China does have guided artillery but not as accurate to GPS guided munitions used by the United States. China is able to use GPS for this purpose but was unable to do so due to pressure and restrictions placed by the United States if their satellites are used for military means. That is why the laser, heat seaking, radar guided, anything except GPS guided missiles is the only pinpoint ordinance for China (for now).

China still has some technology bottle-neck in aircraft carrier.
It is in progress but will not appear in three or four years.

Well either way I think it's only a matter of time. The sort of mission the Chinese Navy wants to undertake requires aircraft carriers.

I think if it is complete, there would have been a massive ceremony. Do you have any idea the sort of propaganda value the announcement of the completion of an aircraft carrier has?
Also, it would be discovered soon enough anyways. There are certain things you can hide. An aircraft carrier isn't one of them.

I agree, from what i have read in other forums and articles there are rumors that China wont have a carrier until the years of 2010-2012, but those are all RUMORS! And yeah it would be very hard to hide a carrier the size of a football field. :P
