According to PLA Daily’s report today, China launched its fully homegrown 10,000-ton class destroyer at Jiangnan Shipyard, Shanghai.

The new warship has entirely been made by China independently. It is a large warship with a series of key technologies armed with new-type air defense, missile defense, anti-ship and anti-submarine weapons. It is very sensitive in information collection and has strong air- and missile-defense and sea strike capabilities.

The launch will be followed by equipment fine-tuning and navigation tests.

    New Delhi’s official launch of its half completed aircraft carrier yeas ago was a joke for all the world to see. Until today, we hear nothing more of it. Such ego. Such fools.

    New Delhi’s far right imperialist nationalists are asking to be nuked one of these days. They will cross the line soon, the way they crossed the line 1962

    Hope China can quickly make this seaworthy and commission it soon to be deployed to the Indian Ocean to escort Chinese subs. Nasty Indian creatures now buying US drones to track Chinese subs. Park this destroyer semi permanently in the Indian Ocean in the Bay of Bengal to drive the Indians berserk. FON exercise right in her frontyard to agitate countries, states there to Secede from India. China’s best strategy is to put Fear into Indian states in the South, Punjab, West Bengal to get them to think about seceding from India. The Indian devil is the Hindustani North, especially New Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and North Western states that should be separated from the rest of India.

      Be careful about what you are proposing. The Indians already have added modern P-8’s to their ocean surveillance network and whispers are that they will add F-35’s to their carrier fleet. Remember: the Indian navy is no stranger to V/STOL aircraft at sea. The F-35 would greatly enhance their ability to contain the PLAN.

      India regards the Indian Ocean as their area of operations, much like China regards the South China Sea as their area of operations.

        China is not worry since the new destroyer is equipped with the latest anti-cargo ship defenses.

          Every Chinese ships, warships and civilians are equipped with anti-cargo ship defense. It’s not the latest actually, it’s decades old. It is called the AIS. But American ships are known for their attitudes. They would even order lighthouse to stay out of their way. Heard what USS Abraham Lincoln ordered a Canadian lighthouse to do? ‘Move, or we will engage counter-measure to protect this vessel’.

        Yeah, keep whispering. The Indian has been whispering since they hade their butt kicked by a bunch of, as the Indian own description, Chinese PLA peasant infantry in 1962. And the Indian army was one of the most modern army in the world in 1962. So, go ahead. Enhance their capability. The most they can do is to beat their weaker Pakistan neighbor, or invade tiny countries like Sikkim. The Indian would not even dare to invade Nepal and Bhutan because these tiny countries are under the protection of China. Yes. China!! The American-supposed ‘imperialistic’ China does protect its neighbors from ‘big dog’s’ imperialistic behaviours. I bet it’s a new lesson for the American who invaded Mexico to grab California and Puerto Rico to make it American ‘Territory’.
        The type 055 is just a warship, it’s only comparable to American tin-can Arleigh Burke or the useless-proven Zumwaltz. It is not a mighty warship that can fly. The Korean has bigger destroyer, The King Sejong. What the American spooked about? I remember when China bought the first Sovremennii, the American was spooked. Then they built the 052s, the American spooked, then the Yuan submarines, the American spooked again, then the J-20, the American spooked again, then the aircraft carrier, the American spooked. American is an easily spooked people, after all. What is so menacing about the P8? It is a surveillance craft. The Chinese buzzes them a lot in the East China Sea, and what do the P8 does? Taking photo then complain. So scary. And again, the F-35? With radar signature that big, it is enough to deploy Russian Buk. What’s the big deal about the ‘new’ F-135 engines? Now that China successfully build WS-15 engine, Pratts and Whitney is ‘certain’ that they can ‘successfully’ build F-135 engines worthy of the F-135 with more money. It sounds like they plan to hack WS-15 from China, or perhaps they are making progress in poaching WS-15 engineers? Those traitors are better be careful. China has been executing CIA spies and operatives. Traitors would suffer the same fate.

