China tests army of tiny drone ships that can ‘Shark Swarm’ enemies during sea battles
China is developing an army of tiny drone ships, which experts say could be used as a “shark swarm” 4gainst enem1es during sea b4ttles.
Tests involving 56 of the unmanned vessels were carried out off the Wanshan Archipelago in the South China Sea last week.

THE U.S. GOODS ARE EXPENSIVE CRAP IF NOT MORE CRAPPY . THEY GET YOU ON THE PARTS AND LABOR WHICH IS LEGALIZED ROBBERY THEY CHARGE AND ARM FOR LABOR. DON'T GET JEALOUS THAT CHINA IS LEAVING YOUR ASS FAR BEHIND IN TECHNOLOGY. WHITE AMERICANS CAN'T HANDLE DEFEAT VERY WELL THEY CRY LIKE A SPOILED LADYBOY.
This is pretty nice. And then you have the actual navy. Chinese tanks, aircrafts, warships, naval assets and nuclear weapons below. It would take forever for america to catch up.
China navy stretchs into California and has bases there.
Drone technology is becoming more and more an opportunistic war craft materials and china developing such devices for military use is truly giving an advantage for other several assymetric tactics such as espionage.
Military drones that are a threat to first world powers? China needs to first solve the air pollution problem in it's cities. city dwellers walking around with surgical masks to keep from choking to death is a far more pressing issue.
Quantity has a quality all of its own.
Remember the end product will be more like a jet Ski with a torpedo warhead.
Assume an air drop and high impact speed on the water and late opening chute.
Assume very long standby time and a couple of hundred clicks range.
They would act more like an active minefield than a torpedo.
First, it's only an idea, because China doesn't know how to make anything (they steal it and rarely able to deploy such ideas as originally intended), and second, take out mother ship, else disrupt it's communications... third, it's just a bad concept... Swarms of small torpedoes are too slow and be out ran, and any swarm of attack boats can be taken out with simple counter measures from deploying fake ships with the SRBOC systems to TORCH infrared decoys, from Anti-submarine mortars / grenades (extremely effective) to Phalanx, and many many other types of systems readily available that would make swarms worthless.
you put tomahawk missiles on those drones. And the u. s. is in some trouble. the u. s. is worried about North Korea having tomahawk missiles on their submarines. I'm more worried about somebody creating a drones that fly in the air that could devastate America and multiple ways.
I've said it before... I hope our fleet has some sort of a directed EMP weapon because swarming is exactly how our enemies will be coming at us and there is just no way to fight that in a conventional manner.
China, dream all you like! I admire your inventiveness but you have no chance against real seafare warfare experience! You are possessed with warefare to justify the intimidation of your South China Sea Neighbours! Why can't you simply get along? Yeah, Greed; and for whom? The minority leading Communist Party? To feed the egoes of the prevalent small ruling few??? You're making humanity even sicker!!!
Most these idiots know nothing about weapons technologies. This is actually a really smart idea and can easily overswarm any enemy ship the bigger the better. All those boats being picked up by the the radars at first they won't know what the hell is going on they could also sneak in some Torpedos or other destroyers and they won't see it in the radar as theres so many othet dots making extreme maneuvers around the aircraft carrier.
On the mothership, there is an old 50 slot USB panel, formerly used for bitcoin mining, but now used to recharge the drones with the included USB plug, like on my RC fishing boat, which kicks ass. Im going to put rebel flag stickers on it and jump ramps in the south china sea, like dukes of hazard. Im sure I can find a Chinese to play boss hogg and Cletus and enos, and chase me around.
gatling gun GAU8 based PHALANX 20mm or Goalkeeper 30mm and related are. 3000 to 5000 rpm... about 2000 in turret magazine and total capacity 12,000 rounds on ship....it takes just a couple of bursts to run out of ammo if you have to handle a couple of dozens of targets approaching at 60knts.... for threats like those you just cannot use a weapon where maybe 1 in 5 rounds will hit the target....what you need is a kill ratio of 90% and THAT you can only get with missiles or large caliber cannons....
U.S.A has way more experience than china, when is the last time china has been in a war? what makes anyone think china could use what it has effectively? The US has gone to war with what was the most powerful nation in the world (nazi germany) at the time and we defeated them, russia and all of europa was about to be wiped out and turned nazi german if it wasnt for the US that came over there and kicked ass, war with china would be mainly a naval war and air force, something no one alse can match the US with.
Ps. We might of looked weak and stupid with worthless obama and all of you might have taken advantage of us being too nice, but now are not taking sh*t from anyone, dont mess with our allies in Asia, we are not playing around.
Future wars will be fought with lots of tiny robots. The lack of immediate threat to human life will ensure insidious descent into war between bigger countries and nuclear deterrent will be bypassed. The country with all its bots destroyed would likely be rendered defenseless and forced to unconditionally surrender.
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
