Four new weapons that China says frighten the US and Japan

HongQi 9 Surface-to-Air Missile System

HongQi 9 Surface-to-Air Missile System

Chinese media says that looking back at the year 2012, China put a sudden end to its prolonged old practice of hiding its lustre, maintaining a dull image and keeping a low profile with regard to it military strength. China began to make frequent displays of its strength through busy patrol of its territorial waters, frequent military drills and revelation of its sophisticated weapons.

Obviously, China now tries to make the US and Japan understand increasingly well that China has become rich and strong now, that it is no longer a weak country as it was during the Qing Dynasty and that there will not be an easy end if anyone fights a war with it.

China’s intensive displays of its military force aim at giving a clear signal that China’s sophisticated weapons are not inferior to the United States. According to a US Defence Department official’s comment, there have often been surprising innovations in China’s development of the military equipment with the most advanced technology.

There are the following four weapons that frighten the US and Japan, especially China’s leading position in the development of quantum dot laser:

1.     China has successfully launched its HongQi 9 anti-aircraft missiles. It is said that that missile system is derived from S-300 and S-4005 anti-aircraft systems, but has incorporated the technology of the most advanced Patriot system of the US. It surpasses S-300, S-4005 and Patriot systems and has caught up with the newest generation of technology used in S-400 and Hawk missiles. It is able to fire two kinds of missiles: 1. the anti-aircraft missile with the world’s longest range of 350 km; and 2. the low-altitude missile able to destroy super-low target 5 meters high. It can thus provide low-, medium- and high-altitude defence at close, medium and long range. During a drill, it not only downed cruise missiles and stealth aircraft 100 km away but destroyed a guided missile at super high speed.

2.     The DF-41 ICBM that can carry 10 nuclear warheads with a heavier load and longer range than DF-31.

3.     Julang-2 missile for its nuclear submarine with a range of several thousand km and can be launched in water.

4.     China is now world leader in the theoretical research in quantum dot laser. If China has succeeded in developing the laser weapon, it can use the laser to destroy an attack missile 30,000 km away.

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
