    Looks like they painted the hull. Landing deck is still missing.

    Really ? What a beast.

    Its good to see someone facing down the US with a new blue water navy. I was a bit miffed to learn that the Type 003 is not going to be nuclear powered. Why... why why.

    They wont be at the same level as the US until they have a nuclear powered carrier. That will be the next one after 003 I guess

    The type 003 was always supose to be a convential powerd ship. Type 004 is rumored to be Chinas first nuclear powerd cvn.

    As for its size its still a bit scatzy. Latest pictures show a waterline lengh of 304-307 meters. Best guess about ~320 meters when its finished.

    So basically 6 carriers for the East fleet and 6 carriers for the South fleet. A total of 12 carriers by the 2030s, not including LHD.
