apparantly these chinese subs can carry cruise missiles as well. i thought that it said ballistic before. anyway though, with the stealth of these
subs and with a good sized cruise missile it could pose a major threat couldn't it?
PLAN is always seeking to launch 3 kinds of missiles from Diesel Sub,
anit-sub toperdo, anti-ship missile and anti-air missile. I don't know how
far away can our anti-ship missile reach, but the new Kilo we bought
from Russia has the attack range of 250 kilometers. Anti-air missile is used
to pretect itself from the threat of P3 anit-sub plane. Also PLAN is very
interested in installing anti-radiation missile in the sub so that it can sit
deep in the sea but launch a sudden attack to enemy's AWACS.
I am surprised an expert like you never heard of this
I know our US friends know they are the best, but the problem is they
refuse to understand others. Sometimes Ignorance Can Be the Best
Brave-ness, so they just easily say "war", easily say "bomb" other.
Iraq war also reminds me Bush's ignorance and the brave-ness derived
from his ignorance.
