China deploys ‘jellyfish shredders’ to protect its fleet of aircraft carriers

Recommended Posts

China has created a new weapon to destroy one of the biggest threats to its aircraft carriers - pesky jellyfish.

Dubbed the “Jellyfish shredder,” the Chinese weapon simply destroys the fish by chopping them into thousands of pieces. The threat of jellyfish sabotaging aircraft carriers is very real as the floating invertebrates can get sucked into the ships’ water intake pipes and clog the cooling systems.

In fact, in January 2006 a swarm of the creatures took out the USS Ronald Reagan while it was docked in Brisbane, Australia. The fish were sucked into the giant ship’s condensers, paralyzing it until technicians could clean up the blubbery mess.
