First flight in the pacific, what a joke? What has been the PLAN doing for the past years? No wonder the PLAN is the biggest laughing stock of the USN and the JSDF for having a million men swim in the taiwan straits if China do a amphibious landings in taiwan . Please, work hard and triple your efforts to play catch-up on the over the horizon capabilities with the eminent navies.
