US presence in the APR strengthened by the second aircraft carrier

33
The USA strengthened its presence in the Asia-Pacific region by the second aircraft carrier John C. Stennis, reports RIA News the message agency rhenhap.




In Japan, the port of Yokosuka is another aircraft carrier - Ronald Reagan.

“Aircraft carrier John C. Stennis left the home port of Bremerton, WA, on January 15 and will be in the western Pacific for 7 months due to North Korean nuclear tests and regional confrontation around disputed islands in the South China Sea,” the agency said .

It is assumed that John C. Stennis, who "went through 18-month repairs after completing his mission in the Middle East in 2013, will be involved in military exercises with American allies in Northeast Asia."

Americans are trying to hinder Beijing’s military activity in the South China Sea under the pretext of providing free shipping.

Help Agency: “The nuclear aircraft carrier John C. Stennis (CVN-74), with a tonnage of 103 of thousands of tons, named after Senator John Stennis of Mississippi, was built in December of 1995. It can be stationed around 90 fighters and military helicopters, as well as 3,1 thousands of troops. ”

      In Japan at the port Yokosuka there is another aircraft carrier - Ronald Reagan.

      Let me laugh! laughing

      This, by the way, is one of two Aviks that were under repair. Remember, there was an article that 9 aircraft carriers are currently in operation, since 1 were decommissioned and the new one was not put into operation? So there was a mistake, two were still under repair, a total of 7 aviks were at hand at the command of the US Navy, not 9. That's just one repaired and he went to sea.

        If nothing disturbs the peace of the Celestial Empire, then in the near future the Chinese will "catch" somewhere in South America with a couple of bases and will already observe the freedom of navigation through the Panama Canal with their aircraft carriers.

    And that, along with Reagan's wing, there are about 180 planes and helicopters. Plus an air base in Japan and South Korea. There will be at least 300. Not sickly ... I wonder what China will do

      And here is what. I ask you to love and favor - RCC YJ-62C, launch range - 400 km with a warhead mass of 300 kg, flight speed - 0,9M.

        Under ground complexes with a range of 400 km, the "American" is unlikely to be substituted. But from sea carriers they can get it. Only the target, albeit large, but very difficult. Of the ground complexes, the Dongfeng is interesting. The probability of use at the moment is small, but as a deterrent factor, I think the United States takes it into account.
        The U.S. Department of Defense said China had developed and reached the initial operational readiness stage for a ground-based missile system with DF-21 anti-ship ballistic missiles in conventional equipment. The DF-21D is the first and only anti-ship ballistic missile in the world, and the first weapon system capable of hitting long-range moving aircraft carrier strike groups using ground-based mobile launchers.
        DF-21D maneuvering warheads can be integrated with various types of terminal guidance systems. Such missiles could possibly have been tested in 2005-2006, and the launch of the Jianbin-5 / Yaogan-1 and Jianbin-6 / Yaogan-2 satellites could provide the PRC with the necessary information from satellite radar and optoelectronic equipment for targeting, respectively . Such improvements can significantly increase China’s ability to counter maritime operations, in particular, preventing the entry of US aircraft carriers into the Taiwan Strait.https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%94%D1%83%D0%BD%D1%84%D1%8D%D0%BD-21

        Our KSR-5 is cooler (were there?) - and with a range and speed and warhead it was possible to put a special one. I hope our strategists will be bothered by these troughs

    That is, the Middle East has already been cheated enough. Now you need to dramatize everything in the Asia-Pacific region. P.indos resemble large children - they definitely need to see what's inside the cat. I really hope that the evil they do will come back to them.

    And what to do then? China's anti-ship missiles are of high quality, air defense systems are working properly. The Americans need to think about it. They sent it not for real military operations, but, as always, for an "action of intimidation." They will never contact a nuclear power from behind the islands located thousands of miles off the coast of the United States. Their goal is to climb anywhere under the pretext. And the disputed territories and the DPRK are a pretext. Moreover, soon in Vietnam, our military base will be ...

      Yes, of course, you can organize a Maidan or Tahrir in some Zimbabwe, burn tires, bomb, defending democracy ... The question is how the American democracy can withstand all this and if plastics go to America from somewhere else - will the tires light up in front of the White House?

      And, especially when it comes to Southeast Asia. Is America so quickly forgot 50000 boxes from Vietnam? A place for America, after all, is karmic ...

        Allya I’ll hoot - you should not rejoice - don’t be cool, but economically strong - like our currencies are pouring in - and the dollar as it is ... we don’t know who is who - with such success they will bury us faster.

          The fact of the matter is that America is strong only with the dollar and the possibility of unsupported printing. Indeed, economic growth is not expressed in tractors or the number of pants, as 60 years ago. It is considered in dollars. There, Ukraine tranche was transferred - even their GDP grew ... laughing And how the economy will trample, if you can print as many dollars as you need !!! And that's why our currencies are staggering that they are tied to the dollar. We back it up with our stagger. To detach from the dollar - and stop staggering. I, for example, about 7 years in Soviet times, gradually, without tension, put aside the car and bought. And had no idea how it is - inflation gobbled up savings?

          The closer you stand to the dollar, the stronger the dollar and the weaker your currency.

          By the way, about the economy. Do you know how many American automobile brands are American today? And how many of them are produced in America? And in the know that the last pair of Levyce pants was sewn in America in 1944 (it is written on the offsite)?

          America produces money, GMO food, and services. Then, in order to avoid inflation, money is thrown to the foreign market and the situation described by you turns out - everyone stumbles, except for the dollar.

          Now imagine that we started a global blow to the dollar, and then China finished it off? How long will sailors from "Ronald Reagan" stay in Yokosuka without wages, like our sailors in the early 90s in Sevastopol? Ours still could not stand it, they sold their cars to paint ships. But American sailors will have a govinda smoother - they won’t wander around the world without a salary ...

    America that breastfeed aircraft carrier will stand in the way of the Chinese guard? America only with China to fight to the heap left ...

    I have the feeling that America, like a diesel engine, has gone abruptly. I saw once such a diesel engine - nothing interesting and pleasant ... I have the feeling that a cancer patient before death wants to experience all sinful pleasures. And the consequences do not care - the debriefing will be without it. So frankly either crush for themselves or fight - well, even the guys on the street behave more diplomatically ...

    So it would be nice for us to strengthen the Pacific Fleet with one more cruiser to help the Varyag - pr. 1 or 1164.
    Not to mention submarines and diesel-electric submarines.

    So the "action of intimidation" is in quotation marks ... Of course, no one is afraid, especially China. This is a pretext for presence and that's it. Any goals can be, for example, reconnaissance, conducting sabotage operations, etc.

    The United States reinforced its presence in the Asia-Pacific region with a second aircraft carrier

    Perhaps after that, China and Russia need to peacefully surrender to the mercy of the "winner". American aircraft carriers have been sailing across the seas and oceans for a long time, demonstratively rattling their weapons, so what? The Korean and Vietnamese wars were also not without them. Who got it in the teeth in the end?
