    Why would India dream about Pakistan operating something that could, given decent escorts, likely take on the entire Indian fleet at once? Aren't they rivals? Are the Indians masochists?

    Fake news.

    Given the resources, Pakistan Navy has far better places to spend the money on. Aircraft and subs come to mind.

    16 departs Dalian following several months of maintenance and refit. 17 is warming up in preparation for another sea trial.

    Rumor has it that the two carriers may operate together. I personally do not believe this to be true. Possible, but unlikely.

    I am surprised they did not upgrade the radars on the CV-16.
    I guess they wanted to spend as little time on the refit as possible.
