electronic transport eight improved marine resources the blood of the national economy is the focal point of maritime military struggle. Maritime rights and interests impossible “according to need”, with an effective strength of the need for countries to fight. As naval strategists Mahan said: “There is no navy, we have expressed in a pinch will of the state will only become a giant with feet of clay made clumsy useless gesture.” Current resources of the disputed sea area mining, is likely to trigger a new round of armed conflicts and local wars at sea. Chinese navy, air and sea threats may need to change ideas, to enhance maritime guerrilla warfare and combat marine means of nourishing the lines, and asymmetric warfare.
struggle with the economic strategy for the ocean has become increasingly acute, making the Navy’s high-tech equipment and operational activities of the development is facing a new historical turning point. With the new generation of large-scale application of high-tech weapons and equipment, woven naval power to combat forces capable, efficient direction of the transformation tends to reduce the size, constitutes a synthesis of more attention. A standard U.S. Navy aircraft carrier battle group of the original 10-12 ships, vessels have been reduced to 7-9, and plans further reduced to 4-6 aircraft. With the change in the composition of the fleet, national maritime strategy is also a major shift in the U.S. Navy’s strategic vision and operational guidance from the “ocean battle” to “from the edge … … by the Sea to Land” (1000 sea miles from the coast Littoral Combat) change, now further to the “power and channel … … from the sea” strategy to accelerate the transformation of change. U.S. Navy transformation goal is to build a network-based, sea-based joint integrated force projection military; from a “blue water ocean navy,” to be across the sea, land, air, space, electromagnetic five-dimensional battle space “all-Navy “change. U.S. Navy also proposed to establish three major transformation capabilities: “Sea Strike”, “Sea Shield” and “sea base.” In order to increase the intensity of the development of ocean space, the U.S. and Japan have proposed the construction of artificial islands and the large “floating island” scenario, the U.S. strategy for global deployment needs of the Navy, it is called “mobile overseas bases,” and asked Accordingly, the U.S. Navy to build using the “Floating Island” base support expeditionary fleet to defend the ability of the deep ocean economic zone.
In this context, compared to the U.S. Navy in Afghanistan and Iraq and other combat in the performance of the Chinese navy has the courage of military reform must be to improve the future of maritime war fighting capability of local aggression. For the strategy to the shore of the sea driven by the enemy’s information technology joint operations, the Chinese navy to be focusing on sea and air war. One of the most central is to asymmetric warfare, based on the defense, stress attack.
possible for the rival network-centric warfare at sea and long-range precision strikes, the key point to establish and China’s own land, sea, air, space, electromagnetic five-dimensional high-performance integrated network of surveillance information and allegations. Therefore need to focus on improving maritime counter-electronic surveillance, anti-GPS, Anti-, anti-satellite information tactics. May deal with the enemy fleet by the Naval Air Force long-range attack to form an air combat, air must be strengthened, integrated coastal defense and naval air defense system, and enhance the formation of long-range maritime interception capability to intercept at sea by the shore and ship alternate set fire cover. Also need to gradually increase China joint naval fleet against enemy fighters taking off and landing, departing ship’s ability to destroy the opponent to get the airport terminal, the destruction of their maintenance, navigation, fuel and other long-range precision strike means to get the full implementation of modern guerrilla warfare at sea new capabilities.
asymmetric warfare can not be limited to passive defense, but also including the fight against the opponent’s sea supply lines. The 21st century the Chinese economy into the global economy will run into, but the key area for some countries, the Straits of control, the chaos of war regional conflicts, terrorist attacks at sea, which are a serious threat to China’s merchant fleet of the normal shipping, the ocean escort task is urgent to put in front of the Chinese Navy. But should realize that off supplies, broken transport, traffic disturbance and other tactics equally effective against the enemy, especially for a very long supply lines that they rely mainly on sea and air military operations even more remote. Defending the sea lanes in the future struggle, give them to resolve the enemy see the front offensive, as root of the problem, focus on the enemy fleet of ocean-going high-speed transport ships, and theater support of special supplies comprise convoy ships guarding the shipping lanes attack , accompanied by the enemy waterway, port submarines, mine blockade. Great reliance on modern warfare, logistics, logistics supply lines by cutting off, the collapse of the enemy from the sea can be effectively combined sea and air attack. In addition, for the “floating base” to support the organization of this new form of naval supplies, still remains to be seen, research, identify weaknesses and Achilles heel depth, and ocean-going sea and air raid asymmetric attacks, destroy isolated from the sea Alert the amphibious ships, ship equipment, such as pre-monster, you can get to “move out of and pull the body” type of damage to marine combat the effect of key points system.
