Actually its a castoff from Ukraine.
And we should be worried about the Chinese invading the USA?
Got more problems on our southern border.
All they had to do was ask Obama for the blueprints to any of ours
It was designed by the soviets for V/stol (vertical take off and landing) aircraft and Helocopters. It was never designed as a convential aircraft carrier. That is why it is not that big a threat. China does not have V/STOL aircraft like our Harriers. If they do they are of the old soviet design yak 38.
We had about 50 carriers in 1944.
More like 200 and all of them would be sunk within minutes in a modern war. Also most of them would be incapable of handling anything bigger than a helicopter these days. The aircraft are far bigger and more powerful than the WWII types.
You're comparing a grape with a space ship. It doesn't compute.
Yeah, except for the Enterprise andHornet they were "Escort Carriers" designed to carry about 20 aircraft and to provide air cove for surface ship instead of attack carriers.
Tell me something I don't already know.
But in relative terms - the USA in 1944 ruled the waves.
More than today.
I'll tell you something that don't know judging by the tone of your post, The US rules the waves today more than ever.
Not much competition.
