If the Chinese wanted to build more ships of the same type right away, wouldn't we already be able to see modules for a next ship on the building site?

For me at the moment it looks more like operational experience should be gained before the construction of the next aircraft carrier begins.

It was not uncommon for PLAN to run two prototypes. This allows planning errors to be distinguished from manufacturing errors.

004 is almost certainly a ship similar to 003. Though whether 005 would be nuclear is still uncertain.
