Foreign media said that the US Air Force has deployed three B-2 stealth bombers to digogassia island in the Indian Ocean, which is the first time that the US military has deployed B-2 bombers on the island since 2016. According to the US Air Force’s “888-2a” bomber, which flew over the north of Missouri island on August 14, 2008, the US Air Force’s “888-2a” bombers flew over the North Missouri reef, according to the US Air Force’s report “888-2a” flying over the North Missouri reef on August 14, 2008. According to information provided by the U.S. military, the aircraft refuelled in the air several times.
according to the report, observers said that the three bombers flying with “death 11, 12, 13” did not pass through sensitive areas such as the Western Pacific, the South China Sea or the Taiwan Strait, but they appeared on the island of digogassia, which was a manifestation of the United States’ military strength in the Indian Pacific region.
Zhao Tong, senior research fellow of nuclear policy program of Carnegie International Peace Research Institute, said: “the mobilization of air-based nuclear power is a power display.”
the report pointed out that, unlike the inconspicuous submarines and the land-based missiles with low mobility, strategic bombers that can be deployed and withdrawn at will are often used as a tool to deter the enemy. The bat like B-2 bomber is the most advanced strategic bomber in the world, which has the stealth ability to penetrate the air defense system.
a spokesman for the eastern theater of the Chinese people’s Liberation Army said on the 13th: “the troops in the war zone will always maintain high alert and take all necessary measures to resolutely fight back all provocations that create ‘” and split the country. ”
Zhou Chenming, a military expert, said: “changes in the balance of power caused by the deployment (of the United States) may trigger a new crisis. This will not help solve the problem, but will make it worse. ”
in addition, according to the US Forbes weekly website on August 13, the US Army has some new reconnaissance aircraft in the experimental stage, and will carry out flight activities over the Western Pacific near China.
the report points out that the reasons are obvious. The U.S. Army wants to understand the role of the aircraft in a possible war between the United States and China, and purchase new high-tech equipment to support this role, such as giant artillery and hypersonic missiles.
it is reported that the US Army disclosed some details of the “atamis” reconnaissance plane on the social media platform on June 6. The atamis reconnaissance plane is actually a bombardier Challenger 650 dual engine business jet equipped with various sensors. This is the army’s first jet reconnaissance plane. Other reconnaissance aircraft in the army are propeller driven.
it was also reported that an “atamis” reconnaissance plane arrived in Japan on July 28. With the cooperation of a warship, it has been carrying out reconnaissance missions near the US Air Force’s large base in Okinawa.
it is reported that the “atamis” reconnaissance plane is equipped with a high-precision detection system, which is a set of sensors that combine a powerful ground scanning radar and a sensitive electronic intelligence receiver.
the aviation Affairs Department of the U.S. Army Program Executive Office said on the social media platform that the “atamis” reconnaissance plane “can sense enemy targets at high altitude and make up for the shortcomings in multi field combat tasks.”.
it is reported that “multi field operations” refer to the joint implementation of operational tasks by air force and ground forces or navy, air force and space forces – combat forces in different “fields”. The army’s main multi field combat tasks are missile defense and long-range firepower.
