    Dalian flyover... Admittedly not the best quality, but these were taken within the past 36 hours. First photo shows the various DDGs under construction, and the second photo the carrier.

    now noticed the tweet https://twitter.com/PDChina/status/1110101513894977536
    apparently related to what I had noticed earlier this evening (https://news.usni.org/2019/03/25/42133)
    People's Daily, Chinaā€¸Verified account @PDChina 11h11 hours ago




    China has lodged representations with the US and urges the US side to abide by the agreed #OneChina principle and carefully handle Taiwan-related issues after two US warships sailed through the Taiwan Strait. (file pic)

    EDIT now I read

    Here's some new submarine with a reduced sail. I've seen the first pic before.

    Can anyone recognize the ship types around the sub? It could help us further guesstimate the size of the submarine...

    Posted by LKJ86 at the PDF. This appears to be rehearsal with Liaoning leading the formation. I believe 101 Nanchang is among those in the formation, along with a Type 901.

    Extremely layman guess. Boat appears to be a small sized ferry, likely 20-30m long.

    Submarine is approx 50-90m long.

    A frigate flotilla comprised of the guided-missile frigates Ningde (Hull 510) and Zhaoqing (Hull 563) as well as the guided-missile boat Lianjiang attached to the navy under the PLAN Eastern Theatre Command in formation in waters of the East China Sea during a maritime training exercise in early April, 2019.
