I guess one can sell anything by calling it new chinese weapon.
No offense to Chinese but there is indeed a lot of misinformation on the www nowadays

With apologies to Officer of Engineers:

I swear that Lego has got to be the largest arms manufacturer in China

Good grief. The cost of that Lego set is probably comparable to the price tag of an actual carrier. That thing's got to be six feet long.

I will NEVER forget the time one of the posters at my forum posted faked pix of a US "Stealth Spy Plane"*, only to have some kid in CHINA post the SAME pictures on WakiPak(Pakistanidefense.com) under the thread title "New Secret Chinese Stealth Plane" a few months later..

*- I of course knew but said nothing as the buzz around the net grew and daily website hits increased by a peak of about 1000%, lololol. Guy still posts on my site, ended up selling his story to a modeling mag and got himself a nice little payday, lololol.

If the doom-sayers are correct, and the next major conflict will involve China vs. the US, the crunch will come when the Lego built Chinese fleet meet up with the Martel built US fleet.
Covert operations will be carried out by a highly trained unit of GI-Joes, Barbie and her friends will be drafted in to provide USO entertainment for the troops.

Don't discount the Micro Machines. They're armed with butter cookie/cabbage warheads.

Actually there has already been a Chinese deriviative of the American A-10 Warthog, with VTOL capability.
I've found some prototype pictures on the web, note the state-of-the-art defensive gun turret.

Oh man, I wish I had pics of my lego navy ships (I only had some custom made patrol vessels and armed police boats). Due to the lack of gray they had a cool camo scheme of all different colors mixed.
