    Do you know what ports are closer,to PLAN, than Singapore or Yokosuka that are deep enough to port another CBG?

    Re: All About The Chinese Aircraft Carrier Thread

    Thanks for defining where the Borr Sea is. I did see the first description that the Borr Sea is north of the Yellow Sea but I was confused as to which part exactly. Up till now, I didn't even know that segment in the corner had it's own name, thanks for answering the question.

    Sczepan: can you show the map tell them where is " 渤海 " ? thank you !
    or aney body can show it?
    the Borr-Sea as I know is also knowed as Bohai-Sea or Golf of Chihli



    it is a very shallow water, with only a view ports, which can be used by big draughted ships like carriers. These ports in the yellow sea are Dalian, Lüshun, Shanhaiguan, Yantai, Weihai and Quingdao


    The large areas of white near the coast of China and extending offshore are areas where the reflection of light from the sediments is so bright that it is interpreted as clouds. The same problem affects the southern coast of Korea.

    Remember, the Kiew was towed only bey extremly high tide (high water, flood) and is now in a closed pool.

    Thats coming because the sediments of the yellow river filled the yellow sea, so this is now a very very shallow water, carriers only could operate in small aereas - which is very dangerous.

    Ahh.....Bohai Sea I'm well aware, now my memory is jogged. Didn't know it had another name (Borr Sea).

    Cool Re: All About The Chinese Aircraft Carrier Thread

    I also didn't know that Bohai was called Borr. It is shallow for a CV, but channels & harbors could be dredged up- the same way it was done in San Diego (and probably elsewhere) for the CVNs homeported there. Besides, I didn't categoricaly say that only that area of the Yellow Sea is the best for them! I'm not going to argue about basing anymore- opinions differ depending who you talking to.

    Re: All About The Chinese Aircraft Carrier Thread

    Hi Sczepan:
    thank you very much!
    your right,it's deffint translation.
    " hai " means "sea" in chinese.Bohai is same Bo Sea or Bohai Sea.
    China call PLAN North Sea Fleet not call Yellow Sea Fleet because there are 2 sea in north.
    I have to say sorry to you - Blue Jack I could'nt give you a correct translasion.
    thank you!

    Re: All About The Chinese Aircraft Carrier Thread

    I think it's still Bohai Sea. Not aware of any translation to Borr Sea. It's pretty cool, I actually visited some of the North Sea Fleet base and the boundary of Bohai Sea and Yellow Sea this past summer.

    Anyhow, let's get back on topic everyone.

    Re: All About The Chinese Aircraft Carrier Thread

    I think that the PLAN should have both ski jump and catapault carries though i would prefer catapault carriers over ski jump carriers due to the aircrafts can carry full load upon launch. Making it able to fight air to air battles and deliver air to ground battles. PLAN should have 2 ski jump carriers and 4 catapault carriers

    No ports that the USN would be allowed to use. I mententioned Subic because of the ties the US has with the RP. And the on going military exersise's between the US and RP.

    Wink Taiwan Official Warns Of Chinese Naval Supremacy

    Here is Taiwan's own assessments (they most probably have substantial intelligence capability inside the PRC) of the PLAN's current & future carrier related developments:

    Taipei (AFP) Nov 26, 2006
    A Taiwan defense ministry official warned Taiwan badly needs submarines to defend itself against rival China's rapid naval expansion, including plans for two aircraft carriers by 2020, a report said Sunday. ..
    Analysts fear China's naval expansion may eventually nullify the US naval presence in the region.
    Chen Yung-kang, an official from Taiwan's defense ministry, said the half-completed Russian-built carrier Varyag was currently being repaired in Dalian and would be ready for Chinese navy training purposes in six years, United Daily News and Apple Daily reported.
    In addition, "the navy of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) plans to build an aircraft carrier of its own, which is scheduled to begin operation by 2020," Chen said.
    Analysts say China would then have potentially two battle carrier groups to deter any US attempt to come to Taiwan's rescue, should war break out in the Strait. (emphasis added in all cases)

    Re: Taiwan Official Warns Of Chinese Naval Supremacy

    I thought the Varyag was 70% completed when China bought the aircraft carrier in 2002 and its been 4 years that China has had it. It should be more than half completed by now, shouldn't it? Since the PLAN moved the carrier to Dalian in June 2005 thats more than a full year that PLAN has had it. Also it takes roughly 3 years to make a carrier so why would the PLAN domestic carrier take 14 years to be ready. I would give the PLAN until 2008 for the design. 2010 for the engineering. 2014 for the carrier to be ready. Just an own opinion

    Those figures and conjectures work well for an indigenous carrier that the PLAN builds. I believe it is possible that they will have one of their own by the 2014 time frame as you say, maybe even earlier.

    I believe the Varyag will be launched much sooner, in the 2008-2009 time frame and will serve as an operational carrier carrying out training and other PLAN duties in preparation for the second and then third PLAN carrier...but that's just my own opinion.
