February 1, 2018 -- China’s first domestically designed and built aircraft carrier, the Type 001A Shandong (CV-17), might take to the sea for the first time in February, according to Chinese military experts.

The 65,000-tonne vessel is an improved variant of China’s only operational aircraft carrier, the Type 001 Liaoning – a retrofitted Soviet-era Kuznetsov-class ship purchased from Ukraine in 1998.

According to some reports, the new carrier could be inducted into China’s navy ahead of schedule by the end of 2018.
