The Navy Times has a new blog, The Scoop Deck, and one of their first finds really is a doozy. Apparently, some Chinese navy enthusiasts have proposed a giant, submarine aircraft carrier, carrying 40 fighter jets — this according to the blog China Military Report.
How feasible is this thing? According to reporter Phil Ewing,
this monster also carries 36 submarine-launched ballistic missiles, serves as a mother-ship for fast-attack submarines, can travel at the speed of light, changes Pepsi to Coke, finds your car keys, achieves perpetual motion and assures you the check’s in the mail.
