Those ships all appear to be solid designs and well thought out. The only thing is, those ships would be considered screens in the American Navy.

Until they deploy ships capable of true power projection (aircraft carriers) the Chinese Navy will be a regional threat at best. That said, the Chinese are believed to be training crews on the carrier Varyag which was purchased from the Ukrainians.

Interior




12 - Kilo-class

These are the spearhead of chinas submarine force. Very potent and quiet with its Klub-S missile system. Might be fitted with AIP in the future, adding alot more capability for only a little bit more money. There are 2 Kilo 877EKM which are the downgraded export variants, 2 further improved 636 variants which are quietened Kilo submarines while china had just finishing recieving 8 more further imporved 636M submarines

3 - Yuan-class
There is apparantly three of these. One of them is fitted with AIP and denoted with A for a improved variant. These submarines might become the fore front of chinas submarine force in the coming years, compementing the Kilo force

8 ~ Type 033 Romeo-class
18 - Type 035 Ming-class
There are 18 of these submarines in service. Not very modern, but have been upgrade in recent years

First sign of an insecure American. What you should be worried about is the banker who holds the American financial market with a noose

Beggers can't be choosers. If you can only afford to buy cheap products its your prerogative, you get what you pay for. China makes cheap products for the finacially challenged like yourself and they also make the majority of the worlds high tech equipment

Such a tiny, small navy for such a large country. But, than again, I am sure its being built for the specific reason to invade Taiwan. China is maybe entering the top ten, but they have a long way to go to catch up with the US, UK, France and even Russia. Not to mention their training, experience and equipment is below average. But thanks for the update!

1 - Type 071 Landing Platform Dock

4 X AK-630, 6-barrel 30mm, 3,000rds/min combined to 2km





1 - Type 920 Hospital Ship


The Type 920 hospital ship could provide a total of about 600 beds as well as other medical treatment facilities. The ship has a single-spot flight deck and a hanger at stern to support 1~2 medium size helicopters such as Z-8 or Ka-28. This enables casualties to be directly airlifted from war zone to the ship.

Yeah my original opinion still holds true these boats are the equivalent of the American tourist cruise boats with a few machine guns strapped to the top. Actually I'm going to go ahead right now and say that the cruise boats are bigger, better, and more technological.

The submarine in the photos is also extremely small, possibly old American technology from the 80's.

I accidentally posted this in your other forum so here it goes again...

What's up with the wicked ugly camo on those blue and white boats? They look like targets for the US military.

They are only targets if the US is capable of attacking them

Have you ever heard of the Star-Wars defense system? Never mind.

If they tried to make it to the US it is my bet that 3 out of 4 would break down before completing the trip.
