  Chinese Navy has ambitious plans to increase the number of fleets of warships and submarines following maritime weaponry and sensors in the next 15 years, the United States Navy report. United States Office of Naval Intelligence, providing an assessment of the Chinese navy set out in the China Economic and Security Report to the United States government. ONI officials discovered that the Chinese navy has grown from that initially only the power of littoral (coastal) into a force capable of running a variety of missions or in other words, capable of attacking targets hundreds of miles away from mainland China. According to a report first published by US Naval Institute, the Chinese Navy has 77 ships combatants, more than 60 submarines, 55 amphibious ships and 85 ship missiles. The report said that more than 50 naval vessels had been launched and commissioned in 2013, the same amount is also planned for the year 2014 "In the 1990s, nearly all warships and submarines China is essentially only able to run a single mission , does not have the proper equipment to be operated outside the ground defense support, ". But now, Chinas latest destroyer, DDG Luyang-class III, which is likely to begin operation this year, has been equipped with advanced phased array radar system. With the new multi-mission platform, the Chinese war ships currently capable of firing advanced anti-ship cruise missile (ASCM) with a longer range. The report also explains that the Luyang III has also been fitted with vertical launchers ASCM. Luyang III will also be equipped with anti-submarine missiles, and eventually will be equipped with cruise missiles to attack the mainland. "China has invested heavily in the development of maritime surveillance systems for national and tactical levels, as well as communication and data exchange systems to enable delivery of the target data accurately and in real time," the report added. United States Naval Intelligence believes that 85 percent of the Chinese Navy fleet would actually be considered "modern" by the United States in 2020. The report also touched on Liaoning, the first aircraft carrier of China Navy commissioned in September 2012 ago. Until now, China still continues to learn how to keep a fleet of multi-mission naval platform. In the year 2020, Chinas carriers will be completely ready to support fleet operations. "China is still a hassle to learn how to operate fixed-wing combat aircraft from the deck of the aircraft carrier," according to the report. This year China may soon operate a nuclear submarine Jin class ballistic. Operation of Jin-class nuclear submarines will be a new milestone for Chinas naval nuclear capability, the report said. The report also said that China currently has five nuclear attack submarines, four nuclear ballistic missile submarines and 53 diesel-powered attack submarines. Overall, in the last 10 years the Chinese submarine fleet has been increasing rapidly in terms of offensive weapons technology. A decade ago, only a few Chinese submarines are capable of firing missiles. Now, more than half of Chinese conventional submarine has been configured to fire ASCM, the report said.  "Missile attack submarine, Type-095, which will be built in the future of China, may be able to attack the mainland," said the report. With further enhanced later, Chinas submarines will be able to attack all military bases everywhere, the report added. Judging from current trends, within the next 10 years Chinas navy will be transformed into a modern navy, high-tech, global-reaching and influential. Author – Pieter Djatmiko – Indonesia
