Officials of the Bangladeshi Navy received two Chinese Type-053H3 frigates – Jiaxing and Lianyungang. The official handover ceremony happened in Shanghai Jiangnan Shipyard on December 18. Bangladesh purchased the missile frigates in 2018. On December 23, the frigates strated moving to Bangladesh. It’s expected that they will reach Bangladesh in January 2020.
Type-053H3 frigates have a length of 112m and a displacement of 2,250 tons (standard). A total of 10 Type-053H3 frigates were built for the Chinese Navy in the period from 2005 to 2010. The frigates received by Bangladesh are armed with C-801 surface-launched subsonic anti-ship cruise missiles and HQ-7 short-range air defense missiles.
This is not the first time when Bangladesh buys warships that served with the Chinese Navy. In 2013, the Bangladeshi Navy bought two Type 053H2G frigates.
Meanwhile, reports appeared that the Pakistani Armed Forces will buy 236 SH-15 155 mm self-propelled howitzers from China. The contact worth of $512 million was reportedly signed in June 2019. The deal includes training and maintenance services.
These develpments signs the growing Chinese military technical cooperation with Pakistan and Bangladesh. If this cooperation develops and expands even further, the close cooperation of Pakistan, Bangladesh and China could drastically change the balance of power in the region and undermine the positions of India.
China’s policy is to create a strong alliance system south of Himalayas to counter US, NATO and Zionist encroachment into India. US is more than delusional if it thinks that India can be a “counter” to China. China also has a major economic commitment in Pakistan with CPEC and its arterial link with the port of Gwader and One Belt. While Modi’s anti-Muslim policies are also alienating Bangladesh, thus China has a opening there too.
You must be delusional if you can think that NATO gives a shit on China’s actions in the Indian Ocean.
hahaha yr very cute mister occupybacon………The only country living in delusions is Russia only……remember Times have changed, Russia is today a country of mere 150 million, it simply does not have what it takes to lead the world, its highly under sanctions and has only 2 things to export to the world ie energy and weapons, nothing else…….China meanwhile through One Road and Belt is the new superpower now, and the sooner it realizes that the better for nobody else but for Mr.Wannabe ”Peter the Great” himself!
I hope in exchange, Israel and the U.S will arm India with our best technology. China has allied themselves with the Muslims, just to counter India. We gave India the Barak-8 system, will be used well against the Pakis.
haha lets just hope they dont endup shooting down their own helicopter with that Barak-8 too just as they did by using yr SPYDER, gotta love the choice and quality of yr strategic partners by the way.
And now it turns out it was shot down because the chinese ECMs with Pakistan had tempered their IFFs. Tells a lot about the quality of engineering and electronic of small Israel…….and u guys as usually had wasted so much capital on its publicity!
How Embarrassing as well as humiliating at the same time! isnt it? khi khi khi Sunshine the World is changing, and has a lot of problems, and u and yr mere 25 million people r just too small in numbers and r way too insignificant to really matter! Let me remind u guys, this Earth has a population of 8 billion people, and yr way too small and way too insignificant for them to really MATTER and for them to really care about!
As for your own incompetent forces who even end up shooting their own men while uninstalling the machine gun from yr tanks as well as wasting 3/4 million missile on a mere irani slow moving drone from Syria, as well as loosing a far more advance F16I Sufa by a mere 60s era Soviet crap like S200……..i can clearly see why these hindus r becoming so incompetent and are gaining this incompetency from, because afterall u have never been able to shot down a single aircraft of Pakistan EVER! while ended up loosing 12 of own! Well atleast these incompetent Hindus were able to shoot down our jets in previous wars atleast!
Remember always! Jewish race has never ever been a martial race, all through out 4000 years. Yr some goodie goodie businessmen who think of themselves as some special being, while being laughed at their backs by the World aka ”Goy” Yr nt something that the more powerful and significant countries will ever take seriously!
So give up and accept yr fate! that is if you want to survive in this 21st century like u survived in 20th!!!
oh by the way; check this out
u people must have really sucked! how humiliating isnt it? khi khi khi
Times have changed, Russia is today a country of mere 150 million, it simply does not have what it takes to lead the world, its highly under sanctions and has only 2 things to export to the world ie energy and weapons, nothing else…….China meanwhile through One Road and Belt is the new superpower now, and the sooner it realizes that the better for nobody else but for Mr.Wannabe ”Peter the Great” himself!
Russia/USA etc is past tense now, the future is only and only China! So drop the concerns about road and Belt and certainly about India since its none of yr business. All three countries Pakistan, China and Bangladesh share borders with India, Certainly NOT Russia!
What i dont get is, why is Russia so interested in India? what is the benefit of u from it besides it buying yr weapons, and u as well stopping those weapons sales because u think India will be concerned! all the while selling India S400s which can undermine CPEC through Kashmir and can be used against China as well.
and how u explain that…….and u thought we will never find that out??
And the very first comment;
PBC (Russia) 18 July, 2019 at 6:08 pm Russia’s interest is making Afghanistan stable and stopping drugs traffic to Russian Federation. So made it very clear in beginning – with Pakistan drills or helicopter supply or some arms supply will be limited to anti terror cooperation. Russia is part of CPEC, but not in Pakistan respecting interests of India. Russia remembers well Pakistan’s role in Afghan war also. Know very well side changing nature of Pakistan. Some day there will be some workable relations, but never at cost of India. So far no official visit by President of Russia to Pakistan or invites Pakistan PM or President.
