S Korea eager to build aircraft carrier as Asia Pacific tension rises

この記事を書いている人 - WRITER -

The United Kingdom’s new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth is heading towards the Asia Pacific on a six-month mission being described as the most significant deployment of its kind in decades.
The move has angered China, which sees it as an intrusion into the South and East China seas.
And as Al Jazeera’s Rob McBride reports from the South Korean port city of Busan, the mission is fuelling debate among Asian nations about building their own carriers.

    • Avatar Poros says:

      @tugful no. 39 other countries helped. The US may contributed the most what they did was destabilize the region in the long run. The US targeted N. Korean civilians, bombed farms and crop lands which is a violation of UN laws. Civilians were most of the casualties from the N. Korean Side. and right after the famine broke out as a result. Millions died from that as well. U white people blame N. Korea, treat them as a threat and while I admit Kim family are a bunch of ruthless dictators the general consensus if bcz what the US did to the unarmed population.

    I would suggest smaller carriers that are mostly armed with drone attack craft. 50% fighter drone/50% suicide bomb drones by capacity. Cheaper, less runway required, faster. Traditional aircraft carriers and manned jets are going to be replaced.

    • Avatar Aleksandar Bisenić says:

      YOU ARE SO RIGHT! What a cool idea

    • Avatar Justin Ng says:

      Fighter drone tech are still under development and suicide bomb drones (ie loitering drones) is still not as useful yet. There’s already much less tech involved with S Korea and Japan’s carriers since F35 is STOVL and so no catapult is required. Honestly even with drones the runway length requirement might still be more or less the same.

      And if you’re in a strike group, chances are you only need AEWACS to detect other ships then send a missile. Suicide drones are prolly not necessary at all.

      The literal and only reason why S Korea and Japan are able to have these carriers is because they bought F35-Bs.

    • Avatar Aleksandar Bisenić says:

      @Justin Ng Yeah your arguments make sense too. Maybe the point is that fighter jets need to be made smaller and less expensive.

    Speaking of aircraft carrier, India has greater advantage not only in design and building, we also have lots of experience of crew training and management, I think South Korea should just ask India to buy a custom build carrier, it’s much cheaper and, will be more advance and reliable.

      Why should Korea cooperate with India? It is true that India has the most experience in aircraft carrier operations in Asia. However, Korea is not a country that only diplomacy in Asia. The models they presented in this video were influenced by Britain(hyundai) and Italy(daewoo). In fact, Britain is already approaching Korea, and the Queen Elizabeth Class plans to stop by Korea. There is no reason for Korea to choose India.

      @대한민국 South Korea
      Yes sure… 😔

    • Avatar Galunggong says:

      @Win Kus remember not all wars should be assumed to be confined in one region. Perhaps the South Koreans would see a need to join with other Chinese enemies like India to seal off the Strait of Malacca to Chinese shipping for example in a hypothetical war. Curiously most war games from the American and Chinese think tanks for example always assume any war between them would be confined to East Asia. China’s current achilles heel could be the fact that their overseas assets are lightly or underdefended. The same with a war between SK and China, though highly unlikely as SK is economically dependent on China currently, and they seem somewhat friendly (other than the THAAD deployment issue).

      @mountain dweller well it’s unfortunate that you fall into the west propagandas machinery about China. And yes of course China isn’t perfect just like all countries. All am saying is we should also sometimes see the good sides to.

    • Avatar Galunggong says:

      @Menrad Mwaliko there is nothing wrong with seeing the good sides of any country, including China, it is just so many Chinese think their government is infalible and never makes mistakes. So much to the point where if someone offers them a criticism or different opinion in a discussion then they immediately either deflect to “Western propaganda” or some form of whataboutism on the Americans. For example in Philippines there are many good points to be seen from China such as the vaccines they have given us, but there is also a lot of resentment towards China because of the perception that China has not respected Philippines sovereignty and territorial integrity or they have not treated Filipino civilians like fishermen well in the disputed South China Sea region that both countries claim. This said Filipinos will not be used as American pawns against China, and our government never makes issue over Taiwan. It is only the territorial dispute that is problem.

