Taiwan puts into service new cruise anti-Chinese missiles


Taiwan’s Ministry of Defense has decided to deploy 20 mobile-based missile systems as part of a China attack defense program. On the island these missiles are called "protective weapons"with a range of target destruction of up to 1500 km. It is assumed that in the event of a military conflict, these missiles will be able to strike targets deep in mainland China, in particular, such large cities as Hong Kong, Shanghai, as well as targets in economically developed provinces Guangdong, Zhejiang, hitting important objects in the region, including nuclear power plants, storage facilities with strategic oil reserves, high-speed railways, tunnels.

Earlier, plans were announced for arming the mine version of these missiles, but later computer simulations showed that in this case they would be the original targets for hitting Chinese missiles, after which it was decided to stay on the mobile version.

Yun Feng is a surface-to-surface supersonic cruise missile launched using the Tien Kung solid-fuel ballistic missile engine. In the series, Yun Feng will go in a modification with a range of destruction of targets 1500 km. The development of the rocket was conducted in secret mode, the first time it became known about it in 2012. Initially, the systems were planned to be adopted in the 2014 year, but since 2013 of the year information about Yun Feng did not appear in open sources, which gave rise to rumors about the closure of the program.

Between there, military experts believe that this missile will not be able to inflict any serious damage to China, given its rather well-developed ground-based air defense system, as well as anti-aircraft systems that are in service with the PLA Navy.

    Yes, the conclusion of a new INF Treaty can now be made, if it is the missiles of these classes that are now the most demanded in weapons systems

      Yes, there is not so much range as supersonic speed. For comparison, American Tomahawks have a range of 1600 km in a non-nuclear version, but at a subsonic (or transonic) speed. Here it is a "non-proliferation" mode, in ten years terrorists may have such, as they have already appeared shock drones.
      I wonder how much Zircon will fly away if it has a speed of more than 2,5 km / s? This is 150 km per minute. And 1500 km in ten minutes.

      Does the United States want to include Taiwan in the future INF Treaty? Or is it their "scoundrels", their own, they can, they have few of them, and China, as an enemy, is simply obliged to eliminate its missiles ?!

      And Taiwan has an agreement with Shtami, if that ... this is the end of investment in Chinese economy and the situation is similar to yours, in the Crimea. The shats will gladly donate Taiwan for this.

        In Taiwan, a lot of things are being done on electronics and technology - a blow to them and a sharp jump in prices for technology and electronics around the world.

        I won’t be surprised if after some time China and Taiwan unite into a federation form or something! While maintaining the social system and internal political autonomy of Taiwan. Nobody will bomb anyone! All Chinese are pragmatists! Their total GDP exceeds American!

            For the Chinese with their 3-thousand-year history, 40-50-60 years is an instant. Drops of water, dripping for centuries, perforate a stone.

            Well, if he believes Wikipedia, so far he does not surpass even with Taiwan. Whatever the case with GDP, the trend is clear. So the future is with PaxChina. Unless, of course, something happens too long ...

                Just, you need to know the philosophy of the Chinese! Their mentality! Confrontation - detente - confrontation - detente ... and at that time billions of investments are coming from both sides. As for GDP, I do not argue. The essence of what happened is more important.

      This is not all the goodies for China from the United States after the INF Treaty’s rupture. Now pro-American countries near China will acquire all types of INF systems. They will not fight at the USA themselves, but they will arm China.

      I did not understand you. If China attacks, then Taiwan should not answer, otherwise they will "break"? Are you writing from the Czech Republic, or from Denmark? They surrendered without a fight ... The more such missiles on the island, the more S-400s China needs, they do not rely too much on their systems ... The longer the Taiwan issue exists, the less the threat from China for us.

        Excuse me, and whose nuclear missile arsenal is more powerful? The Russian is more powerful than the Chinese. So who is the threat to whom?

          Do not tell me, and the Chinese. For the threat of one arsenal is not enough. Need more interest. What is Russia's interest in capturing, say, Manchuria? But the capture of a deserted Trans-Urals, a sweet dream not only of China ...

            He’s a dream and a dream. Desires should coincide with the possibilities. After such an attempt, China will become deserted in the Trans-Urals. Maybe China’s interest in this?

      You are somewhat wrong, the hatred between them erases over time once articles about peaceful unification of the article pop up. Would you tell the Chinese about the world with Taiwanese about 30 years ago ...

    I think in Taiwan they don’t understand what they’re doing
    Do they really think that China will calmly endure a missile base near it, which holds large cities at gunpoint? If they limited themselves to weapons of defense on the water and the near zone, there would be a chance that China would lag behind, but with the presence of such weapons, China would 101% plan to finally solve the issue of Taiwan independence, since he is the strongest threat to China, along with the US nuclear strike. Even India is less dangerous.
