China has officially recognized the development program of aircraft carrier. China will finish the modern equipment aircraft carrier Varyag, the aircraft carrier purchased from Ukraine, is said to be converted to a floating casino the Chinese Navy.
Chinese ambition: to become the tenth national carrier
At least for now, China has no plan to it with weapons. Carrier will be used for training pilots and crew team. At first, experts jokingly liken it unsinkable boulders that the empress built in Beijing Summer Palace's Marble Boat on Kunming Lake. But the joke was soon abandoned. Things become clear, are not open to purchase Kuznetsov casino, and there are two aircraft carriers in Shanghai shipyard construction.
In short, China announced its own aircraft carrier fleet to build the tenth national ambitions. Aircraft carrier battle groups will be formed in 2020. The Russian Far East Academy of Social Sciences expert Pavel Ivanov Mallorca door, said China has never built an aircraft carrier, has been carefully studied in other countries in this field experience. No doubt, within a few years they will get these experiences. According to Japanese reports, China is ready to set sail in 2014 with its first a general power of aircraft carriers, nuclear power plant in 2020.
China is not a real threat
In fact, Japan has been concerned about this project and asked China to provide details. According to Russian political scientist Stanislav Futa Vlasov analysis, now we can talk about is a growing political ambitions, rather than one from China's new military threats.
He said that most likely, the construction of aircraft carriers is only a symbolic show muscle, rather than the Japanese in the eyes of a desire to achieve military superiority. U.S. aircraft carrier in the development of a region or another region to establish its existence. Now, despite the interest in China, there is no such extensive capacity expansion. I do not think this is a real China's neighboring countries or specific threat.
Although there are other signals that China tried to challenge the United States - a country with the largest aircraft carrier fleet. Now that China's military budget of the Navy to get 1 / 3, in addition, the Navy should provide oil and other imported raw materials security. Meanwhile, the U.S. standing in the middle of China and raw materials, in some areas to stop Beijing's influence extends to the region. It is clear that China is enhancing its competitiveness in the sea. Meanwhile, China is developing anti-ship ballistic missiles, in order not to lag behind the United States Navy equipment. These weapons can destroy an aircraft carrier. China has also tested its fifth-generation stealth fighter.
