What is the 'standard' composition of the Shandong air group? Am I right in thinking:

24 x J15
3 x J15D
6 x Z18 ASW
4 x Z18 AEW
2 x Z18 transport/COD
2 x Z9 SAR

36 air craft. Comprised of 24 j15 planes and 12 helicopters. That much has been basically made official, spoken by PLAN personnel.

Helicopter detachment may look a bit like this:
3 aew helicopters.
2 SAR helicopters.
2 utility helicopters.
5 asw helicopters.

Thanks. Is that the same as Laoining?

I would expect 24 x J15 + 12 x Helicopters

for 003 I would expect 36 x J15 or even 36 x J15 + 12 x J35 + 12 x Helicopters so 48-60 aircraft total

which would mean CV16 + Cv17 total 48 x J15 + 36 x J15 from 003 gives 84 x J15

or close to 100 x fixed wing aircraft over a target far from home shores

and if we add in the 3 x Type 075 LHD we can call it close to 100 x helicopters

so China has the ability to deploy 100 x fighters + 100 x helicopters

good numbers

I don't think the British ships' schedule will be affected by a Chinese aircraft carrier's mission. The ships can operate in the same area, we are not at war.

There are more at stake than whether they are at war. Britain is clearly trying to tread a very fine line. She let it be know her carriers were in SCS, but carefully refrained from publishing any photos proving the fact. She definitely want it to exhibit the necessary signs that would satisfy the US that the UK would be right there fighting with the US in case the situation turns hot, yet she clearly want to avoid exhibiting too much of the kind of signs that would signal to the chinese that the UK would go all in with the US irrespective of her relations with China.
Tiny Britain did not rise to become dominant over 1/4 of the earth for almost 100 years without first becoming very skilled at calculating her exact interest to a fine nicety and playing both sides of any game with absolute mastery,
