CV-18 Fujian/003 CATOBAR carrier thread


My thoughts as well brutha ... And as far as this image is concern, if it is indeed a mockup of a future vessel as oppose to a children's playground, casino, baseball field or some other nonsense, then I'm thinking it's an actual future CV unlike liaoning or her sister ship currently being built.

We've always speculated that the Liaoning 'class' will consists of either 2 or 3 ship... I'm thinking it's just two now. With the advancement made in naval technologies and PLAN's ambition not to mention seemingly unlimited budget it would be foolish for PLAN to built a 3rd carrier based on a 30 something yr old pre Soviet carrier design when they have all the tools and resources to build a 80k flat deck carrier with all the bells and whistles.

My humble opinion of course!
Lol looking back at my post from 7 yrs ago. Those were fun times at SDF. Also pains me that Jeff is no longer here with us.


A flyover update. No visible changes that I can spot.
