IDENTIFIED UNDER CONSTRUCTION: China's Second Aircraft Carrier

Pictures surfaced today of a module at Shanghai's Changxing Island Shipyard appear to be proof of a second Chinese carrier under construction.  Besides the telltale profile of the inner hull of a KUZNETSOV-class carrier,  the module features a well-defined hangar and elevator cutout.

Additionally a possible catapult trench has been identified, lending credence to postulation that this first all-Chinese carrier will be a refinement of the LIAONING/EX-VARYAG Soviet design, most likely designated 001A-class.

Log in to the China-Defense Forum for additional discussion about this and other Chinese military developments.

Some reports have claimed that this module is half the size of real thing. If true, the yard simply produced it to prove its capability.

Now that you have considered some of the reasons why new constructions are so desirable, you might want to discuss these ideas with your spouse and your financial adviser. Buying a house is a serious investment, and starting a building project is even more of an undertaking. You must be both mentally and financially prepared for the new challenges that come with having your own home. It is certainly a blessing, but it is also a lot of responsibility. Be aware of the commitment you are making. More Information
