The media in China predict the imminent release of aircraft carriers "Liaoning" and 001A in the sea

36
Against the background of claims that the Chinese aircraft carrier Liaonin may be written off, shots have appeared in the Chinese media showing the smoke rising above Liaonin, indicating a new launch of its power plants. As the representatives of the Chinese blogosphere, specializing in the ship's topic, write: "The aircraft carrier Liaoning is already under pairs."


The media in China predict the imminent release of aircraft carriers "Liaoning" and 001A in the sea


Recall that the PLA Navy aircraft carrier, against the background of numerous discussions about the “expediency of write-off,” was sent to the Dalian port shipyard for modernization work. It is known that "Liaoning" has already been transferred from the repair and modernization dock to the port.

Now, Chinese experts predict that by the end of the year, Liaoning could be launched at sea with the newest Chinese aircraft carrier (001А), which is also located in the port of Dalian.



For reference: the aircraft carrier became Liaoning after buying a ship from Ukraine in 1998 for a ridiculous amount of $ 25 million. According to the documents, the ship (at that time was called "Varangian") was acquired as a "future floating entertainment complex." As a result, the Chinese really "had fun", saving a lot of money on the acquisition of the ship, which eventually became part of the PLA as an aircraft carrier. Part fleet China appeared in 2012 under the number "16".

Recall that the 2019 year in China is scheduled commissioning of the second aircraft carrier - the project project 001A (the same, which was discussed above). Initially, it was about the year 2020, but now the statements in the Chinese media are such that its release to the sea can take place within the next month.

And in November, the Chinese Xinhua News Agency came out with material on the construction of a third aircraft carrier for the PLA naval forces. Officially, these data are not confirmed, but previously there was information in China that by the 2025 year, there would be four aircraft carrier ships in the country's Navy.

At the same time, a statement is issued by a retired PLA Navy officer, a military expert, Wang Yufei, who claims that in order to protect China’s interests in the oceans, China needs at least six aircraft carriers.

      Such as Liaoning - 6 pcs. they will not build. And with the wing, not everything is clear so far for these aircraft carriers .. And the transition to a real aircraft carrier under 100 kt. - they can collect the trough, launching installations (catapult) - in doubt ...

          we’ll see ... the smut is guaranteed to the Chinese and the dough will be laid out a lot ... it may happen that it’s not relevant it will be all ... The battleships were built by all the strong powers, but their century ended ...
          Expensive pleasure ... and dubious ... Have a couple Today - It would not be bad for Russia. But, not like Kuzya ... and a real aircraft carrier, with a group (AUG) ... - and this is the ruin of Russia.
          Maybe it's not bad that China rushed in pursuit of the United States on this issue ... let them butt
          The USSR was pissed - could not stand it fell ...

          Russia will live without China, but China without Russia will not. In addition, China is in a hostile semicircle (like Russia, in fact) so that they need peace behind

              Without a joke, the Chinese consider Russia to be the most powerful power. Not the United States, and not even China, namely Russia, because by the number of great military victories, Russia is harming the planet of everything that neither China nor the United States has

                Remind please. Isn't it Comrade Stalin? Which, we, as "grateful" descendants, pulled out of the grave and re-buried it in a quiet one, so that the eyes would not be callous. And then, the same friend was mixed with shit. Mikhalkovschina, etc. Do you think the Chinese have forgotten this? They have a very good historical memory, unlike us.

                    No, of course, because of this they will not attack. But they’re definitely not considered friends. Your words
                    Who owes China independence?
                    to which I replied — that to whom China owes all of this, we have denigrated.

                maybe they believe in the eyes, and behind the eyes, they donate their energy resources and military technologies.
                China has sharply reduced its investment in Russia.

            hi
            Background? A weakening northern neighbor with empty territories with huge resources needed by the Chinese economy to confront the United States. China does not hide its task - to become the No. 1 state on this ball. In Chinese schools, children are taught that the vast territories of Russia belong to it erroneously, temporarily and historically, they are Chinese. Recently, one woman complained about the camera, a Chinese man living on one of the TOPs told her that they say you Russians are temporary here. Soon everything will be theirs. Yes, we have not heard anything about the Chinese victories. Maybe because China has been fragmented and drowned in endless internecine wars for most of its history? Today, China is the second or first economy of the world (depending on how you count it). Their armed forces are developing by leaps and bounds, 5 years or earlier ahead of us in this component. During the Soviet Union, China actively opposed it, although it was weak and undeveloped as it is now. This is just my opinion. And KVM, if it is worth fearing a big war (although I doubt very much), it is with China, and not with the United States. America + allies are certainly the strongest geopolitical rival, but they will not go to a big war. The United States has no territorial claims on Russia and ideologically (and by weight, too) we are not rivals, now. China does not need allies; they will solve all their problems themselves. The strength of Siberia was unnecessary for China, the Kremlin needed more and those close to it, therefore, the conditions for gas supplies are not beneficial for Russia.

              Do you really believe in the Chinese threat, or just troll?
              The fact that China is building up power — as a sovereign country is doing the right thing — it would be strange to see this as a sign of aggression.
              But on the political map, Russia is China’s only strategic contractual and responsible ally with a coherent foreign policy, and not potential production. Yes, now is not the time to chase large territories, which, incidentally, has plenty of China.
              And how are you now different from any Balts pouring boiling water because of their flock to Russia?
              And the fact that there are some Chinese chatting on doubtful channels, so watch less

                nobody argues.
                China’s responsible ally with distinct foreign policy
                first channel? By and large, alliances are made between equals. The rest is protectorate, satellite, etc. About a coherent foreign policy on the part of the Russian Federation ... yeah.
                And how are you now different from
                I differ from some in that I remember a little the history of relations with China. read about the Daman incident, the war in Afghanistan and the role of China in it. Read how China kissed the gums with the United States against the USSR during the Cold War.
                You can, of course, shout something like "do not succumb to provocations" and so on. Only if we look back, history will tell us that this will not lead to anything good.

    I'm just happy for the Chinese. And sad for our fleet. For which there is always no money. (And no need to shout that new ships are coming to our fleet too. Everything that comes in is not full-fledged combat units. Not for a serious war, with a serious enemy. Yes, and the pace of construction wants a lot better! Some kind of half-dead "spider" or "bad weather" takes years to build, while others manage to build more than one ship of 1-2 ranks during this time!)
