January 11, China’s first publicly announced in the territory of a ground-based midcourse missile interception technology, and achieved success. Western media speculation that Chinese anti-missile capabilities, but also speculated that in the United States announced the sale of Taiwan conducted missile tests may be in order, “warned the United States.” However, Chinese experts and analysts have pointed out that China conducted missile tests, has nothing to do with the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan is for China’s defense needs and the development of overall national strategic security concerns, the Western media speculation is clearly “underestimate the Chinese.”
reputation monitoring the Chinese missile test
successful missile test, China to take the initiative of the results, but gave no details. However, advanced early warning system, and focused their attention on China’s military development from the United States has seen “a number of clues.” According to the Associated Press reported that the U.S. Pentagon spokeswoman Maureen Schumann said, “In the (missile) before the launch we have not received notification from the Chinese side, but we did detect (China) from two locations of the launch of a missiles, we deploy the sensors in space to track the missile outside the atmosphere impact event. “
from the United States to disclose information can be inferred that China’s technologically advanced anti-missile test is definitely the” real deal “drill . In this trial from China fired two missiles that information can be seen, one of which may be missiles, another one for the interceptor. Computer simulation shows that the test is not, or just use the radar illumination and tracking, but more mature anti-missile system test. In other words, China’s anti-missile system has been initially have a combat capability. In addition, China in space remote sensing, monitoring and control and missile research and development has already made considerable progress, which China has played a difficult anti-missile technology breakthrough role accumulation.
According to the “Washington Times” disclosed on January 12, Fisher said the U.S. military experts, China announced a ground-based midcourse missile interception technology’s move “very rare” to show in China The area has made a major breakthrough. Fisher infer that China may be in the mid-1920s to establish a national missile defense system.
with the “Patriot” can not be compared
currently deployed or are developing national missile defense system can be divided into: land, sea, air based and space-based (deployed in space) 4 categories, which is the most sophisticated ground-based missile defense system, while China is the land-based missile defense test conducted.
in accordance with China’s current level of military technology and defense needs, the first land-based anti-missile system development is the most sensible choice. According to western media reports and information released by the Chinese military, China’s land-based missile defense system there are basically three options: to mature, “Red Flag” -9 establish air defense missile-based anti-missile system; development of new anti-missile system and special “interceptor missiles”; to create ground-based laser anti-missile weapons.
developed by China’s “Red Flag” -9 air defense missile technology is mature and has mass, can be fitted out large-scale, scale advantages. But “Red Flag” 9 and “Patriot” -3 missiles, mainly used to intercept various targets within the atmosphere, belong to the last paragraph of the anti-missile system, if not improved very difficult to intercept in mid-flight (flight outside the atmosphere) and goals.
Song Xiaojun Chinese military experts also said that China’s middle ground-based missile interceptor system and the “Red Flag” 9 and “Patriot” -3 anti-missile system does not exist comparable. Military analysts have pointed out, if China is carried out outside the atmosphere of this intercept test, it is likely to test new anti-missile systems and dedicated “to intercept the missile.” Another American “Connection” magazine and other media speculation, Xinjiang, China has deployed some of the laser anti-satellite system. If the Chinese laser weapon to “hit the satellite,” then the interceptor missile is not a problem, but the anti-missile laser weapon with high technical difficulty, expensive, might serve as a “future option.”
greatly enhance the level of defense
the past 20 years, China’s air defense system in the building with remarkable results. “Red Flag” series of anti-aircraft missiles and many types of radar ground-based air defense system, a sound, and air marshals -2000 early warning aircraft, air marshals -200 AWACS, J-11 fighter, the F-10 fighter and other advanced equipment, bulk service, the formation of a powerful deterrent air, China’s air defense network has been perfected.
Although China has built a more comprehensive air defense network, but there are still insufficient for ballistic missile defense. Around China has formed a “missile development boom”, in addition to the traditional missile powers Russia, India, Korea and other countries are also actively developing long-range ballistic missiles. India, for example, the country not only developed the “earth”, “Agni” series of missiles, but also actively developing anti-missile system, and tested, the Indian media, academics and some officials have repeatedly said publicly that India’s missile for China. Therefore, the development of anti-missile technology China will raise the level of defense to a higher level it appears reasonable.
nothing to do with the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan
the United States announced the sale to Taiwan “Patriot” -3 anti-missile system soon, China conducted missile tests. In this regard, the Western media have read said it was dissatisfied with the U.S. China shows. British “Financial Times” 13 Journal of the text that the United States approved the sale of Taiwan, China a stern warning to the United States and conducted missile tests, this will aggravate the tension between the two countries. But the Chinese People’s University Professor Jin Canrong that intuitive sense of the anti-missile test China and the United States to sell the “Patriot” 3 missile has nothing to do, because the “Patriot” -3 are defensive weapons, not offensive weapons . Meanwhile, the People’s Liberation Army Major General Luo also pointed out that we solemnly declare that our missiles are not directed against any country, nor against the people of Taiwan, but it is effective to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity of the means of defense.
machine at this time China publicly announced the successful anti-missile test, suggesting perhaps there are some warning, but in general, China is out of the test anti-missile system development needs of China’s national defense and national security strategy overall consideration, not a temporary “show attitude” of the general test, the Western media’s view is clearly “underestimate the Chinese.”
