China may be building first indigenous carrier

Key Points

An unidentified hull in an advanced state of construction at Dalian shipyard could be China's first indigenous aircraft carrier
While a conclusive identification of the hull as an aircraft carrier cannot be made until work is observed on the upper decks and potential flight deck, the slow pace of assembly and outline suggests a military hull under construction

Satellite imagery suggests that China may be building its first aircraft carrier at Dalian shipyard in northern China.

Airbus Defence and Space imagery captured on 22 September suggests that the possible carrier is under construction in the dry dock associated with the refit and repair of Liaoning (CV16), the Soviet-era Kuznetsov-class carrier acquired from Ukraine that is now in People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) service.

The new hull, first noted under construction in imagery captured on 10 March, is in an advanced state of assembly.

PO3 Michael James - PO; It isn't really a question of "want to" but more a question of "inherently inclined to".

On a slightly facetious note, the United States of America IS "Loved" and "Appreciated" by the government of North Korea because without a boogeyman to scare the populace with they wouldn't last 48 hours.

Remember "No country has friends just interests." and if you are looking for international gratitude you are going to be waiting a REALLY long time.
