37
Chinese media published pictures of the fourth Chinese amphibious assault ship helicopter 071 Yimeng Shan, taken during sea trials, reports blog Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies.




The construction of this ship was carried out by the Shanghai Hudong-Zhonghua Shipyard of the Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group, which is part of the Shanghai Shipbuilding Company of the Chinese shipbuilding state corporation China Shipbuilding State Corporation (CSSC). He was launched in January 2015 and should be included in combat fleet in December.

To date, there is information about the four ships-docks of this project, the displacement of which is 20 000 tons. After the implementation of the construction program, the Chinese military will be able to conduct amphibious operations in remote areas at the level of leading Western states, with the exception of the United States.

Each ship 071 project has four transport helicopters Z-8F and two landing craft air cushion 726 project, which created "based on" American LCAC type boats.

        Well, such ships are now popular with everyone, because they are always really useful:
        - demonstrate the flag, right up to Hamburg, the Chinese, for example, have reached.
        - participation in numerous humanitarian operations.
        - participation in various international operations (raids in Aden, SPN raids in Somalia on spot operations).
        - extensive participation in exemplary operations to evacuate the Chinese from the flaming regions of the world.
        - transfer of various goods to equipment, not equipped places. The same as the BDK, only one pass replaces the 3 BDK + the ability to transfer groups of helicopters in an assembled and ready-to-operate state.
        - projection of force and other pressure of democratization.

        Not everyone is given to understand this. Many still dream of a war between the United States and China, not understanding the obvious things. And the evidence is that 70% of the Chinese economy is exported to the EU and the USA. So the enemy is a priori different, since the Chinese, with all their anti-American statements, will not chop the branch on which the whole economy rests. The question is who is this enemy? Japan is only an intermediate goal, or rather distracting (remember, Germany and the USSR "were friends" after the start of World War II). Based on these facts, it is necessary to "be friends" with China, without letting go of the gun. Otherwise, we will pay very much, much stronger. hi

          The war has been going on for quite some time. But not between the states of the USA and China, especially not between the USA and the Russian Federation ..... The war is between world Jewry and world China (this is not a figurative expression, it has a place to be ... Besides the PRC there is the small Chinese states of Taiwan and Singapore ... There is the concept of Greater China, which includes Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Myanmar, etc., in which the Chinese diaspora controls 60 to 90% of the economies of these countries .... There are multi-million Chinese diasporas in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South America, Africa, Europe ... By the way, in Russia, the Chinese diaspora is the smallest in comparison with the above countries and continents ....) ... Each of the parties puts together alliances. ... Russia took the side of China unequivocally ... Europe took the side of Jewry .... The rest of the countries are vacillating, including Japan, although many think that Japan has decided ....

      Do you think they changed priorities? Abandoned * unification * of the motherland? And then, Taiwan is historically Chinese territory. This is like our Crimea. Then, to compete with the Yap is much more expensive than with Taiwan. And this despite the fact that everyone has ama behind their backs. But moral strength in the first case is a real factor on the side of the hongfuz.
      As for the disputed islands. Yes, this is also possible. But, as the Dark One said: it’s the same as cutting a piglet - there are a lot of squeals, there is not enough wool! Yes, all will be condemned. And here the restoration of historical justice - the unification of a single people, the restoration of the territorial integrity of the homeland. IMHO.

        There is no country, but the party has remained, you are wrong. Gorbachev, Shevarnadze, Yeltsin, Yakovlev, Kravchuk .... the leaders of the CPSU, apparently knew what they were doing. By the way, Medvedev is the grandson of the secretary of the district committee, Gaidar is the grandson of the political worker-admiral, the editor of the journal "Communist" himself and Chubais has the father of the political worker. So the cause of Lenin lives and is continued by the children and grandchildren of true Leninists.

