Beijing recently produced its eleventh “carrier killer” destroyer and is set to deploy a fleet of the fearsome battleships to the South China Sea in an attempt to ward off American naval forces.

Last week, the eleventh Type 052 Luyang III-class elite guided-missile destroyer joined the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) fleet marking an aggressive increase in the production of the lethal vessels. The battleship is often compared to Japan’s violent Aegis destroyer.
