China's J-15 fighters take off from and land on the country’s first aircraft carrier Liaoning. (Video: CCTV)

Note.  I've heard my readers and now I see it for myself.  Those big fighters have to launch with basically a bare bones payload.  They might be "forward" deployed in a fight but they won't have much staying power in a fight.  Now I understand why those artificial islands are so important.  Their carriers are more for show than go in a naval engagement.
