The US Navy commented on the presence of several aircraft carriers in the Philippine Sea

88

For the first time in a long time, three aircraft carrier strike groups (AUG) of the US Navy operated in the waters of the Philippine Sea. These are groups led by the aircraft carriers "Ronald Reagan" and "Nimitz" (located in the Philippine Sea at the moment), as well as the aircraft carrier "Theodore Roosevelt" (recently left the water area of ​​this sea).


In the USA they note that in this way "a signal was sent to China." This is "a signal that the US is standing guard over the interests of its allies in the region."

The command of the US Navy noted that the reduced number of crew members of the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt, on board which an outbreak of a coronavirus had previously been detected, "copes with all the tasks." One of the tasks reportedly is to demonstrate support for Taiwan, "which has recently been under Chinese pressure." What kind of "pressure" in question is not reported.

Earlier, the US administration for the first time allowed itself to officially congratulate the President of Taiwan on assuming office. Before that, the United States tried to maintain neutrality, at least in this regard. The gesture of the US administration provoked outrage in Beijing, where it was stated that Washington continues to act to divide the Chinese people. Recall that Beijing is making efforts to actually and legally unite with Taiwan. At the same time, China considers the island of Taiwan to be its territory.

The command staff of the American aircraft carrier Nimitz noted that operations with several aircraft carriers in the Philippine Sea showed the US’s ability to build up striking power in the Indo-Pacific region and "its readiness to withstand those who defied the United States and international standards."

      “What international norms-shake arms at the borders of another state thousands of miles from your own?”
      If you live in Russia and are interested in international affairs - the question. Has your country, Russia, been approached by Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia with complaints about China, which squeezes disputed territories / islands, expels / drowns the small fishing schooners of these countries that fish in these territories? On China, which lures in the disputed territories of the island and builds airfields on them and establishes air defense? Did these countries of Russia complain? And if not, then why?
      Probably because Russia deeply spit on these countries, Russia is busy satisfying the whims of China.

        In that case, the US shouldn't have to fuss either. For who is on the ball about all other countries - we know very well. And since the United States is still bustling, then your assumption is not correct. Where is the answer then? And the answer, as often happens, is on the surface. Using the defense of the "allies" as an excuse, the states climb with their weapons side by side with their own enemy. If at the same time the states substitute their "allies" - they deeply spit on that. Who, if not us, from which the states "protect" almost our entire perimeter, should clearly understand such things.

          The Tu-16 is a plane on which my father had also flown in search of enemy AUGs. But here’s the problem - since then the AUG technique has taken such a far step forward ... RCC You will not shoot at AUG with Spratly, but you cannot defend air defense on your own against a properly organized air raid.

And how have they been pointing their ballistic anti-ship missiles for 20 years? America overslept China and we must put up with it.

                  Poseidon is an atomic torpedo that may well exist at the current level of technology. The same goes for hypersonic missiles. But so far no one has managed to come up with a ballistic missile warhead guidance system for a moving target, neither we nor the Americans. And do you seriously believe that the Chinese have dealt with this?

                    according to the logic of things should ...

                    we have not yet seen real hypersonic (not ballistic in space) missiles, no one has created them yet and put them into service. The same goes for underwater wunderwafers (which supposedly can plow the world's oceans and undermine the nuclear charge at the hour of the adversary’s hour), but as I understand it, it doesn’t bother you .. but the ballistic missile guidance system is certainly something fantastic, if only said Russia, then another thing would be taken on faith, but if the Chinese then immediately fake))
                    Did the Americans really try? In my opinion, in recent decades they have scored ballistic missiles, unlike China, which has been working very hard and very long on this topic. And I fully admit that they could come up with something that would allow their brdsd to hit moving targets .. I certainly also have doubts about this, but I think this is no more a fantasy than poseydons, zircons, petrels and others like them .

                  What is the positioning signal? :))) What are you talking about? :)))
                  The GPS system works as follows - the signal receiver measures the propagation delay of the signal from the satellite to the receiver. From the received signal, the receiver receives data on the location of the satellite. To determine the distance from the satellite to the receiver, the signal delay is multiplied by the speed of light. Signals from three satellites provide data on latitude and longitude, the fourth satellite gives information about the height of the object above the surface. The obtained values ​​can be reduced to a system of equations from which the user coordinate can be found. Thus, to obtain the exact location, it is necessary to carry out 4 measurements of the distances to the satellite (if unlikely results are excluded, three measurements are enough).
                  That is, in principle, no "positioning signal" is needed to determine its own position.

                The idea of ​​the Chinese to hit the AHG with a ballistic missile is (they themselves could have come up with, good people might have suggested) a repetition of the Soviet experience (in the late 70s, more precisely in 1977, there was a submarine-driven missile carrier with a missile defense).

It became clear that even with nuclear warheads, the tool is, to put it mildly, unreliable. Makeevtsy realized the need to create a warhead that could homing in the atmospheric phase of the flight, and began development, but did not come to success, and then the project was canceled. In principle, if they were given more time ... who knows, maybe they would have come up with it.

