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.
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
Third carrier was always supose to be a convential carrier. The confusion was with the project numbers of the first two. Originally they were called Type-001 and Type-001A, making the fourth carrier the Type-003. Then suddenly the 001A became Type-002, making the Type-004 the first nuclear carrier.
