I agree with you that China, in order to havea viable carrier fleet, would need around 5 vessels to keep 2-3 deployable at any time. The reason WHY China feels it need these vessels is the intriguing part.

China HAS 3 aircraft carrier for a long time!

Don't you guys LISTEN BETWEEN the lines what the PLA-China Daily says in the past 10 years!

They have 3, one just doing ocean trials, 2 as theme park reserves.
If they build 2 green field carriers - it'll be 5 aircraft carriers.
I have visited the aircraft carrier in Shenzen.
In most cases, it seems like within 1 year to operational - refitting etc.
They probably have the equipment STORED in some secret warehouses.

They already have the SU-33 (J-15), and a practice "landing strip" on land.

There is no need to have 3 aircraft carrier IF there is no OBJECTIVE far away!
Waste of money.
Afterall, China's military is only capable of handling "overland" states nearby or the nearly island states in the Pacific.

In today's modern warfare, aircraft carriers are not the ultimate to have to win the war.

However, not having them renders the nation less options to have to fight the war.

Carriers are only a part of the war game. By themselves, they are not the whole

war game. China should develop her necessary carrier fleet in parallel to her

development of the anti-carrier missiles, to act as a strong deterrent to any nation

who may harbor evil ulterior motives towards China. Be prepared for war if China

wants peace. One can bet, there shall be no ultimate winner in the next war.

Russia will have to be more circumspect and prudent about its sale of hi-tech

planes and ships to China.
.


China and Russia are economic and military strategic partners. Together, they

provide the necessary counter balance to a unipolar world created by the

international bully, the U.S.

I think you might not be correct on that basis.

Yes, there would be HUGE DESTRUCTION, but we would have winners.
Didn't you hear from China Daily own's revelations, their munition factories are UNDERGROUND in the Western Provinces. Even Nuclear bombs won't destroy their military capability!
