    Here's the video. Three minutes of night operations, mostly J-15 take-offs and landings.

    Those night opps look good

    The one who flys at night has the advantage

    Reload, rearm and refuel in the dark very big step for China

    Loving these gloves where can I buy them ? :D

    Unlike last time seem there is no moon light Some reflection from carrier light. Other wise pitch dark on the 2nd image
    Or it is any comment?. Another thing seem to be serial landing and take off

    Only US is ahead of China in terms of carrier operations or maybe France could challenge for the 2nd spot.
    Indian's always boasted about their 5 decades of carrier operations, but I've never seen them doing night training in full pitch black conditions.

    China has 2 carriers

    But France has fixed wing Hawkeye for AWACS

    This extends the eyes and ears of the carrier strike group

    In a high threat environment China will need a serious number of escorts like Type 055 until the KJ-600 is ready

    We've been demanding/challenging/asking to see evidence of PLAN doing night take-offs and landings on Liaoning for some times now. When the evidence finally got released, they appear to be rather routine and nothing out of the ordinary. It's just another milestone in China's journey towards operating a full-blown carrier force.
