On June 17, 2022, the third tire of China’s aircraft carrier was launched.
This aircraft carrier is the most advanced electromagnetic ejection aircraft carrier in the world. At present, there are only three such aircraft carriers. The third one is ours, named Fujian ship.
The name is too festive to read. Overlapping words are bound to arouse the high attention and hot discussion of the Chinese people.
Only a few hours after the official name was announced, talented netizens have compiled all the doggerel.
Captain Fu of the Fujian warship wanted to meet with vice captain Hu of the Fujian warship. However, vice captain Hu of the Fujian warship refused to let captain Fu of the Fujian warship meet with vice captain Hu of the Fujian warship, limiting the idea of Fujian people.
Obviously, the general public is more interested in the name of aircraft carriers than in the various military technologies of aircraft carriers.
China’s first aircraft carrier was named Liaoning warship. This naming principle is irregular, and there is any possibility.
The second aircraft carrier is named Shandong warship. If the names of the two aircraft carriers are combined, some rules can be found.
It seems to be named after the province, and then from north to south.
Below Shandong Province lies Jiangsu Province, which has sufficient population size and economic volume.
The third ship should be the Jiangsu ship.
In the past half a year, countless people have oppressed Jiangsu warships.
Unexpectedly, it was the Fujian warship.
After hearing that it was finally named after Fujian, many people in Jiangsu can only console themselves by saying, “retire early and bring nuclear power late”.
Why Fujian ship?
Three samples are enough to find out the rules more finely.
Some people say that the Fujian warship is named to deter the Bay opposite, because Taiwan has been under the jurisdiction of Fujian Province since ancient times.
This analysis is reasonable, but the pattern is low, because there is no need for aircraft carriers at all, let alone special names.
Taiwan is too close to the mainland. It is impossible to use aircraft carriers in any naval battle here. All our aircraft carriers are prepared to protect ocean interests. Assuming that the enemy is a certain western country, they do not understand the history of Fujian and have no feeling about naming Fujian or Jiangsu.
From the north to the south, it skips Jiangsu and Zhejiang continuously, and directly comes to Fujian. There must be a reason, and the reason pattern of naming must be very high, otherwise it cannot be passed.
After all, the Chinese are very particular about the name and date. Even the launch day of the aircraft carrier, June 17, is dedicated to commemorating the date of China’s hydrogen bomb explosion, June 17, 1967.
What is the reason for naming? What are the common names of the three aircraft carriers?
It was hard to guess, but there were too many people who couldn’t stand it, and their eyes were too bright. Someone soon guessed it.
The names of the three aircraft carriers are to commemorate the history of the Chinese navy.
Liaoning, Shandong and Fujian are in order of importance to commemorate the great naval battle of the first batch of Chinese navies.
After the establishment of the navy of the Qing Dynasty, it experienced two large-scale naval battles and influenced Chinese history.
One was the Sino Japanese naval battle in 1894-1895, when the Beiyang navy was completely destroyed. One was the Sino French Mawei naval battle, in which the entire Fujian navy was destroyed.
After 1890, Japan developed the Navy and army with 60% of the national fiscal revenue. It was militaristic and built a huge army in just a few years.
Then, in 1894, the DPRK invaded the DPRK flagrantly, and the DPRK asked for help.
On September 15, 1894, the main force of the Beiyang fleet, a total of 18 warships, led by dingruchang, arrived at Lushun Port, Dalian, Liaoning Province, and then escorted 4000 Qing troops to the DPRK for support.
During the return voyage, the Beiyang fleet was attacked by the main force of the Japanese Navy.
The battle started in the Yellow Sea area, and the strength and firepower of the Beiyang fleet were obviously inferior. After five hours of fighting, the Beiyang fleet lost five warships, killing and injuring more than a thousand people, and the Japanese fleet seriously injured five warships, killing and injuring 600 people.
It seems that the battle record is acceptable, but in fact, the Shanghai army is a very special branch. It always decides life and death in the first battle. The superior forces beat the inferior forces. In many cases, it can play a 1-to-10 or even a 1-to-dozens exchange ratio.
On the ground, you can attack the enemy by dividing up and encircling the enemy. In some areas, you can fight more and less, and gradually win by skillful means. When you reach the sea, you will encounter the enemy directly by 200000 to 50000. The fleet will act together. The big fish will eat the small fish directly, and you can’t run away.
At first, the Beiyang fleet was able to exchange the cost of sinking five ships for five ships with serious injuries, but that was based on the fact that at the beginning the disadvantages were not too great. Now the disadvantages have been so many. If we fight again, the whole army may be destroyed and it is difficult to seriously injure others’ ships.
As a result, the Japanese Navy took control of the Yellow Sea, and the Beiyang fleet shrank in Weihai port, Shandong Province.
On January 20, 1895, the Japanese army landed in Shandong and attacked Weihai.
On February 3, 1895, Weihai City was completely occupied by the Japanese army, and Liugong Island, where dingruchang was in charge, became an isolated island.
The outside was surrounded by the Japanese Navy, and the inside was cut off from the land by the Japanese army.
The commander in chief of the Japanese joint fleet sent a letter to dingruchang to persuade him to surrender, but dingruchang refused.
On February 5, 1895, dingruchang’s flagship Dingyuan was torpedoed by the Japanese army and ran aground on the shore. However, dingruchang still fought hard and used Dingyuan as a fort.
On february10,1895, when Dingyuan exhausted all its shells, Captain liubuchan refused to leave the ship and committed suicide.
On February 11th, 1895, dingruchang refused to surrender to the United States and committed suicide.
On February 12th, 1895, Haowei, an American foreigner, drafted a letter of surrender and surrendered to the Japanese Navy.
At this point, the Beiyang fleet was completely destroyed.
