 Chinas foreign trade submarine marches into the international arms market, attracting us, EU and Russian concerns


The 4 day Asian defense exhibition ended in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in April 20th. At the Defense Exhibition, more than 20 Chinese military enterprises exhibited advanced weapons such as the air police -200 early-warning aircraft, submarine, stealth frigates and ballistic missiles, of which a variety of foreign trade submarines have become one of the highlights of the exhibition of Chinese weapons. After a deal with Thailand and other countries, Chinas submarine manufacturing industry is developing a new model to enhance its competitiveness in the international submarine market and further expand its market share. The US diplomat has previously said that China intends to occupy an important position in the international submarine market. In the face of new challenges, submarines in Europe and Russia will have to work very hard to maintain their position. Chinese submarine group to strike the international market S1100 type is 1100 tons of drainage, 60 meters long, equipped with AIP system, the maximum range of 3000 nautical miles, the maximum depth of 200 meters, armed with 10 torpedo, a total of 18 sailors, self holding for 30 days. MS600 is a conventional submarines smaller than the S1100 type, with a 600 ton drainage and a AIP system with a maximum range of 2000 nautical miles, a crew of 15, and a self holding force for 20 days. The fourth submarines are named MS200. The submarines have 200 tons of drainage, 30 meters in length, only 200 tons of drainage, 6 sailors and 8 special fighters. The maximum speed of the submarine is 8 knots, the underwater course is 120 nautical miles, the endurance of the submarine is 15 days, the maximum range is 1500 nautical miles, with two launchers, the torpedo can be launched and the mine can be distributed. Compared with the previous submarines with a displacement of more than 500 tons, the MS200 submarines can only be classified as small submarines. Small submarines are mainly used for transporting special platforms to special operations, and torpedo equipment is also used for self-defense. According to the public information, the country is currently equipped with small or micro submarines under 500 tons (less than 100 tons of submarines), including North Korea, South Korea and Iran. Li Jie said, the country with small or mini submarines is mainly a small country with relatively weak submarine technical ability, which is mainly used in special operations, such as carrying special forces secretly infiltrating into other countries to carry out reconnaissance. The S-20P submarine is another 2000 ton foreign trade type conventional submarine launched by China. The drainage volume reaches 2000 tons. It is equipped with a comprehensive sonar system, fire control system and weapons. It can use torpedo, anti ship missile and mine. It is a type of conventional submarines with advanced world level. ET40 torpedo is a supporting torpedo for foreign trade submarines Chinese submarine stunning international submarine market in 2017 In the past 2017, the Chinese submarine export showed the intention to make a difference in the international submarine market, not only in the International Defense Exhibition on displaying various types of submarines meeting the needs of different customers, but also with confidence in the achievement of the submarine export. In April 2017, a spokesman for the Thailand government announced that the domestic cabinet had approved the purchase of a submarine from China. According to the plan, Thailand will buy a total of 3 submarines, the first one approved, and the cost of 363 million dollars per submarine. Thailand defense minister Bawe Wongsuwan announced in July 2016 that the total value of buying 3 submarines to China is about $1 billion. Thailand Navy spokesman Zun Peng points out that the existing submarines are old and old, and it is necessary to buy new submarines. The people of Thailand can rest assured that the cost of the Navys purchase of submarines is valuable and will be of benefit to Thailand. According to the 1 monthly magazine of the Janes Defence Weekly, the Royal Navy of Thailand plans to receive 3 conventional submarines by 2026, the model of Chinas S-26T - type submarines for export. With the Thailand cabinet formally approving the contract, China and Thailands submarine trade, which has continued for many years, has finally settled, making China occupy more share in the international submarine market. The deal has sparked heated discussions in Thailand, especially in terms of price and demand. According to the Thailand media, the German 209/1400 offer is $290 million, the Korean Zhang Baogao cost is $330 million, and the Chinese S-26T submarine transaction price is $355 million. The highest price of Chinese submarines has been favored by the Thailand Navy. General Rudis, chief of the Thailand Navy chief of staff, said that the bidding results of this project were worth the money and could not be simply seen in the total price. Moreover, the related 1 billion 40 million US dollar expenditure will be completed in seven years and will not bring pressure on Thailands normal expenditure. In addition to Thailand, the submarine trade between China and some other Asian countries has also attracted the attention of the outside world. China Shipbuilding Industry Corp official WeChat published in 10 last month, and China Shipbuilding Heavy Industry held a working conference on submarines exported to a country in Asia. This is the first time Chinas state-owned enterprises have confirmed the export of submarines to the country. The Janes Defence Weekly website has previously reported that the project manager has confirmed that 4 of the submarines will be built in China and will be transferred from 2022 to 2023 to the countrys navy, and the other 4 submarines will be built in the countrys