    Default Aircraft Carrier in China

    Fine shot! but... this is not an Aircraft carrier. It's only a monunent to China dream for a real one.

    China has long wanted to build aircraft carriers. In 1973, former Premier Zhou En Lai reportedly said, "I am not satisfied with the fact that China does not have its own aircraft carrier." If you go to Shanghai, not far from the headquarters of the East Sea Fleet, you can find a newly built monument to the Chinese Navy's aircraft carrier ambitions, a building in the shape of a nearly full-size carrier in a riverside park. The East Sea Fleet is thought to be the likely host for the PLAN's future carrier force.

    In the 1980s and 1990s, Liu Huaqing, the former commander of the PLAN and at the time the only naval officer to become top vice chairman of the Communist Party's Central Military Commission, approved an ambitious research and development program for aircraft carriers. In 1985, the PLAN reportedly built a simulated carrier deck for jet fighter training. Then, in 1997, the U.S. Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) released a photo of a large Chinese carrier model floating on a lake.

    Well, she could have been a real vessel...except the fact that it is impossible to drive her to sea.
