            Is there any actual reason for the pointed bow besides wanting to be special snowflakes who don't want to use decadent globohomo nazi designs? The only thing I can think of is that a lot of older Russian ships had armored bows that served as an icebreaker.

              It's useful for flipping your pilots into the sea as they takeoff so they don't have to suffer being Russian anymore and ramming globohomo carriers.

          I think it's already quite obvious form the paper model and the gay pride paint job, but whoever made this knows nothing about carrier design.

          All carriers have their island on the starboard side except for two ww2 japanese carriers. This is because when shit happens during landing, the pilots instinctively turn to the left.

            True but imagine being a model builder/designer (though obviously not of the naval variety) and getting such a project
            Why wouldn't you go absolutely wild with it?
            It won't be built anyway

            Actually, it's leftover from the days of propeller-driven carrier planes. Single-engine prop planes naturally yaw to the left when out of control.

            Here's an article that details why, if you're interested:
            https://www.boldmethod.com/learn-to-fly/aerodynamics/why-you-need-right-rudder-on-takeoff-to-stay-on-the-centerline-ground-roll/

            Incidentally, this effect being unusually strong on it was one of the factors why the F4U Corsair was such a notorious bitch to land safely.

        Here's how Russian industry works:
        1. Behave as if the best-case scenario is going to happen, i.e. solicit govt contracts, grease palms, line up customers, get investors
        2. Spend all the money on hookers and cars
        3. The best case scenario doesn't happen; you're off the hook for all the money

        My favorite is comparing the AK with Kaga as both are similarly sized ships both in dry dock at the same time. While the AK has a mess of a rusted, cluttered deck with dirt ramps in the dry dock, Kaga has a clean and organized work effort. Also despite Kaga going through a much more major refit, Kaga has progressed 100x faster than the AK has.

        They just need to let the poor girl die in peace but there ego is so high they never will. The one combat mission it went on ended in disaster. They had to send the air wing to a land base because of all the issues they were having with planes crashing. Russia would be 100 times better off spending the money on something more useful than trying to pretend they need or even have the ability to operate a carrier.

    Its amazing how they're willing to announce all knew capital class super ships
    but never seem to think it might be more believable if they announce a massive upgrade to a shipyard to produce it as well.
    I understand that increasing a dockyard's ability to produce a larger ship isn't something that can be done overnight but it seems less embarrassing to announce you're going to at least TRY to make improvements and increased tonnage size to one of your dockyards rather than continue to make announcements of ships everyone who actually knows about their naval capabilities can't actually build

            More than ten I think. There’s that recent pic of them building five at a time-in their second biggest shipyard.

            If you’ve ever worked with Changs you’ll know that they usually just like building/replacing broken shit rather than doing repair work and maintenance on old shit-if they can afford it. I’ll bet anything that they’re only planning on using their current destroyers for about 5-7 years each, pawning them off to some smaller shithole like Thailand or Pakistan when they get worn out, then building new ones. Probably good for shipyard business too. Russians, however, do not have anywhere near the industry to maintain their current fleet let alone a load of pseudo-disposable Chinese destroyers.

        More than ten I think. There’s that recent pic of them building five at a time-in their second biggest shipyard.

        If you’ve ever worked with Changs you’ll know that they usually just like building/replacing broken shit rather than doing repair work and maintenance on old shit-if they can afford it. I’ll bet anything that they’re only planning on using their current destroyers for about 5-7 years each, pawning them off to some smaller shithole like Thailand or Pakistan when they get worn out, then building new ones. Probably good for shipyard business too. Russians, however, do not have anywhere near the industry to maintain their current fleet let alone a load of pseudo-disposable Chinese destroyers.

          So far the ships they've built for those countries have been brand new, not second hand. I doubt Thailand would accept a busted frigate since the last time China offered 4 new Type 054s, the Thais just went with just ONE custom South Korean frigate instead.

          Tbf, not just the crews fault, but the leaderships. They received readiness report that showed like three quarters of her weapons were out of action, half her engines were emergency-use only due to being like 30k+ workhours beyond replacement date, 5/6th of her onboard firefighting equipment was missing etc. And decided that yes, this is satisfactory and she can be sent into combat like that.