    • Avatar mountain dweller says:

      @Menrad Mwaliko its the similar question in the South China Sea, a bit like why ? did the former Soviet block countries all want to join NATO , always a reason why countries feel safer in a collective defence organisation

      @John Smith so Britain decides they won’t return what they stole cos the owners Cant be trusted to keep those things,can you even hear yourself, for your info, the kidnappings happen in the northern Nigeria, the sculptures where stolen from the eastern and western parts of the country

    • Avatar John Smith says:

      @River styx
      You’re massively trivialising an issue that has been at the centre of debate for decades. I’m assuming you’re talking about the Benin Bronzes? Which were created within a Kingdom that no longer exists but now happens to reside in what is now modern day Nigeria? It might be argued that Nigeria’s claim to the Benin Bronzes isn’t cultural, but rather geographical.
      Not only that but within the Kingdom of Benin, bronze and ivory could not be owned by anyone besides the king, so in theory, they belong to him, not Nigeria.
      It also doesn’t really matter where Boko Haram are most prevalent, my point was that Nigeria’s government can’t even be trusted to ensure the safety of schoolgirls, let alone ancient artefacts many would argue don’t even belong to them.

    • Avatar River styx says:

      And those thousands of tanks from North Korea are mostly outdated junks, while South Korea has 4th largest ground force in the world with high tech vehicles. And you know what, modern wars are not something like ground force fight with ground force, navy fight with navy… Ground force and navy should be integrated during the war. Aircrafts from carriers can bombard tanks

    • Avatar Dan2314 Wonderluck says:

      @Bari Forever outdated??? Have you have seen what an “outdated” tank can do to an infantry battalion with no tanks.

      The Korean peninsula is one of the worst places in the world to fight. The North has turned its territory into a fortress. If you invade expect losses to be huge. Expect to have casualties of 1/3 to 1/2 of your troops.

      It woukd be equivalent to the scenario where the US had to invade mainland Japan in WWII.

      It would be a blood bath, not to mention North Korea still has a defense agreement with China.

      It would be horrible.

Australia, interestingly enough, will be very difficult for China to beat due to how dangerous the land can be. And it’s not the military the Chinese should worry about.

      And please keep in mind that before the pandemic every week there were 5000 flights FROM Wuhan to the other cities in the rest of China, but only 2 to 3 flights from Wuhan to the US.

      Nevertheless, outside of Wuhan, Hubei barely anyone within China got infected.

      China’s total infection were less than 100 000, less than 5000 dead while the US got over 33 million infections and over 600 000 deaths.

      And to defend themselves from NK and potentially even China. There may not be much dispute with China now since THAAD disagreement, but no one knows how the future will develop. Any country with disagreements with China should be arming themselves just in case for due diligence. Even the Australians are finally starting to do so with their recent hypersonic missile program. Curiously Zhao Lijian the Chinese FM spokesman complained about that though as for some reason many Chinese think they are the only country in Asia who should be rapidly expanding their military, even in offensive war fighting capabilities. The Chinese even try to minimize their buildup by claiming it is commensurate with their GDP. No nation’s defense capabilities should be governed soley by their GDP. Especially SK who faces a hostile north and even issues with the Russians. Remember China and Russia even violated South Korean and Japanese air space two years in a row with their joint bomber flights.

It would be South Koreas due dilligence to develop defensive capabilities from any potential threat, even China. Japan is unlikely to be a threat anyway to South Korea as they share the same political system and are faced with an ever growing expansionist China who is also rapidly arming themselves in offensive war fighting capabilities. Any nation in Asia who has any form of diplomatic difference with China should be arming themselves rapidly just in case. Even the Australians are developing hypersonic missiles to defend themselves from China. Especially when some official Chinese media like Global Times have called for Australia to be attacked with ballistic missile strikes.

      They were. China is the biggest now, for national or international clients. Build a military vessel is totally different than build a commercial vessel anyways. You saw him talking about it in the video. These carriers are expected to be delivered by 2033

      I actually think they are doing this with their eyes on the Japanese who themselves are building two carriers.

