093T special warfare submarine

093T special warfare submarine Reference News Network reported on 17 March 2015 that Hong Kong's "Ming Pao" published an article on Hong Kong military commentator Liang Guodong that China revealed another special-purpose nuclear submarine 093T, indicating that the 093 nuclear submarine has been serialized. This may be a pure fantasy.

The United States has converted four Ohio-class strategic missile nuclear submarines into cruise missiles and special-purpose nuclear submarines. Among them, 22 ballistic missile launchers were modified to load seven Tomahawk cruise missiles per cartridge, and the remaining two launchers were installed. An "Advanced SEALDelivery System" (ASDS), SEAL is the English abbreviation for the SEAL Special Forces, used as a special warfare. Another name for this system is the Dry DeckShelter (DDS), which is simply a docking bunker, referred to as the "docker", used to recycle and release pocket submarines, pocket submarines and nuclear submarines. The sealed hatch is docked and the seals can enter the pocket submarine.

The pocket submarine can carry 9 SEALs, with a maximum range of about 60 nautical miles for secret landings, and then the special combatants attack the enemy's important military facilities, or the (laser-guided) missiles launched to their own fighters indicate the target. The pocket submarine can also sneak into the enemy's military port, release the frogman, attack or destroy high-value targets such as enemy aircraft carriers or strategic nuclear submarines. The pocket submarine is equipped with an advanced compass and navigation system, and some underwater GPS receivers are installed to make underwater navigation and positioning more precise. In addition, it can carry a variety of equipment, including precision positioning equipment for special warfare players, communications equipment, weapons and wild survival equipment.

The role of the Chinese 093T special-purpose nuclear submarine is similar to that of the US military submarine. The range of the submarine and the number of passengers carried by the submarine are also the same as those of the US military. The difference is that the Chinese docking cabin is called the underwater wet carrier receiving cabin. The US submarine docking cabin can accommodate the entire pocket submarine. It can be voyaged globally after closing the dock door. The 093T docking cabin of China can only accommodate two-thirds of the hull of the pocket submarine, so it is called wet and it enters. The docking bay is as simple as the cap over an ink pen.

China's pocket submarine is more similar to the US Mk-8 submersible, can be carried by warships, nuclear submarines, and can also be transported by air. China's pocket submarines are usually carried on warships. They arrive in the target waters and are thrown into the water. They directly infiltrate into the enemy's military port or land to perform missions. This is one of the combat methods. The second type of warfare is first transported by a surface warship and then placed on a nuclear submarine. The special warfare team slides from the helicopter to the nuclear submarine deck into the pocket submarine. The nuclear submarine sneaked into the target area and released the pocket submarine to perform the mission. The third mode of operation is that air can be transported by air to a specific sea area during emergency deployment. In general, the advantage is that the platform is diverse and flexible in use. The special operations team members do not have to live in a narrow nuclear submarine for a long time, resulting in a decline in physical fitness, which is not conducive to combat.

The size of the US-class Ohio-class nuclear submarine is three times that of the 093T submarine. It has enough living space for the special combatants to live and perform physical training. It provides conditions for the special members to live on the nuclear submarine for a long time, but the docking bay cannot be " More than one thing." The docking bay of the China 093T submarine can not only carry a pocket submarine, but also launch and recycle unmanned submarines, deep water detectors, and submersibles with robots. Another type of security model, the Type 093 nuclear submarine, is said to be capable of launching and retrieving unmanned reconnaissance aircraft, and even carrying a larger "Tactical One" drone.

The shape of the 093T and 093B is very close, but it is actually developed by the latter, but it has a better streamlined shape than the latter. It is embodied in the large fillet at the bottom of the shell of the podium, and the upper part of the shell is designed with a circular arc that reduces the resistance in the water. Its "transport boat carrying cabin" is connected with the podium enclosure, and the two smoothly transition, the navigation resistance is small, and the mute effect is good. The two "transportation cabins" of the Ohio-class nuclear submarines are designed side by side and away from the enclosure, which not only increases the navigational resistance, but also generates additional noise.

In addition, the 093T also does not use the 6-blade propeller propulsion mode, instead of the 093 and 093A 7-blade propellers, and the 093B pump-jet propulsion mode (the latter two propulsion methods are recognized as having a stronger mute level), which means the 093T is designed for shallow sea operations. There are a lot of fish nets and water plants floating in the shallow sea. If the pumping propeller is caught in the net, the frogman is also difficult to remove; the 7-blade is too thin and vulnerable to damage to the net, and the 6-blade is more suitable than the former two, and has a good mute performance.
