I did mention a little while back
that one could piece together the Xhinkslanteyedslaver’s new transport bird by checking out any NATO flight line at a paradrop ex. http://www.army.mil/article/133236/
By itself, the massive plane could extend the reach of
military into the deep west of the country, or far south and east onto disputed
islands. Taken in a broader context, China plans to both export and
create variants of the Y-20, which could include Chinese models of some of the
most feared aircraft on the modern battlefield.
The roots of the Y-20 begin like many other Chinese military vehicles.
It begins with an aerospace engineer by the name of Dongfan “Greg” Chung. The 75-year-old man from
was sentenced to 24 years and five months in prison in September 2011 for
spying on behalf of the Chinese regime. Orange County
Chung stole more than 250,000 documents from Boeing and Rockwell, which he supplied to
Among them were designs he stole in 2006 of the C-17 Globemaster III, which is
a Boeing freighter that China’s
new Y-20 bears a striking resemblance to.
The Y-20 seems to have pulled from other designs as well. A 2011 aviation report from IHS Jane’s notes it also likely pulls from designs of the Ukrainian An-70 and the Russian Il-76 heavy transport planes. Jane’s notes that
Ukraine had sold China designs of similar aircraft, and early
Chinese reports said the Y-20 included parts from Russia’s heavy freighter.
Development of the Y-20 seems to have picked up steam. Earlier this month, IHS Jane’s, a global intelligence company, reported that
had entered its second phase of testing, after the aircraft made its first
flight on January 26, 2013.
The Y-20′s move into the second phase marks advancements taking place behind the scenes—if
China is following common
definitions. As Jane’s notes, the first phase is on aerodynamic limits and
loading, while the second phase is on “testing the aircraft’s radar, navigation
systems, autopilot, de-icing system, environmental control systems, and
reliability in complex weather conditions.”
The eventual third phase is on exposing the plane to humidity and extreme temperatures, as well as testing it in high altitudes and on rough surfaces.
A Question of Logistics
While logistics may seem like a trivial part of a military, it is actually a major and extremely fundamental capability—and one desperately needed by the Chinese military if it’s going to pose any significant threat.
As things now stand, logistics is one of the
military’s most basic flaws on land, sea, and in the air. China is still
heavily reliant on railways to transport military assets over long distances.
In the South China Sea, China has been trying to bridge these gaps by building airstrips and ports on disputed islands—or by simply building new islands on top of reefs. On land and in the air, however,
China faces a
technological gap, and the Y-20 is their bid to mend this to a degree.
The key phrase behind the Y-20 is “projection of power.” One of the key draws to the huge freighters is that they can be modified to serve different purposes. In terms of logistics, they can be used as refueling planes for jets, or they could be used to transport paratroopers or military equipment.
The Y-20 can carry up to 200 tons, enough for
tank, the 58-ton Type-99A2. It can also fly up to 9,400 miles, which according
to the state-run China Daily, “means it is able to reach every place in Eurasia, Alaska, Australia and northern Africa.
While logistics may be
China’s most desired uses of the
Y-20, logistics will just be one of the freighter’s roles. China plans to
export the Y-20, and also plans to modify it for several variants—from spy
planes to bombers.
Current writings on the Y-20 in
China’s state-run press typically
only state its uses in transport and “humanitarian relief.” Yet, there have
been sporadic mentions of its other purposes.
“We will develop a number of variants of the Y-20 and we are definitely going to export them,” said Tang Jun, chairman of Xi’an Aircraft Industry (Group) Co, a subsidiary of Aviation Industry Corp of
according to the state-run China Daily.
There currently seems to be no mention of the exact types of variants
plans for the Y-20. Yet, a few hints can be gained from looking at the Chinese
freighter it will replace, the Y-8.
The Y-8 currently has close to 30 variants, which include geophysical survey aircraft and a gunship armed with three heavy machine guns and two heavy cannons.
Gunships are typically used to support special operations forces by providing close air support. The U.S. AC-130 gunship is one of the most feared weapons on the modern battlefield.
does replace its Y-8 fleet with the Y-20, it will put a plane in the air with a
much larger payload, and much larger capabilities. The Y-20 also allegedly
outperforms many other aircraft in its class, with Chinese reports claiming
that—unlike Russia’s Il-76—the Y-20 can land at small airports and in
“The Y-20 provides Chinese military industry with a homemade platform for domestic production of aerial-tanker, AWACS, large anti-submarine patrol aircraft, and large electronic reconnaissance aircraft,” states an analysis from Global Security.
It notes there are rumors that
China may use the Y-20 to test its
prototype airborne laser weapons, which are similar to the U.S. YAL-1 still
under development. It says “a Chinese laser-armed airplane might be more like
the American Tactical Laser, a C-130 laser gunship.”
A report from
National Defense University (NDU) called for China’s Xian Aircraft Corporation
to develop 400 of the Y-20 heavy transports. It notes that the United States has 700 medium and large transport
aircraft, Russia has 800,
has 200. It also states, however, that development on the Y-20 is being held
back by China’s poor engine
development—a common problem China
faces with current-generation military aircraft.
If you read the Rosetta outing here last, you will know that Uncle Joe got all knicker twisted when the ghost rockets scared the soon to be Jihadi States of
Scandinavia and Flavia, circa
As if Joe didn’t have enough on his plate hiding the evidence, with RCE/nylon help and connivance, of his murder scene; the largest ever in history. I mean Joe may have liked to bounce small children on his knee but if you were a child of the people he’d been told to kill it was your head bouncing off the concrete in a holocaust more likely. No iUNCSI for Joe. Oh no RCE/nylon doesn’t do criminal investigations of its criminals and pet psychopaths.
Well even though the homicidal diversity compliant old mustacheoed geezer may have been a bit worried if his share of the NSDAP plunder might have been all ersatzed by the money printers in RCE/Nylon he should have known that it would all have been handed to him anyway, on a plate, so the true op. was not aerospace but Gladio infiltration.
Look at the 1930s echoes of the Xhink airlifter story above.
DC2/3 technology was handed to Joe and Tojo on a plate before the kick off for “scare the shit out of the British experiment Pavlovbombingstylee pt 2” in 1939. Joe was all expectorant at playing with a B29 and would have handed his daughters over to Satan to get his hands on one. How else was he going to deliver his long promised A-Bomb. Uncle Sam wouldn’t play ball out of Boeing. I mean someone was trying their damndest of course in USofA corp, but even they couldn’t get a whole B29 shipped out in the diplomatic bag.
Uranium, Thorium, Cadmium etc. did get shipped, TNT/UPS/FedExstylee of course.
Now get your heads round that.
Everything that you have been told about
Manhattan is bollox.
So how did Uncle Sam’s traitors get Joe his bird?
They got it delivered direct. Every Tupolev, Xhink bomber since, with a diminution over time, has B29 DNA.
B29s ended up landing all conveniently in Soviet controlled territory whilst out on missions firebombing children in their cradles 1944 stylee. Then they got reverse engineered.
BTW if you think that only the German workers and scientists got their shit handed out candeestorestylee to the Victors then what do you think happened to British workers and scientist’s shit? Of course! Uncles Joe and Sam got their hands on our goodies Uncle Savile stylee.
Anyway I’m most likely going over to my other place to continue my thoughts on Dimensionlessness for the rest of the day. http://specificgravy.blogspot.co.uk/
