KiplingKat872: DRTFA, but China has one of the largest air forces in the world subby.
RugNug: UNC_Samurai: I don't know if I would trust even the most thorough overhaul of Varyag. I'd have put more trust in the Cabot (before it was scrapped) than a Kuznetzov hull.My Grandfather served on the Cabot in WWII. I have the medical dictionary he used then.
KiplingKat872: UNC_Samurai: The Chinese never bought any Su-33s, however. And I don't think they've modified any J-10s to be carrier-capable.How much modification does that take tho'? Given the size of their air force and how much money China is currently rolling in, while I agree this is probably a tempest in a tea pot, but I don't think aircraft are really the problem here.
