U.S SENDS B1B TO SOUTH CHINA SEA, HOW POWERFUL IS IT?


U.S has sent two. B-1B bombers in South China Sea escorted by
American and South Korean jet fighter. The ‘Freedom of Navigation’ exercise included
practicing attack capabilities at a training range. In this video, Defense Updates analyzes the
capabilities of B1B and explains why China should be afraid of it? Lets get started. China has a long history of maritime disputes
with its South China Sea neighbors. It claims almost all of the South China Sea,
including islands more than 800 miles (~1300 km) from the Chinese mainland, despite objections
from its neighbors. Beijing has also created artificial islands
in the area, outfitting some of them with military features. According to the US, China has reclaimed more
than 3,000 acres in the Spratly Islands since 2014. China’s sweeping claims of sovereignty over
the sea have provoked competing claimants Malaysia, Vietnam, Brunei, Taiwan, Indonesia,
and the Philippines. Non-claimants like USA, India, Australia & Japan
want the South China Sea to remain as international waters with freedom of navigation, whereas
China want to control this major trade way .It is a very important sea route with 5 trillion
$ in trade, half of global merchant shipping and 1/2 of world’s oil shipment pass through
it. The sea also has alleged 11 billion barrels
of untapped oil and 190 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. The B-1 Lancer is a supersonic variable-sweep
wing, heavy bomber used by the United States Air Force (USAF). It is commonly called the “Bone”. It is one of three strategic bombers in the
USAF fleet as of 2017, the other two being the B-2 Spirit “Stealth Bomber”, and the B-52
Stratofortress. U.S has 100 of these. The B-1A was originally designed during the
1970s as a high-altitude, Mach 2.0-capable nuclear bomber. However, President Jimmy Carter cancelled
the program on June 30, 1977, in favor of air launched cruise missiles carried onboard
the B-52, intercontinental ballistic missiles and what eventually became the Northrop Grumman
B-2 Spirit stealth bomber. This was done after it became apparent that
penetrating Soviet airspace at high altitudes in a conventional non-stealthy aircraft was
likely a suicidal endeavor. President Ronald Reagan eventually revived
the Lancer program on Oct. 2, 1981, however the new B-1B was optimized for low-level penetration. Additionally, the aircraft was modified with
new engine air intakes and other upgrades to reduce its radar cross-section. The resultant B-1B aircraft no longer possessed
Mach 2 capability—topping out at roughly Mach 1.25—but had much better survivability
because of stealthier profile. Most airplane wing designs are tradeoffs. Wings are set for low speed stability or high-speed
performance, or some middle point. But even with flap systems and leading edge
slats, fixed wings are compromises. A multi-role aircraft needs more flexibility. Having variability in the wing configuration
has huge advantages in making a single aircraft adept at multiple missions. This not only saves the military (and you
the taxpayer) money, it also can create an aircraft that is inherently safer. The pilot can adapt the aircraft to whatever
flight condition instead of having to operate at the ragged edge of stability at times. The B-1 is a classic example of variable wing
technology. The wings at low altitude/low speed are almost
perpendicular to the body of the airplane, providing maximum lift. Combine this with the B-1’s blended semi-lifting
body fuselage, the machine preforms decently in low-speed. As the aircraft accelerates and climbs, each
wing can be pivoted behind. The aircraft now has almost a delta wing,
excellent for high altitude and high-speed operations. B1B has an excellent range of Range: 5,900
mi or 9,400 km. It has a Service ceiling of 60,000 ft.
B1B has a massive payload of 125,000 lb (56,700 kg) internal and external ordnance combined. It has 6 external hardpoints for 50,000 pounds
(23,000 kg) of ordnance and 3 internal bomb bays for 75,000 pounds (34,000 kg) of ordnance. Depending on mission the ammunition can consists
of following: 84× Mk-82 Air inflatable retarder (AIR) general
purpose (GP) bombs 81× Mk-82 low drag general purpose (LDGP)
bombs 84× Mk-62 Quickstrike sea mines
24× Mk-84 general-purpose bombs 24× Mk-65 naval mines
30× CBU-87/89/CBU-97 Cluster Bomb Units (CBU) 30× CBU-103/104/105 Wind Corrected Munitions
Dispenser (WCMD) 24× GBU-31 JDAM GPS guided bombs (Mk-84 GP
or BLU-109 warhead) 15× GBU-38 JDAM GPS guided bombs (Mk-82 GP
warhead) 48× GBU-38 JDAM (using rotary launcher mounted
multiple ejector racks) 48× GBU-54 Laser JDAM (using rotary launcher
mounted multiple ejector racks) 96× or 144× GBU-39 Small Diameter Bomb GPS
guided bombs 24× AGM-154 Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW)
24× AGM-158 Joint Air to Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) The excellent versatility of the ammunition
it carries, makes it capable of carrying out carpet-bombing of large area as well precision
strikes on high value targets. China’s increasingly assertive actions in
the region – which include placing sophisticated weapons systems on artificial islands – coupled
with growing domestic nationalism risks setting the US and China on “a dangerous collision
course”. The Trump administration’s decision to launch
Freedom of Navigation operations comes as he attempts to seek China’s cooperation in
reigning in North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs, showing his intent of not backing
down in South China Sea. Earlier James Mattis, on a two-day visit to
Japan, affirmed that Senkakus islands in South China Sea, which are controlled by Japan but
also claimed by China, fell within the scope of the Japan-US security treaty, under which
Washington is obliged to defend all areas under Japanese administrative control. US has also signed an important agreement
with India. The Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement
(LEMOA) between US & India allows them to use each other’s land, air and naval bases
for repair and resupply. US, Japan and Indian are participating in
Malabar naval exercise with eye on China. It is clear from the developments that China
is increasing getting isolated due to its aggressive posturing.

