"Official reports from the search for our treasure!" This is a U.S. think tank "2049 Scheme" Institute chief expert Makesituo Brooks used to say, he was awarded the CIA had "the best of the Chinese human intelligence gathering Prize "veteran Recently, a new discovery, he said in a report, through the interpretation of the official report, he reached the building of Guangdong Province, east China is a land-based anti-aircraft missile-21D base conclusions. The rapid rise to a U.S. media report on China's anti-aircraft missiles, a new round of speculation. More U.S. military analysts are beginning to discuss ways to deal with Dongfeng-21D.

New base for the South China Sea, mainly?

According to "Defense News" reported on August 5, "2049 Scheme" Research on China's official media has a military base in the new report was "in-depth analysis." Chinese media reported that a short, local leaders in the August 1 Army Day in Guangdong Province before the sympathy of the officers and men of a new military base. Stokes speculated that this is a Second Artillery missile forces, the Second Artillery building a new base in a province only where the purpose of the deployment of new weapons. He speculated that the force will be equipped with wind-21C medium-range ballistic missiles, and may deploy more advanced anti-ship ballistic missile Dongfeng-21D, which will be China's first anti-aircraft missile base.

Ballistic missiles are generally used against fixed land targets, but the U.S. media that the east-21D is tailored specifically for the U.S. aircraft carrier missile against moving targets at sea, to prevent U.S. aircraft carrier involved in the Taiwan Strait. "Defense News" will have a further interpretation of the report, that the new base in the South China Sea is mainly used for deterrence. Reported in Meizhou, Guangdong has a short-range ballistic missile base, a new base in the South China Sea that China should use the "anti-intervention" strategy, the South China Sea "strategic calculus equation" more complex.

Articles guess, Dongfeng-21C of the range of 1,700 kilometers, can easily hit targets in Vietnam, and most of the land, including Subic Bay, Philippines, including the northern part of the east-21D anti-aircraft missile's range was about 1500-2000 km, If you can reach 1,800 kilometers, can fully cover the Spratly Islands, such as a range of 2,000 km, can cover 70% of the South China Sea waters. In addition, the new base from Taiwan, 800 kilometers east coast, however, may take into account the Taiwan Strait. The article said that the anti-aircraft missiles deployed in Shaoguan also increased the U.S. military reconnaissance and combat difficulty, because this is located in Nanling Mountains, "2049," the report said, early in 2008, the Corps of Engineers began construction of underground tunnels in Shaoguan.

The end of the first round of tests?

Associated Press reporter recently boarded a U.S. military Tokyo "George? Washington" aircraft, and on August 5 article quoted analysts as saying that the earliest possible launch by the end of this year Dongfeng-21D, which will U.S. aircraft carrier to lose the security near the Chinese coastline of 18,000 km right.

Willard, commander of U.S. Pacific Theater in March of this year's congressional hearings has warned that China might launch anti-aircraft missiles in the near future. U.S. surveillance systems have not yet found in China a sign test, which test-fired several missiles must be deployed to combat.

Associated Press article said, wind-21D is equipped with conventional warheads, hit mainly by precision to destroy aircraft carrier deck, and hit the deck, the biggest difficulty is that the end of guidance, if missile to 10 times the speed of sound Xixiang carrier must be a "point of needle "The move directly hit the aircraft carrier. The Soviet Union had tried to create a similar missile, but too difficult to give up.

The article quoted former U.S. Naval War College professor Ji Chun well as saying that China needs to do three levels of missile units to sink the aircraft carrier position, first of all, use-the-horizon radar locked aircraft carrier, the second, sending early warning aircraft in the Pacific to locate, In addition, space-based satellites with the need. The article said that around this problem, some experts think that China needs at least 10 years to have anti-aircraft missile, but others think that China in the next year or two may be tested, the fastest in the end of the year.

Will the U.S. change the way of aircraft carrier battle?

Jun Yoshihara well known for China to build anti-aircraft missiles, "the United States has begun to develop appropriate anti-missile system." He believes that the history of only two U.S. carriers face a real threat, one was used in World War II Japanese "Kamikaze" suicide plane, and once the Soviet Union during the Cold War against the U.S. aircraft carrier group to deploy a large strategic bombers, "The role of anti-aircraft missiles should not be exaggerated."

Well-known U.S. political blog sites "hot air" on the 7th an article that is not a new anti-aircraft missile threat, the United States in the past 30 years has been committed to developing anti-ballistic missile system, the last paragraph of the success rate of interception of ballistic missiles reached 80%. The Chinese anti-aircraft missile hit rate "up to 50%", which means wind-21D on the U.S. aircraft carrier is not too serious threats.

Associated Press article, in response to wind-21D, U.S. carriers will change the operational mode. "Hot air," the article explained this was: first, the U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups will be equipped with more "Aegis" ships. Current U.S. battle group usually with a "Aegis" warships, cruise missiles in terms of more than sufficient for the prevention, but in order to respond to ballistic missile saturation attack, "Aegis" ships must be increased, the aircraft carrier itself to be equipped with anti-missile system . But this will affect the operational efficiency of aircraft carrier battle group. Second, the U.S. aircraft carrier in action from coastal areas to avoid the missile, but could also bring greater risk. Because it means that the U.S. carrier aircraft will take more time to carry out its mandate, the carrier-based aircraft landing on deck ready to return, the carrier can not turn, speed, or switching of electromagnetic devices, China may use this "time window" of the aircraft to combat.

The U.S. military has recently revealed that some anti-aircraft missile program should. Published this year, "air and maritime war" strategy, the U.S. Air Force stealth fighter from the first idea to destroy the enemy's coastal radar system locked to prevent one's own aircraft carrier to be targeted. The U.S. military successfully tested by the end of May and shipborne laser guns, is also considered the future of the U.S. Navy an important incoming missiles against high-speed equipment.

3 Dongfeng-21D missile can sink the USS Washington?

Over the years, the Pentagon has been received by the Chinese anti-ship ballistic missiles, are worried about. Pentagon to this missile as "anti-access" weapons that such weapons systems can prevent the enemy from entering a specific area. First for the U.S. Air Force intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) of the deputy chief of staff David tera recently said that China's ability to enhance anti-intervention efforts in the field is one worrying trend. Although not specifically mentioned tera Dongfeng-21D missile, he said: "Although we may not be enemies with the Chinese people, but we resolutely oppose them could eventually be manufactured and sold worldwide this weapon."

However, in perfecting the process of missile technology, China will continue to encounter difficulties; After all, the attack is not easy to move the aircraft carrier, which require the most advanced guidance systems, and some experts believe this constitutes a credible threat missile to take about 10 years.

U.S. Naval War College professor of international law and sea power, the former navy commander James carat ska recently, in its article that the assumption that after five years from now, carrying penetrating warheads Dongfeng - 21D missile would can sink the United States, "George Washington" aircraft. This could declare a new era of international order - in this era, the rise of China as an alternative to the United States.

The article said, though new weapons put into operation before the Chinese government has never for comment, but the military fans Yi Zhi in the east - 21D missile Jinxing Guangfantaolun. The missile can fly at 10 times the speed of sound, can carry conventional warheads. China's official Xinhua website also published an anonymous article, imagine the U.S. sending "George Washington" aircraft carrier support should China attack Taiwan scenario.

This article points out that, in response, the Chinese military will wind-21D missile salvo 3: No. 1 Dong Feng-21D will penetrate the "George Washington" USS shell, causing fires, so that aircraft carriers to stop flying ; second with missiles and air strikes to destroy the engine of the aircraft carrier; third gold wind-21D is "to 'George Washington' was sunk."
