China ‘distributes fleet of fighter jets to air base near Taiwan after tying the island nearly 900 times in one year’

CHINA has distributed a large-scale fighter jet to an air base near Taiwan after buzzing around the island almost 900 times in one year.

Satellite images have captured fighter jets set up on an eastern base near the much-disputed island in the past week.

The J-16D planes – favored by the Chinese Air Force and designed for electronic warfare – are housed at an air base in Jiangxi Province.

Separate photos from January show another air base – this time in Zhejiang province – which is being expanded with new hangers and other infrastructure being built.

“All air bases along the southeast coast are being expanded and upgraded to accommodate more fighter jets as more and more large-scale air moves are underway,” wrote Andrei Chang, editor of the Kanwa Defense Review in Canada.

“Deployment of 52 aircraft [in the first sortie] on Monday, the PLA’s (People’s Liberation Army) air combat force shows.

“I expect more types of PLA aircraft to be shipped in the future, with the largest ranges covering more than 100 [planes]. “

The South China Morning Post, a mouthpiece for the communist government, quoted a military source in Beijing as confirming that the aircraft had been used as “part of combat readiness training”.

It comes as China sent totally 77 fighter jets flew into Taiwan’s air defense identification zone (ADIZ) – the biggest intrusion ever by Chinese aircraft – last weekend.

And Taiwan’s Defense Ministry said 52 aircraft, including nuclear components, flew into ADIZ alone on Monday.

That brings the total number of flights to more than 815 as of Monday, according to figures seen by NZ Herald.

THE RISE OF MACHINES

China is intensifying its harassment of the island, which it considers part of its territory.

Beijing has long threatened to use force to bring the island under its control and has implemented regular invasion exercises with his military.

It even sent out warships to shadow American and British aircraft carriers in the South China Sea.

In fact, China has plowed billions in high-tech weapons such as stealth bombers, hyersonic missiles and even terminator troops.

The “Carrier Killer” missile consists of a rocket that flies to about 25 miles above the ground and then launches a Hypersonic Glide Vehicle (HGV).

Armed with a warhead, it then travels at 10 times the speed of sound and can be steered on a target with such accuracy that analysts believe that only artificial intelligence and computer systems can stop them.

China is also developing a new advanced stealth bomber that can strike large US bases in the Pacific with nuclear weapons.

The 5,000 km range of the Xian H-20 means it can beat Guam and other important facilities, making it a “game changer” according to an expert.

Pictures revealed in a newspaper run by the state-owned defense company China The North Industries Group describes the aircraft as “the god of war in the sky”.

Beijing also has a fleet of drones with the WZ-8 drone that can fly at up to five times the speed of sound and spy on American forces at great distances.
