China-made aircraft carrier will be launched next year


China’s first aircraft carrier, the Liaoning

Singtao Daily reports Thursday: Sources say that China is now building two aircraft carriers, one of which, a new one entirely built by China on its own, will be launched next year at the earliest.

As for China’s carrier-based aircraft, which remains a mystery now, Singtao quotes Xu Yong, a teacher at Air Force Command College as saying that J-15 will be the aircraft on the Liaoning. Quite a few top pilots are being trained repeatedly in operating the aircraft on the carrier to achieve accuracy in their skill. “There is a great possibility that they can achieve the goal within this year.”

According to experts, the major problem for China in building its aircraft carrier fleet is the lack of carrier-based aircraft. If that problem is resolved, China’s fleet of aircraft carriers will take shape sooner.

Of course, J-15 is only the fighter required by carriers. Carrier-based airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft are indispensable. There was report that for its carrier China has developed one based on its Y-7 transport aircraft, but we believe there have to be further tests on the Liaoning for further modification to really meet the requirements.

Singtao says, according to Air Major General Qiao Liang, there have to be several stages of development for the Liaoning to really have combat strength, including training of various service personnel to fully master their work skill, the coordination between the ship and its air force personnel, the formation of a carrier combat group with destroyers, frigates and submarines, and the integrated combat training of the entire group including the AEW&C aircraft. Qiao expects that 3 to 7 years are necessary to complete those stages of development.

About chankaiyee2

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
