Keeping an eye on the Long Game: Part XVIII

This addition: Varyag rising.

I always thought it was funny those who actually believed that the $20 million 85% complete Soviet Aircraft Carrier the Chinese bought in the '90s was going to be a casino. Phuleze.

The Chinese are taking the slow steady approach to getting a CV. Very Chinese. Very smart. Will be interesting to watch. Below is the latest from China Defense Blog (click for high-res) - but for some nice ones like the second, go to VaragWorld.

As for her condition - she is looking serious - that is for sure. I would like to get Byron to dig around some. You know the combo of Soviet construction and Ukrainian neglect left some nasty surprises.
