A report released by the United States Study Center says that China’s PLA military missile remains a threat to the United States.
The Chinese Army (PLA) has such missiles that it can threaten America in its own home. This has been revealed in a report. China has these capabilities through conventional missiles contained within the People’s Liberation Army Rocket Force (PLARF) arsenal to displace US military bases around Asia in places such as Guam, Japan, Singapore and South Korea.
Removing Taiwan (either forcibly or in some other way) remains the main strategic imperative for China, but the PLA also wants to prevent any US military involvement in such a process.
It was mentioned in a study report
Published in this month by the Center for the Study of the United States at the University of Sydney, a 102-page report titled Everthing Crisis titled “American Strategy, Military Spending, and Collective Defense in the Indo-Pacific” warned that China in traditional armed ballistics Is a major investment in. And cruise missiles are the focal point of China’s ‘counter intervention’ efforts.
China changes missiles in last 15 years
The report also states that over the past 15 years, PLA has systematically expanded, upgraded and expanded its inventory range of missiles and launchers, which the US government called the most active and diversified ballistic missile development program in the world. .
The extent of this missile manufacturing is such that the USA now has to choose whether to enter into a conflict that is “too expensive and dangerous”. Alternatively, if the US sits on the sidelines, it may propose Beijing to win a victory.
The Pentagon estimates that PLARF currently has developed up to 1,500 short-range ballistic missiles (SRBMs), 450 medium-range ballistic missiles (MRBMs) and 160 intermediate-range ballistic missiles (IRBMs). In addition, it also has long-range ground-launched cruise missiles. The DF-11, DF-15 and DF-16 SRBM have sufficient range to cover all regions of Taiwan and South Korea. In addition, with the mobile truck launcher deployed on the Chinese mainland, the DF-21 MRBM can reach all parts of Japan, except the North and more than half of the Philippines.
Long-range missile threatens America
In other words, the PLARF can threaten every single US base in Asia and the Western Pacific with these aforementioned conventional missiles, without resorting to inter-continental ballistic missiles. The United States Study Center document warns that this growing arsenal of accurate long-range missiles poses a major threat to nearly all US, allied and partner bases, runways, ports, and military installations in the Western Pacific.
