Beijing Simulates Attack on the US Base
Communist China's Army has published on Monday night, a video-simulation of the heavy bomber attacking US military base on Guam.
The video posted by the Chinese Air Force on its official WeChat account showed a simulated bomber attacking a US military base in Guam.
The footage is a combination of the real images and 3D animation showing the entire attack process of the H-6K bomber.
The Chinese air force's two minute and 15 second video, set to solemn, dramatic music like a trailer for a Hollywood movie, shows H-6 bombers taking off from a desert base.
The video was titled "The god of war H-6K goes on the attack!"
Halfway through, a pilot pressed a button and loosed a missile at an unnamed seaside runway.
The missile homes in on the runway, a satellite image of which was shown that looks exactly like the layout of Andersen, though it is not named.
The music suddenly stopped as images of the ground shaking appeared, following by aerial views of an explosion.
"We are the defenders of the motherland's aerial security; we have the confidence and ability to always defend the security of the motherland's skies," the Chinese military's account owner wrote in a brief description for the video.
In the original video, the target was the US military base in Guam, as the satellite photo indicated.
Few hours after the original publication, the owner of the account removed the satellite imagery of the base. Nevertheless, the other footage in the video still suggested that the target was a US military base in Guam.
The video caught immediate international attention as it marks the first time the People's Liberation Army of China has shown visuals aimed at a US military facility.
