[Current affairs and military]The Chinese Communist Party’s dual aircraft carrier battle group strikes to see the US and Japan’s response | J-20 | Liaoning aircraft carrier | Carrier-based aircraft J-15

【Epoch Times December 25, 2021】In today’s society, the role of weapons and the army is given a deeper meaning than killing. Strong military power is often used as a deterrent to maintain world peace and human security. Although the war became hidden, it never stopped. 【Current Affairs and Military】Take you to the forefront to see the details and truth of the battle between good and evil.

We just talked about the mass production of J-20 last time, and now the place where J-20 is used is here. The Liaoning aircraft carrier J-15 is obviously at a disadvantage in the confrontation between the Miyako Strait and the Japanese F-35. Can the J-20 support it? Let’s start with the Liaoning military exercise.

The Chinese Navy deployed the aircraft carrier Shandong to lead an aircraft carrier formation of six ships to conduct so-called combat-oriented military exercises in the Western Pacific.

The Joint Staff of the Japanese Self-Defense Forces stated in a press release on December 21 that on December 20, the aircraft carrier Liaoning, the 055 large destroyer Nanchang, the 052D destroyer Luyang III, two 054A frigates and a 901 supply ship The formed aircraft carrier formation sailed southeast of Okinawa, about 196 miles from Okinawa Island. On the 19th and 20th, the aircraft carrier conducted full-day flight operations with J-15 fighter jets, Z-9 and Z-18 helicopters for two consecutive days.

Earlier news from the Japan Maritime Safety Administration (JSO) showed that on December 15, the aircraft carrier formation was found driving southeast in the area west of the Danzhou Islands in eastern China. On December 16, it crossed the Miyako Strait and sailed south into the Pacific Ocean.

The Japan Maritime Safety Administration said that the light aircraft carrier Izumo (DDH-183) and the destroyer Akizuki (DD-115) of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force, as well as the P-1 anti-submarine aircraft of the First Air Force of the Honshu Atsugi Naval Aviation Facility and the No. The P-3 Orion Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) of the Five Air Forces monitored the passage of the CCP fleet on the 15th and 16th. While the Izumo is monitoring the CCP’s aircraft carrier formation, the fighter jets of the Japan Air Self-Defense Force are also on alert.

On December 1, former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe bluntly stated that “If something goes wrong in Taiwan, something is wrong in Japan, and something is wrong in the Japan-US alliance.” In this regard, Chinese Assistant Foreign Minister Hua Chunying said that Shinzo Abe was grossly interfering in China’s internal affairs and provoking China’s sovereignty. China firmly opposes it and so on.

In less than three weeks, the Chinese Communist Party’s aircraft carrier formation crossed the Miyako Strait, posing a military threat to Japan and Taiwan at the same time in the waters southeast of Okinawa. It is steadfastly proved that Shinzo Abe’s words are true.

The CCP’s official media “Global Times” mentioned that the presence of the CCP’s naval aircraft carrier on the front line is a capability that can be used to deter and defeat the US and Japanese forces that support Taiwan. The newspaper quoted the opinion of military experts that if foreign forces such as the United States and Japan interfere with the situation in the Taiwan Strait, the Western Pacific will be a potentially important battlefield, because the CCP’s aircraft carrier can occupy a favorable position here and resist foreign forces, while also being able to move from the east. Surrounding Taiwan Island.

In fact, in peacetime, the CCP navy can wander in the waters of Taiwan and eastern Japan at any time, because it is an open sea. As long as the CCP naval fleet can support them with fuel to go so far, it can travel like ships of all countries. Freedom of navigation. Although the CCP has been trying its best to contain the international community’s right to free navigation in the international waters of the East China Sea and the South China Sea, and confronting the efforts of the United States and its allies to safeguard this right, the CCP itself is free to enjoy the fruits of the international community’s efforts. . The Chinese naval vessels have passed through the Miyako Strait many times without reporting to Japan.

However, in a state of war, it is difficult to say whether the CCP’s fleet can achieve the combat intent believed by the CCP’s military experts. Because at that time the Miyako Strait was not so gentle for the Chinese naval fleet. The widest area of ​​the Miyako Strait is only 200 kilometers. Taiwan and Japan have a large number of various types of anti-ship missiles that can completely cover the entire Miyako Strait.

