The AESA radars are installed, now they only have to finish installing the EMALS catapults and she'll be ready for sea trials within this year
Ok, do we finally get to see them try and take Taiwan or not?
I hope we get footage of it sinking.
2025 at the absolute earliest (according to their own timetables).
Literally never ever.
Are EMALS confirmed? I remember years ago people were saying it would be steam catapults
It was confirmed to be EMALS during the launch of the ship last year. They're now currently building the Type 076 LHA also with EMALS to complement the Type 075 LHDs, since the Chinese don't have VTOL aircraft so they'll just launch drones and carrier fixed wing to support their Marines instead
>The AESA radars are installed
May I see them?
>It was confirmed to be EMALS during the launch of the ship last year.
That means nothing coming from the proven lying CCP and chinsect media. May I see it working?
>They're now currently building the Type 076 LHA also with EMALS to complement the Type 075 LHDs
May I see them?
>Those were posts talking about problems that USS Ford had
May I see a report on that?
Didn't you see the flat panels above the bridge? It's just as clean looking as the Type 055
A flat panel doesn't mean AESA, retard. It could be a PESA - which I suspect both are. Nice 3M-54E, and 48N6 chinsect copy, too.
you're 100% retarded
he didn't ask for anything particularly difficult, for example here is a report by the CRS on the Ford's challenges:
>During the 8,157 catapult launches conducted through ISE 18, EMALS achieved a reliability of 272 mean cycles between operational mission failures (MCBOMF), where a cycle is the launch of one aircraft. This reliability is well below the requirement of 4,166
>The process for electrically isolating equipment is time-consuming. Spinning down the EMALS motor and generators alone is a 1.5-hour process, precluding some EMALS maintenance during flight operations.
this report is up-to-date as of 2022, caveat ISE 18 was early 2021 and significant process improvements may have happened since then
since you can't spend five seconds on baidu to win an e-argument but you can spend it to type something so inane I think you are in fact the retard
Did they overcome the heat issue?
I remember reading on weibo that they were having problems with the land based rails eating themselves inside thirty full-load launches if they tried faster than one launch every thirty minutes or something.
From what I remember the windings in the electromagnetic coils couldn't take the stress and kept shorting out.
They'll probably just live with low sortie rate
>less than one launch every thirty minutes
How the hell can you possibly sustain operations against an American carrier group at that rate? That sounds like it'd be absolutely useless.
>le hypersonic meme missile
one launch PER catapult
they've got 3 catapults
That's 3 planes, and we can assume they can at least bring that 30 minutes down to ~15-20 minutes
Those were posts talking about problems that USS Ford had. We still don't have info about the chink EMALS other than the fact that It is DC vs Ford class which is AC
I'm no expert on carrier ops but I swear I've seen people mention that a nuclear power plant is necessary for EMALS due to the power consumption.
Gas turbine can make the same kind of power as a reactor, it's just a matter of sustainment. A gas turbine or oil boiler steam turbine plant is actually physically smaller than a nuclear steam turbine plant of equivalent power output, but a nuke plant has her fuel in her plant, while the non-nuclear designs require more fuel storage and the more space you dedicate for that storage, the less space you have for the air ops stuff, so you have to choose between short legs and a powerful air wing or long legs and an undersized air wing.
The chinks will most likely choose short legs since their carriers will be operating within the first and second island chains as deterrance to the USN during their invasion of Taiwan.
Their Type 004 will be the nuclear powered one for flexing mucle near the US West Coast or anywhere else on the globe
Hard to flex when they have literally never run real bluewater ops.
>Hard to flex when they have literally never run real bluewater ops.
>dumb mutt saying dumb shit
>chinks get emals working before Brits/Americans
I'm sceptical but competition is good.
Nah if you have battery tech, metals good enough to handle load/pressure and good enough heat management you can do emals. Brits are currently researching it for the QE's and Turkey is looking into it too.
They've gone as far as Africa tbf, that puts them almost at France's level (with Britain and America being the only true blue water navies).
The chink cats still eat themselves. The wear rates are atrocious.
With this most recent achievement, fate has, in a single stroke, marked the decline of the west and spelled a new era of wondrous prosperity and peaceful global dominance for the Chinese dragon, which promises to firmly stand in sharp contrast to the historically bloody ascent of western powers and the cruel subjugation it brought to the humbler nations of the world.

