The Chinese PLA’s Confidential “Fast Boat Plan”

Guangming Daily, citing a report from Taiwan Defense Magazine, revealed a Chinese PLA combat plan — the Fast Boat Plan. The plan is about how the Chinese can quickly fill a void in their future combat in case a satellite of theirs is destroyed. The plan includes two parts: one is to use mobile launchers with the PLA’s Dongfeng 21 and Dongfeng 31 missile carriers, carried by motor vehicles. The other is that, within one hour, they can quickly complete a satellite installation and then launch it into space. [Therefore], they can quickly fill the gap in the PLA’s detection, positioning, and other functions in case their satellite is destroyed.
