Well done - but to be honest, Chinese navy is still very weak - the main problem is, that it has no aircraft carrier. So it can not match with the US navy or even with russian or french navy...


Posted By: sinosword
Date Posted: 31-Dec-2005 at 16:31
we know that. current chinese navy is not prepared for war, but for testing new equipment and new stratics, training skillful sailmen. it's not war time now, we don't need to waste too much money on it. but still, under the very limit fund, chinese navy can achieve this level. it's not easy.

as for the aircraft carrier, a training carrier is going to be in service soon.

ENDURANCE of the Shakelton Expidition.

The Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition set out from London on August 1, 1914 with the goal of crossing the Antarctic from a location near Vahsel Bay on the south side of the Weddell Sea, reach the South Pole and then continue to Ross Island on the opposite side of the continent. The expedition's goal had to be abandoned when the ship, Endurance, was beset by sea ice short of its goal of Vahsel Bay. It was later crushed by the pack ice. The ship's crew and the expedition personnel endured an epic journey by sledge across the Weddell Sea pack and then boat to Elephant Island. Upon arrival at Elephant Island off the Antarctic Peninsula, they rebuilt one of their small boats and Shackleton with five others set sail for South Georgia to seek help. This remarkable journey navigated by Frank Worsley in the 6.7-meter boat James Caird through the Drake Passage to South Georgia in the late Antarctic Fall (April and May) is perhaps without rival. They landed on the southern coast of South Georgia and then crossed the spine of the island in an equally remarkable 36-hour journey. The 22 men who remained on Elephant Island were rescued by the Chilean ship Yelcho after three other failed attempts on August 30, 1916 (22 months after departing from South Georgia). Everyone from Endurance survived.

"Endurance"very recomandable
