The information stolen was stored on the contractor’s unclassified network despite being “highly sensitive nature,” according to information obtained by the Washington Post.

According to the report, 614 gigabytes of material on a closely held project known as Sea Dragon were taken. Contracted for the military organization Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Sea Dragon aims to develop a supersonic anti-ship missile for use on U.S. submarines.


The spying by Chinese during Obama Era was so rampant and wide that the joke was Obama was giving Chinese all the technology it wants under the table in guise of spying :rotfl:

@Singha, that was inspiring. Though Germany is as far away from Cheen as possible. The former is among the greatest TFTA warrior races if not the greatest, the latter builds a lot of stuff but eats lots of rice and mainly shopkeeps, typical SRE.

Bollywood is number ONE in China’s box office this weekend.

This is one invasion that’s successful (though I prefer a military at Doklam.)

Akshay Kumar's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha tops opening weekend in China box-office; earns Rs 61.1 cr in three days

Akshay Kumar's satirical comedy-drama Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (TEPK), which landed in mainland screens on 8 June, has topped the opening weekend in China box-office with a cumulative three-day gross of $9.05 million (Rs 61.1 crore), holding off competition from Disney/Marvel's blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, the local smash hit How Long Will I Love U and Jean-Claude Van Damme's action thriller Black Water.

The US Navy said there is no way for anyone to properly train and crew that many destroyers in such a short span of time. So we know their strategy is not better warfighters during combat but greater numbers during peace.

But it won’t hurt them if they don’t have to fight. And in peace time they pay for themselves by providing persistent presence in bodies of water that Cheen wants to create fait accompli.

It is not just destroyers. Their frigate and corvette program are even more insane.

Janes reports their 41st Type 056 corvette to enter service since 2012:
http://www.janes.com/article/80806/image-suggests-china-s-41st-type-056-corvette-may-have-entered-service

And this is their 30th Type 054A frigate since 2008:
Image

For comparison, since 2007 we’ve added 6 Saryu OPVs, 4 Kamorta corvettes and three Talwars frigates. If you’re not keeping count, it’s 71 frigates and corvettes for them to 13 for us over the past decade (and the Saryus are very lightly armed compared to a chini corvette so it is even worse than the numbers.)

The chinis find a design they like and they productionize the sh1t out of it. They not only have more money but they take advantage of long production runs to reduce per unit cost.

Is it a true mathematical build up or also the new builds also replacing a lot of retiring stuff.
Does our build programme meet our needs ?

It's okay guys. HAL is aiming to produce a Tejas IOC every 9 months.

More seriously, we should stop comparing ourselves to China. They have 5X larger economy and 3.5X larger defence budget. We should focus on building the right alliances, not matching their ship building pace (since that's not an option).

yeah lets avoid this d1ck comparative exercise.
its pakistan's perrrogative to do that.

however all said and done. Kudos to the chinese for producing at an effecient rate that suits their requirements and tempo.
At the least and most, I clap and wish them well on their continued success.


However I still laugh when they begin with

My best friends are
"North Korea, Pakistan ... and Maldives"

Yeah well done.

Ok no more d1ck measuring with ships. I’ll move onto comparing the size of balls with aircraft . . .

But you know, if Cheen had stayed Maoist and shitpoor like they were in the 1970s then we would have been happy being shitpoor along with them. When they took off in the 1980s they took us with them to be perfectly honest. We were content to play second best to goras but to some chinkies? No way.

Some comparison is always good. The chinis do the same with the Americans, the Japanese, the Koreans
and the Taiwanese. Those are the people that drive them. They in turn can drive us.

Hell of a lot better rival with the PRC than Pakiland. I embrace them as a challenge.

Sometimes I wonder if conflict between nations is a darwinian urge to spur on your neighbour to greater heights.

It prevents them from slacking off.

What info is there on plan naval sailor training and command officer schools? Not as visible but vital asset

They might be quietly supersizing on that too

State media has quoted military experts as saying China plans to build at least six carriers.

The ACC returned to dock in five days. From the article: "Chinese state media declared it had completed ‘all of its assigned tasks’.".

What was it's main assigned task? Check if it floats?

Chinese are all about optics, no substance.

Sure. Then, they too will have seven or eight fleets. To match the US, of course. But first they must make sure that the carriers float.

Eh, we always say that and then a few years later they are floating the stupid thing in the IOR.

Their stuff are at the very least functional and in numbers so they can salami slice. And unless we go to war, we can’t take advantage of quality and crew training.

The chinis have perfected SRE (Short Rice Eaters) strategy against TFTA Amreekis and Samurais. Build shitloads and avoid actual fighting.
