Military-technical cooperation between Russia and China: Realities and Prospects

Military-technical cooperation between Russia and China: Realities and ProspectsIn October, the Stockholm Institute international research problems of the world (SIPRI) Published report "The relations between China and Russia in the field of energy and security: hope, frustration and uncertainty."

Speaking of the prospects for Russian-Chinese military-political cooperation, zabugornye experts distinguish several of his destinations.
First line — the role of the sun 2-states in joint military exercises with other partners in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, entitled "Peace Mission", since 2005.

Second direction, claiming status as a major contribution of military cooperation of the SCO states — is taking a principled document, developed by the military diplomats RF and China, according to which the two countries are the originators of the project contract to prevent the placement and deployment tools in space. Very catchy, that the adoption of this document caused a disproportionate reaction on the part of the United States.
The third pillar of the military-political cooperation between Russia and China is to maintain stability in the border areas of States of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. China, as well as our homeland, much interested in preventing the expansion of the zone of impermanence Afghanistan terrain of Central Asia. In an October report, SIPRI also said that China's involvement began in ensuring security in Central Asia, of course, will lead to an increase in political and economic influence of China in the region, is an area of exceptional public interest of. According to experts SIPRI, the likely anti-US alliance RF China and the Russian Federation will not maintain its influence in Central Asia. Because experts at the Institute believe that our home can very quickly lose its Asian influence, if not in the region will allow the United States and China, preventing unchallenged predominance of one or another state. In response to this, we can say that there is another option of maintaining the effects of in the Central Asia — is a tight fit in the integration of the forms, which are meant to implement the construction of the Eurasian Union. This option zabugornye professionals in the report, for some reason have not considered.

And, in the end, the quad area that can be the main topic of the SCO — it is actually the military-technical cooperation. According to the plan on the 12th. industrial five-year plan of China, from 2010 to 2015 sverhtehnologichny production growth in the military-industrial complex of the country should be 15%. What is the need for China to segodnyaschy weapons? Speakers SIPRI said that the country can not avoid cooperation with its partners in the issue of production of fighter aircraft, submarines and surface ships. Apart from this, China is interested in aircraft deliveries distant aircraft, transport aircraft, refueling aircraft, and sea-based missile systems.

The most a weak link in the defense industry of China is engine building. In this area, China in particular, is counting on Russia. The experience of military-technical cooperation with Russia includes not only the supply of ready-Russian arms (Su-27/Su-30 fighters, transport aircraft and Mi-17 helicopters, air defense systems S-300 PMU1 / 2 and Tor-M1, diesel -electric attack submarines projects 636E and 877E, destroyers, and cruise missiles), and delivery devices for IWT China, the company is also licensed production of weapons on the territory of the PRC. Apart from this, the Chinese are rapidly embracing Russian Innovative technology means the exchange of spices with Russia. A role in the development of new Russian defense technology plays and industrial espionage. Report SIPRI thoroughly covers the topic.

For example, the report mentions the claim of the Russian Federation regarding the new Chinese fighter J-11B, copied, as is usually the case in China, with the Su-27SK. Representatives of the Russian military-industrial complex have advanced their Chinese partners and other claims. For example, there was a scene with the aviation engine RD-93, installed on Chinese fighter aircraft JF-17 (FC-1). Here the situation was in violation of Chinese export-re-export procedures, as the market standard in Asia and Africa Chinese fighter JF-17 and J-10 (with engines RD-93) began to be konkurentnst Russian MiG-29.

The report referred to SIPRI and the spy scandal with the Crimean complex yarn, which is a unique set of training military pilots in the implementation of take-off and landing on the deck of aircraft carriers with the introduction of a springboard. Of course, this development has been made yet in the Russian period. The Chinese got hold of secret technology documentation for the construction of the complex completely free of charge.

According to the views of the creators of the SIPRI report, representatives of the Russian military-industrial complex apprehension about a possible copying Russian technology the Chinese can not be called groundless, but for all that, they fear not lead to progress. Experts believe that Russia must find ways to deepen cooperation between the infrastructure industry sectors 2-states and not isolate itself from China. For example, the report argues that China will receive the latest Russian technology, for example, IL-476, which is scheduled to release in 2012, the Su-35 and C-400.

Strengthening the supply of finished weapons, even more so, the arms, is a Innovative products, stupid and nekompitentno. Quite obvious that our homeland should actively develop the licensed technology for the creation of military areas of China.

The report SIPRI Underlining the fact that the Russian-Chinese strategic cooperation is a very strong phenomenon in international politics. It contains both the military and political cooperation, and joint military exercises and exchange of educational officer, and, of course, promising military-technical cooperation.

Ability to strengthen the strategic partnership 2-states in the military-technical sphere and deepen its infrastructure is very broad. Our homeland and its military-industrial complex, with an experienced management process, can only benefit from it.
