The Tiafeng (Typhoon)

Artist conception of the planned Future Chinese aircraft carrier scheduled for launch in 2020.

The existing Chinese carrier Liaoning is the old Russian Carrier Varyag which was purchased by the Chinese for $18 million and refitted as a functioning carrier, commissioned in 2012.

The name Varyag was then given to the one of the two remaining Slava class cruisers. (Pictured below)

A dangerous balance of power. Here is the lilneup in our day, but the PLAN adds two carriers in the Liaoning and Taifeng, and a number of new destroyers and frigates to beef up their fleet considerably by 2021.
