Hmmmm. This thread was begun in 2007 (now nearly a decade ago!) with the prediction of a home grown CVA by 2010. And seven years after the predicted date, still no operational home grown CVA. Clearly, building a CVA is a much more difficult undertaking than most folks appreciate. And then assuming that was done, equipping such a CVA with an air wing is also very difficult, and then actually operating the CVA and its embarked air wing effectively and safely is even more difficult. It'll be interesting to see how much money the Chinese will be willing to sink into this effort.
