The latest design, which confirms that the vessel will not feature a ski-jump, features a twin-island arrangement. The computer-generated imagery (CGI) also appears to confirm that the service plans to operate Lockheed Martin F-35B short take-off and vertical landing (STOVL) Joint Strike Fighters from the vessel. Naval helicopters, somewhat similar in appearance to the Sikorsky/Lockheed Martin MH-60R Seahawk, can also be seen on the carrier.
最新的设计证实了该舰将不会有滑跃斜坡,并采用了双舰岛布局。该服役计划的计算机生成的图像(CGI)也似乎确认计划从舰上操作洛克希德·马丁公司的F-35B短距起降和垂直降落(STOVL)联合打击战斗机。航母上也可以看到外观与西科斯基/洛克希德·马丁公司MH-60R“海鹰”相似的海军直升机。
 
The RoKN pointed out, however, that the latest conceptual design can be further revised during the basic and detailed designed stages.
然而,韩国海军(RoKN)指出,最新的概念设计可以在基本和详细的设计阶段进一步修改。
 
A second image provided by the service shows the vessel, which is being acquired under the LPX-II Project, operating as part of a carrier group alongside what appear to be KSS-III-class submarines as well as KDX-2-, KDX-3 Batch II-, and KDDX-class destroyers, and a Soyang (AOE-II)-class logistics support ship.
该服役计划提供的第二张图片显示,该舰是在LPX-II项目下获得的,作为一个航母群的一部分,与KSS-III级潜艇以及KDX-2、KDX-3级II级和KDDX级驱逐舰以及一艘“昭阳”(AOE-II)级后勤支援舰一起操作。
 
The latest developments come after South Korean officials and defence researchers held their first meeting in late October 2020 to discuss the development of “core technologies” for the carrier. The country’s Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) announced at the time that a total of seven institutions and companies, including the Agency for Defense Development, Pusan National University, and LIG Nex1, would take part in the development process, which is expected to be completed by 2024.
最新的发展是在韩国官员和国防研究人员于2020年10月底举行了第一次会议,讨论航母“核心技术”的发展。该国国防采购计划管理局(DAPA)当时宣布,包括国防发展局、釜山国立大学和LIGNex1在内的总共七个机构和公司将参加开发过程,预计将于2024年完成。
 
As an example of core technologies, DAPA cited the planned development of coating materials to protect the flight deck of the 40,000-tonne carrier.
作为核心技术的一个例子,DAPA列举了计划中的涂层材料的开发,以保护4万吨航空母舰的飞行甲板。
