Posted by: badanov

It looks like the Chinese military buildup is ongoing, as well as news.

Pretty scary since the article says:

Among the failures highlighted in the study are:
•China's development of a new long-range cruise missile.
•The deployment of a new warship equipped with a stolen Chinese version of the U.S. Aegis battle management technology.
•Deployment of a new attack submarine known as the Yuan class that was missed by U.S. intelligence until photos of the submarine appeared on the Internet.
•Development of precision-guided munitions, including new air-to-ground missiles and new, more accurate warheads.
•China's development of surface-to-surface missiles for targeting U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups.
•The importation of advanced weaponry, including Russian submarines, warships and fighter-bombers.

It appears that was has been "missed" was the major naval builup by the Chinese Navy.

More on this later, as we post material on Chinese naval doctrine, especially its submarine forces.

If you have something to add, Fire Away!
