American naval officers also recognise the significance of China’s emphasis on developing an effective submarine warfare capability. In the view of Rear Admiral Michael McDevitt (US Navy, retd) (2000): ‘submarines are an essential ingredient in China’s maritime strategy. ’ Goldstein and Murray (2003) maintain that ‘perhaps the most significant development for the US Navy is China’s extensive efforts to upgrade its submarine force’ and warns that ‘the US Navy should not underestimate China’s ability to build a capable submarine force to challenge a superior foe’.

Since the restoration of Beijing’s sovereignty over Hong Kong in 1997 and Macau in 1999, the reintegration of Taiwan into a single Chinese political entity has become the next stage of this quest to realise the nationalist dream. Moreover, the continued existence of Taiwan as a separate political entity from the PRC means that the Communist revolution of 1949 remains incomplete, and therefore the legitimacy of the CCP’s rule over China is less than absolute. Thus, Chinese nationalism, the People’s Republic and the legitimacy of the CCP’s rule are tightly interwoven (Cabestan 2003: 30).

US Navy ASW doctrine anticipating requirements for ASW in the period from 2010 to 2015 envisages the deployment along anti-submarine barriers of a new range of smart ASW mines capable of distinguishing friend from foe over distances of up to two nautical miles (US Naval Doctrine Command 1998).
