U.S. report says China to develop long-range attack ability of the U.S. aircraft carrier
aircraft carrier battle group to imagine being the zenith attack graph
BEIJING, March 5 news: U.S. Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, introduced in February entitled “Why fight air, sea war,” the report said China believes that once the Taiwan Strait, or East Asia conflict, the United States is bound to launch the first air and missile attacks to interfere. To this end, the armed forces over the years China has been trying to develop anti-close/regional blockade capabilities, and strive to develop in mainland China to attack from the 1000-1600 sea miles of the U.S. aircraft carrier capability.
report, to defeat the U.S. military, China will need to pre-emptive military (including to carry out attacks), attacks on U.S. theater ports and airports, and aircraft carrier operations in the theater, a large surface warships, logistics and transport ships , U.S. combat forces and support network. In addition, China may also need to take enforcement measures, intended to force U.S. allies refused to allow U.S. forces use their bases.
In fact, as making the U.S. unable to land close to their front-line base, the PLA has deployed opposite Taiwan and the Second Artillery Corps, about 1100 mobile, short-range ballistic missiles, and is an annual 100′s speed increases the number of missiles. In addition, it is believed China has also recently developed a new generation of missiles – range increases, the accuracy improved, and capable of carrying warheads and projectiles, including single, including a variety of conventional load.
present, China is also increasing the number of one-way trajectory, the range of about 1000-3000 km in between, and also improving their navigation system to protect those outside the chain of islands located in the second base, where the United States is shaping its Andersen Air Force Base and the naval facilities in Guam, which will cause there to play a key front-line base of operations. China’s missile systems capable of carrying such a large number of conventional ammunition and weapons of mass destruction. Moreover, they might be able to effectively fight against network attacks, such as the use of nuclear weapons manufacture of electromagnetic pulse.
report pointed out that China is to modernize its long-range aviation forces. Modernization of the PLA Air Force FB-7A fighter-bombers such as F-10 has been added and other multi-purpose Su-30MKK combat attack aircraft as well. In addition, the Air Force is also upgrading its H-6 bomber fleet, to enable them to mount a new long-range cruise missiles.
pass for the Chinese DF-21 anti-ship missile being developed by a special warhead
reports that throughout the Cold War, the U.S. Navy has deployed its ships, the ability to protect their own interests, confident; even in the Soviet submarine threat to use force and to deploy long-range bombers destroyed the U.S. military action, Washington is still the performance was very confident. After the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the United States surface warships of the action to proceed unhindered. However, since 1996 Taiwan crisis, China has been blocking the U.S. fleet in addition to the second island chain.
which is most disturbing is the United States designed to destroy U.S. aircraft carriers in China killer weapons and methods of warfare. It is noteworthy that the Soviet Union during the Cold War anti-aircraft carried out the work, so benefited China – China won the upgraded Russian-made anti-aircraft weapons. In view of the PLA has received a purchase anti-aircraft weapon priority, so they put a goal-setting for the People’s Liberation Army: The U.S. aircraft carrier-based aircraft to arrive prior to the effective attack range of these aircraft to attack and loss of mobility.
report noted that China and the PLA Navy strategists, the most attractive of the “killer” is able to attack from mainland China 1000-1600 sea miles of the U.S. aircraft carrier capability. Which relates to the Soviet Union during the Cold War on the platform, such as submarines, anti-ship cruise missiles and attack aircraft, and the PLA also increased their military capabilities. Perhaps, in the People’s Liberation Army to install new anti-aircraft weapons, the most notable is its anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM).
