According to the Russian world arms trade center site on August 10 reported that China’s first aircraft carriers – the” Kuznetsov “was already a week three (10) sea voyage began its first test. The sea trial is not expected to be too long time, after which the ship will return to the dock in Dalian, continue to accept conversion.
Russian media said, “Kuznetsov” aircraft carrier in the 1980s in the Black Sea city of Nikolayev shipyard started construction. However, from January 1992 onward, due to the Russian military lacks sufficient funds, resulting in the ship’s construction had to be suspended. By 1994, Russia finally decided not to participate in the “Kuznetsov” was the construction work. In 2000, Ukraine for $ 20 million will be completed in only 76% of the “Kuznetsov” was sold to a company in Macau, China. However, when the buyer claims to be transformed into an offshore casino ship. Some experts believe that the purchase “Kuznetsov” was at the same time, China also won all the ship’s design – technical documentation. Beginning in 2002, still in the unfinished state of the “Kuznetsov” was shipped to the shipyard in Dalian, China. Previously, Chinese officials have never admitted being on ship repair.
Russian media said the Chinese navy plans to “Kuznetsov” was used as a training ship aircraft carrier, in order to grasp the tactical and operational use of the future construction of aircraft carriers of the same type of technology. According to currently available data, the formation of the Chinese Navy aircraft carrier fleet is a key future component of development plans. According to experts, China’s first aircraft carrier made by the Jiangnan Shipyard construction, construction site will be in Changxing Island (where the necessary infrastructure has been built). It is reported that there has built four large docks and three assembly lines. Russian media said, according to sources, China’s first aircraft will be made conventionally powered aircraft carrier launched in 2014, a displacement of about 5-6 million tons, while the first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier will be launched in 2020, China’s aircraft carrier speed of implementation of the plan faster than the outside estimate. In the construction of aircraft carriers, China has also made the production and carrier-based early warning aircraft carrier-based fighter.
Russian media said, the future, China will build four Navy aircraft carrier battle groups deployed in the South China Sea and East China Sea. The main task of these fleets will be to ensure the Chinese navy in the distance offshore and ocean waters relatively close to the mainland to maintain our edge, we must also campaign for the implementation of the landing of troops and ships to provide air cover. Experts have pointed out, “Kuznetsov” was a sea trial will no doubt provoke Japan and Western countries on China’s military development “concern.” There is a recent Western media reports, China’s aircraft carrier will be possible to change the balance of power in the Pacific region and induce “the Cold War at Sea.” (Compass)
