Close Up Photos of China's Carrier


Happy new year everyone.  I hope you're all well rested after the holidays. Let's kick this week off with these very, very close-up pictures of China's aircraft carrier, the ex-Soviet Varyag.

While we've written about the new weapon systems the Chinese are installing aboard her, notice these pics show some early 1960s-vintage RBU-6000 Soviet-designed anti-submarine rocket launchers. Nothing like some 50-year-old weaponry to outfit your "new" carrier. Although, another picture shows a more modern rolling airframe missile launcher.
