    A Chinese PLA officer, General Yi Yin, recently told CCTV reporter, that China is building the world largest ever landing helicopter assault ships, which will get a standard displacement of over 40,000 tons and a full load displacement of over 50,000 tons.

    These LHAs will be much larger than any existing LHA in the world, which usually with a displacement of <15,000 tons, these LHAs willl be also larger than most aircraft-carriers in the world, save for these heavy ones in the US navy, as well.:cool2: Such LHAs, companied with other large landing ships, next generation DDGs and heavy aircraft carriers under constructs or planned, will help the PLA protecting China's interests far away from home.:cool2:

    Another good news is, the Principle Project Director of China CVN project recently told the media, that it is just a beginning of China's CVN fleet, bigger and better aircraft carriers will be built.:cool2:

    If you are making such a big vessel, why load them with helicopters?? They will be sitting ducks against any SAM system.

    As they say, bigger they are, better they fall. With this type of ship, enemy can easily figure out where they will land and take corrective action and concentrate their fire power in that area.

    yeah maybe in the next two decades you'll be able to build those heli-carriers but right now you guys don't have the right technology to build one!:cool2:

    what kind of proof do you like!just look at them.they are even struggling to refurbish an old soviet a/c Varyag!building a heli-carrier is far more difficult,first let them build a decent a/c as building an a/c is not a matter of joke!:wave:

    So, basically speaking you do not have any info that suggests that whether they can build this ship or not. You were just ranting here.

    Going by your logic we should also close down our FGFA and AMCA programs since we are unable to get LCA to work. Why didn't you suggest this 5 years ago, we already allocated 6 billion for PAK FA. And FYI Varyag has been commissioned.

    Which lalaland do you come from?
    There is no other country in the world costing one decade to build a ship. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
    Regular ones like China will probably have it done before 2015.

    Following your logic, then WASP and Mistral class ships are all obsolete. And India should stop building ACs.
    What is common for all those ships? Yes , they have escorts.

    It wont hurt try to think first before you post something.....

    mate PAKFA is a jv with the Russians and its a guaranteed success as the Russians are next only to the U.S. when it comes to the aviation industry!on the other hand the chinis only painted and refurbished that old tin bucket Varyag and i know it has already been commissioned but they have beautified it so much it looks more like a huge water borne casino instead of an a/c!and btw i don't usually rant,i am just showing the reality to the people in this forum!got it mate!

    I don't think ridiculing Chinese technology, is a right we possess.

    That said, if Chinese LPD's are the size they envisage, it significantly improves their expeditionary capability.

    One would tend to think that this, coupled with the Liaoning, are true signs of a move toward a blue water navy. And the pace at which it is happening is, frankly, worrying.

    Also, it seriously ramps up their ability to conduct multifunctional diplomacy with responding to humanitarian crises, piracy, etc.

    USS LPD's have long been an enduring symbol of US deployment from Africa to Afghanistan. We might be looking at a more aggressive, expeditionary China in the very near future.

    and who told you that we are unable to make LCA a success:toilet:!we have already made LCA mk1 but the IAF is not happy with it due to its low thrust as now they want the LCA to be a multi role fighter instead of a point defence fighter/interceptor.actually it was the real objective of LCA and it was being built to replace our Mig-21 interceptors!but don't worry the LCA mk-2 will be a sounding success and will be a beast of a machine when it will be completed by 2014!so until then ciao mate:rolleyes:

    and, pls remember that the dominator of global industry always naturely become the dominator of global military gradually,since world entered into industry revelution took place after 1750s

    China is just a routine...just like UK,Germany,USA and Soviet.
    Its huge industry capacity ensure that China would have a huge military power.

    You think? China will not be able to sustain such an op. Long term future yes. Not near term for sure. China does not have friends and bases like the West combine has. That is why China will not be able to mount an expeditionary op. Just making larger ship will not be enough.
