The revelation means China will have two fully functioning aircraft carriers are capable of projecting firepower well beyond their borders in case of all out war.

The ship has been dubbed as Type 001A (CV-17) and is reverse engineered from a modified version of an aircraft carrier bought from Ukraine in 1998.

The carrier had been supposed to be turned into a casino, but once the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) got its hands on it, the army experimented with to find out the strengths and weaknesses.

Type 001A is now on its way to a designated testing zone in the Bohai sea which, until April 28, was a no-go zone.

Song Zhongping, a military expert and TV commentator, told the state-operated Global Times: “The first sea trials of China’s second aircraft carrier, built at the Dalian shipyard, are likely to take place in the Bohai Sea and Yellow Sea to test its power and design.”

China now has two aircraft carriers in its fleet following the launch of the Liaoning in 2012.

However, two more are on the way, according to state reports, which has caused the likes of the US, South Korea and Japan on full alert.

China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC) earlier this year posted on its website plans to “speed up the process of making technological breakthroughs in nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, new-type nuclear submarines, quiet submarines, maritime unmanned intelligent confrontation systems, maritime three-dimensional offensive and defensive systems, and naval warfare comprehensive electronic information systems”.
