This is more like what I'm expecting, although I doubt they'll add 2 catapults considering it's main job is still being a LHD. US LHD/LHA carries only 6 F35B during normal operation. But nice CGI anyway.

The rendition showing J-15s is amusing but also a bit much lol
Operating a manner aircraft and one the size of J-15 via a CATOBAR fashion on an LHD seems unrealistic

True. And he made it looks like the 076 is quite a bit longer than Izumo, which is already 248 meters long. I mean... Charles de Gaulle is only 261 meters long...

Yankee retweet this and says 火车长(席亚洲) leaked this quite a while back (the doge emoji means he's not serious):1.png

The text: if the future 40K ton LHD have EM catapult and arresting gear, then it can launch "Sharpsword" UAV. If we talks about ground striking capability alone, it won't be much worse than F35B.
