Also, I have to say I don't have anything against China, not one drop of malice, but I think it's a bit of absurd to say that an aircraft carrier is purely for "defensive" purposes. I know that China doesn't plan to invade other countries, but an aircraft carrier is not a defensive asset in nature, but I understand that they want to keep up with the other local- and superpowers.------We are building an aircraft carrier by our own technology, not you guys meanly meantioned so called "Varyag" or "casino". We are not USA or NATO countries who get used to invade or intervene other countries. An aircraft carrier is just for defending our own sea......
...Well only if you think that the best defence is attack
As Banderas said, a Carrier can be either defensive or offensive. If its carrying just 1 jet fighter/bomber with just 1 cruise missile ...... its offensive.
And lets face it, the peoples of any country don't determine if a country attacks another or invades, it the politicians who decide that
The floating "casino" ......
Erm, isn't this more than a little off topic?
I just want something new to shoot at.
Let's leave the politics of other nations out of the forums. This is still just a game so let's leave it at that.
Yeh, bit OT
So guys, any chance of some Air Force upgrades in there?
Chengdu J-10 ?
Xian JH-7 ?
Shenyang J-8 ?
Nanchang Q-5 ?
