I'v just realised that the three block on the upper left corner fit into the gap of the modules in the bottom right corner.

We did expect EMALS for this one, but I thought the target tonnage would be a little lower. Maybe this will be closer to Enterprise than Kitty Hawk as far as size is concerned.

, PLAN might only build two Type-002 carriers (CV-18 and the next one). Meaning 4 carriers in total is planned for the foreseeable future. Not 6 or 8 as many claimed.

In summary, faced with economic slowdown, technical challenges in nuclear propulsion for carriers, lack of an effective aircraft to operate on carriers, neighbors all acquiring modern SSKs, and of course US, SK, Japan navy and submarine forces to contend with in Pacific, PLAN is cutting back on ambitions.

Another question is if this will translate to a slowdown in other PLAN projects, Type-055, Type-054B, or maybe reduced numbers in Type-075. Also wonder if Type-095 and 096 subs will face slowdown.

Irregardless of the veracity of the report listed, the plan from the start was for PLAN to build ONLY two Type-002 carriers. In what way could this be considered a slowdown? (let alone use said info to speculate on other PLAN projects that are moving full steam ahead right now?)

Moreover, if the reason for a delayed 003 roll-out is TRL problems for EMALS/nuclear propulsion as reported, in what possible way would or could this affect other programs that are not dependent on them?
