Reputation of China’s active performance of all 60 submarines submarine behind Japan
The article said that the Chinese navy submarine active 60 not to exceed the performance of the Japanese submarine
According to the U.S. Global Strategic Network 11 reported that since the 1970s, Japan has retained a team of at least 18 diesel-electric submarines in the fleet. Today the face of China’s growing naval power of the situation, this number will increase to 21 the Japanese fleet, or 24. Reported that China now has 60 submarines, including seven nuclear submarines, but not comparable in performance submarine Japanese submarine. In addition, the Japanese crew are trained and better training. But China is also building better ships, with more intensive training of the crew experienced. China’s two neighbors South Korea and Australia are also increasing their submarine force.
in the past three decades, Japan spent about 25 years to take advantage of previous experience to design the new submarines replace the old submarines, most of these new submarines are the new “black dragon level” (Soryu class ). There are two “black dragon level” (Soryu class) in service, four are still under construction. The submarine has a displacement of 2900 tons, 65 crew, there are six 533 mm (21 inch) torpedo tubes, 30 torpedoes or anti-ship, “Harpoon” missiles, two 76 mm pipes sound monitoring system, sonar, and power system performance is also far more than previous models. These submarines also have AIP (air independent propulsion) system, can guarantee stay underwater submarine once a week or longer. The maximum surface speed of the submarine is 24 km/h, the maximum speed of 37 kilometers underwater stealth/hour.
in Japan also has a 11 2700-ton “pro-surge levels” (Oyashio class) submarine, built in 1994 to 2008. Accommodate the crew of this vessel 70, equipped with six 533 mm (21 inch) torpedo tubes and 27 torpedoes or Harpoon anti-ship missile, the sonar system than the “Torrents of Spring-class” submarines (Harushio class) is more advanced. Maximum water speed sailing 24 km/h, the maximum underwater speed of 37 km/hour.
Japan now has five “Torrents of Spring-class” submarines (Harushio class), otherwise modified to do two training purposes. This 2400-ton submarine built in 1987 to 1997, with a crew of 65 to 70 people, equipped with six 533 mm (21 inch) torpedo tubes and 26 torpedoes or Harpoon anti-ship missile, has a hull base and towed sonar. Maximum water speed sailing 24 km/h, the maximum underwater speed of 37 km/hour. (Compiled: Spring)
