Liaoning - Specifications

The specifications of the Liaoning are poorly characterized in the open literature. Part of the problems is that the specifications of the original Kuznetsov class were poorly characterized in the open literature, while another part of the problem is that some sources fail to appreciate that the Liaoning has been modified from the original configuration - certainly the armament, and probably the propulsion.
