    I have problem to comprehend the notion of 1 J-15 can shoot down 10 F-18E in 1 sorties, given a j-15 can only carry 8 missile, I really love to see how they can use 8 missile to down 10 fighter in a single sortie, really

    You got that correct -- ...right up to...

    That mean we would still be in international water. I guess that concept is too difficult to comprehend.

    J-15 can carry up to 14 PL-12B long range air to air missiles on twin rail wing pylons and beneath the fuselage. 5 under each wing with 2 twin rails and 1 single rail, 4 more under the fuselage.

    J-15 is a better air-to-air fighter than the F-18E but it will lack in the air-to-ground capability as it will not launch from catapults.

    Anyway the Chinese primarily need the J-15 to provide protection to the CBG.

    Correct. China mainly uses destroyers for anti ship. J-15 is primarily an air superiority fighter, so no need for catapults which are prone to failure in combat situations. About a third of US planes lost in war are due to accidents and malfunctions. Catapults cannot be counted on to work during war with China.

    A modern CVN-65 > CV Liaoning

    A 1960-1970s CVN-65 > CV Liaoning??? Nope

    BTW, it is none of your business, since you Viets never have an aircraft carrier, nor you have ever damaged a US aircraft carrier.

    Since the EMALS will become too invulnerable to the modern hackers.

    Therefore, our ideal nuclear aircraft carrier in the future will be EMALS + ski-jump, if the EMALS fails, then our aircraft carrier can still serve as a ski-jump one, unlike the Gerald Ford class, if its EMALS got hacked, then it can't even takeoff the aircrafts anymore.

    absolutely!
    There are more hardpoints on a J-15 than just 8.
    These cheerleaders and cohorts are just embarrassing themselves!

    Why not? If Rajnikanth (Indian Chuck Norris) is in the cockpit of the J-15 anything is possible...
    Once Rajnikanth killed 2 people with one bullet...
