China Builds New Aircraft Carrier

China builds new aircraft carrier

China intends to beef up its maritime presence by building a second aircraft carrier. Beijing wants to exert its presence in the South China Sea, after complaining of “provocations” from the US, as well as defending its interests in the region.

Little is known about China’s aircraft carrier program, however a spokesman for the Defense Ministry, Yang Yujun, said the ship had been designed in China and was being built in the port of Dalian.

Very few countries have the resources and long-term planning to build aircraft carriers.  Only 4 countries have aircraft carriers at the moment: USA, Russia, China and France.
