    Another Video from slightly different angle from New China TV . This one is billed
    Exclusive: Chinese aircraft carrier formation conducts trans-regional training
    I guess they try to familiarize themselves with SCS environment. And in case any one still doubt the weapon load of J 15, I post this Pic
    J15-Dummy load.png



    And this one is from Dec 2016 Live firing of YJ 83

    It's a well known phenomenon where Chinese TV editors speed up footage of movement, perhaps wanting to make it more sensational. Planes taxiing, vehicles and troops moving, etc are often given the unnecessary treatment.
