The Varyag, China's first aircraft carrier, is near completion. A video in China has spread that showed the country's aircraft carrier "Varyag" had completed installation of radar system in April this year. Before this video leaked, a series pictures of the aircraft carrier "Varyag", which is being built at a shipyard in More..Dalian, China, have been revealed and spread widely. The great 300-meter "Varyag" was reported to be China's first aircraft carrier. China purchased the 67,500-ton Varyag, an unfinished aircraft carrier, at $200 million from Ukraine in 1998 under the pretext of reconstructing the vessel as a maritime hotel. However, the purpose of the vessel was changed. See the related link below for the leaked footage of the carrier.
