|People's Liberation Army Navy, the rise of a new naval power|
In order to realize the growth of Chinese Navy, it is worth mentioning the following quote by Dr. Andrew S. Erickson: "Last year alone, China’s navy laid/launched/commissioned more than 60 vessels, more naval ships than any other country in the world! ONI expects similar achievement for 2015." Dr. Andrew S. Erickson is an Associate Professor in the Strategic Research Department at the U.S. Naval War College (NWC) and a core founding member of the department’s China Maritime Studies Institute (CMSI). He serves on the Naval War College Review’s Editorial Board. In his great website, Dr. Erickson analyzes the rise of the superpower and its capabilities.
