A large Chinese naval fleet comprising advanced warships, which are equipped with helicopters, is heading to disputed regions in the South China Sea for key manoeuvres. Beijing’s latest show of force is thought to be aimed at countering the US’s recent activities in the region.
Three vessels – missile destroyer Hefei, missile frigate Sanya and supply ship Honghu – have already left the naval port in Hainan province to participate in the drills. The ships will soon be joined by two other missile destroyers Lanzhou and Guangzhou, and missile frigate Yulin.
