according to the British "Financial Times" website reported on November 4th, despite fears that Chinese will "copy" of Russian technology, Russia is still in 2004 for the first time in China since the suspension of trading in the sale of advanced weapons. Japanese government officials worried that the move would undermine the stability of the region's fragile security situation. China and Russia had agreed that Beijing will buy 24 advanced Su -35 fighter aircraft, 4 of which will be delivered by the end of this year. In accordance with the contract, the total amount of $2 billion, the remaining aircraft will be delivered to China in 3 years. Russia also agreed to deliver its S-400 air defense missile system as early as 2018.
reports that Su -35 is an advanced Russian fighter, with enhanced avionics and long range flight capability. It can carry out air combat and combat ground and sea targets.
Asia is no country in the use of such advanced aircraft. For example, Japan's main fighter is the fourth generation of American F-15. Japan plans to buy 42 more advanced F-35 fighter jets from the United States before 2024. However, in view of China's military budget is about three times the Japanese, once Beijing can get Su -35, from the medium term China will occupy the advantage in the comparison of military forces.
reported that the new advanced weapons Chinese may give in the East China Sea and South China Sea air supremacy. In 2013 it set up the East China Sea Air Defense Identification zone. Japan and U.S. officials worry that the next action will be in the South China Sea designated air defense identification zone. Sue -35 will enhance China's ability to patrol the airspace.
as for the S-400 sales contract, it may have a greater impact on the military forces of the impact. This air defense missile system has a range of 400 kilometers, can hit the flight altitude of 31 thousand meters. According to S-400's Russian producer, it can hit 36 targets at the same time, not only can hit the aircraft can also play a ballistic missile.
Beijing already has older S-300 systems, which can only cover parts of Taiwan. S-400 will enable it to combat any target in Taiwan airspace, and can hit the target of COSCO in New Delhi.
