Shandong ship size in the end how much? It Nimitz-class nuclear aircraft carrier and put together than to understand
aircraft carrier tonnage of the world today as the largest and most powerful deterrent, the highest cost and the difficulty of making the highest sea giant, is now able to independently develop and manufacture countries only China, the United States, Britain and France four countries, although India in the domestic carriers to create "Vikrant", but not aboard the aircraft carrier Indian design drawings, weapons systems, carrier-based aircraft, electronic systems and power systems need to purchase from the outside world, and can not claim to be able to build an aircraft carrier on the real meaning of country. Russia now does not have the ability to build aircraft carriers, although the "Kuznetsov" aircraft carrier has not yet retired, there are plans to build aircraft carriers, but the Soviet Union for decades failed to achieve a new aircraft carrier dream, and the whole Russian Navy still in decline, the future in order to build an aircraft carrier, it is even more impossible.
in these countries have aircraft carriers or have an aircraft carrier, the United States is undoubtedly the strongest. The United States has 10 active duty "Nimitz" class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and a "Ford" class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, which is 11 aircraft carrier full load displacement of more than 10 tons, all equipped with four catapults, adopted through the deck It designs, an aircraft carrier can carry a maximum of more than 90 various types of carrier-based aircraft, with the ability to perform global strike missions, like a giant offshore floating airport, is the core of the US Navy.
and China, France and Britain, on the aircraft carrier will lag behind the United States too much, whether it is the quality, the tonnage or quantity is not in a grade. France, which is only a 40,000-ton "Charles de Gaulle" aircraft carrier, the United Kingdom has two 70,000-ton full load displacement of "Queen Elizabeth" class conventionally powered aircraft carrier, the Chinese navy has two full load displacement of 65,000 tons were level Shandong, Liaoning ship and a ship. And in these carriers in addition to "Charles de Gaulle" nuclear-powered aircraft and the catapult use of nuclear power than others and are conventionally powered slide deck jump. Technical level and deterrence, with the United States are not in a horizontal line.
in particular, China, Liaoning aircraft carrier ship appeared solves the problem of whether the Chinese aircraft carrier, ship Shandong ending the history of Chinese navy can not build aircraft carriers. But compared with the United States, in the use and construction of aircraft carriers, we are not only technological backwardness, but also appears to be too young. US aircraft carrier to use the experience of more than a hundred years, and we until after the year 2012 in Liaoning ship service, only the first aircraft carrier, but the carrier's experience eight years. The same kind of technology is far behind, Liaoning ship formerly Soviet-built "Varyag" aircraft carrier, the Soviet Union and later to China, was converted to become the Navy's first aircraft carrier, the use of conventional power and a ski-jump flight deck design, operational efficiency is far less than the US Navy's nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. Shandong ship is developed from the principles of the Liaoning ship, although optimized, carrier-based aircraft equipped with more numerous, but still can not change the limit of tonnage, power and carrier-based aircraft to take off the way.
compared to the" Nimitz "gap on the number of nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, carrier-based aircraft is also great, even if it is the latest ship in Shandong, the number of F-15 fighter jets equipped with only there are about 36, plus shipboard helicopters, capable of carrying about 45 carrier-based aircraft. The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, the number of carrier capable of carrying more than 90, F / A18-based aircraft can carry a maximum of more than 60, in addition, can carry fixed-wing early warning aircraft, helicopters, fixed-wing transport aircraft or attack aircraft, and so on. Therefore, the carrying amount of the carrier, only about half of the Shandong ship Nimitz class aircraft carrier, and the model is single, carrier-based aircraft took off on the efficiency gap is also large.
Now, there is such a large gap in the carrying amount of tonnage and carrier-based aircraft, then ship 65,000 tons of Shandong and the US Nimitz-class aircraft carrier in size the gap be? In order to do visual comparison, we found the contrast effect diagram making friends, the next picture shows the Shandong-ship Nimitz class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier comparison chart and Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carrier, we can see from the figure, Nimitz-class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier deck of the longest and most wide. For further comparison, let's compare the data with proven, because the ship is designed with reference to Shandong, Liaoning ship, but also a transformation in Liaoning ship Varyag, so we have to the data Varyag prevail.
306.5 Mi aircraft carrier Varyag long
full width of 70.5 m
eat depth of 10.5 m
largest speed 30
maximum mileage 8000 sea miles
standard displacement of 58,000 tons
full load displacement of 65,000 tons
Nimitz class nuclear-powered aircraft length of 332.8 m
full width of 76.8 m
eat depth of 11.3 m
The maximum speed is greater than 30
standard displacement of 91,000 tons
full load a displacement of 104,000 tons
Queen Elizabeth class carrier length 280 m
full width of 73 m
ate depth of 11 m
maximum speed is greater than 25
maximum mileage 10,000 sea miles
standard displacement of 65,000 tons
is greater than the full load displacement of 70,000 tons
from the above data we can see, on the deck of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier the size of the largest, followed by the Varyag / Shandong ship aircraft carrier, a displacement of Queen Elizabeth is second only to the Nimitz-class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier from which we can easily see, Shandong ship deck area and although Nimitz-class nuclear aircraft carrier did not differ much, but because of the ski-jump deck and covers an area larger ship island design, taking up limited space, so that the deck can not take full advantage of aircraft carrier to dock, while the interior space optimization and carrier-based aircraft size differences, also contributed to the small size of gaps in the deck, the carrier aircraft was carrying a large amount of reasons for the gap. at the same time, we also hope that the next generation in our country aircraft carrier that can completely change this situation, reach the world advanced level.
