Description

This is ex-soviet HCC "Riga", which was never build up finally. First its owner was Ukrain, which has called him "Varyag", then it has sold in 1998 it to China firm for a scrap-metal price, for "casino and hotel building" purposes. Now it came out, that it all was a crap, and "Varyag" is now "Shi Lang", China battle carrier.
And 4 more are building...

As far I know, USA got 11 carrier groups (carrier without support is just very expensive toy, but with support it's very-very-very expensive weapon). And China fleet would be concentrated around the Taiwan... But it won't be soon. Some 10 years more...
