The following is based on a translation of a report in Chinese media:

Photos of the Chinese navy’s new Type 636 mesopelagic-pelagic survey ship have been posted by “military fans” on the Internet to show China’s advanced capabilities in building super-quiet anti-submarine warships.

The captions of the photos state that the Chinese navy’s Type 636 mesopelagic-pelagic survey ship is brilliant in its silence due to the use of a side slanting propeller, a floating vibration-reduction technology device for its diesel generator, the vibration-reduction design of its major machinery, damping treatment for its foundation bed and hull and measures such as soft connection of the sound platform of its energy exchange and sound absorption.

It is said that the ship is quieter by far than many other anti-submarine warships and can be regarded as a “black hole in ocean.”

Experts say that the above-mentioned silencing technology has also been used in many destroyers and frigates in service in Chinese navy.

According to the report, there may be new specialised anti-submarine warships.

The report says that because these ships are so quiet, they are far superior to mainstream anti-submarine warships.

A photo has been posted by a web user of the cutting of a door at the tail of a new frigate being built.

The warship is said to be the Type 054 frigate the Daqing no. 576, with enhanced anti-submarine capability.

The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. 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 The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that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 US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the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.
