Satellite images reveal that China is developing a robot ‘Sea Hunter’ warship capable of shooting torpedoes at a top-secret military station.
Satellite images reveal that China has created secret “Sea Hunter” boats capable of shooting torpedoes at a top-secret naval station.
The photos appear to show a new model of Uncrewed Surface Vessels (USVs) anchored at a peaceful coastal pier on China’s north coast.
According to UNSI News, China built their JARI USV fleet in 2018 and is reported to be storing them at an isolated pier in Dalian.
JARI, dubbed a “mini-destroyer,” is a 50-foot-long vehicle with a remote weapon system that can fire surface-to-air missiles and light torpedoes, according to the site.
It was created by the China State Shipbuilding Corporation and uses cutting-edge phased-array radars, electro-optical sensors, and sonar.
The most recent variant is 20 feet longer and features a more significant “superstructure” designed to produce a sharper arrangement.
According to experts, China is storing another secret battleship at the newly-built location, which was built in 2017.
According to USNI News, the pier is utilized “intermittently” by the People’s Liberation Army Navy and has previously harbored submarines, including the Type-035 Ming Class boat, which was photographed undergoing dock-side ballast tests.
The Xiaopingdao naval facility, which houses part of China’s submarine navy, is only nine miles distant.
In Maxar’s photos, another USV of the same length was discovered.
This USV, which is also roughly 70 feet long, is more like a large catamaran and has many of the same killer qualities as a JARI.
China’s USVs have been compared to the US Navy’s Sea Hunter vessels by analysts.
The Sea Hunter fleet is the US Navy’s latest generation of unmanned warships, costing £147 million per ship.
These stealthy boats are built for extreme invisibility and can run on their own utilizing optical and radar guidance, with the ability to cruise “from San Diego to Guam and back to Pearl Harbor on a tank of gas.”
China’s marine build-up comes as it invests billions of dollars in stealth aircraft, hypersonic missiles, and even terminator warriors in a bid to prepare for a high-tech battle with the United States, according to experts.
Its “Carrier Killer” missile is made up of a rocket that flies to a height of around 25 miles above the ground before launching a Hypersonic Glide Vehicle (HGV).
It is armed with warheads and moves at 10 times the speed of sound, with such pinpoint accuracy that analysts believe only artificial intelligence and computer systems will be able to stop it.
China is also building a new powerful stealth bomber capable of delivering nuclear weapons to major US facilities in the Pacific.
Drones, which can fly at hypersonic speeds, are also a vital part of China’s high-tech agenda to compete with America… Brinkwire News in a Nutshell
