Beijing, March 30 (People's Daily Online)--China is conducting scientific testing and training exercises for its aircraft carrier, Defense Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun said Thursday.

It takes time for weapons and equipment to be developed from scientific research to military use, Yang said at a monthly press briefing.

"Right now, China is working on scientific testing and training exercises for the aircraft carrier platform and other new weapons according to the schedule. The follow-up work will be carried out according to the progress of the activities," he said.

For every journey, the first step is the hardest one. Yes, China is late in joining the club, but it learns fast. And in spite of (or because of) all their military spending, Americans still manage to unite the rest of the world against them...

This is China"s new flagship. It"s a 30 year old Russian design with a Chinese engine. In other words, it"s an antique. It"s a nice looking antique but belongs with old cars and monitor top refrigerators.
