US to Find Solutions to Deal with China’s Long-range Fast MissilesPosted: April 3, 2017
Business Insider’s article “The US Navy has a severe ‘missile gap’ with China and Russia — here’s how it can beat them anyway” says, “The US wields the world’s biggest, most powerful Navy, but recent developments in China and Russia’s missile inventory severely threaten the surface fleet with superior range and often velocity.”
As a result, “US Navy and Lockheed Martin have a variety of solutions in the works to tip the scales in the US’s favor by going hard on offense.”
Now, it is China who takes the initiative to make the US busy to find ways to deal with China’s new weapons. Certainly, the US will find some solutions, but when the US has found such solutions, China will have developed newer weapons to force the US to make further researches.
That is the beginning of the era of the US lagging behind China in weapon development.
