China's New Aircraft CarrierSalem-News.com
China looks to dominate the Indian ocean with this new aircraft carrier.
(LONDON ) - Calling it a quantum leap above anything the USA has even on the drawing board, experts agree that the Chinese government thought 'outside the box' with this new design.
The new aircraft carrier offers more speed, larger capacity, increased stability.
It is absolutely a true 'blue water' long range vessel with what appears to be an endless list of advantages and capabilities.
According to what we are learning, the new carriers can service their nuke and sub fleet in between the twin hulls and it is also reported that they can easily launch amphibious operations from the same area, and that they will launch in half the time the Americans can currently do the same.
It certainly is one formidable looking weapons system.
The extra 'parking and readiness' station between both hull structures, and of course the launching and landing capabilities from the utilization of twin flight decks at once, offer the gigantic vessel a clear advantage.
We understand that six of these vessels would be used in the Pacific (2), the Atlantic (2) and one in the Indian Ocean, and one in the Mediterranean Sea. That would cover roughly the entire world, with strong air and naval defenses.
As information about the carriers becomes available, it is also important to remember that Chinese are currently drilling oil in several parts of the world that are off-limits or difficult access for the United States, including Cuba, Brazil and Venezuela.
Other interesting facts about China:
THE CHINESE HAVE COMPLETED THE WORLD'S BIGGEST DAM ( THREE GORGES ).
THE WORLD'S LONGEST OVER-WATERBRIDGE (65 TIMES AS MUCH STEEL AS IN THE EIFFEL TOWER).
THEY CONSTRUCTED A 15,000 FOOT HIGH RAILROAD INTO TIBET (ALL CONSIDERED MAJOR ENGINEERING FEATS).
THEY ARE THE ONLY NATION OTHER THAN RUSSIA THAT CAN LAUNCH MEN INTO OUTER SPACE (THE USA CAPABILITY ENDED WITH THE LAST SPACE SHUTTLE LAUNCH LAST YEAR ).
THEY HAVE ALSO SHOT DOWN A SURVEILLANCE SATELLITE (ONE OF THEIR OWN) FROM THE GROUND.
PLUS THEY "OWN US" IN THE INTERNATIONAL DEBT GAME AND PROBABLY OUR ARABLE FARMING LAND ONE DAY.
CHINA'S NEW A/C CARRIER COULD BE TWICE AS FAST AS ANYTHING THE WESTERN NATIONS HAVE, PLUS THE STABILITY OF A CATAMARAN TYPE HULL WILL GREATLY REDUCE THE PITCHING, YAWING AND SWAYING COMMON TO OUR PRESENT DESIGNS.
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.
