Clear footage released of Chinese warship Suzhou intercepting the US Navy destroyer Chung-Hoon in the Taiwan Strait. Reportedly, the Chinese destroyer of project 052DL made a sharp maneuver and crossed the course of the American destroyer "Chung-Hoon" type "Arleigh Burke" at a distance of 137 meters. As a result of the incident, the US destroyer Chung-Hoon was forced to abruptly slow down and adjust the route. After that, the Chinese destroyer "Suzhou" for the second time crossed the course of the US destroyer from starboard to port at a distance of 1828 meters. After the incident, the American command called the work of the Chinese team "unprofessional."

At the Changchun Airshow-2023 in China, a visualization of the Chinese strategic bomber Xian H-20, developed since 2000, was shown. The bomber is made using stealth technology. Itsappearance is in many ways similar to the American B-2 bomber, many of the characteristics of the aircraft are still kept secret. It is assumed that with a mass of 200 tons, the aircraft will be able to carry up to 20 tons of combat load at a distance of up to 8 thousand km. Presumably, inside the fuselage there will be a launching "drum" for several missiles - analogues of the Russian Kh-101 or Kh-55. The aircraft must fly at subsonic speeds, less than 1,000 km/h.

A Chinese J-16 fighter intercepts a US RC-135. Footage of Chinese fighter jets JH-7, J-11 and J-16 intercepting American reconnaissance aircraft in the East China and South China Seas has been published. There is nothing particularly interesting, except for the case when a Chinese fighter crosses the path of an American reconnaissance aircraft. Notice how the American RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft bounces when it hits the exhaust gases from the engine of a Chinese J-16 fighter.

Chinese ships use water cannons against Philippine ships. The Chinese Coast Guard used water cannons against Philippine Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources vessels that were en route to Scarborough Reef in the South China Sea. The Chinese side first demanded to leave it, saying that Scarborough Reef was Chinese territory. The Filipinos ignored the warnings, insisting they were in their exclusive economic zone. In the disputed waters of the South China Sea, incidents periodically occur between the Philippines and China.
