China Forms first Carrier-Borne Aviation Force

China Forms first Carrier-Borne Aviation Force

China has formed its first aircraft carrier-borne aviation strike force, significantly enhancing the navy's blue-water capability, amid maritime territorial disputes with neighbours including Japan and Vietnam.

"A carrier-borne aviation force has been formally established as part of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy," the state-media reported.

The forming of the force, approved by the Central Military Commission (CMC), demonstrates that the development of China's aircraft carriers has entered a new phase, Xinhua news agency quoted military sources as saying.
