Thanks for clearing that up, I am in the process of joining the British Army so I have some knowledge on the subject but not a great deal.
You're welcome. Congrats on your decision. You'll enjoy it if it's anything like it is here.
And don't worry, you'll be taught to pull the pin, throw, and DUCK.

aircraft carries are already outdated
theyre only good as a launching platform against countries with technology thats far inferior or if youve already established dominance in the area and are using it to maintain that
the chinese can drop kinetic munitions from a #ing satellite.... suddenly an aircraft carrier is a multibillion dollar tin can
(not saying we dont have technology thats far superior
im sure we do
the point im making is aircraft carriers in this day and age are a waste of resources)edit on 24-2-2012 by sirhumperdink because: (no reason given)

In this day and age you dont win wars with troops, you win with tech. I.E Navy and Air Force are important to fighting a war.
China can defend, sure. But in a invasive situation with lets say, Russia, China would fail and pretty epicly.
Try deploying million plus men and keep them fed and medicated. Good luck.
My two cents.
