Foreign media said the U.S. anti-missile system to build China imitation defense network
The article said China’s Red Flag 9 anti-aircraft missiles with anti-missile capability

Recently, the British “Chinese Defense” website, Canada, “Chinese Defense Review” magazine and other analysts say China is drawing on some of America’s successful practices, the use of advanced equipment and actively respond to ballistic missile threats, protect key domestic goals.
“Red 9″ woven network to intercept
According to reports, the Chinese Air Force has begun volume equipment “red flag” -9 long-range air defense missiles, and actively Foreign sales of its export models to promote one of the highlights is the missile with the Anti-Ballistic Missile capability. According to sources, China has come up in 2008, “Red Flag” -9 participate in the tender of Turkey’s air defense system, China said the missile to intercept ballistic missiles when the effective range of 25 km, 15 km maximum shot high. From the parameters, the “red flag” -9 is a similar to the U.S. “Patriot” anti-missile equipment-2 in the atmosphere.
“Chinese Defense” website analysis, from the “red flag” -9 air defense missile technology equipment performance and speed of the PLA, China “is clearly in its core level to build the theater ballistic missile defense system . ” Prior to the introduction of China’s Russian-made S-300 air defense missiles, although the range with the “Red Flag” -9 quite, but the lack of anti-missile capabilities, can only perform a single air defense mission.
10 month’s issue of “Chinese Defense Review,” is that, similar to the United States, China was the first theater missile defense from the start, this is because the periphery is able to threaten China’s main short-range ballistic missiles, theater missile defense systems on the other hand is the technical complexity of lower development and deployment can reduce the risk, the cost is also affordable.
operational procedures to achieve full automation
analysis, said China is building a missile defense system, the main object of protection is the capital of Beijing as the core of the Bohai Sea economic circle, the future may be extended to other important areas of domestic, such as Shanghai and the Three Gorges Dam.
composition in the anti-missile system, China may take the U.S. theater missile defense system with a similar approach, that is, early warning radars, interceptor missiles, friend or foe identification system as the core, then the satellite data link connection with early warning, anti-missile system to provide the necessary high level of information awareness. However, as China is currently no specific early-warning satellites, so the enemy space forces can only provide the deployment of ballistic movements of troops, can not be used for early warning. Fortunately, a high altitude ballistic missiles, easy to detect, and China’s current early-warning radar equipment in general have found that the ability to target hundreds of kilometers away, can still meet the basic needs of the theater missile defense operations.
in operational procedures, when the early warning radar to intercept enemy positions to pass, the “Red Flag” -9 missile radar system will be based on the information received on the incoming direction of the search target, once captured that is quickly transferred to the target track, and then issued a launch command. After launch the missile, guided by a guidance radar to provide relay until their entry into active radar missile on the scope. Finally, fly to enemy ballistic missiles near the warhead detonated, the fragments flying at high speed to destroy the target. Taking into account the speed of ballistic missiles is very high, for a very short window of time to intercept, so the “Red Flag” -9 missile system is likely to adopt automatic work, to avoid the artificial delay in the transmission of information and intercept time.
According to “China’s defense” web analytics, China plans to build large-scale anti-missile systems, in addition to satellite, radar, long-range air defense missiles, but may also include short-range air defense missiles, fighter planes, antiaircraft guns , early warning aircraft and so on. In a sense, China is attempting to build a missile defense system as an opportunity, will be fully available for air defense weapon systems integration to form a core area for the defense of capital, technology, complex multi-level air and space defense system.
only Chinese anti-missile defense
western China some people build their own anti-missile system pointing, but from a technical perspective, China build anti-missile system with the United States have fundamentally different: First, China’s only deployed anti-missile system in the country to undertake homeland defense mission, and the U.S. anti-missile system deployed not only at home, but also deployed to the territory of its allies, reflects a global hegemony; Second, China’s anti-missile system does not promote the arms race in space, and the U.S. anti-missile system has been committed to the militarization of space, has plans to deploy interceptors in space laser weapons, anti-satellite satellite; again, China built in the United States anti-missile system, and only after development has taken great strides, with obvious defensive nature.
In fact, the United States vigorously in the global day of full-armed anti-missile system, the Western media glorified as “defense of world peace.” China and Russia, based on the local limited anti-missile defense system, was that “undermine regional stability,” This double standard is clearly absurd.
