据英国《简氏防务周刊》7日报道,近日,中国中央电视台节目画面显示,解放军陆军防空部队已经装备了“红旗”-16导弹的新改进型。

BEIJING, Sept, 13 (ChinaMil) --"The China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC) has developed a new variant of its HQ-16 (Red Flag-16) self-propelled medium-range surface-to-air missile (SAM), according to imagery released by Chinese state television in early September." Britain's Jane's Defence Weekly reported on September 7.

该刊称,该型导弹可能代号为“红旗”-16B,其射程从原“红旗”-16A的40公里提高到了70公里。

The Jane's report said that "the new variant (referred to by some as the HQ-16B) appears to have an improved rocket motor and revised wings, which sources say increase the missile's range to 70 km, up from the 40 km credited to the HQ-16, in service with the air defense units of the People's Liberation Army Ground Force ."

军事专家李杰在接受记者专访时表示,外媒的推测有一定根据,改进型“红旗”-16导弹的射程和性能会有明显提升。

Military expert Li Jie, also a senior research with the PLA Naval Military Studies Research Institute, said in an interview that the foreign media's conjectures are not totally groundless and the improved HQ-16's firing range and performance will be notably enhanced.

我国防空导弹系统研制现在已经到了突破发展期,进入快车道,走在世界前列。

The development of air defense missile system in China has embarked on a fast track and is in a leading position in the world, Li added.

报道称,这一新型“红旗”-16导弹被一些媒体称为“红旗”-16B。从外形上看,这款导弹采用了新型发动机,弹翼也经过改进。简氏防务分析认为,这将使导弹射程从40公里提高至70公里。

Photos released by foreign media show that the improved HQ-16 missile system has a longer body and the relative position of its wings is changed, indicating the quantity of propellant is increased and firing range is considerably extended.

该系统对于隐形目标的搜索、发现、跟踪和打击,作战效果也较好。

Regarding how to deal with stealth targets, Li Jie said HQ-16 has its unique approaches but needs systematic collaboration to achieve better effects.

在应对隐形目标方面,李杰表示,“红旗”-16有自己独特的举措,但还需要靠系统的配合达成更好的作战效果。红旗-16防空导弹系统配备相控阵雷达,并引进俄制搜索雷达,这些雷达相互配合,不仅能够发现大批量来袭目标,还能同时跟踪数十个目标,并打击重点目标。

He expressed that the HQ-16 missile system is equipped with phased array radar and Russia-made search radar, which, when working together, can discover large quantities of incoming attackers and track tens of targets at the same time while hitting key ones. The system is also good at searching, discovering, tracking and attacking stealth targets.

中国空军新闻发言人申进科大校28日表示,目前,空军地面防空兵在创新驱动发展中形成了远中近程、高中低空相结合的作战体系,信息化条件下防空反导能力全面提升,构筑起捍卫国家空天安全的蓝天盾牌。

Senior Colonel Shen Jinke, spokesperson for the PLA Air Force, said on August 28 that the Air Force's ground air defense troops have established a combat system covering long, medium and short ranges and high, medium and low altitudes. With comprehensively enhanced anti-missile air defense capability, they have put up a "blue shield" to ensure China's national air and space security.

“红旗”系列防空导弹构成了我国地空防空导弹的主体,从近程的“红旗”-7,中程的“红旗”-16、红旗-12,到远程的“红旗”-9等,形成一个体系化的防空反导力量家族。

The HQ series, as a systematic family including short-range HQ-7, medium-range HQ-16 and HQ-12 and long-range HQ-9, constitute the main part of China's surface-to-air missiles.

李杰表示,“红旗”系列防空导弹,整体性能逐步提升和发展。而且,我国自主研制防空反导武器及其相关配套系统的能力明显增强,特别是在电子设备和火力系统方面,国产装备的性能明显超越同类进口装备。

According to Li Jie, the HQ series' overall performance has been gradually improved, and China's capability of independently developing and manufacturing anti-missile air defense weapons and auxiliary systems has also been obviously enhanced. Especially regarding electronic equipment and fire system, China-made equipment has superior performance than imported one.

“我们的发展后劲特别强,自主研发、自主建造、自主改进的能力正在不断提高,并产生了质的飞跃。”李杰说.

"We have a strong developing momentum. The capability of independent R&D, manufacturing and improvement is constantly enhanced and has achieved substantial progress," Li Jie said.

李杰强调,我国防空导弹系统研制现在已经到了突破发展期,进入快车道,走在世界前列。而且,我国防空导弹武器物美价廉,在出口方面也颇具优势,对于一些中小国家很有吸引力。

"The development of air defense missile system in China has embarked on a fast track and is in a leading position in the world. Moreover, China's air defense missile weapons have advantages in export for their fair price and high quality, and are very attractive for medium-sized and small countries," he added.
