China announced the delivery and commissioning Tuesday of its second aircraft carrier — the first built domestically — while also revealing its name, the Shandong, state-run media reported.

The carrier entered service at its new home, a naval base in Sanya on Hainan Island "at the doorstep of the South China Sea," after a "grand commissioning ceremony" overseen by President Xi Jinping, the Global Times reported.

The commissioning of the ship puts China in a small group of nations with multiple aircraft carriers as the country reportedly continues work on building a third.
