Electronic Weapons: China Discovers How To Identify Aces

China HAS Developed year ACMI (Air Combat maneuvering instrumentation) system for training pilots.Development Began in 2000 and two generations of ACMI pods Have Been Developed for the aircraft Undergoing this training. The current Chinese ACMI system can track a hundred aircraft at once and record all activities Their. The ACMI pods record information of individual aircraft and That Provides a very full record of who did what and when. This was essential to get the MOST out of using your own aircraft for "aggressor (or dissimilar) training." This Involved trainees trained pilots flying against Chinese in the tactics used by potential foes, flying aircraft similar in capabilities of enemy warplanes. The ACMI system allowed for trainee pilots to get detailed descriptions What They did right and wrong and how to fix Their mistakes. This thing not only out of battle Creates better pilots purpose identified who the "naturals" (potential aces) are.

These dissimilar training innovations Began in the 1969 When the U.S. Navy, established the original "Top Gun" fighter pilot school. This was done in response to the poor performance of icts against North Vietnamese pilots flying Russian fighters made using Russian and tactics, with some Vietnamese innovations added. What made the Top Gun operation was different que le training Emphasized how the enemy aircraft and pilots operated, Malthus the term "dissimilar training".

Before the 1969 American pilots innovations Practiced against American pilots, with everyone flying American aircraft and using American tactics. It worked in World War II, Because the enemy pilots Were not getting a lot of practice and using similar aircraft Were and tactics anyway. Most importantly, there was a lot of fighting going on aerial, Providing ample opportunity for on-the-job training. Not so in Vietnam, Where the quite different Russian trained North Vietnamese Were giving U.S. aviators an awful time. The four week Top Gun program solved the problem. The U.S. Air Force Followed Shortly icts with Red Flag school. In the early 1980s, the Russians, established a dissimilar air combat school, and the Chinese Followed in 1987.

The ACMI pods the U.S. Developed in the 1970s and continuous improvement They Have undergone ever since. The pods collect and transmitted to the ground station ACMI aircraft information Which includes speed, altitude, attitude, current G-forces, ascent / descent rate, turn rate, yaw rate, roll rate, engine power, cue missile, rocket cue, cue gun , cue bomb, weapons release points. This last item allows to calculate the ACMI the range, trail, heading of each Stock weapon. In air combat Would this mean simulated gunfire or use of air-to-air missiles. About the time the Chinese Began Their ACMI Developing the U.S. Began Developing methods to do away with the ACMI pod and use the internal data systems on the aircraft to do what the pods HAD beens doing.
