Military Expert: PLA Submarine’s Performance Nearing that of Western Countries’

Naval expert Li Jie was invited to be a guest expert at the People’s Daily Military Forum. At the Forum, Li discussed the Chinese PLA’s development of submarines. Li Jie said, “The functionality and performance of China’s self-designed submarines are close to those made by the United States, Russia, Germany, and Japan. Only the propelling plant, noise, and some other factors still have some minor gaps as compared with the advanced countries.”
