WHO says time travel is impossible? China clearly went back to 1935 to bring its two carriers to 2018.
tony the grouch
Well, now they have 2 carriers, with a third to be launched soon. But, how long will it take to become even close to the operational efficiency and experience we've been learning since our first carrier, the U. S. S. Langley was launched in 1920?

hahhahaha looks like a floating oil platform..
So they use a ramp for takeoff, what do they use to arrest the landing, a giant cartoon catcher's mitt?
My condolences to the families who have sailors on that ship.
Making fun all you want but do leave joking room for their 002 domestically built carrier. We'll find that one is no joking matter, nuclear powered, with advanced EM plane-launching system to rival our USS Ford....Let's all stayed tuned, its first exposure most likely will be within 18 months or so....
Looks like a perfect target for the U.S.N.
and if you look close enough underneath all the new paint on it's starboard side? it says Not made in China but recycled from a Russian ship yard !@

Looking at the photos it appears that one of the jet thrust deflectors overlaps the capture area. One bad landing could mean two aircraft lost, with one of them fully fueled and armed. Not an expert, just my opinion.

Its third carrier is coming next years, and its nuclear powered
Are aircraft carriers still relevant these days? How many incoming guided missiles can it shoot down?
The newly domestically constructed Chinese carrier, Wei Sunc Soon, is scheduled for it's first deployment to explore the depths of the China Sea.
