A PRC video about recent China-Russia naval joint-training in the Sea of Japan in this thread Because, TN.

Just prior the training, the PLAN fleet was observed by the JMSDF passing by Tsushima and into the Sea of Japan on October 11th. The fleet consists of 6 ships; a Type 55 destroyer, a Type 52D destroyer, two Type 54A frigates, a Fuchi-class replenisher, and a sub rescue ship.

On October 18th, the PLAN group of ships (minus the sub rescue ship so perhaps also minus any PLAN sub) passed east through the Tsugaru Strait (between Hokkaido and Honshu) and into the Pacific together with five Russian navy ships that consisted of two Udaloy class destroyers, two Steregushichiy frigates, and a missile observing ship. It was the first time for the JMSDF to observe both those navies passing togerher through Tsugaru Strait.

They stole a design off the West that doesn't exist in the West?

Obviously not, or it would have worked wouldnt it?  :)

The news is that they tested a space capsule, not a warhead.

Balls. From what ive been reading it was travelling too low to be a capsule. There was some allegations it was manoeuvring, I dont know how true that is. Next you will be saying Captain Kirk flew in a hypersonic weapon if you believe that one.

The thing apparently flew around the world and landed within 24 miles of the recovery area.  That looks like a successful test of the hypersonic system to me. 

Flew around the world and missed, yes, I think we established this.

I agree that carriers of 24 miles length are at risk, if the missile attacks the broad side.

The defence industry minister of the time said that the US decided not to offer SSN for the Attack project because Oz has no domestic nuclear industrial base. Nothing has changed. 

Australia decided to build the bestest SSKs in a sub yard with a meh record. 

The Chinese are just a convenient excuse to pull out of a truly Australian cockup.

Here is the thing, it has to work. Because by cancelling with France, Cortez burned his ships. They either make it work or have to do an upgrade of the Collins into the 2060's, with no logical replacement in sight.

Ive a feeling that will focus minds remarkably. It did with our Astute program, and god knows that was as screwed up when it started.
