Hello from China. Russian-Chinese naval exercises "Maritime interaction - 2012"

All the media talk about the next Russian-Chinese naval exercises "Marine Interaction - 2012". Which this time will naturally exceed in scale all previous ones, and most importantly will differ in content. It is believed that so far the interaction has been directed solely at anti-terrorist activities, and now, among other things, at countering the challenges of external enemies ...
It is clear that the exercises are planned, but against the background of the large joint exercises of the US and Philippine Armed Forces, which are also scheduled (annual "Balikatan" - Shoulder to shoulder), but this time with some unthinkable scale, all these activities look very intriguing. Among other things, this year for the first time Japan, South Korea, Australia, Vietnam and Singapore joined Balikatan. In addition, they changed the location of these exercises, before they were held in the southern Philippines, now - near the disputed areas of the South China Sea claimed by China!

Well, all right, let it all bother big minds, but our business is small, to show how it all looks through the eyes of Vladivostok sailors.))

        And not only +!

        Their previously built destroyers have already been modernized. constantly monitor what the leading maritime powers are doing and immediately "clone" (or modify)!

        those. successfully enter paradise on someone else's hump !!!

        Not so long ago, both destroyers of project 052 went through modernization, they removed 4 twin 37mm gun mounts of the Type 76A, put two seven-barrel 30mm Type 730 guns, replaced some radars, etc. and now they look like this:

      The uniform was probably stolen. But the caps did not steal. Under it, the Chinese can not be seen. In the first photo, the uncle on the right is not a cap, but a whole helicopter carrier Mistral. Yesterday I saw through the box how he held this headdress with his hand so that it would not blow down the wind. Yudashkin sewed? laughing

      And not only, but the ships we sold them ourselves!

      At the moment, the “956th” form the “Russian line” of the destroyers of the Chinese fleet, whose uniform strike force, possessing powerful shock (32 anti-ship missiles) and anti-air (192 missiles), is capable of operating in the ocean zone.

      Below is a quote from an article from the Atrina website:

      ... Project 956-E destroyers built for the Peoples Republic of China at the Severnaya Verf shipyard have proven themselves in the Chinese Navy, so the Chinese leadership decided to continue the series.
      But the next two ships, it was decided to build on the amended project 956-EM, which was developed in the Northern Design Bureau under the leadership of the chief designer V.P. Misha.
      Work on pr.956-EM (export, modernized) was started in 2001. It was immediately assumed that the ship would be significantly different from its predecessors.
      It was planned to upgrade weapons systems, navigation, radar equipment, control equipment of the main power plant.
      Work on the project was largely driven by the successful implementation of the 1997 contract for the supply of two naval destroyers of Project 956-E to the Chinese Navy.

      After negotiations at the beginning of 2002, the FSUE “Rosoboronexport” concluded a contract with the Ministry of Defense of the People’s Republic of China. The total amount of the foreign economic contract was, according to various estimates, from 1 to 1,4 billion dollars. It was expected that the ships would be handed over to the customer in the middle of 2006.

    I remember once the USSR helped German pilots in Lipetsk study ...
    You can’t trust the Chinese - they are somehow rapidly building up military muscles. And when there is a lot of strength, there will always be a temptation to apply it. The Chinese need to smile, holding a sharpened sword behind their backs.

      About the Chinese - I agree. Regarding Lipetsk, you are absolutely wrong.
      A flying school in Lipetsk was established in 1925. Created by the Germans, with German money (about 2 million gold rubles), aircraft were brought by the Germans at their expense (purchased by the Germans in Holland).
      The teaching staff is entirely Germans, pilots of the 1st World War.
      Over the entire period of the school’s functioning, 360 cadets graduated. Of these, 160 are Soviet. 45 Soviet aircraft mechanics trained. When Hitler came to power - cooperation was curtailed, the Germans exhausted the house, the school remained. The entire material base was left to us for free.
      Over the same period, more than 2000 German pilots were trained in illegal flight schools in Germany.
      And the relationship with China, here I agree with you, suspiciously looks like a brief period of fierce friendship with Germany in 1939. They alarm me.

    The larger the mess in the army and navy, the greater the wagon's tulle. This is so that the knees on the trousers do not fade under the sun.

    Interestingly, how do the Chinese distinguish each other by rank? Neither shoulder straps nor buttonholes. On sleeve patches, or what ???
    1. mizantropi
      mizantropi April 27 2012 14: 02
      Probably by facial expression.

    In vain you are talking about caps, I like naval caps, on the one hand it’s not kommelfo, on the other hand it’s cool - big, probably it’s necessary)))

    God be with them, with these caps. The main thing is not to lose vigilance and not relax from a warm embrace. The Chinese do not already consider Russia an equal adversary, they cut out their Asian charm, by all means showing that we are friends do not spill water. But all this until the first serious clash of interests. And if in this case Russia is unyielding, the Chinese will stop smiling.