  • China's military is a huge joke, saturated with corruption and overinflated numbers due to volunteer college students and older, rebuilt Soviet equipment. Building islands in International waters (despite World Court rulings), trying to "act" as a Superpower, despite World Court rulings. Not counting the coastline industrial areas, the majority of China is still 3rd world, very rural and relieving themselves in dirt ditches and focused on getting enough to eat every day. Look at the Shanghai Composite… it's declining every day… the Chinese economy is in serious trouble. Fool yourself all you want Chinese fans, China is a paper tiger, nothing more.

  • Meanwhile in China everybody is just like 😴😴😴😴😴.

    China has enough missiles to take down this funny looking model plane

    All ships & planes @ the s. China Sea are already locked.

  • Yeeah, Yeeah YEAH!!! ALL THAT SHIT WON'T WORK WHEN THE LORD SENDS HIS TRUE ARMY OF CHAROITS OF WORLDWINDS BY THE MILLIONS…. THEN ALL OF THE SO-CALLED WORLD LEADERS SHIT WILL MELT RIGHT BEFORE THERE EYES LMAO AT THESE GOONS 😂😂😂😂😂👏👏👏👏 Dumb-Asses Because He's Coming SO GET READY 😂 WWIII

  • For those who are evil will be destroyed by US
    President Trump and the world's should call for a total economic boycott of red evil China …..
    "We must take strong defensive actions to protect America's leadership in technology and innovation against the unprecedented threat posed by China's theft of our intellectual property, the forced transfer of American technology and its cyber attacks on our computer networks,"
    "These tariffs are essential to preventing further unfair transfers of American technology and intellectual property to red China,"

  • Don't let China and/or Russia prepare for war against any state. DO the first move to cripple their dream of eliminating the US and its allies to dominate as world power. They should NEVER prevail. GO AHEAD PRES. TRUMP Erase them from the face of our mother earth to stop them from their dream of world conquest to overcome AMERICA AND ITS ALLIES (THE PHILIPPINES). ONWARD TO VICTORY. GOD BLESS AMERICA, LAND OF THE BRAVE!!!

  • Really!?, China is afraid of an aging bomber that has been around since the late 70's. It is easier to shoot it down why would China be afraid of it. China has a lot newer fighter who can shoot down the B-1 bomber. The US is delusional . The US should do this make every aircraft carry nuclear weapons and ships and detonate it all at the same time then Asia will be gone and problem solved. Defense Updates has a tendency to exaggerate any US weapons. China would look at the B-1 and would laugh. The US can't send anything newer. Hey, America can you send me something newer not an aircraft that belongs in the museum.

  • vgerahin nyo president trump ang china para matigil na yong kanilang pananakop paraawa mo president trump gerahin nyo na ang china pagtulongan nyo ng kaalyado

  • If China still doesn't bowed to America demands more warships are coming, more lethal nuclear warship and jet fighters, not even the possibility of www 3 with China will stop America aggressive intimidation and provocation. Be prepare for war… 3RD WWW…

  • why is it that the rest of the world does not know about what is going on down there. I think that I should run straight to the other states in the south and tell them that these cock sucking Europeans are being true to their jungle side and all hell is gonna break loose and we had better be ready to defend ourselves and the republic. because I believe that they are going to run back to Europe. after they have robbed the southern end of the Mahgribb. And that is the reason that all of those ships are here to hall off the loot.makes sence now think about it for a second. the fracking in north Dakota and that area.They are gonna poison the water and set off dirty bombs to kill off the people. first every one in jail. are as good as dead.it has been told to me already about how that will be did. claims that they are all bad people but they are not. and their is more. but I have to to call my family and worn them.

  • I will check the record that they have at the temple and being the Moor's gave the Manchurian people their charter to do business and commerce within the specific boundaries that have been agreed to. thousands of years ago. and I will get it back to you. or does the info go to the corporation the President (Trump)or send it directly to China.

