Highly Maneuverable Chinese Spaceplane Touches Down After 276 Days in Orbit - Craft Docked Several Times With Another Object - May Be Used as Weapon to Target US Satellites | The Gateway Pundit | by
Paul Serran



The space is turning into the next frontier for the high-end confrontations between nations. And in this new battlefield, the ability to target enemy satellites has become a big priority.

Recently, documents from the Discord Leak have shed light on this theme, and I wrote about it here on TGP. You can read more in Space War: Chinese Plan To Disrupt Enemy Satellites’ Comms in the Event of Conflict.

But this is far from pure speculation, but rather a reality that’s literally orbiting above our heads. Fears have been arising that the Chinese have developed a self-propelled, highly maneuverable Spaceplane that can be used to do precisely that.

The Drive reported:

Private space services company LeoLabs says its data shows a Chinese reusable space vehicle, believed to be a miniature spaceplane design, docked with or otherwise captured a separate object on multiple occasions during its recent 276-day-long stint in orbit. A highly maneuverable space vehicle with this kind of capability could be used to surveil, disrupt and outright attack an opponent’s space-based assets, as well as retrieve or otherwise interact with friendly ones.”

In a post from LeoLabs on Twitter:

Quote
“Since its launch on 4 August 2022, we observed multiple large maneuvers raising the object’s altitude — as well as repeated deployments, formation flying, and docking of a sub-satellite Object J (NORAD ID 54218).”

 :pondering: I wonder how exact a duplicate the chicom craft is of our X37-B?

  • Ah, the air is so much fresher here...

Hunter probably copied the specs from the garage docs and faxed them.
