Washington [US], January 31: US Vice-Admiral Jeffrey Trussler, the vice president of Naval Operations for Information Warfare and Director of Naval Intelligence on Friday said that Beijing's vaunted DF-26 ballistic rocket - the alleged "plane carrying warship executioner" won't 'win the following war, revealed Washington Examiner. 

"I trust they simply continue to empty cash into that sort of thing. That may not be the way we win the following war," said Trussler during an Intelligence and National Security Alliance occasion. 

A race between the Chinese and the US military powers to acquire urgent favorable circumstances in a likely clash to control the South China Sea is well in progress. 

China has shown a variety of new military abilities custom-made to overcome the US military, the freshest being the DF-26 ballistic rocket. 

In promulgation, the Chinese state media has featured the risks of the alleged "plane carrying warship executioner," purportedly found somewhere down in Chinese region yet equipped for striking US military positions a large number of miles away, revealed Washington Examiner. 

In the interim, Pentagon authorities flagged that the Chinese Communist system's trust in the new weapon is lost. 

"They're pouring a great deal of cash in the capacity to, fundamentally, edge their coasts in the South China Sea with hostile to deliver rocket ability," said Trussler. "At the point when you see that, those are alarming turns of events. They're likely pointed and explicitly created toward the United States Navy, so we watch them intently." 

China has asserted by far most of the South China Sea, an area of untamed sea "more than twice [the size] of the Mediterranean Sea," in resistance of the regional privileges of a few adjoining nations. Practical control of those ocean paths would bring major monetary preferences, while the expanding weakness of US partners and American powers in the district may require a conservation empowers Beijing to carry any future clash to American shores, revealed Washington Examiner. 

"As of now, the U.S. military has an exhaustively evolved rocket protection organization, which includes a weighty component of boat based frameworks," Singapore-based military expert Collin Koh told the South China Morning Post. 

Notwithstanding the rocket guard tests, US military authorities as of late have featured the way that the US Air Force's B-52 airplane can bomb the Chinese military on only 28 hours' notification. However, more work stays to be done, said Gregory Poling, a US expert of Center for Strategic and International Studies. (ANI)
