China, the United States and Russia are the three countries currently
in the arms race. Due to internal problems and geographical conflicts over
maritime boundaries, the country’s military has been in the process of
China has invested. But under President Xi Jinping, their military power gaps with rival countries have been narrowing, and the country is fast becoming one of the world's most powerful nations.
“China’s double-digit economic growth has slowed recently,
modernize its military,” he said.
This is according to a recent report by the Defense Intelligence Agency.
'' The use of various technologies has given the country's military some of the most advanced weapons in the world Owning stock. In many cases, the country has already reached the top position in the world.
China Sea? Sino-US trade war, who will win? Here’s a look at some of
China’s most advanced weapons, which are set to play a major role in the current arms race.
Some photos posted on social media in 2016 suggest that China may be suitable
for deployment on such warships Has developed a weapon that can fire at
five times the speed of sound (hypersonic speed). Many countries in the
world have been trying to make such weapons for a long time. The weapon, called
the Railgun, can fire at speeds of up to two and a half kilometers per second,
capable of hitting targets up to two hundred kilometers away. According to a
be the first country to add weapons to their warships.
The photo, published on social media - which the BBC itself could not verify - shows the weapon being tested at sea. According to China's state-run newspaper Global Times, the weapon will be the first to be installed in China's first 10,000-ton Class Missile Destroyer 055. Military analyst and former PLA member Song Jongping told the South China Morning Post:
On the contrary, looking at that picture, it can be said that China is only the United States in the case of shipwrecked railroads
Not only has it caught on, but in the next five to ten years it may even surpass it. Because of this, It takes a long time for the United States to get the budget approved, when the Chinese political system easily allocates extra money for such projects.
According to the South China Morning Post, China announced in August 2016 that it had been able to test a hypersonic aircraft capable of penetrating any missile defense system in the world.
It is a 'Wave Rider' aircraft that can float at high speed in the atmosphere using the push of its own sound. In the test, the Chinese Wave Rider named Jingkong-2 (Sky Panic-2) flew at an altitude of 320 km and floated at a speed of 6.344 km per hour. However, this aircraft is not the first hypersonic aircraft in China - the country has been testing the aircraft floating in the atmosphere since 2014 - but this is the first time they have built an aircraft that uses wave rider technology.
Russia and the United States are working to develop hypersonic weapons.
According to the South China Morning Post, when fully prepared, these wave riders will be able to penetrate any missile defense system in the world with bombs.
But Yoo Chenming, a military analyst in Beijing, told the newspaper that Chinese wave riders would probably be used to carry conventional bombs instead of nuclear weapons. "In my opinion, it will take another three to five years for this technology to become capable of carrying bombs," he said. In 2016, China announced the development of a hypersonic missile - the DF-16, capable of hitting targets at a range of 1,600 to 2,000 kilometers.
Last month, China unveiled a new type of giant bomb, dubbed the "mother of all bombs." The massive ordinance in the United States is like the air blast that is being described. The campaign video shows Nocino, China's leading arms manufacturer, dropping bombs from H-CK bombers and causing large-scale explosions. The details were not disclosed.
The state-run Xinhua news agency said the bomb was the most powerful bomb outside China's nuclear arsenal and was so large that an H-8K bomber could carry only one bomb at a time. Wei Dongzhou, a military analyst in Beijing, told the Global Times that, in comparison, the Chinese bomb was slightly smaller than the American one. He thinks the Chinese bomb is about five or six meters long - while the American bomb is about 10 meters long and light, making it easy to carry.
In 2016, the United States dropped such a bomb on Islamic State caves in Afghanistan. Russia also has such bombs - the so-called "father of all bombs". It is larger in size than the American bomb and, when dropped, creates a fire pit instead of a shock wave. .
