Johnson Reef

Since China took control of Johnson Reef from Vietnam after a clash in 1988, the site has hosted a lone communications platform. Since March 2012, however, the reef has been expanded by 3.95 square kilometers following a major land reclamation campaign. Chinese construction crews have erected radar facilities, communications equipment, anti-aircraft weapons, and a helipad.
