China is preparing to conduct sea trials of the second aircraft carrier

45
The second Navy aircraft carrier of the People’s Liberation Army of China (PLA) may first go to sea and begin running trials in February of this year, the Global Times newspaper reported.


The first aircraft carrier built in China is likely to begin sea trials closer to the Spring Festival in mid-February of this year.
- quotes the publication of the words of the Chinese military observer Li Jie.

China is preparing to conduct sea trials of the second aircraft carrier


As the analyst noted, previously the only aircraft carrier Liaoning in the PLA Navy ran into the South China Sea and had already passed through the Taiwan Strait. According to Li Jie, “it’s possible that ... the crew of China’s second aircraft carrier is on board the Liaoning to train and transfer experience.”

The second aircraft carrier of the PLA Navy is located at a military shipyard in Dalian (Liaoning Province) and is the first ship of this class, completely built in China. He has not yet received the name, but is known in the Chinese media as "Shandong" or the 001A project. The ship was launched on April 26 2017, must be transferred to the military, according to some estimates, no earlier than in 2020 year. According to Hong Kong media, Beijing intends to put the aircraft carrier into service by the end of 2018.

According to Chinese media reports, the main work on the ship has been completed. 3 December 2017 of the year over the carrier was seen clouds of smoke, which could talk about the launch of the power plant. As Chinese media noted, it was expected that the ship would be put to sea for the first time before the end of 2017, but these predictions did not materialize. In December last year, the Ministry of Defense of China reported that the aircraft carrier is undergoing mooring tests, reports TASS

        Yeah, there’s a tantrum here that parasites don’t get a pension, and in China there are no pensions at all. So, I don’t want to be a Chinese. We will have aircraft carriers, but then, when we raise the money. China, to build 2 aircraft carriers grew by 7-10% per year for 20 years.

          We have other priorities. General - this is nuclear weapons. And in the Navy - submarine. Compare how much China submarines produce and how much we are. And compare the nuclear capabilities of countries. In China, EMNIP, he's funny. And huge amounts of money are needed to maintain and upgrade nuclear capabilities.

    The construction of aircraft carriers suggests that China is preparing for a confrontation at sea, and the sea is the United States and Japan. So for Siberia and the Far East, you can not worry yet.

        Of course you can not worry. Especially if you come up with a sufficiently believable version, for which China is building ice class ships.

        One can argue about this for a very long time. The military doctrine of the Russian Federation is defensive and we are not going to conquer anyone. We don’t need an aircraft carrier right now, where are we going with him? But for 200 green lard you can do a lot: helicopter carriers, Leader, and much more.

      In addition to money, production capabilities, personnel, resources, and sound government policies are important. Money itself is very important, but it is not critical.
      For example, the military budget of Saudi Arabia is also larger than the Russian one. This does not make the possibility of their military-industrial complex comparable with the Russian or even the Chinese one.

      The population of China is 10 times more than the population of Russia. That is the main advantage of China. Working hands allow China to build at least 10 aircraft carriers at once.
      If the Soviet Union survived, there could be a population of 350 million, not 140, as it is now-and 3-4 aircraft carriers in the Navy. Unfortunately, we are ruled by "effective managers" who need only yachts.

    So the Liaoning is an aircraft carrier cruiser, not an aircraft carrier.

    And judging by the phrase "December 3, 2017, puffs of smoke were noticed over the aircraft carrier", it can be said that the power plant of the new ship is steam turbine. And they could do nuclear.

      Aircraft carrier. And Type-001A aircraft carrier.
      In Liaolin, on the site of the mines near Granita, premises were placed.
      At Tip-001А, the hangar level was completely re-planned, due to the redistribution of areas and the lack of a module with mines for Granite, they increased the hangar area, providing, according to one data, + 2 of the aircraft, according to others + 4. But this, again, is not only due to the mines, but due to the global redevelopment of the entire level.

      They do not carry shock weapons. Only protective. In the form of a sea leopard and MZA.

      With Liaoning removed the main caliber, RCC Granite ... and therefore it is a light aircraft carrier, not TARK.

          Heavy aircraft carrier cruiser (TAVKR) Admiral Kuznetsov ... Granit was the main caliber ... Granit launchers were mounted under the flight deck springboard, and when they were launched, flights ceased, as mine hatches opened on the flight deck. But RCC removed from them.
          Kuznetsov is the brother of Liaoning ...

    Nimble guys. Most likely they will accept it for the holiday of Spring 2019 (Chinese NG).
    The next one will go as early as 2021. The only question is what kind of power plant. Most likely with a steam turbine.

      The Chinese have already begun its construction. The estimated displacement of 80000 tons. Nothing is known about the power plant, but they say that the Chinese want to put an electromagnetic catapult, which means they will most likely put a nuclear reactor.
