"Destroyer drove away": China announces invasion of American warship

25

Chinese aviation and the navy forced the US Navy's battle pennant to “retreat,” which allegedly violated state borders.


The PLA on Thursday drove away an American warship that invaded the territorial waters of the PRC near the Xisha Islands in the South China Sea, not far from the exercises held there related to the combat launches of anti-ship ballistic missiles

- says the Global Times.

According to the military, after the USS Mustin URO destroyer invaded the state, the PLA Southern Theater command sent naval and air forces to track the target, identify it and force it to leave the territorial waters of the PRC.

As expert Wei Dongxiu explained, Beijing has a powerful combat potential to defend its sovereignty in the South China Sea, including its naval and air components.

This week it was already the second case of provocative actions by the United States. On Tuesday, a U-2 high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft entered the no-fly zone while the Chinese military carried out live fire exercises. As explained in the PLA, the American plane could be mistaken for a training target, which could lead to a disaster.

        American interest in Chinese launches is understandable. After all, China launched two missiles, DF-21D and DF-26B, "making it clear to Washington and the regional powers that they are not afraid of military confrontation if the United States throws a real challenge to China."
        DF-21D - anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM), which, according to the developers, is capable of destroying an aircraft carrier at a distance of up to 1550 km. It is also claimed that this Chinese missile is capable of penetrating shipborne missile defense systems, including Aegis Combat Systems.
        Rocket DF-26B has a range of up to 4 thousand km. According to the latest information, during the tests, it was released from a test site in the continental province of Qinghai, located thousands of kilometers from the coast. In the United States, this missile is defined as capable of causing serious damage to American military infrastructure on the island of Guam.

          Why did they send a destroyer, they would have waited when the DFs flew to the states, then get interested and disassemble them.

        They would have summoned the Chinese ambassador to the State Department and handed a note of protest. That would be the end of it.

          No way. Freemasons have plenty of tools to put pressure on China. Because, under the leadership of "K" PC, they rebuilt terry capitalism and became the main production of the global world, which is led by the rightful Politburo.
          It was the USSR that could demolish their U-2 and Boeings without fear of consequences, behind a steel wall we did not care about the quirks of the speculative market. The country was not prone to crises. The Gosplan clearly defined what and how much in accordance with the need and possibilities.

    It seems to me that if the Americans do not change their minds and do not understand this warning, then the next time this will happen ...

    They had every right to defend the borders of their state. And the Americans in this particular region are constantly provoking the Chinese under the guise of statements that they allegedly "promote free shipping."

    Well, tell the one who "announced" this news,
    let him write without these bells and whistles - "forced
    "Retreat" combat pennant ", it should be simpler,
    the usual Russian language.
    Anyway, do they raise on American ships
    this "battle pennant"?

      The pennant here means "ship in the campaign".

            I served a little in the Navy, for 30 years, and my brother served for 30 years, and my father,
            after graduating from the Frunze VMU, he also served for 30 years, so I
