Recently China has successfully conducted flight landing on its first aircraft carrier, the Liaoning.

After delivered to the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy on Sept. 25, the aircraft carrier has undergone a series of sailing and technological tests, including the flight of the carrier-borne J-15 fighter.

Capabilities of the carrier platform and the J-15 fighter have been tested, meeting all requirements and achieving good compatibility, the PLA Navy said.

Designed by and made in China, the J-15 fighter is able to carry multi-type anti-ship, air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles, as well as precision-guided bombs. The J-15 fighter has comprehensive capabilities comparable to those of the Russian Su-33 jet and the U.S. F-18, military experts estimated.
