在隶属于中国空军的“蓝天”网站上出现的一幅图像,显示西安H-6K轰炸机装有两枚带有弹鼻罩的KD-20型"对陆攻击巡航导弹"(LACM):一个迹象它使用光学导引头。资料来源:蓝天网页
 
Key Points
·China may have developed a new optically guided version of the KD-20 land attack cruise missile
·Such a weapon would allow aircraft like the H-6K bomber to conduct attacks from greater stand-off ranges
 
关键点
·中国可能已经开发出了一种新型的光学制导型号的KD-20型"对陆攻击巡航导弹"
·这样一种武器将允许像H-6K型轰炸机这样的飞机从更大的距离范围进行攻击

An image appearing on a People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF)-linked webpage suggests that China has developed a new optical precision-guided version of the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC) CJ-10K/KD-20 land attack cruise missile (LACM).
一张图片出现在中国人民解放军空军(PLAAF)-链接的网页显示,中国已经开发出一种新的光学精确制导版本是中国航天科工集团公司(CASIC)CJ-10K/ KD-20型对陆攻击巡航导弹(LACM)。
 
In mid-July the 'Blue Sky' web page, sponsored by the Society of the People's Liberation Army Air Force, featured an image of a Xian Aircraft Corporation H-6K bomber being loaded with two KD-20 and two YJ-63/KD-63 LACMs in which the KD-20s appear to have a protective cover partially covering their nose. This feature is used on some missiles to protect their optical or infrared (IR) seeker windows while in storage or being loaded.
在七月中旬由中国人民解放军空军协会主办的“蓝天”网页,以西安飞机公司H-6K型轰炸机的形象为特色,携带了两枚KD-20型和两枚YJ-63/KD-63型"对陆攻击巡航导弹"(LACM),其中KD-20型似乎具有部分覆盖其弹鼻的保护罩。某些导弹使用此功能用来在存储或运载时保护其光学或红外(IR)导引头窗口。
 
The PLAAF's possible use of a new terminally guided version of the KD-20, perhaps designated the KD-20A, was first suggested by PLAAF analyst Hui Tong in his English- and Chinese-language blogs. He has also noted that as early as 2013, the PLAAF had upgraded the original 180-200 km-range KD-63 TV-based terminal guidance system with a model based on an imaging IR (IIR) seeker.
中国人民解放军空军可能会使用新的末制导型号的KD-20型,也许指定为KD-20A型,是中国空军分析师Hui Tong在英文和中文博客中首先提出的。他还指出,早在2013年,中国空军就以原有的180-200公里射程的KD-63型电视末端制导系统,以一个基于红外成像(IIR)导引头的模式进行了升级。
 
For guidance, the KD-20 – which is estimated to have a range of 1,500 km – has previously been reported to use an inertial navigation system (INS) aided by a terrain-contour-mapping radar altimeter, and possibly a global navigation satellite system (GNSS). An IIR-seeker-equipped KD-20 could enable the H-6K to conduct strikes from beyond the range of most ground-based air defences.
为了制导,KD-20型-预计射程1500公里-以前被报道使用地形测绘雷达高度计和可能全球导航卫星系统(GNSS)辅助的惯性导航系统(INS)。装备有IIR导引头的KD-20型可以使H-6K能够超出大多数地面防空范围进行攻击。
