“Acoustic waves were a means of communication”: the Chinese press explained the use of sonar by a destroyer when meeting with an Australian Navy frigate

Recently, Canberra accused the Chinese destroyer Ningbo of inappropriate actions towards the Australian frigate Toowoomba. As stated, Toowoomba was anchored so that divers could remove fishing nets wrapped around the propeller. Ningbo, which encountered the frigate, used sonar, which led to “minor injuries” to the divers.

The Chinese Ministry of Defense issued a refutation of this information. As noted, the Australian ship did not operate in Japan’s exclusive economic zone, but in waters near the East China Sea, the delimitation of which was not carried out by Beijing and Tokyo.



The Chinese ship strictly followed international regulations. He was at a safe distance from the Australian side and did not carry out any activities that could affect the diving operations of the Australian side

- the official statement says.

We hope the relevant parties will stop creating problems at China's doorstep

- stated the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

At the same time, the Global Times notes that the Australian frigate could have ignored requests from the PLA Navy.

The Chinese ship was forced to send warnings using sonar through the acoustic waves it generated, which were a means of communication

- an explanation is given in the Chinese press.

      Rather, check their impact on a potential enemy.

      There are videos on YouTube where divers feel sonar pulses from a distance of several kilometers (warships are somewhere near the horizon). They say it's not enough pleasant things.

      And if you hit the divers with a sonar from about a hundred meters away, you might end up with a cutlet.

      I remember the Soviet patrol boats simply rammed an American cruiser and destroyer, raising signal flags - “I have dangerous cargo on board”, “stay away from me, I have difficulty controlling”, “your course leads to danger”.

      Yes, they freed the screws, of course. Surely some kind of observation tower was placed on the bottom to monitor ships and submarines. Kangaroos, they are not far from their small-British friends; the very fact that someone does not grovel before them is disgusting to them. They want to pin everyone down.

        And besides, they are liars:
        the Australian ship did not operate in Japan's exclusive economic zone, but in waters near the East China Sea, the delimitation of which has not been carried out by Beijing and Tokyo

        Little kangaroos, they're not far from their little British relatives...

      The article does not say anything whether the “Australopithecus” indicated that he was engaged in diving work, if not, then he went “through the forest” and turned on the music underwater at full blast.
      They don’t like exceptional people at sea.

      Our Foreign Ministry should also learn to mockingly and exhaustively respond to all sorts of strange requests from NATO countries.

      Is a warship in international waters near China conducting some kind of underwater work? And what was he doing so far from home? The Chinese did the right thing, otherwise their enemies could have played some dirty tricks.

        The Chinese did it “humanely”. Stay at home, motherfuckers, and you won’t have any problems.

      There is a war going on, albeit without a direct confrontation, which means that all possible means will be used.
