Beijing, Jun 20 (Prensa Latina) China reported that it successfully tested for the sixth time its anti-ballistic missile systems, for defensive purposes and without targeting any specific country.

The Ministry of Defense added in a brief statement that the exercise occured on Sunday night within the national territory and achieved the desired objective.

China previously developed such tests in 2021, 2018, 2014, 2013 and 2010.

The new test followed the launch of its third aircraft carrier named Fujian, designed and built entirely by Chinese professionals and equipped with the most advanced technology. The ship in the coming days will undergo mooring and sea trials before officially entering service.

It is the first of national manufacture to use electromagnetic catapults, a system similar to the American ones, which will allow launching a wider variety of ships with greater speed and more ammunition.

Its displacement at full load is over 80,000 tons and it is equipped with locking devices.
