    The pace is certainly enviable! We would be so! But the quality will need to look)

      In quality - well, 054A they run around the world, without tugboats. They regularly reach Peru / Chile / London / Spain.

        They compensate for the small resource of engine parts and other spare parts by their cheapness and ultra-fast replacement and repair times. And what to do, you have to get out like that request Anything is better than our "running on the spot", as Vysotsky sings wink

          Quality cannot be achieved without practice. So the Chinese are great.
          Please note - aircraft carrier with a springboard. That is, the Chinese prefer the Russian version as an example. The springboard is more reliable than a catapult (it does not break smile )

        I do not believe that we do not have enough money ... if it were not for the oligarchs .... After all, how is there no money? The same country pays for the construction itself, doesn’t buy the same? ... But it turns out that it buys from the oligarchs ..... request

      The gyrfalcon is finished.

      A new aircraft carrier is already being built - Type-002. He will have a similar Type-001A power plant. Perhaps a number of units and assemblies are identical. But the hull itself is different, the concept itself is different - there is no springboard, 4 catapults and 60 group aircraft. This will be their kitty hawk.

        Yes, I know, colleague, I know. I repeat: well done, the Chinese. not grabbing the stars from the snob, they gradually reached the clean, own aircraft carrier. completion of the first, construction of the second project of the first_ heating up the appetite and honing those. decisions. third_ here they’ve removed the star from the sky. how many discussions were there, the point of view was always cherished, that at first one should build at least one under the Ulyanovsk project, then take up the Storm.

        According to the final plan, they will have 6 AUGs.
        2 aircraft carriers with a springboard and 4 with catapults.

    It will be easier for them to buy these ships, unless, of course, they have their own capacities for their construction .. The main thing is that it doesn’t work out like with the Mistrals. So that they do not talk about the appropriateness of their presence in the Russian fleet, let them be. But what if...

      In Liaolin - tanks and warehouses.
      At Tip-001А, the hangar level was redesigned in order to maximize the area, with the removal of other rooms to other levels. Therefore, Granite Square is included in the hangar.

      They do not need aircraft-carrying cruisers, a couple of extra planes are more important. They have a lot of escort ships and they are being intensively built.

      Another point - rockets have become more compact. No need to have monsters. The Chinese supersonic two-stage YJ-18 climbs into the standard VPU cell. Of which, the destroyer 052D (launched 13 - the general 26 series with extension) - whole 64 pieces, and the destroyer 055 (launched the 2 - photo is 8, the total series is unknown) - 112 pieces.

        Thanks for the answer! I then decided to delete my comment, because there, in the video there was a mat.
        Let me remind you that I asked what anti-ship missiles are on Chinese aircraft carriers?

          According to 2хYJ-83K (variation from Exoset) - on each J-15 wink

    They can’t come up with anything themselves, all ideas are stolen or bought. If not for our Varyag, they would not have built this aircraft carrier on their own and in a hundred years.

      But they have their own aircraft carrier and a bunch of destroyers for escort. But actually, the Japanese also once started this way. Yes, and the Soviet Union in the era of industrialization, too, did not hesitate to buy a plant together with engineers.

        I can add, and now do not hesitate to take used factories in Italy, for example, and work. For example, MV Kingisepp, and similar in the region. And it will work.
