    a very interesting article to digest

    Why Doesn’t China Deploy Fighter Jets to the Spratly Islands?


    While the video was designed to demonstrate China’s growing power projection capabilities, one expert noted that it may have inadvertently revealed the PLAAF’s weaknesses. The Flankers were either lightly armed or unarmed, and the use of two Il-78s would have consumed two-thirds of the air force’s heavy tanker fleet. It suggests that in a conflict over the South China Sea the PLAAF would not be able to send large numbers of aircraft into the battle space and sustain them.
    The mission begs an important question: Why didn’t the SU-30s land and refuel on Subi Reef? Surely one of the main purposes of the artificial islands is to enable China to project air power into the South China Sea to assert its territorial and jurisdictional claims, including the possibility of establishing an Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) over the Spratlys?

    There are many reasons I can think of.

    1. I don't think China has the capability yet to deplay a bigger unit there.
    2. The presence of US ships are deterring them
    3. Those islands are primarily for Fishing Vessel support.

    Philippine Daily Inquirer / 04:09 AM August 19, 2020

    The two Chinese research vessels seen in the vicinity of Recto Bank in the West Philippine Sea since early this month have left, according to the Philippine Navy chief, Vice Adm. Giovanni Bacordo. The Xiang Yang Hong 14 and Haiyan Dizhi Hao 12 had no permission from the Philippine government — and therefore no business — to be in the area. Yet they stayed there for at least a week, per Bacordo, unmindful of repercussions in PH-China relations.

    Bacordo said the unauthorized presence of the Chinese vessels constituted grounds for the filing of a diplomatic protest. Quite right. Recto Bank, an underwater reef formation believed to hold large reserves of oil and natural gas, belongs to the Philippines. The Chinese vessels, supposedly alternating in their activity and moving at a speed of three knots (about 5.5 kilometers) per hour, appeared to have been engaged in a survey of the area, once more illustrating China’s continuing aggression in the West Philippine Sea.
