China continues to surprise with innovations in its fleet. On June 7, the first unmanned boat was launched in Zhejiang province during autonomous navigation tests. The ship was launched in the coastal waters of Zhoushan city.
Development of the ship began in 2015 by one of the Zhejiang firms – Zhejiang Beikun Intelligent Technology Co. Then it was launched in Jiangxi province, in the city of Jiujian in 2019. The first sea trials were conducted on Poyanghu Lake with a route of 1,000 nautical miles.
The boat can be equipped with various armaments, radar, sonar, optoelectronic equipment, and communication and navigation facilities. The boat is 40 meters long, displacement is 100 tons, the ship is capable of speeds up to 20 knots, and operates in sea waves of 6 points.
The Chinese navy is becoming more autonomous, functional, and diverse. In a challenging global environment, the PRC is emphasizing weapons development and trying to create new capabilities.

Just because CN opposing US now does not mean it would not turn on its former “allies” afterward.
China’s population is more than NA and EU. They are heading on the right path, unlike some other countries.
Chinese aren’t told to become gays or whatever the fuk in schools – they aren’t scared to be killed when walking outside their houses – they have a good country.
It is so fuking sad, India should have been like China but they are sucking off The EU and US 24/7. I was in India some years ago and I fuking remember my tour guide saying “don’t drink their water”.
India is a cesspool of poverty, hate and caste system. They have an inferiority complex vis a vis the white man, unlike China and other Asians. Hindus spend billions in skin whitening creams and bleach, with that pathetic inferiority, they will always be coolies of the racist western imperialists and their delusional global hegemonic agenda of divide and rule. China and Russia are the only true superpowers.
You are right. China and Russia are real superpower Nations.
That may be so, but I personally find the dark skin of Indians quite attractive. It has a nice warmth to it, and looks healthy.
There are many hues but I agree that a human being shouldn’t be judged by the color of skin.
In Japan it is the same but this has to do with modernity not with the nation itself.
India has neutral position on those issues. Your basement dweller mind is not able to comprehend this.
Are they kidding us? If a manned ship (that’s not a “boat” by size) is dangerous, an unmanned one must be extremely so: AIs are not more predictable than humans and may be less disciplined (and definitely much dumber).
Also why does the ship need floaters?
And why does the whole article reads like a propaganda piece?
And why does the whole article reads like a propaganda piece? It is under the “NEWS” tab – so it is just copied and pasted from a Chinese news outlet most likely.
And giving the facts without any opinion is not propaganda, it’s just information.
A perfect vessel to inforce freedom of navigation in South China Sea and around Spratly Islands
