China has secretly built a major underground nuclear submarine base that could threaten Asian countries and challenge American power in the region, it can be disclosed.
Satellite imagery, passed to The Daily Telegraph, shows that a substantial harbour has been built which could house a score of nuclear ballistic missile submarines and a host of aircraft carriers.

Neat find neotrix.

The telegraph is treating this like some kind of breaking news though. (I imagine Drudge will headline it soon.)

Not much of a secret. Construction barges were there in the daylight. On the opposite side of the Peninsula is a public beach. On that side of the hill the Chinese constructed large air ducts to make working conditions tolerable until the base was completed.
