    Default Chinese Carrier Aviation Makes it to 1945

    I loved the title .


    Chinese Carrier Aviation Makes it to 1945

    by Ward Carroll on November 26, 2012




    An AP story at Military​.com reports that the Chinese Navy has successfully landed one of their J-15 (the carrierized version of the Su-33) aboard the Liaoning aircraft carrier.

    We here at DT figure there are two ways of looking at this development: You can say that this proves the threat in the Pacific Rim is real and the defense budget needs to be adjusted accordingly, which means a shift from a ground war focus back to the good ol’ days of wars at sea.

    OR you could say that all the Chinese have done is land a jet on a carrier, something the Brits first did on December 3, 1945. Now launch and recover 35 well-armed aircraft per cycle around the clock for three or four days. And then add another carrier or two in the AOR and try to make the airwings play nice together.

    Remember — although the economics are different — the navies of the former Soviet Union all attempted to embrace convential carrier operations in the late ‘90s. The net-net of their efforts was a fundamental understanding that flying off of the boat is harder than it looks — and it looks hard. As a result they sold one of their carriers to another country — China.

    research in the Chinese defense technology should not be very High.

    can see in their "new" prototypes that China is the country of the copy.

    Brenden, mate. I can't take this article serious simply because there were no Soviets by the late 90s And Russia never sold that carrier either. It was a Ukrainian business dude who sold it for cheap shit.

    Well you should, I think the author would agree with you that there was no Soviet Union in the late 90's. That is why the author said, "the navies of the former Soviet Union" ie Russia, Ukraine, etc etc. Hence the rest of the article states that one of those former soviet union states sold the carrier to China.


    The carrier is old Soviet junk, Russians are not famed for their ship building expertise, and it will fair just about as well as a T-72 does against an Abrams. Mad props to those Chineese pilots for catching up to what the west achieved 60 some years ago.

    Hey you landed a plane on a boat! Now do it with no lights in stormy weather, like our grandfathers were doing in the Pacific Theater back in the 1940's with no computers or high-speed technology.
