Military Review

China’s military sites on Google Earth satellite imagery


Traditionally, the authorities of the People's Republic of China very strictly censor information concerning their armed forces. Unauthorized leaks in this area are stopped by the most stringent methods. For example, a few years ago a Chinese blogger was convicted for posting a photo of a new Chinese fighter J-10 on the network. Moreover, the fact of mass production and entry of aircraft into service is easily fixed by means of space reconnaissance. Recently, these aircraft participated in demonstration flights at MAKS-2013 in Zhukovsky.

At present, China is the only one of the five great powers, the permanent members of the UN Security Council and the recognized five nuclear powers, which does not provide any official information about its armed forces, including nuclear means.

The official rationale for such secrecy is that the Chinese nuclear forces are few and technically incomparable with the nuclear weapons of other five countries, and therefore, in order to maintain its nuclear deterrence potential, China needs to maintain uncertainty about its SNF.

At the same time, China is the only one of the great powers that, at an official level, made a commitment not to be the first to use nuclear weapons, without any reservations. This commitment is accompanied by some vague unofficial explanations (probably sanctioned by the authorities) that, in peacetime, Chinese nuclear warheads are kept separate from missiles. It also states that in the event of a nuclear strike, the task is to deliver the warheads to the carriers within two weeks and strike back against the aggressor.

In view of the complete closeness of official data, all assessments of the PRC nuclear assets are based on information from foreign government and private sources. So, for some of them, China has about 130 strategic ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads. They include 35 old stationary-based ICBMs of the Dongfang-4 / 5А type and 15 of the old stationary medium-range ballistic missiles (MRSD) of the Dongfang-3А type. Also deployed about 25 new ground-mobile ICBMs of the “Dongfang-31A” type (the Chinese equivalent of the Russian Topol missile) and 60 new ground-mobile MRSD “Dongfang-21”. The medium-range missiles are aimed mainly at Russia, in relation to which they are strategic, as well as at American bases in the Asia-Pacific region.

The deployment of the newest DF-31A began in the 2007 year, in the 2010 year, around 10 missiles and as many launchers were in service. According to US intelligence estimates, at present, China, taking into account DF-20A 5 silo-based rockets, has “less 50 rockets” that can reach the territory of the continental US. American intelligence believes that fewer XFUMX DF-25A missiles are currently deployed.

As part of the modernization of its strategic forces, China is moving from obsolete liquid rockets to new solid-fuel ones. New systems are more mobile and therefore less vulnerable to enemy attacks.

But by all indications, Chinese mobile complexes are more vulnerable than Russian ones. The central regions of the People's Republic of China, in contrast to Russia, do not have large forests where rocket complexes could take shelter during the daytime. Mobile launcher is large. Its maintenance requires significant human resources and a large number of support equipment. This makes its fast movement limited and relatively easily detectable by means of space reconnaissance.

Mobile launch complexes, of course, will be dispersed in the event of war. But, despite the fact that they have some off-road capabilities, solid, smooth surfaces are required to launch rockets. As a result, launch complexes will have to remain on the roads or be used from ready-made launch sites, which are clearly highlighted on high-resolution satellite images. In addition, the launcher cannot simply be driven off and launch itself, it should all happen with the support of t means of orientation, repair and communication.

Satellite images show that China is creating launch positioning areas for its new road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missiles DF-31 / 31A in the central part of the country. Several launchers of the new DF-31 / 31A MBRs appeared in two districts of the eastern part of Qinghai Province in June 2011.

Over the next decade, older rockets with a shorter range will be written off and replaced with DF-31 / 31A. With the arrival of the new ICBMs, most of the Chinese missile forces will be able to aim at the continental part of the United States and, possibly, by the year 2025, their number will double. But even by that time, the Chinese nuclear missile potential will be significantly inferior to the potential of Russia and the United States.

The air component of the PRC’s SNF is represented by the H-6 aircraft, which are the Chinese version of the Tu-16 bomber created in the USSR in the middle of the 50's.

Currently, several dozen aircraft of this type have been upgraded by installing modern avionics and D-30KP-2 turbofan engines. The combat load is 12 000 kg. A bomber capable of carrying 6 cruise missiles CJ-10A (copy X-55). But even the modernized version with cruise missiles and modern fuel efficient engines cannot be considered a strategic bomber. In the zone of its reach: Eastern Siberia, Transbaikalia and the Far East. As of the beginning of the 2013 of the year, there were about 120 H-6 aircraft of various modifications in service.

Modernization of the H-6 is conducted at an aircraft factory in Xi'an.

The maritime component is just beginning to form and consists of one SSNB of type 80 “Xia” (Xia) built in 092, which never went to sea for combat patrols.

Four submarines of Jin 094 Ave. have been recently built and put into operation.

In total, China’s nuclear arsenal is estimated to be approximately 180 – 240 warheads, making it the 4 or 3 nuclear power after the US and the RF (and possibly France), depending on the accuracy of the available unofficial estimates. Chinese nuclear warheads are mainly classified as a fusion class with a power range of 200 kt - 3,3 Mt. There is no doubt that the economic and technical potential of the PRC allows for a rapid build-up of nuclear missiles throughout the entire range of their classes.

