Vader, several things:
What is "cut doughnuts" actually? I know "cut", I know "doughnuts", but don't know the slang when used on Navy.
I agree absolutely, [joke] next time PLAN go out for a stretch at seas and oceans, I nominate Lord Vader to be our speaksman to "demand" the pacific policeman and island-chain watching-dogs to provide necessary room for our stretch. [/joke]...I really feel The PLAN needs to step up it's training...
- But seriously, this TRAINING aspect can play as "finding who's better", as well as "finding who's worse".
Besides USN itself, talking about anti-CVBG battle-readiness, those who favours RUSSIANS HAVE A BETTER TRAINING please raise your hands. - and budget-cutting Brits or Gaulish? - or "share-the-same-encryption-channel-with-US" kind of client country like JSDF? (in my personal opinion, Japenese Navy, in the name of SDF, is better than Dutches)
Pick a less rotten apple from a rotten apple tree, PLAN is still your top choice.
So, from Bltizo:
I agree.Out of the nations in the world currently I think maybe China has the best shot at defeating CVBGs with their ASBM, FACs, SSK/Ns, anti ship fighters, yeah? Of course that's because they have the doctrine, leading to the construction of these weapons.
Russia would come second?
To make it easy for reference, I consider the scenario is "USN invading the abovementioned countries, who got a bigger shot?". Because it is hard to analyse in real-life, China and France don't have a chance to success in invading each other by navy, on their own, for one.
