    China has made significant progress in building its aircraft carrier fleet over the past decade since the first one, Liaoning, was commissioned on September 25, 2012.

    China has refurbished the old Soviet model after buying it used in 1999, making it the country’s leading carrier. In recent years, the country has independently built its own aircraft carrier, the Shandong, which uses ski jump ramps to launch fighter jets. It was commissioned in 2019. Last June, with the launch of its new aircraft carrier, the Fujian, the Chinese navy now has three. The ship is the first in the fleet to be equipped with an electromagnetic catapult and can send aircraft aboard in quick succession. These days, Fujian has conducted a series of equipment installation and debugging, while continuing the relevant test missions.”Today’s progress in building the door fleet –China‘s aircraft would not be possible without the efforts of the whole country.In just 10 years, we have achieved the goal of the Liaoning aircraft carrier fleet sailing at sea with greatly improved combat capability and explored a aircraft carrier development path with Chinese characteristics,” said Ma Chao, head of the Fujian aircraft carrier’s air support department.Carrier-based aircraft also played a vital role in the Chinese Navy.In 2017, the shipboard air force successfully took off and landed at night on the Liaoning aircraft carrier for the first time.”The breakthrough in night techniques and proficiency in night landing means we are able to perform tasks by all weathers, especially at night and in complicated weather conditions. With all-weather combat advantages, we will have greater initiative in future wars. said Xu Ying, deputy captain of the aircraft carrier Shandong. defense penetration at very low altitude at sea and air-sea combat based on aircraft carriers over the past decade, in order to improve the combat capability of the aircraft carrier fleet.” In recent years, our aircraft carriers have achieved rapid development. It is safe to say that the development path with Chinese characteristics has been tested with real results. Now, the range of missions of the domestically made aircraft carrier Shandong is also constantly expanding as it develops rapidly. Our first carrier to use catapults, Fujian, is also building up strength. We believe that in the near future, the three aircraft carriers will show our power on a wider international stage,” said Cui Yonggang, captain of Liaoning.
