Revealing spotlight on #China's emerging #PLA #Naval facility in #Ream, #Cambodia!

Glad to support @nakashimae & @catecadell's exposé @WashPost.

This will be hot topic at #SLD22 where I'm honored to be a delegate. Let's see what officials say! @IISS_org…
Ships adding up—

"#China’s #navy is already the world’s largest by #s of vessels. The @USNavy has 297 battle-force ships..according to @CRS4Congress, while China has 355 & is projected to have 460 by 2030, according to last year’s @DeptofDefense report."…
But, said Andrew Erickson, research director of the @ChinaMaritime Studies Institute @NavalWarCollege, “as impressive as those numbers are, without a significant network of robust overseas facilities, their ability to use them falls off rapidly w distance from China.” #Ream #Base

CHICOMs guide to “Winning Without Fighting”:
Step 1. Get Navy to reduce its own fleet

Step 2. With less ships, less Sailors needed so pay people to get out early

Step 3. Rinse and Repeat Image
“Shrink instead of grow” is “well aligned” to CHICOM’s visionary ambitions…

-All experts went wrong in their assessment that Ukraine will fall in 3-4 days
-An assessment
-1st & foremost after initial 1-2 days #Russia failed to establish air superiority & air support to ground forces
-Battle for Antonov Apt 10km NW of #Kyiv was failure
-Russia took 2 days to capture
-18 IL-76 fm Russian Pskov Airport had to go back since airfield was damaged
-Russia suffering large aircraft & helo losses(31 & 30) in 1 week
-Russia doesn't hv even localized air superiority
-Aircraft & helo losses unsustainable
-Attack aircraft & helo unable to provide close air support to mechanized forces
-Ukraine using UAVs inflicted huge damage

The Yamato class are best remembered for their massive guns and thick armor. Speed is the last thing on anyone's mind when discussing these dreadnoughts.

However, Japanese designers put considerable thought into the speed of the class. Image
The most famous feature was the bulbous bow.

Contrary to popular belief, the bulbous bow was not a Japanese invention. However, they did introduce what was the most radical design yet, one that offered superior performance to her contemporaries. Image
The effect on performance was significant. At top speed, the bulbous bow reduced the amount of power needed by about 8% or 12,000 shp. Meaning that without the Bow, the Yamato class would need roughly 162,000shp to reach her maximum speed. Image

Now Out in Paperback! “#China Goes to #Sea: #Maritime Transformation in Comparative Historical Perspective”…

@NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime is proud to publish this new version w/ @NavalInstitute @USNIBooks!

Come for the #maps, stay for the #history...
Honored to have #JonathanSpence’s endorsement:

“The maritime #history of #China has long been a neglected field..China Goes to Sea bring[s] that knowledge-gap to an end..will be an indispensable companion to those readers seeking to understand where China’s navy may be heading.”
As European #naval powers & even the @USNavy struggle with ship numbers, #China has gone to #sea.

Represents the reversal of a great historical trend that began 600 years ago, when China withdrew from the seas & European naval expansion spread Western influence around the globe.

Former National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien (@robertcobrien) honored this evening alongside #LA Mayor Eric Garcetti (@ericgarcetti), Admiral Michelle Howard (@honoronline) and UPS (@UPS) by the National Museum of the Surface #Navy at the Battleship #IOWA (@ussiowa)…
Here are highlights from O’Brien’s speech, where he spoke to specific issues regarding the #Navy and measures our nation can take on the diplomatic and economic fronts to preserve our liberty in this new era of great power competition…
“First, we need a 355 ship Navy, and we need it now.   As former PACOM Commander Admiral Davidson stated, the next decade is the period of maximum danger for a conflict with China, especially over Taiwan.”

-#Pakistan & its #Navy becoming butt of jokes for its ridiculosity
-It regularly finds submarines at high seas & that too #IndianNavy submarine
-Finding enemy submarines in real-world situation is like finding needle in haystack
-This clearly shows unprofessionalism of Pak Forces Naval Post
-I hv flown enough missions to debunk claim
-At times finding surface ship becomes Herculean task
-Submarines can be found using physics & array of hi-tech sensors
-Acoustic sensors look for sound pr waves under water
-Electromagnetic sensors identify various parts of spectrum Military Leaks
-Active sensors emit ping & collect returning signal that has reflected back from submarine
-Passive sensors listen noise in environment & hope like hell that it is from the target
-Sonobuoys with hydrophoneare dropped in sea
-They look out for noise & transmit it to aircraft

1. Unfortunately, the statue of #ThomasJefferson that celebrates him for the #DeclarationOfIndependence & religious liberty will be removed from #NewYork #CityHall.

