Comparing systems and saying my nukes are better than yours therefore I win just doesn’t apply to nuclear warfare. The only relevant questions are could they launch them (yes) and would they get through (yes). Just one ICBM on New York would be a catastrophe beyond any of our wildest nightmares and would cripple the US. Now obviously the prospect of nuclear war is too horrific to be contemplated as a general military option, and yes the US would return the favor to China, but that’s not the point. Nuclear weapons make China virtually IMMUNE from direct conflict with US and vice versa. Numbers of lorries or carriers don’t feature in the superpower equation, unless you are trying to stack the odds in one particular direction.

Anyway, what do you know about PLAN aircraft carriers and potential air options or were you just here to make politically motivated remarks?

As a matter of fact, US supercarriers do figure into the superpower equation, any superpower equation, especially when considering the Battle Groups they roam in. Furthermore, they are instruments of superpower and nuclear projection, and China knows this, as did Russia. They are political, military, and nuclear projection devices, not to be dismissed.

When is China going to build a Aircraft Carrier?
