    I don't know what it is, but there is definately something in the Indian mindset that can't take any PRC's achievement!

    My opinion: never. They do not plan to fully operate them.

    Now let this be a lesson to all you young men out there! (I assume that most, if not all, posters here are men)!

    Some reason, marrige anniversary is important to them, where as to me, it shouldn't be any different if you live everyday the same as the wedding day! Who said romance is dead! Lol

    So you're expecting the PLA-N will use both CV's as training vessels until Carrier 003 comes online?

    The Z-18 was already part of the military parade. So they are ready for deployment.

    Really?! So Intrepid what in your opinion is the purpose of the PLAN having two large aircraft carriers? Just for a show or what? Thank you!
