A French frigate docked at Cam Ranh Port in Vietnam this week, the latest sign that foreign powers are pushing back against China’s assertive behavior and expansive claims in the South China Sea.

In February, France’s defense minister announced that a French nuclear attack submarine and an accompanying support ship had completed a patrol in the South China Sea, and U.S. forces have repeatedly conducted “freedom of navigation operations” and other maneuvers in the contested waters since the start of the year.
Good move by the French in sending nuclear attack submarines
More people to the party more fun

Royal Navy Carrier Queen Elizabeth has finished its loading of live weapons in Scotland

3,000 sailors + Marines are on board with a entire full strength Carrier strike Group

a Nuclear Submarine is also In the package

it is probably the Worlds most advanced CSG with 2 x Daring Class DDG for air defence

it will reach South China Sea in Summer

and then transit the Taiwan straight, China will protest as usual and announce more excercises

Haha, so interesting.
They will be warmly welcomed.
Sometimes I just wonder are they still live in their dreams 100 years ago?
Still think send some antique warship can scare Chinese people?
Meanwhile seen our Vietnamese friend seems very glad that their former colonizer comes back.

Too many hot spots, SCS, Persian Gulf, Mediterranean, Black Sea and Arabian Sea. The navies of the Canaanites are so busy driving around they are more like pizza delivery men then soldiers.

Pizza Pizza!

and none of the above WILL CHANGE SH*T. UK is a toy compared to China military..lol...I love how you boast of equipment worth billions of pounds that the Chinese military will spend a few million dollars to put out of commission...let them run to the SCS with only that....China wont be intimidated.

France never exited its colonial mindset. When it comes to how France treats Africa and other developing countries, i dont have respect for them, they are hypocrites. They smile and "act" nice but in reality they are one of the BIGGEST PSYCHOTIC CONTROL freaks of the white race.

Yep the French, who have lost every single war fought in their modern history . Ironically they're going to Vietnam as well, yes they lost there as well.

French have been doing what they are told since WW2, French should be last one to rely on when it comes to war, its astonishing how people cheer up when countries with rich history today fall in line with what Daddy America as them to do, they follow like a good puppy that include Germany, UK , France and Japan, once very reputable empires are now America's bit.. what a shame :(

Joking aside, Why is France hurrying to promote its naval diplomacy in Far-Asia? Of course, France has always been ambitious*(I could use different words here, but I don't want to create polemics.) and part of a variety of global mechanisms, but especially over the past year, this development has been quite evident. French-led naval drill in the Bay of Bengal quite ambitious movement.

Is this a Biden administration pressure, I don't think so, real reasons behind could be a bit complicated than thought.

France is big rival of US. Rafale takes sales from Americans. Airbus takes sales from Boeing. Not to mention DCN taking sales from Americans.
