After India now the USA has also been recognized China as the biggest threat to them.
At the Times Now Summit 2021, Indian Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat said that China masters in playing mind games and India should not come under any such pressure from their psychological warfare. He also said India’s enemy number one is China, not Pakistan.
Now the USA also comments the same thing that India said earlier. Many intelligence documents collected by the US military in recent times have shown that China is growing day by day and will surpass the US sooner or later.
According to the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), China’s weapons technology development rate is accelerating, while Russia’s is hindered by many factors. However, both countries are America’s main rivals for high-tech weapons over the next 20 years.
DIA director Lieutenant General Scott D. Berrier said China will “fundamentally modernize” its military in six years and aims to introduce the most “breakthrough” military technologies by 2030-2035, according to the report provided by the Senate Armed Services Committee to the US Air Force magazine on April 29. Over the next two decades, any of the three major military powers , China, Russia, or the United States, could take the lead in one or more areas. All three military powers above can devise new weapons or concepts to change the nature of war.
But China’s approach, which Berrier calls “civil-military fusion,” deliberately blurs the lines between civilian and military technology efforts, with China investing more in these efforts are posing “the greatest threat to America’s technological superiority”.
In fact, according to Mr. Berrier, China has “reached par or near par in many areas of research” and has targeted 57 specific technologies to surpass and outpace the US military. Before long, China will almost certainly be able to deter American and allied forces at a much greater distance from China than before.
By 2027, China is expected to be able to win a small number of short-term but high-level military conflicts. By 2050, China plans to become the world’s leading military power.
To highlight China’s progress, the DIA noted that China has deployed a new J-20 stealth fighter to the border area with India during recent tensions between the two countries.
China is one of the leaders in artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, quantum information science, biotechnology, and advanced robotics. The leadership in this area is due to indigenous capabilities as well as “legal and illegal acquisition of foreign technology”. This has put China “at the forefront of many scientific fields”.
On the other hand, Russia also has a “huge” military-industrial complex, which has adopted a strategy of targeting military technologies to match, counter, or offset the advantages of the United States and that of another country. other competitors, instead of pursuing its own pioneering efforts.
Russia can produce large quantities of weapons and it is trying to strengthen its advanced technological capabilities, but the country is challenged both organizationally and technically to develop, to create industrial auxiliary components. required for advanced weapons, because of “severe limitations in funding, resources and infrastructure” in science and technology
Because of these different approaches, China is likely to be the biggest threat to America’s technological superiority. For three years, the intelligence community has described China as a “rapid threat” to the US military
The Washington Post newspaper quoted former US officials and Western analysts as saying that at a secret military facility in southwestern China, a supercomputer is working day and night, simulating the heat and drag of hypersonic rockets accelerating through the atmosphere.
The computer is equipped with chips designed by a Chinese company called Phytium Technology, analysts say. These chips use American software and are made at the world’s most advanced chip factory in Taiwan.
According to some documents, the aforementioned hypersonic testing facility is located at the China Aerodynamic Research and Development Center (CARDC), the “heart of the country’s hypersonic weapons research and development”. . CARDC has up to 18 wind tunnels, participating in many Chinese hypersonic weapons research projects.
Phytium’s partnership with CARDC is a prime example of how China is quietly exploiting civilian technology for military purposes with the help of Chinese technology. On the other hand, the case involving Phytium also shows the “dilemma” for Taiwan, an island stuck between the US and China.
Currently, large Chinese investments in hypersonic weapons are a concern for the Pentagon. US military experts fear that China could target US naval ships and air bases in the Pacific with hypersonic missiles, which take only a few minutes to reach the target, making the system defense hard to stop.
