    The Varyag is currently being refitted. Although its expected primary use will be a training ship, it could be made fully operational.

    Two indigenous 60,000 carriers, possibly by 2015.

    Hopefully it will become operational as it seems like a big waste of resources just to use it for training. In fact I don't think any existing countries use any of their aircraft carriers for training only.

    I think you may be right about it being a training ship. The PLAN needs to get its feet wet in the carrier game and I can't foresee many scenarios where the PLAN can rely on the Varyag to do the job without support from PLAAF ground based aircrafts.

    Sorry mate this is an Air craft carrier amusement park and you certainly can't take one of those to war.

    Interestingly I've been to something similar in the US where they turned the USS Yorktown into an tourist attraction. (I even got to spend a week living on deck and in the crew quarters)

    My grandfather served on this ship (which is a Type 051 Luda).

    May he rest in peace.
