    But China is beginning to pay attention. Still, you can’t manage to sit quietly.

      It is they who are trying to cover up their "Pacific cooperation." Which is not long concluded. Yes, and China, you are right, too, at hand. But I think there will be little use from these ships.

        Of course, there is little sense, but there are more and more points where you need to direct someone and the US forces are beginning to strain, which is in our favor, let them sweat.

      Does China hope to sit out? There are no "partners". If the "batch" begins with you will start and will act hard! And then we too ... if they can of course!

        China is a colossus with feet of clay and World War II proved it .... with external unity, Chinese society is full of contradictions .... China’s destiny in the future is 4-6 states that are endlessly warring with each other

      States defend their interests in the region.
      A perfectly normal solution.
      Or is someone expecting a different behavior from the Americans?

      all that the US can do is to throw up weapons (or fight against a knowingly weak enemy). conflict with China - tremor of the annular muscle torment. and if they decide, the rest of America’s sworn “friends” will be glad to add a ridge along the ridge to them. so the next salivation due to the Atlantic will remain so

    Why to Singapore? To let China down? So not a great eskadra. The Chinese, even if they will not shoot, but simply run through the crowd, trample the "exceptional". Moreover, the ships are "not so hot" coastal coastal. By the power of the coast guard. I believe that to China they are flea bites to the “dragon”. But noted, it means the type of "world hegemon." “With a pig’s snout and in a Kalash line” (c).

    If someone like me was curious that in the photo:

    Coastal Battle Ship (LCS) USS Freedom

    The length is 115,3, the width is 17,5, the draft is 3,9 meters, the total displacement is about 3089 tons. The ship is equipped with a combined four-shaft diesel-gas turbine power plant with a total power of 113 thousand horsepower with four jet propulsion, which allows the LCS-1 to reach speeds of up to 45 nodes and make transitions to a range of 3500 nautical miles at a speed of 18 nodes.

    or one MH-60B / F helicopter and two or three deck-based unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) of a helicopter type. The LCS-1 armament includes a 57-mm Mk.110 gun, a SeaRAM anti-ship missile defense system with RIM-116 missiles, created on the basis of the 20-mm six-barreled anti-aircraft artillery system Mk-15 Mod.31 “Falanks”, unmanned aerial vehicles in anti-submarine version, robotic boats for search and destruction of mines, as well as protection against small high-speed vessels.

    Everyone carries their freedom with democracy, packing them in shells around the world. Restless.



    And in appearance a good bastard. :)))



    Our shipyards cannot be left behind!

      An invisibility system in infrared radiation is being introduced to the campaign. The exhaust has been put on board, although I would call it a controversial decision, the approaching missile receives another factor confirming precisely this purpose

    They are going to protect the base for the challenge and reform of beaten ISIS .... the words of the United States and "transnational terrorism" unfortunately are synonyms. belay
