HMNZS Aotearoa Navy Ship Finally Arrives in NZ

The largest ship ever to serve in the Royal New Zealand Navy has made a triumphant arrival in Auckland.

The Aotearoa arrived in Waitematā Harbour amid much fanfare on Friday morning, including a flotilla of yachts and powerboats, and Air Force flybys from two C-130 Hercules and a P-3 Orion aircraft.Military brass, diplomats and media watched her arrive from the diving and support vessel HMNZS Manawanui, following Aotearoa's 16-day voyage from South Korea where she was built in the shipyards of Hyundai Heavy Industries in Ulsan.

The purpose-built, $500 million support vessel is designed to carry fuel, cargo, water and other supplies in support of operations, particularly humanitarian assistance and disaster relief missions.

At 173m, the ship is longer than the 169m HMNZS Achilles light cruiser which served with the Royal New Zealand Navy during World War 2, or the 118m HMNZS Te Kaha frigate currently in service.

Shortly after the ship docked at a specially-extended wharf at Devonport Naval Base, Aotearoa’s commanding officer Captain Simon Rooke said he and his crew were “incredibly happy”.

Philippine Air Force Holds Missile Live Fire Exercise

The Philippine Air Force (PAF) is reportedly conducting live fire exercise off the coast of Palawan. According to MaxDefense Philippines, the live fire exercise is said to be related to the PAF’s 73rd Founding Anniversary.

PAF will be celebrating its 73rd founding anniversary on July 1.

“Based on information received from MaxDefense sources, the aircraft involved will be the KAI FA-50PH Fighting Eagle light combat aircraft and the SIAI Marchetti AS.211 Warrior armed jet trainer,” MaxDefense said.

“The main highlight of the event is the first live-firing of an AGM-65G2 Maverick air-to-ground missile fired from a PAF FA-50PH aircraft against a floating target, to demonstrate its anti-ship capabilities,” it added.

MaxDefense also noted that the live firing of AGM-65G2 Maverick air-to-ground missile was conducted morning of June 25.

HMAS Warramunga Gets New Mast as Part of AMCAP Upgrade Program

HMAS Warramunga has passed a significant milestone in its Anzac Class Midlife Capability Assurance Program at Henderson Shipyard, Western Australia, with the installation of a new mast.

The upgrade program, known as AMCAP and being implemented by the Warship Asset Management Agreement (WAMA) Alliance, is now onto its third Anzac Class Frigate after HMA Ships Arunta and Anzac completed the upgrade in 2019 and 2020 respectively.

Major Projects Implementation Manager Commander Mark Williams said the new mast was designed to accommodate the SEA 1448 Phase 4B - Long Range Air Search Radar, as well as provide an improved Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) capability. Both of the new radar systems were designed by Canberra-based company CEA Technologies.

“Effective search radars form an integral part of a ship’s capability and as such it is imperative the technology used in that system is the latest that’s available,” Commander Williams said.

“The SPS-49, which is being replaced as part of AMCAP, has served the frigates well but it is important to keep pace with modern technology to maintain the robust frontline capability provided by these ships.

“CEA Technologies is an Australian company that has a history of working with Navy in the design and support of systems for the Anzac Class Frigates.

“CEA also developed the highly successful anti-ship missile defence radar known as CEAFAR which is currently installed on the frigates.”

The new 1448 mast was designed and built by BAE Systems to support the CEAFAR2-L Phased Array Radar capability, in addition to the existing CEAFAR1-S and 1-X PAR capabilities.

The Anzac Class Midlife Capability Assurance Program ensures that Anzac Class Frigates will be sustained for the remainder of their service life, allowing them to remain an effective fighting unit until they are replaced by the Hunter Class Frigate fleet.

The WAMA Alliance is a strategic partnership between the Commonwealth of Australia, BAE Systems, SAAB Australia, and Naval Ship Management Australia to deliver total asset management of the Anzac Class Frigates.

Turkish Training aircraft -HÜRKUŞ-B crashes in Ankara, pilots safe

A HÜRKUŞ-B aircraft crashed in Ankara on Monday during a training flight. The aircraft's two pilots bailed out before the crash, and their health conditions are fine, reports said. Rescue teams were dispatched to the Beypazarı district of Ankara immediately after the crash.

“At 3 p.m., one of our Hürkuş planes crashed during a training flight. Both pilots’ health conditions are good. We are investigating the reasons for the crash,” said a statement of Turkish Aerospace Industries Inc. (TUSAŞ/TAI).

The HÜRKUŞ-B aircraft – which was designed and upgraded by the TAI and added to the Turkish Air Force's inventory in 2018 – is more stable and comprehensive than the previous version, HÜRKUŞ-A.

HÜRKUŞ-B will be used to train pilots with its many features, including for night flights, formation flights, instrument flights, visual flights and aerobatic cross-country flights.

Chinese spy plane enters S. Korea's air defense zone

A Chinese military plane entered South Korea's air defense identification zone (KADIZ) earlier this week, prompting Seoul to scramble a fighter jet in response, military sources said Wednesday.

The Chinese plane, presumed to be a Y-9 aircraft, entered the zone Monday morning in the area south of South Korea's southern island of Jeju and south of the easternmost islets of Dokdo before moving into the Japanese air defense identification zone, according to the sources.

