    I know this issue but if my memory serves me correctly, then wasn't there last year an announcement that the PLAN's Marine Corps would establish its own aviation brigades?

    This surely will take time, but given the production rate, the Army Aviation received Z-18s and Z-20s I think it should be no problem at all.

    And it is also more than likely that maybe one or two aviation brigades will transferred to PLAN-MC like it was done before with 2 mechanized brigades. In any case, such formations will have to undergo lengthy training period and exercises to be able to operate in amphibious warfare.

    Chinas first true flat deck warship

    technically the two carriers are ski jump until 003 comes online

    and there was a time when many critics believed China cannot build a flat top

    That sponson on the port side forward is clearly only about 2 decks high. However, the top side of the sponson is set only minimally below the level of the flight deck, meaning whatever you put on the top side of the sponson (like an Type 1130) will possibly stick up obtrusively past the floor of the flight deck, possibly interfering with flight ops such as by risking contact with rotating helo bladdes, UNLESS whatever equipment gets loaded onto the sponson, is flush or nearly flush with the level of the flight deck....

    The other possibility that I just thought of is that the sponson actually has a solid rail already installed around the top side of the sponson, and the sponson is actually even less than 2 decks thick.

    That's what I thought the label said, probably speculated by the person who created the labels, but I don't think those slots are for L-band radars, but for IFF.

    He means IFF in L-band.

    Oh I see. My Chinese reading is not good. That sounds similar to Mark VII IFF with 1030Mhz send-interrogate 1090Mhz reply.

    The straight lines on the design of the Type 075 remind me of Izumo class

    Very modern looking

    Not like the silly looking mistral class which looks like a floating cardboard box

    Also not like the Canberra class either

    Overall a nice design and glad they have done a good job
