Chapter 2263: Chapter 2263: the most beautiful wedding (the end of the finale)
“Okay, take care, General Ji.”
Gu Nianzhi sent General Ji and the others out and had a meal with Ma Qiqi before she went to find her makeup artist to work on her wedding makeup.
This makeup artist was an expert in the special operations forces, so making wedding makeup was a piece of cake.
Gu Nianzhi allowed the makeup artist to paint her face as she asked curiously, “Where’s Huo? I haven’t seen him for a long time.”
The makeup artist smiled. “Huo is probably preparing too!”
Ma Qiqi giggled. “I’ll go ask Big Xiong!”
She was already married to Yin Shixiong, but she was still as happy and free as before.
Yin Shixiong was unable to respond to her call.

They were sitting in the most secretive underground launch base in the military port, lost in thought as they looked at the surveillance screen in front of them.
Huo Shaoheng had suddenly changed the location of the wedding in the middle of the night yesterday, and no one knew what had happened.
It was only now, almost evening, that they received a series of messages.
“Report! Coordinates, 15.4881 north latitude, 114.4048 East longitude! Submarine surface floating signal!”
“Report! The detection results indicate that the target submarine is 85 meters long and has a displacement of 3,000 tons!”
“Tidal-friendly leaf-shaped boat type! Single-shell structure main body! The hull is covered with the latest rubber soundproof tiles!”
“Floating raft shock-absorbing base! Ultra-low noise x-type Stern! Seven-leaf tilting propeller! Underwater navigation noise of 105 decibels!”
Yin Shixiong looked at the data and frowned. “This technical index is on par with the ultra-quiet Russian 636 kilo-class submarine known as the ‘Ocean Black Hole’!”.
He looked up and looked at Huo Shaoheng in surprise. “Huo Shaoheng, this is the latest production of the Japanese canglong-class conventional submarine, the Yellow Dragon!”
“It’s said that it uses the world’s most advanced lithium-ion battery as its cruising power. It has twice the capacity of the previous AIP system’s lead-acid battery, but its volume and weight are twice as small as the lead-acid battery!”
Zhao liangze added, “It’s more than that! Its silent equipment and speed are already on par with all the conventional submarines in the world. It’s even on par with nuclear submarines!”
“It’s so powerful. It shouldn’t have been detected by our sonar… how did it float up?”Yin Shixiong muttered as he looked at the data again.
Normally, submarines would not easily surface when sailing under the sea.
Huo Shaoheng looked at the display in front of him calmly, he said calmly, “Yes, this is Japan’s newest lithium-battery canglong-class conventional submarine, the Huanglong. Its technology is indeed very impressive. I heard that it’s 15 years ahead of the United States.”
“… Really?”Yin Shixiong looked at the monitor suspiciously, then looked at Huo Shaoheng. “It’s more advanced than the United States, and our sonar isn’t responding. How did it float up?”
“Look at this distance. After another 10 nautical miles, we’ll be in our country’s territorial waters.”Zhao liangze said faintly, “If it doesn’t float up… the consequences will be unimaginable!”
The Huaxia Empire’s military port was filled with so many top-level figures today. Just the Russian president, Putin, and the three magnates of the Huaxia Empire were enough to shake the entire blue star with a single stomp!
Huo Shaoheng sneered. “The lithium batteries used by Japanese submarines are impressive, but they also have a huge drawback. Although they have enough power, they don’t have enough endurance.”
“They went from north to south overnight. Now that they’re here, they’re at the end of their rope.”
“If they don’t surface, are they waiting to die?”Huo Shaoheng punched the control panel and quickly ordered, “Attention all units! Attention all units!”
“The target has appeared! HQ-19, activate!”
Hearing Huo Shaoheng’s order, Yin Shixiong’s face turned pale.
HQ-19 was the first-generation ballistic missile defense system of the Huaxia military. Its capabilities were superior to the THAAD system, which the United States had once boasted about.
“Huo Shao, even if the other party is really the latest Japanese canglong-class submarine, the Huanglong, don’t tell me they really dare to make a move? Aren’t they afraid of starting another World War? !”
Huo Shaoheng did not even look at him. He said calmly, “Look carefully at the model of the submarine on the detector. where is the Japanese symbol?”
