China holds live ammunition drill on aircraft carrier 17 December, 2016

The Chinese Navy recently conducted a drill for a large fleet of naval vessels and aircraft including aircraft carrier Liaoning in the Bohai Sea.

In formation with several destroyers and frigates, the flag ship carried out training in reconnaissance and early warning systems, air interception, sea assault, air-defence and anti-missile exercises.

Carrying live ammunition, several batches of Shenyang J-15 carrier-based aircraft had performed strike exercises.

The J-15 is a carrier-based fighter aircraft in development by the Shenyang Aircraft Corporation and the 601 Institute for the Chinese People's Liberation Army Navy's aircraft carriers. The aircraft is based on the Soviet-designed Sukhoi Su-33 and is fitted with domestically produced radars, engines, and weapons.
