 Us think tank: to deal with China and Russia needs 400 warships, an increase of 40percent over the existing ones.


According to a new report from the US think tank Heritage Foundation, the US Navy must expand its fleet to 400 by 2039, far exceeding the previous expansion plan of 355 warships, to achieve the goal of deterring China and Russia. This is equivalent to a 40% increase in the number of U.S. Navy ships on the existing basis, and a 12% expansion of the next 30 years ship building program. Even in the most cost-effective way of building ships, this means spending an additional $4 billion to $6 billion a year.

According to the previous 2018 edition of the next 30 years ship building plan, the U. S. Navy will be built in 2050 355 warships composed of a huge fleet. Even with this plan, the United States will remain opposed. To achieve this new goal, the Navy will add 13 aircraft carriers, 19 small surface ships, 7 amphibious warships and 22 logistical replenishment ships to the new ship-building program to ensure that the number of ships increases to 400 by 2039. The plan is already a cost-effective one, with only minor adjustments to the number of large surface ships and nuclear submarines. New small surface ships can perform various minor tasks, thereby freeing up large surface ships to form a new carrier battle group.

The reports author, Calander, admitted that the goal was somewhat difficult because of current U.S. industrial production capacity and budgetary constraints, but that the U.S. needed a navy of 400 warships to meet its established national security strategy aimed at major military conflicts and defense strategy formulated by Defense Secretary Matisse. Deterring big powers like China and Russia. Reported that despite the high cost of building a navy with 400 ships, but the United States needs a larger, more powerful navy to deter opponents and prevent war. If the future US Navy is not enough to deter China and Russia and other powerful opponents, the cost of winning a possible war will be far greater than the cost of building a navy with 400 ships. But the report was out of date because Trump had already decided to gradually tighten U.S. military spending from fiscal year 2020, the U.S. Navys super expansion program has no source of funding.