          For those who put a minus to me, I recommend reading how our grandchildren and children of our general secretaries (except Chernenko’s grandchildren, all live in the United States or EU) relate to us. It’s not that they write about Putin, but what characterization is given to our people by the granddaughter of Khrushchev. Nina Khrushcheva, the great-granddaughter of the Soviet secretary general, dean of the faculty of International Relations at New School University in New York, writes on ninakhrushcheva.wordpress.com. The translation of the article is published by New Time.
          “Twenty years ago I almost met Donald Trump. At the time, I graduated from Princeton, was not familiar with American tastes in popular culture, and everyday clashes with celebrities made me a little shocked. Field note: I’m probably older and less radical, I’m sure I would like this circus, but at that moment I considered myself a Russian intellectual, Russia gave me a chance to hope that her future would not be limited to a new return to communism, and the fact of the existence of such a politician as Donald Trump seemed rude to me a joke, if not a mockery.
          Trump has not changed a bit over the years, but now there is a demand for him in society, so what are we complaining about? It seems that today a much larger number of people take him seriously, about 20% support the idea of ​​Trump to run for president. For twenty years, we have become at 20% more prone to fawning and stupid jokes.
          A sobering moment, because the Americans despise the Russians for their love of Putin and attempts to imagine him as such James Bond; his 007 style airplanes, bathyscaphe dives and shirtless horseback riding. They call him a clown, but at the same time, America herself drools over the no less clown - Donald Trump with his strange hairstyle.
          As one author subtly noted, for Trump, the pleasure of insulting seems to be no less attractive than the deal. No matter who his opponents are reporters or other presidential candidates, for Trump they are all dummies, incompetent, weak, disgusting and / or unable to satisfy her husband in bed. “When someone hurts you, your answer should be as harsh and aggressive as possible,” Trump wrote in one of the chapters of his business tips. When tactics fail, he tries to get them fired. "
          This is very similar to Putin: when critics annoy him, he threatens to "wet them in the toilet." The situation in Ukraine, the imprisonment of former oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, as well as the murder of journalist Anna Politkovskaya and opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, confirm that the phrase "your answer should be as harsh and aggressive as possible" - in the spirit of Putin.
          I do not support the Russian president — I even went out onto Red Square with the banner “Putin is Dick,” but I want to advise some Americans who are convinced of their innocence and absolute innocence to look in the mirror first.
          I think that their awareness of the real state of affairs will significantly improve the situation in the international arena. Moreover, this can save us from Trump’s victory in the presidential election. The reality king is certainly not Putin, not yet. But if he is elected, will Mexico or even Canada become American Ukraine? "

    after all, well done Chinese, they bake ships like pies, but we apologize not, after the failure with the Mistrals (thanks to Serdyukov, once again), we still cannot reach the “push-push” pr. 11771 “Ivan Gren” (laid 23.12.2004 g, launched on 18.05.2012 g.), Which is the development of the BDK Ave. 1171 end 60-x-70-xx gg with a helipad.
    All more or less developed countries have in their composition UDC:
    Australia bought the former English UDC Largs Bay in 2011 in December last year and commissioned the Spanish UDC L 02 Canberra, and the second UDC L 01 Adelaide next year

    Japan-4: 2 type Hyūga and 2 type Izumo

    South Korea: 1 type Dokdo (planned 3)

    In this case, the South Koreans built the Indonesian 2 UDC type "Makassar" (another 2 Indonesians have built themselves), help build the 2 ship of this project Peru and 2 for the Philippines and Myanmar.

    Even Algeria, which has never been a trendsetter in naval fashion, bought the UDC Kalaat Beni-Abbes in Italy. DVKD has a solid flight deck with two landing sites for heavy helicopters in the extremities and an 30-ton lift in the center of the deck. The dock camera of the ship provides for the basing of three tank landing boats of the LCM type. In addition, on the davits and sponsons, the Algerian DVKD carries three small landing craft of type LCVP, one type of LCP (L) and two semi-rigid motorboats. On a small hangar ("garage") deck it is possible to place up to 15 units of armored vehicles or five T-90CA tanks. The crew of the ship are 150 people (including the composition of the air group), and the landing capacity of the landing party is 440 people.

    We alone decide everything, whether we need UDC, about their projects and where they will be built ...

        Maybe someone argued, but certainly not me ... As for those who argued, I can only say one thing:

        Now it turns out that the fleet needs a BDK, which, following the example of its brethren during World War II, must land on the landing like an orca after a seal? At the same time, being exposed to fire even from small arms, not to mention artillery and tanks, and not UDC, from which landing on DFA, plus air cover (the same Ka-52K). Wonderful. As for the need for UDC, in the USSR 3 BDK Ave 1174 was built, the same UDC in the dock chamber of which up to six boats of Ave 1785 (7,5 units running speed) or 1176 Ave boats were placed. Instead of them, three amphibious air cushion boats of the 10 project (up to 1206 nodes) or amphibious assault boats on the 50 Serna air cave could be placed in the dock chamber. Plus the air group-11770 Ka-4, not 29, as in the "Green".


