    Adding on to these rumors:
    • 003 will have displacement 78,000 tons (likely standard displacement) with EM cats and conventional propulsion.
    • 004 will begin construction at Dalian in the coming years, nuclear with EM cats, and the design has largely been finalized.
    • 5th generation naval fighter is well under development and apparently is already undergoing testing.
    If 003 indeed displaces 78,000 tons standard with a 41-metre waterline width, we can assume as much as 85,000 tons full displacement.

    Let's wait for more news.

    If "00X" refer to individual carriers, that would mean only one conventional CATOBAR will be constructed.... unless 003 and 004 are class designations.

    We do not know, whether 004 is a sistership of 003 or a ship of its own class.

    At the moment China has two classes of aircraft carriers:
    • STOBAR similar to Kuznetsov with 2 individual hulls (001, 002)
    • new conventional CATOBAR design with 1 individual hull (003)

    I don't think anyone claimed that rumours were facts; what was discussed was the nature of long term rumours and their relationship with their associated projects.

    Yes, assuming he did say all of that, I would say that it's all remarkably consistent with what we've been hearing about we expected for the future trajectory of China's carrier development.

    A small part of me wonders if he might have been merely repeating some open source rumours that we've had for a while, but that would seem remarkably irresponsible for someone of his status and doing so at such a public location, not to mention I couldn't exactly see the rationale for doing so either.
    The reason I raise this possibility is because apparently during the presentation some slides were used that were fan made CGIs -- however I'm not sure if during the presentation it was specified as only being for illustrative purposes or not, so I'm not sure if whether use of those slides would have affected the perceived credibility of his actual verbal presentation or not.

    (Middle left part of the image; seems to be one of the fan made pictures from a few years ago speculating aboutf PLAN LPD, LHD)

    Did these rumors come from the same presentation? Or written by a secondary source?

    Sorry I'm lost on this one: what is it supposed to show here?

    That should be one side of a module of the 003 that we are looking down in an axial manner.
    Over top we see the movable roof cover.
