China's First Aircraft Carrier Battlegroup Conducted Livefire Exercises

China's Defense Ministry says the country's first aircraft carrier battle group has carried out its first live-fire exercise.

It said Thursday that dozens of ships and aircraft took part in the exercise "a few days ago" in the Bohai Sea in eastern China to test weapon performance and training levels.

The aircraft carrier, destroyers and frigates carried out exercises covering air interception, sea-based attacks and air-defense as well as reconnaissance, early warning and anti-missile systems.
