The ship is both Catapult Assisted Take-Off But Arrested Recovery (CATOBAR) and Short Take-Off But Arrested Recovery (STOBAR) capable.

What is interesting is that the carrier’s island has been shifted inwards to allow jets to park on the starboard side of the island.

The mast is also similar to the British Type 45 destroyer’s design.
