I've posted this in the Strategic Defense thread, but here is the higher res version of the same chart:

The upper left one is from the mischief Reef. This is the one Philippines crying the loudest because its the closest one. It wants US to make China stop.

I am wondering whether China is going reclaim the whole ring or just like that from above with enough land to build a runway.
If the whole ring that would be very big.

I checked the map, wow, the 3 giant reclaimed lands that can host airfield form a perfect triangle; subi reef(North), fiery cross reef(West) and mischief reef(East). And each of them is 120 to 150 miles apart.
"The Golden Triangle"??

I guess 3 airfields to reinforce each on in case under attack and hold the fort & wait for reinforcement from mainland.

Shaolian, its great picture and I believe its proportionally sized.

many members here don't read Chinese, if you could do us a favour by put the name of island and ownership (controlled) would be awesome ... we know the number is the size of island in sq km

The construction has been astounding. I wonder when they're going to be putting some actual defences on the island tho. Like anti-ship and anti-air missiles. That strategy worked wonderfully for the Russians in Crimea.
