We don't know what happens now in that shipyard, what problems they face / expect,and what capabilities/ weak points the design/manufacturing team have.

That "wall" in the middle of the module pretty much prevents inserting the "box" inside it.

Jiangnan flyover.

Comparing to the last photos, it seems to me that the pieces of hull being built behind the second module have alongated it, approaching those two connected hangars in the back. If the two big pieces have been connected, is still up in the air, i think. Also, it appears that there are now 3 smaller cranes operational, instead of only one (the bases of the other 2 were already there).

There is more module, and the bottom one has separation wall.

And what else can be the purpose of those modules at the up left corner of the area ?

Actually, if you check this photo, you will see that this wall goes beyond the bottom one. I dont think that that box could be inserted there.

To build the ship.

To build the ship.
can be, but in that case the ships is not a carrier, or the building is in an earliest stage, because they need to fill up the huge holes under the water level. The building is slow anyway, if there is less parallelism in it then its going with the speed of snail.


The under the waterline section of the ship should be full with machines/ metal / supplies, not with air, otherwise the centre of gravity will be too high, and the centre of buoyancy (or whatever is the name of it in shipbuilding language ) will be too low.

64*27 meter big hole in the middle of the ship.

We have no firm information about the geometry under the roof, but from the three module visible two has huge emptiness in the place of the internal structures, and the third looks like a box dropped into the hole.

this is nothing more than wishfull thinking from China haters, the Chinese economy is suffering from no crisis at all, this is the new norm & it's growing at 6% or more just as the government planned even before the trade war, furthermore China only spends 1.3% on military so they have alot of room to maneuvre, the US calls it's allies who spend less than 2% as free riders, the US considers countries that spend less than 2% to be severly careless about defense, so by NATO standards if China was a member of then China would have been considered as being a free rider.

it is safe to say China will get at the very least 6 CVNs, and after few decades they can easily achieve parity with the US carrier force tonnage wise & numbers wise while still keeping their mitary spending below 2%.
The actual amount spend by China and US can be quite misleading. Many westerners claimed that China spending is much larger because they said many defense related programs are not listed under defense. Just like the US, monies spend on nuclear defense are listed under power/energy.
