A photo released by China's Xinhua news agency shows China's third aircraft carrier, Fujian, preparing to sail from the Shanghai Jiangnan Shipyard port in Shanghai on Wednesday (5/1/2024).

"The Bamboo Curtain Country" China has once again shocked the world by launching the third aircraft carrier. This launch makes China the second country after The United States as the country with the most active aircraft carriers. The US currently operates 11 aircraft carriers operating in aircraft carrier battle groups and spread across various sea areas of the world.

China's third aircraft carrier is named Fujian, after the name of a Chinese province which is located directly facing the Taiwan Strait. Fujian just finished undergoing its first sea trials on Wednesday (1/5/2024) or two years after the initial launch at the Jiangnan shipyard, Shanghai.
