    You are using someone's comment on YouTube to determine the official name of China's 2nd carrier? What's the point?

    First of all, that programme on CCTV-4 is "海峡两岸" which isn't official what so ever in terms of Chinese military hardware naming concern.

    Secondly, the presenter was simply quoting a newspaper in the US calling it Type-001A. Again, what's the point?

    Come on man, clearly you understand Chinese perfectly, and at the same time you really like the idea of calling China's 2nd carrier Type-001A. But, could you stop using these invalid Chinese video clips to confuse people here don't understand Chinese, please? The fact still is that China (PLAN) has never called their 2nd carrier Type-001A, BUT they have several times used "Carrier Number 002" to identify their 2nd carrier. That's the fact, full stop...

    The basin looks to be filled up. To think this entire area used to be farmland.

    That COSCO container ship is huge, has to be a ULVC. Definitely 400 meters long, container ships are not allowed to grow any further. Likely to be a 21,000 TEU, or 210,000+ GT, and a member of the batch or class with COSCO Universe. Using it as a reference, a carrier may only be 3/4ths of it.
