  1. It's Germany's first venture here with its navy. There are other recent build ups by European countries. Obviously the UK is sending the QE with a battlegroup out here. The other noticeable step up was France as there have sent a number of vessels out here as well for several joint-training with all the QUAD countries. If Germany came out here in a more bold manner, it would be easy to trigger an argument for the PRC side calling it a return to European bullies. It's already a fairly large increase by European countries. The whole China military aspect containment is going to be the long term.
  2. The Asahi-class emphasizes on ASW in its design, although only two of them in the class, they entered service in 2018 and 2019. Technically catagorized as DD in JMSDF for destroyer. Frigate would be FF. Yet with a full load at 6,800 tons, its quite lighter then the Type 26 frigate (any version). Yet, they all have the same length though, at about 150 meters.
  3. A long drought of no four seasons between its brief starhood and its revival in the 1900s.
  4. A Japanese destroyer and Taiwanese frigate shadowed a PRC frigate passing between Taiwan and Yonaguni. https://www.taiwannews.com.tw/en/news/4193472
  5. A recent eleven minute split into 3 part introduction video with some footage of of the Shandong. Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbUyF0f7EP8 Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6jyNOpkiOQ
  6. There are still those hundreds of PRC vessels in the Philippines EEZ mentioned in the article posted by B1 on March 21st. "China, my friend, how politely can I put it? Let me see… O…GET THE FUCK OUT," Locsin said in a tweet on his personal account. "What are you doing to our friendship? You. Not us. We're trying. You. You're like an ugly oaf forcing your attentions on a handsome guy who wants to be a friend; not to father a Chinese province…", Locsin said. https://www.rappler.com/nation/teodoro-locsin-tweet-china-sea-dispute-may-3-2021
  7. Yeah, there are some interesting post exchanges 5 to 6 years ago surrounding these two posts that are related and were indicating China's raise in becoming the largest trade partner for many countries: (December 2015) https://www.tanknet.org/index.php?/topic/39564-chinas-peaceful-rise/&do=findComment&comment=1213651 (July 2016) https://www.tanknet.org/index.php?/topic/39564-chinas-peaceful-rise/&do=findComment&comment=1255211
  8. The PLAN carrier heli counterpart with its radar deployed got its picture taken by a scrambled JASDF fighter as the Liaoning lifted one of them off while near the Ryukyu islands. https://www.mod.go.jp/js/Press/press2021/press_pdf/p20210427_01.pdf
  9. Maybe bring the question down to basic level components would still be substantial enough to warrant the question. Basic level components would be the main gun and its ammunition, the engine, the armor, some of the electronics such as the semiconductors and visual displays, and sensors. Other components such as the MGs, other drive train parts, suspension, other electronic parts suchs as buttons and wires, lights, etc, are probably easy and cheap to get from anywhere and are inconsequential in relation to other countries so can't become strategically sensitive.
  10. Limitation doesn't really describe the cause of being slighted. It was the ratio. Of course winning an arms race would not have been possible so the terms as they were got the agreement. Aside from accepting 5:5:3, one other thing lost was the condition to end the GB-Japan alliance which consequently surely enhenced the desire for 10:10:7.
  11. A 4 wheeled unmanned vehicle that launches NSM was shown. https://www.navalnews.com/naval-news/2021/04/here-is-our-first-look-at-the-usmcs-nmesis-nsm-being-launched-from-an-unmanned-jltv/
  12. The talking heads talking about QE and its coming trip from 36:50 to 49:40. https://youtu.be/Jl0e_p6G8WI
  13. Seems to be true. I don't see anything saying otherwise. Some links that mention it. Yukikaze's commanding officer was Masamichi Terauchi http://lst4001.blog31.fc2.com/blog-entry-245.html?sp https://dic.nicovideo.jp/t/a/ジョンストン(艦これ) https://ja.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/雪風_(駆逐艦)
  14. That's some great footage.
