With any luck, it will run aground on the shoals of one of their fake islands they illegally occupy in international waters. High time to confront and check mate these Chi-coms whatever and wherever they operate…
China is the real trouble maker in the world, they’re the most pressing threat the West has faced in over 60 years. The build up of their military is being one with one purpose only, to be THE most powerful military in the next 30 years. They are hell bent on world domination, and their navy left unchecked, will be able to deliver precise choke holds at every international shipping lane bottle neck. You wouldn’t know anything about that by reading Finnish newspapers and listening to the chuckle heads in government and in the business community. It’s all back slapping and money exchanging hands.
China’s first domestically built aircraft carrier starts sea trials
China’s first domestically-built aircraft carrier set sail Sunday for sea trials, another important development as the country strives to build a powerful, modern blue-water navy.
China’s new carrier, built by the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation, set out from Dalian Shipyard in Northeastern China’s Liaoning Province Sunday, the country’s state-run Xinhua News Agency reports. The sea trials will “test the reliability and stability of the carrier’s power system and other equipment,” the report explained.
The unnamed aircraft carrier will be the second carrier to join China’s naval forces. The Liaoning, China’s first aircraft carrier, is a Soviet heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser China bought over two decades ago and re-purposed to serve as the country’s first aircraft carrier. The vessel was commissioned into the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) in 2012. It was declared combat ready four years later.
