    I would not be surprised if China got access to the blueprints of the Mistral by this time.
    Not that they would need them given their current naval industry construction capabilities.

    no, China wouldn't need Mistral design ... but it is always useful to look at other good design like Mistral, you would always learn something from it ;)

    Mistral is just too small for China (~20k tons), China would build in my opinion about 40k tons LHD

    but I thought the Chinese LHD was designed to be <40k more like 30k?

    Not trying to assert I am certain of the projected tonnage of the first Chinese LHA, but among these three links, the National Interest article is based on a Minnie Chan SCMP piece again citing her "anonymous sources close to the Chinese military", the English Wikipedia entry cites Minnie Chan, a Sina article without references, and a Navy Recognition piece I am uncertain if is credible.

    That leaves https://errymath.blogspot.com/2017/03/type-075-landing-helicopter-dock.html#.XCv7e_yDNTZ. If you click "read the full article" link it will be a "page not found" error.

    Does anyone have any take on its credibility? Thanks in advance.

    The link is totally fine, works just fine, it does show 40,000 tonnes

    I don't think you get what I said.

    https://errymath.blogspot.com/2017/03/type-075-landing-helicopter-dock.html#.XCwdc_yDNTa works fine but does not give where or whom the tonnage came from.

    Inside the link, there is a "Read the FULL article" link, which is http://www.eastpendulum.com/type-07...onstruction-de-son-premier-porte-helicopteres, and it cannot be found.

    Also as I said the other two links (Wikipedia and National Interest) do not seem credible.

    Going on eastpendulum site, I found that article: http://www.eastpendulum.com/type-07...onstruction-de-son-premier-porte-helicopteres
    It seems to be the one you are looking for. It seems accurate.

    Yes, thank you.

    The exact tonnage given in the article is 36,000 tons. That sounds reasonable, but is again not explained - I wonder how the author knew that's the plan.