will be the instruments with which China affirms its noble stewardship of 21st century world politics and offers the non-western world a different option; an humanist alternative to the depredations of Western leadership and the opportunity for a more equitable and dignified multilateralism.
Only 26 more to go and she can attain numeric parity with the west.
She'll need 52 more after that to reach actual parity.
I see China as being in a similar situation to Japan before WW2. Their greatest hope lies in a strong first surprise strike that debilitated the American navy and seizes Taiwan within a week, cause in any extended conflict they’re gonna lose.
Back in WW2 the US was the undisputed industrial and ship building power house of the world, we outproduced/outbuilt the Japs and the germans. But this time, the roles are reversed
Back in WW2, the USA had a steady supply of oil while Japan was forced to invade other nations to secure a source of oil. This time, the roles have stayed the same.
Did Japan share one of the largest land borders with Russia (a net exporter of oil and gas), who just recently got sanctioned by the West and have no choice but to find other markets?
Considering the USA has already demonstrated its skill at blowing up Russian oil pipelines I wouldn’t count on any oil from Russia.
And the Russians managed to freeze the oil Pipelines in the US with a cyberattack back in 2021: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonial_Pipeline_ransomware_attack
The USA has access to all the world's oil. China has access only to a single source. Also that cyberattack only froze a single pipeline, the vast majority of the USA never even felt the effects of it.
So the US is going to intercept the oil shipments from the UAE, Saudi Arabia towards China (their largest customer)? Do you think these OPEC countries won't do anything and just let the US fuck up their business?
>Do you think these OPEC countries won't do anything and just let the US fuck up their business?
They won't have a choice, their defense relies entirely on the USA to keep them protected.
Not anymore, Saudi Arabia have been building ballistic missiles with the help of China, and the UAE recently bought Chinese GMLRS and even their latest hypersonic anti-ship missile (YJ-21E):
And the OPEC countries can still implement an oil embargo to rekt the US and western economies just like they did in 1973: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1973_oil_crisis
>And the OPEC countries can still implement an oil embargo to rekt the US and western economies just like they did in 1973
Oh no, I guess the USA will just have to rely on North America's vast quantities of oil.
>He doesn't know about the importance of the petrodollar and why the federal government have been able to keep printing money and indebting themselves without much problem since 1975, when any other country in the world would have been suffering Weimar levels of inflation
And you think OPEC is going to crash the global economy just so that they can send oil to China?
>He doesn't know about the importance of the petrodollar
Additionally, the cyberattack didn't even stop the oil pumping functions of the pipeline. The military would've still had access to all the oil it needed. The only part that was targeted was the billing.
It also helps the US pre-wwii had a massive industrial base (partly from WWI) that was heavily underutilized at the time (great depression winding down) so when the US started to switch to war time production, the industry was only too willing and able to do so, and this buildup went on for years while the US supplied the allies and eventually joining the war after pearl harbor.
Plus making warships was a lot simpler back then. Civilian ships are still fairly simple, but nowadays warships are filled with all sorts of advanced tech that makes building them a much slower process.

Just like WW2 times!
>posting the ebin pig steel graph
Literally does not matter. The chinks have no micro chips
They make 7nm chips now when Intel struggled with 10nm and just gave up and started buying from TSMC instead: https://youtu.be/dQGnwKBxAKk
>They make 7nm chips now
In a lab? I'm not taking the time to watch your youtube propaganda.
>Intel struggled with 10nm
Intel SHIPPING 7nm 2023 (with some Meteor Lake chips produced by Intel, most TSMC), and 3nm Granite Rapids in 2024.
They literally have been secretly shipping 7nm cryto mining GPUs since 2021:
It's all thanks to one of the best TSMC engineers they poached after this guy went to Samsung and managed to beat TSMC into the 14nm FinFet race: https://youtu.be/-W0YdacKwUo
After getting BTFO, TSMC sued that guy for sharing trade secrets and for having broken his non-competition clause of 2 years, thus he was prevented from working for Samsung, but he was poached by the chinese SMIC instead. With that guy they can even make 5nm CPU's since TSMC already had a 5nm planned without EUV machines, just using DUV since It Fabs plan their nodes years before hand. So the hard-limit for non-EUV lithography is 5nm, which what the chinese SMIC is potentially capable of building despite the US preventing them from buying EUV machines.
