China set a world record for launching destroyers for PLA Navy

Chinese shipbuilders set a kind of world record by building and launching nine destroyers for the PLA Navy in 2019. This was reported by the bmpd blog with reference to dambiev's material "A record of Chinese military shipbuilding."


Reportedly, on December 26 this year, two destroyers were launched at a shipyard in Dalian: the sixth destroyer of project 055 and the twenty-third destroyer of project 052D. Thus, in just 2019, the Chinese shipbuilders launched nine destroyers of two projects for the PLA Navy.

The countdown began on February 23 this year, when the seventeenth serial destroyer of the 052D Nanying project was launched at the Jiangnan Shipyard in Shanghai. Then, on April 16, at the same Jiangnan shipyard, the eighteenth destroyer of the same project 052D Huainan was launched.

On May 10, 2019, in Dalian, at the Dalian Liaonan Shipyard, two Project 052D missile destroyers were launched at once, they were the last ships built according to the old project. In total, 20 destroyers of project 052D were built.

The twenty-first destroyer of project 052D, built according to the modernized version, was launched on August 28, 2019 at a shipyard in Shanghai. With this option, the helicopter pad was made longer to base the ship's version of the latest Chinese Z-20 helicopter.

On September 12, 2019, the fifth destroyer of project 055 was launched at the Jiangnan Shipyard in Shanghai. On September 26, 2019, the twenty-second destroyer of project 052D was launched in Shanghai, Shanghai. And finally, on December 26, the sixth destroyer of project 055 and the twenty-third destroyer of project 052D were launched in Dalian.

In total, in 2019, Chinese shipyards launched 23 surface ships in the interests of the PLA Navy. Among them: 1 project 075 universal landing ship, 1 project 071 landing helicopter docking ship, 2 project 055 destroyers, 7 project 052D destroyers, 12 project 056 corvettes.

          China is preparing to defend its investments around the world. The project "One belt - one way" should directly or indirectly involve 120 countries.

            Yep yep - a new growing syuper power
            To build ships does not mean to create a fleet.

            Remind me, where, how and when did they defend their “interests”?

            I quickly remember when the Americans ordered them to close banks for Russia - they took them under the hood
            Where, when and how did the Chinese really defend their interests by force?

              After 10 years, they will have a first-class fleet, experience will be gained in services and long hikes, and experienced captains and naval commanders will appear. China is systematically and consistently becoming a first-class world power with global interests. To do this, they need a fleet. Just the fleet they are building. Material and production capabilities allow them to build a fleet at a pace that exceeds the pace of the United States by 2 to 4 times.
              They are studying .
              You can certainly amuse yourself with memories of the former glory of the Soviet Union Fleet, but a dismissive tone regarding the second (!) Fleet of the world in surface forces .... but at such a pace of its construction ... this is not even stupid.
              This is paranoia.
              The fleet upgrade program Russia and China began at about the same time. They also started with boats and corvettes, then frigates - cheap, on diesels. Their first versions of the 052 destroyers were exemplary analogues of our 22350, and the latest modification is an analog of the 22350M. Their 055 project corresponds to our Leader project in gas turbines (just at 12 tons. Also, 000 CWPs for the Kyrgyz Republic were proposed with a displacement).
              So there is something to compare - plans and implementation.

                  Yes, they (the Chinese) themselves do a good job with advertising.

                  Do you think their fleet of skeletons?
                  But they chase their ships around Africa, in the Indian Ocean and in the southern seas constantly. No tugboats. And they don’t hear any accidents or emergencies. According to the conformity of weapons systems, the question is complex - the country is closed, there is little information. Crew training and officer training? It’s hard to say, but since accidents, especially on long hikes, can’t be heard from them, it turns out that everything is not so bad as you hint.
                  Discipline? Execution? Manageability?
                  These are just the strengths of modern Chinese society.
                  A potential adversary, like a neighbor and even a partner, needs to know, take his study seriously and not rely on the former glory of the ancestors. And whoever does not agree, let him study the experience of the Russo-Japanese War of 1904 - 1905. - cleans the brain.
                  We really have nothing to boast about in the present, but in the very next 10 years, serious changes for the better are possible. And in order to see this, you do not need a time machine, you just need to be patient and, if possible, make your own efforts to achieve future success.

                  But the modern achievements of China in the construction of the fleet are worthy of white envy. This is just a fact.

