In a new report published by the Center for a New American Security, Cmdr. Tom Shugart, USN, former CNAS senior military fellow, and Cmdr. Javier Gonzalez, USN, former Navy fellow at Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory, examine the threat that China’s People’s Liberation Army Rocket Force poses to American military installations in the Asia-Pacific region. The researchers using geographic, photographic and military-strategic data available in the public domain, the researchers were able to pinpoint potential targets of Chinese missile attacks. “The results of our modeling and simulation, which show the potential for devastation of U.S. power projection forces and bases in Asia, are deeply concerning – and a call for action,” they write.
