On February 15th, the official Chinese navy released a short video of the Shandong ship shouting in English to drive away in the South China Sea. The English slogan This is Chinese navy warship 17 (this is the Chinese Navy Shandong) has attracted widespread attention from the outside world. Some military experts believe that the People’s Liberation Army and the U.S. aircraft carrier or carrier-based aircraft have been in close contact, so they will use specific English warnings.
Now in the South China Sea, there is not only the Shandong aircraft carrier conducting actual combat exercises, but the two aircraft carrier strike groups of the US Navy are both in the South China Sea. At present, the US Navy has deployed the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier strike group and the USS Makin Island Lightning aircraft carrier strike group in the South China Sea. Among them, the Nimitz aircraft carrier has sailed into the South China Sea from the west after the Spring Festival holiday after a quick visit to the South China Sea in early January, and has been operating in the southern part of the South China Sea. It has circled a large circle in the southern part of the South China Sea in just one month. Corresponding naval and air combat exercises are being held. According to the aircraft carrier Sydney Meads, there are three Arleigh Burke-class destroyers escorting the entire process.
The USS Makin Island is an amphibious assault ship of the U.S. Navy. It has been converted into a lightning aircraft carrier and is mainly equipped with F-35B stealth fighter jets. The USS Makin Island is currently operating in the South China Sea. External analysis predicts that Makin Island will continue to conduct a new round of large-scale military exercises in the South China Sea after rendezvous with the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier. Under the influence of the current U.S. “stray balloon” incident, the U.S. Navy will conduct a provocative dual-carrier battle group exercise in the South China Sea, which is regarded as a warning signal to China.
However, the Shandong aircraft carrier battle group of the People’s Liberation Army is also on standby in the South China Sea, closely monitoring the US military and conducting actual combat exercises. That is to say, there are currently three aircraft carriers of the Chinese and US navies operating in the South China Sea. This time CCTV released the video of the Shandong aircraft carrier shouting to the outside world, which contains a lot of information in English. Why do you say that? When PLA warships or fighter planes need to use English to speak, they encounter foreign military aircraft or aircraft carriers. Therefore, the Shandong aircraft carrier battle group may have contact with two US aircraft carrier strike groups in the South China Sea. Some netizens think that it may be that the aircraft carriers of China and the United States have had close contact, but this is not very likely, because the aircraft carrier battle groups of both sides will maintain a certain distance even in the South China Sea, and both aircraft carriers will take off and land ships. Carrier aircraft, patrol and guard missions around the aircraft carrier fleet. Therefore, it is unlikely that the Chinese and American aircraft carriers will be in close contact. It is more likely that the J-15 carrier-based aircraft of the People’s Liberation Army has discovered the carrier-based aircraft of the US military, so they shouted in English.
This is divided into two situations. One is that the U.S. carrier-based aircraft enters the practice blockade of the PLA Shandong aircraft carrier. At this time, the J-15 carrier-based aircraft of the Shandong ship will directly call in English to inform and drive away the U.S. carrier-based aircraft. . The other is that the carrier-based aircraft or warships of the US aircraft carrier battle group maliciously cross the territorial waters of islands and reefs near the South China Sea. At this time, the J-15 carrier-based aircraft or the Shandong ship will still use English to warn and drive them away. .
We have always been well aware of the traces of the US military in the South China Sea. In recent years, with the continuous strengthening of the People’s Liberation Army’s navy and air force, we can monitor the US fleet entering the South China Sea in real time, including tracking it with naval and air forces. Previously, the USS Nimitz had to leave the South China Sea at a high speed of 25 knots because it could not bear the tracking of two 054A frigates of the People’s Liberation Army. It can already be said that it has firmly grasped the initiative.
It can be said that CCTV released a video about the Shandong ship shouting in English, and the message released is very obvious, that is, the Chinese and American militaries have already had some kind of contact to a certain extent in the South China Sea. Of course, with regard to this incident, some observers believe that the English call may be to show the international image of the Chinese navy, and some people think that this is the performance of the Chinese navy in safeguarding territorial sovereignty and maritime rights and interests in the South China Sea.
The actions of the US military in the South China Sea have also aroused dissatisfaction from all parties. In recent years, the United States has continuously strengthened its military presence in the South China Sea and conducted so-called “freedom of navigation operations”. This is actually a challenge to China’s sovereignty and security. In addition, the United States and its allies have also strengthened military cooperation in the South China Sea region, trying to make a big fuss about the South China Sea issue, and provoke tensions between countries around the South China Sea and China, and use this to profit.
This incident shows that the tense relationship between China and the United States in the South China Sea region still exists, and the U.S. military has repeatedly provoked incidents in the South China Sea, which may lead to further deterioration of regional stability and security. Therefore, China and the United States, especially the United States, need to recognize their own mistakes, correct their own problems, strengthen communication and cooperation, and stop meaningless provocative actions to ease regional tensions.
