Su-30MKK: Designing an Elite Fighter to Protect Chinese Coasts and the Beginning of Chinese Maritime A2AD

The end of the Cold War and collapse of the Soviet Union saw tensions between the Western Bloc and the People’s Republic of China escalate, and a potential conflict with the Western Bloc and particularly the United States thus emerged as the primary focus of Chinese defence planning. The U.S. bombing of the Chinese embassy in Yugoslavia, reports of Western support for anti government riots which killed several PLA soldiers in 1989, and U.S. threats of war against North Korea, all led the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) leadership to escalate preparations for the possibility of U.S. military action in northeast Asia.
