Progress PLA worried about the Pentagon

Progress PLA worried about the Pentagon



Last Wednesday, the Pentagon reported to the US Congress on the state of affairs in the Chinese armed forces. In particular, the achievements of Chinese military developers over the past year were analyzed.

The report has a clear concern that the Chinese Communist Party is undertaking systematic work to finance the PLA (People’s Liberation Army of China) with a view to rearming and modernizing it. It cannot be said that the US military department fully perceives the Chinese army as its potential adversary, but the inherent cautiousness of the Americans is also evident. Thus, the representative of the Pentagon from the rostrum of the Congress said that already today the PLA has quite powerful MLRS, it is developing a new long-range ballistic missile capable of destroying targets, including in the United States and possessing a serious warhead. In addition, Chinese developers already this year presented a prototype aircraft, created on the basis of stealth technology. The speaker also claims that China has conducted a series of tests of its new marine technology, in particular, a modernized Soviet aircraft carrier.

In addition to the military gains openly demonstrated by the Chinese, the country, as the Americans say, is working on secret developments. In the context of modern globalization and the improvement of tracking systems, it is almost impossible to hide such activity from other countries.

The Pentagon is also worried about the fact that the Chinese military are leading the so-called cyber warfare, trying to get hold of the information contained on the hard drives of the PC of their potential adversaries. The military official did not speak directly about the theft of materials by the Chinese in cyberspace, but the notorious resource WikiLeaks has already published several articles with facts about the diversion of materials from the US military servers that occurred in connection with the introduction of spyware into the system, allegedly produced in China. How much you can trust this data is not to be judged, but if such a leak took place, then the potential of the Chinese cyber system is really powerful. This may push the US military to new thoughts about the need to speed up information security as soon as possible.

China does not limit itself to ground and air military means. China’s plans have long been focused on outer space. Over the next 5 years, China is planned to increase its satellite constellation, including through military spacecraft with 100% filled with Chinese electronics.

The Pentagon also indicates a fairly high activity fleet China in the South China Sea, which can speak of a demonstration of forces neighboring Taiwan with China.

The report heard the words and a large percentage of outdated equipment, which is equipped with the Chinese army. However, the great progress of recent years in terms of updating the military-technical potential in China was also noted by the Americans.

    ] "The report has a clear concern that the Chinese Communist Party is systematically funding the PLA (People's Liberation Army of China) with a view to re-equipping and modernizing it."

    Why would this country finance and rearm its army, is it strange, right ??

    Hmm, even theoretically we cannot raise electronics - lag is fatal. I do not mean to buy a line for the production of wafers, but to make it ourselves. By the way, maybe someone not in the know, the Chinese only half a year ago mastered the whole process from raw materials to the chip. Before that, they needed Germany and the USA. Not anymore.

    The PLA should bother not only the Pentagon but also the Kremlin first of all, the United States has no borders with China and the Russian Federation has huge ones.

      There are no unresolved issues between the leadership of the Russian Federation and China, Taiwan is between the leadership of China and the USA. In the event of Chinese aggression against Russia, we will use nuclear weapons, which is clearly spelled out in the Military Doctrine. Is the US leadership ready to use nuclear weapons in the event of REHABILITATION of Taiwan by China?

        I recall that Germany and I had about the same thing that is now with China - friendship, concessions, the sale of resources from food to oil, even the joint division of Poland. And how it ended is well known.

        In the situation with such neighbors, there is only one criterion - who is stronger. Because China needs resources, and the further, the more, we are for it as a free source of everything.

            My suggestion is simple - to restore order within yourself in half a year. Then everything else - both the army and the military-industrial complex, everything will be pulled to the desired level, because soberness will be in everything.

          I do not agree !!! The relations of the Soviets with the Third Reich were equal. But the relationship of Erefii with China cannot be called such! Ours rent everything up to their own territories !!!

        You hope you have not forgotten that China also has nuclear weapons + use and help to proliferate nuclear weapons are prohibited as well as chemical weapons.

          I have a club and you have a club, but I have a piece of meat, and you really want to eat. The question is, will you try to take away a piece of meat from me if you know that when you try to take away meat from me I will definitely kill you, is it more expensive for you to eat or life?

          I won’t be surprised if, after 50 years, Russia and China are accused of secret conspiracy to divide the spheres of influence and sign the Pact, which caused the new World War.

              In his interpretation, one who has meat will not die.

              "so the fact is that I will die, and you too, should you die because of this piece of meat?"

              So I say, an adequate person will go elsewhere to look for meat, but 140 million guards of meat will not help against an inadequate one, only a nuclear missile strike to destroy.

      "The PLA should bother not only the Pentagon but also the Kremlin first of all, the United States has no borders with China and the Russian Federation has huge ones." - When will the Russian General Staff report in the State Duma about the growing strength of the PLA? at the same time dozens of journalists will be present. And will the whole advanced community of Mother Russia enthusiastically discuss the facts from the report?

    in fact, we have these technologies and the guys are worse than the Chinese and Americans, the only thing that is needed is financing, but as they didn’t knock on the ministries, they didn’t offer their projects, they don’t pay attention to them ...

    Everything is simply funded, therefore it is developing. (Without intermediaries)

    Simply, the Chinese no longer want to be dictated to them, so they began to rearm, to dictate themselves!