  • So what if they made a few changes on the bone like add more jet engines for more speed put some missiles on it and stronger radar detectors or just make it a bigger F22 sort of speak lol I do for some reason feel like its not bad of an idea to put missiles on the outer body of the bone not the wings just around the body

  • China will declared the airplane and vessel identification zone in the SCS like the ECS.Any crashed ,the personnel on the airplanes or vessels will be taken prisoner like the P-8 in a island off Hainan.

  • Think 24 JASSMs or 24 LRASMs per B-1. There are enough B-1s to take down the Chinese Fleet and the fake South China Sea Islands, with US attack submarines. No aircraft carriers required.

  • How stupid of America, they cannot compete with China, they just cannot accept China overtaking them as No one economy in the world. just do not drag Australia into your destruction,

  • 放500解放军跳伞兵在空中。手提地空导弹 MANPADS 或者 MPADS.打他妈. B1B 或者 航母 千孔万洞。好像密蜂巢。不要脸的贱贼。。。拿贸易戰来打劫金钱做武器装备再来打我国。。。这一场戰是不可避免。早打好过给他们钱。他们可以弄更好的武器来浸犯我国。。。

  • Say no to products "Made in China" if only world needs to start boycotting products made in China then China would not be claiming territories that is not theirs to claim. Say no to made in china.

  • The problem with all these programs ,is none of these organization produced any documents from a responsible gov't sourse regarding these issues. Yeah, there are very convincing videos, you need more ! Other wise ,it's all should be all Hocus Shitus to all of you. With modern technology ,they can manufacture fake movies, as the US leader is doing quite well all by himself !

  • No one wins in this….Negotiate NOT obliterate yourselves….The Chinese people don't deserve this nor do any other people with half a brain deserve this…..

  • Jesus Christ people the USA send what to China or China is scare of what they don't have anything to be afraid of the USA and China are butt buddy's stop making fake videos with fake voices people is not stupid…

  • Do not initiate War! Why? That's exactly what satan wants you to do. Do you not see what is developing? Your own personal judgement day will come and we all know this. Will you be guilty of willfully assisting satan in destroying the World?

  • It doesn't matter how good is B1B or China super supersonic. In WW3 all human will be wiped out or suffer a very slow accruciating death.

  • Trump will do to China what Reagan did to the former Soviet Union! He'll bankrupt China into trying to stay up with the US militarily! That's why China wants it's greedy paws on the SCS's oil and gas, that's the only way they can compete financially! The world will not allow it to happen

  • USA has black project war equipment generations more advanced than this plane, China and Russia both know this fact and that is what both country's fear.

  • If China dog terrorists attack American carrier and murder 10000 man all American .b1 fighters plan carrier nuclear missiles will retaliation China dog terrorists with nuclear missiles barbeque all Chinese dog terrorists

  • US can send anything to the South China Sea but would never dare to start a war with China that for certain. Because US will be defeated ,this time be much worse than the north Korean war 60 years ago!!

  • China is not being isolated"due to its aggressive posturing", it is being isolated because the USA wants to be world hegemon. China's rise and increasing power on all fronts soft power and hard power means that the USA will not be able to make China or it's allies due Washington's bidding. America wants to slow down China's rise as much as possible.

  • CHINA IS GREEDY., AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE THEY WANT TO CONTROL THE WHOLE WORLD AND THANKS FOR THE UNITED STATES IN THEIR ALLIES FOR THE BIG HELP

  • there has been a massive build up military assets on south Korea bases that American military operate.the planes and tanks alone is a vulgar display of power.there is a full house.there is enough military assets to completely destroy north Korea China and any other countries that may be dumb enough to mistake the capabilities they claim to have to be superior over American military.chinese are to dumb to invent anything.thats why these idiots steal all technology they currently copy.

  • It's an easy problem to Fixx ! Wipe China off the map… Who the fuck is gonna miss a billion Chinese ? Not me….🇺🇸🇬🇧🇦🇺🇫🇷🇩🇪🇯🇵🇰🇷 These allies can take care of the problem lol…

  • Nice video. Only negative comment…Rehearse a bit more before recording, sounds very choppy and the voice… I thinks it's an accurate 7.5. Keep it up!

  • ជយោសូមអបអរសាទរខ្ញុំចង់ឃើញយូរហើយ។

  • I dont think its good enough!The chinese army could erase us from the surface of the earth if they really want!

  • As per request to comment, to help you grow and or make requests for video subject. The 9 dash line looks a lot more like a trade route than border. Look into it and get it out here

  • As long as ALLIES remain PASSIVE China will continue INVADING COUNTRIES. WAKE UP AND UNITE AGAINST CHINA!

  • 真好,真真好啊。美國加油。美國啊,別怕中國共產黨的PLA。

  • DONT EVER THINK CHINA WILL GIVE YOU A FREE LUNCH.
    PLEASE REMEMBER THE WORD " CATASTROPHY" IF WAR EVER BREAKS OUT.
    NOW CHINA IS PRACTISING PATIENCE AND TOLERATION.
    DONT TAKE IT AS A WEAKNESS IT WILL BE YOUR GRAVEST MISTAKE.
