    They are slowing down if they are only building one more when those sheds can build four.


    This shed is screaming for a Type 054B to fill it up.

    There is a strong possibility that this "61st" might be the 60th in an earlier time period while it was still in the shed and before it was launched, since its impossible to date both these pictures.

    For many years this shed has been busy to the brim, often assembling a Type 054A with a Type 056 alongside. Military tugs and Chinese Coast Guard ships also went through this.

    Then ... its almost empty.

    The picture of the near empty shed with only one Type 056A remaining screams to me like "Last ship, contract done!".

    The question now, is what is next.
