Taiwan media said the mainland is greater than the deterrent effect of anti-aircraft missile combat

for Living in the Chinese “anti- aircraft missiles, “Taiwan” strategist “magazine recently on the possible mode of warfare and military value of some review. The article said that despite the manufacture of such weapons do not exist technical obstacles, but for attacks on U.S. aircraft carrier or lead to escalation of concerns about its deterrent effect is greater than the actual meaning.
U.S. troops focused their attention on China’s missile test
international military observers generally believe that China’s anti-aircraft missile is based on the DF-21 missiles to active duty basic research, and its launch weight of 15 tons up and down a range of 1200-2000 km. Computer simulations show that such direct the missile though unlikely to sink an aircraft carrier, but enough to make it the loss of combat effectiveness. Some U.S. experts have pointed out, China addition to installing anti-aircraft missile warheads outside the ordinary, but also carry temperature and pressure, and electromagnetic pulse warhead, called an effective means of repression.
to note that the full anti-aircraft missile project far beyond the several missiles, but a reconnaissance, communications, command, operations complex system consisting of four parts. In recent years, the limited information from the public point of view, supporting projects from the 1990s had to proceed, and the use of more mature technology, so there is no hard to break through the technical bottleneck.
Having said that, as a very sophisticated weapons, anti-aircraft missiles, after numerous tests still need to deploy combat before. Up to now, the U.S. monitoring system to capture the Chinese side has not been tested for signs.
September this year, U.S. Pacific Commander Admiral Willard said, the PLA in the past 10 years, amazing progress, especially in its ongoing development of anti-aircraft missiles, the U.S. military need to take early measures to counter system. U.S. Naval War College Professor Yoshihara Jun wells is that, in order to effectively combat aircraft, China needs to address three specific issues: First, to-the-horizon radar locks onto the target; second, with AWACS aircraft positioning; Third, the satellite reconnaissance and guided missiles. Fully meet these conditions, at least another 10 years.
proactive attitude with the United States is different from most of Taiwan’s media still do not believe that mainland China can develop such complex weapons systems. In their view, “anti-aircraft missiles,” they do not test, it can not eliminate the doubt.
psychological deterrent to stress release techniques
can not be avoided is that the U.S. nuclear aircraft carrier is itself the projection platform, the Chinese anti-aircraft missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads, as a “quasi” strategic weapons, not just from the tactical level assessment. As the United States, “Defense News” magazine has pointed out, the use of such missiles to attack aircraft carriers, the United States will be difficult to judge the true intentions of the Chinese; panic and indecision may result in the United States on the “suspected nuclear strike” over-react, even the use of nuclear weapons, fight back .
is the danger of triggering a nuclear war, anti-aircraft missiles to the Chinese use of the restrictions imposed by the invisible. On the one hand, the U.S. aircraft carrier battle group is a threat to China’s strategic interests, China must have the ability to balance the threat; other hand, the United States meet the sword may lead to escalation of the war, to the prosperity of Asia constitute a breach, for any one any good. So, how to grasp the edge of the walking-scale conflict, in particular, require a subtle understanding reached by the parties.
article said that China, in the development of the ability of combat aircraft, but also the conditions should be advised to use this ability outside. China should make the outside world to avoid following two false positives: First, the “aircraft carrier can do whatever they want in the coastal waters of China”, the second is “China will be uncontrolled use of anti-aircraft missiles, in case of no good reason to launch a surprise attack.”
article also believe that a country’s military rise will inevitably lead to unrest in neighboring China’s deterrent force is stronger, the use of force by hand to be more cautious. China should carefully study the release of ways and means of deterrence, really “anger from the prestige” rather than “anger without Viagra.”
analysis according to this line of thought, China to develop anti-aircraft missiles, the main intention of the Department “intimidate” the U.S. Navy and the exclusion from the shore than 1000 km, rather than in actual combat aircraft into the sea will . In other words, a greater degree this mysterious weapon is a psychological deterrent means.