Here's why it should stay (or at least be displayed prominently elsewhere)…
2. Historical context matters. This is not like Confederate statues put up to celebrate the Lost Cause, racism, or slavery.

It is to commemorate the equality of the Declaration of Independence.

While not perfect equality, it was a tremendous step forward in world history.
3. The statue was donated in 1834 by Admiral Uriah Phillips #Levy, a New Yorker and vet of the War of 1812. He was also the first Jewish commodore of the US #Navy

Alright, the United States and its flight deck fantasies Part 1: The Flight Deck Cruisers

The Washington Naval Treaty, as well as the later London Naval treaties, were an incredible achievement for halting (temporarily) a growing naval arms race.
The German and Japanese navies are best known for their attempts to circumnavigate treaty restrictions. However, this does not mean other countries were playing by the rules.

The United States Navy was also looking for ways to circumnavigate treaty restrictions.
One of the more notable attempts to do this was through hybrid cruiser-carriers. Cruiser-sized warships with a large flight deck and a cruiser-level armament.

Such warships were desired for a variety of reasons.

In an early post, we briefly touched upon high velocity, shallow arc and lower velocity, higher arc guns.

While discussions on muzzle velocity are typically examined from a range, accuracy, or penetration angle, one other factor existed that played an equal if not larger role.
This factor is barrel wear. Something that influenced naval design for several navies.

The forces required to force a heavy naval shell through a barrel are tremendous. The intense heat and pressure places a great deal of strain on the barrel
Each shell that is forced down the barrel strips a tiny bit of the barrel along with it. This damage is typically towards the breech of the gun, concentrated towards the start of the rifling. However, successive shots allow the damage to extend further down the barrel..

Three Chinese navy ships, including a Renhai-class missile destroyer, were spotted sailing near Tsushima, an island in Nagasaki Prefecture in southwestern Japan, according to Japan's Defense Ministry.
According to the ministry, the three warships did not enter Japanese territorial waters. Renhai is one of China's most powerful destroyer classes. According to the ministry's Joint Staff,
three Chinese warships were discovered traveling northeast at a point about 250 kilometers southwest of Tsushima around 11 a.m. Thursday by a P-1 patrol aircraft of the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force and two MSDF ships (2 a.m. GMT).

The @WhiteHouse was one of hundreds of landmarks across America to turn green for #StPatricksDay. As is well known, the building. was designed by Kilkenny architect James Hoban. But this is far from the only Irish imprint on the DC landscape. A short thread on a long history. Image
Walk into the @bankofireland in Parliament House & you might be reminded of the @uscapitol. The ceiling of what's now Statuary Hall resembles Parliament House because Sir Edward Lovett Pearce's plans were closely studied when designing the Capitol. ImageImage
The oldest Catholic church in Washington DC, St Patrick's, was established in 1794 to serve the Irish-American stonemasons who were building the @WhiteHouse and @uscapitol. Like @POTUS @JoeBiden, the founding priest Fr Caffrey was a proud Mayo man! Image

1/9: The #UK government will soon publish its #IntegratedReview of defence, security, development & #ForeignPolicy. This is an important inflection point: we need a comprehensive, credible vision of the #GlobalBritain agenda after #Brexit. What to expect?.. a thread..
2/9: The #IntegratedReview will set principles to guide individual policies, advocating agile, global British reach in support of democratic values. Johnson’s strap-line is “#UK as a force for good”. But lofty principles will only be credible if hard, practical choices are made.
3/9: Much will be orthodox: supporting effective #multilateralism, rule of law, open #trade. I expect strong commitment to the #US relationship (whatever some say, #Biden is a godsend for Johnson) & lots about the fashionable but nebulous concept of an “#IndoPacific tilt”.
