China launches 1st domestically-made aircraft carrier

State media has quoted military experts as saying the carrier, designed in China and built in the northeast port of Dalian, is not expected to enter service until 2020, as it will take time to fully kit out and arm.

It is China's second aircraft carrier, coming after the Liaoning, a refitted Soviet Union-made carrier that was put into commission in the Chinese Navy in 2012.

India should focus less on speeding up the process of building aircraft carriers to contain China in the Indian ocean and more on its economic development, Chinese official media said today.

China is widely expected to launch its first domestically made aircraft carrier this week, following its development at the Dalian shipyard.

Along with their role in protecting China's maritime interests, Chinese naval strategists see the carrier program as "about having naval power commensurate with China's worldwide status, to impress both external and domestic audiences", said Michael Chase, an expert on the Chinese military at USA think tank the RAND Corporation.
