Seems as if they are not connected yet.
The construction still seems the same that it was on August 3. Which is not to say that the construction is stopped. The big crane is moving ahead of the ship and then back to it. My guess is that at this stage, they are loading equipment into the modules.

If there is an urgency to greatly scale up naval buildup, lets say China suddenly decides to build three or more carriers simultaneously. Will there be enough skilled workers to meet this target? Let's say China decides to enter a wartime economic state.

IMO, of course it CAN.

Even it's not an easy task for sure, but with their Industrial Capability today of course it can.

Just like US in WW2 wartime economy.
In the beginning of WW2, US only have a few Aircraft Carrier. After they move to wartime economy they pumping Essex class and other warships like sausages.

Maybe not in exact same numbers with Essex class. But three or four? Obviously they can.

The main challenge in something like this has to do with fielding the airwing and training the pilots and ship crew to become an effective unit.
Building empty hulls is a trivial (and strictly secondary) task compared to it. Especially for a country that has an extensive shipbuilding industry.

I think yes. I feel, they are building a very good management system around their work, write down every thought and every step, so it is possible to scale up wotkforce very easy keeping a good quality.

They copied our kind of implementing management systems and now they are better than the first world.

we will start to see this carrier come together very quickly

those modules are built and now all they need to do is get them put together

if we know one thing, that is Chinese shipyards are best at that stage of the work and getting it launched

Very optimistic.

It is a brand new design, without prior assembly experience.

The previous two carrier building was helped by the original drawings, manufacturing instruction modified by assembly / testing experiences, and with the original Ukrainian staff helping out the Chinese builders.

this time the shipyard has to found out all design issues/ mistakes on the go, and during local testing.


Considering that the carrier built like an onion, any issue with the core systems will make it impossible to test the later systems .


Means five, 6 month issue will shift the delivery date by thirty month.