2004, the Office of Naval Intelligence report shows that China’s anti-ship ballistic missile capability embodied in the DF-21 medium-range ballistic missile, a variant version. DF-21 is China’s new generation of road mobile, solid-fuel missiles of the improved version, it has a quick launch feature, to participate in “hit and run” actions to improve the durability of the system. DF-21′s combat range of more than 1100 sea miles, can carry a self-propelled warhead re-entry (MaRV), can be equipped with active and passive radar seeker.
report said, despite China in the development of the missile in the process, met a lot of technical obstacles, but some experts still believe that China has completed the DF-21 anti-ship ballistic missile operational test. In addition, other reports indicate that China is currently the development of this missile warheads a special dispenser, which uses non-explosive armor-piercing arrow-shaped cluster, aimed at destruction of aircraft by the collision kinetic energy. In addition, China is also developing high-power microwave warhead, designed to make use of the electromagnetic pulse of the enemy’s naval radar can not function properly. This warhead could make China “destroy” the aircraft carrier.
reported that Chinese anti-ship ballistic missile programs and its ground to ground missiles to the United States and its allies have the advantage of asymmetry, but this advantage is still growing. This stems from two factors: first, in 1987, “Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty” prohibits the production or deployment of the United States and the Soviet Union in the 500-5500 km range ballistic missiles. China is not a party, not limited to this. Second, U.S. allies in the region and the future deployment of such missiles, and no plans to deploy such missiles.
address anti-ship guided missile Road ISR system problems remains a challenge
can be sure of is that even if China has launched anti-ship ballistic missiles, reentry vehicles still need to lock the target sighting system. Address anti-ship guided missile Road ISR (reconnaissance, surveillance and tracking) component issues a challenge to the PLA.
reported that China is developing or deploying maritime surveillance and targeting systems for the detection in the larger context of U.S. warships and provide targeting information. These systems include backscatter over the horizon radar (OTH-B), over the horizon to land-based radar (OTH-SW) and electro-optical satellites and radar satellites.
It is reported that Chinese engineers are developing fifteen different satellites, for image detection, electronic and signals intelligence collection, navigation, communications and weather forecasting. China is deploying advanced imagery and reconnaissance satellites, including remote sensing -1, -2, -3, -4 and -5, marine and CBERS-2-1B and-2B satellite. China also plans to produce 8 for the “environment” of the satellite project, to be visible, infrared, multispectral and synthetic aperture radar imaging.
addition to satellite-based carrier detection system, the China is also developing a new ground radar system is a long, mainly OTH-B High Frequency (HF) radar. Modern technology and data processing capabilities to make this radar network for the Chinese anti-ship ballistic missiles and other carriers to provide targeting information to attack the system. For example, Australia’s “Jindalee” sky wave OTH-B Radar System In an ideal world, you can distinguish the 1600 sea miles away in the fast moving aircraft carrier-class goals. With this system of space and OTH-B HF radar combination, the U.S. aircraft carrier to enter the second island chain, there is very dangerous.
addition to the use of Soviet anti-aircraft measures, the People’s Liberation Army also appears to use maritime patrol aircraft and submarines, on the high seas “stalking” the U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups and task forces.
In short, in any conflict, the PLA will try to paralyze the United States use its military bases in the Asia Pacific region to launch attacks, such as Kadena Air Force Base, Guam Andersen Air Force Base. PLA Second Artillery Force will launch a ballistic missile barrage of these base attacks, followed closely by the People’s Liberation Army Air Force air strikes. Witnessed these attacks is the U.S. military bases within the aircraft, runways, taxiways, fuel and ammunition storage and maintenance facilities. Chinese anti-ship ballistic missiles, anti-ship cruise missiles and attack aircraft in the Western Pacific of the U.S. surface warships to launch similar attacks. These actions will be complemented by the PLA Navy’s submarine torpedo attack. At the same time, China’s air defense missiles and interceptor will try to attack to win its regional air superiority. By the Chinese anti-satellite warfare and network attacks, in which attack the U.S. or the survival of reinforcements rushed to the battlefield only inefficient operations
As the ancient Chinese military theorist Sun Tzu said, soldiers surgery extreme is the “no war and drive the soldiers.” Clearly, the PLA will apply this philosophy to A2/AD (anti-intervention/regional block) network construction which – The network is designed to west Pacific, the U.S. power projection operations, the costs to the high level, thereby prevent the U.S. to honor commitment to the regional allies of the defense of any effort.
