This model is called”joint surveillance target attack radar system” (JointSTARS), equipped with the most advanced airborne ground surveillance, target search and battlefield management system of the US military, can be called the”central nerve” of the US military’s air-to-ground combat. The aircraft can detect, identify and classify ground targets outside the defense zone, and transmit the data to the rear command post in real time. The”South China Sea Strategic Situational Awareness Program” platform stated that the aircraft’s focus is on monitoring and developing opponent’s ground radar systems. This time it is intended to collect data from the ground radar system and may conduct electromagnetic suppression.

For the approach reconnaissance of US warships, the spokesperson of the Ministry of National Defense Wu Qian Colonel in June A regular press conference by the Ministry of National Defense stated that with the joint efforts of regional countries, the situation in the East China Sea and the South China Sea is generally stable. This fully shows that the countries in the region have the wisdom, ability, and means to negotiate through consultations, settle differences, and protect peace. On the other hand, the United States, as a country outside the region, under the guise of so-called”freedom of navigation”, sent military warships to provoke the East China Sea and the South China Sea, conducted high-frequency approach reconnaissance against China, held highly targeted military exercises, and seriously endangered regional countries. China’s sovereignty and security interests have seriously undermined regional peace and stability.

Zhang Junshe, a Chinese naval military expert, also said recently that in fact, the US military has frequently sent warships and fighters into the South China Sea for many years to engage in numerous military exercises and cruise activities, show off its force, and even send warships into other countries. Approaching reconnaissance and so-called”freedom of navigation” operations in sea and airspace violate the sovereignty and security of coastal countries and undermine peace and stability and good order in the South China Sea. This is the fundamental reason for the stability of the situation in the South China Sea.
