“The Liaoning successfully performed several tests of the combat system today and organized for the first time comprehensive combat training,” the People’s Liberation Army navy said in a statement. “Through this operation, we tested the carrier’s combat capability and tried the performance of its propulsion and seaworthiness.”
Two missile destroyers, the Shenyang and Shijiazhuang, and two missile frigates, the Yantai and Weifang, participated in the mission. They escorted the carrier along the whole voyage from Qingdao to Sanya.
Several types of aircraft, combat ships and submarines were dispatched to cooperate with the carrier during the mission, which simulates real combat situations, according to Zhang.
