Taiwan media exposure: U.S. aircraft carrier battle group was intimidated by Chinese mystery missiles

Dongfeng-21C (wind -21 C) medium-range ballistic missile



Taiwan's "China Times" recently reported - Dongfeng 21D U.S. Navy missile threat? Experts pointed out that Taiwan still needs to hit the global satellite network carrier under construction.


China's military buildup and expansion of the U.S. military wanted to come to much attention. According to the U.S. Navy Intelligence Agency report in 2009 revealed that the PLA a ship called the Dongfeng-21D medium-range ballistic missiles, has been close to running in the future, after the formal service, will form a serious threat to the United States Navy ships, and there Central Pacific could undermine the balance of military power.

Some analysts said that if the missile's target system proved to be accurate, then the load and other factors from the point of view, the Dongfeng-21D may be listed as the world's first mobile ground-based medium-range missiles capable of hit nearly 2,000 miles away moving aircraft carrier.


Military experts point out that the design of the Dongfeng -21 missile developed during the Cold War with the United States "Pershing 2" missile, the difference is small, the former is a land-based type, and can change direction in flight, while the load of this type of missiles and performance, American strategists and military experts has been the most concern. Former U.S. Navy commander, currently strategic advisor Ghiara, said: "Although the technical capabilities of the missile is not unprecedented, but it is a revolutionary multi-performance combination."


According to a Taiwan military experts said the Defense Department 10 years ago by China Dongfeng -21 antiship missile research and development of intelligence, the Dongfeng-21D is a derivative of Dongfeng -21. Dongfeng-21D are to achieve the American aircraft carrier must also have the so-called C4ISR (command automation system) with. The military expert said: "China's sanitation star network is gradually constructed, the current Chinese satellite over the Pacific Ocean about 20." He pointed out that often because the location of mobile carrier, must fight to have to know the correct position, once the construction of complete sanitation star network, the Dongfeng-21D attack on the aircraft carrier have any real effect.


The military experts also cite the 1996 Taiwan Strait missile crisis, for example, the U.S. sent two aircraft carriers to defend Taiwan, but the PLA at the time control, communications, and could not grasp the exact location of these two carriers, so it strongly R & D space satellite and communications technology, to make up for this deficiency.


If the wind-21D U.S. Navy suffered the attack, military experts, accompanied by the carrier and the mandate of the Aegis destroyers and frigates, to the "standard 3" (SM-3) missile to intercept. However Ghiara that Aegis destroyers equipped with missile launchers loading fast enough, can not effectively counter.

However, Ghiara also pointed out that the United States may also take other, more traditional tactics, such as surface ships deployed in the east-21D outside the range, or increase the number of submarines to the sea. Ghiara, said: "Of course, there is a way retreat. But this is the main purpose of China's attempts to achieve."


Hong Kong's "Sing Pao Daily News" reported on July 23: U.S. Naval War College Strategy and Policy Associate Professor Yoshiwara Jun wells has revealed that if the U.S. ship was too close to the waters near Taiwan to mainland China unhappiness, China may launch wind-21D missile warning. Yoshihara Jun wells that Dongfeng-21D missile that the Pentagon is deeply concerned, and may undermine the balance of power in the Pacific a new weapon system in China.


PLA Second Artillery Corps equipment Dongfeng-21C missile

LONDON June 18 news: According to Russia's "military Messenger" magazine on June 16 reported that the Pentagon has recently become increasingly frequent references to the need to take appropriate measures to deal with China's military strength, the challenges of rapid growth, so that Washington worries again The reason is made for the PLA Navy Dongfeng-21C (NATO code CSS-5 Mod 3) ballistic missile, it is not for the elimination of long-range coastal defense facilities, but against enemy large surface ships, warships and transport vessels formation escort fleet, which was regarded as a carrier and the aircraft carrier attack groups of direct threat.

Intense fear and anxiety that the U.S. generals that the Chinese anti-ship ballistic missile Dongfeng-21C (specific source referred to as "wind-21D"). According to various versions of the message, such missiles have been manufactured either in preparing for tests and other tests, either still in final development phase. For China, the problem may arise such missiles, the U.S. Navy analysts as early as 2004 that the "challenge of the Navy in the field," report to their headquarters and the U.S. military and political leadership of the proposed warning, the paper highlighted that: "China ready to battle tactics through the use of non-nuclear ballistic missiles to protect their own properties in the waters near Taiwan anti-surface ship, including the aircraft carrier attack group's capabilities. "


According to U.S. experts estimate that China's anti-ship missile will be integrated into coastal mobile missile system, combat formation, for the protection of conventional ballistic missiles with anti-ship performance, you can use with radar and (or) infrared guidance system based on type of motor replacement warhead ballistic missile warheads, are not yet entirely clear that the current level of technology and defense systems in China could have developed similar products.


It must be pointed out that, even if the wind-21C missiles tipped with conventional warheads instead of nuclear warheads, will use radar and (or) infrared guidance system, in order to protect its surface moving targets in the fight against high combat efficiency, or do not have to do this and scared out of his.


