China says new jet not copied from US :lol:

Quote:
China has rejected reports that its new aircraft carrier-borne fighter jet J-15 was copied from US technology.

Defence ministry spokesman Geng Yansheng said China had stuck to independent innovation and had the capacity to build and develop its own aircraft carrier.

"The assertion that China copied a foreign country's aircraft carrier technology is unprofessional, if not an intentional attack," he was quoted as saying by the Global Times Friday.


China should clarify where it copied the tech from US or Russia? :rotfl:

Hmm. Just curious. I have not seen anyone accusing China of copying the J-15 from the US. The only reason for China to come out with such a statement is for internal Chinese consumption - that is I am guessing that Chinese people have been critical of the way China is being shamed because the J-15 is a copy. So they are being given a balm by this white lie, or black truth. The J-15 is not copied (from the US). Ashwathhama (the elephant) is dead

You did not miss much, saarey. As per diagram, the PLAAF intercepted a PAKFA with "nuclear armed" SU30s... we are dhooomed :((

But it is nice to know (for more than one reason) that they indulge in cheongsam-shiver, whenever a takeoff happens at Tezpur :lol:

No it does not. deployment of weapons in space comes under weaponization of space (not that I think India signed any such treaty)

Yes, you are right on the first point, but India did sign and ratify the Outer Space Treaty.

Also another point of interest from wikipedia aunty article on Outer Space Treaty says that

Note that this treaty does not ban the placement of weapons in space in general, only nuclear weapons and WMD.

if the chinese were spooked by the presence of IAF jets over Tawang and had to send in their own, then does this mean that this is the first time Indian jet planes were flying over tawang or its the first time Chinese were able to detect/counter them

Otherwise this should have been a routine thing for them and they would not have bothered

Check these two locations on Wikimapia - They are situated to north of the strategic Chumbi Valley along the main communication axis (S204) between rear areas in Tibet and PLA positions along India and Bhutan borders.

http://wikimapia.org/#lat=27.7255222&lon=89.1638561&z=19&l=0&m=b&tag=516
http://wikimapia.org/#lat=27.8349868&lon=89.1364117&z=16&l=0&m=h&v=1

Both these locations host radars - with the second one having multiple Radar domes. Both these sites are situated at an elevation of 14,500 - 15,500 feet. Now, the crest of the mountain range between India and Tibet (in this region) is in 16K-18K range - and IMO, this is the maximum height. Other areas on the crest are at lower height.

Considering that any Indian air offensive into Tibet will also have to cross this mountain crest, the Chinese radars placed here can pick up these formations and provide advance warning. For example, Tawang is itself at 8K+ height with surrounding mountain features in 11K-13K feet range...so, a fighter formation in the area is likely to be flying in excess of 15K - and can be picked up by Chinese radars in the area.

However, if you analyze the fact that Jaguars have been practicing flying in the area (flying incident in Sikkim) - my guess is that IAF has been working towards using natural features like mountains to mask their presence - at least in initial hours while trying to take out radars and other important areas.

Why can't IAF take out these radar sites with missiles like Brahmos when needed instead of going the Jaguar route ?

Why do you think it can't ..? Surely Missiles can not have practice run in Arunachal Pradesh...or Sikkim

The Jaguar route was speculation on my part - after all, front line fighters, and that too of the kind custom made for interdiction roles, like Jaguar, don't go and play in mountains for site seeing... :P

Coming to Brahmos - well, them sure can be a good option. Was checking on the distance of these radar domes linked by me - they are well within the range of Brahmos fired from the plains in Siliguri corridor...no need even to move into mountainous territory in Sikkim at all...firing units can be placed in the plains and used to hit targets deep behind the battlefield. Guess, we now know why the latest version of Brahmos has 'deep dive' feature with ability to hit targets in mountainous terrain - especially, those tucked away behind mountain ridges.

wong, the high quality goods made in China are designed and manufactured on behalf of foreign companies, like Apple, Sony, etc., who take a close interest in the quality of what comes out. No one complains about this stuff.

