Since the advent of Chinese anti-aircraft ballistic missiles, Western countries have been skeptical, especially some US analysts insist that anti-aircraft ballistic missiles are difficult to identify ships and strike them accurately, so the authenticity is doubtful. However, according to the latest satellite photos, China has built more simulated naval targets in remote desert areas of Xinjiang for testing of the PLA’s long-range anti-ship ballistic missiles. The target even includes a naval base.

“AFP” quoted the “US Naval Research Association News” report as saying that satellite photos show that some targets have been built along the eastern border of the desert, several are naval targets, and two of them are simulated warships docked. Satellite photos provided by Maxar Technologies in November 2021 showed that a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier and at least two Burke-class guided missile destroyers appeared in a new shooting range in the Taklimakan Desert. An equal-scale mock target, which has been used as a missile test target for the Chinese Rocket Force in the past.

According to comprehensive foreign media reports, simulated targets of large ships such as the US Navy aircraft carrier appeared in the missile range of the Chinese Rocket Force, reflecting that the Chinese military is eager to upgrade anti-aircraft carriers, special It is the ability to counter US aircraft carriers and other large ships. In addition, it is worth mentioning that the simulated targets of US aircraft carriers and guided missile destroyers located in the range are not stationary targets, “one of the ship targets appears to be parked on a 6-meter-wide track, which seems to show Simulate a moving ship during missile launch drills.”

The “AFP” report continued that satellite photos also found full-scale dock and destroyer targets in the same desert area in December 2021, but these targets have now been cleared. One of the missiles tested hit the center of the hull of a warship in February, “but the target was quickly removed,” the report said.

According to reports from Chinese media and Agence France-Presse, the All-Source Analysis Center (ASAS) used Maxar Technology’s high-definition satellite photos to discover the targets newly built by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army in the desert when studying aircraft carrier targets. Damien Symons, an independent military analyst, found a target simulating a naval base 190 miles southwest of here. The characteristics and locations of the targets indicate that they were built to test ballistic missiles.

In addition, China is developing several anti-ship ballistic missiles, and a recent video shows a mysterious air-launched anti-ship ballistic missile mounted under the fuselage of the Chinese Air Force H-6N, “and in addition to the land-based Dongfeng-21D and Dongfeng- 26 In addition to anti-ship ballistic missiles, the Chinese Navy’s Type 055 10,000-ton guided missile destroyer recently test-fired a newly developed YJ-21 carrier-based hypersonic anti-ship missile from its vertical launch unit.” Military analysts believe that Beijing is in the Xinjiang desert. The regional construction of targets, including naval ships and bases, and the development of multi-type anti-ship ballistic missiles are aimed at preventing the US military and its allies from helping Taiwan when conflicts break out in the Taiwan Strait.
