Let’s take a look at the response from the Great Empire. A report published by the London Think Tank stated that the Chinese Navy’s fourth-generation 055 destroyer, which is huge in scale and has complex technology, is a symbol of the capabilities of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Navy’s Deep Blue Navy surface combat fleet. The 055 destroyer that has been in service has a displacement of 12,000 tons and is called the Blade Sea-class cruiser by NATO. When the first destroyer 055 was launched a few years ago, it was called the largest surface warship in Asia (except for aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships) by the English media. Sidharth Kaushal (Sidharth Kaushal), a naval researcher at the British think tank “Royal United Army Research Institute” (RUSI), wrote in a report in October that the Chinese Navy’s 055 destroyer is much larger than the 052D destroyer and is widely adopted. New technology. According to the Chinese Navy, the 055 destroyer is “the iconic warship for the Chinese Navy to achieve strategic transformation and development.” But Kaushal believes that this new type of destroyer is not yet considered a game-changing weapon. He said in the report that from the historical development of China’s shipbuilding, the 055 destroyer can be counted as a new generation of high-quality first-line surface combat ships deployed by China. It can be used to understand China’s understanding of future wars and China’s efforts to improve future wars. Efforts for the effectiveness of the fleet in the environment “Better than the US and Japan destroyers” British think tank reported that although the Chinese Navy’s 055 is called a destroyer, its displacement and capability are close to the US Navy’s Ticonderoga-class cruiser (Ticonderoga). Ticonderoga’s warship with a displacement of 12,000 tons is equipped with 112 vertical launch units, allowing it to launch a larger number of larger, larger, and longer-range offensive and defensive missiles, enhancing its ability to respond to different threats. The ship’s missile launch system supports two modes: hot launch and cold launch. The report believes that the vertical launch system is equipped with the 400-kilometer Eagle Strike-18 anti-ship cruise missile, which enables the 055 to have a farther strike capability than the current similar ships. In addition, 055’s vertical launch system can also be equipped with Yu-8 rocket-assisted anti-submarine torpedo and Longsword-10 medium- and long-range ground-to-ground cruise missile. The 055 destroyer has quality advantages over the U.S. Navy Ticonderoga-class cruiser, Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force King Kong-class destroyer and Atago-class frigate, such as improved stealth and more advanced sensor functions. The Type 346B Active Active Phased Array Radar (346B AESA) equipped with the 055 destroyer is superior in accuracy, anti-detection and anti-jamming to the use of “passive and passive” (PESA) such as the 3D radar produced by Lockheed Martin radar. “It is not a weapon that changes the rules.” Chinese military commentators have noticed that compared with the latest Maya-class destroyer of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force, the Chinese Navy’s 055 destroyer has more powerful battlefield situational awareness. The report believes that the battle management system and command and control capabilities of the 055 destroyer are not as good as similar ships in Japan. Japanese Mayer Chinese analysts emphasized network integration of air defense and surface strike missions of warships, but the report said there may be software limitations in this regard. In addition, the 055 destroyer does not use an integrated full electric propulsion system, which limits the space for future development of the ship’s capabilities, such as being equipped with magnetic railguns and directed energy weapons. Despite the rapid expansion of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Navy in recent years, there are still fewer active large surface warships such as guided missile destroyers than the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force, not to mention the US Navy, which has the largest number of large surface warships in the world. The report believes that even if all 8 055 destroyers are in service, the above quantitative comparison cannot be changed. The author of the report, Kausal, believes that the Chinese Navy’s deployment and procurement of multiple 055 large destroyers shows the new shipbuilding model of large surface ships. China’s warship manufacturing will integrate domestic and foreign technologies to carry out trials in different modes. Once the design is passed, it will enter a large series of manufacturing stages. For example, in 1990-2012, the Navy purchased 6 types of guided missile destroyers. The report believes that if the 055 is equipped with a railgun and Dongfeng-21D anti-ship ballistic missile in the future, its surface firepower will be fundamentally improved. In the future, this 10,000-ton destroyer may become a key part of the PLA aircraft carrier battle group in the future. The emergence of China’s 0.55 million tons of destroyers, coupled with the existing Japanese Maya-class guided-missile destroyers and South Korea’s Sejong-class destroyers, challenged the emerging view of future naval warfare that the devastating strikes come from small ones that are not easily detected. Battle platform. Kaushal said that although large platforms are easy to detect, they also have more advantages, such as powerful power generation capabilities, which can also form new technological advantages and improve their survivability in the missile era. In addition, large destroyers like 055 can also serve as command and control hubs for small boats and unmanned ships.
