China claims its aerospace fighter is able to reach US in one hour

Chinese President Xi Jinping’s recent call for the PLA to speed up building an integrated space and air force has reportedly drawn international attention. Chinese media claims that foreign media are giving sensationalising reports on that, though which publications are saying this is not mentioned. They say there is no shortage of bold speculation.

Chinese media also claims that some foreign media have reported that China is testing an aerospaceplane codenamed Shenlong that is able to reach the US in one hour. State media claims it deals a heavy blow at the US if what they report is true.

According to a report the US supposedly recently published, China is testing the Shenlong aerospace fighter that is able to reach the US in one hour. The US report supposedly says that the Shenlong is much smaller than the US X-37B fighter and has been researched for much less time, but it can carry small rockets with surprising power.

There is information that the Fujiang Longxi Bearing (Group) Corp. Ltd conscientiously cooperated with the research institute for the fighter in producing the bearings it needed. For that the institute gave the company a board of inscription and a letter of gratitude.

State media also claims that China has successfully carried out a test flight of Shenlong, but it is too small. Now the space designers are trying to develop an enlarged version of the Shenlong aerospaceplane.

Chinese aerospace equipment experts have held quite a few secret meetings for that, and have begun the work on the design of the large aerospaceplane.

Chinese media claims that Russian media has pointed out that a large aerospaceplane is of great practical value; therefore, China has invested a lot of funds and workforce in the research and development for it and has obtained considerable achievements.

Chinese media did not say where these reports came from, other than saying “foreign media” and “Russian media.”

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 The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that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 US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the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.
