Need I remind you that they used to (justifiably) say the same thing about "Made in Japan"? It aint "Jap Crap" any more, is it?

For some reason this just seems weird.
USA has been doing this for some time now. It is very hard for me to believe that China is JUST NOW reaching the ability to do this.
Is the MSM attempting to make China seem less of a threat with stories like these? The other side of the spectrum says that China is more advanced than the USA in terms of technological military advances. Who really knows? Military junk is never told to the public anyway. I dont believe it.

That Aircraft-Carrier is a "HAND-ME-DOWN"from Russia!! They actually were "showing-off" with that when they first got it?? America was "showing-off" Aircraft-Carriers like a HUNDRED YEARS ago!!!
In regards to the jet, be careful ground crews and ship crew!! If that jet is "Made In China", you can bet your life that its gonna RAIN DOWN PARTS at your head from above!!! Parts falling off of it, and malfunctions extreme.
They better hope that those jets do not cost much money to make and buy them, because if its "Made In China", you will have to buy 10 times the amount that you originally needed because they will all FALL APART after only a few uses!!!!!!

Nice landing, with an empty deck, calm seas and perfect weather. It's a start. Operational in 6 months? No way in hell. When they can launch 30 planes in 20 minutes, recover a plane every 4 minutes at night in the rain, then they may be operational in 6 months. This is no disrespect as to what they have done so far. I find it funny though, that their flight deck uniform looks like the US Navy's and so does their tow tug. Had a good laugh at their Shooter's launch signal. You would think that they could come up with something different. All in all, just a staged propaganda piece, that tries to convince the rest of the World that "we can do it too.".
By the way, they better watch where they have their people at during recovery. If that arresting cable would have snapped, they would be looking for a new flight deck crew.
