China’s New Super Carrier: How It Compares To The US Navy’s Ford Class – Naval News

A new aircraft carrier, currently under construction in Shanghai, is the most visible sign of China’s rapidly expanding navy. It is larger than China’s current two carriers and differs in key aspects. But the natural comparison is to the U.S. Navy’s latest carriers, the Ford Class.

Great comparison, Alex. It would be interesting to know how the U.S. compares to China & Russia in terms of sensors, communication systems, and weapon capabilities.

Didn’t get to finish my post W.T.F. ??? Anyway, if the U.S. is unable to manufacture their own DRONES instead of buying Chinese drones, and the explanation we get, is the U.S. DRONES are of poor quality and have very few sensors, and are dearer than the Chinese equivilent, then I’d hazard a guess the U.S. Navy electronics fall into a similar category.

China is a peer to the US empire in a way the Soviet Union Never was,China economically will supersede America in 5 years,in some ways it already has,but China’s power will be completely confirmed..In terms of modern warfare,Aircraft Carriers only work against weak Nations,even if idiot Neoliberals tried to go to war with a lesser power like Iran,Aircraft Carriers would be sitting ducks from a massive missile onslaught…We are in a New era,many people who get their information from MSM,are seemingly unaware of this monumental change in the balance of power,in Vietnam the US was defeated by a guerilla army,but… Read more »

China already supersede the US in REAL economy, the kind economy that infact make stuff, most of the US ‘numbers’ are total phony because it’s made-up inflated or simply just on paper [or better virtual], all those finanicial shenanigans ponzi-schemes incl the entire fraudulent USD ponzi-scheme of all the financial mafia-cartels of wall street + the corrupt/criminal oligarchs are just a mirage, a ginormous bubble.

The Russians and the Chinese get more “bang for the buck”, as far as defence spending is concerned.

The Russian budget is less than a tenth of the US’s and they come up with stunning state of the art technology w/o looting plundering + robbing taxpayer society + country blind.

This FACT is beautifully demonstrated in the latest report emanating from the U.S. it’self dealing with their self made Drones. Trump band the Chinese drones in the U.S. insisting on building their own, allegedly fears of spying. Now it turns out home made drones cost three times as much as the Chinese drones, and are INFERIOR to the Chinese drones by not have even half the amount of sensors ect, that the Chinese drones have. Now if the Americans are unable to produce a simple thing as a drone, even on a equal basis, that says a hell of a… Read more »

The problem with Western nations is they always try to impose their own mindset onto Asian people’s. Never, ever giving credit that Asian people’s may not have such mind sets in the first place. Take the above post for example. The author ASSUMES the Occidental World wishes to dominate the World, just as the Western nations have done thru the centuries. Completely ignoring the FACT, that as a direct result of that type of thinking, we find ourselves in the situation we are in today World wide. Nowhere, have I seen any indication that the Occidental World is hell bent… Read more »

I wonder about the usefulness of those eleven aircraft carriers, seeing as they would be a prime target themselves and would have to be kept well out of harm’s way. Also, the idea of a naval battle between superpowers is surreal. So it seems to me that their main value is to provide profits for the defence industry, provide gainful employment for engineers and technicians, and to keep sailors, who would otherwise be unemployed, off the streets. The thalassocratic era has passed, let them cruise the seven seas if it pleases them and they do no harm.

Cruise the seven seas, sure, but THEY DO DO HARM. The aircraft they carry are all involved in the bombing and destruction of cities/towns/sheep herders homes in Asian nations. Don’t think for a minute, they are just harmlessly cruising around in the oceans.

I have a hammer in my kitchen cupboard that hasn’t been used for 20 years. It doesn’t go searching for nails to hammer into a piece of wood. It just graces the toolbox, reminiscent of what was or might have been. We must reconcile ourselves to the inherent uselessness of so much of the stuff that clutters modern life.

Mr. Mercouris, outstanding video. The experts are not generally comprehensive capable, but your report is understandable at numerous levels. 7 countries in 5 years..ignorance…Reports such as this is what the people need in order to get responsible government response.

Silly little Britain is not a fighting force anymore because our Tory government, and its only opposition which is just a Tory lapdog, is more interested in policing the homes of the wealthy Celebs and sports stars so that their feelings are not hurt. Other than that!!! The plebs can just suck it up.

Britain is DONE, has been now for quiet a while. But tries to elevate it’self to what it thinks is a meaningfull position on the World stage by constantly attacking Russia without substantiating evidence of it’s claims. As far as military power goes, the Brits are simply a warmed up fart, anything more than that, is only in the minds of their politicans.

Update to being expressed from Humanity in 1996 aftermath of application. Tested this and evidently this is not the collective that is correct. Will have to further review. Recent difficulties with shootout in that area, ref. Apple Phone was in challenge..may have had a disruptive affluence, this also in need of review.
