    And add those two 052Bs with 48 missiles (non VLS tho) each. People always forget about them.

    I think ASM capacity should count.

    true .... non VLS like the ones on 052B are as effective as VLS in most of the time. And this baby have 16 YJ-83 (I believe these will be upgraded to YJ-18)

    3 x Type 052D launched in 2018

    16 launches in 76 months

    Rate is 1 in 4.75 months or average 2.5 per year

    Launch average will increase once the ships in the staggered phase launch quickly.. The keel laying average has been 3.25/ year. 26 in 8 years.. I have no reason to believe launch rate would be too different from this..

    The commissioning ceremony for 161 was conducted alongside 987 in recent days.

    That's one way to save money on commissioning celebrations, just do two or more at the same time.

    Now you know why PLA officers like mass weddings.

    I am thinking April 23, we may see mass commissioning.

    For those who don't know what April 23 means, that is the PLA Navy birthday.

    Among the ships, maybe "Nanchang" and "Shandong."
