China has released a statement saying the 20-foot tall giants being mass-produced on a newly built man made island in the South China Sea are purely for “defensive purposes”.
Chinese officials claim the army of goliaths have been purpose built for protecting the island and surrounding reefs.
“It takes about 10 oil units, which are harvested from the island shores, to produce one giant,” said Chinese officials.
The international community are concerned an army of this strength may be used for offensive wars.
“Damn, if we had an army like that we would have pre-emptively striked at least three smaller developing nations by now,” said one Western official choosing to remain anonymous.
