Newport News six month after knee laying of Ford.

There is no activity around the ship in Jingnan.


The installation of a military grade propulsion system on its own will take long time , with debugging.

IT supposed to be first in class, with engineering problems never encountered before.

Especially since the news reports I have seen claim it will have IEPS and EMALS. Not sure if the PLAN decided to go with steam or gas turbines for the Type 003 class CVA's. So as China's first CATOBAR carrier and with several new technologies being introduced, there will be a major learning curve involved.
