Zhuhai air show in this, CASIC exhibited new ground missile export-oriented – CM-802AKG, shaped like a common C-802 missiles, but some subtle differences.
Why does this look so much like the missile C-802? replica isabel marant
Name from the missile can tell, this missile is based on the C-802 series missile developed as a subtype. The traditional C-802 missiles with active radar guidance, the main target for marine vessels, as reflected strong ground clutter, land targets complex shape, so it was not suitable for attack ground targets, so in order to meet the national military-to-ground attack capability demand, need to develop a type of ground attack missiles. This development model using a mature missile missiles and power systems, reducing the difficulty of development and maintenance of the armed forces, but also with sophisticated missiles to achieve the greatest degree of general, greatly reducing the development and use of cost. SLAM missiles the United States followed the AMG-84 is also a full range of missile and missile maintenance equipment.
Why a TV seeker?
TV seeker is to present the basic ground attack missile seeker, the use of visible light TV cameras, the shape of the object, you can directly attack the easiest most intuitive, most capable object recognition. On this basis, you can also dress up imaging infrared seeker for the night attack.
What this TV special seeker it? Calf with the previous television-guided missiles like the difference?
Now the TV missile seeker and the like with the calf compared to the traditional missile, the biggest difference is that the installation of a data link. Mavericks like the tradition of missiles, missile launchers have been captured before the camera to the target, the pilot selected targets before firing, the aircraft must be entered before finding the target visual contact distance attack, increased risk of containing the machine itself; in the fight against target types, or only against long-range pre-fixed route planning goals, or is only in the pilot direct control of the visual range attack point targets and moving targets. 2 stars looked down upon the United States to begin the installation on the glide bomb with a TV seeker, data link, and then SLAM SLAM missiles in the supercilious star follows the data link, you can shoot the missile in flight to the image transmission back to the aircraft, the the pilot to attack selected targets, greatly improves the combat aircraft standoff point target against a moving target and the ability to do even before the bomb hole, after playing follow-up. SLAM This attack is a revolutionary value, after the development of countries in this standoff attack weapons they use a data link imaging seeker guidance system.
CM-802AKG addition seeker, is also what specific improvements?
According to China’s air force to use their own judgments KD88 ground missile, CM-802AKG because you do not have great size and weight of the radar seeker and does not need to drag a great way to attack low-level access, so the warhead has a weight and a range of substantial increase in C-802 warhead than doubled, to 340 kg level, greatly improving the destructive power; range of nearly 300 km, the aircraft can be outside the safe range air defense missile attack.
