Chinese Navy “on track for a future role as a maritime power capable to pose a threat to the U.S. naval forces in the Asia-Pacific theatre”: Cenciotti

David Cenciotti on “the first successful arrested landing on the Liaoning, China’s first Aircraft Carrier by a made-in-China Shenyang J-15, a multi-role Gen.4.5 plane“:

Purchased in 1998, the Kutznesov Class 60,000 ton aircraft carrier, previously named “Varyag”, will be used to test qualify Chinese pilots flying with the navalised J-15 as well as to test and validate procedures, equipments for another future operative aircraft carrier (expected no sooner than 2020).

Hence, not only China is currently the only country known to be developing two stealth fighters simultaneously (the J-20 and the J-31) but the successful landings on Liaoning have put its Navy on track for a future role as a maritime power capable to pose a threat to the U.S. naval forces in the Asia-Pacific theatre.

  • How is this a threat, except for the war pigs who will use this to get for funding for their toys and to build further empires?

    Is China acting warlike towards us? Is their any indication that they will? Is anyone actually concerned that Chinese warships will come inside our territorial limits?

  • Skriz

    I agree with polizeros – how is this a threat to the largest war machine in the history of the world? Who thinks our banker is going to attack us? Seriously? What a joke! I’ll bet the war hawks at the Pentagon get a boner just thinking about going to war against the Chinese, the deviant sociopaths….

  • This reminds me of the 70s when I was an analyst for the DIA. We knew the Soviet Union was collapsing but you would never know that from the rhetoric coming out of DC – they had to justify that defense pork.
