CHINA-MILITARY-MARITIME-FILES

Credit: STR / Stringer
(FILES) This file photo taken on September 24, 2012 shows China's first aircraft carrier, a former Soviet carrier called the Varyag, docked after its handover to the People's Liberation Army (PLA) navy in Dalian, northeast China's Liaoning province. The debut of China's first aircraft carrier marks a symbolic milestone for the growing military power, but analysts said the second-hand vessel remains far from a strategic game-changer. China officially put the vessel into service on September 25, 2012, flexing its muscle just as Asian maritime rivalries are at boiling point with China and Japan locked in an increasingly hostile dispute over islands in the East China Sea.
