    With over 1,000,000 hits, the older thread has reached a point to be replaced by this new thread...number II.

    The old thread:

    PLAN Aircraft Carrier programme..News & Views
    https://www.sinodefenceforum.com/plan-aircraft-carrier-programme-news-views.t6479/

    Will remain to view and browse. But it will no longer accept new posts.

    Any new PLAN Carrier news, photos, videos, views etc. shold be posted here.

    Here are some of the latest posts of the PLAN carrier program, Liaoning and 001A to get us started:

    I live to see those pictures of deck and air operations going on. Here those two are with a little higher resolution:

    The most I have seen on deck to date, is still eight. In these pics:

    LIaonin-8xJ15-01.jpg

    LIaonin-8xJ15-02.jpg

    LIaonin-8xJ15-03.jpg

    But I still believe they either already have, or will operate/exercise with more.

    One day we will see an actual PLAN Photo Op showing 16 on deck and four in the air like this CGI shows:

    Well, there are seven seen there...and that is a goodly amount.

    On an earlier post we saw this:

    LIaonin-8xJ15-02.jpg

    That's eight at once.

    I am still looking for something over eight. I would prefer something in the double digits...meaning 10 or more.

    Keep looking...the first one who posts and authentic picture of 10 or more J-15s aboard Liaoning gets an official "SD Atta BOY!" Award!

    Note. I say J-15s, not a combination of J-15s and helos. Otherwise that photo above would already fulfill the challenge.

    LOL

    True but ship modules still needs to be put together at the ship yard. That's where carrying large paper plans becomes more practical to check on the alignments and welding of the plates than say a tablet that one can accidentally dropped or damaged by anything.

    Yes...a very capable and heavy duty CIWS.

    ...and here she is pouring out a ton of fire down rang during a live fire exercise:

    Type 1130 CIWS  H PJ 14 (1).jpg

    Look at all of those 30mm casings streaming off of that thing!

    Its older brother - 730 - has proved with a short growl, a boat full of terrorists reduced into a collection of chunky bits.
    Yeah, and maybe they should think about how to retrieve those spent casings instead of weeing them into the sea just like that.
