China would more likely to use it in Pacific than in Indian ocean


My Dear Mr. manoj10, please tell our Mr. interesting that it (the former Varyag) won't just be plying the waters of the Pacific because that definitely wasn't the purpose it was intended.

Therefore, please tell our Mr. Interesting that rather than just the waters of the Pacific, that once it's launched, that it intends to sail in tandem alongside the US 7th Fleet in a partnership to ensure it that " PEACE" will be maintained in the world and that "BULLYING and BLACKMAILS" by tactics known as gunboat policies won't be repeated again -- ever :)

Words have it that as small as it is (originally as a medium carrier that houses 48 fighters) that it is currently being refurbished to accommodate up to as many as 80 front line fighters. Additional Bay-Island noticed along the side of the ship's hull has been the topic of great mystery and speculations lately and my speculations are that the ship had taken on a massive refurbishing job to provide for hangers for additional jets hence certain parts of the boat was moved to these newer structures in the exterior of the ship.   

Words are that the ship's deck had been strengthened with thicker plates to provide for heavier aircraft operations and that can mean only one thing: This baby won't be any small potato once it launched.

An indigenous carrier version of something that resembles a J-11B (rumored as the J-13) was seen burlaped from prying eyes in the deck of the concrete structure of what possibly is a mockup of the Varyag in Wuhan's Naval Design Bureau.

Actually, the terms of sale involving the Varyag stipulated that she couldn't be activated as a carrier/warship. She was supposed to be a casino or something like that.

Hm... I see this has rolled along for a while...

... so a quick two cents:

Until the PLAN establishes where this new "Fleet Air Arm" will be stationed and what role/patrol route it will have - everything said until then will be nothing but hot air.

beyond my understanding

Why china need pursue such technology-sophisticated and costy carrier?

In actual wartime, even sizable barge driven by big engine can be simply employed to be a carrier that carry copters or sea-borne battleplane or bomber.  it will never be worried to be lost in battle because of it is cheap and can be built up quickly

since the sea and ocean have been dominated by USA empire, i don't think it is necessary for other nation to rebuild such a crap costing billions $ to do nothing in this age

Sorry Vic, but here's what I wrote in another site regarding the Varyag:

This PLAN armada, my opinion, is none other
but the PLAN's first carrier group formation ever [boldly announcing itself to the world]
ahead of the imminent debut of its star attraction...

Way to go, Beijing!


In other words:
Beijing does know where to put it
to good use, Vic.
