    HANGZHOU, China — China hopes to make a splash with the Asian Games, opening on Saturday (Sept 23), but nationwide excitement has been muted as the economy sputters and some locals question the cost of the sporting extravaganza.

  • Bigger, heavier, faster: China rolls out military upgrades
    on September 21, 2023 at 7:44 am

    China's long-term military modernisation efforts are bearing fruit, with a string of upgrades for its warships and warplanes under way amid intensifying tensions in the Indo-Pacific, particularly the Taiwan Strait. New helicopter engine China showcased a 1,100-kilowatt turboshaft helicopter engine at a helicopter expo in Tianjin last week. A Chinese military expert told Reuters the high-powered engine, shown for the first time, is key to China's development of medium- and heavyweight helicopters. China still lags behind in the development of large helicopters, which can carry more weapons and cargo. They could also play a key role in transporting personnel and equipment in conflict scenarios. Bigger, more advanced frigates China launched a bigger and more advanced version of its biggest frigate at the end of August, according to state and Hong Kong media reports, which cited experts as saying the new Type 054B frigate could be equipped with an integrated electric propulsion (IEP) system, a more advanced radar with better detection capability, and a combined diesel and gas power system that makes it harder to detect.