            Yes, and the radius of carrier-based aviation, so far leaves much to be desired. To use it, you must first neutralize the radar, MAPL and diesel-electric submarines, air defense aviation. The task is not easy, with the high echelon of the above.
            And about land aviation: Korea, Vietnam, Argentina, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan. Everywhere, the ratio of both the effectiveness and the number of land sorties was much higher than the decks.

              And I always expected the best. Nevertheless, not to destroy, but to find AUG was a very difficult task.

              To use it, you must first neutralize the radar, MAPL and diesel-electric submarines, air defense aviation.

              Without SMRTS MAPL and DEPL will not be where it is needed, but the radar will still be suppressed during an airstrike. In general, I’ll say simpler - the USSR at the time had a much larger and higher-quality fleet than China today, but the task of identifying and destroying AOGs was considered extremely difficult - it was aerobatics, which we sometimes succeeded (in exercises, esessno), and sometimes not. China, which has ships, has aircraft of outdated models, but there is no school of sailors who went through the Cold War there are practically no chances to defeat the AUG.

              And about land aviation: Korea, Vietnam, Argentina, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan. Everywhere, the ratio of both the effectiveness and the number of land sorties was much higher than the decks.

              First, you replaced one question with another. I wrote about direct combat clashes between land and naval deck aviation. So the deck always won. And as for efficiency, you are completely wrong, because of the number of sorties, etc. ONE PLANE deck-based aviation does not lose ground. They flew with the same intensity as the land explorers in Iraq.

                Yes, at the same VO there was an analysis of the use of carrier-based aircraft in Iraq, only 8-10% of the coalition’s sorties, in one campaign, and in the second. At the same aircraft carrier it is impossible to maintain the same supply of fuel, weapons and spare parts, as at the earth's airfield. An elementary problem of logistics, but the steam in the turbine is not endless. This is funny. Last time, carrier-based aircraft won the American-Japanese war, at the moment it is only an auxiliary force, it has become clear since Vietnam.
                A radar and air defense will sleep peacefully with air defense systems? And wait for them to work on aircraft with a combat radius of 300-400 km, which is generally not amenable to criticism. Once again, one should not consider the Chinese as untrained boots of the times of the USSR of the 70-80s

                      He said that if an aircraft carrier wants to bomb the coast, then there are no examples to date that the coast has fought off. And it’s clear why.
                      You begin to point out that when the Yankees want to get someone to jam, you are happy to use land aviation. The statement is understandable, but how does this relate to what Andrei said about the results of a possible clash between the state aircraft carrier and land Chinese aircraft? No way. Different topics.
                      Well, the statistics you refer to (where the number of land departures is greater) is simply because there were much more land planes than aircraft carriers. Therefore, there are more departures. hi

                        Well, and where are the examples of bombed shores? The intensity of the use of aviation and the density of the use of SVPs are key! It is necessary to ensure the density and mass of the SVP, which only land aviation is capable of. Due to its logistic mobility and freedom in choosing SVP. It was necessary to study operational art, back in the academy. Tactical AUG can solve short-term tasks in a narrow area, but will be quickly suppressed very quickly

You compare warm with soft - it’s clear that land aircraft flew more, because there were much more than aircraft carriers :) But the analysis shows that the decked aircraft practically does not lose to the land one in terms of intensity of use.

                And second, it's too early to criticize you, you need to learn the materiel. Read about the Kamchatka Pearl-Khrabor in 1982, when the USSR Pacific Fleet, in all the greatness of its power (no jokes), with its hundreds of aircraft and ships, with data from a special satellite system "Liana", capable of broadcasting intelligence data in almost real time, with aircraft AWACS (Tu-95RTs, though not Hawkai, but still) "safely" slept through an aircraft carrier strike force (Enterprise and Midway), consisting of more than 30 ships that approached 300 miles southeast of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and carried out flights of carrier-based aircraft at a distance of 150 km from our coast.

                    This has happened thousands of times. For example, TAVKR "Kiev" in combat service in Mediterranean for about 2,5 months (from late March to early June 1985) during this time contacted Legend 300 times, thanks to which it detected about 1 naval targets, including the Eisenhower aircraft carriers " Clemenceau "and" Foch ". Sometimes the information from the satellite was used simply for reconnaissance purposes, and sometimes - to develop target designations for missiles. Kiev's missile crews worked out the CO 000 times. That is, it was a routine job with which our sailors "had fun" several times a day :)))

                      Legend (as befits any Soviet legend) is shrouded in many legends). In real time- this is one of them. It's just a radar that transmitted to the ground everything that it "saw" during the flight. And on the ground, a lot of people and equipment of the environment of hundreds of thousands of signatures were looking for something similar to an aircraft carrier, etc. Then they sent aviation to the proposed area for additional reconnaissance .The approximate time interval in the process is from many hours to many days. And target designation for missiles is not even a legend, but a fable)

                      You are greatly mistaken. The fact is that the "Legend" was taught to select well the targets it sees. So when the satellite flew over the search area, it transmitted data not to the ground, but directly to the board of the warship. There was a second lag behind real time, and the control center for missiles was prepared without problems.

