Recently, news related to China’s first aircraft carrier the Liaoning was widely circulated among Chinese military enthusiasts.

Ukrainian engineer Valery Vasilevich Babich, the chief designer of the Varyag, the predecessor of the Liaoning, was hired by a ship research and design institute company in Qingdao, east China’s Shandong province.

Valery has called the Liaoning no ordinary training ship, and its historical mission is to provide necessary theoretical and technical support for the localization of China’s successor aircraft carriers. He also believes the Liaoning will shine brilliantly, and its operational performance is likely to be far ahead of the Varyag.

The Liaoning, China's first aircraft carrier, was refitted from the former Ukrainian vessel, Varyag.
