U.S. media said the Taiwan Hsiung Feng 3 missile can not effectively killing the mainland carrier
Taiwan’s Hsiung Feng III supersonic anti-ship missile display
LONDON August 14 news: The Wall Street Journal reported that on August 10, mainland China’s first aircraft carrier in the sea trial the same day, the public display in Taiwan its latest anti-ship cruise missiles – “Treasures -3.” The missile brochure is a background pattern and the mainland “Kuznetsov” was very similar to the aircraft carrier burst into flames after a missile attack was the scene. Obviously, it implies is that Beijing is Taipei’s new aircraft carrier after the missile hit the scene. This indicates that the missile which will be regarded as a Taipei for Beijing’s “aircraft carrier killer.” However, defense experts believe the missile may not be able to constitute a destruction of the mainland carrier threat.
reported, announced, “Treasures III” missile this year’s Taipei Aerospace and Defense Exhibition preview part of the project. However, despite the discussion related to the outside world has been the “Hsiung Feng-3″ as Beijing ships and aircraft carriers as a potential threat, but they never described the missile as an anti-aircraft weapons. The defense experts also played down the missile rather bland appearance, questioned the ability of its anti-aircraft carrier, claiming that the Beijing government is unlikely to be the “Hsiung Feng-3″ as a greater threat.
this, Taiwan’s former “deputy defense minister,” Lin said he thought the show which missiles Taipei, Taiwan there is a lot of people’s concerns: Beijing and Taipei, the growing military imbalance gradually led to the Taipei people’s concerns. From Beijing’s defense spending growing view in the past two decades, Beijing’s military has gained leaps and bounds. At the same time, the leaders of Taipei Ma Ying-jeou to allow defense spending due to the recent decline to below 3% of GDP, while the accusations by the persons concerned.
Lin said: “Public” Hsiung Feng-3 ‘is likely to be considered for internal consumption, its Beijing has no meaning. Actually, the Beijing government may be more willing to see this situation as they want to re-elected Taiwan leader Ma Ying-jeou, Taipei and Taiwan, this move is just to tell the voters, Ma Ying-jeou, Taipei’s defense did not relax the government. “In addition, Lin also pointed out that he believes Beijing will not use its aircraft to threaten Taiwan, which is Because the deployment to the Pacific or the South China Sea aircraft carrier battle group’s move will cause excessive stimulation.
However, many other analysts do not think so, they said the Beijing declaration of sovereignty in the Asia Pacific region, and appeared more confident, but Beijing is also developing new defense capabilities to help achieve its sovereignty declaration. Some analysts believe that the potential conflict with Taiwan, Beijing’s aircraft carrier battle groups to prevent interference from Washington and Taipei, an important deterrent to enhance the mainland air base capability: The base is located along the coast of Hualien in eastern Taiwan, Taipei, most of the F- 16 aircraft are deployed there.
However, it is undeniable that China’s growing maritime power, balance of power in the Asia Pacific region will have a potential impact, and cause for concern. However, taking into account the recent years, Ma Ying-jeou’s efforts to thaw the cross-strait relations, Taiwan show the tough new weapons move is a bad fit.
reported that Taiwan’s “Ministry of National Defense,” 10 that Taipei will not immediately available for comment, but will be 11 for a statement showing the weapon. Reported that, regardless of the Taipei show whether the new weapons and moves with a warning of the intention, but this at least shows the potential confrontation between Taipei intends to challenge Beijing. Although owned by Beijing, Taipei does not have the advanced technology, such as Beijing Zhuhai Air Show in 2010 demonstrated the attack on the U.S. aircraft carrier of the UAV, but the Taipei show, “Treasures III” missile, Beijing will also have some impact.
