There are 333,360 pounds - 165 tons of multiple. The ship has two 18-foot (2160 ft) long chains with a total of 926 cufflinks. Each cuff is about 28 inches long, 17 inches wide and 5 inches thick. Each buckle weighs nearly 60 kg. It weighs more than 50 tons. China's Liaoning ship has a displacement of less than 70,000 tons, which is close to the enterprise number. The weight of the ship anchor is more than 100 tons. 


The anchor is the main component of the mooring equipment. The iron-type ship-stopping device is connected to the ship with an iron chain and thrown at the bottom of the water to stabilize the ship. It can be described as a ship's fixed sea artifact. The ship's anchor re-manufacturing process in Liaoning has also experienced a period of time. After all, the selection of aircraft carrier anchors and the integration of the anchoring machine, it is not an easy task without the accumulation of industrial technology in major countries.
