A rumor has spread on some military oriented sites that both PLAN carriers are hooking up for a spin around Taiwan. Any evidence to support this? The unfavorable rhetoric towards PRC is reaching unprecedented levels lately. I'm sure you understand why.

Politics aside, I cant recall the Shandong is "fully armed and operational" yet. Yes quoting Star Wars here.

Additionally, a flat top does not operate by itself, it needs a bunch other boats to make it a CVBG. We shall see.
