Description: The Type 002, formerly the Chinese Aircraft Carrier 2025, is the first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to be build in China to equip the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN). With a full displacement of 85,000 tons the ship will carry an air wing of more than 80 aircraft including the Chinese version of the Sukhoi Su-33 Sea Flankers, called the J-15, and helicopters. The J-23 stealth fighter may also be embarked upon the new aircraft carrier. The lead ship is expected to be commissioned by 2024. In November 2018 the ship was already under construction.
