    So effectively they probably plan to use them together... one as a helicopter carrying landing vessel with landing ships and armour, and the other with more helicopters and fighters.

    That is a serious gamble in terms of VSTOL fighters...

    The fire doesnt seem to have hurt the ships inside that bad looking at these pictures.

    They look fine but all we can see are likely areas that have been washed and repainted... it is impossible to tell what damage was done from a photo like that, but thanks for posting... they do look good.

    Meh... so what... a bit of smoke... who cares...

    What I found most interesting was how weathered the deck looks... if they are going to use VSTOL fighters on there then they need to work on some surface that can take high temperature airflows for a few seconds...

    The other thing I found strange is the front edge of the flight deck... I remember with the Kiev class they made all sorts of changes to the shapes and barriers to optimise the airflow over the deck, and to prevent areas of turbulence.

    I would think a flat deck carrying helicopters it would be more important because helicopters are not like normal aircraft... when you hover it is easier to hover with your nose pointed into the prevailing wind... if the direction shifts then you need to turn your nose... which is fine on the Kiev normally, but on a different type with helicopters that are not coaxial Helix based designs that have tail rotors swinging the tail around on a deck is exceptionally dangerous...

    Jesus christ dude, if this was a russian vessel u would be giving it high prays.
    The vessel it out on its first trail, that was the whole point.

    But im sure even when they get the type 003 carrier out you Will be complaining about something russia

    If it was a Russian ship you and others would be bitching about its smoking habit and I would be saying it does not matter... but I would be wondering why the deck seems to have no consistent coating at the very least of paint but more obviously the heat resistant material they use on aircraft carrier decks for situations where jet engines direct their thrust directly at the deck during rotation for takeoff and also during a failed attempt to catch a cable...

    The squared off front looks like one of those model planes you get that is made of blocks of balsa wood that you are supposed to spend days sanding down to a curvy more aerodynamic shape... like they haven't read the instructions properly and just assembled it as is...

    The bow could be reinforced for breaking up waves, prevent too much spray, & the  future skirump; the flight deck coating would be applied later, before any flight trials.
