    Again they will not attempt landing unless they have air superiority and silence those missile battery!
    Then what is the type 55 or type 52 for they are designed for anti air warfare with their surface to air missile

    That's easier to say than do. Even if you think you have silenced them all, some will remain. And just one or two can make life of your shiny new LHD very bad and very short.

    That is what HQ9 or HQ10 are for to kill the straggler those LHD are not defenseless they are equipped with CIWS. China has at least 1000 gen 4 fighter jet Taiwan only has 300 the most , Not counting 2000 short to intermediate range missile. They will make mince meat out of Taiwan missile and radar battery

    Well, with these pic...I am a believer. Looks like the PLAN has a large, and nice LHA/LHD. I am just surprised they did not make at least one of the elevators a deck edge elevator.

    That is equally true to all LHD/LHAs of any Navy, isn't it? There is no 100% guarantee of eliminating every missile of your opponent, in real life one has to take a reasonable risk in fighting.

    I thought deck edge elevator is only because of operation of STOVL which need the aft area for high load take off and also maximum operation area on the deck. Since IMO PLAN does not have the intension of STOVL (I am almost certain), there is no need for that arrangement. I know the RAN intends their Canberra class for F-35B without a deck edge elevator, but that is another story as RAN is not going or trying to match the capability of USN, so not much need for it either.

    Yes, it is the model of 075 said to be seen in Qinghua university. Only difference is the elevator being off centre in the model.

    Dude it doesnt even look similar.
    The real 075 has a lot of sticking out parts on the hull.
    Different elevators and conning tower...

    Of course, agreed. But, it's one thing to risk a high value unit like a LHD against some Thirld World country that most probably can't hurt you, pretty much a MO of the USN in a last few decades- and something completely another is to send her into Taiwan Strait during an all-out war to make an invasion that you can just as well, if not better, do without her.
