The biggest English portal in China has released new pictures showing the J-15 fighter, also known as Flying Shark fighters, starting take-off and landing training on the new Chinese aircraft carrier CNS Shandong.

Carrying the hull designation number 17, CNS Shandong is the largest, mightiest and most sophisticated naval ship ever developed and built in China.

The aircraft carrier’s design is largely based on China’s first carrier Liaoning, which was itself built from the partially-complete hull of the Soviet Kuznetsov-class aircraft carrier Varyag.

The CNS Shandong measures about 315 meters (1,033 ft) long, with a displacement of about 55,000 tonnes (70,000 loaded). It has conventional propulsion systems and uses a ramp to launch J-15 fighter jets, the spearhead of China’s carriers, like CNS Liaoning. The ship also deploys several types of helicopters.

China’s second aircraft carrier can carry at least 36 J-15 fighter jets, some 50 per cent more than the country’s first.
