    No need to be agressive. Maybe it's also not the right place to discuss this.

    Guys ... I hope You don't mind to step in, but if you both have some private issues, try to settle them behind the public lines or leave it.

    This is a news thread and this constant discussion of images, if they are fine enough or not including certain private side-kicks are annoying.


    Best,

    I agree

    Back to topic

    First half of 2019 China launched 12 warships

    In 2017 they launched 16 warships

    2018 they launched 28

    So slower pace this year compared to last

    Maybe it will pick up later on

    That’s 56 launched in 30 months

    Tonnage launched is a more fair comparison then numbers.

    China did launch 16 warships in the first half of 2019, but four of them were for export.

    I expect numbers to go down but tonnage to go up as the Type 056 contract runs out.

    It's still looking in pristine condition. It'll surely bring nostalgia to some people who came to know the ship in a long time past.

    COLOMBO, July 8 (Xinhua) -- The China-gifted frigate "P625" arrived at Sri Lanka's Colombo Port on Monday morning.

    Speaking at the welcoming reception, Commander of Sri Lanka Navy Vice Admiral Piyal De Silva thanked China for the gifted frigate, saying that the Sri Lankan navy would take the donation as a suggestion of the good friendship between the two countries.

    The navy commander said that Sri Lanka is currently facing maritime challenges with the surrounding sea being used by perpetrators for many unlawful acts including drug trafficking. With the acquisition of the frigate, the surveillance capabilities of the navy will be greatly enhanced.

    Chinese Ambassador to Sri Lanka Cheng Xueyuan said that China and Sri Lanka have been good friends and good neighbors since ancient times. The Chinese government and people will always stand with its Sri Lankan friends in the combat against terrorism and other forms of crime.

    As a new member of the Sri Lankan Navy, the "P625" frigate will be mainly used for offshore patrol, environment monitoring, and anti-piracy combats.

    According to the statement from the Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka, apart for the gifted frigate, the Chinese navy has also held a two-month professional training for more than 110 Sri Lankan naval officers and sailors in Shanghai, China.

    not so much about the capability rather the gesture

    probably not worth much but end of the day these are called "soft diplomacy"
