Chinese PLA Second Artillery Corps, and said the war or to upgrade the space to absorb the space sector

published in Canada in October of this year, “Chinese Defense Review,” published in January, said Wen, the PLA Second Artillery Corps is working on plans to build new combat units, including network warfare forces, psychological warfare units, space warfare units. Among these, the most striking space warfare forces. However, some analysts believe that China has always opposed the militarization of space, even if in the future military space activities and set up the unit, whether it’s attributable to the Second Artillery Corps, is also great uncertainty.
said the Second Artillery Corps, will be transformed versatile
“Chinese and” that, based on “internal documents” interpretation of the Second Artillery Corps in the future may form more support the new force. Among them, the psychological warfare unit building, intended to strengthen the deterrent power of the Second Artillery Corps. Reported that the Second Artillery Command deterrent system built within the Action Plan Coordination Group, is responsible for strategic deterrence. Deterrence methods include: public launch long-range strategic missiles and missile silos of the picture, even as a deterrent has been exposed to silo units, if necessary, to organize visits of foreign military attaches.
The establishment of network warfare units, but also the inevitable trend of development of the Second Artillery Corps. Currently, the Second Artillery’s automated network command system has been realized to its navy and air force command system and networking. Command authority is usually the central data processing computer centers, and communications networks, electronic storage devices, such as information processing and display system networking.
“Chinese and” continue to analyze that, recently, the PLA Second Artillery Corps in the report mentioned the cruise missiles and electronic warfare force strength. This proves that the initial formation of China’s cruise missile combat power, and the new electronic warfare units have been officially compiled, this will inevitably lead to combat innovation –
first deception operations, including the motor position process, the frequent introduction of electronic feint, etc. The purpose is to make the imaginary enemy radio detection system can not really find out the whereabouts of the Second Artillery Corps. Second, the task is to shore attacks. Specifically, the Second Artillery through electronic surveillance, first find out the rival anti-missile system radar frequency, followed by the conventional anti-radiation missile warhead with a new force in the way of the enemy’s radar, radio detection stations, electronic warfare center attack.
star of the future of space warfare forces
The article said that the PLA Second Artillery Corps in the new trends, the most noteworthy is the construction of space warfare forces . Implemented in January this year from China’s anti-missile intercept test in the middle can be inferred, similar to the test mainly by the Second Artillery Corps is responsible.
according to “Chinese and” analysis, the Second Artillery Force established space warfare will have the following functions: incoming ballistic missiles of the enemy, and middle to intercept a strategic early warning, and surveillance satellites and other space kinds of spacecraft, if necessary, space-based assets of enemy action. This requires adding a lot of ground, space-based early warning, reconnaissance, surveillance equipment, and develop anti-missile interceptor system, workload and resources required to invest no less than the formation of a completely new branches.
space force, once settled in the Second Artillery, the Second Artillery will be a set of network warfare, psychological warfare, missile launchers and other high-tech subjects in a “golden arm” and completely become an offensive and defensive strategic forces. By then, the full-time soldiers in the space war space instead of intercontinental ballistic missiles and cruise missiles is expected to become a new bright spot in the Second Artillery Corps.
integrated aerospace combat capability is still big obstacles
Although the “Chinese and” report with certainty, but some people think that China has consistently opposed the weaponization of space given of the position, the Chinese military does not create space warfare, even the establishment of military space activities in the space force, is not likely to be included in the Second Artillery Corps of the establishment. Such as Hong Kong, “Asia Times” earlier this year, once analysis, the Second Artillery Corps to expand both arms of the requirements for innovation, but also because real traction, but can integrate space forces will come, but want to make a big question mark.
In fact, the formation of space warfare forces amazing resource consumption, it needs to build a large number of early-warning radar, developed and developing missile defense systems. Overall, space warfare troops needed a lot of resources, the Second Artillery are now blank. On the contrary, China is responsible for launching satellites and other spacecraft units share more resources, of course, these departments are more willing to form the basis of their belongings as space warfare units. Like America, the Chinese Air Force missile probably want to sort tasks into their own command.
the world, currently has a land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles, the only countries Russia, the United States similar to the Second Artillery Corps is responsible for the Air Force ICBM force, Russia is managed by the strategic rocket troops. The latter is co-located with the Russian space force, sharing a set of command system, but both basically dubious, many times in the history of shifting alliances, we can see the Russian model was not successful. From this perspective, China will be under the jurisdiction of the Second Artillery forces into the space, or space force formed by the Second Artillery Corps, the possibility of an independent nature will be greatly reduced.
