they can air truck in the immediate short term, eg they've had access to Gwadar for a while and Djibouti was also setup as a critical hub for their resource imports

they'll get bums on seats to make the initial numbers and the build up their skills accordingly.

its a generational project IMO

kind of common knowledge, but usually the op-eds are wrapped in a bit of over egging and hysteria. this is one of the first balanced op-eds I've come across

PLAN is upgrading its ability to conduct amphibious operations. The new ship appears to match up well with the future LHA-8. able to deploy helos and landing craft.

China building navy’s biggest amphibious assault vessel, sources say | South China Morning Post

China building navy’s biggest amphibious assault vessel, sources say

China has started building a new generation of large amphibious assault vessels that will strengthen the navy as it plays a more dominant role in projecting the nation’s power overseas, military sources said.
The 075 Landing Helicopter Dock is now under construction by a Shanghai-based shipbuilding company, the sources said...

The Type 075 is able to deploy and house up to 30 armed helicopters. Six helicopters will be able to take off from the flight deck at the same time.
The vessels will also be able to deploy landing craft and troops, plus house command and control operations.

It is suggested that the new PLAN CV Type 001A is to be launched on 23/4/2017. This is the first Chinese built CV.

the chinese forrestal class with gentle ramp up front

interesting that they haven't picked up on any of the design developments re aircraft spacing and handling of recent times

it's still basically a mid 60's design - and it will have less offensive firepower than a forrestal.

Yep, but they are still learning. The next one along will be interesting in how far they have advanced. It's supposed to be a CATOBAR one.

if it looks like a beriev, takes off like a beriev, then the odds are its probably from ex beriev employers.

Possibly as we speak, it seems.

Funny that a country that bangs on about A2AD making carriers obsolete should waste so much time and effort cranking them out.