            I’m judging this “disposable Chinese ship doctrine” on the fact that China possesses the world’s largest shipbuilding industry by a huge margin at this point and can churn out frigates and DDs with the speed and intensity of Warhammer orcs. I don’t like the CCP, Xi Jinping, and I’m not a communist or authoritarian, but it’s an objective fact that China can crank out both civilian ships and warships at a rate that leaves just about everybody except maybe South Korea in the dust.

            Maybe I’m wrong though. the Chinese will inevitably have to slow down production and try to find some sort of peak number of naval forces to maintain and stop building so many so quickly. Then it’s a question of whether they bother maintaining their already-enormous fleet of Destroyers/frigates/cruisers or just scrapping them and building new replacements.

              This has crossed my mind before actually. Sure they can shit out as many ships as they want if they but if they expand naval personnel accordingly and stuff their ships full of inexperienced crewmen and newly minted officers that's gonna seriously degrade the PLAN's actual performance vs its paper performance.

              To add onto this There’s also the fact that building new ships instead of bothering with serious maintenance would, by some metrics, stimulate their economy in the same way the CCP builds all those empty apartment blocks to stimulate it already. It’d keep their shipyards in business and always working on new shit.

              There's a wee bit of a difference between "just" having the biggest shipbuilding industry in the world, and being able to afford replacing your whole navy once a decade.

              One is worrying, the other is GAME OVER, MAN! levels of industrial overmatch comapred to everybody else.

              They'll learn what every pre-eminent naval power has learned - its a huge up-front cost in investment and a massive bill in maintenance, and if you're not the single pre-eminent naval power on Planet Earth then there's no point to investing at all, because your navy will immediately be sunk by the USN at the opening move of any conflict and all of your investment will be for naught when it could have gone into infrastructure, training troops, or building bunkers in the hills.

              If it ever becomes an issue that the Chinese Navy were seriously threatening American Hegemony over the world's waters you could expect all global trade in or out of China to be locked down overnight. This investment in a navy is purely a result of the delusion that any nation is going to be allowed to project power other than the US, at this point, because China sovereign and Da West Can't Stop Us, or something. Even a casual glance at the strength of the U.S' ability to project power would tell you that its a dangerous delusion at best.

              I think the current generation of ships that are being built, the Type 052 destroyers and Type 055 cruisers, are intended to be in service for a very long time, but I think this is defo true of many of the previous generations of ships and many of their frigates, they won't be kept in service because they were built in large part to stimulate the ship-building and R&D industries until they could build large numbers of relatively advanced and modern vessels. The Chinese to some extent state this openly, they have said that Type 052's will replace older ships in their inventories.

          This is just a case of one language translating poorly into another language. Chinese doesn't have a separate word for different branches of the military, "army" is just the general term for any large military command. A more accurate translation of how it sounds to a Chinese speaker would be something like "People's Liberation Armed Forces' Seagoing Force." The Chinese word that is used for Navy is just a portmanteu of the words for ocean and military.

    I remember when I played Hearts of Iron 2 years ago and managed to conquer most of Eurasia as Poland but then had trouble going against any other remaining major power since I had nearly no naval tech and building a real fleet would take years. I ended up gearing the bulk of Eurasian industry and manpower into building hundreds of basic bitch destroyers and then just bum rushing the British and US fleets. The destroyers died en masse but they'd get into punching distance and get the job done eventually.

    exactly what are 6 helicopters going to contribute to an opposed landing?

    ships like that exist solely for bullying poor people. an opposed landing against a competent military will require like 10 carriers with their full complements supported by land-based long range strike aircraft like the f111 or strategic bombers with precision munitions for air support.

    for a START.

    and then you'd need thousands of landing craft and hundreds of troopships.

    this idea that anyone is going to be doing amphibious assaults that require actual dedicated equipment is laughable. if you're bullying poor people just bomb their soviet-era anti-air with $6,000,000 missiles and then land on their runways.

    if you're doing amphibious assaults against a competent enemy then fuhgeddaboutit.
