Pocket Ninja: Uh oh. Guess we'd better commission another dozen carrier battle groups before we lose our competitive edge.


How many Bayonets does it have on board?

"We should make active planning for the use of military forces in peacetime, expand and intensify military preparedness, and enhance the capability to accomplish a wide range of military tasks, the most important of which is to win local war in an information age," Hu said.

Hu said that?


Yes.

BronyMedic: rv4-farker: they'll have at least 5 operational carriers and a full complement of quality aircraft to fly on them

They will have 5 operation carriers based on a thirty year old carrier platform they reverse engineered from the Russians. And they will not have quality planes. They'll have 40 year old aircraft which were illegally copied off the Russians (HAHEHEH. TURN ABOUT IS FAIR PLAY, EH?) which the latest generation of US Navy Fighters employed TODAY were built specifically to kill in the late 80s.


And more importantly, no way to replenish them underway. Also no way to operate their aircraft in IFR/ night conditions. There's a reason why America is the only nation that actually uses it's carriers to project power while everyone else keeps their carriers close to home.

Pumpernickel bread: They aren't trying to go toe-to-toe with the u.s........yet.


Why would China want to go toe to toe with their best customer?
That would be like Wal-Mart attacking the local trailer park.

I realize that, for some reason (which has never been explained to me), this is IMPOSSIBLE, but...

I think it would be truly hilarious if the Chinese seized all of the US-owned factories in their country.

Wouldn't it be fun to see all of the corporations who chose to locate there suddenly go belly up?

I'd be willing to suffer through the crippling recession such an event would lead to, if there was only a chance that our leaders might learn some kind of lesson from it.

An hour after the peace treaty is signed, they'll be hungry for war again.

Magorn: Honestly, an air-craft carrier is SO 20th century-at this point why not build something that can launch thousands of cruise missile and drones?

Sounds like you want a missile corvette.

But I'm all about the iron canon frigate.

Enough to do what they want for now - project force and get their way in spats with neighboring countries. They aren't trying to go toe-to-toe with the u.s........yet.

Don't worry, the sailors on board will probably die from lead paint poisoning anyway.

How many Marines are on board? I think it's a one to one relationship for Marines and Bayonets.
