Two U.S. Navy fellows examine Chinese PLA Rocket Force missile strike doctrine and its potential application to U.S. fixed bases in the region. They reveal satellite imagery of possible evidence of Chinese testing of ballistic missile capabilities and preemptive strikes, assess – via open-source tools – the capacity of China to defeat U.S. and allied ballistic missile defenses, and provide recommendations on how best to address the threat. This will be presented in conjunction with the release of an associated report delving deeper into the topic.
