From Henri Kenhmann at East Pendulum on 2020.11.23:

Dropped from a balloon for their first free fall flight on
21 SEPTEMBER 2018, the three IMECH prototypes are finally revealed tonight on CCTV-7.

The D18-1S, 2S and 3S allow IMECH engineers to study the new aerodynamic configurations in the hypersonic regime.

Note: IMECH = Institute of Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (also abbreviated as IMCAS) is the first national institution for mechanics research in China. It is a comprehensive and multidisciplinary national mechanics research center organized on the conception of engineering science by Professor Qian Xuesen (Hsue-Shen Tsien).


I think I already saw the pics here at PDF, most likely uploaded by @LKJ86 but cannot locate where they are :p:

Yes, I see it again in other thread, posted as GIF, here:

Covid Is Increasing America’s Lead Over China

As the post-pandemic world order takes shape, it’s clear that the U.S. still has huge advantages.

The broader question of allies is central for understanding the relative balance of power moving forward.

Is this a kind of veiled threat or warning to China... in regard to some possible military conflict or even nuke exchanges (when the US has so many more nuke heads than China's stock)? That the US is capable to absorb some casualties in seeking out domination and victory? :(

we already much superior to US in terms of overall military projection capability in East Asia; not only by missiles but also by ships, aircrafts, or logistics; and when it comes to matters of speed and quantity in East Asia, we easily overwhelm US; seemingly, many prideful americans and US media don't want to admit the fact but it very importantly true; actually it must be because US is NOT in Asia!!

I suggest samsara to leave such propaganda from US media; US often done so against soviet union during cold war; it always does when it really fears; I believe it won't stop such propaganda in the last moment until it finally leaves Asia

Excerp from,

Opinion | China’s military expansion will test the Biden administration - The Washington Post
Davidson confirmed, for the first time from the U.S. government side, that China’s People’s Liberation Army has successfully tested an anti-ship ballistic missile against a moving ship. This was done as part of the PLA’s massive joint military exercises, which have been ongoing since the summer. These are often called “aircraft carrier killer” missiles, because they could threaten the United States’ most significant naval assets from long distances.

There is one other factor that people are loathe to discuss (with one exception). Yes, the U.S. has botched its response to Covid-19. At the same time, its experience shows that America as a nation can in fact tolerate casualties, too many in fact. It had long been standard Chinese doctrine that Americans are “soft” and unwilling to take on much risk. If you were a Chinese war game planner, might you now reconsider that assumption?

From Sardaukar20 /SDF -- with my little adaptations and corrections:

A bankrupt hegemon will do very well when its No. 1 economic adversary is dead and gone. The next economic competitors: Japan, Germany, UK, India, France, etc. are either vassals or friends. Russia poses no economic challenge to the US. Especially not with China is gone. A bankrupt USA will continue to be the No. 1 in a bankrupt world with no China around! Crazy you say? I don't think Steve Bannon, Tom Cotton, or Donald Trump would think so. The US could put 1000 warheads on China, think about those Ohio-class SSBN, and still have plenty to spare for Russia.

I strongly disagree that nukes serve no purpose for China. If China focuses mainly on economic development and ignores the pressing defence matters, this will be the same mistake, or even worse, that the Qing dynasty made right before the Century of Humiliation. "All is fine in China, let the barbarians play with their superior toys." That was until these barbarians started to use these toys on China. With these toys, they could dictate economic terms with China, pushed Opium into China, and took territories from China. In the context of the 21st century, the USA could wipe China off the map for the price of several millions or even many tens of millions of dead Americans and a bankrupt economy. Economies can revive, the dead won't. Now that's an absolute power!!!

Therefore, nukes do matter for China. If China's second or retaliatory nuke strike have the capability to also wipe the CONUS and its allies from the map like what Russia can do, then that deterrent capability would help to eliminate any American wet dream of ever winning a nuke fight with China. Today, we have an increasingly irrational crowd of USA and its allies. So nukes are the best guarantor of peace and continued prosperity for China. If the US and its allies are becoming too insane and would nuke China anyway, then China shall have its ultimate revenge. To deny them an ultimate victory over China. To ensure the MAD -- Mutually-Assured Destructions!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I think China need several thousand of strategic nuke warheads with adequate delivery means that can reach CONUS and its warring allies... a quantity that will survive any sudden & massive First Nuke Strike, thus China is still capable to launch decisive retaliatory nuke attacks that keep the MAD scenario to its real meaning in the worst scenario! Having a decisively credible fleet of SSBN with reach to CONUS and its warring allies will increase the level of confidence and deterrence. Just take the US Ohio-class SSBN for some benchmarking.