        Plus, the unrealized 11780 project, the so-called "Ivan Tarava", which in the anti-submarine version was supposed to carry 25 Ka-27 helicopters. In the landing version - 12 transport and combat helicopters Ka-29. In the docking chamber - 4 landing craft of the 1176 project or 2 landing craft of the 1206 project

          In my opinion, the main problem is that the USSR began to lag behind in the field of building amphibious ships. Nobody prepared large-scale amphibious operations, so the construction of the BDK Ave. 775 was transferred to "fraternal" Poland, and they themselves built the useless "Hermaphrodite" Ave 1143 with their weak Yak-38, BOD Ave 1155, destroyers Ave 956, 5 NPS types, etc. etc. The same project of the Soviet UDC "Ivan Tarava" was ruined by departmental contradictions, so at the request of the USSR Minister of Defense Marshal of the Soviet Union DF Ustinov (seemingly the smartest person was) tracking of enemy submarines in the peacetime was added to tasks . And plus the "dislike" of Soviet leaders for aircraft carriers, which they considered "an instrument of imperialism"
          And now, it has what we have:
          3 of the oldest BDK pr. 1171, one of which is Orsk (BSF) in constant repair
          19 BDK Pr. 775, which are "seeking" the "Syrian express"
          and one, built already 11 years (laid in 2004 year) "push-pull" "Ivan Gren" Ave. 11711, which is essentially a development of the ancient BDK Ave. 1171 60's, with the added helicopter deck, which in turn is a development of the American tank landing LST since the Second World War.
          With the breach of the Mistral contract, nothing like the UDC shields us anytime soon, and from the development of the UDK Surf, which still exists in the form of a layout, it will be at least 5-6 years old before it is added to the Navy. . It is cheaper to buy UD np. 071 from Chinese or even easier to buy just a “box” and retrofit it in domestic shipyards.

    Much stronger than from Europe or from the Americans?
    Have you ever wondered why 5,5 million Japanese live in Hokkaido, and 103 million live in Honshu. Why do not they populate it? Why the Hokkaido Ministry of Colonization was founded in the mid-19th century and is still difficult to settle. Answer: the climate is not suitable. Relatively mild with snowy winters, by our standards, for them it is harsh. Also the Chinese. They are used to living in warm climates. Subtropics and tropics. I can hardly imagine the Chinese living in Yakutia, Kolyma, Magadan or the Urals. Yes, we must fight not for life, but to die with terrible Russians.

      Well, imagine the Chinese living in Tibet or in the Gorno-Badakhshan region, where the climate is much more severe than in Yakutia and even more so in the Urals. Moreover, they manage to engage in agriculture there, hitting the locals with their crops. It is clear that they didn’t settle there voluntarily, the party ordered and thousands of them reached populate new lands. So if the party tells them to populate the banks of the Kolyma from Seymchan to Chersky, then don’t hesitate, they will settle, they will also conduct the railway along the Kolyma tract ...

        In Tibet and XUAR, the Chinese live according to the order, on the instructions, so to speak, of the party .... to keep the separatist sentiments in check .... And these areas are very important for China (like Siberia and the Far East for Russia) ... These the gates of the future New Silk Road to Europe, oil and gas pipelines from Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, in the future from Russia and Iran go through the same regions !!! But to stabilize these areas is possible only through the arrangement of infrastructure, job creation, the rise of social services, which the Chinese are doing (as it was under the USSR, Russians moved to the republics and established infrastructure, production, universities, hospitals, etc.)

      I’m afraid your arguments will never reach many! The influence of the anti-Chinese propaganda of the 90s and the zeros, carried out by yourself, is still great .... By the way, you can’t drive Russians living in the middle lane to Siberia and the Far East! !! Moreover, a bunch of my friends moved from Siberia to Rostov-papa, Krasnodar, Sochi, Tambov, Kursk, Sochi, already to Crimea, even to Belarus .... I don’t know anyone in Vladik who moved in the last 10 -15 years....
