CNS Fujian, China's recently unveiled aircraft carrier, represents the country's latest achievement in its naval hardware construction and incorporates a wide variety of advanced technologies.
Among those taking part in the massive engineering endeavor, researchers at the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology, who are renowned specialists in carrier rockets, have used their expertise and skills to help build one of the critical parts on the colossal carrier-the jet blast deflectors.
A jet blast deflector, or blast fence, is an indispensable component on a carrier's flight deck because it is used to block and deflect extremely hot exhaust from fighter jet engines to prevent damage and injury.
Engineers from the academy's Aerospace Research Institute of Materials and Processing Technology developed heat-resistant paint used on the jet blast deflectors on the CNS Liaoning and CNS Shandong, the Fujian's two predecessors.
When design work for the new carrier began at China State Shipbuilding Corp, the institute was once again invited to participate.
Ma Kangzhi, project manager for the paint coat project at the institute, said it was an honor for his team that they could use their expertise in rockets and spacecraft to serve the country's naval modernization drive.
He said the paint coat on the jet blast deflectors must be able to withstand scorching flame and long periods of time in a marine environment.
"Our product features good heat-proofing and anticorrosive performance, can be mass-produced and is easy to maintain and repair," he said, adding that engineers will continue improving the paint formula.
The Beijing-based institute specializes in advanced materials and their processing techniques. Its technologies and products are widely used on China's crewed spaceships, carrier rockets and satellites.
China's third aircraft carrier, the Fujian was unveiled on June 17 in Shanghai as it was towed out of its dry dock at China State Shipbuilding Corp's Jiangnan Shipyard.
Upon its completion, the gigantic ship will displace more than 80,000 metric tons of water, making it the largest and mightiest warship any Asian nation has ever built, and also one of the world's biggest naval vessels.
In the next phase, the carrier will undergo mooring and sea trials to comprehensively test its overall capabilities and specific equipment, the Chinese military said.

Japan is feeling the heat from the launch of Fujian good for them about time they give respect to China

With the launch of its new aircraft carrier, the Fujian, the Chinese navy now has three. The vessel is the first in the fleet to be equipped with an electromagnetic catapult and can send off shipboard aircraft in rapid succession.

China continues to expand its military arsenal, and its technology is approaching that of the state-of-the-art carrier systems used by the U.S. Navy. Asian neighbors should be extremely wary of this development.

The Fujian is named for the southeastern coastal province that lies across from Taiwan. Earlier in his career, President Xi Jinping spent many years in the province, and was not shy in expressing his strong desire to reunify Taiwan with the mainland. With Russia roiling the global security environment through its invasion of Ukraine, other countries are watching China closely.

Neighboring Japan must take every opportunity to encourage Beijing to exercise restraint while developing its own defense capabilities. These endeavors are underscored by the Japan-U.S. alliance, the Quad grouping of the U.S., Japan, India and Australia, and the trilateral partnership between the U.S., Japan and South Korea. The current situation demands the creation of a multilayered security framework.

I have nothing against quoting twitter accounts, but if something is completely unsubstantiated from a source that is not known, claiming something that significantly raises eyebrows, perhaps it is more constructive to not post it here...
This account is quoting Jin Can Rong 金灿荣,as a person of his position it is most likely true

Off topic posts deleted.

Speculating about a Japanese CV is not related to the thread, and if someone happens to bring it up in passing, please also have the self discipline to not continue it given how low yield the topic would be.
