the chinese dont mess around eh
this vid just puts questions in my head about the new british carrier(s)
the liaoning, has a ski jump, no catapult, 60K ton's(ish), 300m longish and launches conventional fighters
the QE class, has a ski jump, no catapult, 60K ton's(ish) 280+m longish and launches STOVL fighters
Why can't we launch F35C's from the british carrier? does that 20m make all the difference? could the launch position not be moved rearwards on the
QE if it did? or is there something else? does the F35C not have the performance of the J15 to get airborne even with the ski jump?
