The Navy Times has a new blog, The Scoop Deck, and one of their first finds really is a doozy. Apparently, some Chinese navy enthusiasts have proposed a giant, submarine aircraft carrier, carrying 40 fighter jets — this according to the blog China Military Report.

How feasible is this thing? According to reporter Phil Ewing,

this monster also carries 36 submarine-launched ballistic missiles, serves as a mother-ship for fast-attack submarines, can travel at the speed of light, changes Pepsi to Coke, finds your car keys, achieves perpetual motion and assures you the check’s in the mail. 

China Military Report‘s posts on the subject really are worth a gander, for the laughs, alone.

  1. [...] The blog China Military Report is a treasure trove of bizzaro weapons ideas, like something straight out of the nuclear-hand-grenade 1950s. The Navy Times‘ new blog The Scoop Deck highlighted CMR’s hilarious, giant, submarine aircraft carrier. But the Chinese blog also features a proposed design for a huge, flying airstrip (illustrated) that is basically a carbon copy of the “heli-carrier” belonging to Marvel Comics’ SHIELD intel agency.

    I’m not sure whether we should take this Chinese design seriously.

    Naturally a true submarine carrier would have an angled deck and landing instructions written on the side.

    Aim for the front of the boat. It wil sink like a rock.

    Anyone who actually believes that whoever drew this up believed it was a viable design is completely and utterly mentally challeneged..

    Once that thing goes down (If they can get it to go down [Assuming, of course, that they make the thing]), it will never come back up. It will hold the record for the loudest submarine ever made though.

  8. [...] the same Photoshop geniuses that brought us the Chinese military heli-carrier and submarine-carrier, here’s artwork depicting a gigantic catamaran flattop, weighing in at 320,000 tons. [...]

    Always making a mockery of events.

    The issue today is not ships but remotely controlled drone aircraft that carry nanoparticles as pay-loads in safe mode configurations so that upon releasing these binary nanoparticles join together bringing absolute hiatus to the recipients and then after just two weeks or so disassembling into innocuous organic chemicals. Far Fetched? On your bike. The Military in the USA in the UK in China are already looking at these Nanoparticles for a variety of uses.

    We are all to familiar with the peaceful use of nanoparticles as a potential additive to the following:

    1] Structural steel – the idea here being to add nanoparticles of copper to the steel so that it will withstand extremely high temperatures and so that should a building (like the Twin Towers World Trade Centre) ever again catch fire its structural sense would not be compromised in a future fire-storm attack.’ Impossible? No it is here now but is not being used on the New World Trade Centre!
    or
    2] Paint systems that dispel dirt so that they do not need cleaning. Impossible? It is already here with us!
    or
    3] Glass that is formed with ionic nanoparticles so that they repel dirt so that they avoid the needs for cleaning (useful on high rise buildings, or aircraft etc.) or dispel water away from the surface so that they remain free of water or in the military sense reduce the frictional drag of boats and submarines in water. Impossible? Think about it!
    or
    4] Painting systems incorporated in to buildings – systems that are unknown to the public – which can be triggered remotely by electronic means so that they can be used to promote sales of goods. The potential here is for such a paint system to be laced with nanoparticles so that if (for example) a shop wanted to get rid of its surplus of – say Gucci shoes, or Vakko silk, or other such goods prior to placement of newer varieties it could trigger the chemicals in the paint so as to subliminally co-erce the unwitting public to a belief that they should buy these upmarket sales products. Imagine the response therefore when the owner of the shop finds that his sales of such products quadruples in a week and the stock is cleared ready for the next sales line! Impossible? Not so!

    Now look at the potential in developing nanoparticles for the military.

    1] An American High Level Drone Aircraft flies across Teheran and disperses nanoparticles in to the atmosphere. As they descend they become activated by coded messages delivered electronically. Upon absorption by humans the result is that within the next 12 months only females are born. What a problem for Iran that would be? Impossible? Ask the CIA what they think!

    2] Imagine a destabilising nanoparticle chemical used in the battle front wherein its use after dispersion destabilises the electronic miasma of an approaching army so that they cannot co-ordinate their basic functions for thinking and doing things. Within minutes the army would be defeated. Impossible? Think about it!

    This blog seems to think that the way forward is through major armaments and ships and aircraft and others etc. I am sorry you are wrong. The military and the under-cover organisations are already spending $billions if not $trillions on nanoparticles for these very reasons.