In service with the Chinese Air Force about 4 thousand combat aircraft (up to 500-600 units can be carriers of nuclear weapons), of which more than 3 thousand fighters, about 200 bombers.

The aircraft and helicopter fleet is equipped with predominantly Russian (Soviet) manufacturers: MiG-21, Su-27, Su-30MKK, Su-30MK2, Il-76, An-12, Mi-8. However, there are also self-developed airplanes - the Q-5 and JH-7 drums, the lightweight J-10 fighter.

Mass production of the most modern and efficient J-11В (Su-30МК) is conducted at the aircraft plant in Shenyang.

The scale of production is much larger than at the aircraft manufacturing plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. At the same time, the Chinese do not bother with the absence of a license.

On the basis of the Israeli fighter "Lavi" a lightweight fighter J-10 was created and manufactured at the aircraft factory in Chendu. It uses the Russian AL-31F engine.

In the same place, active work is underway to create its own 5 generation fighter.

On the basis of transport IL-76, Y-7 (AH-24), Y-8 (AH-12) DRLO airplanes were created and manufactured.

On satellite images it can be seen that in recent years, modern aircraft have practically ousted J-6 (MiG-19) and J-7 (MiG-21) airfields from the PRC.

At the same time as part of the marine aviation, N-5 bombers (IL-28) are still preserved.

Perhaps these aircraft are used as training or patrol.

In China, there is a very developed airfield network, especially in the east of the country. By the number of hard-surface airfields, China surpasses Russia. On arms SAM troops PRC PLA is 110-120 air defense systems (divisions) HQ-2, HQ-61, HQ-7, HQ-9, HQ-12, HQ-16, C-300PMU, C-300PMU-1 and 2, for a total of about 700 PU.

ZRK S-300 in Qingdao

By this indicator, China is second only to our country (around 1500 PU).

HQ-6D air defense system in Changju area

A year ago, at least one third of this number of Chinese air defense missile systems accounted for the outdated HQ-2 (analogous to the C-75 air defense system), now there are no more than 10% of the total.

Positions ЗРК НQ-2 (С-75)

Outdated air defense missile systems are being actively decommissioned and modern systems are deployed in their positions.

China has four spaceports (one under construction). In 1967, Mao Zedong decided to start developing his own manned space program. The first Chinese spacecraft "Shuguang-1" was supposed to send two astronauts into orbit as early as 1973. Especially for him in the Sichuan province, near the city of Xichang, the construction of a cosmodrome began.

The location of the launch pad was chosen according to the principle of maximum distance from the Soviet border. After the funding for the project was reduced in 1972, and several leading scientists were repressed during the cultural revolution, the project was closed. The construction of the spaceport resumed after a decade, ending in 1984 year.

Taiyuan Space Center - located in the northern province of Shanxi, near the city of Taiyuan.

Valid from 1988 year. The area of ​​its territory is 375 sq. Km. The launch site, a launcher, a maintenance tower and two liquid fuel storages are located. Jiuquan Spaceport - operates from 1958 year. Located on the edge of the Badan-Jilin Desert in the lower reaches of the Heihe River in Gansu Province, it is named after the Jiuquan city located in 100 kilometers from the spaceport.

It is the largest spaceport of China (up to 1984 of the year - the only one) and the only one used in the national manned program.

Also performs launches of military missiles. Landfill at the cosmodrome has an area of ​​2800 km²

There are also large air test sites and an air defense test center in the Badan-Jilin Desert.

As part of the Chinese Navy today is more than 200 large submarines and surface combat ships.

The largest is the aircraft carrier "Liaonin", the former "Varyag" - sold by Ukraine at the price of scrap metal in April 1998 of the year.

In 2005, the ship was dry-docked in Dalian and underwent intensive modernization and completion during the 6 years.

10 August 2011, the ship first entered the sea trials that lasted 4 of the day.
On September 25, the aircraft carrier was officially accepted into the PLA Navy under the name “Liaoning” and the tail number 16.

Prior to that, Chinese specialists already had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the former Soviet aircraft carriers.

Airborne cruiser "Kiev" turned into a floating casino

In the middle of 90-x in Russia were bought, also at the price of scrap "Minsk" and "Kiev".

For practicing takeoff and landing on the deck of an aircraft carrier, in one of the central regions of the People's Republic of China a concrete model of an aircraft carrier was built in full size.

The number of naval aviation exceeds 400 helicopters and aircraft.

    In total, China’s nuclear arsenal is estimated at about 180–240 warheads ... Something is haunting me with vague doubts about this. If it is assumed that Israel has up to 300 warheads, then China, with its capabilities, and taking into account the time during which they possess nuclear technology, should have a slightly larger arsenal.
    1. Bongo
      18 September 2013 11: 37
      Israel’s 300 warheads are clearly overpriced, where does the data come from? And why is this country so much? It is seen with such an amount of imbalance between the means of delivery and the number of warheads.
      In China, on the contrary, the number of warheads roughly corresponds to the available carriers. Forget it, all Chinese MBR-monoblock.

