    Ok so in summary

    Large modules to be built around other shipyards and floated into dry dock and small modules lifted into place by gantry crane at JNCX

    Basically QE class style construction

    Is this the rumour from big shrimp translation ?

    Wasn't the crane BAE used to assemble the QE carriers built in China?

    What I find quite interesting about that graphic, is two things:

    1: we haven't seen it before. That is to say, I wonder if it is a graphic that they had developed themselves in an in house way, or if it is merely a graphic that we have yet to see.
    2: the details of the island are very consistent with the wuhan mock up's latest modifications, namely the integrated mast, the geometry of the island for the radar arrays, and the deckhouse for the island itself.

    It makes me wonder if the graphic might possibly be a somewhat accurate in house representation of what they expect 00X to look like, in which case this might possibly be one of the first true depictions of 00X that we can see.
