 Taiwan media hyped PLAs deployment of Dongfeng 17 to deter us aircraft carriers along the southeast coast


[World Wide Web Report Ma Yan] Taiwanese media have recently re quoted the topic of Chinas southeast coast missile, saying the PLA deployed more advanced missiles to put pressure on Taiwan.

Taiwans United News Network quoted a report from the South China Morning Post on October 18 that the PLA has equipped the southeast coast with new dongfeng-17 Supersonic Missiles to replace the dongfeng-11 and dongfeng-15 missiles that have been deployed here for decades. Compared with the old missile, dongfeng-17 has a longer range, up to 2500 km and higher accuracy.

Dongfeng-17 is a hypersonic weapon, and its complex flight path makes it very difficult to intercept it, increasing its success rate of hitting targets, according to Wikipedia. Due to the improvement of warhead shape and the reduction of payload, the range of dongfeng-17 has been greatly increased, and it is mainly used to attack high-value targets such as anti missile and air defense system of the other side.

In addition, the report deliberately points out that the range of dongfeng-17 not only covers Taiwan, but also touches the US military base in Yokosuka, Japan. Although the main goal of dongfeng-17 is to deter Taiwan independence, if the mainland decides to militarily unify Taiwan, the dongfeng-17 can be used to stop the intervention of the US aircraft carrier battle group.

The mainlands military trend in the southeast coast has always been a hot topic for Taiwan media. Before that, Taiwan media have been speculating about PLA military aircraft flying near Taiwan Island and PLA military exercises in the Taiwan Strait region.
