Maid Ying China. China put rockets on the disputed islands

During the month, the PLA transferred several anti-ship missile systems and an air defense system to the disputed Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, reports TASS Post American channel CNBC.


Maid Ying China. China put rockets on the disputed islands


According to the channel’s sources, the missile weapons were “delivered to three of the four fortified outposts west of the Philippines in the South China Sea over the past 30 days.”

According to interlocutors, the complexes allow the Chinese military "to strike ships at a radius of 295 nautical miles (about 546 km), as well as hit air targets at a distance of 160 nautical miles (about 296 km)."

As the representative of the Pentagon noted in his commentary, "the United States constantly called on China, as well as other states that have claims (to the islands), to refrain from further developing the disputed territories, building new structures and using them for military purposes."

Further militarization of the outposts will only lead to increased tensions and aggravate mistrust among the states that have claims
added on.

Earlier, the media reported that China installed equipment “capable of jamming communications systems and radars” on two islands in the southwestern part of the South China Sea. According to military sources, the equipment mentioned "may affect the operations of the US Navy in the area."

Recall that the dispute over the Spratly archipelago for many years now has been leading a number of ASEAN countries with Beijing - Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia, and the Philippines. The main cause of tension is the attempt to establish control, including at the expense of the military component, over the area near the Strait of Malacca, through which about 60% of Chinese trade passes and up to 80% of Chinese imports of hydrocarbons.

          Despite the fact that they need to be crushed, but for the island they must be strangled. Respect for the Chinese, push the United States further.

            Well, let's say they won the Turkish tender, the competitors were S300pmu2 and Patriot Pak3 .. For political reasons, the tender was canceled.
            Can you tell me where "in a more or less serious war" proved to be S-300? And where has China participated since 60? China, unashamedly, copies (with improvement) everything that falls into its hands. The S-300 (launchers and missiles) integrated with the AFAR radar from the Patriot .. it turned out HQ-9 ... a good barrel organ.
            And the "omnipotent" S-300 is only during the "queen" exercises, and rockets also fall 50 meters from the launch .. it happened.

              S-300 in a real war in Syria, and not in exercises and parades, like the HQ-9.
              And they fall at all, even among the unrivaled creators of iPhones fall, and with enviable regularity. And I note that the effectiveness of the Patriots has never been proven. So AFAR from Patriot is money down the drain.

                Once again about the S-300 and Syria. Shaw, is there really fighting and is there evidence? There is an S-300B4 military kit there, it’s in Tartus, but it’s not going to fight yet. No one attacks the Navy base. You have only the cove.
                Patriots really fought, and in 1991 and in 2003 and now they are fighting, just not at the parade. But the effectiveness of the S-300 is confirmed only at the VO forums. Where is she a panacea for all ills. Not a single military launch in history.

                  But sho the Chinese will not put their smart and beautiful wherever, not in the deep rear, but on the theater?
                  And why don't they promote their super tanks in real combat? Not in Syria, so in Yemen the same?
                  Yes, and for the S-300 they speak not only the S-300, but also the Torah, and the Armor, and others ...
                  The losses of the Israeli Air Force from fire only the S-75 and S-125 air defense systems of Syria amounted to:

                  SAM-75M - 26 aircraft
                  S-75M air defense system - 32 aircraft
                  S-125 air defense system - 33 aircraft

                    You forgot to mention the year. And the conversation was about the S-300. S-75 and in Vietnam showed a good performance. Only now for 1 downed plane, dozens of fired missiles, and the result is random. How many were beaten up in 1991 and 2003? And in Syria?
                    For China, they are too clever to fit into this conflict. On a roll?

                      And you, I see now, will tell about some successes of the Patriots? Very interesting. At least for how long. Even if you accidentally hit somewhere, you can put it down, in granite we will knock out this case of unrivaled power.
                      I am silent about China, they are the same smart, so as not to shine.

    A small addition:
    The report said that the Pentagon refused to comment on this information, citing that it is intelligence. Chinese authorities also declined to comment.

    One of the parties contesting the data of the island is Vietnam. Therefore, our participation in this event is doubtful, but the tacit consent is quite possible.

    China, as an economic power on an equal footing with the States, can afford to pursue its independent policy! And be guided only by their geopolitical interests! And whining of other countries to China is absolutely sideways !! They do what they consider necessary, with no one to reckon with! The fact that once the Great Soviet Union could afford! And yes, I can say that the Chinese are proud of their country and consider it a mighty power, and they have every right to do so! Alas, Russia cannot afford this.

        He fell into the water. What about the catapult? At the airbase can not put ultrasonic repellers? The plane has two engines, both of them hit at once? And the turbine blades are made of titanium, why doesn't the bird just grind like in a meat grinder without causing damage to the engine?

    The main cause of tension is attempts to establish control, including due to the military component, over the area near the Strait of Malacca, through which about 60% of Chinese trade and up to 80% of Chinese hydrocarbon imports pass.

    Under such circumstances, China will not back down. Nowhere to retreat to him.
