Is This What China Means By Civil?

It feels like we are in an endless cycle with China. China wants to take over Taiwan and it is only a matter of time until they build up their military enough to attempt the takeover. And China is making it known that they are getting ready to take us on with how they are training. It has been discovered that China is using targets that look like U.S. warships.

The Chinese military has built targets in the shape of an American aircraft carrier and other U.S. warships in the Taklamakan desert as part of a new target range complex, according to photos provided to USNI News by satellite imagery company Maxar.

The full-scale outline of a U.S. carrier and at least two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers are part of the target range that has been built in the Ruoqiang region in central China. The site is near a former target range China used to test early versions of its so-called carrier killer DF-21D anti-ship ballistic missiles, according to press reports in 2013.

This new range shows that China continues to focus on anti-carrier capabilities, with an emphasis on U.S. Navy warships. Unlike the Iranian Navy’s aircraft carrier-shaped target in the Persian Gulf, the new facility shows signs of a sophisticated instrumented target range.

The carrier target itself appears to be a flat surface without the carrier’s island, aircraft lifts, weapons sponsons, or other details, the imagery from Maxar shows. On radar, the outline of the carrier stands out from the surrounding desert – not unlike a target picture, according to imagery provided to USNI News by Capella Space.

There are two more target areas representing an aircraft carrier that does not have the metaling, but are distinguishable as carriers due to their outline. But other warship targets appear to be more elaborate. There are numerous upright poles positioned on them, possibly for instrumentation, according to the imagery. Alternatively, these may be used for radar reflectors to simulate the superstructure of the vessel.”

Taiwanese Officials seem to believe that they have at least until 2024 before the Chinese attack, but we may need longer with a stooge like Biden in office. China is already surpassing our military in many ways and in three more years we could be left in the dust.
