Original title: US think tank: 40 Chinese warships needed to deal with China and Russia 40% more than the existing ones

When US President Trump came to power, he promised to spend a lot of money to build a larger fleet. Now when the Pentagon is forced to start tightening the belt, the latest report from the US think tank admits that to deal with the increasingly active Sino-Russian navy, the number of US naval warships must be expanded to 400, even far above the most optimistic. planning.

According to the US "Defense News" website reported on the 27th, the latest report of the "Thought Foundation" of the US think tank declares that in order to achieve the goal of "deterring China and Russia", the US Navy must expand the fleet size to 400 ships by 2039. More than the expansion plan of the previous 355 warships. This is equivalent to a 40% increase in the number of ships in the US Navy and an increase of 12% in the "Building Shipbuilding Plan for the Next 30 Years". Even in terms of the most cost-effective shipbuilding method, this means an increase of $4 billion to $6 billion in annual expenses.

According to the previous 2018 version of the "Building Ship Plan for the Next 30 Years", the US Navy will build a huge fleet of 355 warships in 2050. Even with this plan, the United States will still be opposed to it. To achieve new goals, the US Navy will add a 13th aircraft carrier, 19 small surface ships, 7 amphibious warships and 22 logistics supply ships to the new shipbuilding plan to ensure the number of ships will be before 2039. Increased to 400 ships. This construction plan has been adopted in consideration of the best possible cost savings, as only minor adjustments to the number of large surface ships and nuclear submarines are required. The new small surface warships can perform a variety of secondary missions to free up large surface ships to form a new aircraft carrier battle group.

The report's author, Callander, admits that this goal is "somewhat difficult" with the current industrial production capacity and budgetary constraints of the United States, but in order to meet the established national security strategy of the United States aimed at the military conflict of major powers and the defense strategy formulated by Martís, The United States needs a navy composed of 400 warships, otherwise it will not be able to deter large countries such as China and Russia. The report said that despite the high cost of building a navy with 400 ships, the United States needs a larger, more powerful navy to deter opponents and prevent war. "If the future US Navy is not enough to deter China and Russia and other powerful opponents, the price that the United States will win in a possible war will far exceed the cost of building a navy with 400 ships."

However, this report is "untimely". Since Trump has already decided to gradually tighten US military spending from the 2020 fiscal year, the funds required for the US Navy's "super expansion plan" have no source.