      It’s a shame to say, but it’s time for the Russian Ministry of Defense to think about returning to the experience of the Russian Empire and to build at least buildings with a power plant in at least China. I think the price will be the same, but in terms of time, the Chinese will wipe their nose on our shipbuilders. Maybe at least they will start thinking how not to cut the loot, but to work.

        Yes, there were such thoughts, and officers from the Pacific Fleet at Chinese shipyards came to see and ask the price. And the Chinese themselves proposed to build for Russia a series of frigates 053 on a diesel engine - up to 20 pieces. Enclosures with power plants and possibly navigation equipment. And 2 - 4 pieces of airborne 071, after our bummer with the Mistrals.
        But the matter ended in nothing. Perhaps after China joined the US sanctions in the banking sector. And rightly so, that they refused - it is unreliable. With China.
        Although purely technically and empirically, it would be nice to get pieces of 8 frigates 053 for our saturation. Not a fountain, of course, in speed, but economical. They would have delivered Caliber, Redoubt, and GAK from Gorshkov ... But they have already tried it with Mistral, so it’s better for yourself.

          Of course. The USSR in the early 20s, despite poverty and ruin, was a much more independent country than the “sluggish Ketai” today
          Anglo-Saxons clicked their fingers - and the Chinese will run to perform.

            China is a global factory, it critically depends on the openness of sales markets and raw materials. If the US market closes, China’s losses will be colossal. Therefore, they will not take risks. Therefore, we did not take risks, but simply prepare our industry for our own "construction boom". So Rosatom wished to build another super-ship of the scale of the Far Eastern Star. Civil shipbuilding is developing and gaining momentum. The first domestic power plants for 22350 have already been delivered to the consumer.
            So, as Comrade Stalin said, “relying on his own strength” —that is more reliable. And more promising.

              Yes, someone argues that it is necessary on their own, while the current is swinging on our own, the remnants of the USSR are finally working out their resources. We’ll find ourselves naked, given the territorial claims of Japan, which the Japanese are pushing. As if 1905 the second time did not get.

                Well, why with naked belay shame, though not brocade and velvet, but covered. Here is the "Admiral Kasatonov" state. finishes, maybe under the Christmas tree and has time. In Vladik, the BOD is preparing to go out of modernization with the 16th UVP under Caliber - Zircons ... they promise to launch Admiral Nakhimov on the water for completion and testing on the go next year ... this year (at the beginning) laid two 22350+, and in the future two more will be laid ... "Moscow" is about to exit the repair ... submarines again, with a creak, but are being built.
                Well, there were no ship engines in Russia. Generally not produced. They counted on Ukraine in the Eurasian Union to have cooperation, but it’s just like ... now, after a stimulating pecking of a roasted rooster to a causal place, a new branch in the economy has practically been created. Turbines, running gears and diesel engines ... the first have already gone to the consumer - to the GCC.
                And China has been lucky twice, because instead of working with all its might on the Russian military-industrial complex, the Ukrainian Zorya-Mashproekt drives turbines and gearboxes to China in two or three shifts, because it has its own capacities (and competencies) for such a pace of fleet construction. .. not enough . Now they have a GEM in excess, which is why such a breathtaking pace - 2-4 times higher than in the United States.

                But Japan is not pushing Japan, but its winner in WWII, and they, like those mice that ate a cactus, cried, but continued.
                They will not dare to war. the military doctrine of the Russian Federation allows the president to use nuclear weapons in the event of a threat to sovereignty and integrity, moreover, at least 10 MiG-31s ​​with “Daggers” on board that are capable of delivering hypersonic attacks on sea and ground targets every 1,5 hours this word has become fashionable repeat ) missiles, including nuclear equipment. Japan will not need much.
                And she KNOWS it.
                There will be no new 1905.
                ... Unless, the sixth column in the Kremlin will cause a coup ... well, it’s not a muscular young lady who is found, if they dare, then it’s not known (in fact, it’s very well known) whose heads will roll with chopping block. They were not just told about the old KGB officer carrying out the execution. wink

      The Chinese, as far as I can tell, didn’t save much on the work, but they simply scoffed at the materials, and due to the fact that they were not embarrassed to put anyone on the wall for stealing from a defense article, the quality should be up to par. Design flaws do not count.

      They go without tugboats. If there is an emergency, then in all the news at once ... But the only thing that squeezed out after the emergency was the replacement of the destroyer 052D with the same type for the St. Petersburg parade. However, the sensation did not work. The one that was originally planned was deployed under the supervision of the Hindu Rimpak. And then he generally escaped to Africa.


