China sending its navy to combat Piracy

A couple of weeks ago, we saw some noise out of China regarding sending its navy to combat piracy in Somalia. Now, it seems like this really with happen according to this article. It will be interesting to see what get sent there. I'm guessing probably one of the Jiangweis and a supply ship. The other question is how much cooperation there will be between PLAN and the other navy. Especially, how will it engage the pirates? Same as the nato forces or different? IN has certainly got into a lot of confrontation in the short time it has been there. Anyhow, we will find out in the coming days.

Also, we have a rare new picture of the 094 SSBN.