Needless to say that the urgency of safeguarding nation's safety from the existential threats by any hostile force is surpassing any other consideration and should have the paramount importance. No amount of wealth and advancement will matter if one's facing dire threats to be annihilated!!!

I really hope that China's strategist planner
never underestimate the level of insanity that the some elements in power in the US may pursue to maintain its domination when that nation is unable to compete normally!!! A declining empire trying to hold fast its dominance by any means is extremely dangerous to the world and moreover to its peer rival!

"Whatever happens, the rules are far simpler than you imagine: Any attempt to replace the dollar as the world's reserve currency will lead to war. We run the world. Our dollar is legal tender -- EVERYWHERE. Anyone else who wants out of that game will be on the other end of our military might. This is high stakes poker. We're the house and we get to decide what cards are dealt in what order and everyone else has to play along or else."

China’s military expansion will test the Biden administration

Opinion by Josh Rogin | Columnist | The Washington Post
Dec. 3, 2020 at 5:50 p.m. EST

The tectonic plates of the military balance in Asia are shifting underneath our feet. It’s happening slowly and inexorably, but over time the magnitude of the change is becoming vividly apparent. As the United States prepares to change its leadership, China’s military advancement and expansion are now a problem too glaring to ignore.

Adm. Philip Davidson, Commander of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command

Adm. Philip Davidson, who is nearing the end of his tour as the head of U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, has been warning about the changing military balance in Asia throughout his tenure. But his warnings have often fallen on deaf ears in a Washington mired in partisanship and dysfunction. The Trump administration talked a big game about meeting the challenge of China’s military encroachment, but Davidson’s calls for substantially more investment to restore the regional balance that has deterred Beijing for decades have gone largely unanswered.

China’s military has moved well past a strategy of simply defending its territory and is now modernizing with the objective of being able to operate and even fight far from its shores, Davidson told me in an interview conducted last month for the 2020 Halifax International Security Forum. Under President Xi Jinping, Davidson said, China has built advanced weapons systems, platforms and rocket forces that have altered the strategic environment in ways the United States has not sufficiently responded to.


“We are seeing great advances in their modernization efforts,” he said. “China will test more missiles, conventional and nuclear associated missiles this year than every other nation added together on the planet. So that gives you an idea of the scale of how these things are changing.”

Davidson confirmed, for the first time from the U.S. government side, that China’s People’s Liberation Army has successfully tested an anti-ship ballistic missile against a moving ship. This was done as part of the PLA’s massive joint military exercises, which have been ongoing since the summer. These are often called “aircraft carrier killer” missiles, because they could threaten the United States’ most significant naval assets from long distances.

“It’s an indication that they continue to advance their capability. We’ve known for years they’ve been in pursuit of a capability that could attack moving targets,” Davidson said. I asked him whether they are designed to target U.S. aircraft carriers. “Trust me, they are targeting everything,” he replied.

Chinese missile and rocket forces now represent “a great asymmetry” in the region, Davidson said, that presents a threat along the first island chain, which stretches from the Koreas down through Japan to Southeast Asia and Taiwan. He has advocated integrated air and missile defense in the region and on Guam, which is strategic but vulnerable.

Davidson’s watch has almost ended. The Wall Street Journal reported this week that President Trump plans to nominate Pacific Fleet commander Adm. John Aquilino to succeed him. But before that change will likely take place, a new president will take office in Washington, one who is promising to review the U.S. strategic approach to Asia early on. What Joe Biden’s officials will find is that the PLA of 2021 is quite different from the PLA they last dealt with in 2016.

“Recent advances in equipment, organization, and logistics have significantly improved the PLA’s ability to project power and deploy expeditionary forces far from China’s shores,” the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission wrote in its latest annual report, released this week. “A concurrent evolution in military strategy requires the force to become capable of operating anywhere around the globe and of contesting the U.S. military if called upon to do so.”
