A new Chinese aircraft carrier will be launched in the coming days.

33
The second aircraft carrier of the PLA Navy, fully designed and built by Chinese shipbuilders, will be launched for the first time at sea and will begin sea trials this week, reports TASS Post by China Morning Post.




According to a newspaper source, "the event will be timed to the 69 anniversary of the creation of the PLA Navy, which is celebrated on Monday," but "the exact date will be determined taking into account the current hydrological conditions and the height of the tide."

At the same time, the publication notes that “the Maritime Safety Authority of the northeastern province of Liaoning has already issued a notice of a temporary closure for navigation of three sections in the Bohai Gulf from 20 to 28 in April”. These zones are located near the shipyard where the ship was built.

The interlocutor added that last Tuesday a test launch of the aircraft carrier engine took place, which also testifies to the approaching trials.

He also said that at the time of going to sea, among other things, the strength of the hull would be tested, for the construction of which new special steel was used.

The carrier, with a displacement of 70 thousand tons, has not yet received the name and is known as "type 001A".

Recall that last year, the Chinese shipbuilders began building a third aircraft carrier, which will be equipped with modern electromagnetic system catapults to disperse aircraft during takeoff.

        It seems that they will hand it over earlier than Kuzya from repair ... heh, heh ... yes

      What are your double standards. Kuznetsov got into repair to restore technical readiness with a little modernization work - this is news, and the launch of the same aircraft carrier built from scratch is not news? request
      China's ultra-fast construction of a powerful ocean fleet is a good example of what happens when the power in the country belongs to the real patriots of their country, and not to thieves and miserable window dressers, like some winked

              You are confusing concepts. I can be declared an enemy of the current oligarchic system of power, but not an enemy of the people. These are completely different concepts!

      Not very happy about this news. There are no alliances between superpowers, so, common interests, for the time being ... On the other hand, the Chinese fleet is less dangerous to us than the army and the Air Force, which means we still have time ...

    I'm afraid to think that they will roll out by a round date in a year))). Happy holiday, by the way! In our history, anything happened, but you took a lot from the valiant Red Army, and our military advisers knew many words in Chinese, Korea again ...

      Nothing special. As a maximum, Type-081 is their version of USPP in 30k. tons And perhaps the frigate 054B - but there is no clarity on it.

      Well, this is in addition to a bunch of new 052D destroyers and the first pair of 055 heavy destroyers.

      By the way, they have already skated the parade.

        I was interested a little, because. from the text I understood only the word "Hainan" repeat , it turns out that this topic was covered in the Russian news. And I don't watch TV, but it was also curious to see.

    Next to the PLA is Kitty Hawk (Type-002).

      Look at their cities. Any more or less millionaire is built up with skyscrapers and interchanges so that New York will be given a head start. Infrastructure is developing at an astranomic pace. We are up to them as to the moon.

        In ten years they launched as many metro lines as in the entire USSR and then the Russian Federation did not. Under Yeltsin (be he not okay), the metro was built all over Russia, under Putin they only bury it. Excluding non-rubber of course

      Probably because we have long counted and divided the fat-profitable or not profitable for yourself to do it

      2) estimated timeframes, do we have?))
      3) love rhinestones and chrome?))
      We, like the BARZh, have a pair for each fleet: Northern Fleet and Pacific Fleet ..
      It's a shame, right, that our shipbuilding is in decline

    According to plans 001А will be commissioned in 2020. It seems that the "Kuznetsov" should be out of repair in 2020. But taking into account the fact that we have a lot shifting to the right, then how would ours not come out of repair simultaneously with the commissioning of the aircraft carrier 002

    Questions for backfill:
    1) terms of construction, this BARGE?))
    2) estimated timeframes, do we have?))


    1) Laid down in November 2015, launched in April 2017, estimated time of commissioning is 2020.
    The next aircraft carrier was laid down in February 2016, the launch time has not yet been determined. Commissioning expected in 2023

    2) Kuznetsov was laid down in September 1982, launched in December 1987, commissioned in 1991.
    How will it be with the subsequent - no one knows
