Okay, so apparently China is going to be launching their aircraft carrier soon. Maybe being from the States I have been spoiled seeing our navy with big guns and big ships, but this thing looks tiny. While I don’t know much about the defensive capabilities of a carrier I do know how they can be used in offensive situations…the name of the ship will clue you into where I might be going with this. I find the video a bit funny because you have so many touch and go’s which probably means that for whatever reason the pilot was unable to catch one of the arrestor wires. To be honest I’m not worried about China’s new toy since I believe that more than anything China wants an aircraft carrier to gain “face” or respect more than to spur on a war that will interrupt KTV time for their War Ministry.
