Do you folks know approximately when China will officially deploy its first "Varyag" aircraft carrier for service to the sea with jet fighters on board?

China probably needs 3 aircraft carriers for EXPEDITIONARY forces use.

These will be the forces needed to support CHINA'S FRIENDS and ALLIES under threat by foreign forces.
Currently only the Persian Gulf area is the likely region that need such units.

With OFFSHORE oil, development of Central Asia, Russia, Xinjiang, Heilonjiang oil resources, and pipelines system.............less likely will see deployment.

It'll only be a INVESTMENT to show capability and future contingencies!

cheerios!

That would mean at least 3 to 5 more years I bet...

about the same time as the new generation US flagship carriers
No, I live above Sunset Plaza, it's a little house I rent and it's a little rundown but has a beautiful view, what about you?

The new generation US CVN is the CVN78, which has been launched and is alongside fitting out. The keel for a new vessel is being laid now.
GD is right about needing 3 carriers. 1 deployed, 1 working up for deployment and 1 undergoing refitting is the standard. So, this means China needs 6 carriers to have 2 at sea constantly and the ability to "surge" as the US demonstrated a few years ago.

This is no longer a serious discuss but chest beating nationalism.

so assuming China has 3 aircraft carrier in the near future.......US might have 13? The lion and lamb will lay together but only one will have a good night's sleep!

The Ex Soviet Relic cannot be seriously deemed to be fit for purpose as not battle tested......

GD is right in his hypothesis but this is real life and reality is China couldn't even build an aircraft carrier and the jump jets in the airforce fleet are not tested too

It will come true sooner or later.
I hope China's 1st Aircraft Carrier will be in service  soon.
