    I have no idea on the Shandong, but for the Liaoning can be explained below:

    I would believe the opposite of what Interpid claims, for China, the CV-16 and the CV-17 will represent the totality of Chinese naval aviation capabilities for the next half decade at least until China gets their next carrier up and running and even then they will represent a significant portion of carriers that China can call up in an emergency even if they are classified as "carriers".

    By that logic, it could have been CV-14, 15 or CV-17, 18. I don't think PLAN is so arbitrary and sentimental as SCMP and Minnie Chan. Though I do find that starting from 16 is mysterious.

    The Chinese use the same shirt colors and the same hand signals as the US Navy. Therefore, I do not consider it unlikely that they chose the same penannt number for their main training aircraft carrier as the one with the most take-offs in the US Navy.

    5 jours après sa livraison à la marine chinoise, le porte-avions 17 Shandong a pris le large le 23 Décembre, probablement pour démarrer une série d'essais nationaux et d'entraînements d'équipage. Il faudrait encore 1 à 2 ans pour que le bâtiment et son groupe soient opérationnels

    I don't get what you are trying to say.
    1. even though PLAN may emulate some USN practice, why copy a number 16 from USN?
    2. Or, if 16 is a PLAN number, it could not be a "most take-off" because there was non in PLAN before CV-16.

    What happens when they’ve built 15 nuclear carriers, how will they number the 16th?
