China A possible Neo Luddite Communist War Machine
Have you ever considered the reliance the western powers military on GPS and other satellites?
It guides our aircraft, cruise missiles, bombers, ships and all manner of other military applications that give us a great advantage over our enemies when it comes to the precession application of force. Allowing us to use less military resources to greater effect, meaning that the number of troops you require to defeat an enemy is less. We also have generation of pilots, ship captains and marines that are reliant on these technologies and wouldn’t know what a sextant was if it hit them.
The US no longer has long range high altitude recognisance aircraft such as the blackbird in favour of cheaper more effective satellites.
Secure communication and military systems also use satellites to get information clear across the globe in an instant.
So if China who have a vast conventional military superior in numbers and less reliant on Satellite technology was to destroy the GPS network, the spy satellites along with communication satellites. We would be blind, deaf and dumb, would it not be plausible they would severely level the playing field in terms of the ability to project its military force in favour of the less technologically reliant Chinese
A sobering thought
