The island structure probably sitting in a similar position to the Nimitz class, but not as further back as the Ford class, in between the two elevators from the right side of the flight deck.Can't wait to see the next modules added and even more the next clearer fly-over images taken from an airliner!
The rumor about China obtaining the blueprint Ulyanovsk class did fly around for a quite long time.So either they chose to buy the Ulyanovsk design because it was quicker and cheaper than creating a new design or they couldn't design one on their own.
shorter and wider usually = slower but more stable. Better learning platform.
Initially, I didn't buy this rumor, but later when I saw the uncanny structural layout resemblance between the Type 003 and the Ulyanovsk class, I start to believe it might be true.
Both Type 003 and Ulyanovsk have this unique V-Shape stern.
If they still believe these magical boilers, then all I can say is good luck about to obtain this alien technology.From 逆襲 @horobeyo on 2021.02.26:
At first I also thought that the 20MW turbine generator was for nuclear submarine, and two were just right.
In this way, the power supply capacity of four sets of 80MW+ diesel generators in total for the 003 is impressive.
