Lately, we’ve been focusing on threats to security and global hot spots. And that means the week would be incomplete without a discussion of China’s so-called “carrier killer.”
You see, China has developed a missile that travels at Mach 10 and is intended to stymie America’s ability to project forward her naval forces around the globe. The carrier killer is part of the latest strategic thinking in China’s anti-access area-denial, or A2-AD, strategy.
Whenever the United States senses a threat, it sends a flotilla of ships to the area. The navy typically deploys a Carrier Strike Group (CSG) consisting of one aircraft carrier, one guided missile cruiser (for air defense), two Light Airborne Multipurpose System (LAMPS) capable warships, and one or two anti-submarine destroyers or frigates.
