Federation of American Scientist blogger Hans M. Kristensen has struck again, this time sighting not one but two Chinese ballistic missile submarines, this time at the Huludao shipyards. The first one was spotted at the Xiaopingdao shipyards in July, and it could be one of the two pictured here. Or there’s three. Whatever, the U.S. Navy has long predicted they’d build five. Innoculate yourself against the impending claims of China dominating the Pacific by reading ArmsControlWonk’s soon to be three part series on the 094 submarine and its limitations.
