The network compared the replenishment of the fleets of the United States and China for 2021


In the past year, the largest military fleets on the planet have grown even more powerful. They were replenished with new surface ships and vessels, as well as submarines. The network compared the changes that took place in the US Navy and the PLA of the PRC.


The Chinese navy is expanding its capacity at an impressive pace. In 2021, the PLA Navy added 16 ships and one submarine: two UDC Project 075, three destroyers (destroyers) of Project 055, two destroyers (destroyers) of Project 052D, nine corvettes of Project 056A and one SSBN of Project 094A. The total tonnage of the new replenishment is 170 thousand tons.


During this time, the US Navy was replenished with only three surface warships and an expeditionary floating base. The following were transferred to the fleet: the 71st destroyer (destroyer) "Frank Petersen Jr." Arleigh Burke, two Independence-class coastal ships, USS Oakland (LCS-24) and USS Mobile (LCS-26), and USS Miguel Keith Expeditionary Mobile Base (ESB- 5) Lewis B. Puller class.

It is easy to see that the Americans' successes in military shipbuilding are very modest in comparison with the obvious achievements of the Chinese. The US Navy currently has 294 pennants and is the largest on the planet. But the growth of the American fleet is not observed (there is a slight reduction and replacement of old ships and submarines with new ones). Therefore, in 2025, the PLA Navy may significantly outnumber the American fleet. Beijing will have 378 pennants, and there is little doubt about that given the pace of Chinese shipbuilding.

    Это поверхностное арифметическое сравнение двух флотов. Флот структура комплексная. И состоит из многих составных частей. Например из морской авиации. Которая в ВМС НОАК довольно таки отсталая. Как и китайский подплав. При рекордном наращивании числа кораблей и судов , командованию ВМС НОАК предстоит лет 20 повышать оперативную подготовку штабов соединений и обьединений , развивать навыки взаимодействия между ними. Заслуживает уважения грамотный подход ЦК КПК к организации военно-морского строительства. С опорой на свою береговую структуру. Создавать ВМС НОАК начали с берега, с торгового флота, как источника обученного резерва ВМС , с создания мощной судостроительной и судоремонтной промышленности. Которую не смогли создать в СССР.

      What is this lie. The USSR had a powerful shipbuilding industry.

        The shipbuilding industry (military and civil), the ship repair industry (military and civil) could not do without the help of enterprises in Greece (repair of universal supply vehicles, GISU), Germany (construction of gas carriers), GDR (construction of refrigerated transport vehicles, GISU), Yugoslavia (construction of tankers of the type Proletarskaya Pobeda, Cheboksary, repair of submarines 641 projects, SKR), Finland (construction of rescue ocean-going tugs of the Navy, floating workshops, GISU, repair of ships of the SZRP), Poland (repair and construction of RZK, floating workshops), Bulgaria (repair of KFOR, submarines 633 projects ), Tunisia (docking of floating workshops, diesel submarines), Austria (construction of river-sea vessels).

    Foreign pennies need to be worked out day and night. They are very afraid that Russia will attack, we urgently need to write new fakes.)
