Chinese submarine patrols increase

Chinese submarines conducted almost double the number of patrols in 2008 than they did in the previous year, according to information made available to the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) by US Naval Intelligence. The People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) submarine fleet completed 12 patrol missions compared to just seven in 2007, two in 2006 and none in 2005
