China Japan Naval Assessment


American Admiralty Books Safety & Privacy Policies   EU VISITORS WARNING POSSIBLE COOKIES AHEAD

One hundred and twenty three years ago last August the first Sino-Japanese war opened. This was the war between China's Qing dynasty and Meiji Japan. Japan at the time had been a long time student of the British Navy and had learned its lessons well. Although China's northern fleet equaled or exceeded the Japanese navy the Dragon was no match for the Rising Sun. It is widely believed by naval historians that the Chinese fleet was annihilated due to China's lack of naval coordination. China still smarts over the loss. Today China wants islands that belong to Japan. While Japan has a qualitative advantage over China's fleet at the moment. China has the numbers. It is often noted that "sometimes quantity has a quality all its own". China is also rapidly closing the quality gap. China simply no longer has an inferiority complex when it comes to comparing the Dragon's navy to the Japanese Navy. The links in this post will take you to a comparison between the two forces that is admittedly a couple of years old, but gets the basics right in our view. The news frankly is not good but we'll leave the details to Tyler Durden at Zerohedge.com
