British submarines patrolled the East China Sea, China preparing to hunt

The British Royal Navy’s Vanguard nuclear submarine recently appeared in South Korean ports. According to reports from South Korean media, the Royal Navy will use South Korean ports to supply supplies and also conduct coronavirus detection.

The British Royal Navy’s nuclear attack submarine passed through the Strait of Malacca on July 25 and entered the South China Sea to perform a “free navigation” military mission, and then began a battle cruise in the East China Sea. The British Royal Navy Vanguard nuclear submarine is part of the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier strike group. The British aircraft carrier is currently docked at the Naval Base in Guam. Since August 6, there has been no follow-up action on the British aircraft carrier.

The British aircraft carrier changed its scheduled itinerary and came to Guam to dock in the United States. After the British aircraft carrier strike group ended its operations in the South China Sea, it would go to Japan for visits, but it suddenly appeared at the US military base in Guam. The British Royal Navy’s Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier also entered the South China Sea on July 25 in a high-profile manner, but now it is quite calm. The rest of the escorting ships have dispersed, including the vigilante nuclear submarine, which has conducted a single-handed battle cruise in the East China Sea. And arrived at Busan Port, South Korea on August 11 for stop and rest work.

From July 25 to August 11, the British Royal Navy attack nuclear submarine has been dormant under the water. The Royal Navy has not announced the specific itinerary of the British submarine, but the appearance of the British submarine in the Port of Busan in South Korea means that The British submarine entered the East China Sea and the Yellow Sea.

While the Chinese media believes that if the Royal Navy’s nuclear submarine dared to cross the red line, the consequences would be four words: burial on the bottom of the sea. When British submarines performed missions in the Asia-Pacific region, the People’s Liberation Army’s Air Submersible-200 made a public appearance. During this period, the Air Submersible-200 conducted a drill to drop depth charges. This is a warning to the Royal Navy. Now the People’s Liberation Army Many theaters are equipped with air-submarine-200 anti-submarine patrol aircraft.

The KQ-200 MPA is an improved version of the Y-8 medium-sized tactical transport aircraft. It has a variety of detection capabilities. It can detect underwater submarines through magnetic anomaly detectors and floating sonar systems. The -200 has a variety of strike capabilities. In addition to depth charges, it can also carry advanced guided torpedoes to launch strikes against underwater targets. At present, the KQ-200 MPA operates in the South China Sea, the East China Sea and the Yellow Sea. Therefore, it can continuously observe underwater targets. The Royal Navy’s alert-type attack nuclear submarine is not presumptuous.


The People’s Liberation Army not only has the air-submarine-200 high-tech anti-submarine patrol aircraft, but also has equipment for attack nuclear submarines such as 093. Recently, the British media disclosed that the People’s Liberation Army used the 093 attack nuclear submarine to “watch on” the British aircraft carrier. The Royal Navy claims that the “interaction” with the People’s Liberation Army is “professional and safe”, reflecting the Royal Navy’s battle cruises in the Asia-Pacific region. The United Kingdom is very cautious as well Chinese navy, both are trying to avoid any possible confrontation.
