    These are top secret developments, which are not allowed to be seen by spies.

    They are obviously stealth, so you can see them :p

    Do you really think PLAN is that stupid?

    Are we saying that China cannot suffer from technical issues relating to these developments?

    Why are you two missing the point

    As you can see, this is somehow systematically happening to a lot of China’s high profile projects. You don’t see heads rolling? We all know that China would not allow such catastrophic mishaps happening continuously like this. Officials in charge would’ve been purged long before this.

    I honestly don’t know why they are doing things this way. And I agree with you that merely having some key components won’t make it battle ready. Heck, even if they have all the components ready today with both of their carriers and CBGs and complete flight wings, they won’t be ready for battle for many years to come. I agree with you.

    However, you cannot blame them for being careless and mismanaging things. These are very difficult projects. Without any outside help, they can only depend on themselves. They might’ve thought long and hard and evaluated all the possibilities and came up with their own plans. These plans may look very different from how others do things because the Chinese have their own concerns and unique conditions.

    As a matter of fact, if they do things exactly as others have before them, we might need to accuse them of blindly following others. That’s actually the easy way. You don’t need to think long and hard at all. Just follow others’ examples. Others have done it before. Why not just follow them, which has been shown to be successful? I believe that’s how everyone thinks at first. This is indeed how you are judging them, right? Others have done it this way... How stupid are the Chinese since they are not doing the right way!

    Yet, they are doing it differently. They may be doing it wrong. Very much could be. I’m in no way saying that the Chinese must be 100% correct on everything. However, the fact that they are doing it differently strongly suggests that they have absolutely thought long and hard. Blindly following others is always easy. Plowing a new path is always harder. The new path might be a wrong path, but again, you cannot blame them for slacking off and being careless.

    Very interesting new images of the Type 003 carrier currently under construction at the Jiangnan Shipyard, Shanghai. For the first time a module - or super block - was moved near the new basin, eventually to be transported to the dry dock. ... even there is surely still a lot of work to be done before it can be carried away to the dry dock.

    Thanks to @10969YUKIKAZE !

    Everybody knows. It is not a secret, PLAN has made it "public" in their launching event.
    1. CV-16 is called 001 by PLAN.
    2. "Type 001A" is called 002 by PLAN at the launching event.
    3. This forum is apparently wrong in calling the current constructing CV "Type 002".
    4. What would this CV being constructed be if not 003, since number 002 has already been taken?
