China’s New Aircraft Carrier

While we’re cutting our military budget, China is going full speed ahead. Read this story I got in my email yesterday:

China’s new aircraft carrier

Wow!

These aircraft carriers look formidable and of ultra modern design. There are reports the 1st Chinese aircraft carrier is under construction and could enter service around 2015 or earlier. It won’t be long before we see the real thing. Defense analysts are waiting; watching anxiously.

THIS IS QUANTUM LEAP ABOVE ANYTHING WE HAVE ON THE DRAWING BOARD. THEY HAVE THOUGHT ” OUTSIDE THE BOX ” ON THIS ONE. BETTER SPEED, LARGER CAPACITY, MUCH MORE STABLE, ETC. DEFINITELY A ” BLUE-WATER ” LONG REACH VESSEL. PLUS THEY CAN SERVICE THEIR NUKE SUB FLEET IN-BETWEEN THE TWIN HULLS ( SIGHT UNSEEN ) OR EVEN LAUNCH AMPHIBIOUS OPPS FROM SAME. IT WILL BE LAUNCHED IN HALF THE TIME IT TAKES THE USA AT JUST ONE-THIRD THE COST. ADD THE NEW CHINESE STEALTH FIGHTER BOMBER ( NAVAL VERSION ALREADY FLIGHT TESTING ) IN THE MIX AND YOU HAVE THE MAKINGS OF A FORMIDABLE WEAPONS SYSTEM INDEED.

ALSO LOOK AT THAT EXTRA ”PARKING AND READINESS” STATION BETWEEN BOTH HULL STRUCTURES.. AND OF COURSE THE LAUNCHING AND LANDING CAPABILITIES FROM THE UTILISATION OF TWIN FLIGHT DECKS AT ONCE

P.S. SOME THOUGHT SHOULD BE GIVEN TO ADVISING YOUR GRANDCHILDREN TO LEARN TO SPEAK MANDARIN ( FORGET SPANISH ) MY ” VERY, VERY BRIGHT ” 15-YEAR OLD 3rd COUSIN HAS ALREADY BEEN ADVISED TO DO SO BY PEOPLE WHO KNOW ABOUT SUCH THINGS.

P.P.S SIX OF THESE VESSELS ( TWO PACIFIC, TWO ATLANTIC, ONE INDIAN OCEAN AND ONE MED SEA ) WOULD BE A PRETTY GOOD DIPLOMATIC ” BIG STICK “. NOTE : THE CHINESE ARE ALREADY DRILLING FOR OIL OFF CUBA. BRAZIL AND VENEZUELA. CAN THEY BUILD A FLEET OF THESE THINGS ???

A FEW FACTS: THE CHINESE HAVE COMPLETED THE WORLD’S BIGGEST DAM ( THREE GORGES ), THE WORLD’S LONGEST OVER-WATER BRIDGE ( 65 TIMES AS MUCH STEEL AS IN THE EIFFEL TOWER ). CONSTRUCTED A 15.000 ‘ HIGH RAILROAD INTO TIBET (ALL CONSIDERED MAJOR ENGINEERING FEATS).

THEY ARE THE ONLY NATION OTHER THAN RUSSIA THAT CAN LAUNCH MEN INTO OUTERSPACE ( OUR CAPABILITY ENDS WITH THE LAST SPACE SHUTTLE LAUNCH THIS MONTH ) . THEY HAVE ALSO SHOT DOWN A SURVEILLANCE SATELLITE ( ONE OF THEIR OWN ) FROM THE GROUND. PLUS THEY ” OWN OUR ASS ” IN THE INTERNATIONAL DEBT GAME.

CHINA’S NEW A/C CARRIER COULD BE TWICE AS FAST AS ANYTHING WE HAVE, PLUS THE STABILITY OF A CATAMARAN TYPE HULL WILL GREATLY REDUCE THE PITCHING, YAWING AND SWAYING COMMON TO OUR PRESENT DESIGNS.

    mmm…looks like something out of a Japanese, ROBOTECH cartoon from the 80’s.

    Am I worried with China’s overall Naval build ups? Nah. As long as our two economies are “Linked in” together, thanks to the “Wal-mart factor” I can’t see anything happening. Just flip over your coffee cup, is it stamped “Made in C…”?

    China has commerial ships exposed to pirates like everybody else. As I see it, this platform’s primary role would be to deterrent pirates and prove they can hang with the big boyz. I cannot see it crossing swords with a Aircraft Carrier battle group. Pretty target from a periscope too. If I was a pirate, I would high tail it if I saw this ship.

      Good perspective, Paul. I spent a good bit of time studying America’s cruisers for a book I just finished, but not the carriers. I had thought we were trending away from them. I know we’re thinking smaller with the other warships–not so many cruisers, many more destroyers. I’ll be keeping an eye on China, though.

    What I would like to know is, what is the cost of the carrier and are we going for another cold war.

      Good question. I know a cruiser is close to $1B. The carrier must be much more.
