    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.

    No...
    The type 003 wont start trails before 2022, and they wont start building any CVNs before they know all the system on the 003 works. At best the first 004 can be ready by 2025.

    And where do you get your sources from? The highest official number of carriers I seen  China mention is 6 carriers. And there are even some doubt about that.

    Comparing the Type 003 with the lastest US carrier under constuction, the John F Kennedy.

    Moving all the moduls of the 003 together the two carries seems to be about the same size.

    001 equips North Fleet. 002 equips South Fleet. 003 will go to East Fleet. Chinese policy is each fleet has at least 1 carrier.

    The third aircraft carrier for the PLA Navy under construction at the Hudong-Zhonghua Shipyard of the Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group (part of the Shanghai Shipbuilding Company of the Chinese state shipbuilding corporation China Shipbuilding State Corporation - CSSC) in Shanghai. March 10, 2021. Its displacement will be 80,000 tons, and the power plant will be non-nuclear. At the same time, the new ship will be equipped with an electromagnetic catapult, which will significantly expand the possibilities of using carrier-based aircraft.

    The fourth (Type-004) PLAN carrier probably getting nuclear-power.
    https://www.scmp.com/news/china/diplomacy/article/3125224/chinese-military-fourth-aircraft-carrier-likely-be-nuclear

    The CSSC said in February 2018 it had started developing a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, which would help the PLA Navy to “realise its strategic transformation and combat-readiness capability in deep waters and open oceans by 2025

    A bit overhyped. Type 003 is conventionally powered. Sure, it has EMALs. To say it is Chinese counterpart of Ford it is not. That would be Type 004.

    J-15 serial number 72 on TV. Means now there are enough J-15 to fully equip 3 carriers. And Type 003 isn't even launched yet.

    Yeah. They originally said that the 003 was going to be nuclear. It will probably have the same power plant as the Shangdong. It was probably the righ decision. If they were dealing with their first nuclear and their first emal , it would probably be like the Ford. Loaded with problems

    Shandong CV-17. The large AESA panels shared with Type 052D and Type 055 can clearly be seen on the island.
