China's third aircraft carrier

Post by funkervogt »

Their first carrier was an old Ukrainian ship that they bought and fixed up.

Their second carrier was an indigenously made copy of the first ship, with minor improvements.

Their third carrier is of completely Chinese design, and is about as big as an American supercarrier. Satellite photos show the Chinese have built it at an impressive rate.

How active are the two existing chinee carriers? How is chinese carrier operational doctrine shaping up?
Are the chinese shaping up on deck procedures and actually getting the planes off and onto the carrier?

Or are the chinese still in the 'have carrier, what now?' phase?

Only a matter of time before they have a rival number of ships to our own. I'm sure the US military is studying this, but it's clear the balance of power is starting to shift.
And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future
