Main Opnions

Fang Bing said:“We want to develop aircraft carriers to protect our overseas strategic routes, to maintain the safety of our strategic channels, including protecting our overseas interests at a certain time. We must think about this clearly, what we want to do with aircraft carriers.”


Fang Bing: There has always been a dispute between the "carrier group" and the "submarine group". This is mainly from the perspective of the cost-effectiveness ratio of operations. The focus of the debate is whether it is more effective to develop the carrier battle group or build dozens of submarines if the same investment is made? I think there will be different conclusions if we analyze and compare the needs of operations. However, the issue of developing aircraft carriers cannot be fully analyzed from the military point of view. I quite agree with the statement that "Aircraft carriers are not only strategic weapons in conventional weapons, but also conventional weapons in strategic weapons." It can be said that the aircraft carrier has the combat function of general conventional weapons, but also has the deterrent effect that general conventional weapons do not have.
