Chinese ASBM Development: Knowns and Unknowns

Office of the Secretary of Defense, Military Power of the People’s Republic of China 2009, Annual Report to Congress, p. 21.

China wants to achieve the ability, or at minimum the appearance of the ability, to prevent a U.S. carrier strike group (CSG) from intervening in the event of a future Taiwan Strait crisis. China may be closer than ever to achieving this capability with land-based anti-ship homing ballistic missiles. There have been many Western reports that China is developing an anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM). Increasingly, technical and operationally-focused discussions are found in a widening array of Chinese sources, some authoritative. These factors suggest that China may be close to fielding, testing, or employing an ASBM—a weapon that no other country possesses. According to U.S. Government sources, Beijing is pursuing an ASBM based on its CSS-5/DF-21D solid propellant medium-range ballistic missile. The CSS-5’s 1,500 km+ range could hold ships at risk in a large maritime area—far beyond the Taiwan theatre into the Western Pacific [1]. Yet there remain considerable unknowns about China's ASBM capability, which could profoundly affect U.S. deterrence, military operations and the balance of power in the Western Pacific.

Taiwan as the Catalyst

For the past several decades, the U.S. Navy has used aircraft carriers to project power around the world, including in and around the Taiwan Strait. The deployment of the USS Nimitz and Independence carrier battle groups in response to China’s 1995-1996 missile tests and military exercises in the Taiwan Strait was a move that the People's Liberation Army (PLA) could not counter. The impetus behind Chinese efforts to develop ASBMs may be to prevent similar U.S. carrier operations in the future.

The sixth meeting of the 11th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference's (CPPCC) Standing Committee, the highest-level advisory body of the People's Republic of China, met ahead of the general plenary that is taking place in Beijing from June 22 to 27. During one of the committee's working group meetings on June 18, the former deputy chief of the General Staff of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and standing committee member of the CPPCC, General Zhang Li, recommended that China build an airport and seaport on Mischief Reef located in the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. The additional facilities, Zhang said, would enable China to conduct aircraft patrol of the area, support Chinese fishing vessels and demonstrate the country's sovereignty over the disputed islands (Ming Pao [Hong Kong], June 22). The call for building military installments on the disputed islets by General Zhang, a senior high-ranking military officer, may be signs of China's increased willingness to use force in resolving territorial disputes as tension between China and ASEAN-member states (i.e. Philippines, Vietnam) boil over the contested islets in the region.

Chinese sub Threat

Sources: Navy was tracking Chinese sub

By Andrew Scutro - Staff writer
Posted : Sunday Jun 21, 2009 8:11:19 EDT

Two defense officials have confirmed that the crew aboard the destroyer John S. McCain was tracking the submarine that struck its towed sonar array June 10 in the South China Sea off the Philippines.

The officials, who are familiar with the incident but were not authorized to speak on the subject, confirmed the array, which trailed up to a mile behind the ship, was hit by a Chinese navy submarine, although it was not sighted on the surface. Days after the incident, Chinese officials acknowledged that the submarine was theirs.

The McCain crew was able to retrieve the sonar array, which was damaged, although it’s not clear whether it was retrieved intact, the defense officials said. A mishap investigation is ongoing.

The destroyer, based in Yokosuka, Japan, pulled into port in Sasebo after the incident but soon went back to sea.

The officials would not specify whether the submarine was an attack boat or a ballistic-missile sub, and they were unsure of the time of the incident, which occurred in “international waters” south of Subic Bay.

The Associated Press reported that the collision took place 144 miles from Subic Bay, potentially placing it in the Mindoro Strait.

The collision has been described as “inadvertent” by defense officials.

Beyond that, little has been revealed about the circumstances.

The Navy by practice does not discuss operations that could reveal force capabilities, but observers have been looking for answers in this case because of the proximity of the submarine to a U.S. warship. Towed sonar arrays are dragged on a cable about a mile long, with the sensors placed toward the end of the line to avoid absorbing sound from the host ship.

A matter of days, a large number of media, military enthusiasts and people are casting their eyes on the Changxing Island. If the rumor about whether China's aircraft carrier plans to start quietly in the island? Wen Wei Po's Jiangnan Shipyard on the 7th to check it out and found that the security of the region recently plant closely than before, almost "a three-step Kong" and a number of security personnel patrol open area in the factory inspections.

Wen Wei Po reported that the "want to go to military bases is also a person to gather intelligence," that want to hear the reporter speak Route Jiangnan Shipyard dock, the family gathered at the Ferry Terminal Changxing Ma taxi driver, his face almost immediately exposed sub-strange smile, but also with each other using a dialect joke started.

Islanders known "military bases"

Islanders told reporters that since May, there have been several domestic and foreign media to a dock on the 3rd. Each of the residents are well aware that in the Changxing Shipbuilding Base  from west to east with the three "shipbuilding production line" in a most mysterious "dock Route", is located in the gantry at the end of bright red. Jiangnan Shipyard, where it is mainly used for the construction of the local military ships.

Armed police guard all entrances

Islanders also said that security on the 3rd dock has always been closely than the other two docks, in March this year, even the three shipbuilding production line of a cement between the main road has been sealed, it is the original staff will rest回宿舍by the road, but now they can only take a detour. Jiangnan Shipyard, said a staff member, it is better to dock with the outside world on the 3rd to separate. Originally from that road can quickly reach the next Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group, and now all of the entrances and exits are armed police guard.

A driver on the island are memories of the past, the Jiangnan Shipyard staff take a taxi from the terminal directly to the living quarters downstairs area. However, from May 1 this year, starting in front of everyone in the plant must get off, walk into the. Foreign vehicles will not be allowed to enter.

The number of Chinese and foreign media were refused entry

Two armed police guards armed to  the door, there are a number of security checks and out of pedestrians in the vehicle passes. Bypass reporter into the living area around the factory several times, saw them well on both rows of blue and white-phase giant plant. Plants with high and low, up to a dozen high floors, low and only two three-story - this is the mysterious eyes of foreign media on the 3rd dock.

A closed two plants, the other side is open-style, on both sides of the wall there are open-shaped ventilation window blinds to keep the air flow and block the line of sight to outsiders. 3 dock in the roof in a unique, high-altitude satellites also can be avoided by the theft of secrets or other equipment. Although the weekend, the factory is still roaring machines, loaded with steel works  vehicles coming and going, very busy.

Three large dock, this reporter went from one factory to another first quarter of an hour spent nearly three hours. Plant every two to three hundred meters in the region has a guard on the kiosks, there are a considerable number of security personnel to open  patrol the area with walkie-talkie in the factory inspections, to see people not dressed in uniform, it will immediately approached some cross-examination.

Vietnam gearing for war with China?

A Chinese vessel off the coast of the Spratly Islands

With attention focused on North Korea's brinkmanship on nuclear weapons and missiles, another potential crisis is brewing that is about ready to spill over into violence, with Viet Nam apparently preparing to challenge China's ownership of a string of islands thought to be the link to billions of dollars worth of oil.

In asserting its rights to the Spratly Islands also claimed by China, Vietnam has ordered six Project 636 Kilo-class submarines from Russia and has gotten permission for the purchase, in addition to other military arms Vietnam has ordered.

Russia sees the sales as strategically beneficial and Chinese critics suggest Russia is trying to gain "strategic benefit by stepping up arms sales to Southeast Asian countries. Its arms sales to Vietnam possibly have special significance for Russia, because returning to Cam Ranh Bay has been a goal long cherished by Russia."
