Indian Admiral: China builds as many warships as no one builds

40
B edition India Today An interview with the chairman of the committee of chiefs of staff, chief of staff of the Indian Navy, Admiral Sunil Lanba, was published. A substantial part of the conversation with the Indian admiral was devoted to strengthening the military presence of China, including in the Indian Ocean.


From the interview:
Since 2014, China has launched more warships than the total number of ships on fleets Germany, India, Spain, Taiwan and the UK. How does this affect the balance of power at sea?


Sunil Lanba:
They put into operation from 12 to 18 warships per year. Over the past four to five years, they have ordered 80 new ships and submarines. Not a single navy grew at such a pace for more than a hundred years, not counting the two world wars. China’s economy is six times larger than ours, and their defense budget is more than five times ours. They invest huge sums in the development of naval capabilities.




Marked "frightening" growth of the Chinese military presence in the South China Sea. "They build as much as no one builds."

According to the Indian admiral, India is engaged in military-technical and military-logistics cooperation with the United States of America. Sunil Lanba recalled the action between New Delhi and Washington on the Compatibility and Security Agreement (COMCASA), the security memorandum (CISMOA), the logistic information exchange memorandum (LEMOA).

Chief of Staff of the Indian Navy:
These agreements promote greater interoperability and interoperability between the fleets of India and the United States. Our fleet is fueled by American tankers in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. This expands the range and coverage, as well as the economic benefits of expanding the deployment, since we do not need to perform a constant operational turnover in the ports.


According to Sunil Lanba, the United States promises Indian military access to the military planning systems of the US missions, which will contribute to the development program of naval patrols.

The admiral told about the preparation of the Indian Navy for joint maneuvers with the United States on the east (or west) coast in the second half of 2019.

Sunil Lanba noted New Delhi’s concern over the activation of Chinese submarines in the Indian Ocean. At the same time, he noted that one of the measures to curb Chinese naval activity could be the implementation of the program to form the Indian nuclear submarine fleet, as well as the development of the anti-submarine component, including through the use of American-made military equipment.

      By 2030 China will build 4 carrier groups and the fleet will confidently take the second place in its power. sad

        China already confidently takes the second place without taking into account the submarine strategic missile carriers of Russia.

        China is building a fleet to secure its maritime trade. The Chinese fleet will divert significant forces of the American fleet. This is to our advantage.

            We also need to build a fleet, then China will not turn on us.
            It’s just that in the Cold War 2.0, due to the GDP policy of a multipolar world, the number of participants in the Arms Race has increased tremendously: the USA, Russia, NATO, China, India, Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and many other regional players.
            The Arms Race is becoming global. Army Games have become a global sports day for the military.
            Ensuring US military hegemony under such conditions is very problematic. Probably the US will explode, like the USSR.

              Sorry, but GDP is not God, so he could not influence the development of world civilization. This is the result of the overall development and collapse of the social system. The world does not tolerate emptiness.

              Enough already repeating the tales of "perestroika" about the "overstrained" economy of the USSR. If it were not for the general betrayal of the elite and the brainwashing of the population, its economy would feel fine and we would still live in the USSR.

          I can’t agree with you, China’s strengthening does not fit anyone’s hands, China is quietly actively conquering weak countries, Africa, for example, has its own police there. And the Chinese are building all the enterprises that the Chinese work exclusively.

              I know. Moreover, these "graters" are very satisfied with the "doves of peace" of our planet. Including under this brand they persistently poke their nose into India. It would not hurt the Hindus not to forget what the "friendship" with the Anglo-Saxons is fraught with. The fact that Russia has little to offer India in terms of the Navy is, unfortunately, a fact. Which does not mean at all that the United States will fill the Indians with its ships, and even more so with technologies.

                I agree in everything, I would have remembered a certain "curvature" of Indian sailors, but nevertheless, more like the United States in this matter, they already strongly hope and have no one.

      Not. Own way:
      056 corvettes - SEMT Pielstick PA6-STC, manufactured in China under a license (localization there already under 100% probably) for Shaanxi Diesel Engine Works.
      054 frigates - the same engine, only in a different combination (4 diesel assembly) and a different configuration.
      052С destroyers - Chinese licensed copy of MTU diesel + UGT-25000 afterburners purchased at Zora.
      052D destroyers are a Chinese licensed copy of the MTC + diesel engine QC-280 turbines assembled from kits supplied with Zori, with a gradual increase in localization (but EMNIP still use kits with Zori).
      055 - COGAG destroyers on the 4 QC-280 turbines.
      071 DKVD is a Chinese licensed copy of SEMT Pielstick.
      the largest of the world's operating complex fast supply supply ships of the 901 - COGAG type on the 4 QC-280 turbines.


      In Russia - they didn’t buy licenses, they didn’t organize modern production. The result is clear. That even the 100 + cylinder monsters from the Star are collected with great difficulty and a systematic breakdown of time even created in the times of Khrushchev and outdated in the times of the late Brezhnev.

          Yeah. In the USSR it was even profitable to buy garlic bells at a state price in stores, and sell them over a hill at the price of scrap metal. I am already silent about the aluminum basins, which the children bought for skiing from a hill. Of these, foreigners made satellite dishes. Damn, in the book of Parshin, it is described that a deep pump for 25 rubles, abroad could be exchanged for 2 videos. And we could exchange for a Japanese video recorder in the eighties for a summer residence near Moscow, and they didn’t agree. The clinic is complete. And the Chinese comrades in the 90s took Izhevsk motorcycles in mattresses. Smuggling, like.

    China is absolutely self-sufficient! Always your interests above all else. China has no allies and it is not an ally for anyone, it acts exclusively in its own interests around the world. Therefore, questions about writing off other people's debts to China are not standing. They (even if they have) will still pay these debts, one way or another. Well done, in a word!
