    Good that the CG artwork is using the Wuhu mockup designs.

    That CGI is amazing work. Amazing, really. The guy spend a lot of time and effort on the detail and should be commended for it. I have two possible nitpicks.

    The Type 364 radar appears on both sides fore and aft of the island of Liaoning and Shandong. The way the Wuhu mock up is done, there is no room for two Type 364 radars like it did on the other two carriers. In my opinion, the Type 364 would be deleted off from 003, and there is no point in introducing a single one on the aft of the island. That space is more likely for a SATCOM. One good indication that the Type 364 might be retired from future PLAN warships is that it has been replaced on the Type 075.

    The Type 364s would also have been made redundant by the X-band radars you see here. These X-band panels are likely the same ones from the Type 055 which has already deleted the Type 364. With the S-band panels below the X-band panels, you have a dual band setup here.

    Below it, you would see two Type 348s or 349s that act as landing radars. These are also on X-band, so I am not sure if these would be retained in 003 due to already having the X-band AESA. These landing radars are present in the Liaoning, Shandong and 075.

    One thing to note is that 003 might use the large ECM panel off from the Type 055. The CGI captures it, and this is consistent with the mock up. The panel is situated on top of the large '18' lettering on the side of island.

    Don’t like the island

    it resembles the CV-16 and CV-17 too much

    should not have the window decks sticking out like that more stealth required

    also mid deck observation post sticking out at the front total no no

    It resembles Wuhan. And the task in Wuhan is to evaluate the island of 003.

    If they're hoping these images could become reality, they might want to start building a few more J-15s. I'm a fair bit concerned about the lack of new J-15s.

    Stealth shaping for a carrier??? I would imagine flight deck operations would nullify any advantages. It really should be about reducing drag for fuel efficiency and minimizing turbulence for incoming aircrafts. I'm not expecting any drastic changes to the island until they roll out a nuclear-powered one.

    Incoming sea skimming missile will see the top of the island only from bigger distance.


    As an enemy aircraft from longer distances.

    At that sort of "longer distances", does it matter if "the window decks are sticking out" or not?
