Rumoured Type 076 LHD/LHA discussion

One of the other requirement for 076 that stood out to me was environment support system capable of operating under "tropical" or "dust storm" conditions.

This requirement to me suggests that 076 is not designed solely with Taiwan in mind, but power projecting further out into the Indian Ocean and perhaps even Middle East.

Perhaps 076 is in fact a "post-Taiwan" LHA design.

Or maybe off the coast of some very sandy and dusty islands, like maybe in the SCS.

Is it going to be nuclear if power projection is intended?

Has there been any example of a straight deck modern arrest-hook aircraft carrier?

I found this video that summarizes what we know about the 076 thus far and frames it in perspective of why introduce a new LHD when the 075 is still in sea trial; why include nuclear and biochemical protection; why use EMAL; why China does not develop VTOL capabilities; how will UAV be used in tandem with other Chinese systems in landing combat.

Most importantly English translation of this video is very good. So enjoy.

Overall I found the video very informative. I think this vlogger greatly underestimates F35 capabilities and seems to distrust the American Government's intentions for the world. But that's another topic for another day.

Has there been any examples of a Catobar aircraft landing on a straight deck carrier?
