Deeply cut the F-16 of Taiwan, the "unjust head" that needs to be taken seriously2022-06-24 00:33:30 3 ℃
According to media reports, on June 7, a F-16A fighter that belonged to the "Air Force" affiliated to Taiwan, China, was forced to return to Hawaii due to a failure to return to Taiwan ’s islands in the United States. Essence On the same day, the other 6 F-16A returned to Taiwan Island from the United States.
"Special" F-16 Block 20
The origin of the F-16 of the US-made F-16 in Taiwan is quite deep. After the F-16 began to serve in the US military in the 1970s, Taiwan showed great interest in this aircraft. Obviously, when the F-15 is basically impossible, the F-16 is the most advanced model in Taiwan to introduce the possibility of introduction.
However, at that time, in the political considerations of the United States in the decision-making of foreign trade, Taiwan did not obtain the F-16 as expected. So the F-16/79 of the F-16 family was born-since it is a foreign trade model, the performance has been reduced. engine.
In 1989, Taiwan obtained the introduction of 60 "Phantom" 2000-5. In addition to changes in the international environment, the United States quickly changed its attitude and agreed to "export" 150 F-16 fighters in Taiwan: including Type A 120 Shelf, 30 B, a total amount of 6 billion US dollars.
This export project was named the "Phoenix Plan" by Taiwan.
The "Air Force" F-16 Block20 deployed in the United States
This batch of aircraft is quite special:
At first, the United States was unwilling to provide Taiwan with a complete performance version of F-16C/D, and only agreed to export the earlier version of F-16A/B; but after the 1990s, GE's mass production models have been with F- 16A/B has a significant difference.
After coordination, Taiwan has obtained a very special F-16 A/B mix and match version, which is the so-called "F-16 Block 20".
F-16 Block 20 on the body platform, the fuselage and analog electrical flight control system of F-16A/B Black 15 OCU is used; the other parts mainly come from different batches of the F-16C/D type, including Block 3222 F100-PW-220 engine, Block 30/40 wing, Block 52's rear wing, and Block 42 have a purse road with a hanging point.
On the fire control and aviation system, the F-16 Block 20 is mainly based on the MLU plan of the F-16, but it has made some functional restrictions and simplification. These changes are mainly related to the supporting pod and weapon solution of the machine.
As for the supporting pod and weapon solutions of these F-16s, it is naturally constrained by the United States:
The United States refuses to provide the AIM-120 active mid-range missile that can lock multiple targets at the same time after launching the machine. Only AIM-7M semi-active mid-distance spacing that needs to be continuously exposed during the launch process, one at a time can only lock the only target of attacking a single target at a time missile.
To this end, the AN/APG-66 radar was removed from launching the AIM-120 missile, but added a continuous wavelet.
It can be said that the batch of F-16 BLOCK20, which was originally obtained by Taiwan, was a three-generation machine with severe restrictions on the ground, accurate attack capability to the sea, and over-the-dimensional air combat capabilities.
For example, in the ground attack on the sea, it can only put the "Mavericks" missile that guided bombs and television -guided.
But in more than ten years after 1998, the combat capability of F-16 Block 20 has been greatly improved.
Taiwan has obtained incomplete functional versions of Lantirn pods, AN/VDS-5 LOROP-EO reconnaissance pods, AIM-120C-5/7 active mid-range missiles, "fish forks" anti-ship missiles and "sniper" "Pod and other equipment.
The F-16 after mount AGM84 pose a great threat to medium and large warships.
These changes have enabled F-16 Block 20 to obtain over-range combat capabilities of shooting multiple targets at the same time, low-altitude combat capabilities at night, anti-ship combat capabilities of large warships, and accurate attack capabilities for laser guidance bombs Wait.
Among these improvements, the F-16 Block 20 body and core avionics equipment themselves are not great-comprehensive and significant improvement and upgrade appeared on the later F-16V projects.
Or the F-16V that needs to be taken seriously
According to Taiwan's Ruyi abacus, its F-16 will follow the related plans of the US military to achieve "comprehensive upgrade". However, due to the reduction of military expenditure budgets in the United States, the US military's F-16 comprehensive upgrade plan has almost all canceled.
However, because the F-16 is not replaced by Taiwan, Taiwan chooses to continue promoting the completion of this project with "real gold and silver"-the result is the first time in 2012 that appeared at the F-16C/D Block 70/72 at the Singapore Air Show in 2012 Also known as F-16V.
F-16V displayed by Loma's official website.
According to some "agreements" between the United States and Taiwan, the ownership of the F-16V prototype belongs to Taiwan. The aircraft is resident in the Edward Air Force Base in the United States and is responsible for the relevant R & D test task, the serial number AF93-702.
An/APG-83 Active phase control array radar.
The F-16V is a standard three-generation semi-fighter jet. The configuration includes an/APG-83 active phase control array radar, JHMCS joint helmet aiming system, night vision, new electronic warfare system, suction coating, enhanced type starting type Falling the frame, etc.
Further subdivision, Taiwan ’s F-16V includes two categories: some are upgraded by F-16 Block 20, which is called F-16 AM/BM; the other is the 66 new C/D types made of newly manufactured. It is F-16 CM/DM.
On the vehicle device, there is a certain difference between AM/BM and CM/DM. CM/DM should be more advanced on electronic warfare, communication, and photoelectric aiming equipment.
In addition, the automatic anti -collision field system involves the in -depth integration of the electrical flight control system. As of now, it has not been installed on AM/BM. According to the previously public information, it will not be installed until the end of 2023.
In terms of power, the F-16 AM/BM has not further improved; although the original plan to replace the F100-PW-229 engine, due The series of factors, due to cost control factors, this improvement was canceled.
The F-16 CM/DM has a GE company F110-GE-129 engine with a significant increase in thrust.
F-16 Mount AIM-120 and AGM-88. Under the mounting configuration, the F-16 can form a high degree of threatening capacity for key nodes such as air defense radar and communication command center.
In addition to the body itself, the maximum improvement of the F-16V combat capability is that the supporting weapon system has been greatly updated. These include the fourth-generation fighting missile AIM-9X, JDAM precise guidance bombs, AGM-154 stealth long-range glide bombs, AGM-88 high-speed anti-radiation missiles, and MS -10 reconnaissance pods.
Because of the combination of F-16's good flight performance and combat capabilities, the F-16V has also been favored by other customers. As of June 2021, F-16V has received 140 new orders, and more upgrades have been upgraded: the United States itself will upgrade 608.
Under such "investment", Taiwan may also be able to obtain certain profits from the development and sales of F-16V. Judging from the current situation, the Taiwan F-16V group may be a force that needs to be treated seriously.
