China Coast Guard ships now carry weapons in South China Sea

China Coast Guard ShipWith long toots, two Chinese coast guard ships, each with displacement exceeding 1,000 tons, left a dock in Guangzhou for the South China Sea to conduct patrols to safeguard China’s sovereignty.

An official of the relevant department revealed that a coast guard ship equipped with weapons “will have greater strength to intensify law enforcement on the sea.”

He disclosed that China will transform many fishery administration and marine surveillance ships into armed coast guard ships.

Guangzhou Daily says in its report that at about 9:30 am on June 11, a large white ship sailed along the Pearl River, tooting. It was full of power and grandeur and the number “3210” painted on its bow and the marks “CHINA COAST GUARD” on its sides looked quite sharp.

That is a Chinese coast guard ship transformed from China’s most advanced fishery administration ship the Fishery Administration 310. It has a displacement of 2,580 tons. The official revealed that compared with its previous shape, the Coast Guard 3210’s greatest difference from its past is that it has been armed. The two machine canons looked quite impressive on its deck.

Closely following it was the Coast Guard 3102, which also sailed along the Pearl River magnificently for the South China Sea. That ship has a displacement of 1,000 tons and is said to have been equipped with a new type of China-made automatic cannon.

In addition to the two ships, the Marine Surveillance 167, Marine Surveillance 168 and Marine Surveillance 169 that previously belonged to China’s Marine Surveillance South Sea Command have respectively been transformed into Coast Guard 3367, Coast Guard 3368 and Coast Guard 3369 and been immediately commissioned.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
