    What do you think?

    Probably another new - and IMO much larger - module of the Type 003 carrier currently under construction at the Jiangnan Shipyard.

    At least it is the same location where the other module was seen before.

    Is there any information about the propulsion system for this ship? i.e. will it use steam boilers, gas turbines and diesel engines, or those with IEP?

    We had the news about that 20 MW electric turbine generator last week (?).
    The QE-class uses 20 MW electric units as well. It also uses MT30 gas turbines with a similar performance to the QC-280.
    The only thing missing from that equation are the 11.6 MW diesels the QE-class uses and the electric propulsion system.
    But those are likely already in development for future Chinese cruisers as well. So, will we see IEP on the Type 002?
    I think it makes some sense given that they will need a large electrical generation capacity for EMALS if that is used as rumored.

    It is possible. But we don't know.

    It seems larger because it is in a different orientation.
