The current aggressive war-wolf posture of the Chinese Communist regime has surprised the world. This foolish move, which was seen as a way to impose a downward spiral on the United States, especially the Biden regime, although rude and furious, did frighten many in the world who were confused by the Chinese Communist Party‘s fictitious illusion of power. In fact, the more the CCP is on the verge of extinction, the more aggressive, vicious and powerful it appears, because it must cover up its inner weakness with superficial ferocity. The CCP’s allegedly unstoppable and world’s most powerful military force, the foundation of the CCP’s man-overboard tactics, may face a blow from the new U.S. military strategy, thus instantly becoming insignificant and unstoppable once it confronts the U.S. military.
In a recent study, Todd Harrison, director of the Defense Budget and Space Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a U.S. think tank, noted the need to rethink the so-called “Remotely Crewed Systems” (RCS). Remotely Crewed Systems) in the future of the U.S. military. The repositioning of such combat systems will be extremely significant for the future of U.S. military forces. It is well known that one of the military tactics that the Chinese Communist Party relies on is the swarming tactic of manned sea tactics, ship-to-shore tactics, Drones, and even driving civilian populations and fishermen’s fishing boats as human shields to deflect artillery fire and shrapnel for the Communist forces. Thus, the U.S. military’s new strategy could play a decisive role in a possible future confrontation with the Chinese Communist military, crushing its strength.
The study argues that Remotely Crewed Systems (RCS) can be a force multiplier, increasing the combat power of the military without increasing the number of servicemen, or decreasing the number of servicemen without decreasing combat capability. Among them are remotely piloted aircraft (RPAs), or unmanned aerial vehicles, which are already heavily equipped for the U.S. military. The utilization of these aircraft as airborne intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ASIR) is much higher per aircraft and per flight hour than that of manned aircraft, and their personnel utilization and operating costs are much lower than those of manned aircraft.
Currently, the demand for these systems by U.S. military commanders on the front lines is so high that efforts to reduce military personnel and operating costs are ineffective, and the plan to replace manned aircraft with these “remotely piloted aircraft” (RPAs) is not moving forward quickly. But once U.S. policymakers and lawmakers recognize these bottlenecks and redirect funding, the pace of the U.S. military’s move toward unmanned aircraft, unmanned ships, unmanned submarines, unmanned air and space vehicles, and unmanned combat systems will accelerate dramatically, according to the growing tensions in our world.
The study suggests that if these “remotely piloted systems” are to be made more affordable, more widely available, and deployed in large numbers across land, sea, air, and space to fully replace manned aircraft, manned aircraft, manned ships, and manned maritime and space weapons systems, the U.S. military will have to rethink its force deployment, personnel organization, agency organization, and the way in which they are deployed. organization of personnel, organization of agencies, and training of military forces to better exploit automated means of warfare and to develop entirely new concepts for replacing garrison operations.
These strategic recommendations, in layman’s terms, mean that the U.S. military is about to enter a new era, using the most advanced robotic weapons systems in the sky, sea, land, and space; and the “soldiers” who operate these weapons systems are actually thousands and thousands of miles away on U.S. soil, protected by thick The “soldiers” who operate these weapons systems are actually thousands and thousands of miles away from the U.S. mainland, in those thick concrete and radiation-protected underground bunkers, operating these steel machines from a distance through satellites and fiber optics to fight against the flesh and blood of America’s enemies, such as the millions of Chinese Communist troops.
Assuming such a combat scenario, it would be brutal for the millions of Chinese Communist soldiers. Imagine flesh and blood facing steel, the five human senses facing extremely sensitive modern detectors, man-portable weapons facing precision-guided explosives and even “Little Lee’s Flying Dagger”-style precision killing weapons, artificial layers of military command systems facing autonomous control and artificial intelligence-equipped battlefield decision-making systems, flesh and blood bodies In the face of self-destructing machines …… in the near future, any military confrontation with the U.S. military, will find that they simply do not see the U.S. military GIs, do not see the flesh of the military, but rather face layers of machines, combat systems, autopilot and automatic flight weapons!
In the Trump era, the U.S. has dramatically increased its military power, specifically by giving the U.S. Navy an active duty force of 350 ships and 540,000 soldiers, a Marine Corps of 36 active duty infantry battalions, and an Air Force with 1,200 active duty fighter jets. The U.S. Air Force later expanded its target to a total of 386 flying squadrons.
The U.S. military’s Inflation-adjusted defense budget grew by a total of 12.7 percent from fiscal year 2016 to fiscal year 2019. The U.S. military has become stronger, but the size of the military has not grown proportionately to the budget. Military spending has increased by 12.7 percent, but the number of Navy ships has grown by 5.5 percent and the number of active duty Army soldiers has grown by only 1.9 percent.
The Marine Corps’ Army Plan 2030 argues that the Marine Corps needs enough “highly durable, long-range unmanned systems” and is divesting components such as their traditional tank battalions to fund the new systems. The U.S. Navy, too, has a planned long-range operating system in its FY 2021 budget and is poised to purchase a total of 11 medium and large long-range surface ships and six very large long-range surface ships by FY 2025. Trump’s Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has announced that the U.S. Navy plans to deploy 140 to 240 long-range surface ships and unmanned submarines. Over the next 30 years, the U.S. Navy’s unmanned, remotely operated ships will account for more than 25 percent of its total naval force.
Even from a purely theoretical standpoint, the U.S. military must go the way of remotely operated systems because the cost of manpower is increasing while the cost of technology is decreasing. The report’s recommendation to the U.S. military and lawmakers is that, given the long-term trend of rising costs and shrinking force structures, the U.S. military should explore the use of remote manning systems to augment, and in some cases replace, traditional force personnel and force structures. However, to make remote systems an affordable and scalable alternative, several issues must be addressed. One of these issues is a low-latency communications system.
For example, to control a “remotely piloted aircraft” (RPA), the communication link between the operator and the platform is critical. First, the signal to control the aircraft is transmitted via fiber optics from the control room to a nearby satellite ground station, then to a satellite in geostationary orbit 22,000 miles above the Earth, and then back to the aircraft in flight. The round trip Time for the signal to propagate from the satellite ground station to the aircraft and back to the aircraft is 540 milliseconds. New satellite systems deployed in low Earth orbit (LEO) have much lower latency because they are much closer to Earth. The round-trip transmission time of Musk’s SpaceX’s Starlink starlink system can be reduced to 20 milliseconds.
As Musk’s Starlink system becomes operational and his cooperation with the military continues to grow, the Chinese world is of course more interested in Musk’s relationship with the Chinese Communist Party, his investment in electric vehicles in Shanghai, and other related matters. The CCP could conceivably find Musk’s tesla cars a good model for them to learn about the latest electric cars, but it could also be a poison pill that makes the CCP military very unhappy. The CCP military is beginning to reject the Tesla car, and beyond the suspicion that the car could be used as a ground-based bug, there should be heavenly considerations, those of the new modernization of the U.S. military that could instantly neutralize millions of CCP troops.
