Chinese carrier-based fighter successfully conducted a series of marine and technological tests on the first Chinese aircraft carrier «Liaoning», which indicates a large success in the development of China’s carrier-based fighters and breakthrough in aircraft carriers.
J-15 resettled with 2 massive engines and most modern high-performance system-lift devices, landing gear and arresting hook. It provides a good folding wing combat capability and meets the requirements of special landing «Liaoning». Thanks bolshennomu combat radius, highest agility and great combat load, J-15 has a full combat effectiveness of the sea and in the air.
Foreign media, particularly Russian, believe that J-15 is a copy of Russian carrier-based fighter Su-33. In this regard, 29 November spokesman for the Ministry of National Defense of China Geng Yanshen (Geng Yansheng) said: «Warfare in the world has an impartial law of development. Many tools have the same design principles, methods of control and protection are also identical. So Makar, draw conclusions that China has copied the technology of aircraft carriers in other states, only the usual comparison — at least, unprofessional.
In 1-x, J-15 has a more sophisticated avionics than the Su-33. Su-33 disconnected resettled outdated avionics standard ARINC429 lopsided low-speed data bus, while the J-15 is equipped with a combined avionics bidirectional data bus ..
Onboard digital computer C-100 Su-33 has a speed of only 170 thousand operations per second, while the computer J-15 has a design speed of calculating several million operations per second.
J-15 has a better radar than the Su-33. Due to outdated avionics systems of Su-33 can only act as an interceptor and not able to use the high-precision weapon of class «air-surface».
On the J-15 introduced advanced materials and production methods, and, as follows, and has a huge strength of the least weight.
In the end, J-15 engines resettled Taihang (WS-10) produced — more powerful than the engines of the Su-33. In general, J-15 is superior to the Su-33 and comparable with world-class carrier-based aircraft, such as the South American F-18 and French Rafale.
