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.
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 ?
Also, it appears that there are now 3 smaller cranes operational, instead of only one (the bases of the other 2 were already there).
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.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.
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.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%.
