    The barracks ship may have accompanied 002.

    That 052D is one of the new block or flight but minus the extended deck and the new VHF radar. It maybe set to undergo its own sea trials soon.

    China's second #aircraftcarrier can carry at least 36 domestically developed J-15 fighter jets, some 50 percent more than the country's first, which experts say would further expand combat capability, China Central Television reports

    Ah, I understand, this is the reason, why there are so many new J-15 :)