The rudder of the Dingyuan warship was made into a coffee table by the Japanese. It is still put in Nagasaki for people to “visit”.
On April 17, 1895, Li Hongzhang, on behalf of the Qing government, was forced to sign the Treaty of Shimonoseki, which was humiliating and humiliating to the country, to compensate Japan for 200 million liang of silver and cede Liaodong Peninsula.
Six days after the signing of the Treaty of Shimonoseki, Russia, France, Germany and other three countries affected their interests due to Japan’s occupation of Liaodong Peninsula. The three countries intervened to return Liaodong Peninsula to Japan, forcing Japan to return Liaodong Peninsula to the Qing Dynasty. Then Japan asked the Qing Dynasty for 30million liang of “redemption fee for Liao”.
Therefore, the Sino Japanese naval battle in 1894-1895 actually cost China 230million taels of silver and the most powerful Beiyang fleet. At the same time, Japan’s sudden wealth greatly stimulated Japan’s desire for aggression and triggered a series of subsequent Sino Japanese wars.
It can be said that the Sino Japanese naval battle of 1894-1895 affected China’s history.
The Sino Japanese naval battle of 1894-1895 mainly broke out in the sea area between Lushun Port in Liaoning Province and Weihai port in Shandong Province, and Lushun and Weihai are also the two gates of the Chinese capital on the sea.
Mark it on the map and you will see it clearly.
Therefore, the first aircraft carrier is called Liaoning and the second aircraft carrier is called Shandong.
Another big defeat of the Chinese navy was the Mawei naval battle, which wiped out the entire Fujian Navy.
On July 12, 1884, the French Far East fleet entered Mawei Port in Fujian under the name of “traveling” and directly anchored next to the Fujian navy fleet, one of the three major naval divisions of the Qing Dynasty. It threatened to ask the Qing government to withdraw its troops from Vietnam within seven days and pay compensation to France, otherwise the French navy would occupy the port of Fujian as “collateral”.
In response, Zhang Peilun, he Ruzhang and Mu Tushan, the pacifists of the Qing Dynasty, ordered that “no guns should be fired first without an order, and only the enemy ships should fire back. Even if the violator wins, he will still be killed”. They entertained the French Navy generals, tried every means to make peace, and were unwilling to fight with the French fleet.
At that time, the French fleet and the Fujian navy ships were next to each other, and the distance was less than several tens of meters. Many officers and men of the Fujian Navy asked for artillery to drive the French Navy out of the Fujian port, and wrote to the Qing court to immediately send the Beiyang Navy for support, but the Qing court refused all of them.
Anyway, peace talks are the most important thing.
At 10:00 a.m. on August 23, the French consul submitted an ultimatum to the shipping Minister of the Qing Dynasty, heruzhang. Four hours later, the French fleet would start a war against China.
After he Ruzhang got the news, he blocked the news from the Fujian Navy for fear that the following fleet officers and soldiers would open fire. He sent a special envoy to the French fleet again to ask for peace, hoping to postpone the date of the war to the 24th. He then communicated with the above to see if there could be peace talks.
The French fleet certainly refused.
However, what was outrageous was that he Ruzhang did not order the Fujian navy to prepare for war, but was expecting the miracle of peace talks at the last minute.
All the warships of the Fujian Navy were anchored in the middle of the river and fixed on the surface of the water. They did not do mobilization and firepower preparation before the war. They did not even know about the war.
At 1:56 p.m. on August 23, four minutes before the time of the war agreed by the French army, the French fleet opened fire on the Fujian Navy, and the Mawei naval battle broke out.
The first wave of shells sank or seriously injured nearly half of the Fujian Navy warships, and these warships did not even have time to pull anchor.
The Mawei naval battle ended after only 30 minutes. The Fujian navy was destroyed, the Fuzhou shipyard, China’s largest shipyard, was destroyed, more than 760 officers and soldiers were killed, only 5 French soldiers were killed, 15 were injured, and 3 warships were slightly injured.
The peace seeking sect has been scolded by the Chinese people.
On August 26, the Qing government was forced to declare war on France, and the armies of the two countries launched a fierce battle in Vietnam.
Then the French army suffered a disastrous defeat.
At the end of the Qing Dynasty, the Navy did not fight a few wars, because once it fought, the whole army was destroyed once, so it fought two large-scale naval battles.
The Mawei naval battle broke out in the waters of Fujian Province, so the third aircraft carrier named after Fujian is to commemorate the suffering history of the Chinese Navy and also to warn all aircraft carrier officers and men that if they lag behind, they will be beaten.
The history of the Chinese Navy cannot be mentioned. It is a history of suffering. Even the history of the Navy after the founding of new China is a history of suffering.
The navy is an extremely money burning branch of the military. It can only be played by countries with industry, technology and wealth. The rise of a country is most obvious in the Navy, while the decline of a country is most obvious in the Navy.
The former British Imperial Navy and the former Soviet Navy. Look at what they look like today. You can see why the decline of great powers is most obvious in the Navy.
In the era of maritime transport, sea power is the right to development. Even if we only want to protect ourselves, we also need a strong enough Navy, otherwise we will have no say in maritime trade.
Therefore, we need aircraft carriers, and the more the better.
With each additional aircraft carrier, the world’s evaluation of China will change once.
Now, we have become a super giant panda holding a polar bear in the eyes of Europe and America. What will we become in the future?
Westerners have been fearing authority but not virtue since ancient times. The stronger you are, the more they respect you. They repeatedly seek peace. The fleet that is devoted to peace will only be sunk in Fujian port almost unharmed.
The Fujian warship will never be a peace seeker, because every officer and soldier will keep in mind the history of the Fujian Navy.
This will be one of China’s aircraft carriers that most oppose and dislike the peace seeking faction.
