"Did not pose a threat": The US commented on the imitation of the PLA air attack on the American AUG

The Chinese bombers simulating an attack on the American aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt and escort ships posed no threat. This was announced by the Indo-Pacific Command of the US Armed Forces.


The command commented on the military exercises held on January 23, 2021 aviation The PLA, during which Chinese bombers used an American aircraft carrier group located in the Taiwan area as a potential target. Despite the fact that the PLA Air Force Xian H-6 bomber pilots confirmed receiving orders for targets and launching anti-ship missiles at them, the US military did not consider this a threat.

The Theodore Roosevelt Aircraft Carrier Strike Group closely monitored all activities of the Chinese People's Liberation Army and the Chinese Air Force, and at no time did they pose a threat to ships, aircraft or sailors of the US Navy

- said in a statement.

At the same time, Pentagon officials have traditionally accused China of obstructing free navigation in international waters and using the PLA as a "tool of intimidation."

Chinese aircraft and naval forces conducted exercises in the area of ​​Taiwan, which they consider to be their territory. According to the Ministry of Defense of Taiwan, the PLA Air Force combat aircraft on January 23 and 24, 2021, repeatedly entered the island's air defense zone. For two days, 26 Chinese fighters and bombers participating in the maneuvers were near Taiwan.

      That is, they still consider the PLA and its aviation as a threat?

      And so yes - "did not feel the threat, everyone was in diapers"...

    Well, in peacetime, for sure.
    Interestingly, the Chinese with the Yankees have an agreement on the prevention of incidents at sea?
    Under such an agreement, it is not allowed to direct weapons and guidance stations at each other, as well as take them for escort.

                Ground complexes give high only at the range or on a real target, "give high - shoot".

                Probably!

                But about the ships - it's for sure that weapons are not pointed at each other.
                But on the plane, as I was told by frame one, "Pennant" firing artillery station (megawatt in impulse, the pilot just feels the kidneys) cut in, so it faded faster than its own squeal. Although it could have been a Japanese fighter.

    at no point in time did they pose a threat to ships, aircraft or sailors of the US Navy
    This was probably said due to the fact that the Americans understood that this was an imitation of a strike, which means that it poses no real threat. And in fact, the Americans, of course, feel a real threat from the PRC, therefore, along with Russia, they added their adversary (enemy) to the list.

      The first Chinese machine, built from Soviet parts, took off for the first time at the end of September 1959., and was transferred to the Chinese Air Force early the next year. In China, the aircraft was named H-6 (Hongzhaji-6 - bomber number 6). Starting in 1961, the main production of the H-6 was focused on the newly built Xian aircraft plant.The last modification of the N-6 (and, therefore, the Tu-16) was the N-21K missile carrier created in the 6st century (!). This machine is equipped with economical Russian D-30KP-2 by-pass engines with a thrust of 12500 kg (as we remember, the AM-3 thrust was 9000 kg), which made it possible to increase the altitude and speed characteristics, flight range and payload. The N-6K can carry six Russian-made Kh-55 strategic cruise missiles, equipped with a nuclear warhead and having a range of up to 2500 km. It should be noted that in domestic aviation these missiles are used from our main and most modern carriers: Tu-95MS, Tu-160 and Tu-22M3.

      see there ...
      No wonder we armed the Chinese with our equipment

      A controversial statement ... MTC between the USSR and the PRC was interrupted for many years at one time and resumed only in the era of the decline of the Soviet empire ... after the events of the 89th year, the Western sanctions against the PRC have not disappeared ...
      All of the above has borne fruit, 2/3 of the PLA's aircraft fleet is aviation rubbish ....

      Not at all. According to VIKI: there are 130 of them in the Air Force and 47 in the Chinese Navy, of which missile carriers (H-6K) - 50 units, all in the Air Force.
      Chinese Air Force - at least 50 H-6K, 70 H-6H / M and 10 H-6U as of 2016