But that is not the right analogy for Chinese made weapon systems, which are China designed and China manufactured, with no foreign client to guide engineering design or quality control. That is why you have to resort to Copy and Paste (with errors).

China designed and China manufactured goods are poor quality and generally unreliable, just like your weapon systems. Its not a question of price; its a question of engineering design and manufacturing competence, where indigenous Chinese companies are frankly at the low end of the spectrum.

China exports all sorts of goods at both ends of the spectrum.I have seen a prada look alike and a prada (real stuff) both made in china looking the same for all but the discerning eyes.Same goes for electronic goods, you can get ripped off easily.High end headphones and look alikes (including packaging and documentation) are a good example., but OT ! I would prefer a made in India stuff if given an option ! , forget the chinese dollar store., not worth the time or money.If you see the label made in china ., avoid it if you can !

The exact same argument has been said against all the East Asian nations starting with Japan, etc. China will be no different than all the other East Asian nations and India will be no different than all the South Asian nations.

You are right India will be no different in future. China is ahead in faking right now. That is all that we are trying to say. If we talk about the present, China is ahead of India in faking and copying and making cheap low quality goods.

Wong,

Let us get back to the topic of this thread please.

Seriously, is there even one engine that is totally Chinese made? Not one that is produced under license, with a name change.

Some for an air craft, is there one which did not require any assistance?

Ever? Go back to the 50s if you want to.

TIA.

Folks, IF China was really self sufficient in design and development of cutting edge air crafts - read J-20/31 - then I very much doubt they would have gone back to Russia for Su-35s.

The J-20/31 are an achievement ONLY in relationship to where China was in say 2000 or so. Not even in relation to Su-35s!!!!

It is nice to have such advancement, better than none at all. But, it is a relative advancement that cannot sustain itself.Not to take anything away from them.

Indian Navy will intervene in South China sea, if required

Quote:
The Indian Navy is practicing to operate in the South China Sea to protect its economic assets.

Speaking to reporters in New Delhi Admiral D K Joshi told reporters that "Where our country's interests are involved, we will protect them and we will intervene."

The Eastern Naval Command - which looks at India's eastern sea board and likely to play a key role when the Navy is deployed in South China Sea- is also being strengthened.

The decision to use the Navy in the South China Sea comes days after Chinese state media announced that the southern Hainan province, which administers the South China Sea, approved laws giving its police the right to search vessels that pass through the waters. Also Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan and India protested a map on a new Chinese passport that depicts disputed areas as belonging to China. The Philippines also issued a statement saying it wants Beijing to "clarify its reported plans to interdict ships that enter what it considers its territory in the South China Sea," the Associated Press reported over the weekend.

Anyway for weapons, China is importing less and less and exporting more and more, while India is importing more and more but export almost nothing (or negligible).

This is an undeniable fact. India is importing weapons 3 times more than China with a huge and growing trade deficit, and a 1/3 defense budget, 1/4 economy, 1/8 national budget, 1/10 total goods export, and less than 1/50 military weapon export value of China.

Your defense industry really need to work a little bit harder. It is not sustainable.

^^India has options that China does not (thanks to embargoes). Combine this with a best that money can buy attitude inherent in much of the military establishment in India (Navy being notable exception), you can imagine why the local products do not get the required support. China not only cannot get enough stuff from outside, its generals also make money (illegally and legally) from local sourcing. So, u see the disparity in domestic production between China and India. That said, things are slowly changing and in a couple of decades the private sector in India will have entered the MIL-IND complex in a big way. So, enjoy it while it lasts.

I know my arguments are lost on the so called Chinese posters on this thread, but hey, I am stupid enough to feed a troll.

Absolutely. Apart from 'Organ harvest' of 'falun gong' china is good at everything mentioned below.

1. Burning
2. Electric Shock
3. Sexual Abuse
4. Psychiatric & Drug Abuse
5. Force-feeding
6. Savage beatings
7. Freezing and Exposing
8. Water Dungeon
9. Forced Abortions
10. “Death Bed”

got a taste of your own medicine, this is how you discuss things in "Chinese thread" by bringing in India, in every discussion.

