British media said Kuznetsov will make China a more dominant maritime dispute

BBC reported June 14, the South China Sea maritime arms race in progress around the country, China is rapidly developing its strong military capabilities, which can help it improve the delivery away from their ability to coast.
British media said, The Chinese Navy has been dominant in the region. One day, many of its new system will be able to “threaten” the U.S. Navy’s dominance in the region. Many of China’s neighbors are worried about, especially in Vietnam and the Philippines, and China’s national long-standing maritime dispute. U.S. Naval War College, a China expert Andrew – Eriksson (Andrew Erickson), Ph.D., said, “China does not lead to war, but to use its growing military strength of its core national interests are harmful to the actions of deterrence, in order to achieve the purpose is not to win. “which, three of China’s strategic weapons is expanding the scope of a symbol. Later, China’s first aircraft carrier will begin sea trials; end of last year, Beijing’s new prototype stealth fighter F -20 photos posted online; U.S. military experts believe that China has already begun deploying the world’s first move to crack down on the sea ship-range ballistic missiles.
Eriksson Dr. pointed out that China’s military capabilities to the present has focused on the development of regional anti-access and area denial strategies. And this strategy depends in part on the development of reliable weapons systems, which in Washington to intervene, set its aircraft carrier battle group in danger.
aircraft carrier killer
British media said China has deployed a formidable missile, and other coastal targets to blow away their weapons. In these weapons among the wind-21D anti-ship missile is very unique; it is a way to strike at U.S. aircraft carrier battle group land-based missile system, and aircraft carrier battle group has been the cornerstone of U.S. naval forces. Dongfeng-21D (West called the CSS-5) launched from a wheeled truck on a range of over 1,500 kilometers. It is equipped with a self-propelled warhead, can the Chinese have the ability to ship against the Western Pacific. U.S. officials and China Taiwan’s “National Security Secretary,” confirmed that China has begun to deploy wind-21D. One can easily understand, why China would like to equip such a missile; is to prevent the U.S. Navy to intervene when something happens in the Taiwan Strait.
F-15 “Flying Shark” mother ship
British media said, after the battle of the Pacific since World War II, has been the delivery carrier the primary means of naval power. U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups by a large flight deck of aircraft carrier, as well as a variety of different tasks for the aircraft components. While several aircraft carriers are equipped with every other warships and submarines, to protect them. Now, China also joined the race to the carrier, although the move to run for a long time. China bought from Ukraine, former Soviet Union during the “Kuznetsov” aircraft carrier, and its a lot of renovation and modification.
British media said that China’s first aircraft carrier will be equipped with the new F-15 “Flying Shark” fighter, its design is similar to the Russian Su-33 fighter. “Aviation Week” that China could gain from a Su-33 prototype Ukraine. According to reports, the carrier will begin sea trials this summer. Once used in combat, it will enable China to significantly enhance the Navy’s ability to continue to heat up with the neighbors, take greater advantage of the sea disputes. However, Western experts believe that the carrier will largely for training purposes. Aircraft carrier battle needs to be founded on long-term training experience. The carrier can not deploy the flight distant aircraft, it also reach the U.S. aircraft carrier air force command level.
British media said that China is steadily developing land-based aircraft; Traditionally, it is equipped with a large number of former Soviet jet fighter China-made models. However, exposure of adult fly F -20 fighter making China the very few able to make the country the fifth-generation stealth fighter. Last January, the U.S. Defense Secretary Robert – Robert Gates visited Beijing a few hours later, it was a coincidence -20 F to carry out its first flight.
International Institute for Strategic Studies in London, Douglas – Barry (Douglas Barrie), said China’s F -20 fighter and the United States can not be compared to similar aircraft. But he admitted: “This marks China in the development of fighter aircraft capability, and defense aerospace industrial base of ambition.” However, numerous questions still surrounding the project. Barry said: “At present, it is unclear whether it really is F -20 fighter prototype, or technology demonstrator; which will to some extent determine the speed of China serving the aircraft.” He believes that the aircraft in service about a decade time. By then, the U.S. has deployed hundreds of fifth-generation fighter, the F -20 what that strategy is the point?
Barry believes that a large number of F -20 fighter will be equipped with other regional powers and the United States constitute a growing Asia-Pacific military challenges. However, the experts agreed on the Chinese military equipment in view there is a significant leap forward cautiously. Senior U.S. military is closely watching China’s military development, a sign of the future of China is written; but the short term, it still can only envy the United States naval forces.
