I'm sorry WHAT? Just that comment demonstrates the level to which any fanboy is able to reason when jumped up on nationalistic fervor. Ignoring, deck space, jet fuel capacity, hanger space, or even just plain old SIZE as deciding factors... Just on sortie generation alone, (A KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR FOR ANY CARRIER) any sailor would choose Liaoning/Type 002 over Vikramaditya. Vikramaditya is a carrier with its island IN THE MIDDLE OF ITS FLIGHT DECK. It also has a lift right in the middle of the flight deck like many helicopter carriers. It doesn't even have blast deflectors.
