These are only littoral defense strategy of China.|
It's a peaceful rise KONGFU of China!
The trio of weapons are vital to keep the American Fleet away, so the resupply in case of war!
The THOR'S HAMMER - this is like a LIGHTING BOLT - the flaming hammer of the Scandanavian Thunder God, THOR!
The beauty of this weapon is it's TERMINAL FLIGHT ADJUSTMENT capability!
Once launched, the enemy fleets won't have an idea of the direction of the missile, till the terminal adjustments - and it's only seconds to target once they realized! The DF-21 has a range of 1,000km - sufficient batteries needs to be built to outnumber the USN battle group ABM, ASAT capability! The TERMINAL FLIGHT ADJUSTMENT capabiity means the warhead can avoid the ABM, ASAT countermeasure of the American Cruiser fleet defending the battle group.
In a condition of firing a "needle" to smash another "needle" in hypersonic flight - it's rather technically difficult proposition!
The DRAGON KING'S SWORD is another of such weapons. Nowadays with cruise missiles being fitted with ramjets, this is somewhat similar or more powerful than afterburners - it give the rocket a speed of mach 6 to 7. When launched at big distances, such weapons can be twarted by a range of countermeasures!
The DRAGON KING'S SWORD allow the navy to creep close to the battle group - within 50km vicinity before it launches the deadly HYPERSONIC MISSILE. and slowly glide away in a silent dive! This weapon give the PLAN a capability to defend China far away from the littoral waters - and it's the 1st line of defense against an expeditionary forces!
The latest is the WONDER WOMEN'S INVISIBLE JET. This is similar to the American Comic strip about the vehicle of Wonder Women. The PLAAF J-20H can fly invisible to radar, laser, infra red survellance, and creep about 100km from the attacking fleet - and launches the hypersonic missiles - only 20 seconds to react.
WONDER WOMEN'S INVISIBLE JET has problem with range, it can only operate within 1,000km range. Mid air Re fueling is dangerous in war time - as the re fueler jet is an easy target for the interceptor crafts of an expeditionary fleet!
The Chain of Pearl forward bases is the final defensive design of the PLA. This are basically low level operational bases oversea near the SEA LANES used by the merchant navy of China, Asian Trade Route States and friendly Stress Crescent state. In time of emergency, the PLAAF and the PLA can airlift JET SQUADRON to the friendly bases to help protect the sea lanes vital for China and friendly states needing open sea lanes for their economic prosperity!
All this are basically defensive weapon system!
