Pictures below are of the Liaoning aircraft carrier in model form. Displayed on deck are various aircraft, including the J-15 fighter and the Kamov Ka-28 (Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) helicopter.
What is most interesting is a model of an Airborne Early Warning (AEW) aircraft on the Liaoning. This suggests China intends to equip its aircraft carriers with force multipliers such as a fixed wing AEW capability.
Such an addition if realized, would significantly increase the combat potential of the Liaoning's J-15 fighter aircraft, which recently conducted their first recorded landings aboard the Liaoning..
