This is our orbital space plane (X-378) -- it has already spent more than a year in orbit.

Like the huge shuttle it can be launched and recovered and then relaunched. By comparison it is dirt cheap to build and use.

The Chinese are progressing on their anti-satellite capability. We need our satellites not only for war but for advancement of our countries infrastructure.

It does not take a huge leap of any thinking persons reasoning to envision a fleet of these new space vehicles being manned and armed, ready to take on any reasonable threat.

Perhaps we already are ?.....................................

Just more information and follow up.

"(Xinhua) 19:39, December 27, 2016

China aims to become a space power, according to a white paper on the nation's space activities issued on Tuesday.

The white paper, titled "China's Space Activities in 2016," was the fourth white paper on the country's space activities issued by the State Council Information Office, following the previous three in 2000, 2006 and 2011.

"The white paper sets out our vision of China as a space power, independently researching, innovating, discovering and training specialist personnel," said Wu Yanhua, deputy chief of the China National Space Administration at a press conference.

China's space industry took off 60 years ago and April 24 was declared National Space Day in 2016 as a focus for pioneering spirit and enthusiasm for innovation, Wu said."
