China has introduced its third and most advanced aircraft carrier.

The aircraft carrier was launched at a port in Shanghai and landed with state-of-the-art systems.

Named the Fujian, the ship is designed and manufactured entirely in China.

Its catapult assist launch system is the most important upgrade compared to the Sky Jump style system in other Chinese aircraft carriers.

The new system is similar to the US aircraft carrier ships, which will help China launch several types of aircraft from Fujian at high speed with more weapons.

Fujian also has blocking devices that weigh 80,000 tons.

The navy is being modernized due to tensions between China and the United States.

China’s first aircraft carrier was the Liaoning, an unfinished Soviet-era ship, which China bought from Ukraine in 1998 and completed in 2012.

Using the ship’s technology details, China built the first locally-built aircraft carrier, Shandong, in December 2019.

Now the third aircraft carrier will be tested first by China and then used by the Navy.

According to one estimate, the aircraft will be operational by 2023 or 2024.
