    I think you're confused when it counts and when it doesn't. Who cares what missiles Russia puts in Siberia? LOL With the US behaving the way it does, China and Russia are staunch allies. I hope they get more, better missiles and increase trade with China so they get more funding for their military so they can build an even better defense to NATO. Only people like you who don't understand what constitutes a threat and what doesn't could provide such a stupid example.

    Speaking of countries that can't mind their own business, the US still thinks it can tell North Korea, a sovereign country half the world away, what kind of weapons it's allowed to develop LOL. Talk about funny and delusional, huh?

    They are sited at the far-eastern border with China. It takes some mental exercise to guess their intended target.

    Oh come on. China has hundreds of Dongfeng series missiles that are both greater in range and more technologically advanced than Russia's Iskander missiles. The former can easily turn them against Russia as a tit-for-tat gesture, which I'm pretty sure they've already done under secrecy. Russia knows that its missiles cannot alter the strategic balance and China deems this too minor a gesture to even lodge a complaint about. Russia made the dumb move of accepting the IRBM treaty and is now paying for it. What would Russia do if China moves a missile brigade near the Russia border? The answer is nothing. Both countries have their respective militaries and are entitled to position their armed forces however they want.
    Typical media bias trying to make China seem like the idiot when it comes to foreign affairs. I've already read an article by a so called "think-tank" which says that China lost the Doklam dispute to India. Given the quality of these "reports", what more do you expect ;)? Maybe this is why China is winning through the art of deception (Sun Tzu).

    The second Dokdo class, ROKS Marado, LPH 6112, had its keel laid in April 2017. She is due to launch in April 2018.

    2nd Dokdo Class Starts Construction

    South Korea will then build a third, the ROKS Baengnyeong, LPH 6113, to launc by 2020 I believe.

    The plan is for South Korean to have 3 LPH ships, that will comprise the flag ship of each of three Escort Flotillas. Each flotilla will be led by on Dokdo and be escorted by two KDX-III destroyers (6 of which will be commissioned in 2027).

    South Korea ha stated that they intend to operate F-35Bs off of these ships, and that at least one of them is likely to be built with a ski-jump. They may reft the other two with them, but they do not necessarily have to do that.

    Here's how the Dokdo compares in size to the Izumo class the Japanese have built.