      There is no other reason why they would want to build a carrier since if war were to break up in the Korean peninsula with North Korea and China the war would be fought on land.

      Furthermore, South Korea actually has very good relations with China. That is why they refused to join the Quad against China despite being heavily pressured by the US to do so.

      South Korea has a better relationship with China than they have with Japan whom they are contesting a few Islands with.

    • Avatar Galunggong says:

      More like due dilligence as a sovereign country to maintain a credible defense. If South Korea thinks they need aircraft carriers for their defensive strategy then that is their business. Just like the Chinese who are also investing heavily in aircraft carriers for their “defense” needs.

    The UK and USA are sending carriers to side with countrys like South Korea and Japan if china starts anything . Western colonialism kept a lot of the worlds seas safe , and the British got out of the empire business but they don’t want to see former colonies taken over by china . They aren’t going to invade India or Burma so no country has reason to fear them . China on the other hand is a worry

    • Avatar Dan2314 Wonderluck says:

      Chinese anti ship ballistic missiles and cruise missiles have their names on them.

      The Chinese have turned the first and second island Chain into the ultimate kill zone.

      If war were to start anyone with carriers in that region would have their carriers turned into floating coffins.

    • Avatar Galunggong says:

      @Dan2314 Wonderluck not necessarily. Even the Chinese think the aircraft carriers have uses such as their think tanks always speculate the use of Liaoning and Shandong to defend the East side of Taiwan from outside intervention if the PLA ever invade. The Americans and others are also keenly aware of China’s obvious missile strategies and are working on ways to negate the threat such as spreading out their forces. Curiously most think tanks from both US and China who always assume that any war between the countries would be confined to the East or South China Seas obviously overlook the vulnerability of China’s overseas assets which could be their achilles heel. If the Americans or any force that is facing China in a war blockade the Strait of Malacca and other similar Straits, to draw the PLA Navy out into a non-regional battle, it could go very badly for China given their blue water navy limitations. China’s overseas shipping could be constricted and their base in Djibouti destroyed, along with any other overseas assets. Sooner or later China would have to send a fleet to protect them or expect the Russians to intervene on their behalf. Do not get me wrong. I am not saying any of these moves guarantee any victory over China, only pointing out that nobody knows how any actual war would go and there are many ways to deal a destructive blow to China than facing them head on regionally.

    Maintaining an aircraft carrier is extremely expensive. It’s as outdated as fighter jets. Future military should use autonomous military equipment such as drones, pilotless jets, self-driving tanks, etc.

    • Avatar Ck Pal says:

      Drones U.S. and NATO use but pilotless jets and self driving tanks is not available in market

    • Avatar Galunggong says:

      Even the communist Chinese (who are rapidly increasing their military spending and growth) are investing heavily in aircraft carriers so they are not completely obsolete as yet. For example the Chinese think that they can use their two current carriers to shield the East Side of Taiwan from foreign intervention if the PLA ever invade Taiwan. This is key to their strategy. South Korea is also keenly aware of their strategic needs and if they think they need an aircraft carrier in their navy, they will pursue it.

    • Avatar Galunggong says:

      Very true. Especially with the rate the Chinese military is growing in offensive warfare capabilities. It is important for any other Asian countries who can, to arm themselves as much as possible just in case. Even though China professes to be peaceful now, one can never know how the future will develop. Best not to be left behind if a country can help it. Unfortunately Philippines is not so lucky as our President has been bowing to pressure from China and surrenduring our sovereignty to them in return for virtually nothing. Not even a guarantee that Philippines will never be invaded by PLA.

    • Avatar Galunggong says:

      It should be a good thing for South Korea to eventually have their own full autonomy over defense spending and not always rely on the Americans. After all South Korea is a sovereign country who faces at least one hostile neighbor. Even China who is somewhat friendly to South Korea right now, at least over economy, may one day become a threat with how fast their military is growing. All nations in Asia who can should be arming themselves just in case for the future. China may not threaten these countries now, but if things change who knows. Even Australia should be arming themselves rapidly just in case. The Americans may not be around forever in Asia.
