Global Network reporter Wang Huan reported that the Japanese government has formally adopted a new “National Defense Program Outline”, the content requirements will increase the number of naval submarines, in order to “strengthen the waters southwest part of the island’s defense capability.” . Japanese media have commented on this, a Chinese nuclear submarine was a breakthrough, “US-Japan warning network”, which led to the introduction of Japan’s defense ministry aimed at China’s new “National Defense Program Outline” and “an important opportunity.”
Japan’s “Sankei Shimbun” said December 31, according to Japanese government sources, in February 2009, the Chinese navy’s nuclear submarine had “breakthrough” to connect in Kyushu, Japan – China Taiwan – the Philippines’ first an island chain “in Miyako Island, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan, and with that sail between the islands of the country. The article said that the Chinese navy “successfully break through the US-Japan alert network” causing the U.S. and Japanese governments, “bitter blow”, causing the two countries strengthened against the Chinese nuclear “warning efforts”; this is also the Japanese government in the new “National Defense Program Outline “write on” increasing the number of submarines, the waters southwest of the island to strengthen the defense, “and so an” important opportunity. ”
The article said that a successful break through the “first island chain” of a Chinese nuclear submarine is likely to be “has been violated Japan’s territorial waters,” the Chinese Navy, “Han” class nuclear submarines. Aboard the submarine when departing the U.S. military communications satellite Discovery, the U.S. military submarine and anti-submarine patrol aircraft from the Sea of ??Japan (P3C) also went to a “tracking and monitoring”, but “US-Japan warning network” eventually the Chinese Navy nuclear submarine, “without leaving any traces breakthrough” in history “is the first time.”
“Sankei Shimbun” The article also said, in the East China Sea to the Sea of ??Japan from nuclear submarines to China to “Discovery” and “Weizhui” additional and more specialized vessels, with anti-submarine patrol aircraft (P- 3C), in waters surrounding Japan has adopted a “airtight” and “defensive posture.” However, due to skyrocketing international oil prices at that time, the patrol aircraft from the Sea of ??Japan “intends to reduce the number of flights,” reduced “monitoring point.” However, the Chinese side of the investigation and has successfully from ships and patrol aircraft to the Sea of ??Japan (P-3C) for a position, found a “US-Japan warning network” and “vulnerability”, “US-Japan first island chain” is a smooth Chinese nuclear submarine “break.”
The article said that the ship was a Chinese nuclear submarine was Discovery’s departure from Qingdao, China, but not able to detect it sailed the waters of Guam, “whereabouts.” As Miyako and Yonaguni Island and the waters are not suitable for large-scale between the submerged nuclear-powered submarines, the Chinese navy’s “successful breakthrough” may have been the submarine topography of the area “well known”, “Chinese Navy also is likely to further increase the nuclear submarine mute capability. ”
that a Chinese nuclear submarine successful in breaking the “US-Japan first island chain”, the Sea of ??Japan since then the use of anti-submarine patrol aircraft (P3C) enhance the Chinese navy’s “monitor”, the U.S. military and to able to collect the radiated noise characteristics of a Chinese nuclear submarine, specifically into the “no time” audio tracking ship. It is reported that the US-Japan Okinawa, Japan, along the trench line is still important “water channel” for the Chinese navy submarine deployment trends, “underwater listening arrays”, further strengthened the Chinese navy’s “surveillance.”
“Sankei Shimbun” The article also said, in March 2009, the U.S. military’s “no time” audio tracking ship in the waters of Hainan Island, China, the Chinese navy to “monitor”, the Chinese fishing boat was surrounded. Chinese navy in the waters of Hainan Island, the construction of related facilities on the U.S. military’s “no time” tracking ship’s sonar sound to “serious interference”, the degree of Sino-US relationship has become “tense.”
“US-Japan first island chain” is the United States and Japan for the Chinese navy set of so-called “defensive line.” In the “first island chain”, the U.S. and Japan hopes that by 2010 to ensure that the “sea.” In addition, the United States and Japan in 2020 so that the “defense line” to connect Japan to further expand the Izu Islands – Guam, Saipan line, and called the “second island chain in the U.S. and Japan.” The article also claims that the Chinese navy in the Japanese island of Okinawa – Miyako Island line “frequent activities” is likely to be interested in the west of Miyako Island, Japan’s territory “separation.” Japanese government also had the same view.
