8 歼-11 series or 歼-20 fighters (when supported) The data will change when the combat radius is different). If you can equip a fleet of 20 oil-to-oil fleets, the Chinese Air Force will not be afraid of any opponents inside and outside the second island chain!

China may still be fueling the development of the 歼-20

Air tankers, airborne early warning aircraft, large-scale strategic transport aircraft, large-scale electronic warplanes, etc., are collectively referred to as combat multipliers, which can allow fighters directly participating in the war to gain greater combat power, and thus are indispensable in the world military power equipment sequence. component. China is vigorously building a strategic air force. With the rise of national strength and the substantial extension of overseas interests, it is bound to place higher demands on the Chinese Air Force's long-range operations and support capabilities. The success of the first flight of the Yunyou-20 will enable almost all the models that can be refueled in China to accept its services. In particular, the 歼-20 will not only be able to fly around Taiwan but also patrol the southern Chinese seas. How to explain this? It seems that it is not too much!
