    That looks like three 052D and one 055 on the dock. On the side of it might be modules for two more ships, one might be a 052D and the other, potentially, a 055.

    Of the fitting and in trials ships, only one 052D remains, along with one 055. As previously observed, two 052Ds have left the nest to their respective fleets, one 055 has been moved to a dry dock somewhere not in this picture.

    Around the end of next year, it'll again cause an inflection point where there would be a lot of large ships put into service together... By that point PLAN would likely have a total of 20 extremely capable destroyers.. Consisting only type 052d and type 055.. I know there's a case to be made for the other not so old destroyers of the PLAN, but these 052d and 055 will be first ships to be in service till the middle of this century..

    Looks fast

    Next year we will see another frenzy where these units are launched in quick succession

    We know the forward units can be “floated” or “rolled” back for next units at the front to be laid down

    Very good work at DL

    According to CSIC's official Weibo account, a dedicated research institute has been established for 'electronic information and warfare' systems.

    A rough translation, and feel free to correct me:
