All equipment mounted on the first Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning (modernized Soviet Varyag) is developed and produced in China, says an official from China's Academy of Military Science. As for him, that equipment has reached the level of "reliability and maturity", reports focus.stockstar.com on Sept 28.

According to director of the Institute for Naval Information, all equipment of the carrier, particularly radars, communication systems and navigation aids are designed and made in China. Deck-based fighter J-15 is a modified version of J-11B fighter and imitates design of Russian Su-33. The heavy twin-engined fighter has a frame with large interior volume, improved combat capability, and long flight range. American media reports that those aircraft will be powered by Chinese engines WS-10A Taihang.

In contrast to J-11B, frame of J-15 fighter has improved corrosion resistance, foreplanes, and folded wings for carrier deck landing.

Earlier on, there were suppositions in the Internet that the new stealth fighter J-31 was designed for aircraft carrier Liaoning. However, experts say this airplane has "immature" technology and may be stationed on new-generation aircraft carriers designed on the basis of Liaoning.

New destroyers Type 052D equipped with missile defense system analogous to American Aegis are designed to escort prospective aircraft carriers and protect them from enemy aircraft and missiles.