The CCP has replicated the configuration of the US aircraft carrier battle group and launched targeted high-density training. The posture of the Chinese Communist Party’s aircraft carrier seems to indicate that it can project power from this area and carry out air strikes on Japan or Taiwan. And like the U.S. Navy, destroyers and frigates escort the aircraft carrier when it attacks.

The light aircraft carrier Izumo of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force has been monitoring the actions of the CCP aircraft carrier formation. The Chinese Communist Party’s aircraft carrier Liaoning is equipped with 24 J-15 fighters and 26 helicopters. Its main combat capabilities are concentrated on 24 J-15 fighters. Japan’s Izumo is conservatively estimated to be able to carry 20 F-35B stealth fighters. It can reduce the number of anti-submarine helicopters and make room for F-35Bs when fighting ships or air.

The F-35 fighter jets of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force will be the key to combating air strikes. In the air battle between Japanese F-35 fighter jets and CCP J-15 fighter jets, the J-15 hardly had any chance. After observing the Liaoning exercise, the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force stated that 12 to 16 F-35Bs are more than enough to deal with the CCP’s 24 J-15 carrier-based aircraft, because air supremacy has always been on the Japanese side.

According to the Global Times, the J-15 has now been substantially upgraded, equipped with new radars and weapon racks. However, there is a one-way transparent relationship between the invisible J-15 and the invisible F-35, and the J-15 has no time to see the F-35 even before it is destroyed.

In fact, there is no need for the CCP to talk about the obviously weak J-15 and F-35. Does the CCP have a fifth-generation fighter jet J-20? The Miyako Strait is only a few hundred miles away from mainland China. J-20 taking off from the coastal airport has enough time to participate in air combat after arriving in this area. But the question is whether the J-20, which has never been outside the country, can actually come out, or it is still a suspense. CCP experts often ask, how did you know that J-20 did not come out? It means that J-20 is out and you can’t see it either. This inexplicable effect may be the last resort of the CCP to maintain the J-20’s face. The U.S. deploys F-22 and F-35, and many times it informs the world. J-20 also flies around like F-22 and F-35, let people know that you dare to go everywhere, but they can’t see you, wouldn’t it be more illustrative?

While the CCP’s Liaoning exercises, the U.S. Navy Carl. The Vinson aircraft carrier strike group continued to be deployed in the Western Pacific. From December 10 to 19 in the Indian Ocean close to Australia, the aircraft carrier strike group completed bilateral training exercises with the Royal Australian Air Force and Navy. During the period, the two navies conducted joint exercises in various scenarios such as electronic warfare, surface warfare, and air warfare.

Dan, the commander of the first aircraft carrier battle group. Major General Dan Martin said, “Conducting advanced kinetic and non-kinetic exercises with our allies allows us to surpass any opponent on the high seas that poses a threat to us.” “Our long-term alliance relationship in the Indo-Pacific region has maintained. Maritime prosperity and international order have enabled the entire region to achieve seamless integration, communication and collaboration.”

Carl taking part in the exercise. The Vinson aircraft carrier battle group includes Carl. The USS Vincent (CVN-70) and its Air Force Wing (CVW), the Champlain Lake cruiser (CG-57), the Stokedale destroyer (DDG-106), and the Rappahannock (T-AO-204) and John. Alice (T-AO-194) supply ship.

Some Chinese media inferred that the Liaoning aircraft carrier formation might go south to conduct exercises and training in the South China Sea. Recently, the Chinese Communist Navy’s Shandong aircraft carrier also entered the South China Sea to conduct winter combat training. Therefore, the two aircraft carriers may converge in the South China Sea in the next few days.

The confluence of the two Chinese aircraft carriers on the high seas seems to be an event that some military fans have been looking forward to, but it has not happened yet. Now, the excitement may be bigger than military fans expected. According to this logic and development trend, if these Chinese fleets are all heading to the South China Sea, then not only will the two Chinese naval aircraft carrier formations converge soon, but they may also join the US Navy’s Carl. The Vinson aircraft carrier battle group met.

The question now is whether the CCP will give the U.S. Navy a chance to observe the core part of the CCP’s entire naval power at the closest distance, so that the U.S. Navy can make more adequate preparations for defeating the CCP. It is estimated that the actual situation may disappoint military fans.
