The US Navy has expressed concerns in a new report over China’s new submarines armed with nuclear missiles which are capable of hitting the US states of Alaska and Hawaii.

According to a recent report by the US Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) is to deploy Jin-class nuclear ballistic missile submarines which will begin to patrol the northern Pacific Ocean this year.

“With a range in excess of 4000 [nautical miles], the JL-2 submarine launched ballistic missile (SLBM), will enable the JIN to strike Hawaii, Alaska and possibly western portions of CONUS from East Asian waters,” said ONI Senior Intelligence Officer Jesse Karotkin in a written testimony to the US China Economic and Security Review Commission in late January.

The new Jin-class Type 94 submarines are a developmental leap from China’s older Type 92 Xia-class submarines and have been developed as part of Beijing’s efforts to create a deterrent patrol.

“At the dawn of the 21st Century, the People’s Liberation Army Navy remained a largely littoral force. Though China’s maritime interests were rapidly changing, the vast majority of its naval platforms offered very limited capability and endurance, particularly in blue water. Over the past 15 years the PLAN has carried out an ambitious modernization effort, resulting in a more technologically advanced and flexible force,” said Karotkin in his report.

Earlier this week, Stars and Stripes also reported that the US Navy is worried because “China appears to be preparing to challenge US supremacy by accelerating the construction of a second aircraft carrier.”

According to US officials, China is building a “blue-water navy” capable of sustained operations across oceans and projecting power far from home.

China is considering the Pentagon’s focus on the “pivot” to the Asia-Pacific as a strategy to counter China’s increasing global influence and says US militarism in the region could endanger peace.

So what is the problem? US submarines are also capable of attacking China and Russia. I don't hear or see the Chinese and Russians crying and whining about it..and the last time i checked... The Chinese is the only ones that have successfully tested a Hupersonic missile carrier... looks like they are way ahead of the americans....way way ahead

Ning, you have to have made a mistake. The reaches of Hawaii and Alaska
requires Udon Dongs which are a product of Kim's Korea. Far as I am aware, we Chinese just
doesn't quite have such capabilities yet therefore a credit not quite due us.

Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?
