According to the U.S. “New American” magazine reported on 22 February, known as China’s “aircraft carrier killer” of the DF-21D missile fired from the hundreds of kilometers away, in the the largest U.S. defense preparations well before the aircraft carrier fleet, the rapid destruction of U.S. aircraft carrier.
In fact, U.S. defense analysts suggest, the new east-21D missile has a strong power, is likely to break the balance of power in Asia, the United States. From the end of World War II to the present, the U.S. aircraft carrier battle group has dominated the oceans. After the Chinese army after several years of military modernization, and constantly improve their combat effectiveness, and actively develop high-tech weapons.
according to the Associated Press reported that the military experts believe that wind-21D missile is a “China stop the U.S. aircraft and warships into its territorial waters constitutes a key strategy.” China’s strategic plan includes “interactive multi-air defense system, advanced submarines, advanced ballistic missile systems, and compatible with the satellite network system.”
security plan for Asia-Pacific director of the Patrick – Cronin (Patrick Cronin), said, “China’s new anti-ship missiles, particularly wind-21D missile emergence represents a capability, even after the Cold War, China became the first U.S. Navy to stop military involvement with the country, And China has a purpose for the design and development related. “
However, according to the Associated Press reported that the U.S. Seventh Fleet commander, Vice Admiral Scott – Van – Jacobs Cork (Scott Van Buskirk), “said U.S. Navy U.S. Navy is not worried that the weapons would be the crown jewel – a mortal blow to the aircraft carrier.”
Van – Jacobs Cork told the Associated Press said, Chinese media have boast wind-21D missile’s range at between 1,800 to 2,800 km, the Chinese military had been deployed weapons systems. He said: “This does not explain our weaknesses in the Navy or aircraft carrier, the only Chinese there is a weapons system and a technology only.”
some military defense analysts believe, wind-21D type precision strike missiles have the ability to be well-protected targets, such as the U.S. military’s “George – Washington” aircraft carrier. The Associated Press reported that “As the speed of the reasons for the missile from launch to hit the target, during which the aircraft or other large ships do not have enough time to prepare defense; therefore can pass through the U.S. missile defense system, which is likely to Washington intervention seriously weakened the ability of potential conflicts in Asia Pacific, will also prevent the U.S. warships close to 18,000 km around China coast in international waters. “
the same time, Van – Jacobs Cork General also acknowledged that new technology U.S. defense posture has become one of the issues to consider. He said that on the missile’s performance to be further confirmed, this is only pointed out the potential for many years, “changer,” one of them.
reported that the Chinese seem to believe that benefit from the region. April 2010, the East China Sea between China and Japan as the ownership of several islands into a fierce diplomatic row. U.S. Navy fleet in the region within the scope of regular patrols. Result, China has sent a fleet consisting of 10 warships, did not notice in the case of Japan’s military intentions, the fleet passing through the Miyako Strait. Subsequently, the Chinese aircraft carrier to sail on the Korean Peninsula to the United States issued a warning. Experts to China to Japan and the United States as a deterrent, its display of naval forces, as well as in the area “water test” case; All this indicates that China will continue to develop its long-term strategic goal to control the region.
Nevertheless, the United States still does not plan to change their mission, Van – Jacobs Cork said: “The United States will continue as it deems necessary area, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, the fleet stationed in the surrounding area in view The arms (east-D21) is also not implemented on the battlefield, we will not change our actions, but we will carefully monitor, to adapt to the impact of weapons on us. “
Fox News quoted U.S. Naval War College Associate Professor Yoshiwara Jun wells (ToshiYoshihara) the view that China’s missile technology is frightening, but also a threat to the U.S. military presence in Asia. China must continue to improve its overall technological strength, so the missile can reach expert design requirements: speed up to 10 times the speed of sound to destroy an aircraft carrier traveling at the coastline. Jun Yoshihara well said: “wind-21D should be equipped with multi-sensors, including over-the-horizon radar, missiles targeted to help, and facing the Pacific Ocean through the air and satellite sensors to lock a target.” Yoshihara Jun wells on Fox News said: “China needs more time to improve the accuracy of the missile, which can threaten U.S. aircraft carrier fleet in the Pacific? My answer is we do not know.” Although the carrier is a huge goal, but it is in the vast Pacific constantly moving, while we are talking about a missile warhead to fly 10 times the speed of sound; how do we control the accuracy of it?
article said, the mainland media have mentioned, in addition to the “aircraft carrier killer” – Dongfeng -21 D missiles, the Chinese military is also “in the study of new conventional missiles, and in the next five completed equipment. “
According to reports, China’s largest missile manufacturer – China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation” in 2015, to complete new missile research, manufacturing and distribution work will be a new missile a three-dimensional defense system in part through the system can complete defense and attack, and the response from land, sea, sky, space and electronic warfare threats posed. “(Adams-year)