As the Chinese plane approached the zone, South Korea scrambled a fighter jet and raised the issue with China via a military communication line. In response, China said it was carrying out a regular exercise with the surveillance plane, the sources said.

Air defense identification zones are not territorial airspace and are not bound by international law. But a foreign warplane is supposed to make prior notification before approaching them in line with international customs to prevent accidental clashes.

Rogue Chinese General Zhao Zongqi, head of the Western Theater Command ordered the attack on Indian soldiers

Zhao wants 
  • Elevation to Chinese Central Military Commission (CMC)
  • China to not appear "weak" before neighbors

Last week a brutal skirmish erupted between Chinese and Indian forces along the contested border region of northern India and southwestern China. The clash killed dozens of people and dramatically escalated tensions between the two states. Now, it has emerged a leading Chinese general authorised the operation.

General Zhao Zongqi, head of the Western Theater Command, is understood to have approved the operation, US intelligence agencies claim.

A source said the General has overseen previous standoffs with India and is keen to ensure China does not appear weak.


short Bio

General Zhao Zongqi is an ambitious man. He has been heading the newly created Western Theatre Command since 2016 and has led an almost perfect career, something most of his peers can only dream of. His stint of 20 years in the Tibetan Military District led him to believe that he had a clear shot for the top prize, an admission into the Central Military Commission (CMC), the Chinese Communist Party’s highest military decision making body.

He perfected the art of mass ambushes during the Sino-Vietnam war of 1979 and has survived the ups and downs of the Party’s fortunes till now. In fact, he is one of the few lucky ones to have escaped Xi’s purge of the military’s top leadership. Purges have become a staple for communist regimes worldwide. Stalin anyone? Zhao however is a departure from the generals that populate the Party’s ranks. Ruthless and ambitious, he is banking on his current profile and the standoff with India to reach the hallowed ranks of the CMC. The style of ambush of 16 Bihar troops and the use of primitive weapons fit his profile perfectly.

Just before the reorganisation of the PLA’s seven military regions into five theatre commands, he was in-charge of the Jinan Military Region but had gone on a tour of garrisons in Gansu, Xinjiang and Ningxia with General Fan Changlong, the previous Vice Chairman (VC) of CMC. This was a sure shot indicator that something big was being planned for him, in the next couple of months, he was crowned King of the West.

The former Xinjiang and Tibetan Military Commands were integrated into the Western Theatre Command in 2016 and its reins handed over to General Zongqi. Interesting point to note: Western Theatre Command looks after China’s borders with India and is the largest amongst the five. For Zhao, this was the perfect posting. An apparently low lying fruit in the form of armed confrontation with India would have ensured his elevation.

Zhao was also made the member of the 19th Central Committee in 2017. But having been given the look over for the position of the Vice Chairman of CMC after the retirement of General Fan Chonglong, he started looking for ways to make the Party realise his potential. His plan to intrude into peace-loving Bhutan would have fetched him immediate affection from his party superiors, had it succeeded. He was also banking on the fact that India’s friendship treaty with Bhutan was a paper tiger. In case things went south, he could always say that India was the aggressor and he was just maintaining the status quo. Under this charade, he planned to grab some more territory.

Destiny had different plans for him. India intervened in strength and did not respond to Zhao’s provocations, which were made through the crude Party mouthpiece Global Times. The 72-day long standoff threatened to submerge the Indian subcontinent under the clouds of war. The international opinion also turned against China for invading a peaceful country. As a result, Zhao had to back off. Seething with humiliation, especially after Indian PM Narendra Modi’s firm demand to Chinese President Xi Jinping during the Wuhan Summit that China pull its troops back, Zhao felt the Vice-Chairmanship slipping away from his fingers. It was also decided during the same summit and the one at Mamallapuram later that the delicate regional balance in the region will not be disturbed at any cost.

Zhao is one of Xi’s rare handpicked choicesand both he and Xi are children of CPC revolutionary heroes from Shaanxi province and hence are very close. The ambitious Zhao Zongqi desperately wants his ploy to work- if he could avenge Doklam and show the party that he had the determination to force his will on his adversaries. As a result, the current standoff with India was planned in the early months of 2020. The intrusion was supposed to be so shamefacedly aggressive that India would be forced to capitulate and surrender its positions. He also calculated that going into a previously settled place like GalwanValleywould be advantageous as India would not be expecting any action there.

Zhao tasked units of Xinjiang Military District to harass Indian patrols on the northern bank of Pangong Tso Lake and removed all restrictions on their actions. Similarly, units of Tibet Military District were told to move into Galwan, Hot Springs and Depsang plains and try and rake up hostilities deliberately with the Indians. Again he has been sorely proven wrong. Not only has India not capitulated, but the massive buildup of troops and the two incidents of violence in May and June also threaten to push the region into a devastating no-holds-barred war.

Despite the understanding at the political level of not letting differences turn into disputes, General Zhao Zongqi’s grandstanding and megalomaniacal behaviour is not only destroying whatever little chance that he has of the VC position in the CMC, but he has also put his President in a very difficult position.

With half of the world breathing down Xi’s neck over his mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis, Hong Kong and the South China Sea, the least he could have expected out of his General was sane military advice and not an unwarranted action that will attract the attention of other
