Your first lines went something like this. If america doesn't have this technology neither could you. Correct me if im wrong but america doesn' need
this technology because no one else is making a ABM system or needs to use it to kill a carrier
Your example is for a target going around mach 1 and a very low stealthy target while mine is a 100,000ton carrier going at 30knots. Difference in
that?. This TVM (track via missile) has already been fielding and service in the pariot system and the russians have put it in their S-300. This is
not new technology its tested and proven technology.
You might have read my previous post and thought i was a lunatic but i have researched this technology and how it can be implemented and they all are
proven systems and most of them are at least 2 decades old already so this is not new or cutting edge but putting pieces together
One of the things I find rather amusing is how everyone ignores the fact that Taiwan is part of the battle as well.
Theres numerous chinese white papers which have finished off the chinese defences in 7
days. The reason for this is to stop american
intervention because by the time american forces arrive in number taiwans forces should have been destroyed or surrendered according to chinese white
papers. If you dont believe me just go look around some american defense websites which you can download them freely.
All the chinese wargames are aimed at making chinas military more efficent and to practice a invasion of taiwan. Peace mission 2005 was aimed at that.
in 1999 there was a 500,000 man wargames aimed at that. the 700 missiles aimed at taiwan is for that. the airforce moderization is aimed at that.
chinas submarine moderization is aimed at that.
Here is what i think the PLA might do. A surpirse missile and airstrike involing chinas ballistic missiles and some cruise missiles plus the ground
attack and air superioty aircraft to knock out taiwans airforce and radar stations with anti-radation missiles. This in the hope of crippling taiwans
air defence and gaining air superioty. remember taiwan only has 120 Arraams and 100 or something PAC-2/3s. This is not airdefence this is a joke.
All this time china has been buying up LGB and ATG missiles to attack taiwans fighter bunkers and if you look at chinas air doctrime its eerily
similar to americas. China airforce use to practice soviet style air defence with ait intridiction now its more similar to americas air superioty
doctrime. This to me signals a different PLAAF one where it is not just to deny the other force the air but control the air.
Depends on the RV. Exoatmospheric RVs are very hard to intercept because they're SO FAST. That's why we go for the kinetic kill.
Well the Topol M has been designed to manuver in the astomphere at those speeds using re-entry boosters. Its pretty safe to assume that this is not
new technology since its not extremely difficult to add manuvering capaibilty to a warhead. And yes china does have that technology to manuver with
AEGIS is fully computerized, will detect sub missiles, and will fire accordingly.
But what you cannot see you cannot hit. American forces still have trouble hitting the Moskit missile and that is why the evoled sea sparrow is being
developed or is alrady developed. Making a missile which is much smaller than any LO aircraft would be alot easier because it does not need complex
shaping for the cockpit or the air intakes it needs its front section shaped and maybe its bottom section. FOr low down missiles you need look down
radars and if one is not in the area a normal radar would be very difficult to track a sea-skimmer
I have no doubt that if a missile was detected the AEGIS system would destroy it but thats only if it was detected. AEGIS was develop for the cold war
where the Soviets would lanuch massive amounts of super fast and super long range missiles but they were easy to spot because they were flying high
and they were massive. China deploys lots of cruise missiles and has now recently got the Club-S which is 220-300km range missile and almost flys on
the top of the water. Its terminal speed is mach something and the US would have a hard time hitting it
And you also completely are ignoring the fact that we have more subs, and would use them.
No one is talking about a protected war. If i was i would be talking about nukes. The US does have more subs than china but in a task force you only
have 2 submarines
"Chinese aircraft would in no way be venuble because they will detect a superhornet hundreds of kilometres away if this system is comparable to the
A50I which is 80s technology which it is no using hence the different confiruratioin. "
Super Bugs use LO technology
And how much improved is the superhornet vs a F-16?. It wouldn't be a F-22 class or in my opinoin a F-16 class RCS. Yeah you slap some RAM paint here
or there but it is not a stealth platform and cannot hope to go undetected at 100km
A system like this would take at least 10-15 years to properly test and mass produce...and it would have to probably take huge precedence over
10-15 years?. China already has the platform and already has the warhead. the sensors can be adapted from another system.
This is not only for a CSF this is also being developed to hit air bases which a system is already deployed. Its the D-15/A missile which has a CEP of
35-50 meters and has already been developed. Its just a procedure of fitting new sensors in or changing the warhead
