all obstacles the way to go to China for four years
Chinese people to buy the “Kuznetsov” was the news that the U.S. is very unhappy. Background of China Taiwan companies have repeatedly tried to contact with record company president Xu Zengping law, would like to use high-priced acquisition of the aircraft carrier. The Xuzeng Ping said, willing to let the “Kuznetsov” was to serve the country, whether it is aircraft carrier hull, design drawings, or bought, what you can.
Unexpectedly, when the “Kuznetsov” was arrived in the Turkish Black Sea waters to the north, through Turkey to prepare the control of the Bosphorus, the “reminder in a third country under the” Turkish government to block, to “the hull is too large, affecting the normal Bosphorus other vessels sailing” for such reasons, ordered the “Kuznetsov” was returned to the Black Sea.

2005 年 4 26, Army fans found, “Kuznetsov” was moving. It is slowly dragged into the first 300,000-ton dock workshop, cleaning up litter, re-painting. To early August, “Kuznetsov” was the new Chinese navy gray paint appearance, began to rebuild within the overall system. March 19, 2010 morning, “Kuznetsov” also driven by the tug, moored at the dock from the original only “a wall” 300,000 tons of South outfitting pier. The flight deck there is a new style from the back fence. Closed compartment to the hull design, the abolition of all existing windows, greatly improving the living and three anti-ability.
the same time, military fans and enthusiastic foreign media have begun to suspect the “Kuznetsov” was the weaponry and combat performance. Foreign media speculated that the “Kuznetsov” is equipped with a domestic sea “red flag” -18-mounted short-range ship-to-air missile; made 30-mm Su Shebao 730, 3000 rounds/minute; made 10 anti-submarine rocket launchers depth charge ; aircraft carrier more than 50 (due to removal of a large anti-ship missile unit, increasing the deck of the hangar area) and so on.

It will become China’s naval modernization is an important turning point.
worth mentioning is that the “Kuznetsov” was the entire conversion process, training and exercise can be a group of Chinese-made aircraft carrier of the future engineering and technical personnel, aircraft can achieve special steel, large military boiler , turbine, steam equipment, such as aircraft landing block device engineering technology accumulation. These are not money can be measured.
observers have pointed out, the introduction of a group, study group, mature group, manufacturing group, this very Chinese characteristics, military model aircraft carrier in the development process in China will undoubtedly continue to reproduce.
