Reputation of Chinese 093 nuclear submarine built only 2-3 ships cruise the Indian Ocean may
data for: the U.S. media that the Chinese navy 093 submarines obviously moved south, may have to move into the Indian Ocean. According to the U.S. Global Strategy
website reported on October 26, China 093 nuclear attack submarines have recently been found parked in the new naval base on Hainan Island. The base is located in northern Vietnam, India will definitely nervous, because more and more Chinese warships in the Indian Ocean. Until a year ago, as speculation, as China’s only confirmed the first one 093-type submarines in service in December 2006. The official point of view, is a secret nuclear submarine, and few Chinese nuclear submarine into the sea, it is difficult to really distinguish the new nuclear submarines in service, not only after the water stop at the pier, waiting for the future. But now, 093 submarines obviously moved south, may have to move into the Indian Ocean.
093-class attack submarine has 30 years looks a lot like Russia, “Victor” Ⅲ attack submarine design. Followed by 094 SSBN is like in the “Victor” Ⅲ type based on the addition of a missile tank. This increase in attack on a nuclear submarine to carry ballistic missile tank is an old-fashioned practice of practice – the United States in the 1950 production, when the first one SSBN pioneered the use of this approach. China seems to be that the new attack submarine to use the same means, to create a displacement of 9,000 tons of strategic ballistic missile submarines. It would appear that the primary task seems to be the construction of 094, because the bomb has to hit the United States, compared to the new attack submarine, allowing China to have more say in foreign affairs. The first one 094 SSBN entered service about a year ago.
Although there have been two 7000 tons displacement launched the 093, but in China it seems hard to impress the outside world. Expectations of the outside of the 094 not so high. 093 attack submarine noise considerably, and there are many kinds of small problems. This means that the future of China may only build two to three 093 attack submarines, they will put more resources into the next level of attack submarines – 095 R & D production. 093 and 094 have gone through 10 years of development and construction. 094-related work began in the 1990s. Over the years, the only outsiders to know that the Chinese in this design, there are many technical problems. 094 is a modern SSBN, it uses technology from Russia, and summarized the early Chinese nuclear submarine built up some experience in technology research and development. China to build a reliable nuclear submarines had spent a hard time, but they are determined to obtain these necessary technical means. U.S. intelligence experts believe that China is building five SSBNs 094.
Google map of China’s image, you can see the music in the eastern suburbs of Hainan Island underground outside the airport hangar. Commercial satellite images also reveal a military building in Hainan detailed structure. The most obvious example is China’s Sanya built near Yulin submarine base. The base has underground parking facilities – at the coast through the mountains to dig tunnels to achieve, to facilitate the nuclear and diesel-powered submarines docked.
on this base in 2002 after rumors spread up. At that time, local people began to notice all the construction operations and construction sites around the tight security measures. Underground facilities not only to protect ships from air and wave erosion, but also makes maintenance and modification secret. Airport Tunnel also used the same method, all the passers-by can see on the road. However, there is no convincing evidence like the picture. (Compiled: Dongfeng)
