    The islands there r not that far from the mainland & act as natural a/c carriers; it's not the same as the relatively remote islands that China claims in the ice free SC Sea that need protection with the help of the CV/Ns.

    Russia is no worse than others, so it will not have a new aircraft carrier for at least 15 more years:

    There was an interesting quote on Balancer the other day from US post Iraq 1 war analysis: with slightly over 2* more planes & significantly fewer person hours/sortie the US Airforce produced 6.5* more sorties than the USN carriers.

    So as long as you're operating within range of shore bases land based aviation is significantly more efficient.
