Kochi!!!?
The INS Vikrant is in the dry dock there.
I'll bet the chinese will try to launch a few frogmen to go have a look at the ship.
Or they might have agents in town, inside the ship building facility, and the ship crew will slip out to collect the intel

building trust with the chinese?..what a joke...cant trust them at all...

these guys are so slimey that the ship would probably have dropped lots of acoustic sensors in the harbor by now..and as the ship leaves it may even drop mines..which they can activate at will when they want....

i wud say keep chinese ships at least 1000 miles away from our shores. period.

testing the waters for securing the string of pearls...these ships will be equipped with high tech sonar detection capabilities, to test underwater parameter detectors on east front...

Symbolic name, that. Wasn't Zheng He the Imperial Chinese commander who set out with the Voyages of Precious Exploration in the 1400s? Is China recommencing an interrupted period of world exploration and conquest?

Frogmen huh? Nice to see 1950's terminology still in use. Haha, geez.

Though China is not our friend but still I appreciate this initiative. In past Indian navy ships have responded to Chinese port calls.

A training vessel of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army navy embarked on a round-the-world voyage on Monday from Dalian, Northeast China’s Liaoning province. This is the first single-ship circumnavigation conducted by a Chinese training vessel. According to the commander, Liao Shining, deputy chief of staff of the PLA navy, the vessel Zhenghe has 308 military personnel aboard, including 110 cadets from Dalian Naval Academy. Over the next five months, they will journey more than 30,000 nautical miles (55,560 km) and visit 11 countries, including Vietnam, Malaysia, India, Italy, Spain and Canada. Military cadets from 13 other countries will be invited aboard the vessel for part of the voyage to live and train with their Chinese counterparts, Liao said. Wu Shengli, commander of the PLA navy, encouraged the officers, cadets, and sailors to carry out their “harmonious mission.” “You are entrusted with the mission of promoting friendship between China and other countries and their navies,” Wu said to the crew before the vessel set sail. Wu said this is an innovative mission to improve the training of naval cadets. The vessel, named after the great Chinese navigator Zheng He (1371-1433), is the PLA navy’s first domestically designed and built oceangoing training ship. Since it was commissioned in 1987, the Zhenghe has visited more than 30 countries, and sailed 280,000 nautical miles. This is the PLA navy’s second round-the-world voyage. The first was undertaken by the guided missile destroyer Qingdao and supply ship Taicang in 2002. Those vessels visited 10 countries in 132 days.

City of Rome in Italy is now under interdiction, 7 days will pass for the destruction of the city.
For those who are to leave, don't return to the city, lest you are caught in the destruction.

In 1982 a geological group that drilled a hole about 12.4 kilometers deep in the crust of the earth are saying that they heard human screams. Screams have been heard from the condemned souls from earth's deepest hole. Terrified scientists are afraid they have let loose the evil powers of hell up to the earth's surface.

'The information we are gathering is so surprising, that we are sincerely afraid of what we might find down there,' stated D.Guberman , the manager of the project in remote Siberia.

'The second surprise was the high temperature they discovered in the earth's center. 'The calculations indicate the given temperature was about 1,100 degrees Celsius, or over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit,' D.Guberman pointed out. 'This is far more then we expected. It seems almost like an inferno of fire is brutally going on in the center of the earth.

'The last discovery was nevertheless the most shocking to our ears, so much so that the scientists are afraid to continue the project. We tried to listen to the earth's movements at certain intervals with supersensitive microphones, which were let down through the hole. What we heard turned those logically thinking scientists into a trembling ruins. It was a sometimes a weak, but high pitched sound which we thought to be coming from our own equipment,' explained D.Guberman .

'But after some adjustments we comprehended that indeed the sound came from the earth's interior. We could hardly believe our own ears. We heard a human voice, screaming in pain. Even though one voice was discernible, we could hear thousands, perhaps millions, in the background, of suffering souls screaming. After this ghastly discovery, about half of the scientists quit because of fear. Hopefully, that which is down there will stay there,' D.Guberman added.

'What really unnerved the Soviets, apart from the voice recordings, was the appearance that same night of a fountainhead of luminous gas shooting up from the drill site, and out of the midst of this incandescent cloud pillar a brilliant being with bat wings revealed itself with the words (in Russian): 'I have conquered,' emblazoned against the dark Siberian sky.

'The incident was absolutely unreal; the Soviets cried out in terror,' says Mr. Nummedal. Later that night, he saw ambulance crews circulating in the community. A driver he knew told him that they had been told to sedate everybody with a medication known to erase short term memory. The Soviets use this drug in the treatment of shock victims.

D.Guberman "As a communist I don’t believe in heaven or the Bible but as a scientist I now believe in hell," said D.Guberman . "Needless to say we were shocked to make such a discovery. But we know what we saw and we know what we heard. And we are absolutely convinced that we drilled through the gates of Hell!"

D.Guberman continued, ". . .the drill suddenly began to rotate wildly, indicating that we had reached a large empty pocket or cavern. Temperature sensors showed a dramatic increase in heat to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit."

"We lowered a microphone, designed to detect the sounds of plate movements down the shaft. But instead of plate movements we heard a human voice screaming in pain! At first we thought the sound was coming from our own equipment."

"But when we made adjustments our worst suspicions were confirmed. The screams weren’t those of a single human, they were the screams of millions of humans!

'What really unnerved the Soviets, apart from the voice recordings, was the appearance that same night of a fountainhead of luminous gas shooting up from the drill site, and out of the midst of this incandescent cloud pillar a brilliant being with bat wings revealed itself with the words (in Russian): 'I have conquered,' emblazoned against the dark Siberian sky.

Anything they can do, we can do better. Next step send INS Ranvir to Dalian on a friendly visit! I know we have extremely accomplished frogmen amongst the ranks of our MARCOS (one of my family members was one!) so hey, we can spy on Shi-Lang too...

That being said, I agree with posters above, the man who trusts the PLA will only end up with a knife in their back...and another in the front for good measure...