“We’re just extrapolating from the technical specifications. This is the exact same submarine as the Yellow Dragon, the newest submarine of the CANGLONG class from Japan. However, without concrete evidence, we can’t determine whether this submarine belongs to Japan or not.”
“It definitely belongs to Japan!”Zhao liangze said firmly. “It’s just that we don’t have any evidence. Because the other party has erased all the data and symbols related to Japan.”
Even if they beat you up, it would be a waste of effort. It would be extremely difficult to prove that it was related to Japan.
“… it’s Yuan Jianan’s handiwork!”Yin Shixiong suddenly had a flash of inspiration. It was a rare moment of cleverness, and he said with lingering fear, “Fortunately, there’s only one! If there were two more…”
Even if they had the HQ-19, they wouldn’t be able to stop it!
Huo Shaoheng glanced at him. “You’re not stupid. Didn’t you see the news? The other two Japanese canglong-class submarines are being towed in the north and can’t come over.”
“Huo, did you already know? !”Zhao liangze had always admired Huo Shaoheng, now, he looked at him with even more reverence. He couldn’t wait to prostrate himself on the ground. “I just saw the Russian ship Kira appear on the four northern islands of Japan, almost approaching the Japanese mainland.”
Huo Shaoheng remained calm. He would not tell them that this was the work of his most secretive personal secretary..
“Of course Huo knew about it! Otherwise, would he have changed the location of the wedding from the beihe resort to the southernmost military port?”Yin Shixiong chuckled, suddenly, he said,”… This submarine also came from the north? That’s why it didn’t have enough range and could only surface!”
“To run from the north to the south in a day, this battery is indeed impressive…”Zhao Liangze narrowed his eyes and began to search for the submarine’s electronic signal, intending to try hacking in.
He had learned a lot from Lu Jin, and it was just the right time to “Apply what I’ve learned”.
“So What? Isn’t it still within my divine plan? ! I’ll let you surface as soon as you surface! Later, I’ll hit wherever I Want!”
Yin Shixiong excitedly bragged about Huo Shaoheng.
Huo Shaoheng ignored him and took the communicator to command the HQ-19’s relevant personnel.
“All units, take your positions.”
“Everyone must cherish this hard-earned opportunity to train our troops and show our strength and military might in front of our Russian guests and chiefs!”
Just like the usual practice, the insufferably arrogant canglong-class submarine was used as a target for practice. One after another, hq-19s covered in camouflage emerged from the depths of the forest.
Huo Shaoheng stood up after he finished speaking. “Big Xiong, Little Ze, I’ll leave this to you.”
He had already programmed his ballistic missile defense system and was only waiting for them to fly into the sky.
Huo Shaoheng’s calm and steady voice magically calmed everyone down.
He walked out with steady steps towards the wedding venue for himself and Gu Nianzhi.
In the evening, a cool sea breeze blew over the South China Sea.
The wedding venue was built on the spot, on an observation deck near the beach.
Behind them was the boundless South China Sea. The sea was crystal clear, and the Sun had yet to set. It hovered above the sea’s surface, casting golden rays of light.
The guests who were attending the ceremony had not yet come out. Instead, they had been placed in a cave not far from here.
This was the most secure air-raid shelter, and it could withstand a nuclear attack.
The entrance to the cave was made of transparent bulletproof glass doors. From here, everyone on the observation platform could be seen.
At this time, there were very few people on the observation platform.
Gu Nianzhi wore an olive-green military uniform and stood between the sea and the sky. She had a pine-green epaulet with golden wheat ears and a star emblem of the same color on it. Her long hair fluttered in the sea breeze, fluttering like a flag.
Huo Shaoheng stopped in his tracks in shock. Looking at her beautiful figure, his mood instantly soared.
She wasn’t wearing a white wedding dress!
This was the woman he loved, the woman he loved with his life.
He walked to her side and asked in a low voice,”… did you really choose such a ceremony? Don’t you regret it?”
What Girl didn’t want a white wedding dress for her wedding? Or a red wedding dress?
But she had chosen to wear an olive-green military uniform!
Gu Nianzhi was wearing the major general’s military uniform, which had been specially approved by the Military Supreme Council. It was for her wedding to Huo Shaoheng, and also because of the great contributions she had made to the military.
Gu Nianzhi looked at Huo Shaoheng, who was also wearing a major general’s uniform. He was tall and straight, and he looked like a man of great virtue. She narrowed her eyes and smiled. “You can’t even celebrate Christmas. Why would I wear a white wedding dress to marry you?”
