“China’s ballistic missile launch in 2018 is in excess of the rest of the world.”. The U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, Robert Ashley, is particularly worried about the U.S. in the context of a new “Dongfeng-41”-test of the “I don’t know how these data can be counted, and it’s still the US-based political bias against China.” ‘s international missile, but the Chinese missile expert, Yang Chengjun, told the Global Times
According to the Washington Times,25 days, the Pentagon confirmed that China’s latest “Dongfeng-41” multi-warhead intercontinental missile conducted a flight test, a “This is the first U.S. official confirmation of the ‘Dongfeng-41’ test since May 2018”, on 22. The U. S. intelligence agency says it has been deployed in real-time, according to the U. S. intelligence agency, in a public appearance at the 70th anniversary of the Chinese National Day. “A total of 16 ‘Dongfeng-41’ is shown in the parade, which will become a key element of China’s fight against the United States.”.
Fisher, an expert on military affairs at the center for international assessment and strategy, a us think-tank, said the test was the eleventh since 2012. General Philip Davidson, commander of the United States Indian Pacific Command, had told Congress that China had been testing nuclear missiles, including Dongfeng-41. “Dongfeng-41 is capable of carrying multiple re-entry vehicles capable of independent targeting with a range of 9300 miles,” Davidson said. According to military analysts, Dongfeng-41 could carry 6-10 nuclear warheads.
In particular, the Pentagon is disturbed by the “China’s intensive missile test”. China has also carried out the flight test of the east wind-31 “intercontinental missile in the first week of the test, which is a slightly old model, a short range of intercontinental missiles, and a part of China’s fast-growing nuclear arsenal, the report said. China has also conducted a test-test on the “Wave-3” ‘s submarine-launched intercontinental missile in June. “China is moving towards the goal of doubling the size of its nuclear arsenal, which is the most important nuclear arsenal in the history of China,” the report said Rapid expansion and diversification. ” “last year, China launched more ballistic missiles in testing and training than the rest of the world combined.”
The U.S. “Washington Free Beacon” website also mentioned that China’s total nuclear warheads are not fully known for military secrecy, and Ashley believes China has hundreds of nuclear warheads. He believes that China’s previous nuclear power was limited, and China deployed its first mobile intercontinental missile around 2000. “The reason for this rapid growth is that China’s previous nuclear capabilities have not been the same as Russia or the United States had in the past, so this has been a major investment in the past 15 years to catch up. “.
But do Chinese ballistic missiles really pose such a threat to the United States? As long as a slight analysis can be found, Ashley’s conclusion is clearly “avoid the heavy and light.” Unlike the Chinese ballistic missile family, which is dominated by medium and short range conventional missiles, the active ballistic missiles of the United States are mainly intercontinental missiles, so it is naturally impossible to launch them frequently. But if you calculate the number of intercontinental missiles launched within a certain period of time alone, the United States will definitely lead the world. In particular, according to the logic of “high number of missile launches” by the United States, the US Navy has successfully tested the Trident submarine-launched intercontinental missile 172 times in a row by May this year. This number alone exceeds most of the “Trident” intercontinental missile. The total number of intercontinental missiles by country.
China’s missile expert, Yang Chengjun, said in an interview with the Global Times that the launch test of the “Dongfeng-41” missile is the annual routine training plan. According to the training program of the PLA, the military training of the missile force every year includes basic training and technical operation training. Tactical synthesis training and command cooperative training, etc., it is sometimes necessary to launch a real bomb to further test the training effect. For example, the PLA has trained several times since the beginning of this year, most of which are conventional and near-range missiles, with a range of about 1000 km. It also shows that China’s R & D missiles focus on maintaining national border security, as China There’s a long land border and a coastline that can be numbered in the world.
Yang Chengjun also said that, in addition to the large number of intercontinental missiles, the United States has withdrawn from the China-to-China treaty and immediately launched a land-based cruise missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. In addition, the nuclear weapons in the United States are a global deployment, particularly in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, with great military threats to the countries of the world. The United States has been hyped about the “China’s nuclear threat”, in fact, to build public opinion for the upgrading of its own nuclear power. When the Reuters reporter asked Ashley “Whether the large-scale modernization of nuclear weapons in the United States has led to the development of nuclear power in China and”, Ashley had to talk to him. to make a difference
