A Chinese shipbuilder accidentally revealed its major navy plans

Dalian Shipyard Dalian Shipyard, part of CSIC, is where China's first domestic carrier, CV-17, was built.

CSIC's Dalian Shipyard, which refurbished the aircraft carrier Liaoning, and launched China's first domestically built carrier, CV-17, in 2017, will presumably build China's first "Type 003" CVN.

The Type 095 SSN would be built at CSIC's Bohai Shipyard, which is China's sole nuclear submarine shipyard.

This submarine is presumably quieter than the air-independent propulsion (AIP) Type 039B Yuan submarine; it'll likely have quieting measures like a single hull, a new AIP system, and lithium-ion batteries.

It could be the precursor to larger Chinese armed UUVs carrying torpedoes and missiles.