>GPUs are the same as CPUs
are you retarded?
Ever heard of directCompute?
>With that guy they can even make 5nm CPU's since TSMC already had a 5nm planned without EUV machines, just using DUV
How will you produce steel when you have to import all the coal and iron ore needed to make it, mostly from the West - which would be blockaded in cases of aggression/war.
From Russia (who just got banned from exporting It's natural resources to the west), and the Eurasian countries (Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tazikistan, Turkmenistan and now Afghanistan), why do you think China spent so much money building roads and railways with Its "Belt & Road initiative? Did you really believe that they were just for debt trapping countries like MSM said?
>why do you think China spent so much money building roads and railways with Its "Belt & Road initiative?
Long-range missiles can easily take out those logistical hubs.
whats your alternative lol
Just strike the shipbuilding centers. Can't build ships if your
What if China decides to take out one US military base in retaliation for each logistical hub that the US attacks? Remember the ballistic missile strikes that Iran launched against the US base in Iraq which the US could do nothing about? The Iranian missile tech came from the China, which is why now even the Saudis are working with them for their own ballistic missiles:
>What if China decides to take out one US military base in retaliation for each logistical hub that the US attacks?
Then the US will just target the missile sites.
>Remember the ballistic missile strikes that Iran launched against the US base in Iraq which the US could do nothing about?
Couldn't, or didn't? Why do you think there were no injuries? Iran called the US to warn them, the US allowed it to happen. Irainian BMs, and chinsect knock-offs are easy to intercept. Just look at all the ones Saudi's have intercepted with US gear.
>there were no injuries?
Lol, USA said that to save face
So, you can show me the injured soldiers, or the bodies? Iran called and warned the US so they didn't get BTFO.
Shipping is many times more efficient for transporting bulk cargo than railways are, and trucks don't even hold a candle to either of them.
There are good reasons why the PRC buys from Brazil and Australia over other countries
technically you need to transport coal to the harbor, russian mines are closer to china than to the sea, or alternatively you can ship coal from nahotka
They already buy 1/3rd of Russian iron ore exports. Even it they buy 100% it won't put a dent in the amount lost from Australia alone. The rest won't make up for 15%, either. Then, China is going to be in a bidding war to get 100% of the production from said countries with the already established importers. So, the price is going to skyrocket as they would have the upper hand in negotiations with China, along with inefficient shipping causing prices to double. Why do you gays always default to "muh Russia will help", or just hand wave it away like it's such a simple thing to accomplish?
US enjoy suicide I see
Sounds like Trump's trade war was valid. Shame Republicans and Democrats are spineless and want Bob and Tayquan to have cheap shit from China and will do nothing about it.
What does a typical Chinese naval air wing look like? The entire Chinese naval aviation lineup is confusing as fuck to me.
>What does a typical Chinese naval air wing look like?
-J-15B (the CATOBAR version of the Su-33)
-J-35 (twin engine clone of the F-35)
-KJ-600 (clone of the E-2 Hawkeye with AESA radar)
-Z-20F (clone of the Sea Hawk)
Mainly J-15's and J-35 as their 5th gen.
I'm actually hyped to see Flankers operating CATOBAR.
>world production of steel dropped from 1.8 billion tons to 0.3, in one year, lowest since 1961

It doesn't matter b/c the US has enough operable idle plant to bury the Chinas.
It doesn't matter b/c shipyards and Drydocks are actually easy to build, and it would take just ONE large State-level Contractor to dig one out in one day, and that's not a joke.
And when the US puts shit on idle, it works forever when you pull the tags off and do the re-light maintenance.
China will be fucking regulated. America's industrial might is in plain sight, and it is far larger than East Asia.
there are only 11 commissioned CVNs in the USN you dumb shit.
This is a container ship with a runway paved on it and addons bolted to its size, isn't it.
it's never meant to underway in a real ocean, for longer than a few months, or beat 20 knots, so they don't need to give it a real hull either
