Chinese "nameless" Type 001A prepares for sea trials

The first Chinese domestic-made aircraft carrier is preparing for sea trials. At the Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Company (DSIC) shipyard, the preparatory work for the ship’s first exit at sea is being completed, Warspot reports with reference to the portal navyrecognition.com


Chinese "nameless" Type 001A prepares for sea trials


The aircraft carrier has not yet received the official name and is known as Type 001A. According to unofficial information, access to the sea can be scheduled for April 23 - the official day of the PLA Navy.

In an interview with CCTV, DSIC head Liu Zheng said that all ship systems are fully operational and are undergoing debugging. In addition, the main power plant is already working on the Type 001A. Considering that the tests of an aircraft carrier take 6 – 12 months, by the end of this year the PLA Navy can take on board the ship.

The launch of the Chinese aircraft carrier took place on 26 last April. The ship was laid in November 2013, but the Chinese Ministry of Defense officially confirmed the construction of a new aircraft carrier only in January, 2016.

Despite the fact that in China the new aircraft carrier is called a fully national development, in its size and shape it corresponds to the Soviet aircraft carrying cruisers. It is known that in 90, the Chinese bought from the Nevsky Design Bureau a set of project documentation for the aircraft-carrying cruisers of the modernized 1143.6 “Krechet” project.

                      And the car is not a fairy tale ... like a missile cruiser - why an air wing?
                      As an aircraft carrier, it’s poor .. one can say it’s simply insignificant ..
                      In the aggregate - a compromise. - which did not make it better.
                      "Ulyanovsk" started, in due time, not by chance!
                      They wanted to get away from the compromises of past years ..

                I absolutely agree with you. The price of the gyrfalcon is two submarines of the Antey class.
                Its content is comparable with the content of half of the surface Northern Fleet.
                Throwing this "suitcase" does not allow just moral reasons.
                If they start to cut it, it will be the strongest moral blow to our fleet and, in particular, naval aviation.

              In fact, the company in Syria showed the opposite.

              It’s not even a matter of drowning.

              The point is the intensity. Efficiency. Combat load. A pair of Su-24 / 34 at the base did as much as Kuzya did.

              AVs of this type have no future. Even in China they abandoned them. The new Type-002 aircraft carrier has already begun to be built and it will be Kitty Hawk with 4 catapults, optimization for the maximum air group and high intensity of flight work.

                And “Kuzi” from birth, had slightly different tasks. Work on the shore, this is secondary, and most importantly, cover your ship's group.

                However, everything in the world is built by such aircraft carriers as the Krechets and not like the United States.
                The British have an example of "Elizabeth", though a bit less without aerofinisher and with a dubious prospect for an air group, well, without missile strike weapons.
                And the Hindus, having gained experience with the Vikramaditya and the old Vikrant, began to build a series of lightweight aircraft carriers with a springboard.
                True, the French tried to build an aircraft carrier. Like the United States with catapults.
                Yes, there was not enough money for the “cap” - only the “cap” came out, but at the price of the aircraft carrier Nimitz)))
                And what kind of "intensity" are you talking about?
                Do you know this "intensity"?
                Yes. ..and about the combat load in more detail?
                I think you have no idea about its size.

          Two questions ... first, why do we need to build an aircraft carrier cruiser if we need a full-fledged aircraft carrier. And the second question, do we have new escort ships for the aircraft carrier?
          PS. And the third question is, where can I get a shipyard of this size, so that it’s not just that a carrier of 300 meters to push there, but at least a ship comparable in size to the same Krechet project?

            Explain what "full" means
            Take a look at the latest Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier
            All aircraft carriers for your information belong to the class of cruisers.
            This is eloquently indicated by the letter in their designation "CV" - "cruiser Woller" -cruiser with airplanes.

          Is it necessary? With the current collapse of rocket technology at supersonic speeds of delivery vehicles, such large targets are a great treat. Although China needs this to show the star-striped who in the Chinese seas the main flag.

        Well, they are building a new Zheng He fleet. I repeat, a photo from Dalniy.

        In the foreground 11 destroyer 052D Chengdu (the lead destroyer of this Kunming project was surrendered in the 2014 year).
        Armament 64 universal mine for heavy missiles - HHQ9B (C-300) / YJ-18 (Caliber).
        In the background are the 3 and 4 hulls of the destroyers of the 055 project (in the photo there are already 6 ships, the lead one is being completed afloat, the serial is being prepared for launch, two hulls at Dalniy and another new one are laid at the end of 2017).
        Armament 112 universal mines for heavy missiles.


        On the other hand, they have the military budget number 2 in the world. They can afford it.

        There is no need to copy here - the documentation is on hand.