Shipyard according to the technology transfer scheme, and all of them will be paid in 2028. It is understood that this transaction amounts to billions of dollars. Besides selling new submarines, China also provides second-hand submarines. In November 2016, the Bangladesh Navy representative received two 035 type submarines at Liaonan shipyard, Dalian, China. According to the Daily Star of Bangladesh, the naval chief of the Bangladesh Navy chief of staff, NizamuddinAhmed, said the navy would have a new stage of development and a step towards building a three-dimensional army as the submarines joined. NizamuddinAhmed also expressed gratitude to China for its efforts in upgrading and upgrading the 035 type submarine and training of submarines. Reported that the introduction of the 035 type submarine is to further enhance the combat capability of the Bangladesh Navy. The submarine is 76 meters long, with a maximum diameter of 7.6 meters and can carry weapons such as torpedo and mine. The two submarines will arrive in Bangladesh in the near future and join the Bangladesh Navy in 2017. It is reported that two 035 type submarines are worth 203 million US dollars (installment payment). China will provide training for submarines besides providing submarines. The submarine known as underwater killer is an important equipment in the naval equipment sequence, and has become a weapon pursued by many countries. However, because of the particularity of the submarine operational environment and the complexity of the construction, there are few countries in the world that have independent construction and export of advanced submarines. The vast majority of countries with the demand for submarine equipment do not have the ability to develop and build advanced submarines. The way they own submarines is generally purchased from abroad and therefore international. A large submarine demand market is formed. Taking Asia Pacific as an example, the report released by British research institutions in November showed that the Asia Pacific countries will increase the cost of building submarines. IHSMarkit2017 The total cost will rise by 4.17% per year, and it will total 52 billion 500 million US dollars in 2026. The fastest growing countries will be in Southeast Asia and South Asia. After the end of the cold war, the number of new submarines in Southeast Asia increased from 1 to 5. Before the end of the cold war, only Indonesia had submarines in Southeast Asian countries, and now Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand were also joined. The Burma Navy is also looking for submarines and plans to buy 1-2 ships. According to the report, Southeast Asia has become the most intense competition for submarines. Submarines have become high value-added weaponry in the international arms market, but the market has long been monopolized by a few countries such as Germany, France, Sweden and Russia. But with the progress of Chinas submarine technology, this pattern is being broken. After decades of development, Chinas submarine technology has made great progress and has reached the worlds advanced level. After bidding and researching for a long time in Thailand and some Asian countries, the final choice of Chinas products is evidence. Apart from technology, means of payment and no political strings attached are the advantages of Chinas submarine exports. Li Jie thinks. Orders from Thailand and Asian countries have made a good start for Chinese submarines to expand international submarine market share, and follow-up orders are also worth noting. According to the Janes Defence Weekly, Algeria, Bangladesh, Cuba, Egypt, Libya, Burma, the United Arab Emirates and Venezuela all showed interest in Chinese submarines. It is not hard to imagine that other customers, such as Iran, will also be interested in small submarines that can protect their coastal areas. The Janes Defence Weekly reported that China might also be able to successfully penetrate the traditional European led submarine market. Today, many South American countries are using German submarines, most of which are 209. Chile has two 33 - year - old 209, Columbia and Ecuador each have two 40 - year submarines, and Peru and Venezuela are as old as their submarines. The South American navy with demand is now likely to prefer Chinese submarines. Although few countries can export submarines, the competition between them is still fierce. The comprehensive performance of Chinas foreign trade submarines is in the same level as the traditional submarine exporting countries, but it still needs to make up the gap in system maturity, reliability and word of mouth. Submarine expert Chi Haosheng pointed out to the surging news. In November 2011, Egypt and Germany signed an agreement to buy 2 209 type submarines to replace the 033 type submarines introduced from China in the last century. At that time, the submarine manufacturers in China, France and Germany had many rounds of bidding, and the competition was fierce. At that time, there was a view that the military cooperation between China and Egypt was close, plus active submarines were made in China, and Egypt might continue to choose Chinese submarines, but the result was that Egypt chose German submarines. Chi Haosheng, a submarine expert, believes that the German 209 submarine is the most popular submarine in the international arms market after World War II, and the number of exports is also the first in the world. Its advanced performance, maturity and reliability are the most important two advantages, which is also a place where Chinese foreign trade submarines need to work hard. Even if there are some shortcomings, it is believed that China has successfully won the marketing of submarines in the international market and will become a strong contender in this field. Robert Farley believes that in the face of new challenges from China, submarines in Europe and Russia will have to work very hard to maintain their position.