  10. [...] they gave us a giant, submarine aircraft carrier. To top that, a flying aircraft carrier straight out of Marvel Comics. Now the mad Photoshop [...]

    The carrier as seen here is a box shell over a typhoon hull with a third upper hull which is the hangar. the concept of square hangars in the third upper hull is laughable. To be viable the design needs to have a completely flat through deck, 3 to 4 hulls in width.

    There would be an offset conning tower to one side or the other of the hull and the aircraft would enter the hull through a deck lift through a Hatch similar in design to a ballistic missile tube one.

    It may be necessary to tip the aircraft in the vertical axis to enter/exit the deck lift(which is far smaller than the hull), the entire hull length may be needed for cat/stol takeoff. It looks more like a good drone launcher platform, sailing into the wind to launch and retrieve manned aircraft is not on with a hull low to the water. They would have to create a baffle at the bow to just stop waves from washing over the deck at any speed and to create a ski jump to launch aircraft.

    It has been done in the past. Weirder things have happened.

  12. David McElroy says:

    A generalized futuristic concept is not proof of planned construction. Every big military power has engineering teams cooking up wild ideas that never get deployed.

    However, Japan actually built and deployed submarine aircraft carriers with the objective of bombing the Panama Canal by surprise. Each submarine carried three planes which had engines externally pre-warmed before surfacing. Once on the surface, the planes rolled out onto the steam catapault and unfolded their wings, ready to take off.

  14. TLAM Strike says:

    Why not, the Australians launched a A4 Skyhawk from the deck of a Oberon class submarine a long time ago.

    There has been talk about building one of these for a long while. Norman Polmar’s Cold War Submarines has a couple nice drawings of proposed concepts of SSVNs.

  16. Mastercat says:

    The sub carrier is old, Us had some like that going back to the 1950′s. And China had air planes on top of subs back in war war II. But it sad to see all this steel going on ship,Just for war.

    Be cool to see everyone working as a team, Like a big under water mall. Things like that. Helping mother earth out,Be for we kill her.I don’t think the moon will work for us all to live on or mars..My the work of love work in the hearts of all.

    the Sek-Toku was a japanese aricraft carrier submarine that launched three Serian attack bombers.

  18. guy says:

    Nothing new.

  19. guy says:

    Appears to be a Chinese design in its non functionality.

  20. pedro says:

    I love the little bit of paper they stuck on the bottom of it
    It say`s
    MADE IN CHINA

  21. james says:

    Although the picture and concept is laughable..as well as be useless before she even went for sea trials. We are in a different world now. The U.S has built its last manned fighter. We are well into unmanned aircraft now..soon..fast and stealth unmanned. And its about info now. China has been busted several times hacking into US govt systems. Yet we keep funding thier war machine. Theres no doubt..the next generation will be in a full cold war with China. Paid for by US citizens. And apparently everyone in America loves that little tag that says “Made in China”
    Stop buying Made in China! put it back on the shelf!

  22. Stoneskyman says:

    Its easy to build – you just have to read the instructions – ooops sorry made in China

  23. Michael says:

    Wow, cool idea… Oops I think the Japanese figured this out back in WW 2. Look up the I-400 subs of the Imperil Japanese Navy.

  24. Peter says:

    i think everyone needs to take a reality check !

    these crazy ideas for design by the Chinese Defence network are NOW a reality; and in the very very near future it will be too late for the world to say “Oh, where did that come from?”..

    i have already seen both the construction for their new aircraft carrier with TWO airstrips on either side of their Comm’s Tower, and the construction of the above sub design – now under construction. Wake up everyone – America’s invasion of the middle east has awoken the sleeping giant (China). Guess we’ll have to wait and see how China cleans up America’s mess.

    if the concept works ,what a vision they had

  27. John Farmer says:

    The Chinese have some very impressive naval ships and well trained personnel. I hate to say it but if we ever got into a naval conflict with these boys we would probably get our behinds kicked really good.

  28. I had never seen any kind of submarine like this. I know that chinese are very much creative when it comes to latest technology.

  29. C’est un ѵraі bonheur de pɑrtcourir votre site web

  30. I do consider all of the ideas you’ve offered for your post.
    They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the
    posts are very short for newbies. Could you please
    prolong them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
