'China Building second aircraft carrier : Reports'


What I learned :

I learned that China is building 
their own aircraft carrier.
Usually Aircraft carrier's are bought, but China is trying to build one on its own. Soon, China would have at least 4 carriers defending their growing economy and enlarge their blue-water navy. This was all because over the past few years China's military budget has increased.

China's first aircraft carrier is called 'Liaoning'.

FUN FACTSOne US aircraft carrier has a more powerful air force than 70% of all countries.

American aircraft carriers can desalinate 400,000 gallons of water per day.
The command center structure that rises above the flight deck on an aircraft carrier is called "the island".

Summary :

China building their own aircraft carrier is a new approach to increase a country's military strength. Since it not only saves the cost but also it doesn't need to be transported all around after its finished. Soon I believe most countries will take up this technique and soon build their own military force.
