CVA 003 aircraft carrier

The construction of Chinas third aircraft carrier is making steady progress and the carrier, known as Type 003, may be launched as soon as February 2022. The Center for Strategic and International Studies, based in Washington D.C., said in a report 09 November 2021 that commercial satellite imagery of Jiangnan Shipyard in Shanghai shows that the installation of the vessels main external components is nearing completion. The visual appearance of the carrier has gone through a significant shift in the last few weeks, CSIS researchers said, adding that according to their analysis, the initial installation of major internal components has been completed. But the report said Even after launch, it will still be years before the Type 003 is commissioned into the PLAN and achieves initial operating capability .

Satellite imagery from a number of commercial companies showed that the shipbuilding project on a construction platform in the Shanghai Jiangnan Shipyard is the legendary third Chinese aircraft carrier. A satellite image was acquired on 17 April 2019 for the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, DC. When the main media in Hong Kong published the satellite photo, it marked the names of the various parts of the photo, including the textual description of the functional area division of the military shipyard under the Jiangnan Shipyard, and the prototype and size of the relevant part of the aircraft carrier. Hong Kong Apple Daily quoted analysts as saying that it is unclear what kind of power system, steam power or nuclear power is used by this aircraft carrier. Zheng Jiwen also said that the ejection system of this aircraft carrier may adopt a technically simple and reliable steam ejection.
