Today's CCTV reports a new "submarine-based special-force" unit. Little is known about this new PLAN special force unit, but the mere fact that it is still under the command of the Institute of Submarine Warfare suggests it is not yet operational.

One thing is for certain, the PLAN is playing an ever increasing role in China military calculus -- from new overseas deployments, frequent port visits, new amphibious warfare assets to an ever enlarging special force arsenal.
