As impressive as that looks, the utility of a ski jump-equipped CV is limited by the relatively small MTOW of the aircraft on board. The Chinese realise this, which is why they're moving away from Soviet-derived,  heavily armed, ski jump-equipped STOBAR designs like the Lianoning and Shandong towards a US-style CATOBAR configuration with EMALS (look up "Type 003 aircraft carrier"). Still very cool to see a non-Western approach to naval aviation.

HAH....  we saw this every night at 11:00 PM when KENS CHANNEL 5 went OFF THE AIR..... and they would play the Star Spangled Banner and then read the poem "High Flight" while showing film of a 104 zooming and rolling through the clouds.  Kids today don't know what "going off the air" means....
