Explosive 23mm (or higher?) explosive autocannon shells?

Those are sure to make one helluva mess out of a person. :shock: Just hold down the trigger to make the chunky salsa.

US moves THAAD missile system to South Korea to counter the PRK missile threat...China and Russia complain.

The Chicoms can go f*** themselves. They have been supporting the little murderous shit.

Quote:
The U.S. decision to send equipment needed to set up a controversial missile defense system in South Korea is likely to add to tensions with Beijing and Moscow, countries that have spoken out in the past about deploying the system.

China said Tuesday it would take measures against the U.S. missile system deployed in South Korea, and that the U.S. and Seoul would bear the consequences.

"China firmly opposes the deployment of THAAD," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said. "We will definitely be taking necessary measures to safeguard our own security interest. All consequences entailed from that will be borne by the U.S. and (South Korea). We once again strongly urge the relevant sides to stop the process of deployment and refrain from going further down that wrong path."

Lou Yuan, an outspoken, retired Chinese general, wrote in the Global Times, a state-run paper, that the Chinese military “could conduct a surgical hard-kill operation that would destroy the target, paralyzing it and making it unable to hit back,” The New York Times reported.

He went on, “Since the United States, Japan and South Korea choose not to respect China’s major security concerns, China does not need to be a gentleman on everything."

Washington and Seoul says the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system, or THAAD, is not meant to be a threat to China or Russia. The U.S. military said in a statement that THAAD can intercept and destroy short and medium range ballistic missiles during the last part of their flights.

Wouldn't it be rich to see the next North Korea launch and have their expensive toys blown out of the sky while the great leader is watching..... it would be worth whatever price...

Some words from WIKI

Quote:
On 17 October 2013, the South Korean military asked the Pentagon to provide information on the THAAD system concerning prices and capabilities as part of efforts to strengthen defenses against North Korean ballistic missiles.[42] However, South Korea decided it will develop its own indigenous long-range surface-to-air missile instead of buying the THAAD.[43] South Korean Defense Ministry officials previously requested information on the THAAD, as well as other missile interceptors like the Israeli Arrow 3, with the intention of researching systems for domestic technology development rather than for purchase. Officials did however state that American deployment of the THAAD system would help in countering North Korean missile threats.[44] Later South Korea announced it would be deploying THAAD by the end of 2017.[45]
In May 2014, the Pentagon revealed it was studying sites to base THAAD batteries in South Korea.[46] In November 2015, Japanese Defense Minister Gen Nakatani said he would consider the U.S. deploying the THAAD in Japan to counter the threat of North Korean ballistic missiles.[47] In February 2016, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi expressed concerns that deployment of THAAD in South Korea, despite being directed at North Korea, could jeopardize China's "legitimate national security interests."[48] The major controversy among Chinese officials is that they believe the purpose of the THAAD system, "which detects and intercepts incoming missiles at high altitudes, is actually to track missiles launched from China" not from North Korea.[49]
In July 2016, American and South Korean military officials agreed to deploy the THAAD missile defense system in the country to counter North Korea's growing threats and use of ballistic missile and nuclear tests; each THAAD unit consists of six truck-mounted launchers, 48 interceptors, a fire control and communications unit, and an AN/TPY-2 radar.[50] Seongju County in North Gyeongsang Province was chosen as the site to base the THAAD, partly because it is out of range of North Korean rocket artillery along the DMZ,[51] which sparked protests from Seongju County residents from fear of the radiation emitted by the AN/TPY-2 radar.[52] By October 2016, Japan was considering procuring either THAAD or Aegis Ashore to add a new missile defense layer.[53] On 30 September 2016, the U.S. and South Korea announced that THAAD would be relocated within the county, farther from the town's main residential areas and higher in elevation, to alleviate concerns.[54] On March 6, 2017, two THAAD launcher trucks arrived by air transport at Osan Air Base South Korea;[55][56] earlier that day, North Korea had launched 4 missiles.[57] Admiral Harry B. Harris Jr., United States Pacific commander, issued a statement on the deployment of the system.[58]


So the chinks say they are worried because we could TRACK their missile launches?

Bloomberg article

Quote:
A U.S. missile defense system being deployed in South Korea to counter North Korea is rubbing China the wrong way. The Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system, known as Thaad, is supposed to help South Korea protect itself from a North Korean military attack. But China sees Thaad as a threat that will break “the strategic equilibrium in the region.” This debate is taking place in a volatile corner of the world. North Korea has threatened to obliterate South Korean cities in rains of fire, conducted dozens of ballistic missile tests (including some this week) and vowed to advance its well-documented nuclear weapons capabilities.

1. How does Thaad work?

The system, made by Lockheed Martin Corp., is designed to destroy short-and-medium-ranged ballistic missiles at high altitudes in their “terminal” phase, as they descend. It’s different from conventional defense missiles, which are designed to get close to a target and self-detonate to damage or deflect the threat. According to Lockheed Martin, Thaad is more like hitting a bullet with a bullet: the missiles rely on infra-red seeker technology to locate and hit the target head on, completely destroying it, Lockheed says.

2. Could Thaad really save South Korea from an attack?

The Pentagon, in announcing the planned deployment last July, said the system would “contribute to a layered missile defense that will enhance the alliance’s existing missile defense capabilities against North Korean missile threats.” Some of China’s military experts question Thaad’s ability to take out North Korea’s short-range missiles and artillery shells because the system is designed for high-altitude (the "ha" in Thaad) intercepts on either side of the earth’s atmosphere. However, independent test results collected by a Cornell University scholar show that the bulk of Thaad’s testing has been against short-range targets, according to Rod Lyon, a fellow at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute in Canberra.

3. Does it pose an offensive threat?

No. Thaad missiles don’t carry warheads.

4. Could it knock down missiles launched by China at the U.S.?

Not really. China’s longer range intercontinental ballistic missiles targeting the continental U.S. would still be in their ascent phase when they pass by Thaad installations in South Korea. The same would be true if North Korea acquires an operational ICBM.

5. So what is China worried about?

It’s concerned that Thaad’s surveillance capabilities might be able to offer early tracking data to parts of the American ballistic missile defense system, eroding China’s ability to target the U.S. in the event of war, Lyon said. The Global Times, a Communist Party-affiliated newspaper, accused Seoul of “tying itself to the U.S. chariot and turning into an arrogant pawn of Washington in the latter’s military containment against China.”

6. So Thaad could give the U.S. an advantage against China?

Perhaps. The U.S. already has a Thaad battery deployed in Guam, two radars in Japan, space assets, plus a range of ship-borne radars and larger land based radars in other parts of the Pacific, according to Lyon. Thaad would perhaps improve early tracking of some Chinese missiles but might not make interception of the missiles much easier.

7. How is China responding?


So far, it’s ordered travel agencies to stop selling tour packages to South Korea and taken steps against Lotte Group, one of South Korea’s largest family-run conglomerates (or chaebol), which offered up the land that will host Thaad’s missile battery. "Lotte Group’s development in the Chinese market should come to an end,” the Global Times wrote in an editorial after the decision. South Korea media has reported that Chinese hacks rendered some of Lotte’s websites inoperable. South Korea responded by saying it would ensure Korean companies don’t face unfair trade measures in China.

8. What do experts say?

Beijing has tried to woo South Korea away from the U.S. orbit, an effort that will have failed if Thaad gets deployed, says Zhang Baohui, director of the Center for Asian Pacific Studies at Lingnan University in Hong Kong. Robert Kelly, a political science associate professor at South Korea’s Pusan National University, wrote that Beijing "is essentially demanding that South Korea remain defenseless -- roofless -- in the face of a spiraling nuclear missile threat on its doorstep. That is an astonishing ultimatum: to effectively surrender South Korean national security over an existential threat to demands of a foreign power.”

So sounds like the chinks are afraid THAAD in ROK might give OOOSAH a tiny advantage if the chinks launch a nuke strike against the OOOSAH ... oh my ... poor babies ... is it time for a war !!??

The question is why anyone in the west cooperates with China at all. They pretty much ignore WTO rules. They have openly stated that they will ignore findings from the Int Court of Arbitration in re territorial claims.

The west should impose the same kind of economic isolation of the PRC that was used against the USSR. If Europe, the USA, Korea, Austalia, Japan, Canada and New Zealand were to ban imports of goods from China or sale of raw materials TO China, all that shit would come to a sudden stop.
