Progress on the newest aircraft carrier is going well it seems. The Chinese are stating outfitting and the debugging of the equipment is going well. They are confident enough to announce the start of mooring trials soon.

And in a plot twist, the Ukrainians might not have given North Korea the rocket motor tech, but they sure seem to be helping the Chinese with their carriers.

I don't see why everyone is laughing at them, they're making rapid progress and well above Russia IMO.

It's a completely new build that they built from the ground up.

Sure they are getting ahead of Russia...................... 10 x the population and economic output based on slavery. Plus they stole Russia's and other countries designs to make their Great Leap Forward into the modern world.

I think the the carrier after shandong will come faster than come after than the conventional wisdom and probably won't have cats yet. The one after that probably will go for the emals style cats. Just IMO.

No matter what anyone thinks china has some kick ass ship builders.Ive worked with some Chinese welders who did their time stick welding cargo ships together.They exceeded international welding standards with their work..Put them outside their comfort zone though and they struggled though.
