Description: The Liaoning is the first aircraft carrier deployed by the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN). In 1998, China bought the second ship of the Admiral Kuznetsov class, the Varyag which was 70% complete, from Ukraine to be completed by Dalian Shipyard. The 16 Shi Lang/Liaoning, ex-Varyag, was handed over to the Chinese Navy in September 2012 becoming its first aircraft carrier. The Chinese aircraft carrier differs in some aspects such as the weapon and sensor system from the Russian Navy's ship. China intends to equip the Liaoning aircraft carrier with F-15 Flying Shark multi-role fighters, Z-18F ASW helicopters and Z-18J airborne radar helicopters by 2015.
