China tested ballistic missile against moving ship

Yomiuri front-paged a report saying that it has learned from a source with knowledge of the Chinese military that during an anti-ship ballistic missile test conducted in the South China Sea in August 2020, the Chinese military used a moving ship as a target. The paper wrote that Adm. Philip Davidson, Commander of U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, acknowledged this at an online security forum held in November last year. The paper wrote that China’s military modernization may pose a threat to the U.S. military, which operates aircraft carriers in waters near China, because there are reports that two “aircraft carrier killer” missiles successfully hit the moving ship during the test.
