China to release war simulation video game used by the army

China plans to release a war simulation video game for its public, called the Glorious Mission that reportedly targets US troops.

 The "red" game made headlines earlier this year as the first video game training simulation for China's armed forces. The trailer of the first-person shooter war simulation game and its videos had become popular on the microblog networks.

hinese netizens think that the Japanese overreaction to Chinese navy training

Chinese naval ships in international waters in the western Pacific Plan for routine training, and in a few days ago crossed through the Japanese island of Okinawa and the high seas between the Miyako Island waterways. However, this has caused Japan's "concern", the Japanese right-wing media is advocating tough with China, saying the United States and Japan should prevent the Chinese navy's ocean-going training for normalization. World Wide Web do survey respondents over Jiucheng users that Japan's "overreaction."

U.S. worried about China will copy the technology of stealth UAV RQ-170

The loss of a U.S. RQ-170 stealth drone over eastern Iran has led to speculation that the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) will eventually find its way into Chinese hands. Access to the drone could allow China to use reverse engineering to incorporate key technologies into its own indigenous aerospace systems and to develop countermeasures that would make it harder for U.S. stealth UAVs and aircraft to operate near China. Iran has significant political, military, and financial incentives to provide such access, reversing the usual flow of technology from China to Iran.

China has the ability to reverse crack the technology of U.S. RQ-170 UAV

China can come into contact with the US-made RQ-170 Stealth reconnaissance from Iran, China most likely get  top-secret technology of American through reverse engineering.

UAV RQ-170 U.S. troops deployed in Afghanistan 

Recently there are rumors that China may eventually be exposed to intercept Iranian UAV RQ-170, if this happens, China will be expected to master a number of key technologies and use them for their aerospace plan, including the development of the Chinese border to detect flew stealth fighters and unmanned aerial vehicles of the United States counter-measures. Some experts believe that both from a political perspective, or from the military and economic point of view, Iran has enough power to share RQ-170 with China.

Iran showed the U.S. RQ-170 UAV that was captured 

Although Iranian officials claim that Iraq had the ability to break the RQ-170 stand-alone technology, but experts believe that Iraq may not have such capabilities. And allow access to RQ-170 Chinese experts will obviously benefit from Iran - which will likely get more from the Chinese military technology, while the nuclear issue because of the confrontation with the West have to get China's diplomatic support.

From the early 1980s, China has been a reliable arms supplier Iran. China provided Iran with a wide variety of military equipment, including light-duty J -7 fighter aircraft, high-speed patrol boats and anti-ship missiles, while China's ballistic missile program, Iran has also provided assistance. While in China between 2000 and 2010 arms exports to Iraq has declined over the previous 10 years, but China continues to help Iran develop a number of major weapons programs. Iranian media have reported that Russian and Chinese officials have made contact with the U.S. UAV's request.

In the relationship between China and the former Soviet Union broke down in 1960, China began to actively use the reverse engineering approach to improve its Soviet-made weapons and equipment. In addition, China via a third country access to several types of American aircraft and aerospace technology. One of the most notable example is the Chinese who come into contact with the US-Pakistan air force F-16 fighter. Although it is difficult for Chinese people to understand the extent of F-16 to make judgments, but by some public analysis of the material, the Chinese people fully able to understand in detail the structure of this US-made fighter. The Islamabad is also possible to provide China with some of the F-16 subsystems, and to protect the latter study in detail the structure of this aircraft.

In the last two decades, China's military aviation sector has made considerable progress and has been able to develop very complex aerospace systems. Therefore, China is fully capable of RQ-170 for imitation. For example, Chinese-made J -10 fighter jet extensively uses modern metal alloys and composite materials, while the prototype of J -20 stealth fighter appeared once again proved that China has the ability to use new types of aircraft structures stealth technology.

China fielded small batch of high-speed reconnaissance aircrafts, which have strong combat capability

Chinese air force and naval air force has begun to equip small batch of the new F-8FR reconnaissance aircrafts.
F-8FR reconnaissance aircraft is researched on the base of the F-8F fighter. the difference from earlier F-8R, J-8FR on the 23 mm cannon were removed, replaced by the photographic equipment.

In addition to reconnaissance tasks, J-8FR still have a strong combat capability. The aircraft can carry PL-8 and PL-12 missile. In addition, J-8FR way can be extended by air refueling flight distance.

Chinese Navy Weapons Ambitions

The new phase of Chinese naval development could include even more new weapons and sensors than the previous phase, if the recent launch of another specialized testing ship is any indication.
Last month, the PLA Navy launched “Ship 893,” its third new weapons trials vessel since 2005. Trials ships are equipped with systems to track and analyze new missiles and sensors during testing.

China's first aircraft carrier held its first sea trial on Wednesday, 10 August 2011. Officials said the trial was on schedule and that afterwards the ship will dock for further work. The August 2009 US Office of Naval Intelligence report "The People's Liberation Army Navy: A Modern Navy With Chinese Characteristics" had stated that "This carrier is expected to become operational in the 2010 to 2012 timeframe, and will likely be used to develop basic proficiencies in carrier operations.

China Base a Threat to India Navy.

There’s been much talk in the media of an apparent offer by the Seychelles of a base for Chinese ships deployed to the Gulf of Aden and the West Indian Ocean, to help combat piracy. While it’s not yet clear if the offer has been accepted, Chinese media reports suggest that Beijing is actively considering it as a “resupply” base.

China to consider Seychelles port offer, denies naval base plan

China said it is considering an offer by the Seychelles to use its ports for resupplying and refueling naval vessels

The Chinese Defense Ministry said, however, that its presence in the Seychelles would not rise to the level of a "naval base" and would be used mostly to support Chinese vessels guarding against Somalia pirates.
