11 of the ground-based midcourse missile tests caused U.S. media attention. 12 issue of the “Washington Times” quoted the U.S. military expert said Fisher’s point of view, China has announced the ground-based midcourse missile interception technology moves very rare, shows that the Chinese in this field has made significant progress. Fisher believes that China may in the mid-2020s to establish a national missile defense system.
Fisher pointed out that China has announced the missile defense test was “very unusual” because basically every week China’s missile test, but rarely made public. The trial was the first to reveal that China is developing anti-missile system.
Fisher said a senior Chinese military officials recently in China’s aviation theory explicitly clear the Air Force to develop “anti-missile mission.” Second Artillery missile defense project is also one of the tasks. Has written and reported about China’s missile defense Fisher said he believes that China will be the mid-2020s to deploy a national missile defense system is important.
In addition, the former U.S. Air Force officials, military experts Shiming Kai (MarkStokes) said that since the late 1980s, China has been investing in technology and ground-based missile defense research and development space surveillance systems. He said: “The current is not clear how China’s missile test is precise and targeted.”
China Federation of American Scientists Military expert Hans Kristensen said that China is clear that, They need to have a certain anti-ballistic missile capability, “while 11 achieved initial success shows that” China’s missile interception technology is mature “.
Pentagon: China’s two different shoot a missile outside the atmosphere collision
China in the 11-day ground-based midcourse missile tests caused great concern the United States, according to the Associated Press reported, the Pentagon said on that day, prior to the Chinese no knowledge of anti-missile test, but said they monitor to the intercept test.
Maureen Schumann said Pentagon spokeswoman said: “We have not received prior notification of missile tests to be carried out. Indeed, we detected (China) from two locations each fired a missile, we are monitoring equipment deployed in outer space is also found outside the atmosphere of the missile impact event. “
she added:” We are asking the Chinese to carry out the intent of this missile intercept test, and want to know their future plans for a variety of interdiction activities. “
U.S. Department of State also stressed that anti-missile test should not be excessive contact with the arms sales to Taiwan.
South Korean media: China’s success in entering the” Star Wars “era
South Korea, “Chosun Ilbo,” 13 published an article that China has developed to intercept ICBMs in Aerospace (ICBM) technology, and the trial is successful, fully into the “Star Wars” era. A week ago, the U.S. Department of Defense announced that it will sell Taiwan “Patriot missile defense system.” The report also mentioned that, in the
January 2007 the country had launched anti-satellite missiles successfully intercepted their old weather satellite.
military commentator: launch of interceptor missiles outside the atmosphere two to three hundred kilometers altitude
senior military commentator Ma Dingsheng Comments that the intercept has exceeded the level of HQ-9, because it is in the middle, the middle block is outside the atmosphere, probably two to three hundred kilometers in height, not the general level of air defense missiles tens of kilometers, so this is a try, but also a successful test, though not targeted at any country, but if you want any country to use ballistic missiles against China if it was not only the nuclear counterattack, but also blocked, this is double insurance.

Chinese HQ-9 missile system
HQ-9 air defense China’s Changfeng Electromechanical Technology Missile Research and Design Institute of China’s first research and development of a regional anti-aircraft missiles which the U.S. Patriot missiles and missile order of magnitude model, characterized by destruction airspace large, multi-target anti-jamming and anti-saturation attack capability, guidance system advanced enough to adapt to modern warfare.
U.S. “Patriot” intercept system
“Patriot -3″ (PAC -3) missile system, Lockheed Martin is in the “Patriot” PAC-2 system, based on improved fire control system and through the installation of new PAC-3 missile from a new air defense system , the U.S. currently stepping up development of the TMD system is one of the major, major defense short-range and medium-range ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and aerodynamic targets, mainly by the newly developed kinetic energy interceptors and improved radar and command and control system components.
Russian S-400 air defense missile systems
S-400 “Triumph,” the original diamond surface to air missile system is the Central Design Bureau of Russia in the S-300P’s based on the new design ideas developed it with a new longer range missile and a new phased-array tracking radar, radar coverage to the whole, according to the Russian military said, S-400 in speed, accuracy, etc. are better than the U.S. “Patriot” PAC-3 surface to air missile system, is the world’s best performing air defense missile system.
