    That top one is French-made Lafayette class. Maybe with the Taiwan Navy.

    Yeah saw that...a bit scarey. The Chinese story of it being a spacecraft could be true...they are moving quickly in that direction. And China would usually happily tell the world its a hyper sonic missile if it was...The US and Australia are co-developing hyper sonic missiles, thats not a secret.
    I would have thought a laser would be the perfect counter to these weapons...fired from satelites (Yes you Americans have them shhh). Even fired from the ground at a distance could destroy these if the tracking can cope.
    I have a feeling that missiles will soon become useless...

    BTW, I heard from the Finnish news that the US has moved troops to Taiwan and the two carriers are placed in the Philippine sea (?). This would mean war, I think, if the Chinese would try to land and occupy Taiwan.....

    WSJ News Exclusive | U.S. Troops Have Been Deployed in Taiwan for at Least a Year

    WASHINGTON—A U.S. special-operations unit and a contingent of Marines have been secretly operating in Taiwan to train military forces there, U.S. officials said, part of efforts to shore up the island’s defenses as concern regarding potential Chinese aggression mounts.

    [NTD News, June 15, 2021]The situation in the Taiwan Strait continues to be tense. The US Navy said on the 15th that the US aircraft carrier strike group led by the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan has entered the South China Sea to perform routine missions.

    Regretfully, the photo is a 2016 shot of the John C Stennis & Ronald Reagan operating in the Philippine Sea.

    A pity this has been moved...i would prefer the "hate" comments be deleted. Its a subject that directly involves the US, UK and Australia or about 98% of the WW2 forum community and meant as a way of keeping updated on important developments. This was never meant as an "anti China" thread. Never mind.

    Interesting. Just watched a document on our tv about him and China. Not very friendly.

    Narendra Damodardas Modi (Gujarati: [ˈnəɾendɾə dɑmodəɾˈdɑs ˈmodiː] ([​IMG]listen); born 17 September 1950)[a] is an Indian politician serving as the 14th and current prime minister of India since 2014. Modi was the chief minister of Gujarat from 2001 to 2014 and is the Member of Parliament from Varanasi. He is a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its National Democratic Alliance (NDA). He is also a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a right-wing Hindu nationalist paramilitary volunteer organisation. He is the first prime minister to have been born after India's independence in 1947 and the second prime minister not belonging to the Indian National Congress to have won two consecutive elections, as well as a majority in both terms in the Indian lower house of parliament.

    Modi is determined to build a Hindu nation and is not afraid of China. That is looking like a war in the very near future. Unfortunately. I just truly realized this due to the document. The nation will follow Modi wherver he goes.