        As for Israel, I agree, but the PRC, although the number of warheads is limited by the lack of raw materials (tritium, plutonium), I think there are still more than 200 warheads.

          This is the official Chinese doctrine, a significant part of their nuclear weapons and carriers are stored in rocky fortified shelters and can not be used in the back-to-back strike.

            Certainly, the Chinese compensate for their small number of warheads and not "all-encompassing" by the location of their strike installations in buried rocky, but simply piedmont shelters, from where, after a nuclear strike, the installations will be able to leave, turn around and strike retaliation. forces of the PLA, as a rule, their motorized rifle or other formations are located there. A whole network of false shelters with its own infrastructure and security has been created. In addition, the missile unit, possessing a similar network of shelters, can get out of the regular and "dissolve". Such exercises are carried out constantly. Where in at this point in time, the PLA missile forces are located, not a single intelligence agency of the states that are closely monitoring this "mouse fuss" will answer with full confidence. The question fully arises - is China afraid to carry out a ground military operation against its northern neighbor? which is not a completely unambiguous answer .. There will be no answer to all questions ... China, he is such China ...

I would not call it a betrayal, the leadership is frantically looking for a way out of the extremely difficult situation on DalVO.

                  The superiority of the Russian Federation in ICBMs can be successfully countered by the PRC with a large number of IRBMs, which are strategic in relation to Russia. And it is not at all a fact that our "leadership" in the event of a conflict will decide on the full-scale use of nuclear weapons. For fears that it will "arrive" in Moscow, the Far East can simply "donate".

          the picture is notable, I’d also add the tiger killed by the Chinese dragonmen --- bad, in this view it looks very different to save the Far Eastern cats. He said --- did not. He said that only the final products would be sent for the cordon, driven The border is crossed by armed groups --- in response to the salvation of Irbis. I agree with you, the Tsar is talking nonsense .., but the Tsar’s change in Russia threatens with even greater shock. Red and white, etc. Dead situation. Mortar plug.

            I have not seen tigers, but in this photo, if you look closely, you can see a sable. As for the "king", he does not behave like a king. More like a temporary worker or a representative of the occupation power.
            13 years of "kingdom" is more than enough time to change the situation in the country for the better. Has it changed, is the country developing steadily? So we cannot avoid the change of the "tsar" and the sooner the better for the country. Maybe the next one will think more about the country and the welfare of the people living in it.

              on the first channel there was a news clip showing how a trap in a tree is being "stuffed with bacon", a digger comes up interested, an explosion and a muzzle.

              I also do not like our prezik, but his replacement and change of power is 17 years old and everything was behind him. I’m not a great thinker, but such a way out, when power in the city is "held" by revolutionary sailors, with bayonets at the ready enter your apartment, where In the next room, a one-year-old child is sniffing, and in front of us is a bearded shuttle in a leather jacket and with a revolver. Troubled days. Here is a document reflecting the state and mood of Brother's dear brother. Cardinal changes are vital - he drank a bobble and poppulism has not brought anyone to good unfortunately Russia is like a cat. You stroke her like, and she strenuously wags her tail from side to side. The worse, history does not tolerate temporary workers, it only has the ability to repeat itself

    If the Chinese are not fools (and they are clearly not fools, not that genetics), then most of these pictures are theater and window dressing. They will not openly reveal their secrets.

    "War is a way of deception. If you can do anything, show the enemy that you cannot; if you do use something, show him that you are not using it; even though you are close, show that you are far; even though you were far away, show that you are close "

      Such images are much more convenient to view in Google Earth. Also, if there is a need for copying, the photo is obtained without frames. There is a lot of excess in your photos, not too aesthetically.

    The one hundred millionth well-armed army of China is even scary to imagine.
    I hope the quality of Chinese weapons does not far exceed the quality of flashlights, otherwise it’s time for us to learn Chinese.

      "I hope the quality of Chinese weapons is not much better than the quality of flashlights, otherwise we are in the edge and it's time to learn Chinese." Your words are alarmism, such as you give up immediately. Moreover, the Chinese have repeatedly proved that their weapon is bullshit - many export orders were thwarted, for example, Ecuador. It is unlikely to consider the version that they are on purpose, it is not profitable for them. In general, according to official data: the Chinese army is 280 million people. Russian army 31 million people and for comparison, equipment, for example, military helicopters, we have 10 times more. (if anyone knows, tell me how to change nickname)

      In the vast expanses of Russia is also full of military facilities. No less than China. And we have entire underground cities or military bases.

    Why such extremes that otherwise the "tsar" cannot be changed? Remember who heard about him 13 years ago, who was he? I got out of the "emptiness", so I don't believe in its "irreplaceability". This is being hammered into the heads of the pro-government media.

    "the task is to deliver the warheads to the carriers and strike back at the aggressor within two weeks."
    Yes, in 2 weeks from China as a state, nothing remains! The Chinese are lying.
