The Chinese military will conduct large-scale landing exercises in August in the China Sea

Quote:
TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — On Monday (May 12) it was reported that China’s People's Liberation Army (PLA) is planning to conduct a large-scale landing exercise in August in the South China Sea with the aim of one day capturing the Taiwan-controlled Dongsha islands (Pratas Islands, 東沙群島).

The beach landing exercise will be carried out by the Southern Theater Command and will involve large numbers of marines, landing ships, hovercrafts, and helicopters: maneuvers on an unprecedented scale, according to Kyodo News.

Pic is fake, that many US Carriers would not bunch up in an easy nuclear targeted formation like that.
They don't have to.
That's how many Battle Groups, along with protective escorts? Our Navy does not spread itself thin
elsewhere by doing that. This is not WW2 thinking anymore, its strategic now.

pretty obvious the picture is fake. Not to many places in the world have a map in the sky. Its also pretty obvious china is a real threat right now.

Fake news. And that's not even a Chinese Carrier. It's an old pic of the USS Nimitz, I can tell by the Super Stucture.

I cant tell what the class is of that escort vessel is. There are so many, I would have to see a side profile.
But it is a cruiser. Probably a Ticonderoga.