Currently on the Dongfeng-21C anti-ship missile, is very limited, only know the basis of its development of ballistic missiles -21 selected as a land-based wind, the first model in the late 60s started to develop only in the mid 80s until the end. According to different data, the current arsenal of about 60-80 PLA missiles, about 60 sets of mobile launchers. Can be assembled using conventional combat ammunition, also can carry nuclear warheads. Chinese anti-ship ballistic missile is a two-stage solid fuel missile, a launch mass of about 15 tons, according to speculation, a range of about 1200-2000 km.

According to some sources, even as far up to 2,500 km. Dongfeng-21C assembly penetration warhead weighing 500 kg, be able to use external sources of data transmission target instructions, the Chinese military command level to ensure priority development of this discovery and identification of less than 3,000 km from the coastline, the large surface ships and vessels of the coast over horizon radar.


Dongfeng-21C is about 10 meters circular error probability, to ensure that U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier class hit as the goal. The Pentagon confirmed that China as early as 2005, the first time the anti-ship ballistic missile tests. American analysts both in the military profession, or in the general political orientation, in the east-21C to the media revealed that the development will be said when the first anti-ship missile is developed in science and industry made significant achievements again proof that Chinese scientists, designers and engineers have the ability to find a military threat against Western non-traditional ways and means.


In fact, the world's first anti-ship missile developed countries that the Soviet Union. As early as 60-70 years in the last century, the Soviet Union developed the first effective anti-ship formation of large surface targets and ballistic missiles, submarines, weapons and equipment into the main D-5 missile launches ballistic missile system R-27K.


April 24, 1962 the USSR Council of Ministers adopted Resolution No. 386-279 made the decision to develop such a missile system, plans to assemble the system to the D-5 was active in the 667A-type nuclear submarines and the development of the 705B model (later renamed 687 type, and finally failed) nuclear submarine, the missile and the launch system design leader is Makeyefu, project code-named SKB-385. The main features of the new missile system is universal, as fighting weapons, not only against ground targets, such as R-27 ballistic missile base, but also assemble a passive radar guidance system R-27K variant ballistic missiles, for selective to anti-aircraft carrier battle groups, escort warships formation or formation of a large class of enemy surface targets.


In addition, the new missile factory on the filling should be long-term storage of hypergolic propellant nitrogen tetroxide and unsymmetrical dimethyl hydrazine, thereby significantly increase the missile and missile silos in the means of delivery, the shelf life, while helping to improve its combat performance.


R-27 for the single-stage liquid fuel missile, carrying a single module detachable warhead, all-welded seal missile material from the aluminum-magnesium alloy, weighing about 6500 kg. The initial use of inertial guidance systems, sensor located in the gyro stabilized platform, the command and guidance system located in a sealed chamber, the engine from the main and two modules, the former thrust of 23 tons, which is 3 tons of thrust. March 13, 1968 R-27 ballistic missile carrying the D-5 missile system began in the Soviet Navy, only the equipment to the 667A-type nuclear submarine, nicknamed "Zhvania - Washington", and the U.S. Navy's new strategy emerged after missile nuclear submarine of the name "George - Washington" is very similar.


To R-27-based development from the R-27K anti-ship ballistic missile launch two state system the quality of fuel at about 13.25 tons, length 9 m, diameter 1.5 m, the overall size and basic type R-27 equivalent to the maximum range of 900 kilometers, the Soviet Navy Command that such missile large enough to enemy anti-maneuvering targets. Single module warhead using passive radar guidance system, with onboard computer, the flight terminal radar moving target based on radiation characteristics of the module to adjust to the combat boot.

R-27K began in 1974, the Soviet Navy in the trial, only the assembly of a nuclear submarine, after the failure to continue to develop, because the Soviet Navy began to focus on developing more effective anti-ship cruise missiles, not very far range, and hit the higher accuracy of more selective anti-target.

In the past, or present, no country in the world now not be able to intercept anti-ship ballistic missile warheads, weapons carrier, the U.S. generals worry about it so they understand that once China has dozens of such a missile system then the U.S. aircraft carrier attack groups in China's coastal waters within the new missile has a range that any action is simply suicidal.


Another fact for the U.S. Navy command was particularly worried about the Chinese anti-ship missile system in order to ensure the efficient new combat use, and actively develop special types of unmanned aircraft to track the missile launch to provide target data to guide target of reconnaissance satellites, the use of synthetic aperture radar, optical surveillance system assembly. Another use-the-horizon surveillance radar can provide target data. According to U.S. experts speculated as early as 2001, China started to develop to a higher accuracy detection and identification of 800-3000 km range target horizon radar, the transmission and reception system decentralized deployment, spaced about 100 km, on China's coastal areas, satellite surveillance images to prove their point.


It is reported that over-the-horizon radar prototype has been built and tested, now demolished, because the real genuine-the-horizon radar in the construction work is not yet complete, but once deployed, given its distribution can confirm that China will bring with Japan, the Philippines fully monitor the waters between them.
