    The argument for nuclear-powered surface ships being cost-effective rests upon total life-cycle costs over the course of >25 years.

    Personally I think China should worry less about minimising life-cycle costs to 2050 and more about maximising capability in 2025, 2030, 2035. The significantly greater up-front costs of a nuclear-powered carrier may not be a wise investment in a deteriorating strategic environment.

    I was factoring the date based on the information that had been given, not nexessarily sayng that it was my projeted date.

    Probably not 6 years for sure...but 4 years given the larger carrier and given the newer technologies and completely different operating procedures may well be in the cards.

    Time will tell.

    What information have we been given that would lead anyone to believe that it would be take 4-6 years to launch?

    I believe so since the Chinese CVN has still a long way to come.

    In all ways, DL is the reasonable guess.
