Beijing Newspaper Q3/1947 - Chinese news and events - July / August / September

Tuesday 29. July 1947; Chengdu Test Site near Shanghai It was early morning when mechanics pushed a strange looking aircraft on the test ground of Chengdu Aircraft near Shanghai out of the hangar. It looked almost like a two-engine airplane, but the propellers were much larger than usual and not in front of the engine nacelles, instead they were mounted horizontal above. A short time later, the propellers were rotating and the aircraft slowly rose into the air. Chengdu Helicopter prototype

Beijing Newspaper Q3/1947 - Chinese news and events - July / August / September

Friday 18. July 1947 There was one place in the Philippines, which no unauthorized visitor could visit, and that was the naval base Cavite. Heavy-armed policemen guard the base around the clock, and no one is allowed to pass through the entrance gate without even a special identity card, not even workers who have forgotten their papers at home. The Chinese Intelligence Service had two agents in this strictly guarded base, which were operating under great risks, but could still provide little inf...

Customs Cruiser (Large)

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" I cannot find technical faults in the design of the large customs cruiser, however… 1 – Putting the 120mm dual purpose guns in turrets (with barbettes) on such a small hull is questionable. A deck mount with hoist would suffice and would be so much more economical. Thanks for the feedback ...I also thought that Mount & Hoist were perfectly adequate. So when the ship is laid down, the switch will be done. Quoted from "BruceDuncan" 2- The amount of belt armor on such a s...

New Orientation of the Imperial Chinese Navy
