  1. The thing to look out for with China’s naval buildup is how many ships are they building. This might be the biggest, but there are a lot more smaller ones.

  2. Are they naming it Bismarck?

  3. Time to get the “Mighty Mo” and “New Jersey” out of mothballs.

  4. I guess you Yanks better change your password for the drawings of it then. Probably too late…

  5. That’s a lot of cardboard.

  6. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/01/12/asia-pacific/china-navy-commissions-biggest-most-powerful-warship/#.XhuE7MhKhPY) reduced by 91%. (I’m a bot)

    > China's navy commissioned its biggest and most advanced surface warship yet, the Nanchang guided-missile destroyer, on Sunday morning in the port city of Qingdao, state media reported.

    > Collin Koh, a research fellow and maritime security expert at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore, told The Japan Times that the warship is "By far the most powerful surface combatant" in China's navy, outside of its aircraft carriers.

    > With more Type 055s planned, China is the only known country to be building such a warship.

  7. Would love to know how the Chinese have solved the issue of railguns tearing themselves apart after a few shots.
