China gets Russia’s best submarine technology, as Russia seeks to avoid economic recession

Amur 1650 Submarine

Amur 1650 Submarine

The following is a translation from Chinese media:

The Inquisitr said in an article titled “Russian 1650 Amur-class submarine will be given to China” on October 18: Putin hopes to partially avoid Russian economic recession by trading with China.

It is believed that Putin sold China Russia’s top submarine in exchange for economic gains to ease the effect of Western sanctions. That is a natural belief as people always focuses on past enmity between Russia and China due to Mao’s fight against Soviet revisionism for leadership of the socialist camp of the Cold War, which led to border conflict.

They do not know that Chinese and Russian leaders had the vision to set up an alliance against the US long ago. That was why when Russian officials opposed Putin’s sale of advanced weapons to China, Putin told them that arms sale was political.

That was why as far back as on December 20, 2012, long before the Ukraine crisis, China and Russia entered into a frame contract on joint design and construction of 1650 Amur-class submarine. Due to lack of mutual trust, implementation of the contract was slow, but the two countries’ leaders’ desire for a close alliance was clear. When Russia got China’s firm support in the Ukraine issue, the mutual trust had finally been established.

Now the project is making normal progress. According to the contract, China is participating in the design and construction so as to get the technology in building the submarine. As Russia has only completed construction of one such most advanced submarine, the type of submarine is Russia’s newest one with its top technology. Russia is willing to share its top technology with China because China is its best ally.

Similarly, Russia and China decided on joint development of a wide-body airliner long ago, but Russia sent its expert to China only recently. Now the two countries have decided to begin construction of the airliner next year.

Moreover, Russia will begin delivery of Su-35 fighters and S-400 air defence systems in the first quarter of 2015. By so doing, Russia renders great help to China in China’s arms race with the US.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