      Well, or for example, Hefei (DDG-174) + frigate 054A + supply 903 - came to the Baltic Sea, skated the Sea interaction - 2017.
      https://topwar.ru/122702-aktivnaya-faza-ucheniy-morskoe-vzaimodeystvie-2017.html
      https://dambiev.livejournal.com/936928.html

      Then they slowly went to a semicircle around Africa, went to Cape Town
      A Chinese naval flotilla on its way home from the North Atlantic called in to Cape Town on Friday 1 September for a brief, three-day visit. The Chinese People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) task force comprises the Type 052D destroyer Hefei (DDG-174), Type 054A frigate Yuncheng (571) and Type 903A replenishment ship Luomahu (964).


      As a result, they came home coming to 23 countries in October (they left in June).

      Ships go around the world. Actively. Therefore, it is running readiness high. And there were no special state of emergency.

      As in battle, quality is how battle will show. Any ship - it will be in doubt. And 22350. And Derings. And FREMMy. And Zumwalt. Although Perry and Berkov have some experience not only shooting in conditions close to polygon, but also raking in the floppy.

      There is half the answer in your question. Prepare for war. To the world war. China has “woken up” and now only some other China will be able to silence it ... It is not in vain that they poisoned it with opium for many years, delayed the moment of awakening. And now he woke up in order to take what is due to him. For this, the fleet (including) is needed ...

        To war - maybe. To the world - hardly ... recourse
        Rather, to local conflicts in protecting their trade
        interests around the world.
        China is actively investing in Africa, Asia and South America.
        He buys mineral deposits (of various kinds).
        Buys agricultural land and finished plantations.
        Builds ports and railways in these countries so that these raw materials
        take to yourself.
        But in these countries, not everyone is happy. Call it "Chinese neo-colonialism."
        And they will try to overcome “for the people of their country” someday.
        Then UDC, marines and destroyers with frigates will come in handy for China.

        China will try to maintain its current position in the markets of Africa and Asia. Confrontation with the USA, Europe and Japan over these markets will only intensify. The presence of 2030-3 aircraft carrier groups in the fleet by 4 will allow China to ensure the safety of these positions.

      It was always necessary to be on guard and with everyone. As for me, at the moment, China is simply going to protect its sovereignty and is going to defend itself primarily from those who openly threaten it. At the moment, China is directly called the enemy hegemon and satellites, simultaneously setting fire to Hong Kong, they are about to deploy the INF INF, and of course the economic war being waged by the United States and China can easily turn into a normal one, and it’s getting ready. China is just getting ready for the day when its ships will not be allowed to pass another American ship in disputed territorial waters. By this day, you need to have a large and strong fleet, with such a pace this day is just around the corner. And of course, one should not forget that during this time China bought up almost half of Africa, and much more, it is necessary to protect its interests and investments.

        China needs the fleet not only for these strategic goals, but also in order to solve the Taiwan issue. It is especially painful and complicated for the Chinese leadership. A powerful fleet is one of the most serious arguments for Taiwan - to "return" to China. hi

          Well, then yes, these are all links of the same chain, a confrontation with the hegemon and satellites. And Taiwan and the disputed islands and other territorial claims of China’s neighbors (India, the Philippines, Vietnam), and Tibet and Uyghur terrorist organizations inside China and Hong Kong, there. These are all pain points on which they will press and in order to ease the pressure, we need various instruments (economic, political, military) one of the instruments is a strong fleet. But if you do everything wisely and if in alliance with Russia, most of the issues can be resolved and relieved of stress in many painful places, which will allow you not to disperse your forces and concentrate on the main direction and, together with Russia, begin a smooth descent of the hegemon to the ground. With a strong fleet and army, and also with a strong military ally that can really erase the hegemon, one can concentrate on the design of a new silk route that includes both the northern sea route via water and the land route through Eurasia. Then it will be possible only with the help of economic and political tools to lower the hegemon and even possibly restart the world system and bury one polar world. But this is ideal, and the world, as we know, is not ideal, perhaps the hegemon from the coils will finally eat up and unleash a big war, betrayals and cowardice and weakness of seemingly unstable alliances are possible, everything is possible. Therefore, we keep our eyes open, since intelligence in Russia eats its bread for nothing, and China continues to build its fleet.
