The engineering behind these things is awesome ...

 

as is the engineering behind the things that may be used to destroy these things should the need arise.

These "Island Bases" accompanied with PLAN Aircraft Carriers might extend China's Reach far beyond what is normally estimated.If I were NATO I'd definitely be making some new anti-runway weapons.

I bet these bases would be very vulnerable to sabotage by sub born infiltration teams.

Heck, you might be able to take them out just using the sub itself. Anything that is stationary is a predictable target. Just start lobbing TLAMs from your submarine and it'll be shut down quickly. Just need more TLAMs.
