    I think that twitter member is having a wet dream

    24 x J15 plus 3 x J15D ?

    And 6 x ASW?

    Don’t think so

    All quite possible. The Z-18F, that's been around since 2014 and has equipped the Liaoning for a while.

    I believe what CCTV said.

    CCTV news channel had explicitly stated that domestically-built aircraft carrier ( type 002 in SDF designation ) can house 36 J-15s, and made a reference to Liaoning's capacity of housing 24 J-15s.

    Anything else are pure speculations.

    Seems indeed as if she's preparing for yet another cruise ... reported by @HenriKenhmann/EastPendulum, the Type 002 carrier will eventually leave Dalian for its 8th and final sortie on 28. August to 3. September and most observers expect it soon thereafter to be handed over to the PLAN.

    Quite funny: the normal position for the jet blast deflektors in harbour seams to be the "up"-position. On both ships, Liaoning and 002.