This may be a norm in Juvenile forums that you visit, but not here.

Ok. A quiz for you.

Who is the world's largest weapons importer till 2011?

A Chinese source for you.

Falling: China’s Share of Global Arms Imports

Quote:
China’s arms exports nearly doubled in 2007 to 2011 from five years earlier, Sipri said, making it the world’s sixth biggest supplier after the United Kingdom. About two-thirds of China’s weapons were sold to neighboring Pakistan, it said, including 50 JF-17 combat aircraft, 203 tanks and three warships.


You 'sell' two-thirds of your weapons to pakistan and one-third of it North-Korea. And it is 'weapons exports' :lol: It can be called 'Weapons Aid'.

Quote:
This is an undeniable fact. India is importing weapons 3 times more than China with a huge and growing trade deficit, and a 1/3 defense budget, 1/4 economy, 1/8 national budget, 1/10 total goods export, and less than 1/50 military weapon export value of China.


Another undeniable fact is, The great chinese still fakes Indian goods like medicines & bikes. When members here call the 'great chinese' fakers, cheaters you take offense of that 'fact'.

Quote:
Your defense industry really need to work a little bit harder. It is not sustainable.


I agree. But you have posted it in the wrong threat. This thread is 'China military watch'.

Yes why not? That should give everyone who visits this thread an idea of what Chinese talk about when they are referring to their military "achievements" :lol:

Bring it on although I would prefer to see answers to

1. What is the intended role of the J-20 and J-31
2. Specs of J 20 and J-31

It is amazing that you Chinese can fake everything but are unwilling to give even a fake answer to the questions. Of course we will rip you a new one if you do that - so the choice is yours. You are taking the easy route and talking about Child sex. Loser. :rotfl:

Wong - rather than commenting about India - please read a suggested reading by your compatriot Yang Jisheng as to how the 'great' Mao killed 36 million Chinese Tombstone: The Great Chinese Famine, 1958-1962 - an eyewitness account. Interestingly, it was revealed only after 40 years! God knows what else is hidden. With leaders like Mao, who needs an enemy or nuclear weapons? :rotfl:

Oh! Forgot to mention this book may not be available in China - it is censored :evil: :eek: It is available in the US where 'Chinese guns are popular' by your claims :D

LOL Indians. Do you even read what you regurgitate. Mao personally killed 36 million people from 1958-1962?? Mao killed someone every 4.38 seconds for 5 years. It couldn't be the man made famine (something Indians should know plenty about).

Wong, I did not want to embarrass you so much. But it would be better if you just answered Shiv's simple question - specs on J-15s, J-31s, etc. You seem to be answering everything else but that!

Nothing has changed in China - afaik, it has only gone worse. Here is the gist of the book:

Quote:
An estimated thirty-six million Chinese men, women and children starved to death during China’s Great Leap Forward in the late 1950’s and early ‘60’s. One of the greatest tragedies of the twentieth century, the famine is poorly understood, and in China is still euphemistically referred to as the “ :rotfl: three years of natural disaster.”

As a journalist with privileged access to official and unofficial sources, Yang Jisheng spent twenty years piecing together the events that led to mass nationwide starvation, including the death of his own father. Finding no natural causes, Yang lays the deaths at the feet of China’s totalitarian Communist system and the refusal of officials at every level to value human life over ideology and self-interest.

Tombstone is a testament to inhumanity and occasional heroism that pits collective memory against the historical amnesia imposed by those in power. Stunning in scale and arresting in its detailed account of the staggering human cost of this tragedy, Tombstone is written both as a memorial to the lives lost—an enduring tombstone in memory of the dead—and in hopeful anticipation of the final demise of the totalitarian system.


Your favorite Americans have to say this about your Country (of course, they like Chinese guns too!):

Quote:
Ian Johnson, writing in The New York Review of Books, called the Chinese edition of Tombstone “groundbreaking…The most authoritative account of the great famine…One of the most important books to come out of China in recent years.
