Xinhua recently reported on the accomplishments of China’s new submarines, based on People’s Liberation Army Pictorial sources. Since the regularization of the Chinese Navy’s blue water training in April, new developments on the Navy’s side have kept rolling in. The recent successful completion of the latest submarine tests included extreme deep water operations, underwater high sailing speed tests, and deep water torpedo launches. All tests passed design and combat goals. The Chinese Navy considers the nuclear submarines the elite of the fleet and a strategic force underwater.
