    Third PLA carrier could be China’s Kitty Hawk
    Or it may have just 1-2 steam catapults & a bow rump. Later, they could remove it & install EM catapult(s) for trials.

    Fuel constraints will limit PLA’s 2nd carrier
    Vessel can only last six days at sea without resupply but a new base is being built on Fiery Cross Reef

    China started testing a radar for her own E-2 counterpart a few years ago, & now is getting ready the plane itself:

    It'll have COD & ASW variant as well:
