Military flights by China

China's military has sent digital monitoring and reconnaissance planes and helicopters to disputed islands in the South China Sea, as per the report of the Washington Times, as it prepares to construct the world's first commercial compact modular reactor (SMR). Thus according to satellite images received by the publication,

the deployment of PLA KJ-500 airborne missile guiding planes to Mischief Reef in the Spratly Islands began in May and June. Other satellite images from June and this month show a Y-9 cargo plane and a Z-8 helicopter stationed at Subi Reef.KQ-200 anti-submarine reconnaissance planes were stationed on Fiery Cross Reef the year before.

The islands are a component of a trinity of military sites in the South China Sea which can store a range of aircraft and bombers, along with docking possibilities for most Chinese vessels, according to the Washington Times. J Michael Dahm, a retired Navy intelligence officer who now is affiliated with the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, or APL, acquired satellite images of the military aircraft.

According to the Washington Times, strike jets, observation planes, and island-based anti-surface and anti-air missile systems “will likely be employed to cover and defend Chinese naval forces, giving them the ability to project military power deep into the South China Sea and Southeast Asia,”
