Those handful of ICBMs are considered first strike weapons(because they are openly based in silos). China's retaliatory missiles are hidden in horizontal tunnels dug inside of mountain ranges. No one in the West really knows how many ICBMs China really have.skyhawk2005 said:US is definitely not afraid of China. Why should USA fear China?
USA can destroy China. China cannot destroy USA. USA has more nukes than anyone else. China only has a handful ICBMs that can reach the USA.
No contest who wins in a war.
ICBM normally flies a polar route(over the North Pole). They not fly across the Pacific Ocean. 12000 Km range is sufficient to reach all parts of the continental U.S. Range is also a function of warhead size. The Chinese can easily extend the missile's range by installing a smaller warheadskyhawk2005 said:And these ICBMs have at most, 12000 KM range, enough to hit midwest, but not eastern seaboard.
ok, brother of snake, your not so bad. you have put contstuction into our threads. just keep you your posts unpatriotic and we'll be fine.BrotherofSnake said:lol what did I ever do to you?
What u did is basically TOO PATRIOTIC.lol what did I ever do to you?
What plane do you fly?As a current USAF pilot I can tell you we are not scared of the PLAAF as we could defeat them if the worst possible scenerio happened and stayed conventional. However, A conflict between the US and China would quickly end up being nuclear and conventional forces would'nt matter after the first few salvos. What we all need to do is cool down the rhetoric and work towards peace before the unthinkable aka a mankind killer can take place.
