World War 3 Fears Soar as China Shares THIRD Aircraft Carrier to Be Launched This Year
Daily Express - CHINA expects to launch their third aircraft carrier this year according to state media reports, after Chairman Xi Jinping ordered troops to be prepared for war "at all times".
The Type 003 is being assembled in a Shanghai shipyard just months after the Shandong, China’s second aircraft carrier, became military ready. Multiple outlets run by the Chinese Government say the third ship could be “only a few months” away from being launched.
China Central Television (CCTV) hinted last week the Type 003 will likely be debuted this year.
At the end of a programme showing off Beijing’s arsenal, it showed a model of what appeared to be an aircraft carrier under a red blanket, with the caption “2021, we expect…”.
The Global Times also quoted military expert Song Zhongping, who saId: “2021 is a year full of expectations, including the Type 003 aircraft carrier and also the H-20 bomber.
“It is time for our technological development to bear fruit.”....READ MORE
