    I'm not sweating aircraft carriers.... It's the missile platforms of the subs you gotta worry about.

    ACC ops takes time to learn and perfect. This is a long term issue.
    If they have truly dumped the slot machines replaced the engines and are going to take this scow to sea, then they have at least made a commitment to a true blue water navy with the ability to project.

    That can be worrisome but its decades away, if that thing sails in 2015, it will take them a few years to understand shipboard flight ops characteristics, coordination of logistics etc etc ... whats right whats wrong and then they will commit to design their own Aircraft Carrier for their aircraft....and at the end of the day, theres always the great unknown, having no experience in naval ops of this magnitude, there will be things they don't know, they don't know....;)

    They had better practice ASW as well, or all the carrier really becomes is "target number 1"

    this is why in the end china has opted for this route-

    India-
    INS Vishal- Conventional-powered CATOBAR carrier,65,000 tonnes, laid down- Mid 2011, sea trials- 2015 commissioning-2017.

    its not a STOVL 'harrier carrier'AC, its the real deal.

    They have one stovl AC, and are commissioning another this year....
