China's People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) has for the first time deployed itsLiaoning carrier group beyond the First Island Chain.
中国人民解放军海军(PLAN)首次部署辽宁号航母越过第一岛链。 

The carrier group is thought to have commenced its transit into the West Pacific on 23 December and passed through the Miyako Strait south of the Japanese island of Okinawa on 25 December.
航母被认为12月23日已经开始进入西太平洋,在12月25日通过日本冲绳岛南部的宫古海峡。 

The progress of Liaoning and her supporting escorts was monitored by a frigate and Lockheed Martin P-3C Orion maritime patrol aircraft of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) as well as by Taiwanese assets.
辽宁号和它的支援护航舰队行进中被日本海上自卫队(JMSDF)的一艘护卫舰和一架洛克希德马丁P-3C型“猎户座”海上巡逻机以及台湾地区的军舰监视。 

The PLAN ships sailed to the east of Taiwan and subsequently passed through the Bashi Channel to the north of the Philippines before heading west to port facilities on China's Hainan Island.
中国海军船舶航行到台湾东部,随后通过巴什海峡到菲律宾北部,然后向西驶往中国海南岛的港口设施。 

Photographs posted on Chinese online forums show that the carrier was berthed alongside at the naval base south of Sanya by 28th December.
在中国在线论坛上张贴的照片显示,12月28日该航母在三亚南部海军基地停泊。

During the transit Liaoning was accompanied by a Luyang III-class (Type 052D) destroyer ( Changsha ), two Luyang II-class (Type 052C) destroyers ( Zhengzhouand Haikou ) and two Jiangkai II-class (Type 054A) frigates ( Yantai and Linyi ).
辽宁号通过期间,伴航有一艘旅洋III级(052D型)驱逐舰(长沙号),两艘旅洋II级(052C型)驱逐舰(郑州号和海口号)和两艘江凯II级(054A型)护卫舰(烟台号和临沂号)。 

Before crossing the First Island Chain a Jiangdao-class (Type 056) corvette and a Type 903A replenishment ship were also in company but these appear not to have passed through the Miyako Strait.
在穿越第一岛链前一艘江岛级(056型)护卫舰和一艘903A型补给船也在编队,但这些船只似乎并未通过宫古海峡。 

Photographs taken of aircraft on the flight deck of Liaoning prior to the transit showed that at least 13 Shenyang Aircraft Corporation J-15 fighters were embarked, as well as at least one Z-18 helicopter, though it is not clear whether this was an airborne early warning or an anti-submarine warfare variant.
飞机对通过前辽宁号飞行甲板拍摄的照片显示,至少搭载13架沈阳飞机公司歼-15战机,以及至少一架Z-18型直升机,但目前尚不清楚这是否是一种空中预警和反潜战改型。 

The JMSDF reported that a Z-9C helicopter was monitored flying in the vicinity of Miyako Island but no other flying operations were reported. Photographs taken by a JMSDF P-3C showed no aircraft on the deck of Liaoning during the transit, although they were evident after arrival in Sanya.
 日本海上自卫队报告,一架Z-9C型直升机被监测在宫古附近飞行,但没有其他飞行操作的报告。日本海上自卫队P-3C的照片显示在通过期间辽宁号的甲板上没有飞机,但到达三亚后它们显现。

补充资料:跟辽宁舰突破第一岛链,为何选这5舰?》来源:凤凰网

央视援引日本防卫省公布的照片显示,中国航母编队共有六艘军舰,包括舷号为16的航母辽宁舰,舷号为151、171和173的导弹驱逐舰,舷号为538和547的护卫舰。其中151郑州舰来自东海舰队,171海口舰、173长沙舰来自南海舰队,538烟台舰和547临沂舰则来自北海舰队。

这就意味着,在这次远海训练,突破第一岛链的过程中,我海军三大舰队全部参与。
