近日,美国《海军知识》网站报道称,中国海军第一艘排水量超过一万吨的水面主战舰艇——055型驱逐舰的建造进展迅速。

BEIJING, Sept. 6 (ChinaMil) -- The U.S. website Navy Knowledge Online recently reported that the Type-055 destroyer, the PLA Navy's first main battle surface vessel with the displacement of over 10,000 tons, is in fast progress.

军事专家尹卓在接受央视《今日关注》采访时表示,若外媒有关055型驱逐舰的报道属实,则标志着中国水面舰艇建造能力又上新台阶。 

Yin Zhuo, director of the PLA Navy's Expert Consultation Committee, said in an interview with CCTV's Focus Today that if foreign media's reports on Type-055 destroyer were true, then China's surface vessel construction capability had reached a new high.

作为万吨级军舰,055型驱逐舰若给辽宁舰当“带刀护卫”有些大材小用,其未来护卫的目标应该是弹射起飞的航母。

But with such a large displacement, the destroyer should be used to escort aircraft carriers with catapult-assisted take-off (C.A.T.O.) capability rather than the aircraft carrier Liaoning, Yin added.

美媒报道称,据2016年7月底8月初的照片则显示,位于上海的造船厂已经开始对舰体进行组装。美媒判断,中国首艘055级驱逐舰很可能将在2017年年初下水,最快2018年交付海军。

According to U.S. media, the photo released in late July and early August 2016 indicated that the vessel body was being assembled at a Shanghai-based shipyard. They even conjectured that China's first Type-055 destroyer will enter the water in early 2017 and be delivered to the PLA Navy in 2018 at soonest.

尹卓则认为,若外媒有关055型驱逐舰的报道属实,则标志着中国水面舰艇建造能力又上新台阶。即便与排水量7000吨级的052D型驱逐舰相比,该型舰排水量也上升了数千吨,不仅可以搭载对空、对海武器,还可装载远程对陆攻击巡航弹,拥有对陆攻击能力。

According to Yin Zhuo, compared with the Type-052D destroyer with a displacement of 7,000 tons, Type-055's displacement is thousands of tons larger. It will be able to carry sea-to-air and sea-to-sea weapons as well as long-range sea-to-ground attack cruise missiles.

军事专家滕建群认为,美媒的报道比较“靠谱”。055型驱逐舰将会是一个综合作战平台,可遂行对空、反潜、反舰、对岸攻击等多种任务,凭借其强大的防空能力,可保证它更好地胜任航母“带刀侍卫”的任务,使航母万无一失地出现在远海。

Military expert Teng Jianqun held that American media's reports "can be trusted". The Type-055 destroyer will be a comprehensive combat platform that is able to carry out air defense, anti-submarine, anti-ship and sea-to-shore attacks, whose powerful air defense capability enables it to better perform the "escort" duty and make sure that aircraft carrier can sail on the high sea safely.

尹卓还指出,“如果让万吨级的大型驱逐舰担负辽宁舰的‘带刀护卫’有些大材小用。”

Yin Zhou also pointed out that "if a large destroyer with the displacement of 10,000 tons is used to escort the aircraft carrier Liaoning, that's like employing a steam engine to crack a nut ".

由于采用滑跃起飞方式的辽宁舰缺乏合适的预警机,因此在大规模规作战情况下,辽宁舰应该会在岸基预警机能够支援的范围内作战,不会离岸太远。

The aircraft carrier Liaoning, which adopts ski-jump takeoff, doesn't have appropriate early warning aircraft, so it will carry out operations within the support scope of shore-based early warning aircraft at times of large-scale combat and won't get too far away from the shore.

由此看来,作为远洋作战舰艇的055型驱逐舰,要护卫的目标很可能将是采用弹射起飞方式的航母。

Therefore, the Type-055 destroyer, which is capable of ocean-going combat, will probably escort CATO aircraft carrier, under whose cover its strong combat capability can be brought into full play.

而且在航母的掩护下,055型驱逐舰将发挥出较强的攻击能力。中国未来绝不会止步于滑跃起飞式航母,必将拥有具备信息化综合作战能力、采用弹射起飞方式的航母,航母上配备预警机、电子战飞机、固定翼反潜机等。

China will not stop at aircraft carriers of ski-jump takeoff, but will have CATO carriers with comprehensive IT-based combat capability and equipped with early warning aircraft, electronic warfare aircraft and fixed-wing anti-submarine aircraft.

弹射起飞式航母与055型大型驱逐舰组成的作战编队可赴远洋执行任务,加之编队中配备补给舰、攻击型核潜艇等,这样的航母编队将比辽宁舰航母编队再上一个大台阶,这将是中国海军成为真正远洋海军的第一步。

The combat taskforce comprised of CATO aircraft carrier and Type-055 destroyer, also equipped with supply ship and strike nuclear submarine, will be able to carry out ocean-going operations. It will be the first step taken by the PLA Navy to become a true ocean-going navy.
