The time of peace in this world is always a minority, and the time of war is always a majority. Since World War II, there have always been large and small wars between countries. China wanted to develop peacefully, but Vietnam was too rampant. With the support of the Soviet Union behind it, it began to threaten itself as the third largest military power in the world. It even began to harass our borders and insult our territorial dignity. It was intolerable and unbearable, so our country launched a counterattack against Vietnam on February 17, 1979.
We must know that when the United States waged a war against Vietnam, it was still China's help and support. Without China's support, Vietnam would be defeated. As a result, Vietnam fluttered after defeating the United States and felt that it was very strong. Not only did it not show its gratitude to China, it also began to provoke China. And they rely on the military equipment left by the United States in Vietnam. This is a very naive idea, because a country's military strength is not simply weapons and equipment. China launched a counterattack against Vietnam in self-defense, which enabled them to understand this truth, and also taught this evil neighbor who did not know what to do.
After the start of the counterattack against Vietnam, the Chinese army marched at an extremely high speed and efficiency. In just 28 days, the Vietnamese army was defeated on the front, demonstrating the might of the great power. However, there is a strange thing about this war, that is, as the battlefield in the 1970s and 1980s, why did not China and Vietnam mobilize the air force during the entire battle? We must know that after the victory of the Anti-Japanese War, the Chinese Air Force began to prepare for development and became more mature. By the end of the 1970s, the Chinese air force also had a certain combat effectiveness. Why not use it in the counterattack against Vietnam? Moreover, why does Vietnam not use the air force?
Some people have analyzed that it should be that Vietnam does not have advanced fighter aircraft that can be used on the battlefield. Actually not. At that time, Vietnam had a batch of fighters, namely MiG-21, which was provided by the Soviet Union for military assistance. Although such a fighter cannot play a decisive role, it can still greatly affect the trend of the battlefield. However, there are no qualified pilots and technicians in the Vietnamese army, and this is their flaw. Similarly, in the face of some military equipment left by the U.S. military, they did not have cutting-edge talents capable of controlling such military equipment, so many sharp weapons are meaningless to them.
In addition, when Vietnam confronted the United States, China sent some military experts to provide guidance on Vietnam ’s space tactics. Therefore, Vietnam ’s most advanced space tactics are taught by China. Vietnam wants to use this method to hit China. Basically impossible. Experts analyzed that China's combat aircraft and tactics of Vietnam are very clear. If Vietnam wants to launch an attack in this way, our army will certainly be able to adopt a variety of defense methods and conduct a powerful counterattack.
And once the fighter is used, it is equivalent to deepening the attributes of war. At that time, after our army's all-round attack on the Vietnamese army, it will no longer be a "self-defense counterattack". As a result, our army is unwilling to see it, and the Vietnamese army is even more unwilling to see it. Another point is that the international situation at that time was relatively complicated. Our army launched a counterattack against Vietnam in self-defense, which mainly accounted for the advantage of public opinion. Among them, Vietnam suffered a loss and our army was in a self-defense war. China ’s counterattack against Vietnam ’s self-defense and the US ’s original Vietnam War were fundamentally different, and their purpose was so different that they would not use fighter planes to attack.
The last point is that our army is targeting Vietnam ’s military capabilities and terrain. The tactics it has formulated are quick and decisive battles. In Vietnam ’s special terrain, fighters can play a limited role and are not efficient. Our army was very confident in its ability to attack the fortifications. It defeated the Vietnamese army in just 28 days, and it did not give them a chance to bite back.
The editor thinks that the military strategy is "siege the city down, attack the heart up", can convince them, why use heavy weapons to destroy them all? Sometimes it is better to stay alive than to conquer completely. Not only can it demonstrate the power of the great powers, it can also reflect that our army is a division of righteousness and justice, and it will not be implemented in the international arena. This is our country's insistence on peace, and our country has never shown weakness. I wonder how do you think the knife analysis? Welcome to your opinions. Back to Sohu, see more
