China Already Has A Plan To Sink The US Fleet In Any Upcoming Battles

As the U.S. makes clear it will defend Japan should China try and lay claim to the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea, this Chinese announcement from mid-2012 offers additional perspective.

Once the U.S. announced it’s turning attention from the Middle East and directing military assets to the Pacific, it didn’t take long for China to make clear how it would handle what it saw as a new regional threat.

China Already Has A Plan To Sink The US Fleet In Any Upcoming Battles

The Economic Times reported China promptly increased its conventional missile capability to carry out multiple launches, from multiple sites —a tactic that could overwhelm a Navy ship’s defenses and cripple its abilities.

Tan Weihong, Commander of China’s Second Artillery Force said, Conventional missiles are a trump card in modern warfare. So we must be ready at any time. We must be able to deliver a quick response to attacks, hit the targets with high accuracy, and destroy them totally. Of the 114 missiles [our brigade]  has launched so far, all have accurately hit the target.

For each incoming missile a U.S. Navy ship will have to perform some variation of the following actions:

First it will launch a long-range air defense missile, like a SM-2ER. If that fails, then a shorter range missile like the ESSM (Evolved Sea Sparrow Missile) will go out — then the ship’s main deck guns will fire anti-air rounds with fused airburst shells.

Surviving missiles will be engaged by close-in weapons systems like the Mk-15 Phalanx or the RAM (Rolling Airframe Missile). Any incoming missiles struck by these systems will be so close, and moving so fast, that incoming shrapnel and debris would likely be unavoidable.

While all these “Hard Kill” options are going on, the ship’s electronic warfare systems will have been trying to jam the incoming missile, offering the missile a false target, while firing off chaff (for radar guided weapons) and flares (for infrared guided weapons).

All that for every single missile, so if China can send off several at once directed at the same ship, the chances of success on their part may increase exponentially.

China would launch its ordnance both from shore and its new Aegis type 052 Luhu-class destroyers.  This battle plan is especially relevant given the developments in the area over the past few days, which I’ll address in a following post.

    It is time and actually long past time for the US to butt out of areas of the world where other up and coming super powers are in the ascendance. When the US believes it has the right as an exceptional nation to rule the seas and the landmasses no matter where situated in the world, it causes wars. No longer is the US the only super power and it simply has to revise its foreign policy to acknowledge that fact or it will pay severe consequences militarily and otherwise. financially the US is bankrupt and its military competitor, China holds the US hostage in that respect. If the American Government doesn’t understand that then it will have to learn the hard way.

      Partially agree, but it’s far more complicated than that. The US is upholding it’s treaties with Japan and the Philippines, only because China is butting into their business (of course that varies depending on your perspective). Also, in regards to who holds who hostage – it’s also a matter of perspective. One can reason that the US holds China hostage because the US owes China, and so China’s options are limited if it wants to see a return on it’s money.

    You know China nuclear politics: “yeh we made a lot while you spend 10 years tiring to stop Iran from getting one while he was not making it at all. And we do not tell you how much, you can count them later… while falling”

    and what you Chinese so sure you can sink our fleet and you getting away unscathed. you Chinese Generals live in a lost world of confusion, the ,moment you fire on any of our ships, you all will be toast along with your cities. dont try it, the U.S. is 100 years ahead of any nation on earth, your cities will be obliterated along with your vessels.

      Do you know how many nukes China has? No, you do not, because they do not give a fuck about numbers and make more. Go bulling Iran more in the meantime China will make some and will not bother to tell how much.

    Well, at least they are not deploying the bulk of their warships to the American coast. Don’t forget that this ‘threat’ is from a defense perspective for them.

      You understand how terrible Japan was during WW2 right and these islands, yes they were some claims before WW2, but mainly are in dispute cause off WW2. You know that Japan is also doing this with South Korea and I think even Russia right?
