China stole the submarine detector of the American P-8A aircraft at sea

The Chinese military recently intercepted an underwater probe dropped by a US military aircraft in the South China Sea. According to Reuters, this happened after American military aircraft were spotted flying over the waters of the South China Sea and dropping “unidentified objects”.

American anti-submarine aircraft P-8A Poseidon regularly patrol the airspace over the South China Sea in order to monitor the movements of submarines of the Navy of the People's Liberation Army of China (PLA). These planes drop sonar buoys, which are used to detect and track underwater objects.

During one of these patrols, the Chinese navy observed the flight of an American P-8A and recorded the dropping of a sonar buoy into the sea. In response, a Chinese search and rescue team was sent to the place where the buoy fell.

A Chinese team has reportedly successfully located and extracted it, providing experts with valuable intelligence on its working methods and technologies used by the US Navy.

“The probe can be used to detect Chinese submarine signals and to counter submarine signals,” — the Chinese military said.

It should be noted that recently incidents have become more frequent in the South China Sea, leading to increased tensions. In particular, it is about the displacement of Philippine ships and vessels by Chinese Coast Guard boats.
