India said the Chinese DF-21 ballistic missile technology will be used DF-31/41
Chinese DF-31 strategic missile warhead
LONDON August 10: India’s “Asian Age” reported on the 6th China is through technology and innovation combined DF-21 anti-ship ballistic missile test in 1800 km against the enemy at sea side the ability to ship, once the trial is successful, the concept of sea power will be rewritten, because the Chinese DF-21 can use the technology to a range of anti-ship of 8,000 km and 14,000, respectively, in the Dongfeng 31 and Dongfeng -41 above the long-range ballistic missiles.
recently, the outer edge of China’s territorial waters and adjacent waters in a series of conditions (at the U.S. Naval exercises in the Sea of ??Japan, the Chinese navy in the South China Sea’s arms fire training), again highlighting the strength of the sea importance in the Asia Pacific region. A few weeks ago, the U.S. Navy and other countries in the Asia-Pacific region held a large-scale exercises, and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to South China Sea territorial disputes, international, this is because global trade pass through the waters.
reported that the widespread belief that in order to become a maritime power must have the following seven “necessary condition”: a large area of ??land, large population, control of maritime trade route location, at least two coastlines, science and technology industry , seafaring traditions and national interests of the government in developing the political will of sea power.
Although these seven “necessary condition”, the three are not available in China, but China is working to overcome these weaknesses. First, China has never been with sailing tradition, but it is fast learning, and is now the crew has been driving China Merchant, trawlers and ships sailing in the world’s oceans. Second, although China and the Yellow Sea through sea trade, but by the impact of other modern coastal countries, China can not fully control the maritime trade routes. Third, China has only one east of the coastline, and its access to the Pacific will be Korea, Japan, Taiwan and the Philippines “hinder.” In addition, the Chinese need to go through the south into the Indian Ocean waters near Vietnam, and then through the Singapore – Malacca, Sunda and Lombok Straits choke. Almost 90 percent of China’s oil needs by imports from West Asia and Angola’s oil to meet, and in the event of war, those who need transportation choke points through the Indian Ocean will be impassable.
However, to become the world’s maritime powers, China has taken the following measures: in the ongoing maritime reconnaissance and targeting the “enemy” ships of the test, Beijing policy integrated use of technology and innovation tools; far distance attacks, China is developing with a terminal guidance system, a range of 1,800 kilometers of land-based DF-21 ballistic missiles. Once the DF-21 of the trial is successful, the concept of sea power will be rewritten, because China may be followed by a range of 8,000 km and 14,000 km DF-31 missiles east -41, a similar test. Beijing Government through the combined use high-frequency “sky wave” remote “over the horizon radar” for missile target data, and the use of domestic satellites for reconnaissance, communications and navigation data.
reported that China is working to make the South China Sea and East China Sea as its territorial waters to try to control the activities of international shipping, while the exploitation of mineral, oil and fisheries wealth. May 16, 2009, China does not Guyue Nan on traditional fishing rights protests in the South China Sea “summer fishing ban order”, and sent the vessel to ensure that this policy was enforced. January 5, 2010, China announced a number of disputed South China Sea and the uninhabited islands for tourism development package. February 9, 2010, China announced a new discovery in the South China Sea oil and gas deposits, and China in the East China Sea has a similar “discovery” that Japan asked the International Maritime Court to intervene. April 13, 2010, a team of 10 Chinese warships and submarines of the small fleet, after Japan and Okinawa, Miyako Island, between the international waters, to the southeast of the Pacific exercise (July 4, 2010, 2 Chinese warships and repeat such acts). June 30, 2010, China announced that the PLA Navy in the East China Sea for a six-day live-fire exercises.
has $ 2.5 trillion foreign exchange reserves of China’s growing South Asian and African coastal countries in investment, in order to protect its maritime trade routes, to avoid the cruise through the coast of Malacca, Sunda and Lombok. In accordance with its “string of pearls” policy, China is not only to assist the construction of Gwadar port in Pakistan, but India’s neighbors are three ports. In Sri Lanka, China is investing in construction of Hambantota Port and the nearby Mattala International Airport, both projects were completed in 2015. In Bangladesh, Chittagong China’s investment in the construction of two deep-water wharf in the vicinity to build a new harbor. These terminals and new port will be with China in Kunming road and oil pipeline connected to, and will pass through Myanmar. Similarly, deep-water port of Sittwe in Myanmar is also built by the Chinese investment, but also through the road and oil pipeline connected with Kunming, China. Chinese investment in Angola and Tanzania also similar facilities.
Chinese think-tank has also suggested the United States in 2009, said China has deployed aircraft carrier around 2015, the U.S. Navy can “take care” of the eastern waters of Hawaii, and the Chinese Navy is responsible for “care” waters of the Pacific remaining and the Indian Ocean region. Chinese nuclear submarines also invest, to help improve the PLA’s next “two-ocean deployment capabilities.” However, with 1197 islands of India has become a maritime power in the six required conditions. India just needs to strengthen its naval forces in accordance with their interests and demonstrate the use of sea power to the apparent political will. New Delhi, the Government should bear in mind the building needs of maritime power after several generations, but also to its national prosperity and security there is a direct relationship.
