PLA naval forces to conduct exercises in the South China Sea

China will hold naval exercises in the South China Sea. This is stated in the message of the PRC Maritime Safety Administration.


According to the report, the PLA naval forces will conduct exercises in the waters of the South China Sea from January 27 to 30. The maneuvers will take place west of the Leizhou Peninsula. In this regard, China is introducing a temporary ban on the appearance of civilian ships and warships in the exercise area.

The conditional boundaries of the area with a ban on navigation are indicated in the message.

The PLA Navy command did not disclose the number of ships that will participate in the exercises, as well as the plans and objectives of the maneuvers.

Note that earlier, the 7th US Navy Fleet, stationed in the Japanese port of Yokosuka, whose area of ​​responsibility includes the western Pacific and the eastern Indian Ocean, sent an aircraft carrier strike group led by the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt to the South China Sea just to "ensure freedom of navigation."

Most likely, the American AUG will monitor the exercises of the Chinese Navy, while China "flexes its muscles" knowing that it is being watched.

We will remind that earlier the USA demanded from China to stop pressure on Taiwan, having warned about the consequences.

      This is not an answer, this is a bluff ............. the answer will be when the American ships enter (and they will definitely enter) into the protection zone of the Spratly Islands

        In the South China Sea, China needs to conduct daily exercises on a rotational basis.

    It seems that the Chinese already welcomed the AUG yesterday with a strike group of fighters and bombers? If AUG comes to Taiwan, they may well gouge minke whales

          Moreover, if "AUG will come to Tavan" , Chinese "do not gouge" his. Will be limited to "expressing concern" laughing

              China will not go further than this line. Hope you understand the difference - "boarding ... by spy ships and UUVs" и "they can gouge ... AUG"? bully She's very, very substantial ... yes

    After:
    The Chinese authorities have allowed the Navy to fire on US military and civilian vessels without warning.
    This order was issued after the US Navy carrier strike group with the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt approached the territorial waters of China.
    Thus, the Chinese coast guard has the ability to use its weapons and seize any ships, reports the portal Avia.pro.

    It:
    PLA naval forces to conduct exercises in the South China Sea

    An obvious pattern.

    And the main thing is that China has enough funds to conduct exercises with 2-3 pennants at least all year round, here and there, constantly blocking the water areas on the route of the AUG. Well, if anything, they do not say in what composition they will conduct the exercises, if necessary, they may suddenly recall anti-submarine aviation. And in general, they have quite enough options to quickly build up their own grouping near their own shores.
