    this is kind of interesting, type 22 is actually sailing around in downtown Shanghai. In case you don't know where it is, on one side of the river is the Shanghai's financial tower and TV tower. On the other side of the river, it is the famous "Nanking street" in Shanghai.

    Indeed it is very interesting. Does anyone know that if the government has officially confirmed the existence of this Craft yet?

    Unless the pictures are PSed (which I have not found any of the usual flaws yet), it doesn't even look like the craft is disguised at all (like the new car tests)

    There have been plenty of pics of it around Shanghai before the paint job. The PLAN doesn't seem to be hiding this one.

    well, as we know, there were 2 shipyards building 054. One is Hudong in Shanghai that built 525 and the other is huangpu in guangzhou that built 526. A week or 2 ago, we saw the pictures of 054A in Shanghai surfacing and now we have the first picture of 054A (actually, kanwa surprisingly had the first) of Huangpu built in Guangzhou.

    Nice, the super structure looks like the 054 which is a good sign

    Hmmm...Am I seeing things, or are the last two digits on that FAC, "49". That implies that quite a few more have been built.

    and it seems like it is not using propeller, but rather steerable waterjets as proposion units. This will greatly increase its speed. Coupled with the catamaran hull design, this is cerntainly a very capable ship in terms of manuverability.

    yeah, we know a lot have been built, but not sure how many.

    If PLAN was nice and actually built from 08 all the way to 49, that would make this the 42nd type 22.

    Re: PLAN Pictures Thread 4

    42nd already? That's.............fast production...............too fast? This boat belonging to another fleet would make more sense.....

    Those waterjets are small.........and this ignorant man here isn't so sure that 4 waterjets will be adequate enough for power....

    I want Asia on my front porch and America as my backyard.
    Disclaimer: By America, I meant the Continent. And yes, I know Asian homes have neither a backyard nor a porch in the American sense.