All these political games have nothing to do with AB's capabilities. Just as the armies of England and France, together with the armed forces of Czechoslovakia, could easily have revived Herr Hitler in 1938, Chamberlain and Daladier preferred the Munich Agreement.

        An interesting approach. You urge not to confuse that which may fully manifest itself only in conjunction... If there is no political decision to use the fleet, then this fleet will simply hang out in the waters of the seas and oceans, acting as a scarecrow. At the same time, the adoption of a political decision will be successful when the power component is involved in its implementation, which includes the fleet. I understand that you are considering the US AUG solely in the context of its combat capabilities, but the fact is that the United States will never again use it against China, since its capabilities to counter the United States have changed a lot over the past 30 years, and not in favor of mattresses ...

        It depends on what is meant by sufficient forces. What is the use of the French having sufficient armed forces if France surrendered 1 month and 12 days after the German invasion? So the mattresses have a bunch of aircraft carriers, and they can only use them in relation to countries such as the Philippines, Cuba or Peru, since they do not have sufficient capabilities and resources to counteract, and use them against those countries that they relate to their geopolitical opponents their gut is thin, because the outcome of the war in their favor is not obvious.

          I understand that you are considering the AUG of the USA solely in the context of its combat capabilities, but the fact is that the USA will never go to its use against China

          Agree, these are two different questions. One thing is the effectiveness of the ACG in the event of a real military operation against the Chinese fleet, and quite another is the political circumstances as a result of which such an operation can (or cannot) be carried out.
          As you rightly noted, I am considering ONLY the first question.

          It depends on what is meant by sufficient forces. What is the use of the French having sufficient armed forces if France surrendered 1 month and 12 days after the German invasion?

          Because in 1940, the Wehrmacht was superior to the head of the combined Anglo-French army. But the fact is that the Wehrmacht of the 1940 model was several times stronger than the Wehrmacht arr 1939, which invaded Poland, and what the Germans had in 1938 and was not suitable for the soles of the armed forces of the 1939 model. By the way, if you wish , I can send you Muller-Hillebrand, his work on the Wehrmacht is considered a classic (almost no politics, only statistical facts)
          In those years, German military power grew by leaps and bounds ...

          So the mattresses have a bunch of aircraft carriers, and they can only use them in relation to countries such as the Philippines, Cuba or Peru, since they do not have sufficient capabilities and resources to counteract, and use them against those countries that they relate to their geopolitical opponents they have a small intestine

          And why not?

          since the outcome of the war in their favor is not obvious.

          In chance with China - it is quite obvious. Sorry, but the United States still has enough nuclear power to force China to peace and has enough forces to resolve any territorial dispute outside of China’s borders by conventional force.
          The question is different. An attack on another country is carried out not with the aim of defeating it, but with the aim of achieving as a result of this victory a peace that would be better for the aggressor country than pre-war. Otherwise, aggression and victory simply lose their meaning. So, an attack on China to America will not give such a world - and therefore they will not attack. Guts and other appendixes have nothing to do with it.

            Obviously, because the United States does not need a victory achieved at any cost just for the sake of victory. when deciding on the outbreak of hostilities, they are guided by two criteria - the acceptable or unacceptable damage that they may receive during the war and in its finale. It will be cheaper for them if they use financial and economic instruments in the form of sanctions, embargoes, blockades, etc. In principle, you yourself said this only in other words.

    Yes, they got it with their signals. The Chinese did not receive the signal and demand to repeat, they will call the square for the signal to be sent. But they do not guarantee that they will receive it, the passage is poor.

      Who told you such nonsense? Take an interest in the experience of the USSR, which usually based on no more than one air regiment at one airbase.

      At the ground airfield there is a strip over a kilometer (sometimes more than one) plus taxiing, shelter hangars, it can occupy 2-3 square kilometers in area, several planes can take off at the same time, the aircraft carrier against it is clearly losing.

    In the USA they note that in this way "a signal was sent to China."

    And can you fax these signals by fax? Or by mail with a delivery receipt at worst. One kerosene would save a bunch of bucks.

      Interestingly, the Su-27, Su-33, MiG29, Su-35 low-quality air force? Despite the fact that the flight time of the Chinese is higher than the American. Although the Hornet is a great aircraft, but at least the number of sides is much larger and the sides are no worse and the training of pilots is comparable.

        Eh ... You do not read what they write to you at all?
        It’s not enough to have airplanes.
        Still need to have at all levels of management personnel with experience in combat use.
        The Yankees have them in such quantity and quality that the PRC has not dreamed of. Until.

          I wonder where did you get this? Or do you think that combat training is not carried out in the PLA? We can also say then that kerosene is burned into the air for beauty. Air darts show that the Chinese comrades are quite at a high level.

            You have no relation to the army.
            Therefore, you ask such questions.
