    ^
    You judge world politics from memes.

    What you fail to realize is that the free world has every right to have their gov't officials visit sovereign nations. Or for sovereign nations to join international organizations.
    You can bitch and moan all you want about reasons for invasions. But the invaders are merely poor diplomats. If you want to inject whataboutism here, go ahead. It doesn't change anything.

    Soon ohno will come along and dispute the sovereign bit. He can fuck off too.

    Taiwan is not a sovereign nation. It is not recognized as such by the UN. This isn't just semantics! The US chose to recognize the CCP and not Taiwan.

    I guess you do stupid on your own then.

    The Communist Party of China has never ruled over Taiwan. Did you miss the part in my post about invaders being poor diplomats?

    China is allowing Taiwan to operate as an independent country. But inviting a foreign imperial power into the country ceases it from being an independent country.

    Taiwan has way less legs to stand on than even Ukraine did.

    Chinese social media users are posting footage of the deployment of MLRS to Fujian province, which is only 180km from Taiwan. These MLRS can use rockets of 300 mm, 370 mm, 380 mm and 750 mm caliber. Telegram: Contact @asbmil

    3 of China's largest/newest roll-on/roll-off civilian ferries appear to be off their normal routes and are in or have moved south toward the Taiwan Strait. All 3 are associated with the PLA.

    No mention of Taiwan.

    Or perhaps the stupid chinkies might try another one of their idiot flight stunts again, so they're keeping the wankers in the dark.

    To be fair, this time the tanks have the advantage as they will operate under water to invade Taiwan.


    Oh, Skidmark, have a look:




    Luckily the tanks only have to crawl along the seabed (or float according to the newest Chinese technology) for 160 kms.


    TD is lucky to have you.

    I told him to check his geography you tedious twat. You are on a bit of roll posting all over the place patting yourself on the back, in between the usual diet of pikey and drunk posts you like to liberally scatter around.

    Where? Are you drunk again or still? Where did you do this, Toots? Why do you feel the need to 'have a go' when there was no need . . . nor reason in this case? Stop drinking.

    Actually, it's you and the pikey who do that . . . it's in the descriptors.

    Seriously, stop drinking so much and stop forcing threads off-topic like you have done with this one again. Now, can we continue the thread?

    I must admit that I didn't know the extent of amphibious tanks . . .


    Over land and sea – the world’s best amphibious assault vehicles

    Amphibious assault vehicles, capable of thwarting the enemy across land or water, are growing in popularity as flexible systems become paramount. Army-technology.com profiles the best amphibious infantry fighting vehicles based on amphibious performance, armament and protection.


    USA AAV7A1 Assault Amphibious Vehicle

    The AAV7A1 Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV) is used as the US Marine Corps’ primary amphibious platform to move marines and cargo from ship to shore. The AAV uses a boat-like hull design and powerful water jets to make it one of the world’s best amphibious assault vehicles.
    The AAV7A1, with a cruising speed of 13kmph and an endurance of over seven hours in water, can conduct amphibious missions up to Sea State 3. It can be launched and recovered from Landing Ship, Dock (LSD) and landing platform/dock (LPD and is armed with a.50 cal machine gun and MK19 40mm grenade machine gun.

    The all-welded aluminium hull protects its three-man crew and 21 combat troops from small arms fire, while the 400hp turbocharged diesel V-8 engine provides the AAV7A1 with a maximum speed of 72kmph on land.


    Russia BMP-3F Marines Fighting Vehicle


    Kurganmashzavod JSC’s BMP-3F marines fighting vehicle, designed based on the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle, offers superior fire power, high mobility and personnel protection.
    The BMP-3F incorporates amphibious systems such as a lighter anti-surge vane and an air intake tube, and can operate at Sea State 3. It can stay afloat for seven hours and is powered by two water jet propellers and a four-stroke, liquid-cooled diesel engine, which ensure a maximum speed of 10kmph afloat.
    Fire support is provided by a 100mm 2A70 gun, a 30mm 2A72 automatic gun and 7.62mm machine guns. The vehicle can fire all onboard weapons at Sea State 2 and is protected against small arms fire and shell splinters.



    China ZBD-97/Type 97 Amphibious Infantry Fighting Vehicle


    The ZBD-97/Type 97 infantry fighting vehicle in service with the Amphibious Mechanised Infantry Divisions of the of the People’s Liberation Army is fully amphibious and is propelled in water by two large water jet ports at the rear hull.
    The hydraulically actuated wave fence at forward hull ensures the front section to stay afloat during swimming. The two-man turret positioned in the middle of the chassis is mounted with a 100mm rifled gun / missile launcher and 30mm coaxial cannon, while the secondary armament includes a 7.62mm machine gun. The vehicle has maximum speed of 20km/h on water and 65kmph on road.


    China ZBD-05 Amphibious Infantry Fighting Vehicle

    The ZBD-05 fully amphibious infantry fighting vehicle operated by the People’s Liberation Army Navy Marine Corps (PLAMC) features two rear-mounted large water jets enabling a top speed of 45kmph on water.
    A two-man turret is armed with a 30mm cannon, a coaxial 7.62mm machine gun and two HJ-73C anti-tank guided missile launchers. The vehicle offers protection against small arms fire, 12.7mm ammunition and shell splinters, and carries three crew and up to 10 marines. Its power-pack includes a high power engine providing a speed of 65kmph on road.
