Satellite images obtained by news agencies on Sunday (7) show what it will be Complete models of warships from United State Built in the middle of a desert China. Although there is no official information on why these buildings were built, it is believed that they are functional Chinese military training targets.

From the photos it is possible to see that at least one of the models is a duplicate of an aircraft carrier and another, a destroyer. One of the targets was seen attached to the rails used to transport it. Among the large-scale structures, there were a few that were more complex, and appeared to be navigational instruments, according to the US Naval Institute (USNI).

Centered on massive aircraft carriers, US Navy combat commands are among the most powerful weapons in the US arsenal. One of them is stationed in the Pacific Ocean, observing major areas such as Taiwan and the South China Sea – where there is an ongoing dispute in Chinese territorial waters.

On the other side of the territorial dispute, China has been developing naval combat missiles for several years. This arms race includes projectiles capable of destroying aircraft carriers.

The photos caught the attention of the US military authorities. The US Naval Institute says these models were built more than two years ago — the aircraft carrier, a report said, between March and April 2019.

He added, “It went through many reconstructions and was almost completely dismantled in December 2019. But the site was used again at the end of September this year, and construction was practically completed at the beginning of October.”

The US institute also says that according to intelligence firm AllSource Analysis, the area has already been used to test ballistic missiles in the past.

Asked about the photos, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said on Monday he was not aware of the situation.

Beijing is introducing a major project to modernize its arsenal, according to a Pentagon report released last week, with many of its weapons designed to help neutralize major US ships in the event of a regional conflict.

The Chinese military deployed some of its missiles to the exercises, which, according to testimony given months earlier to Congress by US Navy Admiral Philip Davidson, “is an unmistakable message to the regional and global audience.”

The United States regularly conducts operations in the South China Sea and around Taiwan, to the chagrin of Beijing.

China claims sovereignty over most of this maritime area and considers Taiwan as part of its territory to be restored, one day, by force if necessary.
