    With over 1,000,000 hits, the older thread has reached a point to be replaced by this new thread...number II.

    The old thread:

    https://www.sinodefenceforum.com/plan-aircraft-carrier-programme-news-views.t6479/

    Will remain to view and browse. But it will no longer accept new posts.

    Any new PLAN Carrier news, photos, videos, views etc. shold be posted here.

    Here are some of the latest posts of the PLAN carrier program, Liaoning and 001A to get us started:

    They may have...but by that date...and with the Soviet Union having gone completely bankrupt and with all the upheaval, it is easy to contemplate that they did not get a full set.

    I am willing to bet dollars to doughnuts that the Chinese have created an entire set of their own new blue prints/master drawings for every aspect of 001A's build.

    Chinese naval ingeneers have had a lot of time to study the ex-varjag and made there own blueprints, may be based by tons of paper, which was part of the deal.
    After collapsing of SU, nobody had interest to safe this original blueprints - they sold everything to everybody ...

    They have certainly made no blueprints, but CAD files.

    There is no doubt that they are most probably CAD/CAE/CAM files which are driving the build of the 001A.

    Their master files for the 001A is what we would have called blue prints in an earlier day...but those master files, in whatever from they have taken, are no doubt what has been created by and used by the Chinese to build this ship.

    One still has to print it out in paper (in large sheets) to be able to bring it out onto the job site anyway for easier reading and measuring as the construction progresses.

    Exactly! They will have print outs of many, many CAD drawings, talking about them, arguing about them, discussing them, right there within the ship as it is built.
