Alarming conclusions. The US Congress is preparing a new report on the military capabilities of China.

For the first time in stories Strategic nuclear deterrent forces of China’s sea-based basement will get closer to acquiring initial combat readiness, the upcoming report of the US Congress on China Commission said in November, Defense News reported November 12.


At the end of this year, operational deployment of new JL-2 solid-propelled SLBMs with a range of 4000 miles (7400 km), which will allow China to deliver nuclear strikes on the continental US, is expected. The missiles will be deployed on two of the three built-in SSBNs Type 094 "Jin". By 2020, the PLA Navy can adopt two more strategic submarines of this class. China also is deploying two new types of submarines - the multipurpose Type 095 and the strategic Type 096. It is noted that US military facilities on about. Guam is already within the reach of Chinese conventional missiles.

In June of this year, the PLA Air Force adopted the 15 new bomber H-6K with increased flight range (in the photo) capable of carrying long-range cruise missiles. In addition, China is working to increase the range of anti-ship anti-ship missiles of the type DF-21D from 810 miles (1500 km) to 1600 miles (3000 km). These missiles can threaten US warships throughout the western Pacific.

China conducted a successful take-off and landing of the J-15 carrier-based fighter aircraft on the Liaoning aircraft carrier. In November, the first group of fighter pilots was trained on 2012. As expected, the first aircraft carrier regiment J-15 will begin operation during the 2015-2016 period.

The report mentions other "impressive achievements" of China in the construction of surface combatants. In 2012, two new classes of ships were launched - the 052D rocket destroyers Lüyang-3 and the Jingdao 056 corvettes. Rocket destroyers 052С “Lyuyang-2” and missile frigates 054А “Jiankai-2” are under construction.

Probably, by 2015, China will firmly take the second place in the world in the number of built warships and their commissioning after the end of the Cold War. By the 2020 year, if the US does not activate its naval program, China may take first place in the world in the construction of submarines, surface ships and boats.

One of the alarming findings of the report is the suggestion that during 5-10 years China can change the strategic balance in Asia in its favor after decades of American military superiority. While US military and diplomatic representatives are “working feverishly” to improve Sino-US relations, Beijing is rapidly building up its ability to attack the United States and its allies.

        15 new N-6K bombers


        Not to be confused with the N-6 and Tu-16.

        The biggest external difference between the H-6K and the H-6 is the fighter-type nose section, made of composite material. The aircraft received new onboard systems and avionics in the form of six color multi-function displays, in the tail section instead of the 23 mm gun-mount system, an EW system was installed. The bomber has an advanced data transmission system, a new on-board radar, some work has been done to reduce the aircraft's visibility.
        The payload of the H-6K is increased to 12 t (H-6 - 9 t) due to the suspension of modern CJ-10A cruise missiles (to 6 on underwing pylons, "working speed of the missile" from 1,5 to 2,5М, 500M conventional equipment), the accuracy of hitting the target is less than 10 m) and guided bombs with satellite and laser targeting to carry out targeted strikes at sea and land targets. The aircraft is equipped with more powerful engines, which significantly increased the combat radius (more than 3500 km, flight range increased to 8000 km compared to 6000 km from H-6). The reach of enemy targets using CR increased to 6200 km, which gave the bombers a real strategic potential for striking back.

      By 2020, if the US does not step up its naval program, China could take first place in the world for the construction of submarines, surface ships and boats.
      Apparently, the Americans are stepping on the rake of the USSR when there was an arms race. The budget will sooner or later crack with costs, although it is still cracking at all seams.

        It would be better if they together (China and the USA) step on a rake, preferably at a time.

            America has never fought one-on-one with an equal rival. Rather, the Anglo-Saxons will do everything to play off China with Russia, and then finish off the survivor. The second option is to raise the entire APR against China (like NATO to Afghanistan). The third option, America will leave the "unipolar" orbit by means of an international "bikekot".

        Yes, China is still far from the United States, even considering the reduction of the US military budget by 88 billion. in year!

        The military budgets of countries for 2013:

        US 461,900 billion

        China 114,200 billion

        Russia 71,200 billion

    For the first time in the country's history, China’s offshore strategic nuclear-deterrence forces are approaching initial combat readiness, the upcoming report of the US Congress Commission on China says.

    The report is "forthcoming", but already known. "Controlled information leakage" is what it is called, they prepare their people for the fact that they have to "pay" and A LOT ...

      Here we are soon to be afraid, we still have to swim to the Americans, fly!
      An interesting fact: there are roughly 1,5 billion Chinese on earth, 365 days a year, if you kill 4 million daily in battle !!!! (which is probably unrealistic without nuclear weapons), this can be done in a year, but within a year they will still multiply !!! So defeating them without nuclear weapons is most likely impossible ...

        why destroy them? and even 4 million a day.

        There’s simply not enough land for a funeral, or so many corpses at once - the earth will not accept.

    Exactly what for now. With them it is necessary to "keep an ear". Very quickly they are building up their armament and a critical moment may come.

      This is pure Tu-16, and subsequently civil Tu-104, on which I flew to Simferopol from Novosibirsk in the 70s.







      The Chinese never had their own planes, only photocopies!

        By the way, it’s enough for anyone to reach us. Comrades follow our path, we also copied when we couldn’t do it ourselves for various reasons (civil and 2nd world basically). But then they riveted their own. We, too, cannot but be bothered by the strengthening of the army in a state with common borders and well-known internal problems. So you need to keep this in mind (with your army).

        Haha, I can imagine what kind of cultural shock a person who set you up with mins was experiencing when I found out that the only strategic celestial bomber is the licensed old man Tu16. Apparently he had a nervous tick, when it turned out that the world's first passenger jet plane, on which Nikita Sergeyev made a splash in the United States, was really a strategic bomber, who, roughly speaking, had installed passenger seats and cut out portholes)))). when it turned out that the Tu104 turbines located along the fuselage create a lot of noise in the cabin and interfere with passengers, a new aircraft was developed on the basis of the Tu104, in which the engines were located in the rear part, significantly reducing noise in the cabin and lengthened the fuselage itself. I think that after these words, the one who put the minus should go and just shoot himself, because almost everything knows the grandson of Tu16, this is the good old Tu134 - the workhorse of the Soviet Aeroflot)))

    In the photo, not the H-6K, but the usual H-6. The H-6K has a radar installed in the nose, there is no bomb gate, because the entire internal volume is occupied by fuel and electronic warfare equipment, all weapons on an external sling.

    But it is not clear that the Chinese are strengthening their army. Moreover, given that the work, even of qualified specialists, costs much less than in the states, it is possible to multiply the figure of 114,2 billion in real terms by 2 times (in any case, the part that goes to purchase weapons).
