This would be an even better target than the varyag. The age of the carrier is ending thanks to technology such as that used in the China's carrier killer missile. The only benefit of carriers is use against weak states such as Libya. They do provide a propaganda benefit however this can go both ways. Imagine the propaganda loss if a Vietnamese sub takes it out. But then again China will probably need it when it gets bogged down in the Middle East after the oil it desperately needs.

China got its own Oil and there's plenty of that. Now it is better to buy everything they can as long they get anything for all the USD cash reserves stashed in China. It seems to work out quite well so far. Also China would like to protect their interests inside the countries were they invest in. A carrier nearby always might become handy. And what's wrong with a little piece of China moving around in International waters?

Interesting design but I would also echo that these are fantasy drawings. Not sure if China has the experience in carrier warfare to produce such sophisticated vessels right from the chart.

First man in orbit was 1961 after many nations had carriers of all kind. China had men in orbit, so you would not give the Chinese the credit to be able of such task?
