The YJ-12 is the “most lethal anti-ship missile China has manufactured thus far,” according to the Pentagon. It creates a variety of security problems for US naval forces in the Pacific. The YJ-12’s danger stems from its 400-kilometer range, giving it the world’s longest-ranged ACBM, as well as its ability to travel at high speeds. This makes protecting US ship strike groups with Aegis Combat Systems and SM-2 surface-to-air missiles challenging.
It makes wonder why people, especially the generals and of course every day citizens, think so little of China’s ability to strike out. It will be a coordinated attack, not to mention torpedo’s and air and underwater drones at the same time. They have not been at war with anyone these past 20 years, instead they have been arming themselves for this one fight that will occur in the south china sea. China will not only win straight out, but will capture all vessels. Some will sink, but their objective will be to take them over by dismantling the rudder and props. The us fleet will be totally rendered useless by not being able to maneuver. All sailors will have no choice but to surrender or die.
For years a relatively sleepy backwater, the anti-ship cruise missile sector is again active, with a range of developments covering subsonic, supersonic, and hypersonic-speed weapons. Only recently India successfully tested the accuracy of an extended-range BrahMos supersonic cruise missile launched from the stealth destroyer Indian Navy Ship (INS) Chennai. The BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft, or land. The missile was developed as part of a joint venture between Indian Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Russia’s NPO Mashinostroyeniya initiated in 1998.
Western Free Nations have gutted their military leadership for woke bullshit financed by the CCP to undermine our way of life!
