    it is widely accepted in CHinese cyber space that the "shocking toy" is "electronmagnetic catapult for aircraft carriers.

    one big enterprise in Hunan province says openly in its yearly report that it is producing "ZX electrical machine,superpower stored energy electricl machine,permanent magnet pod propelling electricl machine for a certain 'big shp project'".

    some guys from CD also suggested that " a certain big ship project" in fact is "CHinese indigenious aircraft carrier".

    the enterprise in fact is producing "electronmagnetic catapult " for China's home-grown AC.

    or it can be a electromagnetic rail to launch UAVs or UCAVS from a destroyer.

    in fact ,electromagnetic tech would be general tech for lots of appliances,including UAV-launching and capapult.

    I think that PLA will invest on electromagnetic catapult and steam catapult at the same time ,for less risk.

    But in a long run, electromagnectic capapult will be used on china's AC.

    Rationally, I would agree just with above. Although operational EMALs will take quite long time before throwing naval fighters off the Chinese carrier.
