U.S. aircraft carrier decades scholars said that China will not pose a threat to U.S.

LONDON Oct. 29 news: In recent years, high-growth economy, supported by China began to develop strategies to improve their ability to a new generation of military technology. PLA is currently developing a series of series of new weapons systems, make it possible to project power to the high seas and in space. Therefore, many defense analysts believe that China’s future may pose a potential challenge to U.S. security, and drew the United States need to guard against China and the U.S. balance of power changes. However, the U.S. national interest, but the article online reference site 26 Ross
Boston College political science professor Robert S · Ross as saying, either now or in the near future, China is not important to be able to threaten the United States security interests, and the deployment of its aircraft carriers and even serve to increase the strength of the U.S. reaction.
now, China will soon begin construction of its first aircraft carrier. In this regard, Ross argues that a carrier can not substantially improve the Chinese navy’s combat capabilities. Ross said that one or even two aircraft carriers, are not enough to keep China in the long-term military presence in offshore areas. Moreover, the construction of the aircraft with combat capability, the Chinese first need to build a multi-purpose aircraft carrier, but most of the aircraft carrier construction takes several decades.
In addition, Beijing must be made for these carrier-based aircraft construction – rather than relying on Russian imports model. China must also develop advanced C4ISR capabilities, in order to protect its aircraft carrier, and positioning the U.S. maritime assets. Again, this is a long process. Finally, when trying out the Chinese Navy aircraft carrier, when loaded, will face many challenging requirements. Such as the effective management of an aircraft carrier and carrier-based aircraft is very difficult. Therefore, Ross concluded that China wants the United States pose a threat to the aircraft carrier, still need to wait decades.
Ross said, China can only become a U.S. aircraft carrier aircraft and cruise missiles is another goal. Therefore, China’s aircraft carrier project is likely to play “enhance U.S. maritime security” beyond the effect, because it would reduce China’s submarine-based and more effective “anti-access” capability. Moreover, compared with U.S. naval forces, the Chinese carrier’s strength is relatively weak, which is likely to make China a more cautious view of the use of force to challenge U.S. interests. Chinese aircraft carrier deployment is likely to increase not only the United States respond to China’s ability to challenge the order in Asia, there may further consolidate the strategic partnership between the United States. ,
addition to the aircraft carrier, the number of American observers also maneuvering anti-ship ballistic missiles, China’s R & D efforts are concerned. Reportedly, the Chinese mobile anti-ship missile being developed range of over 1,500 kilometers. If China’s land-based missile to target, precise tracking, and then penetrate the U.S. defense of surface ships, it will significantly reduce the United States in the Pacific Ocean’s power projection capabilities. As an anti-access weapons, maneuvering anti-ship ballistic missiles, China has prevented the U.S. military in the Western Pacific and South China Sea waters most of the action potential, which will reduce the U.S. military to protect its strategic partner in Asia Pacific ability.
But Ross believes underestimate the Chinese anti-ship missile during the development of mobile barriers, exaggerate the capabilities of strategic impact, it is very unwise. He said that in the vast ocean to detect a moving target, such as aircraft carriers, is still a very challenging problem. In addition to detection, the attack in terms of precision, always tracking moving aircraft carrier is necessary, and this is another challenging problem. Finally, the penetration of U.S. defense ships are not easy. U.S. aircraft carrier battle group may have anti-air defense system, maneuvering anti-ship ballistic missiles, such as electronic countermeasures; to interfere with the ability to track missiles, low-tech, low-cost trick measures; including smoke machines, including the basic camouflage techniques. These possibilities to the mobile anti-ship ballistic missiles, China constitutes a significant effect of uncertainty in relation to project feasibility analysis of Chinese experts sparked a widespread debate.
for China’s achievements in the satellite, Ross said that China’s space capabilities are grossly exaggerated, and the U.S. space technology and its ability to respond to China’s satellite was underestimated. Indeed, China continues anti-satellite project, but the limitations of its anti-satellite weapons capabilities, coupled with the numerous number of U.S. satellites to China to destroy the U.S. satellite communications system’s ability to reduce to a minimum. As for China in the field of UAV made extensive efforts, Ross said that although the PLA UAVs can provide advanced detection and weapon carrying capacity, but the Chinese military lacks reliable UAV launch platforms. Chinese land-based UAV flight was too short to target distance of the U.S. ships. And, if there is no reliable C4ISR capabilities and reliable maritime capabilities, unmanned aerial vehicles will not be able to challenge U.S. naval supremacy in China play a significant role in promoting.
Ross said, Beijing is still developing cyber warfare technology, but is not related to assessment, including China itself suffered such attacks. China can easily access network warfare technologies and techniques, and the U.S. military is increasingly dependent on advanced high-tech communication and monitoring technology. Therefore, the United States vulnerable to network attacks, network attacks launched by China to the United States for U.S. military operations in the Western Pacific have a significant impact. Nevertheless, Washington to Beijing to launch the network war also has the same significance – pose a serious threat to U.S. technology, weapons (including mobile anti-ship missile system) is also dependent on advanced communication and monitoring technology, and these are also very vulnerable to U.S. attacks. Once the United States weakened the People’s Liberation Army’s advanced communications technology, China’s high-tech asymmetric capabilities will suffer.
and Ross further stated that the United States in East Asia has enough foreign forces can maintain its strong military presence to deal with the rise of China, and maintain a favorable balance of military power. U.S. alliance with Japan, and Singapore’s close ties to Washington to provide for regional power projection is necessary in terms of naval and air facilities. United States and Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines to establish a strategic partnership. Each country has an important port facilities in times of crisis, whether it is a crisis over Taiwan or North Korea crisis, these port facilities are able to provide support for the U.S. military.
For the above reasons, Ross said that the United States need to worry too much about China’s military modernization on the impact of U.S. security interests in East Asia. He said that although China’s military power has been increased in recent years, but still has not developed to constitute a significant threat to the United States the necessary technology. Beijing’s military power is still not enough to lead Washington to improve the areas of national defense or security policy, but also government policy toward China or the United States, a significant change. Moreover, Washington and its partners, the strength of their ability to trust, to enable the consolidation of regional security interests, military and diplomatic fields, extensive cooperation with China. All in all, China is seriously exaggerated the threat, U.S. military strength sufficient to maintain the twenty-first century United States maritime superiority. (Compiled: Spring)
