China’s underwater spies

An unexpected Christmas catch has revealed Beijing is actively surveying critical shipping choke-points to Australia’s north.

And that could have dire implications if our trade-spat worsens.

Three undersea spy drones have been caught in Indonesian waters. They appear to be a Chinese design, and they were in shipping lanes crucial for Australia’s security.

They look like simple tubes with wings. But they’re packed full of sensors and a long-range transmitter to send their discoveries back to headquarters.

One was found in the world’s busiest shipping “highway” – the Strait of Malacca between Indonesia and Singapore. Now two have been found near the Sunda and Lombok Straits to Australia’s north.

All are vital – but vulnerable – gateways through which Middle Eastern oil flows to China.

And all are vital – but vulnerable – gateways through which Singaporean refined fuels flow to Australia.

These are the only deepwater channels linking the South China Sea to the Indian Ocean. Which is why whoever controls these narrow waterways can bring the economies of entire nations to their knees.
