    Why ? because some of the type 52 ship radar 346B has 500 km or more range
    Liaoning can act as fleet screen against incoming fighter Or organic fleet protector

    Are we sure that's a new photo? I see both carriers where one of them is in dry dock. Edit: definitely older photo as Liaoning isn't there when looking at recent photos of Carrier 2 (Type 001A).

    To be fair those island are 150 miles apart

    Passing through is hardly a scence

    Japan is over reacting
