Would Beijing begin the deployment of an anti-missile detection system using captive balloons?

It now seems that this technology is ready to be deployed, according to Japanese defense analyst Saburo Tanaka, quoted by the site. The latter is based on a satellite photo of a new air base with an equally new runway of around 2000 meters, and displaying on its tarmac a reconnaissance balloon with all the characteristics of the 2015 project. similar…
