China’s Shandong ship out to sea, satellite footage barely moving

The Chinese carrier Liaoning and its escort group were photographed by satellite on the 26th off the eastern coast of Taiwan by a U.S. warship that “jumped the queue” and followed closely; subsequently, the Japanese Self-Defense Forces also released a “clear portrait” of six Chinese warships and a Chinese Communist Party straight-18 helicopter taken by surveillance. On the 28th, a satellite image captured the Chinese aircraft carrier Shandong from its base in Sanya, Hainan Province, also like the Liaoning, heading out of the South China Sea in the direction of the Bus Strait, but a day apart, the satellite found little difference between the location of Shandong and the previous day.

The “New‧27th Army Military Miscellany”, a fan specializing in observing foreign tweets that track satellite data, said yesterday (28) that it was found from foreign Twitter accounts that the Shandong ship was heading out of the Sanya base, also in the direction of the South China Sea out of the Bus Strait; however, according to the instant satellite photos today (29), it was found that the Shandong ship was still In the east off Sanya City, sailing distance is not too far, compared with yesterday’s position is almost no difference.

In response, some netizens speculated that the Liaoning has been frequently monitored by the U.S. military and Japan in recent days, leaving comments such as “U.S. ships: another fat fish”, “another new toy”, and “the USS Elizabeth joint strike group of aircraft carriers said. Can you wait a few more days for me to sail out again? Then we found a multinational coalition force that came out of nowhere to help “escort” the ship. How do you want to invade Taiwan?” The “open to all countries to go to the card”.