She knew that in his heart, a military uniform was the most beautiful dress in the world.
Coincidentally, she thought so too.
Therefore, she did not wear a wedding dress at the official wedding. Instead, she secretly reported to General Ji and requested to wear a female major general’s uniform as her wedding dress.
All of this had been done behind Huo Shaoheng’s back.
Huo Shaoheng could no longer hold back the excitement in his heart. Under everyone’s watchful eyes, he pulled her into his arms and hugged her as he kissed her.
No one had ever seen the calm and self-controlled major general huo act in such a wild manner. All the political dignitaries disregarded their status and started to take pictures with their phones.
At that moment, the submarine that had just surfaced did not waste any time at all.
The launching silos on the top of the submarine opened silently, revealing the mid-range cruise missiles with automatic guidance systems.
“Captain Ah Wei has ordered us to destroy the southern military port of China at all costs! Missile! Fire!”
Loud explosions that sounded like the end of a pigeon whistle sounded from the South China Sea.
The sea surface was suddenly covered in flames, as if it had become a sea of fire.
Amidst the black and red flames, middle-range cruise missiles soared into the sky and sped toward the military port’s observation deck!
Yin Shixiong stared at the data transmitted by the active phased-array fire control radar and gave the order.
This was the first time that the ballistic missile defense system of our army had been put into live-fire drills.
Giant pillars that were nine meters long rose rapidly from the control vehicle and were aimed at the sky.
There was a loud bang!
Several ballistic missiles broke through the air at the same time and sped in the direction of the submarine.
The ballistic missile defense system was a competition of speed and agility.
In order to intercept the opponent’s missiles, you had to be faster than the opponent! Stronger!
As expected, not long after, Huaxia’s HQ-19 ballistic missile had locked onto the mid-range cruise missile launched from the submarine.
Just then, the military honor guard that Huo Shaoheng had arranged earlier began to play the majestic military music.
Huo Shaoheng turned around with Gu Nianzhi and looked in the direction of the submarine.
The HQ-19 ballistic missile was as fast as lightning. It was like a huge burning cigar or a comet that had flown away from the Blue Planet.
In the sky, the missiles that had been destroyed by Huaxia’s ballistic missile system exploded.
The Sun fell to the sea level, and the missiles launched by the Huaxia Ballistic Missile Defense System successfully intercepted the missiles launched from the submarine, releasing huge fireworks between the sea and the sky!
The clear, clear sky was extremely gorgeous, and even the Golden Sunset was overshadowed by it.
Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng raised their hands at the same time and gave a standard military salute in the direction of the fireworks.
She was mesmerized by the fireworks and thought to herself that the most beautiful flower she had ever seen in her life was the fireworks that exploded on the surface of the blue sea on an autumn evening in the South China Sea.
The last HQ-19 missile hit the Huanglong, the newest blue-dragon-class submarine that was trying to escape.
There was another dull thud and the entire surface of the sea seethed. The waves roared and created huge waves. The waves rolled and smashed the insufferably arrogant submarine directly into the bottom of the sea. Not even a wisp of black smoke was left behind.
Yuan Jianan, who was far away in the imperial capital, sat in the interrogation room. She watched as Huo Shaoheng dissolved her carefully designed trap one by one. She let out a bestial howl.
“Why? ! Why? ! How can he! How can he see through everything? ! This is impossible! This doesn’t hold up in terms of probability!”
She used the book of Changes, Chaos Mathematics, and the most powerful system AI to calculate countless times. She performed it countless times, but none of the results told her that she would fail.
But the reality was that she had failed.
She had used herself as bait in an attempt to make Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi believe that they had caught the mastermind behind the scenes and that no one would stop their wedding.
But she had never expected that even so, Huo Shaoheng would not let down his guard at all.
This blow to her was truly fatal.
What was the value of her sacrifice?
“Danger averted! Danger averted!”
The entire military base was once again filled with cheerful music.
This time, it was a wedding march played by a military band.
The dignitaries walked out of the bomb shelter and onto the observation deck.
Russian president Putin stood in front of Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng and said ruefully, “I just witnessed the most beautiful wedding in the world.”
“You are the bravest groom and the most beautiful bride I have ever seen.”
“I wish you all the best, and I wish you all the best in your love! I wish you all the best in Your Life!”
