This video shows you that China Irons Out High Altitude Jet Fighter Engine Faults In Boost To Defences Against India.
Footage of Chinese planes on drills in the country’s mountainous southwest suggest the military has overcome engine problems plaguing the aircraft at high altitudes, sounding a [email protected] to regional rival India, military analysts said.
Video of Chengdu J-10 and Shenyang J-11 jets flying low over snow-capped mountains was posted on the People’s Liberation Army’s official website on Monday.
The jets are part of China’s fleet of third-generation lightweight multi-role fighter aircraft and are powered by Russian AL-31F engines.
Military observers said the engines had previously lost power above 3,000 metres, leading to a string of accidents.
In September 2015, a J-10 from the former Shenyang Military Region crashed on a night patrol when the plane climbed above 3,350 metres, state-run China Central Television reported. The pilot ejected to safety.
The footage also showed a Shaanxi Y-9 transport aircraft taking off and landing at a high-altitude airport. The Y-9 can carry 106 passengers or 132 troops at one time.
A Xian JH-7 fighter-bomber is also seen flying over the snow-covered terrain, filling out the combat line-up in the PLA Air Force’s Western Theatre Command, which ranges from Chongqing to Tibet and Xinjiang.
In the video, Zhan Houshun, the western theatre’s air force commander, also said domestic and international training had boosted the air force’s combat readiness.
“In various exercises, we not only target ‘imaginary rivals’, but focus more on acquiring useful and effective combat sk!lls,” Zhan said.
Military analysts said the apparent smooth flights by the planes suggested the air force had overcome the engine’s high-altitude problems, bolstering the PLA’s defences against India.
