what do you think about the size, were you a bit disappointed?
The apparent disappointment isn't as much about actual size of the ship but about its comparison with the wasp.For about half a year now, fzgfzy has been saying that the 075 would displace 31,500 tons full, so I think the expectations of 075's size was already shaped around such a ship.
Looking at the ship here, and going by some new recent comments by pop3, it seems like the displacement is being adjusted a bit higher to 36,000 tons full.
Given my expectations were for a 31,500 ton ship, if the ship is 36,000 tons (which seems consistent with the overall size of the ship now that we have pictures of it in the water), that would actually be a pleasant surprise.
The apparent disappointment isn't as much about actual size of the ship but about its comparison with the wasp.
It obviously doesn't measure upto the Wasp's dimensions but that's ok as long as its own operational objectives are met.
Also the largest aircraft operated from 075 and Wasp will differ a lot in size, i think the ratio of their sizes is reflected in the ships that'll house them.
