The following is based on a translation of a report from Chinese media:

China’s top official media CCTV reported in its primetime news that China has successfully launched its new Changzheng VI rocket to send 20 satellites into their orbits.

18 of the 20 satellites had successfully separated from the rocket while the remaining 2 would be separated in one month’s time.

The report says that the rocket, when used to carry an ICBM, will be a formidable weapon.

According to the report, the rocket uses liquid oxygen and kerosene. That enables it to reignite many times to change its trajectory so that no interception is possible.

In addition, it is not assembled on site but is carried to the site as a whole horizontally and erected at the site.

As a result there is no scaffold in its launching site, which means the rocket can be carried on a railway carriage from the tunnel it has been hiding to its launch site, erected there and launched within a very short period of time before it is discovered by the enemy.

The report continues that previously only Russia had the technology to keep liquid fuel in an ICBM without eroding its shell, but now China has now also also mastered such a technology so that the rocket can stay in hiding with fuel stored in it.

There will therefore not be the long duration of time spent in filling it with fuel before it is launched.

That will greatly shorten the time of its launch and make it a formidable weapon because in wartime, because time is everything.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
