And what will American taxpayers and old senators think when they see their $4 billion dollar carriers sink into the abyss with thousands of crewmen? The bigger the target, the harder it falls.

And space based carriers - come on, imagine a pilot, weakened by a tour of duty in weightless space put into a fighter and sent into 6g turns. And since when is a moon base a good idea, any fighter taking off from there would take what, 4 or 5 days to travel to Earth, a Nimitz could get there sooner.

I stumbled upon this article about the china Philippines conflict and noticed the two pictures they have within the article.
I'm sure these are artists renderings as they show a stealth fighter that i'm not familiar with. China does have a stealth fighter but what about this airborne aircraft carrier? Is this a possible design, idea, etc?
Is there anyone that can read Chinese and possibly find where these pic originate from? Any help is appreciated, it does look bad arse, and why don't we have 10 of these yet?
The article is not what's important just the 2 pictures
China's airborne aircraft carrier
I was able to make out one or part of the URL, but still can't find anything and it's in Chinese.
