12 secret weapons of ChinaBy Vika https://pictolic.com/en/article/12-secret-weapons-of-china
The scale of China in terms of population and area of its territory has long been no surprise to anyone. The Chinese are very developed and hardworking people. No wonder they say: "If you do something well, then there will always be one Chinese who will do it even better." This also applies to military equipment and weapons, the development of which is kept secret by Chinese engineers, but not to say very strictly. That is why today we invite you to get acquainted with the 12 types of secret and most powerful weapons and equipment invented by the Chinese.
1. Aircraft carrier CV-17
A new aircraft carrier from China, capable of carrying about 48 aircraft and 12 helicopters and lifting approximately 60-70 thousand tons on board. The CV-17 version will be a new, improved version of the CV-16 aircraft carrier, but development is still in progress and it will take several years before it launches.
2. Nuclear submarine
The fact that China already has several powerful nuclear submarines and nuclear submarines with missiles in its arsenal is no secret. Their fleet plays a fairly significant role in the entire Pacific region, but they honestly try not to reveal their new projects to the world. Another new submarine, 093B Shang, managed to slip out of the spotlight. So far, almost nothing is known about this submarine, but the fact that it will be able to fire missiles vertically and be fast and quiet already says a lot.
3. Intermediate-range ballistic missiles
The DF-26 anti-ship ballistic missile is a new addition to the Dongfeng series of missiles that China has been using for quite some time. The DF-26 is capable of attacking both on land and at sea. The range ranges from medium to large. The American intelligence services so far have very little information about these missiles, so while there is no exact data about these missiles, they are rather frightening objects.
4. Long-range strategic bomber
China does not keep secret the presence of the H-6K bomber in its arsenal and does not hesitate to say that it is already preparing to develop a new, more modern bomber with a different range from the previous one. So far, no one knows what the updated version of the Chinese bomber will look like: by what indicators it will become better and more accurate, or maybe it will be a completely different, independent development, but there can be no doubt that it will definitely be powerful.
5. Seaplane AG600
Did you know that China has the largest seaplane in the world? Yes, the development is not new, because seaplanes were used during the Second World War, but in the event of a new war, the presence of such a modern seaplane will be an additional advantage. In this matter, the Celestial Empire is a clear leader: their AG600 seaplane is capable of accommodating 50 people and flying more than 5 thousand km. and is in the air for 12 hours continuously.
6. Hypersonic glider DF-ZF
Without too much modesty, this glider is the dream of any country! Chinese DF-ZF moves at a speed of 6500-11000 kilometers per hour and exceeds the speed of sound by 5 times. In addition, this miracle machine has already been successfully tested about 7 times and managed to instill alarm in the heart of the American military command.
7. naval mines
Not the most convenient and not the most advanced development, which not only China but also North Korea, Iran, the USA, and even Russia have in their arsenal. The use of such mines may not always be justified. placing them at the bottom of the sea for storage is another challenge. Of course, you can drop them off from an airplane, but this is not only very expensive, but also unsafe, because it can cause a lot of suspicion among the enemy, and then there will be no point in using these mines.
8. Weapons for cyberattacks
In some plans, China is somewhat behind the United States and cybernetics is one such area, but they are doing their best to catch up. Of the latter, China has developed three secret weapons capable of hacking and mobilizing facilities for military operations online.
9. Anti-satellite missile
Today, China is one of the few countries with the ability to shoot down satellites in space. More recently, the Pentagon learned of new missile tests in China. In addition, China is also testing weapons in Mongolia. This information is still inaccurate and creates a certain areola of mystery around China, and this, of course, cannot but frighten.
10. Strategic transport aircraft XIAN Y-20
This plane has another, more interesting name - "Plump Girl". It is a military cargo aircraft with a wide fuselage and a 200-ton weight. In the near future, China the development of several new aircraft comparable in size to legendary aircraft such as the Mriya and the passenger Airbus A380.
11. Nuclear weapon
It's no secret that China is one of the nuclear powers, in addition to possessing chemical and biological weapons. They started their nuclear program back in 1955, and since then every year they have been increasing their nuclear potential. And although China has promised not to be the first to enter a nuclear war, fear and threat, it seems, will always hang over other countries.
12. Army of China
Despite all the latest developments and grandiose plans of China to create the most powerful weapon for military operations, the most important advantage of this country will always be people: countless soldiers who have been serving in the Chinese army since the age of 18, engineers and technicians engaged in weapon design, as well as others. specialists and ideological inspirers, all as one devoted to one national leader.
