Why is this interesting? Because the Chinese have made a choice. They've chosen JLOTS over Sea Basing.
The Chinese haven't appeared to be cost conscious when it comes to defense spending. From stealth aircraft, to a modern jet transport, modern armor, advanced destroyers to state of the art amphibious ships...the Chinese haven't been penny pinching.
Which begs the question. They've copied everything else, so why not the sea base. Do they see the same issues with it that I do?
