The images from April, provided to Reuters by the Centre for Strategic and International Studies CSIS in Washington, reveal considerable recent activity during the last six months on a large vessel at the Jiangnan shipyard outside Shanghai. China has not formally confirmed it is building a third carrier, despite recent hints in state media, and the timing and extent of its carrier programme remain state secrets. Its first carrier, the Liaoning, was a Soviet-era Ukrainian ship bought second-hand in and re-fitted in China. A still-unnamed second carrier based on that design, launched in , was built locally. The Pentagon last week said that work had begun on the third carrier, but no images have emerged until now. Both Asian and Western militaries, and regional security analysts, are seeking information on the carrier, which is expected to be China's first large, modern platform capable of leading a full range of strike group operations. The effort to build a large, locally designed carrier is seen as a core part of China's extensive military modernisation drive, challenging decades of US strategic superiority in East Asia.
