China’s new stealth UCAV drone GJ-11 to be used on aircraft carrier

China has developed a world-first stealth drone capable of flying for an extensive time and hitting targets with extreme precision, completely undetected. While China wowed and in some cases scared the world with recent displays of weaponry — including an intercontinental nuclear warhead and a bomber that can refuel in the air — the GJ-11 Sharp Sword drone is particularly worrying as Australia and even the US don’t yet have the capabilities to defend against it. The Sharp Sword is an unmanned combat air vehicle, or UCAV, similar to the…

Japan-based U.S. aircraft carrier in South China Sea ahead of key Chinese anniversary

In a move likely to stoke anger in Beijing just days before it marks a key anniversary, the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier is conducting operations in the disputed South China Sea, near China’s man-made islands, new images have shown. Satellite images posted to social media showed what appeared to be the Reagan and several unidentified warships, possibly U.S. and Chinese, sailing in the area northeast of the contested Spratly Island chain in the waterway on Saturday. Asked about the images, the Reagan’s location and if it was meant to…

Built in six months and new threat to Tiawan – China launches 35,000 ton carrier | World | News

The warship allows marines to capture beaches and land supplies on enemy territory and will operate alongside an increasingly powerful fleet of aircraft carriers, air defence destroyers and underwater drones. Its launch sends a clear message from Beijing to Taiwan over any hopes for future independence from its powerful mainland neighbour. A potential Chinese assault on Taiwan has for years been mocked as the “million-man swim” because the navy did not have anything approaching the amphibious capability needed to land enough troops on the island. But the jokes are now…

Intelligence Suggests Imminent Launch Of China’s New Amphibious Assault Carrier

While recent events have focused military thinking on the Persian Gulf, a small corner of the defense community have been looking in an entirely different direction: towards China. The country’s first amphibious assault carrier, a 35,000-ton behemoth, is about to be launched from an innocuous-looking shipyard in Shanghai. When the new warship enters the water it will, in a near-instant, transform the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN). The new Type-075 Amphibious Assault Carrier is nearly as large as the US Navy’s America Class vessel H I Sutton Termed a Landing…

British Aircraft Carrier Plans to Sail in South China Sea

Chinese Ambassador Liu Xiaoming rejected the statement by the Royal Navy that they would be maintaining international law regarding freedom of navigation. The new British aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, would be sent to the South China Sea on her first operational deployment. Experts believe Brexit is forcing Britain to pivot to the American position on the South China Sea. China warned Britain not to enter the South China Sea to sail near disputed islands, saying that it constitutes “hostile behavior,” and implied that Beijing would be forced to make a…

HMS Queen Elizabeth: China warns it would be ‘hostile act’ if Royal Navy’s aircraft carrier enters disputed waters on her first deployment

China warns the UK could be committing ‘hostile action’ if it sends carrier into territory 

Britain has been warned by China that the deployment of HMS Queen Elizabeth to the South China Sea could be viewed as a “hostile action”.  The MoD plans to send Britain’s new aircraft carrier to the Asia Pacific region on her first operational deployment, due in 2021. The government is keen to assert freedom of navigation through international waters and, alongside US and Australian allies, has been forthright in defending such actions against an increasingly belligerent China. The planned deployment will see F-35 stealth jets from the US Marine Corps…