        China Do Not regard the SCS as her area of operations. China Need Enough Reaction Time to keep US and Japanese subs and aircraft out of Hainan to be able to defend herself. Meanwhile India with her psychotic behavior go all the way to Seychelles to look for Chinese subs, of course with US egging her to do so. Type 55 is needed to Fully Escort Chinese subs and other ships to ensure no interference by adventurous Indians.

        By being able to See Indian and US subs lurking nearby, they will be warned to keep further away. Type 55 will probably have a superconducting Magnetic Anomaly Detector to help locate enemy subs much further away. The technology is secret which US have advantage. China will probably have this on Type 55 as well.

        Having F35 is of no use if you don’t have control over its manufacture and need to rely on America for service maintenance. Ask Saudi Arabia. India should know because they rely on Russia for all maintenence and re-supply of its Russian military procurements.
        India is not a party of recipient of F35 because of its military co-operation with Russia. Only close American allies with unfetered access by American personelle can have F35. Everyone knows F35 still have flaws and not a match with older F16 let alone the Chinese J20.

          Obviously the P-8 deal between the United States and India is going well so why wouldn’t a F-35 deal go well too? Plus since the Japan is licensed to manufacture the F-35 a deal for F-35s manufactured in Japan and then exported to India could happen as well.

          You should remember that Japan and India have become quite cozy and friendly lately as they face a common enemy: China.

          America, Japan and India plan to conduct joint naval exercises (Operation Malabar) in the Bay of Bengal this July. These drills will be more complex than all previous editions.

          China has been suspicious of the trilateral engagement and has even lodged protests over Japan’s participation. Beijing is expected to closely monitor the exercise at a time when the Chinese navy is attempting to expand its footprint in the Indian Ocean region.

          China sees this new activity as an attempt to interdict its vital lifelines to Africa and the middle east.

            So it is Bay of Bengal now? Not SCS anymore? Not East China Sea anymore? Whoaa, Chinese lakes is getting bigger and bigger. No wonder America is getting squished to a pool. Didn’t you say ‘be careful not to anger the Japs’? Now it’s the Indian? Next time you’d add what? British? French? Saudi? ISIS? Klux Klux Klan? You should take a look at The Battle of Yeungnaung Maw in the WWII, where the 40000 heavily-armed British Indian soldiers were cut down by 8000 Japs. The Japs didn’t bother to use gun anymore, they were having fun with their katana swords, cutting down running Indian soldiers, and these were the best of the British empire and they ditched British artillery, trucks, ammunition to run. And who saved the Indian? Chinese General Sun Liren and his 800 men, charging the Japs with only Chinese poled-sabre dadao. It was Japanese katana vs Chinese dadao 10 to 1. The Japs were running in terror just like the Indian they were chasing. The British was so impressed that they gave Sun Liren The Order of The British Empire Medal. 20 years later, it was the the poorly-equipped Chinese soldiers who chased the heavily-armed Indian soldiers in 1962. The Indian throw aside their weapons and their uniforms to avoid getting recognized by their pursuing enemies. So, Indian, Japs and America. Should be interesting. Three enemies who had run scared from the Chinese before. Surely the American wants the Indian to buy the P8 and the F-35. In the event of conflict with China, the Indian will ditch everything, the P8, the F-35, anything, just like always. And the American would blame ‘human error’ for the loss of their crap equipments and make the Indian to buy new ones.

        How is Indian Ocean be regarded as India’s area of operation? They be lucky to even sail FONOP in a Bay of Bengal. No country on earth’s navy is strong enough to control an ocean not least the puny Indian navy. Australian navy has more control of Indian Ocean than India. The MH370 flight suspected loss over the Indian Ocean the rescue mission was lead by Australia followed by China in that part of the world, India not vene been mentioned. The rescue mission over the SCS was lead by China.
