Foreign media: China to strengthen the attacks paralyze the enemy’s C2 systems to build capacity
2003 years ago, a large number of resources to equip the PLA tanks and the main fighter.
PLA is to develop the current C2 systems creating paralysis while fighting the enemy C2 systems
LONDON May 21 news: Asian Military Review Network recently reported that the United States in 2003 launched The war in Iraq, so that the PLA is well aware of the command and control (C2) systems in the modern importance of the war. To this end, the PLA has changed in the past will be a lot of resources to equip tanks and fighter practice, instead to develop C2 systems, and paralyze the enemy’s C2 systems creating the fighting.
reported that, as information technology continues to evolve, gradually became aware of the Asian countries, except in aircraft, ships and armored vehicles into the capital projects, they need to increase the command and control systems investment. In the 21st century, the region’s military and political leaders are no longer assessed from the number of soldiers on the strength of its regional rivals, but to focus on advanced information technology (IT) area – they network-centric warfare ( NCW) to the power-fold increase as an important tool.
reports that the network-centric warfare was first proposed by the United States, and in essence, its main content is information superiority into how to have a competitive combat advantage. If a country is to have the military network-centric warfare capabilities, then it must first ensure that they have a wide range of geographically distributed network of forces and well-informed, so that its only possible through information technology, access to certain capabilities. From the military point of view, information technology, about the equivalent of command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (C4I).
reported that the Western countries especially the relatively small military forces (such as the British armed forces) has been the concept of network-centric warfare to seize and hold, want to be able to provide themselves with a stronger opponent’s strengths beyond . However, in Asia, although the information technology industry has been rapid development, but the concept of network-centric warfare, and there has been large-scale promotion – Asia’s military leaders are still clinging to the idea of ??a number of large-scale industrial war, especially its by getting more tanks, ships and bombers to the needs of the accumulation of advantage. However, due to many factors, is now the situation in Asia has undergone a subtle change. Aware of the potential advantages of network-centric warfare in Asia and a new generation of military leaders are trying to strengthen its network-centric warfare capabilities. Moreover, the U.S. military superiority in the military increasingly dependent on its capacity for information transfer and the development of the situation, but also further promote the development of Asian countries, the network-centric warfare operations.
reports point out that the PLA is now busy developing its own C4I systems. Before very long period of time, Chinese military planners regard to quantity-based strategic deterrent, as the PLA’s strategic foundation, therefore, attention is devoted to China and not to C2 systems, but built Many fighters and tanks, to prevent any potential attacks against their own, and make sure its not possible in Taiwan conflict in any possibility to win. Until 2003, the U.S. military quickly defeated the Iraqi regular army, the PLA’s guiding ideology began to change. At that time, the U.S. military to promote the speed of the collapse of the Iraqi C2 system with the ability to show the leaders of the PLA’s potential network-centric warfare. Moreover, the Beijing government from the war in Iraq and Afghanistan operations in 2001, learned the information in an era of war is asymmetrical, non-linear or non-contact war.
reported that the U.S. military has confirmed that: they launched long-range precision attack to the rapid disintegration of the key military and political objectives of the enemy, paralyzing the enemy’s C2 systems, so that the enemy no longer able to organize effective resistance. It is this military superiority to force the government to accelerate its Beijing began in the 1990s the process of modernization of the PLA. One goal of the PLA toward smaller, more flexible military development, and appropriate armed forces to a modular manner. Furthermore, in order to ensure effective cooperation between the various military services, the PLA has made clear its own development of modern C2 systems.
report quoted observers as saying that China, the PLA Army, Air Force and the Navy is building a network of powerful tactical C4I system, the PLA headquarters and battle groups, squadrons and marine task force together. Moreover, in some cases, the network and even connect to the lowest tactical unit. This top-down, centralized command of the army, China is very difficult to imagine. Reported, and such as tanks, aircraft design and some require external assistance in different industries, the Beijing government already has the ability to develop advanced industrial base C2 systems. In fact, a lot of the world’s computer chips are produced in China, which is itself a reflection of IT capabilities. Therefore, China has a strong IT capabilities in the network-centric warfare does not require the field desperately to catch up to other countries.
reported that in the development of their C2 systems at the same time, China is also exploring the potential to weaken the opponent C2 systems. The U.S. Strategic Command, the U.S. military computer network security officer Kevin Hilton warned that China is the biggest U.S. military network external threats. Moreover, he also worried that China C2 systems for the United States waged a successful network attacks, the United States to win a war would be the ability to impact.
report concluded that China’s development of C2 systems by the impact of the move, the region’s other countries are also considering acquisition of C2 systems for the armed forces, therefore, there is generally purchased in Asia’s boom C2 systems. From the United States, Europe and Israel’s defense companies are eager to win the deal. Analysts pointed out that despite the current global economy is in recession, but for those of C2 C4I system to provide companies the opportunity to make money is great. In addition, the acquisition of C2 systems in Asia region operations, but also to some extent means that, at present the traditional challenges that exist in Asia has weakened. (Compiled: Spring)
