several opinions about the 003 without engine test stand according to my knowledge: 1.003 is designed to defend and will be send to near mainland. that means it can go back to base to reload or repair the engine. 2.003 can carry several engine for the unexpected situation and do not need to repair and test them on the carrier.

No.

Kittyhawk, Invincible, Clemenceau and Kiev class aircraft carriers were never limited to near-shore operations. So is Type 003.

With enough auxiliary logistic ships, a conventional steam powered aircraft carrier could be sent to and operated anywhere around the world.

China doesn't have a C-2 Greyhound equivalent.

PLAN needs both carrier-borne EAW&C and ASu planes, maybe they will develop a new turboprop plane for a platform.
