    10 x Type 052D commissioned

    16 x Type 052D/L launched

    20 x Type 052D/L identified

    what is the final estimate ?

    strange thing is all 3 rates are 2-3 per year

    According to the Chinese Wikipedia entry of the CIWS system (officially designated as H/PJ-11), Type 052D Chengdu was the first ship of the class that was equipped with it:

    Refer to the first mention of the keyword "052D" in the page.

    Not sure where to put this one since it involves four different ships.

    You got a task force from the South China Seas Fleet headed out. That looks like Hefei and Yucheng paired again --- these ships are the ones paired and visited the Russian naval review in St. Petersburg in 2017. The LPD is Changbaishan and the AOR is Honghu. These ships are all vets of blue water operations and escort task forces. This task force will be headed to the Indian Ocean given its disposition, which means along with the 31st Escort Task Force, there will be two PLAN task forces in the Indian Ocean. It should be noted that the 31st itself consists of a frigate and another LPD, putting two LPDs in the Indian Ocean simultaneously.

    A Chinese naval escort fleet, composed of three vessels - the Wuhu, Handan, and Dongpinghu, arrived in Manila on Thursday for a five-day goodwill visit to the Philippines.
