Chinese Aircraft Carrier in Tianjin
Is that really a aircraft carrier? As far we know there is no aircraft in China, so what is this?
Chinese Aircraft Carriers
P.L.A.N (Popular Liberation Army Navy) of China has bought 3 Ex-Russian Aircraft carrier:
S.S.S.R. KIEV - now P.L.A.N. KIEV anchored near Tinjian
S.S.S.R. MINSK - now P.L.A.N. MINSK anchored near ShenZhen
S.S.S.R. VARYAG - now P.L.A.N. VARYAG anchored near Dalian
KIEV and MINSK are now parts of Chinese War entertainment parks (?????) for masses education (re-?????)
None of them seem to be any more enlisted in the active Navy
Jep, it looks very much like a park, cause there is a huge wall around the carrier. I was wondering how it could be able to leave this ring...
The Chinese bought this from the Russians...

I did a little searching and I believe it is the Kiev. It is a theme park now. Check Wikipedia for information.
If this is one of the 3 I wonder where the other 2 are?
