    The Google Earth image, is that in Sanya? That during the Shandong's trip to Hainan? The two ships next to her are her escorts. The 052D must be one of the new Type 052D assigned to the NSF. The top looks clean and is not festooned with additional fittings like SSF Type 052D do.

    No where to hide! The cyber space can be so ruthless at times.

    You didn't translate it, lol
    Correct me if I'm wrong, Model of AEW Z-18J on CV17 Shandong

    Question, why just use a model/mockup?

    It is for crew training, regular fire fighting exercises. There is a fighter mockup, too ... on both carriers. Same on US carriers.

    Why do US aircraft carriers always have a stripped jet on them?
