ex-Varyag has left the dock....

Recommended Posts

Whether under her own power or under tow, Varyag left the Port of Dalian according to Xinhua News. A quick search of the various Chinese forums shows an empty bearth where Varyag was supposedly tied up. Visibility was quite poor at the time which assists in a quiet/covert departure. Xinhua reports that the initial trial won't be long and that the vessel will return to complete her 'refit' soon.


Hopefully we'll be seeing some periscope photos in the near future, hopefully they'll include the tug. B)
