cgraves67: KiplingKat872: DRTFA, but China has one of the largest air forces in the world subby.

However, none of those aircraft are capable, and none of the pilots fully trained, to land on a few hundred feet of metal bobbing in the sea.

The entire point of this particular ship is to train pilots, once they get some aircraft that can handle the rigors of a carrier landing.
