Seems that China is extremly proud of the carrier. New releases about it, more or less, on a weekly basis. But what's beyond? The Liaoning is far away from full operational capability. In my opinion, CV16 will be prestige, learning and training object, however, not more. The interesting stuff are two indigenous carriers, under construction in a shipyard near Shanghai.

Why do you say the Liaoning is far from being operational ?
The Carrier is at sea with advanced jet fighters flying from her deck. Sounds operational to me.
I think Japan , S. Korea and Austrailia need to gear up to operate the F35 B from their assault carrier ships and Thailand needs to get back in the Harrier jump jet operations.

The carrier is the beginning of everything on blue waters projection force. A aircraft carrier like this one will eventually over time, over a few more years, will be able to run with a fleet of aircrafts on board. Everything starts to grow and improve from small and nimble
situation and diadvantaged position. At least China is proud to say that she has the guts to achieve this milestone.

So far Korea and Japan were to able to use their creatviity to buy a uselesss redundant aircraft carrier. China is able to think beyond their needs is a marvel.

China is faraway on its capability side of running a aircraft carrier that has capability of taking off and landing of its jet fighters.

Since she cannot increase the length of the landing and take off strip of the aircraft carrier, which is short and limited in runway length, she will no doubt will put more efforts into improving her jet fighter designs with capability on mounting short take-off and landing runs. but this kind of jet fighter designs will her some more years to achieve it.

China is already launching and retrieving jet fighters from the deck of her new Aircraft Carrier. This is not in the future , it is now. Japan should go around their constitution and buy the F35 B short take off fighter from the US. The F35 B would be bought for the Japan Air Defense Force but in time of war could be deployed to the Japan Navy Helicopter Carriers to counter the Chinese Carrier.

Japan and Korea do not need a surplus Carrier from the West. They have both built modern helicopter carriers capable of operating the F35 B Stealth Jet. They just need to buy these aircraft.

The US has numerous surplus Harrier Jump Jets from Britain. They should gift 8 Harriers to Thailand so that the Thai Navy Aircraft Carrier will be combat capable in South East Asia in answer to the Chinese Carrier.mividn 1304

The Chinese Aircraft Carrier is at Sea and operational. South Korea should buy 16 of the F35 B Short Take off Jet from the US to provide for two 8 Jet Squadrons to operate from two Dokdo Class Helicopter Carriers. Japan should buy 24 F35 B Jets for their Air Force. In time of war these Jets could deploy 8 Jets to each Type 22 DH Carrier and 4 each to each Hyuga Class Carrier to provide air cover for the Japanese fleet. it is time to put WW2 behind us. Japan has a legitimate right to self defence in light of the Chinese Military growth. Austrailia also should look at 12 of the F35 B Jets for their Carrier which is being built.

i am sure this very pretty "training" ship will arrive on the scene the moment one of these out island disputes escalates beyond normal and needs tamping down.
same thing we do...

Why do you mention Thailand in a hostile light? Thailand is an ally to China and we only talk nice to the US because we are brilliant and enjoy the tourists from North America. But China is our long-term next door friend and ally. We live together in the same place unlike the US which is thousands of miles across the Pacific.

In addition, Thailand will always be China's ally and next door neighbor. There has never been any hostilities and your problems with China is not our problem and I for one welcome China's rise to power, because their interest is my children's interest.
