There was a tech demonstrator for stealth ucav which was flown in 2013,what happened to it?
Many prototypes and tech demos have been flown since 2013! Hard to know which one.

For naval, UCAVs will be available on LHDs too not just carriers.

This is Type 076 LHD. Many say China will forgo the manned VTOL on amphibs and go with drones and EMALS:

So how big will Type 004 be?

The Type 003 will be around 321m (1056 feet) and about 85-90,000 tons.

The USS Ford is 332m (1092 feet) and 100000 tons.

The Type 004 in the representation is much larger than the Type 003 and would be as large as the Ford at least, likely even bigger!

That would make it the biggest warship of all times!

Would type 004 be nuclear powered?

That is what most pundits say. But no official word yet. But very hard to think anything but nuke would be able to drive 100K tons and be able to power EMALS.

But some Chinese posters say EMALS program came in conjunction with China's IEP development. Even the Type 003 is already odd in that it could use EMALS and carry 85K tons with conventional power. So possible that IEP had advanced to point that it could power the Type 004 too.

But more likely to be nuke.
