China's new frigate delivered to PLA Navy

BEIJING, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- China's first Type 056 stealth frigate was delivered to the Chinese People's Liberation Army Navy (PLA Navy) in Shanghai on Monday afternoon.

The new generation of frigate, which is about to be put into service on a large scale, features good stealth performance and electromagnetic compatibility, according to a report released Tuesday by the official PLA Daily.

The new frigate requires only one-third of the crew needed by its predecessor, the Type 053, and it is expected to be deployed primarily for escort missions and anti-submarine operations, said the report.

The article said the delivery marked the beginning of a systematic upgrade of the navy's equipment and defense.

The new type will enhance the navy's capabilities in safeguarding national security, territorial integrity, marine sovereignty and marine interests, it added.

A) Why does it seem like 1936 again?
B) Why do I think it won’t end as well for us this time?

A dabbler in stealth, but I see little in LO tech involved here. The “hello kitty” or whatever graphics are interesting...........

This weekend I pinned down exactly where my father was in the very moment when Pearl Harbor was attacked, he was in Borneo.

The chinese are not like the nazis.

for germany to achieve world domination, it had to attack and expand.

for china to do so, it needs to forge alliances with russia, india, and japan; take over most of africa for the resources and watch the west wither and decline.

There will be no war unless the western powers start it first.

Kinda sucks to think we’re funding it by shopping at Walmart as we make cuts to our military.

The rise of 3D printing and desktop assemblers will destroy much of China’s industry.

What good is an enormous population of low-wage workers when the whole world starts making their stuff at home?

It’s not just Wal-Mart. Look at all the stuff in your house and see how much of it is made in Red China. You didn’t get all those items at Wal-Mart, did you?

The last time the antagonists had to cross an ocean to wreak havoc on the country. This time they can just take a bus.

Most of the world still has VCRs with clocks blinking 00:00.

I seriously doubt most people can design or produce anything useful with 3D printers.

Target, Costco, and Sears etc. don’t buy from the same manufacturers as the non-union, pro-gun store?

If we can keep drilling for shale oil and gas, gasify coal, find more conventional fuels and find some more rare earth minerals we could tell the Chinese to keep their crap. Who would they sell to then? I propose we make the Philippines the 51st state (they were once a US territory) just to watch the Chinese go nuts.

Are you referencing the Mexicans in that statement, or did I not understand it?

I believe my late father was 16 and in the Civilian Conservation Corps building roads and campgrounds in Missouri. Later he fought in the Pacific.

Why does it look like the bailing pumps are going full blast? Do all ships do that or does this thing leak like a sieve?

Ahhh, makes sense. That’s got one heck of an engine room...3/4 the length of the ship.

The biggest exhaust is under the stack and probably the main engine.

The rest appear to be for other ship’s systems - and at least a couple for bilge water :-).
