Learn from the United States said the Chinese anti-ship ballistic missiles, Pershing II missile technology
the late 1980s the United States to abandon the” Pershing II “model (Pershing II)-surface ballistic missile
LONDON June 27 news: United States Jamestown Foundation” China Briefing, “24 published the Department of Naval Operations Strategic Studies Institute, Assistant Professor Andrew S · Eriksson article, Erickson said in the article, China has always hoped to get anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM) capability to prevent Taiwan’s future Strait crisis erupted when the U.S. aircraft carrier battle group (CSG) forced to intervene. China now than ever before are more likely to be land-based anti-ship ballistic missiles. Many Western media reports that China is developing anti-ship ballistic missiles. Moreover, a growing number of publications in China (including a number of authoritative publications) began to focus on the ballistic missile technology and operational discussions.
Erickson said, these cases show that China may in the near future, deployment, testing, or use anti-ship missile – one of the other countries never had weapons. The U.S. official sources said the Beijing government is to promote medium-range ballistic CSS-5/DF-21D solid basis to develop anti-ship ballistic missiles. CSS-5 missiles up to 1,500 km range, the Taiwan region to the western Pacific in the vast waters of the ship, are in the missile threat. Although the ability of Chinese anti-ship ballistic not yet known, but the missile may be the United States in the Western Pacific deterrence, military operations and the balance of power have a profound impact.
Currently, the U.S. does not have anti-ship ballistic missiles. But in fact, the United States has had with similar capabilities with – “Pershing II” model (Pershing II)-surface ballistic missile. However, in 1988, when the United States and Soviet Union signed the “Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty”, the Washington Government to give up this capability. Interestingly, some Chinese media claimed that “Pershing II” ballistic missile (now discontinued) has the advantage of the former, inspired the Chinese anti-ship ballistic missile-related research and development.
“Pershing II” ballistic missile pro-end mobility can provide an adjustable two control rudder (second stage control fins). U.S. official sources, and many reports have said China, the Chinese anti-ship ballistic missiles, will be CSS-5 is based. Although it is unclear whether there is on the launching tube outside the CSS-5 missiles, the photo, but it is certain that, at least there is a close relationship with China CSS-6/DF-15 missile missile, with the appearance of the “Pershing II “missiles are equipped with reentry vehicles similar vehicles.
visual similarities from this point of view, CSS-6 missiles may use the “Pershing II” is similar to the end of the mobile technology, and that the CSS-5 missiles use similar technologies guess is reasonable. This is because the Chinese are using re-entry vehicles may be able to easily with the CSS-5 booster in close co-ordination, thus creating an effective anti-ship ballistic missiles.
The article said that China’s leaders not only want to prevent attacks on the United States. They want to safeguard China’s core interests and territorial integrity, the development of the domestic economy to maintain a stable environment. If China developed the anti-ship ballistic missiles, then they will hope to prevent the United States to undermine China’s security interests through – it is clear that China’s security interests beyond the first island chain – the way to project power. However, China’s own strength, coupled with U.S. interests in East Asia, so for this purpose, anti-ship missile developed into a complex and dangerous move. Both in terms of national officials and heads of state, or Taiwan, Japan and the American public – they not only provide funding for military development, but also bear the resulting final results – in terms of, Beijing to discuss their anti-ship ballistic missile programs details and its intentions in this field will search all of these questions is the ultimate answer lies. World peace and stability in the region, strategic mutual trust between the demand has not diminished. (Compiled: Spring)
