Good joke."PLAN only limit to first island chain".China intention is not match US ship to ship nor it want to operate all over the world. its main focus are ScS and 1st island chain, then 2nd island chain. hence it can focus all its force near asia for the next decade or 2, near their home base. it can continue to train its sailor in peace time and learn from others. There aren't any advance navy vs advance navy in recent history, hence no combat exp to speak of. The thing china lack is carrier exp and its battle group operation for now, which are new to them.
