#1 Plans, schematics, blue prints? Why didn't they just come to the Burg?

#2 Didn't China get enough of a look at our surveillance aircraft back in the spring of 2001? How different is the E-2 from the EP-3?

#3 Much different. Plus all of the cypher equipment got changed between 2002 and today, so none of what they had is still current.

#4 And possessing a physical copy of a Hawkeye would let them do a lot of reverse engineering so that they could produce a smaller carrier-capable AWACS than the Yunshuji-8. That would let them equip their new carrier with a useable AWACS that could travel with it and its Carrier Battle Group.

#5 Actually maybe we should let them have an E-2; about 30 minutes trying to get a stubborn Grumman Ironworks landing gear to swing right or a wing fold to work, would have them so frustrated they would be jumping over the side the their new boat.....(been there, wanted to do that)
